Do You Offer Deep Cleans and Move In/Out Cleans?
At Ecovista, we are well aware that sometimes you need an in-depth cleaning after a move or simply because spring has arrived (ex: baseboards, walls, inside the cupboard, etc.).
Our rate is $37.55 per hour (taxes and cleaning products included) for this type of service. You can call us at (819) 303-3088 or send us an email request and we will be happy to give you an idea of the time it will take to complete the service, based on your requests.
What Should I Do Before the Cleaning Professional Arrives?
If you want us to skip a particular room, you can leave the door closed or leave a comment in the space reserved for this purpose on the booking form.
We appreciate, as much as possible, that the customer leaves the floors and counters free when the cleaning professional visits, as this allows him/her to ensure quality cleaning. If possible, please store any valuables before your appointment (money, jewelry, etc.).
Finally, please place your functional vacuum cleaner and garbage bags in plain view so that the Professional can get to work as quickly as possible.

Trust & safety
Do I Have to Be Home During My Cleaning?
Whether or not you’re home during your booking is up to you! Although we strongly recommend that you be present for your Professional’s first visit to ensure that everything is to your liking. If you’re a recurring client, we will offer you a key lockbox (Airbnb standard) that you put out on your cleaning day. This is the safest and easiest option in our industry. You can order one for your next cleaning in the ”extras” section on the booking form. If you’re absent, you’ll be prompted to give your Cleaning Professional entry instructions. Here’s a few examples:
- A keybox
- Leave a garage code (unlock the house door that leads into the garage)
- Leave your door electronic code if you have one
- Hide a key
- Ask a neighbor or the doorman to open the door
