Housecleaning
    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 deep 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 methods.
    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 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.

  • The Bathroom
    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 Kitchen
    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 and then steam cleaned if tile or linoleum. If there are wood floors
    use a terry cloth mop and wood floor cleaner spray.

  • 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 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.

    Products Used
    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.
    We always bring a clean bag of cotton terry cloth towels and microfiber cloths to use only in your
    home.  
    Davlyn and her crew use Hoover uprights for carpets and Hoover backpack vacs for floors and stairs.

     Windows
    Davlyn is no longer offering window cleaning in the Bay Area but she can recommend someone.

    Office Maintenance
    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.
    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, feather
    dust blinds, dust any pictures or documents on walls, dust the
    desk and any objects on it, wipe down the computer screen,
    dust any other furniture and vacuum.

    Carpet Cleaning

    We do not provide this service ourselves, but we do recommend Elio with Fibercare whom we have
    known for years and does amazing work on move out cleans. He can be reached at 408-377-2407.

    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.
