Floors

We pay special attention to floors, especially hardwood floors. We vacuum all rugs and carpets as well as vacuum all hardwood or hard surface floors– afterwards we thoroughly mop all hardwood and hard surface floors using our plant based floor solution with a microfiber mop-head to make them shiny.

What we don’t do:

-Laundry
-Dishes
-Move furniture(We have an insurance policy that prohibits moving or lifting furniture, however if you have it moved out prior to our arrival, we will gladly clean behind/under spaces)
-Use ladders(We have an insurance policy that prohibits standing on anything higher than our  2-step stool that we are permitted to use) We have tall dusters and extension dusters that can help reach higher places in rooms.
-De-cluttering of rooms(Our services are to clean the surfaces and floors in the house. We can help pick up minimally while cleaning but de-cluttering entire rooms falls outside of our wheelhouse)
-Bio hazard type cleaning(anything that is above and beyond sanitary protocol)
-Use harsh chemicals, bleach, and products that aren’t considered non-toxic.
