The following are done on every housecleaning visit.
It is presumed that the home will be in order and somewhat picked up to facilitate cleaning the areas describe above.
A comprehensive surface cleaning that will keep your home clean and tidy on a regular basis.
Includes the Standard Cleaning list items (shown above) cleaned by hand with a detailed emphasis and focus on build up, plus the following:
* We do not climb higher than a 2-step ladder. Higher items will only be dusted w/ an extension duster we cannot move furniture, but we will try to reach any visible places either by hand or with an extension duster. Most homes have at least one chandelier or vaulted ceiling fan that we cannot reach by hand.
* We cannot guarantee the results of mini-blind cleaning. Excessive build up may require ultra-sonic mini-blind cleaning (available upon request). Please allow for some dust resettlement after we leave, we try to limit the dust in the air but cannot prevent this entirely.
Hire a cleaning technician to wash, dry, fold or hang up your clothes and tidy up in between the laundry.
$45 an hour. 3 or 4 hours minimum.
We will use the quick wash and dry cycles on front loaders. NO BLEACH. You can add bleach to a load before we come so we aren’t responsible for any damage. Only cleaning soaps that never damage. We will not leave the dryer on when we leave your home for safety reasons.
Light cleaning includes: Emptying full trash containers, wiping off countertops, sweeping areas with dog hair, dirt, etc. picking up toys, straightening magazines and paper, fluffing couch pillows and making beds.

When starting a new residential cleaning account we are often asked why we charge more for the "first time" cleaning. A first time cleaning of a new residential cleaning account is more like a "spring-cleaning" and needs extra staff time to remove extra soil and build-up. Our staff may spend anywhere from 4 to 8 times longer to clean a first-time residential account than one of our existing client's homes.
A customer who has never had their home professionally-cleaned is likely to have soil build-up throughout the house. We often gain new clients who are dissatisfied with their cleaning service and decide to hire our company. We take the time to remove extra soil and build-up around your home so that we are starting out with a “fresh palette.” Here are some of the challenges we run into:
We put extra effort will into removing hard water stains from fixtures, tubs and sinks. We also frequently find build-up around the bottom of toilets, faucets, and other fixtures that must be removed. Shower doors may have lime, rust, and hard water spots. We take the entire room back to a clean starting point so in the future, regular cleaning will keep everything shiny and deposit free.
We clean the small cracks and crevices in the kitchen that some residential cleaning services overlook. The tops of cabinets, cupboards and refrigerators are places that often go undusted or uncleaned for long periods of time. We find grease and fingerprints on most surfaces, especially stove tops, refrigerator doors, and small appliances. A good overall cleaning is essential to remove the hidden dirt, grease and even unseen spilled food that need to be thoroughly cleaned up.
Home owners are often too busy to do a thorough cleaning job. As people get busy, they sweep and vacuum what's visible, but they tend to ignore vacuuming and sweeping behind or under furniture. Dusting is often a task that homeowners leave for "when there is time." We clean window sills, bookshelves, baseboards, ceiling fans, and other furniture that may have a long-term build-up of thick dust.
We clean these spaces that have build-up around baseboards and edges. It is important to keep these areas clean as dust and dirt is tracked in from hallways and entryways.
Removing the build-up of soil and grime is essential before we can get a home to looking its best.
Once the home has had a careful cleaning it will be faster and easier for our team to go in and clean on the schedule agreed upon. Getting back to a basic starting point is important so that we have a clean slate to work with. Beginning at the starting point we can make sure that every time we clean, your home will shine and you will be a satisfied customer!
While people understand the importance of cleaning with regard to appearance, they are often unaware of how a clean home affects their health. A clean bathroom and kitchen are two areas that we commonly think of as needing to be clean for health reasons. However, there are other issues within the home that can cause physical harm to your body. Also, the very chemicals we use to clean can have an adverse affect on you.
Poor indoor air quality has been proven to be a cause of health problems. Allergies to dust and mold are common, and can lead to potentially serious conditions. Most traditional cleaning chemicals are toxic, and can cause allergic reactions as well. These can range from minor annoyances to potentially life-threatening. Also, some chemicals are actually poisonous or capable of causing chemical burns. These chemicals can also enter the environment, affecting our water supply.
Here at Easy Life House Cleaning, we use environmentally friendly products and equipment, with the goal of providing you with a safe and healthy environment. Our chemicals are non-toxic, and many are derived from natural ingredients.
