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 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.
