Services Provided and the Cleaning Process
We usually just have one person cleaning at a time. We are equipped with all our own supplies.
However at the homeowners request, we will use specific products they supply. Through the
years we have learned what cleaning products are effective and the most efficient cleaning
We like to keep our clients on a consistent schedule with general cleans. We are willing to
schedule in extra tasks and cleanings for an additional fee. Additional tasks must be scheduled
ahead of time. Extra tasks would include ovens, inside of refrigerators, deep cleaning of blinds
etc. We change bed linens upon request as part of the maintenance but we do not do laundry or
dishes. We do not clean inside china cabinets or wet bars. Please ask about tasks you may be
curious if we perform.
We clean the shower and the bathtub. Any mildew gets treated and we strive to get the grout as
clean as possible and fight off hard water deposits and soap scum. We use glass cleaner on all
mirrors and fixtures. All items are removed from counter tops which are then wiped down and
returned to their original position. The sink is cleaned out, the fronts of the cabinets are
polished, base boards wiped down, toilet cleaned and the floor is sanitized.
The fronts of cabinets, outsides of appliances and inside of microwave are wiped clean. You can
request in advance to have the inside of the oven or refrigerator cleaned for an extra charge.
We move items on the counter tops so they can be wiped down accordingly and then they are
put back in their proper place. The sink is cleaned out. The stove top is surface cleaned and if it
can be taken apart we clean the drip pans. Floors are swept or vacuumed and then steam
cleaned if tile or linoleum. If there are wood floors we use a terry cloth mop and wood floor
-Dusting and Vacuuming
This would include general areas and bedrooms. We will remove and replace a reasonable
amount of items in order to dust surfaces. Any mirrors we come across are cleaned with glass
cleaner. We will check for cobwebs,dust ceiling fans, dust picture frames, dust baseboards,
Swiffer blinds (deep cleaning of blinds is an extra fee and needs to be scheduled), clean window
sills and generally dust all furniture. Carpets are vacuumed and wood or tile floors are
vacuumed and mopped appropriately.
We will do inside windows as part of a move out clean or as an added service. For outside
windows or two story homes with tall windows, it might be better to hire a window cleaning service
with all the ladders and equipment needed for upper stories. We will vacuum and wipe out
window tracks, wash and squeegee the inside windows, and wipe down the frames. We'll get
inside and out of sliding doors. We'll try our best not to leave behind streaks or drips. We'll also
detail clean any blinds or shutters upon request.
Duties include emptying all wastebaskets and taking out the trash. Cleaning the bathroom would
entail: wiping down all surfaces, cleaning out sinks and toilets and mopping floors. If requested
and the supplies are provided for us, we'll resupply toilet paper and paper towels and refill soap
dispensers. Cleaning the kitchen or break area includes: wiping off counter tops, fronts of
cabinets, fronts of appliances, cleaning out the sink, wiping down any tables and chairs then
mopping the floor. In each office we would check for cobwebs, swiffer blinds, dust any pictures or
documents on walls, dust the desks and any objects on it, wipe down the computer screen,dust
any other furniture and vacuum. We'll also wipe down entry glass doors.
We do not provide carpet cleaning but I can recommend Yowell's Carpet Cleaning. He also
does upholstery cleaning, tile and grout cleaning and Window washing. I've seen his work on
move out cleans and it's amazing! Contact Carl at 209-770-3003
Move Out Cleans
The house must be completely empty of all belongings before we come to clean. All debris must
be removed as well. We do many of the same tasks as outlined in the basic housecleaning
service but at a much deeper level as well as the following: wipe down all doors, baseboards,
light switch/ electrical outlet plates; inside and out of all cabinets and closets; light fixtures wiped
down; and vacuum the carpets (we don't steam clean - refer to above carpet cleaning
paragraph). The window blinds or shutters are wiped down; inside and out of all kitchen
appliances including the oven and refrigerator; and sweeping out the garage. If you can think of
any more tasks, please ask us if we can include them and we will accommodate you if possible.
We offer inside window cleaning as part of the move out clean, inside and out of sliding or french
doors. We generally charge by the hour for move out cleans as these are nearly impossible to
bid on and people often want different things done. There are also different degrees of build up.
We can give you a ballpark estimate over the phone. And please be aware of when the new
owners/ renters are moving in so they're not trying to move in when we're cleaning. We DO NOT
guarantee you will get your deposit back because it's not our decision to make.
Please ask us what products we use when discussing your house cleaning needs with us.
We use as many natural/ biodegradable products as we can because we'd like to cut down on
the amount of chemicals we use in your house. We've found we can't replace things like toilet
cleaner and mildew remover with natural products. The most important thing is they need to be
effective. If you have products you would prefer that we use please let us know and we will try to
We always bring a clean bag of cotton terry cloth towels and microfiber cloths to use only in your
We use Shark upright bagless vacuum cleaners for carpets with attachments for floors and
stairs. Then we have a Bissel pro steamer mop for hard floors like tile or linoleum. For wood
floors, we have a mop with a microfiber cover and wood floor spray.
