Suggested Scheduling


Below is a list of suggested scheduling.  You do not have to clean your projects in this order; however, we have found this to be the most cost effective.  We are flexible in our scheduling and understand that what is best for one builder is not necessarily the best for you.

If the house is a spec:

Try to schedule the clean 1 and pre-carpet clean together. 
Be sure that the hardwood floors have had their first coat, cabinets have been drilled for hardware,
and wallpaper has already been hung.  Try to schedule this clean for the day before carpet gets installed.

 

The day after the carpet is installed, schedule the after carpet clean. 
If these two cleans are scheduled as close together as possible, you can save a substantial amount of money. 
This is also the time you may want to schedule some inventory protection.

 

Schedule the Top to bottom clean and re-clean inside and outside windows once all the subcontractors
have completed their work.  Now your completed spec is in perfect shape to sell, you may want to schedule
it for a weekly or biweekly spec clean to keep it in good shape.

 

If the house is sold:

           Try to schedule the clean 1 and pre-carpet clean together. 
You may also want to save the first time clean on the outside windows for the move in clean;
this way, you only have to clean them once.  We do not suggest waiting on the inside windows
because there is usually a lot of paint and texture on the glass and frames that needs to be
removed before carpet goes down.  Be sure that the hardwood floors have had their first coat,
cabinets have been drilled for hardware, and wallpaper has already been hung.  Try to schedule
this clean for the day before carpet gets installed.

 

            The day after the carpet is installed, schedule the after carpet clean. 
If these two cleans are scheduled as close together as possible, you can save a substantial amount of money. 
This is also the time you may want to schedule some inventory protection.

 

            Schedule the Move in clean, re-clean inside windows, first time clean on outside windows after all subcontractors have completed their work.

 

***A couple key items to think about when scheduling***

            Sanding of the hardwood floors makes a giant mess.  Major cleans should not be scheduled before this is done if possible.

            Sanding of the sheetrock so that wallpaper can be hung on a smooth surface will leave a fine dust on everything in that area.  Major cleans should not be scheduled before this is done if possible.
