What is included in a First Time Residential Cleaning?

Below you will find the check list that our Cleaning Teams use to complete our First Time Residential Cleanings.  If you are a customer and have a request of us that cannot be found on this list please let one of our Team Members know or email us at office@magnoliacleaningservice.com and we will accommodate any additional requests you have of us.

Note that we prefer to have every one of our new customers select to have a Deep Cleaning First Time cleaning with our cleaning teams as this sets the stage for a great ongoing cleaning and allows us to bring the home to our ongoing maintenance standard.
