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
    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 include changing one set of bed linens upon request as part of the clean. We do not do laundry, dishes
    or clean the inside of 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.  
    The ACS crew use Hoover uprights for carpets and Hoover backpack vacs for floors and stairs.

    trash. Cleaning the bathroom would entail: wiping down

    counter tops, fronts of cabinets, fronts of appliances, cleaning
    out the sink, wiping down any tables and chairs then mopping

    dust blinds, dust any pictures or documents on walls, dust the

    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.
