Hire A Maid Post-Renovation Cleanings

Your renovation is almost complete! You’ve invested a lot time and money creating the home you’ve always dreamed of. There’s only one thing missing: you need a thorough cleaning to make it pristine and liveable.

Let Hire A Maid deliver the meticulous cleaning your home deserves. Our supervised teams have performed thousands of deep cleanings and will give your home the attention to detail and care it needs to achieve the perfection you want.

A post-renovation cleaning is unlike any other cleaning as the dust literally gets everywhere -- even with the most conscientious contractor – and the dust has a chalky quality that requires patience and care to remove from all surfaces.

Our post-renovation house cleaning teams bring commercial-grade products and tools, including HEPA-filtration vacuums, to tackle the remnants of even the largest renovation.

Every cleaning is inspected by the team’s working Supervisor to ensure that all requirements are met, and a checklist (as shown below) of work completed is provided.

And, because every renovation project is unique, Hire A Maid provides a free on-site consultation before the cleaning to develop your customized post-renovation cleaning plan and a written quote for your home.
