House  Cleaning  Services: DIY  Checklist   for House Cleaners 

Each home has different needs. Each house cleaner may have a different style. We've included a list of most frequently requested tasks that clients look for in 3 different types  of residential cleaning. This is not meant to be a prepackaged cleaning to limit your needs. You can use this to better assist in customizing you cleaning. This is a great way to ensure the communication and expectations are clearly defined for the house cleaners. 

We'll notate all your request and record them on the work order notes for the cleaner to review each visit, especially if you won't be home for the cleaning. We're always happy to adjust and update those notes upon request should your needs change for future services or change for a particular cleaning date. You can also communicate directly with the cleaners with any request.
