Departure Cleaning Services

Back   >>   Departure Cleaning Services: Complete cleaning of your home between friends and family.

Departure Clean Services are the complete cleaning of your vacation home, at your request. You can make this request by e-mail or by phone, a day in advance or a year in advance. We recommend that you e-mail, or request a confirmation when you call, because we’ll send you a written confirmation, via e-mail, from our system. This can help you remember what you have asked us to do and what you have not. It’s good to let us know departure and arrival times for your guests. Many homeowners who have guests departing and arriving on the same day set times for their guest arrive and depart. Recommended times would be from 10-11 am check-out with a 4 pm check-in. We also ask that you give us more than one day’s notice –preferably >72 hours in advance actually, regarding your service needs, so that we can staff appropriately. Regardless, we’ll try to do our best to make your request, our pleasure to complete.

Departure Clean Services consist of a thorough cleaning of your home, removal of soiled linens, and replacing with clean linens, if they are not laundered on site. If you are at present a patron of our Periodically Scheduled Services, or in the process of considering it, you may find that the addition of deep cleaning services may be needed to round out our Departure Clean Services. This upgrade, can with regular service, keep the cleaning of your vacation home worry free. It rotates periodic cleaning chores with each scheduled Departure Clean Service.

If Comprehensive Care Services are not selected, supplemental cleaning or even an annual deep cleaning may be necessary, and can be scheduled and performed every 3, 6, 9 or 12 months. Please look at our Departure Clean Service Details, as well as our other service headings to get further information. Contact us and we can set up services that will most benefit you and your family.
