Coquitlam Housecleaning Services Makes Life Easy

Coquitlam HouseCleaning Services Makes Life Easy!
Coquitlam family says, “We didn’t realize how cost effective it was to hire someone to clean our house. Spic n Span house cleaning services are reasonably priced and Heather cleaned places we would never want to admit neglecting. We recommend this housecleaning service to all Coquitlam homes!”
SPRING is in the air … and so is all the dust, dog, and cat hair.
You know that moment when the sun shines through the window and you look down at your couch and wonder when it grew a hair blanket?
Spic ‘n Span knows and understands that cleaning isn’t just a surface wipe down.  It’s wet-wiping down that couch…and other furnishings.  It’s turning the chairs over and de-hairing the bottom of the legs.  It’s actually moving the table to remove the month long hair halos created over the winter.  I did this last week and found a candy cane… lol.

This week we are looking to expand our house cleaning services to include more Coquitlam families. We know that families are busy, and we make sure to clean the late night snacks remnants between the cushions. You wouldn’t believe all the hidden spots we find dog and cat hair. It’s important for your health to keep your house clean, and we just hope you decide to use our house cleaning services. Spic ‘n Span has developed a technique that is thorough and saves you, the customer, money hiring professional apolstery cleaners. 
Nothing like the bright sunshine of the onset of SPRING to show your home at….uh, its worst, right?  The lovely floating dust of window ledges being left untouched for a season…or two. 
 The back splash area in the kitchen hidden behind the toaster, mixer, blender, and every other gadget owned,or at least made […]


  HOUSECLEANING TIPS…is your toilet REALLY clean?
Spic ‘n Span Housecleaning Services has been cleaning in the Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody areas successfully for over 6 years.
  We have come to recognize not only the independent needs of each home clean, but also the viewpoint of doing a really good housecleaning job.
  For example, the only way to really do a good job cleaning a bathtub is by actually GETTING IN the tub.  It’s true…leaning and swiping just won’t do a good job.
Only by putting yourself in the area will allow you to see and feel the cleaning surface from a proper perspective. This is so important in one of the aspects of housecleaning.
  In saying that the same theory applies to cleaning a toilet and the surrounding area. You certainly are not going to get INSIDE a toilet but it just is not efficient or effective to lean over the toilet to the back and try to clean baseboards and pipes.
  You really have to SQUAT, yes I said it, to do a proper job!  A truly great job of cleaning  the toilet can be seen through the eyes of someone who has stomach flu…where every part of the commode is visible.
  On the other hand (or backend) a bathtub clean is truly appreciated from the perspective of the other end of the flu.  The insides are seen clearly as well as the outside and design edges.  Baseboards are clearly seen and edge around tub.
  So next time you find yourself in either position while suffering the flu…ask yourself if your housecleaning service is doing a REALLY detailed job.As you can see, housecleaning is more than a Swiffer and a swipe.  Any GOOD housecleaning job requires […]

3 Things Home Owners Need To Know

3 things that homeowners need to know before hiring a cleaning company

3 Things Home Owners Need to Know


Make sure you check off these points from your list, before you hire any house cleaning  company!
1. Is the company I am considering insured?
2. Is the time frame reasonable for what I want done?
3. How many people will be in my home?

Before hiring a cleaning company to come into the privacy of your home there are some other things you, the owner, should take into consideration.
Not all companies look at your space (clean)independently.  Ask what their cleaning priorities are.
Ask questions about the companies cleaning policies and procedures.
Ask for current reviews and what review sites are used to promote the business. If you find some reviews that are not positive ask about the situation and how it was resolved.
Ask if the owner is an operator as well.  Most like  it when the owner themselves are “on the tools”, able to be on site, or make themselves available to you.
Ask the owner what makes them different from other companies.  Ask about the products and why they were chosen for the job.

We would love to hear your experience about hiring companies, please leave a comment below.
