We usually just have one person cleaning at a time. We will occasionally send out teams of two for
larger or more time consuming jobs such as initial cleans or move outs. 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 included, ovens, inside of refrigerators, deep cleaning of blinds and emptying waste
baskets and taking out the trash...etc. We include changing one set of bed linens upon request as part

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 accommodate you.

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; vacuum the carpets
(we don't steam clean- refer to above carpet cleaning paragraph). The following tasks are optional- all
window blinds deep cleaned; 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. 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. 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.
