All rooms are started with a thorough dusting of doorframes, windowledges, and any artwork. And yes, I dust UNDER objects. That favourite photograph on your dresser will not be sitting in its own little island of dust! All rooms are finished with the floor being vacuumed and either disinfected as needed (bathrooms and powder rooms) or treated with a product suited to the floor - be it hardwood, laminate, tile, ceramic or marble.
Bathrooms: All appliances, sinks, fittings and cabinet doors are thoroughly cleaned. Mirrors are cleaned to a shine. The toilet is disinfected and any mildew is treated as need be. Shower stall doors and bathtubs are scrubbed. Garbage collected upon request. The floor is vacuumed then cleaned and disinfected with a vaporizer.

Home gyms/rec rooms: All gym equipment will be wiped down and cleaned as much as possible. Toys will be picked up and stashed safely. Tables and furniture are dusted. Floor vacuumed and treated.

**PLEASE NOTE There is a surcharge to clean up pet vomit, urine and/or fecal matter, as it must be cleaned up, bagged separately, and the area then cleaned and disinfected. This all takes extra time and supplies, so the cost will be passed on to the client in the form of an additional $20 fee.
Windows: Windows that are easily accessible from the inside of the house, sliding French doors, solariums etc. Generally it is more practical to dedicate a separate session to windows.
