If you have +10 employees or your business is open to the public then areas such as reception, bathrooms and kitchens and rubbish removal generally need daily attention.

Where possible, Star Express involves the products, methods and business practices employed by companies to promote both a healthier home and world environment. Green cleaning products do not contain ingredients with ozone depleting substances or flammable chemicals that may irritate skin. Truly green products do not kill harmful bacteria and germs. Companies with green cleaning services should use highly-concentrated cleaners that require less product, as well as employ business practices that encourage using recyclable packaging. Where possible, Star Express uses locally purchased and environmentally friendly products. Star Express believes in an open, honest approach to help you find the right balance between environmentally-safe products and a clean, disinfected home that protects your family from unhealthy germs.

Our housekeepers offer consistent, quality cleaning. Like all relationships, however, miscommunications occur and we may make a mistake.

Mildew is a type of fungus that can be found growing on a multitude of surfaces where moisture and temperature levels are high. Mildew can typically be identified by its colour ranging from a pinkish-orange to black. Most mildews are caused by an overgrowth of its close cousin, mould.
Our professional housecleaners will be able to impede the growth of mildew by removing the built up food sources that it lives on, such as soap, skin, hair and etc. However, as long as humidity is present, mildew will grow in the area.
To stop the growth of mildew, the area must be kept dry or in many cases, it must be chemically treated. Chlorine bleach is a good sanitizer to use on an infected area.
To reduce the pungent odour of the bleach, dilute it up to 50% with water. The most practical application method would be to lightly spray the mildew affected area. It is not necessary to apply bleach to uninfected areas. Leave the bleach in contact with the surface area for at least an hour. Rinse any area that you will touch in later use. Repeat the application on a bi-weekly basis or when mildew reappears.
While chlorine bleach is not a Green chemical, it must be used in some severe cases when you or your family’s health is at risk. Because this product is not Green, Star Express does not normally apply it, but you can find it easily in your local grocery store, or we can apply it for you.
We hope the information above explains why mildew is such an on-going challenge. Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have additional questions or for more information go to:
To make our house cleaning services more efficient, we ask that you consult our management team if extra time is required or you wish to change your quoted schedule, prior to a visit from our housekeeping teams.
If you have pets, we ask that you prevent them from entering the areas that we clean. For sanitary and safety reasons our teams are not permitted to clean flea infested homes or pick up animal excrement unless we are specifically employed to do so.
Star Express can't guarantee what time residential housekeepers will arrive because each home gets the attention it deserves and not a pre-determined amount of time. Still, most homes fall easily into regularly scheduled cleaning windows between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Friday. If for any reason you require a more precise time of arrival, our Management Team will work with you for a convenient solution.
Our cleaning professionals are well trained and back ground checked before stepping into the Star Express uniforms. Our residential housekeepers respect customers by never eating, drinking, or smoking during home cleanings. Each Star Express representative takes pride in their work, receiving regularly updated training and supervision to ensure quality of service.
The Detail-Clean with Rotation starts with two Initial Cleans. The Initial Cleans get your house detail clean by cleaning areas other companies often neglect. Because these two cleans take additional time we typically charge an additional fee. Once your Initial Cleans are complete we will begin our Detail-Clean with Rotation Schedule.
Pest Control FAQ
No, it's not necessary to empty cupboards as we apply a gel to areas where cockroaches nest or harbour. No liquid sprays are applied to these areas.
There is no need to wash utensils or surfaces once the treatment is carried out.
Regularly at intervals of no more than twelve months. Shorter periods may be recommended, according to environment conditions.
It's best to do the pest control after carpets have been cleaned or vacuumed.
We suggest that the pest control is done after all trades people have completed their jobs (painting, carpet laying, landscaping and final clean up). Preferably one or two days prior to moving in.
It's safe, but we recommend that you vacate your premises while the treatment is carried out and to ventilate the rooms thoroughly after completion for 4 hours before settling back in.
There is no concern to the safety of animals since the amount of active constituent that they may take in, either by contact while it's wet or by ingesting it orally, is very small. We recommend removing pets from the property or areas being treated whilst our services are being conducted and allowing time for the chemical to dry before returning. Approximately four hours.
No, it's not guaranteed, but a 6 months warranty is given.
To avoid triggering an asthma attack, we recommended that he/she is not present while the treatment is carried out, and preferably stays away from the premises overnight.
Access to room edges is necessary to spray along skirting. Therefore clothing articles, magazines, toys etc. should be moved off the ground. All food items should be cleared from bench and table tops.
Sprayed areas are of some concern while still wet. But once the carrier, which is water from the tap, has evaporated, the active constituent adheres to the surfaces and will not contaminate or harm you. Should you get in contact while it's still wet though, wash with soap and plenty of water as soon as possible.
Yes, it's possible that insects may wonder in from outside. Chances are that they will have crossed treated areas and will die shortly after.
No it will not. The gel / paste is only applied to areas where insects congregate or harbour, like cracks, crevices or hinges.
No, it will not affect you. The chemicals we apply are registered to be used in hospitals, schools and public places.
No, the emulsion we spray does not stain. It's a water based residual spray that doesn't contain strong solvents which might affect colouring or finishes.
