Pick up the toys, laundry and anything else that is scattered throughout your home. This is especially true for important paperwork and mail!
Load the dishwasher, so the sink is empty to clean.
Leave some fresh linens out so the bed can be changed.
Make a Plan. Decide what you want the cleaning service to accomplish on that visit. If you are getting your house ready for a party, then you want your kitchen, dining and living rooms, and bathrooms to shine. If you need general cleaning, then your kids’ rooms and play room may need more attention. Having a plan means you get to prioritize your rooms and your cleaner will know exactly what to do to meet your expectations.
