Maintenance vs. Deep Cleaning

This Maintenance vs. Deep Cleaning course by Savvy Cleaner will help you explain to clients exactly what you do on each cleaning job. When house cleaners do a walkthrough they create a custom job proposal based on the customer’s priorities and needs. The walkthrough is the time to build value for the services you sell.
