*We do not climb higher than a 2-step ladder. Higher items will be dusted w/an extension duster.


The Fine Print: 
• We cannot move furniture, but we will try to reach any visible places either by hand or with an extension duster. Cleaners are not allowed to step higher than a 2 step stepstool.                     
• Some homes have at least one chandelier or vaulted ceiling fan that we cannot reach by hand. We do offer chandelier cleaning as part of our window cleaning services.                    
• We cannot guarantee the results of mini-blind cleaning. Excessive build up may require an additional charge.                    
• Please allow for some dust resettlement after we leave, we try to limit the dust in the air but cannot prevent this entirely.                    
• Cleaning are by appointment only. If we are unable to gain access to the home or are turned away at the time of cleaning, there is a $50 fee.                    
• We do not provide laundry services.
