Move In Move Out

Are you buying or selling a home?  Is your rental in between tenants?
This cleaning will make everything "move in" ready.

The focus is on BUILD UP and HI/LO cleaning:

  • Maid services in Lansing, Ann Arbor, Pontiac, and HowellWipe all counters/appliances including inside of microwave
  • Scrub sinks
  • Open all cabinets, drawers, pantry to wipe clean
  • Thoroughly sweep and mop all bare floors (especially where appliances have been)
  • Vacuum all carpeted areas including all closets
  • Clean and disinfect all bathrooms (wipe out cabinets and drawers, special attention to build up)
  • Wash ceiling fans and light fixtures in-place, by hand, (tulip light fixtures clean in place, light fixtures w/glass panels or bulbs over kitchen tables, light bar in bathrooms cleaned in place. Those that cannot be reached on a 2 step ladder by hand will be dusted with an extension duster.
  • Hand wash all baseboards
  • Wash all wood stained cabinets with Murphy's oil soap in kitchen and bathrooms (as well as throughout home if moldings are wood stained)
  • Wash all painted cabinets with all purpose cleaner
  • Wash all doors and door frames (all purpose cleaner unless wood stained—use Murphy's)
  • Wash all light switches
  • Vacuum or dust air return vents
  • Vacuum all carpet crevices  (crevice along the edge where bugs, animal hair or carpet fibers build up)
  • Wash all moldings, trim, door frames and chair railing
  • Vacuum tops of curtains and drapes (dust and webs collect)
  • Vacuum dusty blinds  (unless a request for hand washing has been made)

We never climb higher than a 2 step ladder. Anything beyond that reach will be dusted with an extension duster for safety reasons.

Optional services:               

  • Fireplace: scoop out ashes
  • Refrigerator: Wipe out shelves and drawers
  • Oven: Clean with oven cleaner or wipe out if self-cleaned the night before

It is presumed that the home will be in order and somewhat picked up to facilitate heavy cleaning.

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 is 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 service fee.                    
• We do not provide laundry services.
