We are an eco-friendly, women-owned cleaning company – started by local Austinite, Amanda May, in 2007. We’re a residential cleaning company that cleans & stages. We bring the attention to detail and eye for in-home hospitality. 

We are on the cutting edge of safe and effective products. All of our disinfectants are on the EPA List N, meaning they kill novel coronavirus and flu.

Our employees work hard for the Fig, and the Fig works hard for them. They receive real living wages, usable health insurance, dental/vision, 401k & paid holidays.

We are small on purpose. You will have direct access to The Purple Fig founder and owner as well as our incredible office staff. We have swift response times and resolution to any and all questions/concerns. We don’t lock our clients into contracts— we earn your continued business with each and every clean. When we partner with a client, our success is linked.

Communication is our thing. Through taking the time to give and receive feedback, we are better able to achieve continued operational success.

We make all of our cleaning products in house! We use a natural eco friendly plant based all purpose concentrate, vinegar solutions, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, citric acid, essential oils and good old fashioned elbow grease 😉

The essential oil scents we use are lemon, eucalyptus and peppermint. We are happy to substitute with unscented products, or a combo of any of the following: lemon, eucalyptus, lavender or peppermint.

We provide all cleaning supplies except toilet brushes. 

You can check out a list of what all our packages include, we also offer a range of add ons including:

  • Fridge clean
  • Oven clean
  • Dishwasher clean
  • Washing machine clean
  • Detailed couch vacuum
  • Detailed kitchen cabinet fronts

It’s easy! Simply call, text or email and we’ll make the switch!

Cancellation and Reschedule Policy: If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please let us know by phone, text, or email as soon as possible. Our hours of operation are Monday- Friday from 8:00- 4:00 pm (We are closed for the Holiday Closures listed above). Any cancellation requests received outside of business hours will be treated as received the next business day at 8:00 am. 

  • Cancel/reschedule 48 hours before your appt: No charge 
  • Cancel/reschedule 25-47 hours before your appt: A fee of $35.00 
  • Cancel/reschedule 24 hours before your clean: Up to 50% of your service price
  • Same-day cancellation/reschedule/lockout: Up to 100% of your service price

If you canceled your clean, your next service will be at the next tier frequency price. For example, if you have an every 2-week visit, and you skip this clean, and it will now be 4 weeks between visits, that cleaning will be at the every 4-week rate. This will allow us to provide you with a complete and thorough cleaning on that visit. This does not apply to visits that are rescheduled within 5 business days of the original visit.

In short, basic tidying and de-cluttering of surfaces will allow us to clean more effectively and efficiently!

The short answer: yes. However, if you are switching from another cleaning company and have had a visit within the last four weeks, we are happy to hop right into recurring services!

No. You can choose to provide access instructions for our entry/exit by keypad code, hidden key, remote access etc. If you decide to keep a key on file with us - we store all keys in a secure lockbox at our office that requires team members' personal profiles to scan and take/release custody of the keys so we know where they are at all times.

It depends on the home and service being provided, but we generally schedule visits to be about an hour and a half and never more than 3 hours.

We are happy to provide an exact answer for you, just contact us!

We do not guarantee the same team for each visit, but our team is small and you'd see the same faces more often than not!

Every home is unique and there is a lot of variation in the upkeep of our clients’ homes. You can call (512) 351-1405 to receive an estimate. Or feel free to head to our website to get an instant quote.

If you’d like to tip your cleaners, you may leave a cash tip in an obvious place, you’ll also have the option to do so once you receive our scorecard and invoice after our visit. You are also welcome to call, text or email the office and they can handle that for you!

We accept all major credit cards, we do not accept cash or checks.
