If there is anything that is extremely wet, including towels, and or linens, please hang securely outside so that the items don't get mildewed or ruined.

6. ALL DISHES MUST BE WASHED, and the dishwasher must be filled, and run prior to checkout, the caretaker will put them away when she cleans the house. Also, if you use other appliances, like the George Forman Grill, Crock Pot or like items, please clean them, don't leave them dirty, that's just gross!

7. Please start a large load of towels and wash clothes for the cleaning crew. This will help in expediting the cleaning process, as towels do take an exceptionally long time to dry usually.

8. Clean up after yourself. The cleaning crew is there to clean all hard surfaces, sanitize, and prepare the house for incoming guests. The cleaning crew should not have to clean after guests. If you make it dirty, clean it, if you break, replace it, or pay for it (also let us know so we can order it), if you use it, put it back where you found it.

We ask that you are gentle with our home, its furnishings, and surroundings.
We will ask for funds if extra cleaning is needed (due to not taking care of our home, and picking up after yourselves), breaking or taking any of our property, and ruining any of our property., including, but not limited to lamps, blinds, furniture, appliances, bedding, floors, towels, equipment, and accessories.

If there is excessive trash, bottles, dishes left dirty in the sink, furniture and furnishing moved or scattered or repositioned (someone has to move them all back where they belong, and wash the dishes), dirt, grime, animal waste, cigarette butts, and any other negligent acts that cause the caretaker to take more than the 2-3 hours of cleaning time normally allotted.
