Tips to Save Money on Green Cleaning

Clean Affinity Classic Cleans

cleanaffinity Our Cleaning Process

So… you want a self-cleaning house. We are the people to provide that bit of magic for you. 😉

Our “Classic Cleans” are here to help maintain that fantastic WOW of the “Elite Clean“.

There are some things that we do during the Elite Clean that we don’t maintain to the same standard with our Classic Cleans.

Things like:

  • Vacuuming under couch cushions

 

  • Cleaning the pot rack, ceiling fan, and light fixtures by hand
  • Cleaning the tippy top shelf or anything stored on top of cabinets
  • Moving furniture away from the wall to clean the baseboards

These things must be requested.

Other little things that need to be requested include:

  • Changing sheets on the bed
  • What to do with bath mats if you don’t want us to put them down
  • Garbage and recycling

Here’s a list to give you an idea of what you can expect from a Classic Cleaning:

Cleaning Process

  • Cobwebs removed with high duster – not every time, but at least once a month or when necessary.
  • Dusting with damp microfiber cloth – goal is to remove dust, not just move it. (A dry microfiber on electronics, of course.)
  • Baseboards
  • Tidy beds – or change the sheets if you’d prefer
  • Vacuum floors (note: we will open all doors just to be sure we aren’t missing anything and to vacuum closet floors a bit.)
  • Vacuum outside of upholstered furniture that could use it
  • Damp mop hard floors

KITCHEN

  • Spot clean outside of cabinets and drawers (note: we will open cabinets and drawers ONLY in your kitchen)
  • Get those pesky cobwebs that grow on the kickboard
  • Spot clean backsplash with extra attention to high use areas
  • Move most, if not all, items on counter to clean into the corners and wipe most, if not all, of those items down
  • Wipe down small countertop appliances
  • Empty toaster crumb tray
  • Clean inside and out of microwave
  • Wipe down outside of fridge (inside is by request) and polish stainless with oil if necessary
  • Wipe inside and out of stove hood
  • Field strip/disassemble stove top to clean it thoroughly in the sink
  • Wipe outside and gasket of dishwasher
  • Spot clean window over sink
  • Hand wash a few dishes if necessary – as many as will fit safely on a standard dish towel
  • Scrub sink with baking soda including down and around drain

BATHROOMS

  • Shake out bathmats
  • Scrub tub/shower with ample amounts of elbow grease and professional know-how
  • Toilet cleaned thoroughly including wiping surrounding floor and walls
  • Pumice water ring in toilet if necessary
  • Clean mirror with hot water and a learned finesse
  • Sink and counter cleaned – moving items to clean underneath them
  • A careful consideration of your toothbrush… our cleaner is nontoxic, but it doesn’t taste fantastic so we’re careful about over-spray.
  • Wipe floor by hand

We’ll always be dusting the baseboards and vacuuming under the bed. We’ll vacuum the outside of your couch. We’ll use our high duster to knock the cobwebs and accumulated dust from the ceiling fan and light fixtures. That ledge of the dishwasher that always gets so gross will be wiped. The crumb tray in the toaster will be cleaned out.

We’ll still be cleaning with our same method, zeal, and attention to detail.

These things must be requested if you want them done for a regular cleaning. The more notice we can get, the better, too!

Other little things that need to be requested (for Elite and Classic cleans) include:

  • Changing sheets on the bed
  • Garbage and recycling
  • What to do with bath mats if you don’t want us to put dirty mats down on a clean floor…
