What do cleaners clean anyhow?

"When doing it yourself just doesn't make sense anymore!"

What exactly does a 'cleaning' include? We asked Maid Sense Environmental Cleaning to give us a detailed outline. Owner Jan Grue responds:

At Maidsense, our cleaning includes

What about special requests?

"Special requests are encouraged," says Jan Grue. "And you can tailor the cleaning to your needs. For example if you have a large home, you can alternate rooms or floors to keep your cost down."

OK, what does this cost?

Prices reflect the cost of maintainance cleaning - every two weeks for example. Be aware that the first visit can take longer depending on the condition it is in for the first clean.

Apartments: (1bed- 3 bed) $68.00-85.00
Townhouses: $95.00-$120.00
Houses (1,500-2,300 sq. ft.) $125-140.00 (very small houses or bungalows would be less time)
