January 2023 – Happy New Year 🙂

Happy New Year!

I cannot believe it is that time of year again! The time of year when we truly get to sit down and think about the things we did in the past year, the things we want to improve, and the habits we want to break! This time of year is fantastic because it gives us time to create a new plan to attack the goals we want to achieve. 

Time is all we have when it comes to achieving a goal. Here at MTDL, we value your time. We want to see everyone in our community ticking off their goals. However, we also have to be realistic. Life happens. You get busy; things start piling up, guests are coming and going, and loved ones are at home over the holidays and wanting your attention. It can be overwhelming, OR you simply want to focus your time on things other than cleaning, laundry, bed-making, and taking out the rubbish!  

I get it. I want you to know that the To-Do Guru Team is onto it. We want to help you out by doing what we do best. So, for the first post of the year, I thought it would be good to give you a rundown of ALL of our services to remind you how we can provide value…

My To Do List Services 2023!

Tidy Up service.  Did you know we have short, sharp visits under 2 hours? These are for weekly or fortnightly cleaning for smaller spaces or shorter to-do lists! This service is popular with apartment-dwellers living on a single level or in small offices that just need a dust, vacuum, and the rubbish removed.

  • 30-, 60-, and 90-minute visits

  • Return Tidy Ups are where we return to the home or office in the same week; usually, the days are spaced apart, such as Tuesday and Thursday 🙂

Helping Hand service.  Our most popular service for regular cleaning of average-size homes and small offices or longer to-do lists. Many customers have a tailored list of tasks for us to tackle each week, and some customers put lower-priority tasks on a rotating schedule.

From 2hrs

  • We can do half hour increments, as well, ie, 2.5hrs

  • Some customers need 3 or 4hrs per week

  • Return Helping Hand visits are where we return to the home or office in the same week, usually the days are spaced apart such as Tuesday and Thursday. Some customers use this service 5 days a week!  👍

Delivery service.  Drop-off or pick-up, ie Click and Collect

  • Your Guru can drop laundry off to the local laundromat or pick up a prescription for you

  • Add a Delivery on the day of your Tidy Up or Helping Hand service

  • Add a Delivery as a permanent weekly event or add it occasionally, as needed

  • If you need more than just a quick pick up or drop off, we can also do Shopping! Some customers will identify specific brands and items for us to buy (such as pet food or a particular art supply). whilst others give us a general list to hunt down (such as “white cotton single bed sheets” or “a new toilet brush under $30.”), You can prioritize your time when you have a Personal Shopper doing the run-around! 
    Add-On services.  With our professional business partners. If your Add-On service happens at the same time as your Home Clean, we can reduce invoices for you and put the charges all together on your regular MTDL invoice.
