Preparing for Cleaning

How to Prepare for Your Cleaning Appointment

Pre-Vacuum Your Carpets

Carpets capture a lot of dust, dirt and hair. Much as you would vacuum or sweep a hard floor before mopping or cleaning, it is very important that your carpet is thoroughly pre vacuumed before we clean it. This can make a huge difference in cleaning results!

Remove Any Breakables

Please move all lamps, plants and breakables before we arrive and make sure that the areas to be cleaned are clear of items on the floor.

It's important to move lamps, plants and breakables before we arrive to clean your carpets. We don't want to have any accidents!
Move Furniture

We can move most furniture, including tables, chairs, and sofas. We cannot move beds which are not on rollers, entertainment units, electronics, china hutches or other oversize or fragile furniture. We will do our best to clean around or under anything that we cannot move.
