Health-Benefits-Of-A-Clean-Home-Maid-Sailors-Cleaning-Service

The question remains: do fit people have more energy to clean their homes or are they disciplined in terms of their fitness and household cleanliness or do they simply call in help? Regardless, keeping a clean home has its benefits – a potentially fit body being just one of them.

Don’t Say Goodbye . . . Say So Long

            Closing The 

                        Summer Rental

                                        for the Season

When the leaves are falling off the trees at summer homes or the snow has finally melted around the winter cabin, preparing to leave can be bittersweet.

There are many reasons to spend time closing a seasonal home properly including burst pipes, vandalism, rodents, and structural damage.

To avoid these pitfalls and make re-opening the summer home easier, here are 10 tips to help close your seasonal properties.

  1. Clean out the kitchen. Thoroughly clean out the refrigerator and unplug it; you don’t want mildew damaging your appliances in the spring. Also, clean the cabinets and cupboards.

 

  1. Clean out the living areas and bedrooms. Store away bedspreads and linens (use vacuum bags to store) — there is no place more comfortable for rodents to sleep than in your bedspread. Allow your cabin to breathe while you are away. Leave doors and drawers open to increase circulation.

 

  1. Block off the flues and stovepipes. Make sure you have closed the flue on your stove. Also, sealing flues and stovepipes with a metal cap should keep the birds and rodents out.

 

  1. Cover the windows. Plywood or thin sheet metal will do. Put handles on the outside of the wood (one on each side to make easy to pick up) and number the pieces to make next year’s close easier. Sealing your cottage will not only protect it from the weather but will also keep unwanted visitors away.

 

  1. Drain the pipes. Make certain that you drain and shut off your water before you leave for good. The last thing you want is for lingering water to freeze your pipes.

 

  1. Don’t forget the little things. Sometimes the little things are often overlooked. Make sure you forward your mail to your permanent address. Make sure your service contacts, like plumbers and electricians, know how to reach you away from the summer home. With my “snowbird” clients – I offer this service as part of my cleaning package.

 

  1. Consider security. If you are concerned about intruders, deadbolts are an option as well as hiring a year-round resident to keep his or her eyes out for you. You should also consider motion detector lights and security cameras to deter unwanted visitors.

 

  1. Remove fire hazards. This is as easy as removing all papers, newspapers, old rags, and chemicals, turning off all utilities and unplugging appliances.

 

  1. Secure outside furniture, equipment, and boats. Take the time to gather all outside furniture and clean it before you secure and cover it. Turn your small boats upside down and if there is a drain hole, open it up, making sure it is on the downhill side of any slope.

 

  1. Don’t Say Goodbye – Say So Long. Before you pull out of your driveway for the season, don’t be afraid to reflect on the wonderful season it has been. Think about all the new things that happened, special times you had and the long-lasting memories that still await. Reflection of time is priceless.

Peace Harmony & Happy Autumn!

Bungalow Apartment organize and clean

Cleaning is one of the most tiresome chores that one needs to do on a regular basis.  You may wish to have a sparkling apartment that always looks as though it has just been renovated, but, most of the time, it remains only a fantasy as you find it very difficult to decide where to start cleaning. You may start the cleaning process, but, other obligations get in the way, at the end no matter how hard you try- things still look the same. So, what should you do in order to keep your apartment clean and presentable or to get ALL your deposit returned to you with your Apartment Move-Out Procedure? 

Well, I have an idea . . . Hire CC Home Concierge Company

Apartment Cleaning Prices List

Apartment cleaning prices are based on one-time cleans like a vacant apartment or move-out cleaning. The two most intensive areas for cleaning in an apartment are the kitchen and bathrooms, and the time and effort to clean a bathroom is significantly more than it is to clean a bedroom or a living room, and you’ll see that reflected in my Apartment Cleaning Price List. 

Bedrooms Bathrooms Price
4 2 $140 to $200
3 2 $135 to $180
2 2 $100 to $130
2 1 $90 to $120
1 2 $80 to $110
1 1 $60 to $90

Cleaning Service Add-Ons

 Look to see what you can add to your regular clean. Expect to pay:

  • Indoor pets – $5
  • Doing the laundry – $10 to $50
  • Window cleaning – $50
  • Cleaning the insides of the windows – $10
  • Cleaning the fridge – $12
  • Cleaning the interior of the oven – $15
  • Cabinet organization – $50 (depends on the size/amount of cabinets)

*Once you become a member of the CCHC Team a discounted price will be worked into a customized flat cleaning fee for your cleaning needs* 

Apartment Deep-Cleaning Rates Per Hour

In general, average hourly rates for apartment Deep-Cleaning services are $20 to $40 per worker per hour, with many jobs totaling between $80 and $160 (4 hr/clean). Prices depend on the number of rooms and bathrooms, and the extent of the cleaning needed. Some cleaning companies advertising a specific dollar amount for the first three hours – then a different rate for each subsequent hour, the below is the flat rate fee CCHC charge.

One-Time Clean Standard Clean Deep Clean Move Out Clean
Small 1-bedroom one-bathroom apartment cleaning, the average cost $75 (3.75) $107 (5.35) $127 (6.30)
Large 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment cleaning, starts at $135 (6) $180 (9) $215 (11)

 

Move-Out Cleaning Cost

The average cost of move-out cleaning in an empty apartment is between $127 and $215. Vacant apartment cleaning or move-out cleaning, as it is also known, it’s a deep clean of an empty apartment, and that time is spent doing the best work possible to help renters ensure they get as much of their deposit back as possible – I focus on getting it ALL back!.

Bedrooms Bathrooms Price
4 2 $220 to $275
3 2 $170 to $215
2 2 $140 to $190
2 1 $127 to $175
1 2 $85 to $127
1 1 $75 to $120
