How do I make the most of my purchased time? Everyone has different needs. We can customize your cleaning to focus on what you need done most. We do not charge extra fees for any household chore (within reason). For recurring cleaning service, deeper-cleaning of different areas/items will be rotated upon each visit. If you have a particular area, or items that are of priority to you on any visit, please just let us know, and we will prioritize it. Some customers prefer to leave a list for us to follow. Some ways to make the most of your cleanings: -If we are loading the dishwasher, please have it emptied before our arrival. Any clean dishes left in the dishwasher will be placed & left on clean counter-top prior to loading. -We don't mind picking up, but to get the most value out of your cleaning, store-away items (such as toys, papers, toiletries) prior to our arrival. -Take items that you plan to launder into the laundry room prior to your cleaning (linens, furniture coverings and accessories etc.). This seems obvious, but can also be easily overlooked. It simply helps to avoid the re-spreading of things such as pet hair around your home after it has been cleaned. What will maids clean? We will clean just about anything. We understand that it can be more complicated than just dusting and vacuuming! Special requests? No problem. From trouble spots to off-limit zones, we will create a cleaning plan to match your needs, and your home. What we can not do *Clean, handle, or dispose of Bio-Hazardous classified waste/materials *Clean or pickup pet waste *Hand-wash dishes. We will gladly load & run the dishwasher. Any clean dishes removed from washer prior to loading, will be placed & left on a clean counter-top. *We cannot wash, dry, or iron laundry. We will gladly fold laundry by request. *Lift or move heavy objects or large pieces of furniture *Run Personal Errands *Cook *Organize extreme clutter prior to cleaning.
