How do I prepare my house for cleaningAre you up to the task of making your home squeaky clean and keeping it that way? Doesn’t seem plausible? Then you might be time for you to consider the benefits of professional house cleaning services in Palmer. There is a host of reasons why cleaning should be delegated to experts, but what is it that professional house cleaners actually do?

In other words, are there chores which, try as you might, you won’t be in a position to avoid? The short answer is no, as long as you choose the right cleaning package, one that best suits your home and the needs of your household. However, there are a few handy details to be mindful of if you really want to enhance the quality of your domestic life. Read on to learn more!

How do I prepare my house for cleaning?

There’s really very little you are supposed to do in preparation for the arrival of cleaning experts. The main thing to have in mind is that there’s no reason to do any pre-cleaning, so don’t worry about the mess, no matter how terrible it may seem! Professionals have it all planned out and they’re sure to stay on top of things from the get-go.

However, it’s a good idea to remove any clutter, such as toys, clothes, books and magazines, dishes, before your cleaners arrive. This will make the thorough and efficient cleaning of all the surfaces easier. Also, if you want the bed linen and towels changed, be sure to indicate where the clean ones are. Last but not least, make sure your pets are in a safe location so the cleaners could go about their work without being distracted by your fluffy little ones.

You can make special requests, of course, and design your own cleaning checklist, depending on the needs, type and size of your household. You can also ask your cleaners to pay special attention to certain areas of your home and clean them more thoroughly or more frequently. Other than that, you’re all set! Genuine cleaning professionals always provide premium quality, no questions asked.

Do I need to prepare any cleaning products and equipment?

No need to provide the cleaning tools and supplies, since your cleaners will bring their own. Still, you can talk to the cleaners before the first cleaning session and get all the details. For instance, you can ask the cleaners about the type of cleaning products they plan on using. You can also take the opportunity to let them know if green products are your preferred choice.

Not only do green cleaning products make your home a healthier environment, free of any harsh, aggressive chemicals that put your health at risk, but also contribute to the protection of our community. It’s high time we all joined forces with the Alaskan Department of Environmental Protection and keep Alaska’s breathtaking natural environment for generations to come.

House cleaners are professionals who will leave no stone unturned in an effort to make your home spick-and-span. All in all, you can expect the wow effect!

In the more specific sense, the house cleaner will perform a range of services, depending on your chosen cleaning package. Bear in mind that there is usually an extra charge for some services which require more work, such as cleaning after pets.

A typical premium house cleaning checklist looks like this:

  • Vacuuming carpets and floors
  • Sweeping and mopping floors
  • Emptying trash
  • High and low dusting
  • Cleaning door handles and light fixtures
  • Dusting windows, window sills and ledges
  • Changing linen (often as an additional service)

  • Wiping countertops and outside of the kitchen cabinets
  • Doing the dishes (often as an additional service)
  • Cleaning and disinfecting the toilet
  • Cleaning the sink, bath tubs and/or showers

Special services include deep cleaning, move in/move out cleaning, post-construction cleaning, cleaning of vacation and Airbnb rentals, window cleaning etc. All of these cleaning services cover more specific areas and go into more detail. Of course, if you prefer, you can always ask for a more personalized, custom-made house cleaning checklist. Both you and your home deserve the best!

Does my house cleaner need insurance?

Usually, your house cleaner will be insured, but make sure to ask the company referring the cleaner to you before the scheduled cleaning date if that is the case. Most cleaning referral companies will carry insurance as well as offer to resolve any complaints as soon as possible.

Since the best cleaning services in Alaska come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, you can rest assured that you’ll have nothing to worry about. All of this should be enough to give you a peace of mind before you go through with your first cleaning session.
