Louise, do you speak German? All the companies I know of have no one who speaks English.

If you are moving overseas, and using a professional mover, many of those companies have ties to cleaning companies. The same can be said for the local moving firms so it is worth asking the moving company if one is involved.

Some time ago I posted some information about cleaning firms and local movers on the yahoo expats Baden group. It's messages are open so you can browse but I think you are a member, no?

Hi Mrs Doolittle,

I am a member of expats Baden, thank you for the information, I will go and have a look there now. I can speak German so hopefully I will get by when I call them.

Thanks again
Louise

The best one is called DO IT YOURSELF!
It costs normally at least CHF200. For that amount I would clean it myself. What a rip off

200 for what? The broom cupboard? An apartment? A house?
The whole idea of cleaning companies is that they do stuff you don't want to do yourself. Under those circumstances why shouldn't they charge decent money?

Agreed. It all depends on amount of cleaning involved... From my experience what the professional cleaner did, I could do by myself. Only after having discovered it too late I regretted.

If you have 4.5 room it might be a case. I had only 1.5 managable area

Re: Cleaning Company Recommendations?

You can clean any size place yourself (I did a 7.5 room house) if you have the time and energy.

Cleaning companies send a crew, 3 - 4 persons, and they bring industial strength products along with tools and machines that make the task easier. They have a system, usually they divide the group, one does the kitchen, one does the bath, for example.

The place should be spotless when they are done. They remove things where hidden dust collects (light switch covers, light fixture globes, for example).

Re: Cleaning Company Recommendations?

HI, I used a company called cleaning help, they speak English (runned by expats) and they charged me a very low price and provided a garanteed also.
The cleaning was quite deep so dont bother to think you can do it yourself.
You can find them in the commercial ads.

Re: Cleaning Company Recommendations?

Hi,

I'd be moving out of my current apartment around middle of October. As per my contract I'm required to get it cleaned from Professional Cleaners. But my apartment is a furnished apartment. My question is, would there be extra charges due to the apartment being furnished one? If yes, how much more do I have to shell out?

Also, I am required get all the bedsheets and covers washed and ironed. Do cleaning companies offer this service as well?

Thanks!
