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.

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.
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

needs to be scheduled), clean window sills and generally dust all furniture. Carpets are vacuumed and wood or tile floors are vacuumed and mopped
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.
ACS recommends Just Windows and their contact number is: 408-377-2407
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, swiffer
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.
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.
