The Cooperative connects customers and self-employed, independent contractors in an initial referral. If you wish to have the cleaner return on a regular basis or for a follow-up visit, please contact the cleaner directly. You will be furnished with name and contact details prior to your first cleaning.
Who do I pay?
Please pay directly to the cleaner at the end of the visit.
What method of payment do you accept?
Cash or by check (made payable to the cleaner).
Should I tip?
Gratuity is not included in the price quote, but tipping is customary on the first visit. We recommend between 10 - 20% of the service price.
How much of the payment goes to the cleaning provider?
100% of the price of the cleaning goes to the provider.
How do I know the person who arrives at my home is with Si Se Puede?
Please ask the cleaning provider to show you her We Can Do It! ID card when they arrive. If the provider doesn’t have their ID with them, please call our office so that we can confirm they are with Si Se Puede.
How long will the cleaning take?
There is no estimated average length for a cleaning, as all homes are different. Si Se Puede does not work on an hourly basis, and we give ourselves enough time to do a very thorough cleaning. When booking your first cleaning, please keep in mind that it might take at least several hours for service to be complete.
May I leave my home during the cleaning?
We recommend that you meet the cleaner at the beginning of service so that you can show them your home, where you keep your supplies, and give any special instructions. Unless you wish to, it’s not necessary to remain for the duration of the cleaning.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule my appointment?
To cancel or reschedule your appointment, please contact the cleaner at least 24 hours in advance via text message to the cleaner's mobile phone. We will provide you with the cleaner’s name and contact details prior to your first cleaning.
What if something goes wrong?
Please inspect the space before the cleaner leaves so that any oversights can be corrected. If you are otherwise dissatisfied, please contact the office within 24 hours of the service.
I am dissatisfied with the service. What should I do?
Please call us at 347-662-2440 within 24 hours of your cleaning visit. If you are dissatisfied, the cleaning provider(s) can return within 72 hours of the first visit to do any unfinished work.

Does Si Se Puede! provide cleaning products?
We ask that customers have the following cleaning materials ready before the cleaning service begins:
- Vacuum cleaner, with attachments & a fresh vacuum bag - in good working condition
- Clean mop or 'Swiffer', plus bucket
- Dustpan & broom
- Rubber gloves
- Rags and paper towels
- Toilet brush
- Sponges and brush

What cleaning supplies do you use?
We ask that each client provide their own cleaning supplies, including liquids & tools. The reason for this is that everyone has their own preferences and needs when it comes to cleaning products. Some of our customers may be allergic to certain products or have a preference for all-natural cleaning solutions. For your health and ours, we prefer to use the most effective and least toxic products available.
