Your guide to spring cleaning

We've helped many customers hire a deep cleaning pro in the past year.

Planning checklist

Prepare for success by getting started now.
2 months ahead: Research
  • Begin researching local cleaning companies. Make a list of those with positive reviews near you.
  • Call your prospective companies to verify that they perform deep cleaning services, not just regular house cleaning.
  • Have a date for the cleaning in mind, and call well enough in advance that the cleaning company still has openings available.
  • Interview the company owners, employees or other professionals. Verify that the cleaning pro or company carries liability insurance.
1–2 months ahead: Book
  • Choose a cleaner who you feel is trustworthy and has sufficient experience.
  • Book early to ensure you get the cleaning date you want. Remember that this project may take several days to complete.
2 weeks ahead: Learn more
  • Ask to see your cleaner's spring cleaning checklist so you can determine all the jobs that are included.
  • Have your cleaner add any specific tasks you desire to the checklist and discuss any pricing changes that might result.
1 week before: Organize
  • Take a quick look at each room in your home and do some prep work before the cleaner arrives.
  • Neaten up areas like offices and playrooms. Keeping clutter to a minimum helps your cleaning pros better navigate your space.
1 day before: Verify
  • Call your cleaning professional and ensure the company has the proper address and a good contact number for you.
  • If you won't be home, make the cleaners aware of any security codes and ensure the company can get into your house.
  • Let your neighbors know that a cleaning service will be at your house to clear up any confusion about who is inside.
The day of: Arrange payment
  • If you won't be home while the cleaners are there, make sure to leave a check or otherwise arrange to take care of your payment.
