Cleaning Up Before the Clean Up Crew Arrives

We get this question from a lot of customers: “What do I need to do before your professional cleaning crew arrives?” We think it’s worth taking just a little time to explain why it is a good idea to take a little time to “clean up before the big cleanup.” We know that seems counterintuitive. After all, you’re paying a professional home cleaning crew to do this for you, right? But the truth is, if you want our crews to do the best job we can, it does require just a bit of preparation on your part.

Manage the clutter

Our crews can get a lot more cleaning done if you’ve taken a few minutes before we arrive to pick up the clutter. Put shoes and coats in their place, make sure dishes are not in the sink, ensure that kid or pet toys are in their appropriate areas. Our teams can spend more time cleaning, rather than organizing your home and you’ll be happier with the end result!

Put away valuables

We’re not talking about the fancy vase or something that is a part of your home decor. Think small electronics, cash or loose change or jewelry. Grace Home Cleaning in Omaha fully vets and background check our employees, but it is never a good idea to ask your cleaning service to be responsible for keeping track of your valuables.

Pick up valuable papers or documents

If you are the type to make piles of your important papers, bills, letters, etc., that’s okay; it happens to the best of us! But, before your professional home cleaning crew arrives, it is a great idea to put these papers in some sense of order or to put documents in an area, so the cleaning crew does not need to move or touch the pile. For some, it’s helpful to place a basket or sorting tray where these relevant papers can go until you need them.

Secure pet(s)

Grace Home Cleaning of Omaha loves your pets, and we want to ensure that your pet’s experience as little stress as possible with our cleaning crew being in their space.

We ask that you keep your pets, contained during the time we are working in your home as this provides a peace of mind for you and your pet while we dust, vacuum, mop, and more!
