How to Prepare for Your Cleaning Service

If you’ve just booked your cleaning service with us, there are things you can do ahead of time to prepare for your cleaning service. To ensure that our cleaners are able to complete their job efficiently and effectively, here are some of top tips to help you prepare before we arrive at your home.  

Make a List of Cleaning Tasks

Make a list of cleaning tasks that you would like us to complete during your service. This will ensure that you receive the services that you require and that we do not miss any areas that you would like cleaned.  We will go through everything during your initial booking call, but if there is anything else you think of before your service, be sure to reach out to us.

Communicate Your Expectations

Be sure to communicate your expectations with us before we arrive at your home to help prepare for your cleaning service.  Reach out to let us know what areas of your home require the most attention and if there are any areas that you would like us to avoid. It is also important to let us  know if you have any special cleaning products that you would like us to use.

Declutter Your Home

It is important to remove any clutter from your home before we arrive for your service. This will allow our cleaners to focus on cleaning and organizing your home, rather than spending time moving items around. If you have children, make sure that their toys are put away and that their rooms are tidy.

Arrange For Pets

If you have any pets, make sure that they are secured in a room or in a kennel before we arrive at your home.  This will prevent them from getting in the way of our cleaners and help to ensure that they stay safe during the process.

Clear the Surfaces

Remove any items from surfaces that we will be working on, such as countertops, tables, and desks. This will allow our cleaners to thoroughly clean the surfaces and not have to move your personal items around.

Provide Access to Your Home

Make sure that our cleaners have access to your home. This may include leaving a key or providing a code to a lockbox. You may also want to provide any instructions on how to access your home, such as where to park.

Prepare Your Appliances

If you would like us to clean your appliances, such as your oven or refrigerator, make sure that they are emptied and ready for cleaning.  Also, make sure that you notify our office ahead of time to ensure that these services are added and our cleaners have enough time to clean them.

Turn Off Alarms

If you have a security system or alarms, make sure to turn them off or provide our office with the necessary codes to deactivate them.  This will ensure that everything goes smoothly when we enter and exit your home.

Preparing for your cleaning service is essential for a smooth and efficient cleaning experience.  By taking the time to review and follow these tips, you can ensure that our team is able to do the best job possible and that they’re able to leave your home clean and tidy.
