Basic Cleaning Checklist

Tasks done during each basic one-time cleaning service.

Each of the activities below is within the standard scope of the cleaning service. Your cleaning person will perform these tasks unless you specifically ask them not to do so. However, since your final bill depends on the duration of the cleaning, you may want to narrow down the scope of cleaning if you have a limited budget.

Kitchen Cleaning

  • Dust all available surfaces.
  • Wipe down exterior of appliances and cabinets.
  • Clean floor surfaces.

Bedroom Cleaning

  • Dust all accessible surfaces.
  • Make the bed.
  • Clean floor surfaces.

Bathroom Cleaning

  • Wash & sanitize the toilet, shower, tub, and sink.
  • Wipe down mirrors and glass surfaces.
  • Clean floor surfaces.

Living Room Cleaning

  • Dust all accessible surfaces.
  • Clean the exterior of cabinets.
  • Clean floor surfaces.

Optional special requests

You can request the following services at no additional fees. Please keep in mind that even though there are no extra charges for these services, they will increase the cleaning duration, and so your total bill will be higher. Some of the below services require specialized equipment, and so we ask you to request them in advance, in the booking form.

Limescale Removal

  • De-limescale & polish the shower cabin.
  • De-limescale & polish the sink area.
  • Remove limescale from other surfaces in the bathroom.

When should you book a basic one-time cleaning service?

A one-time bacis cleaning service is the best way to try our services before committing to a regular cleaning plan. You can book a single appointment, and decide later on whether it is something for you. If you like the results, you can request the regular cleaning, and we will assign the same cleaning person to you.

Many people already have their regular cleaning person. They are happy with them, and don't want to make a change. We get it! Trusted cleaners are hard to come by and always in high demand - we interview hundreds of cleaning people every year, so take our word for it. If you find the one you like to work with, keep them by all means. But when they go on vacation, or are on a sick leave, don't panic! Simply book a one-off cleaning service with us, and we will match you with one of the vetted cleaners using our platform.

One-time cleaning service is also very popular among Airbnb hosts and short-term rental managers, especially during the spikes in the number of check-ins and check-outs on a given day. A cleaning person booked with us can fill the gap in your regular cleaning team during the most busy periods.

"I am absolutely satisfied with the cleaning services of SPIC AND SPAN. Home & Office Cleaning. As promised, all of the cleaned areas are spotlessly clean and I am positively surprised with the attention to detail. I particularly enjoy the feeling of coming to the clean kitchen. "

"We turned to SPIC AND SPAN after the renovation of the apartment. I did not even expect that our apartment would be so clean and fresh. Made such a difference compared to my every day clean. Thank you for your huge and hard work! All was done quickly and carefully with an understanding of the needs and desires of customers. We have now decided to use SPIC AND SPAN. Home & Office Cleaning for our regular cleaning. Awesome service and will definitely recommend to friends. "

"Over the years I've hired multiple cleaning people for my apartment. Some did a better job, some worse. Most of them unfortunately were not reliable. Last minute cancellations were a norm rather than the exception. The frequency with which good cleaning people quit the cleaning industry is something that puzzles me to this day. Every few weeks I had too look for another cleaner. I got tired of it one day, and decided to book a cleaning with SPIC AND SPAN. Home & Office Cleaning. The quality of the service is good, but what's more important to me is that they handle all the communication with cleaning people, and are able to find a substitute in case my regular cleaning person is not able to do the scheduled cleaning. "

"I took advantage of such cleaning services for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. I think my house has never been so clean! Besides, I had some concerns about letting a stranger in my house, but the cleaner was very nice and knew good English, there was no discomfort at all! Thank you for your service. I am sure that I will book with you again! "

"Eva was great! She made sure we were on the same page with expectations by doing a walk through before and after completing the job. She spent 3 hours cleaning several areas in my house and it was spotless when she was done! She was also pet-friendly and great at getting the fur off my carpet. The house has never looked so good. A big thank you. "

Tylissa K.

USA

"The cleaner arrived at the appointed time, got familiar with the volume and started to clean up. A very interesting approach: first a vacuum cleaner, then a duster... In response to my question, she explained that this way the dust still flies out of the vacuum cleaner, and then she cleans it with a wet cloth!) Cleaning took around 3 hours, everything shines, sparkles and feels clean. Overall happy with the service. Thank you! "

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the 100% satisfaction guarantee work?

After the cleaning service you have 24 hours to check whether you like the results. If you're not satisfied, please contact our customer support via email or phone, and tell us about wha went wrong. You may request a free 'correction cleaning' (with the same, or different cleaning lady depending o your preference). You may also be eligible for a discount on future cleanings, as well as partial or 100% refund.

How can I subscribe to the cleaning service?

To subscribe to a cleaning service you need to order a "regular cleaning" and select the date of the cleaning. Our customer support will contact you via email (or phone, if you prefer) to ask about your preferred frequency of the service. You can also specify that directly in the booking form. In the near future we're planning to add a subscription option to our booking form.

What is the minimum subscription period?

There is no minimum subscription period. We only ask you to commit to at least 2 cleaning appointments - you can cancel your subscription after the second appointment without consequences. If you're not sure whether the subscription is something right for you, we recommend you try the one-time home cleaning service.

What is the minimum duration of the cleaning I can book?

The minimum duration of the regular cleaning service is 2 hours. 2 hours is usually a minimum required time to properly clean a bathroom, a kitchen, and other areas even at smallest homes. If you choose a deep cleaning service, we recommend booking at last 3 hours.
