Final Touch Housekeeping’s Detailed Cleaning List
           
Touch Zone 1 – Family Room and All Bedrooms
 
Don't start the cleaning section until you have organized and de-cluttered each Touch Zone.  If you have things out of place or too much clutter, you will quickly become frustrated and will not get optimal use of your time.  See our De-Cluttering Tips on our introduction blog.
 
If you are organized and de-cluttered, you are ready to begin!  Remember, just 15-20 minutes in each area of the Touch Zones.  You won't get to everything so don't stress at each list.  Over time and with the help of Final Touch Housekeeping, you will gain control of your home.
 
Once your home has been de-cluttered and organized, you are ready to start with our detailed list for cleaning Touch Zone 1.  When you hire Final Touch Housekeeping, you pay us to do everything on our list every time we clean your home (except for the front porch).  We don’t expect that you will get everything done, and that is fine.  Just doing 15 – 20 minutes in each Touch Area will help you maintain your home in between our cleanings.

Removing unwanted items from your bedroom is an integral part of cleaning up, that's one thing I've found.
