Re: Final cleaning: self or cleaning agency?

I cleared my apartment of everything so it was bare, like when I moved in.

I started at the back room, so I would not need to walk back through to it causing prints or anything.

I made my way around in a logical order, ensuring that I would not need to go back and potentially dirty what I had cleaned.

I did things in this order:

1. Cleaned windows inside and out
2. Dusted whole room, ceilings, walls, switches, skirting
3. I then cleaned with a cloth, the lights, switches, and skirting
4. I then hoovered the room
5. I then got my pads on, and scrubbed the floors. To ensure proper clean, mops dont always catch things.
6. Sprayed freshner
7. Moved onto next room

I repeated this process for each room in the building. The oven had broken right before I moved and was to be replaced so fortunately didnt have to tackle that one.

Fridge was naturally cleaned, kitchen wardrobes etc etc.

This took me approximately 10 hours. I had never cleaned so hard in my life. I have much respect for professional cleaners now.

I was proud though!

Upon entry of apartment for inspection, it was deemed not clean enough.

I had to pay 660chf.

Will I be cleaning again? No chance!
