The Merlin Cleaning domestic cleaning task list, gives you personalization and efficiency from our service. Providing you with total satisfaction and control over your requirements.

domestic cleaning task list

We designed the following task list for our domestic cleaning services, so it also meets the requirements for pre/end of tenancy cleans.

Completion of the list, not allowing for indicated specific tasks/requirements, will require a 4 hour time slot. However, if you wish to spread the more time consuming tasks over shorter repeat bookings for regular domestic cleaning, you can use this as a guide to prepare a more personalised list of requirements for the each visit.

*Cleaning Tasks marked with Asterisk can take longer to perform, or may require additional team members. If you are unsure of how much time to allocate when such tasks are required, feel free to give us a call and we can guide you on your requirements. Deeper cleaning of walls, ceilings, inside ovens, certain items of furniture and certain appliances, may need more specialised or specific treatment.  We can advise you on your requirements during booking.
