What do I need to do before you come?
We ask that you have any small furniture pieces moved out of the areas you would like to have cleaned. We do a pre-vacuum but ask that you have any large debris picked up before we arrive. We do not move furniture due to liability issues, but our technician will clean around larger pieces that are not moved.
