Cleaner’s Procedures

  1. Please note these procedures are a Guide providing you have sufficient time, should you not have sufficient time please advise the Office accordingly.

  2. As a Guide we allow:
    1. 2.5 hour for 2 bedroom house
    2. 3 hours for a 3 bedroom house
    3. 4 hours for a 4 bedroom house (with 2 bathrooms)
    4. 5 hours for a 5 bedroom house (with 3 bathrooms)

  3. Clean from the top down

    When you’re cleaning the entire house, start on the top floor and work your way down to avoid tracking through rooms you have already cleaned.

    Do not ever spray any product directly onto TV, computer monitors and framed art; wipe only with a soft dry cloth.

    Lift all ornaments up and dust them and their shelf.

    Do not vacuum around objects. Move objects so to that you vacuum underneath them. Vacuum every bit of carpet that you can possibly get to, including stairs. Use the hose and attachments to vacuum where carpet meets wall and immovable furniture.

    Do not move heavy furniture.

  4. Think dry, then wet

    When you’re cleaning a room, start with the cleaning jobs that require dry methods (dusting, sweeping, and vacuuming, for instance).

    Then move on to wet methods (using an all-purpose cleaner and glass cleaner, mopping, and the like).

    This way, there will be less dirt floating around in the room to cling to wet surfaces
