*TAKE OUT TRASH/RECYCLABLES (owner provides trash bags). Recycling companies do NOT want recyclables placed inside plastic bags, tied shut ~ they do NOT open them, they get thrown away! Rinse all recyclables and place in "open" paper bags. Place these open paper bags inside your recycling container. This helps keep the inside of your recycling container clean and keeps the recyclables loose enough for sorting in the factory.

*PLEASE inquire about anything in advance that would need extra attention or another deep clean. Unexpected, unpaid projects adds on to MY TIME significantly and I may not be able to do it if not discussed in advance first, please be respectful.

*WASHING/CLEANING "CLOTH/FABRIC" BLINDS
*EXTERIOR WINDOWS (or INTERIOR WINDOWS not within ground level reach)
*PET ACCIDENTS (poo or vomit) ~ owner needs to visually see these accidents in order to determine if vet visits or change of food is needed, etc...
*PLEASE NOTE: If you do NOT have a "soft water" system, hard water stains will build up on shower doors and surfaces. Hard water also dries out your hair and skin. It also does not clean clothes or remove stains via the washing machine. Therefore, it is NOT my responsibility to remove hard water stain buildup. And, most products do not work to remove these stains, depending on the severity. Even in new remodels, hard water stains will cause permanent chalky buildup on faucets, countertops and shower doors. I encourage home owners to PLEASE have a soft water softener system installed to reduce/eliminate permanent hard water stain buildup on surfaces.
*SIDE NOTE: Because SAFETY comes first and I am a HUGE animal lover, I use natural cleaners and I keep anything "toxic" hidden (like a toilet brush, this is kept covered with a thick cloth at all times ~ pets would love a good scratch down, but they don't need germs!)
*ADDITIONAL SIDE NOTE: The insides of toilets are my #1 pet peeve and I do everything in my power to keep them clean and stain-free. Sometimes NOTHING will remove the stains/rings but sometimes my magic bag of tricks makes them disappear. I can make most stains disappear temporarily, but then they just keep coming back. This is due to either hard water in the home, not flushing the toilet after every single use or by not having a high quality stain resistant toilet. But let me reiterate ~ by not having a soft water system in your home, even the highest quality stain resistant materials will become permanently ruined. And remember to be sure your soft water tank always has water softener pellets in it (check on it every 1-2 months or more or less often, depending on how much water your home uses).
