  • Countertops
  • Picture frames, trinkets, and vases
  • Lamps and lampshades

  • Cleaning the Appliances Carefully

Wipe off all dirt and greasy layers from microwaves, stovetops, and fridges. Deep clean each appliance and disinfect it from harmful bacteria.

  • Wipe off the Dirt from each Surface

Clean and wipe off the dust from all the countertops, cabinets and drawers, windowsills, and backsplash.

You need to clean your bathrooms carefully to prevent them from getting too dirty. Clean the bathroom in the following order.

First, before cleaning the whole area, start by separating all the waste materials like bottles and all the unnecessary products. Now, apply the effective tile and grout cleaner with less chemical content to return the shining tile and grout. Follow this order for cleaning the bathroom;

  • Cleanse the Lavatory

Scrub inside and out of the lavatory with a special brush for that region.

  • Scrub the Washbasin

Use a spray to remove all the dark spots on the counters. Scrub all the parts of the sink basin, like the faucet and cabinet fronts.

  • Gently Clean the Mirrors

Apply a spray on the mirror glass and wipe off all the dirt, but clean it with a soft microfiber cloth.

  • Wash the Towels

After cleaning the bathroom area, collect all the grimy towels and put them in the washing machine to wash them.

The bedroom is the client’s comfort zone, so organize each part in the best way. Here is how to clean the bedroom.

  • Organize the Bed

Clean and organize the bed sheet tightly so that it looks aesthetically appealing.

  • Clean the Room

Make the room clean and tidy by putting everything in proper order. Arrange the books and toys on the shelf and dirty clothes in the laundry, and make the room look more comfy and ecstatic. After cleaning all the rooms, throw all the waste in the dustbin and deep clean the whole place.
