OUR FIRST CLEANING

Before we can even begin to perform routine weekly or bi-weekly maintenance cleaning in a home, there are usually a variety of “first-time" tasks which require extra attention on our first visit. Our first cleaning visit is more like a spring cleaning, or what we call a Deep Cleaning. In fact, it's not uncommon for our teams to spend from four to eight hours longer on a first-time cleaning than it takes us on regular, repeat maintenance visits. While the situation in every home is unique and different, the following are some examples of what we mean.

 

Bathrooms

We can spend as much time cleaning one bathroom on our first visit as it takes to clean the entire home on subsequent visits. For example, if we don't spend the time and effort up front needed to deep-clean shower doors, shower-door tracks, shower walls, bathroom walls, bathroom surfaces, plumbing fixtures, and porcelain artifices, these objects will never look clean no matter how often we come. If build-up mineral rings or hard-water stains are present in the commode, we do our best to bring these surfaces back to clean.

 

The Kitchen

Kitchen cabinets, countertops and appliances often require extra attention on our first visit. Grease, fingerprints, and other dirt seem to make its way through everyone's home and gravitates toward the kitchen. It doesn't take long for kitchen dust to become saturated with grease and harden. This is certainly a lot more difficult to clean than a week's accumulation of ordinary surface dust. Some of our clients ask us to clean the oven and inside the refrigerator on our first visit, too.

 

All Rooms

The amount of time and effort required to bring all rooms back to order depends on many factors. Most of our clients hire us because they simply don't have time to clean with more than a "lick-and-a-promise." They know we will clean their home the way they would like. Bookshelves, baseboards, windowsills, low hanging light fixtures, blinds, shutters, or other furnishings and fixtures are often neglected for long periods of time and may require extra initial care.

 

A Necessary Procedure

There's a big difference between ''old dirt " and "new dirt". If we do not get rid of the old dirt, no matter how hard we try, simply removing the new dirt isn't going to make things look sparkling fresh and clean. This is why our first cleaning is a necessary procedure for our first cleaning session.
