Whether you avail our services or clean the house yourself, it is important that you follow a pre-cleaning ritual. Having a guide makes things easier and organized. Basically, you just need to clear out the space or surface that needs to be cleaned. So pick up any clutter that lie on the floor, table or on any other surface. You just need to put these in a box or basket, or pile them in one place, and we will do the rest.
A pre-cleaning guide helps speed up the whole cleaning process. This also ensures that your belongings are kept safe and your trash will be disposed of properly and more efficiently. Each part of the home requires different guide. But the basic concept is just to make the house as prepared as possible before our professional cleaners arrive.
In the bathroom:
Take items off the vanity, toilet tank and tub, drop them into a basket and throw it under the sink before the cleaners come. After the bathroom is cleaned quickly and efficiently you can replace your items onto freshly sanitized surfaces. The soap dish and toothbrush holder can be left out, we will remove the soap scum from them both. Please also turn off all lights in all bathrooms well before the cleaners arrive, as the bulbs cannot be cleaned while hot - they will explode on contact.
In the kitchen:
Clear any clutter by placing papers, bills, pens, note paper, keys, sunglasses, anything considered to be cluttering your surface areas into a basket or even on a dinner plate - simply walk around your kitchen and drop all loose items onto the plate and place it on your kitchen table. We will then be able to use your counter space to quickly take apart your stove burners, scrub them properly in the sink and replace them without having to clear the space to perform their tasks.
P.S. Do the same for dining room/kitchen tables, coffee tables or desks that you want sparkling clean!
In the bedrooms:
Simply try to show as much floor as you can... pick up any clothes, pillows, blankets, comforters, toys, books, etc and toss them all on the bed. We will then quickly look for a dirty clothing hamper, take all clothing off the bed and put it in the hamper for you. With no clutter on the floor, we can move around your bedroom freely, ensuring the window sills and baseboards are vacuumed while gaining the largest amount of floor space to clean.
If you have any questions, just call us at 314.229.1736 and we will respond to your needs as efficiently and quickly as possible.
