Cleaning Tasks

Basics and Extras

We consider "basic" cleaning tasks to be things that our customers want completed every visit, unless a prior agreement has been made due to time constraints. We can rotate through some lower-need basics over time to maximize our time while in your home. The expectations for the basics in your home will be set during the free in-home consultation, which happens before any cleaning appointments are scheduled.

 

Our goal is to always exceed your expectations. Overall, your home will become cleaner with each visit. If we ever disappoint your expectations, please let us know through constructive feedback so we can coach our team and make it right.

 

“Extras” are items that we will work to complete during each visit, but only if we are done with all of the basics and have extra time. We also rotate through the extra tasks to give your home a year-round clean feeling. Extras are only completed if time permits, but extra time can always be scheduled if you need more than your usual visit allows. Ask us for more information during your in-home consultation.
