House Cleaning Services: D.I.Y Checklist for House Cleaners


Every home is different and every cleaner has a different cleaning style. Cleanings can be 100% customized to your liking according to your needs, schedule and budget. Including a checklist for house cleaners is a great way to ensure that the communication and expectations are clearly defined.

 

To help we have gathered some of the most frequently requested tasks that clients look for in 3 different types of residential home cleaning. This is NOT meant to be a prepacked cleaning to limit your cleaning needs. You can use these as a reminder to jog your mind about what you’re looking for in your own customized cleaning.

 

We can notate all your requests and record them on the work order for the cleaner to review each visit, especially if you wont be home for the cleaning. We’re always happy to adjust or update the notes upon request should your needs change in the future. You can also communicate directly with the cleaners with any special requests or simply leave a DIY checklist for them.
