Maintenance Cleaning vs. Deep Cleaning

It is highly recommended that you start with our Deep Cleaning so you get optimal results. If your ceiling fans, light fixtures, door and window trim has not been dusted on a regular basis, our routine cleaning will probably not give you the results you want.
The Deep (or Spring Clean) starts you off fresh and the routine cleanings can be thought of as “maintenance” to your home. To sum up the difference between the two cleans: we hand wipe all items listed in the Deep Cleats and feather dust most items in the Routine “Maintenance” Clean. However, we never feather dust countertops, dining tables tops, coffee tables tops, appliances, etc.
