Curio Cabinets, China Cabinets and Chandeliers
A lot of people keep breakable and keepsakes in their curio cabinets or china cabinets. We feel it is best if you want us to clean inside of these cabinets to request if you would remove everything and when we finish cleaning the inside you then can put everything back. This way there is no chance of anything being broken. If you would like us to dust or glass clean any items we will. If you have any chandeliers that need dusting or cleaning just let us know ahead of time. If you have a lot of antiques in your home and would like to request a specific cleaner on your antique furniture just let us know ahead of time.
If you would like bed linens changed, just leave clean bed linens out on the bed the day of cleaning.
This can be done for no extra charge.
If you have a lot of clutter throughout the home, we suggest picking up and straighten before the cleaning so we can properly clean the home. If this is not possible we would need to charge a little extra to allow for the extra time of picking up and straightening the home before cleaning.
