Housekeeping Specifics

Housekeeping Specifics

The following is a general outline of our specialized house cleaning and housekeeping process. Though we have developed this system based on what our clients tell us they love, we still offer a fully customizable service because we are committed to understanding your needs by developing a personal relationship with you.


Maintenance Cleaning Specifics:

Our maintenance cleaning system is guaranteed to keep your home clean just the way you like it. This includes all of the things you expect in a housekeeping service and more:

  • Living & Bedrooms – Dusting surfaces, furniture, and most other items (unless listed in detail clean); straightening pillows and blankets; vacuuming and/or mopping floors (including accessible areas under furniture and bed as needed).
  • Kitchen – Wiping counters, outside of appliances (including washer/dryer), inside of microwave and outside of trash can; scrubbing sink; spot checking cabinet doors; vacuuming and/or mopping floors; clean window behind sink.
  • Bathrooms – Wiping counters, toilet (including inside of bowl and base of toilet); scrubbing sink, tub and shower; cleaning mirrors; clean vanity lights as needed; spot checking cabinet doors; vacuuming and/or mopping floors.
  • Closets – Vacuuming cleared areas.
  • All Rooms – Wiping light switches and doors; vacuum upholstered furniture as needed; edge carpet as needed; vacuum baseboards as needed; dust/vacuum lamp shades as needed; using small extendable duster to dust low ceiling fans, low light fixtures, and “harder to reach” wall decor; gathering trash; changing linens on beds (upon request); cleaning glass on front and back door (inside and out).

Please Note:

  • An initial detailed cleaning is sometimes required and almost always recommended prior to beginning your maintenance cleaning service.
  • Our maintenance cleaning teams are equipped with a four foot step ladder. If this ladder does not enable us to reach certain items, we can arrange for another specialized team to clean these items (at an additional charge).

Detailed Cleaning Specifics:

Our detailed cleaning system is a great way to bring your home up to speed when it needs some extra attention. Also, many of our clients ask us to perform a detailed cleaning quarterly, biannually, or annually. In addition to a detailed cleaning of the items included in a regular maintenance cleaning, a detailed cleaning also includes:

  • Polishing light fixtures & light bulbs (when visible).
  • Cleaning ceiling fans and air vents.
  • Cleaning blinds & shutters.
  • Scrubbing baseboards.
  • Edging carpets.
  • Cleaning other high, hard to reach areas such as picture frames, above doors, above cabinets, high cabinet doors, high window sills, & high ledges.

Please note:

  • Our detailed cleaning teams are equipped with a six foot step ladder. If this ladder does not enable us to reach certain items, we can arrange for another specialized team to take care of these items (at an additional charge).
  • Keep in mind that any detailed cleaning items can be cleaned individually along with our maintenance cleaning service at an itemized charge.
