Re: Final cleaning: self or cleaning agency?

I told my landlord I can't find an agency (everyone I spoke to said they were only working with existing clients) that can do the end cleaning, and he said he will arrange it and the cost is 680CHF.

But true. the agencies I did find charged minimum of 1000CHF so I think 680 is a good deal. Still ridiculous expensive compared to the end cleaning of my home back in the US which was just $150.

$150 ? For bringing out the trash and flushing the toilet?

Re: Final cleaning: self or cleaning agency?

My husband moved twice while we did not find an appropriate apartment ,that satisfied the conditions that Mogrationsamt asked him ,when he apply for my visa.

Both times we clean the flats ourselves using the advice that I got from a friend ,that has reinigung company . I help her several times,and I saw what is importanat....Bouth time,we I done everything alone,and it was ok...

The secret is the razor blade, water,and medical alcohol...nothing alse... Of course,for the kitchen and bathroom you need to use preparations that removed scale formed by water,and for the oven spray to kill the fat,but dont use expencive stuf for flors,windows,wood,ceramic,metal.....just use water and alcohol....when you think everything is clean ,look again under the sink, under kitchen units, that is what they watch and controlling. ..

I am currently unemployed and if someone needs help ,around Zürich or Winterthur,I will be glad to help with a symbolic payment...Just write me at pp...
