Maintenance Cleaning

Maintenance cleaning


A maintenance is a cleaning that maintains highly used, touched areas and surfaces, with a specific focus on areas that need more attention to keep ontop for mould, mildew and bacteria build up. These specific focused areas do have a more details done, but overall, this cleaning is just to maintain and keep on top of the highly used areas. Flat hand wiping is used in areas with minimal items to move/touch, and only spot wiping is used on cupboards for general maintenance of light build up. Dusters and cobweb brooms are used mainly for dusting as hand wiping takes much more time. At least 1/3 of the visit will focus on the floor.  If items are lifted such as on beds and sofas, they are left there to help save time and enable cleaner to focus attention on more details.  Putting items back takes more time.
