What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We base our fee to refresh your loft on several factors. After years of experience, we have determined the best way to estimate how much time will be needed to do a deep clean based on the answers you provide.

How did you get started doing this type of work?
For years, our founder has been complemented on how clean and organized she has maintained her own home. As the mother of five children (whose favorite color is white!), maintaining a clean home was especially impressive. After retiring from an award winning career as a customer service representative, she decided to help some friends keep their homes neat and tidy. Word quickly spread about her efficiency in getting the job done and her attention to detail. Her plan to help some friends quickly evolved into a small housekeeping business for single family homes in the San Gabriel Valley.
She has now expanded her services to the Downtown Los Angeles area, where she and her team can help more people who perhaps have less time to focus on cleaning. Oranges & Lemons hopes to make housekeeping affordable and accessible to everyone in DTLA. We clean toilets so you don't have to.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Oranges & Lemons works with individuals and businesses. We are happy to help our downtown LA neighbors keep their homes and businesses comfortably clean.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Parking can be difficult in DTLA. Many housekeepers charge extra to cover parking fees or arrive late and frustrated because they did not expect traffic or street closures. Since we are based in the neighborhood (on 6th and Broadway) we are able to walk to many of our appointments and avoid many of these problems.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Be sure to ask if the quote will ensure enough time to really clean your loft. Also inquire if the inside of the microwave will be cleaned or if that is an additional cost.
Since you live downtown, ask them if they know how to safely removing hard water stains from chrome and glass. This is very common in our neighborhood.
