Touch Zone #5 - All Bathrooms, Laundry Room, Guest Bedroom and Office/Den

Your home may not look like this, but we can clean any home from a 650 sq. ft. condo to a 15,000 sq. ft. mansion.  We don't cut corners, we clean them. Details are important. 
 
Final Touch Housekeeping’s Detailed Cleaning List
 
Touch Zone 5 – All Bathrooms, Laundry Room, Guest Bedroom/Den, and Office
 
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 5.  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.
 
Many homes today contain delicate materials.  An unexperienced house cleaning service may damage these materials if not cared for correctly.  We know how to care for all of these delicate materials. Details are important.All Bathrooms Touch Zone

2.  Throw away empty bottles
3.  Clean the shower walls and glass
4.  Use a SQUEEGIE on the walls AND the glass EVERYTIME they get wet – then dry the walls and glass
5.  Use Turtle Wax or Pledge to wax the interior shower glass

9.  Spot clean your bathroom cupboard and drawer fronts

11. Wipe off window sills

We know the laundry room is the most used and most unappreciated room in your house.  We will get it clean and shiny from the appliances to the sink and counter to the floors and even the baseboards! Details are important.Laundry Room

Often guest bedrooms are not used unless you have guests - what an idea?  We don't believe in paying for rooms to be cleaned when they aren't used.  Ask us to price your guest bedroom ala carte so you can add it when you need it cleaned. Details are important.Guest Bedroom / Den

Getting everything organized is a good practice. You'll never know when inconvenience will bring you to sudden despair.
