Glossary

So you know exactly what we mean, we would like to take a moment to identify some areas for definition:

Kansas City Ks Cleaning Service Maids Our Process
  • Condition

    As with leather or woodwork, we thoroughly clean the surface, then apply a specially designed product intended to restore shine and help the surface last longer. It is especially beneficial to condition woodwork twice a year: after the winter, when in-door heat causes wood to dry out, and at the beginning of spring/summer to protect the wood from extra dust entering the home, sunlight and animals. Leather should be conditioned on an as-needed basis.

  • Disinfect

    The industry standard is for a product to set on a surface for 15 minutes to thoroughly saturate in order to remove bacteria and germs.

  • Dust

    There are two types of dusting: dry dusting and hand dusting. “Dry dusting” involves a high-quality feather duster, and allows the maid to efficiently remove dust from areas without spending unnecessary labor. “Hand dusting” with a treated microfiber cloth involves the maid picking up an item, hand-detailing for dust, then carefully replacing the item to its rightful position.

  • Green Cleaner

    An effective cleaning product made up of environmentally-friendly ingredients

  • Hand-detail

    The maid uses a treated microfiber cloth to focus on cleaning details of an item, such as each slat of a set of blinds, every part of the baseboards, each and every decorative item on shelves, etc.

  • Hand-mop

    The maid is on their hands and knees, using a specially treated soft cloth, to pick up every bit of debris or to carefully wipe scuff-marks (especially recommended in the kitchen and bathrooms)

  • Polish

    Depending on the material (wood, chrome, glass, etc.), we use appropriate cleaners to remove build-up and dirt to bring out the materials’ natural luster.

  • Sanitize

    The spraying on of a specifically designated cleaner to remove surface germs and bacteria, then immediately wiping dry

Customer ReviewsWhat Our Clients Are Saying

Fantastic service! Literally the fastest, most thorough cleaning process I've ever experienced. I had a baby three weeks ago, and within two hours of their arrival, my place was spotless! They made sure that both my baby and I were comfortable by cleaning his and my room first. They went above and beyond with special touches such as cleaning my patio furniture and baseboards. Margaret McHenry Maids was on time,... Alanna | Kansas City, MO
I love the Margaret McHenry Maids. They are thorough, polite, and work in a timely manner. I have already recommended them to my friends and family. I also appreciate that the same ladies come each week. Dianne M. | Kansas City
Wonderful company! They are, by far, the best cleaning company I have ever used. I had a three-bedroom apartment, and they would do a biweekly clean. When I would come home after they would leave the place was so clean it was like a different place. They are absolutely amazing and were recommended to me by a local moving company.
