The Work Stuff

Finding the right housekeeper can be difficult, especially if you have never had a housekeeper before. What should you expect from the cleaning? How long does it take? What does it cost? Do you have to supply your own cleaning products?

Mary’s Minions charges $70 an hour for a two girl team. We always do a walk through and offer estimates for how long the cleaning will take and go over your expectations. A first time cleaning always takes a little longer than regular cleanings. Minions come with their own products (nature friendly chemicals when possible), rags and vacuum. Below is a list of our services. If there is anything that isn’t listed next to your service, just let us know and we’ll be happy to take care of it for you.

Detailed Clean: This is good for first time cleans and special projects or if you don’t feel you need weekly services. It does take us a little longer with these projects and works better with your instruction. The focus of the detailed clean is to get your house as clean as it can possibly be, making future cleanings faster and easier. Bathroom and Kitchen details include- Thorough scrubbing from top to bottom, including all appliances, cabinet fronts and all fixtures polished. Other areas of the house get all cobwebs knocked down, walls desmudged, bedding changed and beds made up, furniture vacuumed and/or polished, trim washed and floors vacuumed and/or mopped.  Some extra details include- Cleaning the inside of the oven and fridge, cleaning behind furniture, inside of vents, washing walls, ceilings, fans and light fixtures and inside window tracks.

Maintenance  Cleaning: Mary will detail your bathroom(s) and kitchen while another minion dusts, desmudges  light switch plates and trim, and details your floors. Our aim in general cleanings is to make your house feel clean and look well put together.

Move In/Move Out: Ceiling to floor, everything gets cleaned! Detailed Clean of the Kitchen and Bath including interior/exterior fridge, oven, cabinets, drawers, range hood. All other room details include desmudging walls, light switch plates, trim, wipe down of fans, fixtures and window tracks, and detail of all floors.

Professional Organization: Mary is the only minion for this service. There is a $50 initial one hour consultation fee, and following fees are negotiable.

General Minion Duties: We also do a wide variety of  ‘odd jobs’ that sometimes, you just don’t have time to get to. Some of these include- Painting, Party planning, Decorating, Menu planning and Catering, Serving, Party clean-up,  Assembly of IKEA furniture, BBQ assembly, Hanging Christmas lights (Interior and Exterior), Washing and folding laundry, Washing dishes, Light yard work (if you provide the tools). This is just a short list, and we love adding new things to it, so if you’ve got a project that isn’t listed, it never hurts to ask.

Mary’s Minions does much more than what is listed here simply because we can’t help but remove as much dust and shmutz as possible. We don’t wash windows as a general rule because we don’t have the time or the equipment to do a proper job, but we can recommend a few companies to help you out.
