4 Things To Do Before Your Cleaners


Having a cleaner for the first time might make you may wonder what to do to prepare. Should you straighten up? Should you clean for the housecleaners? Figuring out what to do to ready the house for a first-time cleaning service can be unclear.

Me & The Maids has your back. Here are four things you can do to prepare the house for maid service.

1. Put Your Personal Belongings Away


The only person qualified to handle personal belongings and valued keepsakes is you. This doesn’t go for just money, passports, and jewelry. Valued knick-knacks, books, and antiques are all things that count. 

Before the cleaning team arrives, make sure you have scanned the house for any items you don’t want to be misplaced. Clear them off of places like the dining room table, or other areas where they may just be sitting out. This way, as the cleaning service is tidying up, they can avoid putting the item somewhere it doesn’t go.

2. Pick up Any Clothes or Laundry Around the House


If you have dirty clothes, sheets, and other items lying around the house, it would be best to pick them up. 

Check in the bathroom, bedroom, or laundry room and make sure to put everything in the washer or a hamper. 

3. Is it ok if my pet is home when you clean?

Yes, absolutely. We are very pet-friendly and look forward to meeting you and your pet!

4. Clear Any Dirty Dishes

Before the cleaning service arrives, place dirty dishes in the dishwasher. This way, few objects are in the way. Your cleaners can do a more thorough job — and you don’t have to worry about the dishes later!
