I provide residential house cleaning for homes that are 3,000 sq. ft. or smaller. I have a very high standard of clean. I'm very thorough and detailed. I need the time to provide that level of service. If your home is 3,000 sq. ft. I will need approximately 12 hours to complete your first clean and approximately 8 hours for routine cleaning after that. For houses 3,000 sq. ft. or less you can estimate 4 hours of cleaning per 1,000 sq. ft. Please see rates below for more details and minimum charges. I love what I do and I look forward to working with you!

I'm a thorough and diligent cleaner. I'm happy to cover all cleaning needs in my rates noted above. I don't see a reason to up-charge for cleaning of interior appliances, blinds, baseboards, windows, etc., but please know that until your home is rotation ready will I be able to add in these more detailed cleaning elements. These are items that we will discuss together in order of your importance to your customized cleaning rotation.
An invoice will be sent after cleaning is finished. Payment is due upon receipt of your invoice. If payment is not received within five days of invoice receipt, your reserved cleaning dates will be forfeited (another client will be offered your regular cleaning dates).
