Final Cleaning for Flat in Zurich

Hi All,
We're moving out of our 3.5 room flat end of November and I'm desperately looking for any cleaning ladies to do the final cleaning. So if you know of any cleaning ladies you could recommend I'd be most grateful. I would pay CHF 25 per hour.
Many thanks,
Ebony

You might want to consider a cleaning company which guarantees handover (Übergabe).

This way, if the agency has any issues, just tell them to take it up with the cleaners.

Re: Final Cleaning for Flat in Zurich

Thanks but the cleaning companies are all giving me ridiculous prices. The last time I moved I had my cleaning lady do it with her four friends. It cost me CHF 400, and the Verwaltung said he'd never seen such a clean flat before. My cleaning lady cant do it now which is why I'm looking for 3-4 cleaning women to come and clean the flat.

Re: Final Cleaning for Flat in Zurich

Yeah, for the same reason I cleaned my own flat when I left a 3 room place in Basel a few months ago. It took me 12 hours single-handedly, but boy was it clean when I left. The fitted kitchen and bathroom were the worst.

I've heard some stories though of agencies not being satisfied. Anyway, got my full deposit back and saved myself a good couple of quid.

I can recommend our cleaners who have a "team" and maybe they would be interested in doing this - they are not a big company, just a small owner-operated business (most are Brazilian so if you speak Portugese, even better on the communication front). However, their price is CHF 30 plus VAT as they are not black market and therefore have all the appropriate insurances as such. However, I don't think they would provide the "guarantee" on acceptance of the cleanliness of the final walk through that the big cleaning companies do. PM if you would like their contact info.
