When will my Home Help Team arrive?

Your designated Home Help Team will arrive within 1 hour of your appointment time. If your Home Help Team is ahead of schedule/behind schedule on the day, Goldilocks will get in touch with you as soon as possible via phone to provide an updated estimate time of arrival.

Do I need to be home when the Goldilocks Team arrives?

For cleaning services, you can stay for the entire duration of the clean, or be home to let the team in and then leave while they conduct the clean, or you do not need to be home at all and can leave a keysafe for the Team to let themselves in and lockup after they are finished.

For Home Organisation and Home Help Services, we recommend that you are home to discuss your help needs and it is up to you whether you stay or leave once the Team starts.

 

Can I leave a key for the Goldilocks Home Help Team?

Yes, if you are not able to be home to let the Home Help Team in, it is standard practice for our Clients to install a keysafe and provide Goldilocks with the keysafe code. Please note, Goldilocks do not accept keys from our clients for us to store offsite and bring with us to a booking. 

What do I need to do before my Goldilocks Cleaning Team arrives? 

As much as possible, we recommend that you clear away any clutter off of benchtops and tabletops and any items picked up from your floor. Of course, if this is not possible, our team will discuss your home help and cleaning needs with you to make sure we provide you with the best level of service.

We also request that you place any delicate, fragile, antique, heirloom or valuable items you might normally have out on display into a cupboard or box out of the way before our cleaning team arrives. Our team take every care when cleaning, however, accidents can sometimes happen and Goldilocks is not responsible for any damage that might occur to items that are left out during your clean.

I have a pet, what do I need to do before my Goldilocks Home Help Team arrives? 

We love animals, however, we ask that you keep any pets safely secured either in your backyard or in a room while your Home Help Team conducts your service. We also ask that any pet toys, food bowls and kitty litter be picked up off the floor or packed away so that our team can provide you with the best clean possible. 

Are any harsh chemicals used when cleaning my home?

Goldilocks exclusively uses eco-friendly cleaning products with no harsh chemicals. We use high quality micro-fibre equipment that provide spotless results, superior to the results from using chemicals!

Will I have the same Home Helper each time?

Mostly, yes. We schedule our regular services in a way that endeavours to have the same Team conduct your service each time. However, occasionally circumstances such as illnesses, emergencies and holidays may impact your usual Team's availability on a given day and an alternative Goldilocks Home Helper will be assigned to your booking. In most cases, your regular Home Helper will be reassigned to you when they are available again. 

Do I need to confirm my regular service each week/fortnight?

Goldilocks is pleased to advise that you do not need to confirm your regular appointments the day before they are scheduled. Your Goldilocks Home Helpers will arrive within 1 hour of your regular scheduled appointment time each week/fortnight. 

Do I need to provide any cleaning equipment?

We supply all of our own products and equipment for every clean to ensure you receive the highest quality house clean, surpassing expectations every time.​ With our exclusive use of environmentally friendly cleaning products and no harsh chemicals, you can have peace of mind that your family are safe and the environment is protected.
