We recommend all clients looking to start a recurring service begin with an initial Deep Clean. These are a really big deal – a super intensive and thorough scrubbing of your home!
The goal is to eliminate all the dirt, dust, and petrified grime that has set up shop in the corners, nooks and crannies of your home while you weren’t looking. Starting off with a Deep Clean lets us bring things to a good maintenance level that’s easier for us – and you – to maintain.
On average, these cleanings take about 2-3x longer than a standard Classic Clean. These are scheduled as an all-day job. It’s a very detailed process that just takes time to do it right! Depending on the size of your home, we may send up to 3 cleaning techs.
As we mentioned before, all of our products are non-toxic, chemical and odor free, and environmentally safe for your family, your pets, and your house!
Our cleaning techs can only carry so much equipment on them, so if you have a sturdy step ladder for dusting your ceiling lights and other high up areas, we ask you please leave it out for us! We do not clean inside any cabinets or drawers unless they are empty in which case it is technically a “move in/out clean.”
You can request add-on services to your Deep Clean (these are NOT automatically included):
- Inside Oven cleaning – please run your self-cleaner if you have one before cleaning day!
- Inside Fridge cleaning
- Dusting large-slat blinds or shutters (no mini-blinds; they break way too easily!)
- Emptying trash/recycling/compost – let us know where your liners are; we don’t carry them!
- Wiping out window/sliding door tracks
- Sweeping front/back porch or outside stairs – weather permitting, and you’ll have to provide the broom 🙂
- Just ask us if you have any other special requests, most likely we can do them!
We take our quality and reputation very seriously, and guarantee the highest standard of cleaning for your home. There will be a lead or highly experienced cleaning tech on your Deep Clean crew who will make sure those standards are met. We may even have a manager drop by for an on-site quality assurance check!
