Our Apartment Cleaning Process

Dusting & Surface Cleaning

Starting from the top and working our way down, we’ll dust all surfaces — from ceiling corners and light fixtures to tabletops and counters. This ensures airborne dust particles are eventually vacuumed or mopped up.

Floor Care

Based on your flooring type, we’ll vacuum, sweep, and mop to ensure all floors are spotless. Special attention is given to corners and edges.

Kitchen & Bathroom Deep Clean

These areas often need the most attention:

  • Kitchen: Cleaning appliances inside and out, scrubbing sinks, wiping down counters, and cabinets.
  • Bathroom: Disinfecting and scrubbing toilets, showers, tubs, and sinks, polishing mirrors and fixtures.

Final Touches

This includes emptying trash bins, fluffing cushions, straightening decor, and any other small touches to ensure your apartment feels welcoming.

Windows & Balcony (if applicable)

We ensure windows are streak-free, and sills are dusted. If you have a balcony, we’ll sweep it and clean any glass barriers.

Review & Feedback

Once we’re done, we invite you to review our work. We value your feedback and are always ready to make adjustments if needed. Your satisfaction is our ultimate goal.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, we come fully equipped with all necessary cleaning supplies and equipment. If you have specific tools or products you’d like us to use, please inform us beforehand.
