What I provide
I provide most of the smaller items, including the following.
- Cleaning products, at least initially.
- Detailing tools for the kitchen, bathrooms and “other rooms”.
- Dust masks, gloves and knee pads.
- Vacuum attachments, in some cases.
- And more.
Some items will stay at your house for as long as the service continues.
What you provide
Please provide the materials summarized below. In turn, I pass along my savings to you.
Not sure what a canister is? Or the difference it makes? Check out my blog post, Canister vs Upright— A Vacuum For Your Healthy Home.
Washer and drier
For towels, along with microfiber cleaning cloths and mopping pads.
Details here on the following:
- Running the loads
- Using safe laundry soaps
- Avoiding dry sheets and fabric softener
Step stool and step ladder
Sturdy, for reaching higher surfaces.
And key tools
- Towels. For damp-dusting, and wiping down the kitchen and bathroom. The best types are wash cloths and hand towels. Only 100%, highly-absorbent cotton works.
- All-purpose microfiber cleaning cloths. Buy 1/2 dozen. I use microfiber sparingly, as a backup to towels. One reason is because unlike cotton, microfiber needs special laundering. Ask me about other reasons.
- High duster. Used sparingly, for any dust the vacuum can’t reach. Ettore is one example.
- Microfiber mop. A simple mop with flat head and machine-washable pads. Please have a Bona type handy.
- Buckets with handles. You’ll need four three-gallon ones. Sturdy is key.
