what to expect

This is our checklist for standard home cleaning service. It is the same checklist our cleaning teams use. When we enter a home with very little instruction, these are the tasks we focus on and can usually complete in the average home. This is not meant to be exhaustive. Please feel free to provide instructions if your expectations differ from what you find below.

PLEASE NOTE: For clients who are new and whose homes have not been cleaned recently (or simply are more *lived in*), we may not be able to achieve everything listed below in the time we allot for standard home cleaning service. If we find upon arrival that this may be the case, we will do everything we can to communicate with you as soon as possible to come to an agreed upon expectation.
