House Cleaning Maid Service Checklist for Routine House Cleaning

Routine House Cleaning

Spotless Maid Service’s Checklist is all about you: your home, your service, your priorities. We specialize in kitchens, bathrooms, floors and dusting, and on every cleaning, we'll make sure that those areas shine. The rest of your service is up to you: pick the living areas on which you want us to focus first and we'll work through all areas of your home according to your priority. We work with our weekly, bi-weekly and monthly clients to ensure that your "trouble spots" are clean.

Spotless Maid Service wants our clients to have a choice of the level of cleaning they receive at their home. That's why we offer our special DELUXE package to every client. You can request that package any time: every cleaning or when ever you think you need it. Every Top-to-Bottom Deluxe Cleaning includes the “General Cleaning” list items cleaned by hand with detail emphasis and focus on build up, plus the following:

  • Ceiling fan blades (hand washed or wiped)
  • Light fixtures (hand washed in place, not removed)
  • Blinds and shutters (vacuumed or dusted or wiped) mini-blinds dusted only
  • Baseboards (hand washed or wiped, reachable w/out moving furniture)
  • Lamps and lampshades (dusted or vacuumed with attachment)
  • Pictures Frames (hand wiped)
  • Furniture (polished, fronts, sides, legs)
  • All cabinet fronts (washed)
  • All doors (washed)
  • Tub/shower and tiles (double scrubbed if build up)


  • We do not climb higher than a 2-step ladder.  Higher items will be dusted with an extension duster.
  • We cannot move furniture, but we will try to reach any visable places either by hand or with an extension duster.
  • Many homes have at least one chandelier or vaulted ceiling fan that we cannot reach by hand.
  • Please allow for some dust resettlement after we leave, we try to limit the dust in the air but cannot prevent this entirely.
  • Art Work in Frames not covered by glass are dusted only (frame only not art)


We cannot guarantee the results of mini blind cleaning.  Excessive build up may require special cleaning.  Also due to the fragile design of mini blinds, they are easily bent or damaged and the draw strings can become non-functional, easily especially with age.
