Prepare for an Initial Cleaning
We commonly hear from our customers before initial cleanings on how to prepare your home for cleaning. Although each customer is different when it comes to what should or should not be done within their home there are some best practices we can share. The following are a few suggestions on what can be done to prepare for the cleaner’s arrival.
Declutter Floor and Counters
Be sure to declutter as much as possible. The fewer items sitting out on surfaces, the more effective dusting can be. If table tops or counters have too many items to remove, dusting will be done around those items. Also, pick up as much as you can from your floors to ensure our cleaners are able to vacuum or mop all areas of your flooring.
Our cleaners will change the bed sheets if you want them to. If you want your sheets changed be sure to place the clean sheets on the bed the day of scheduled cleaning. This allows the cleaner to have no doubt whether the beds should made or the sheets need to be changed.
While are staff is trained to move items around to give your house a thorough cleaning the more items that are out on floors or counters will limit how much they can get to in one cleaning.
Special Cleaning Supplies
If you prefer the cleaners to use your cleaning products, be sure to leave them out in an area where the cleaners can find them when they first arrive to your home. While our cleaners use safe cleaning products we recognize that many of our customers have different sensitivities and allergies. Making our staff and our cleaners aware that you will provide cleaning supplies helps us avoid confusion and be better prepared for your home for cleaning.
