We are looking for a quote for a once off house cleaning job for next Friday, early morning 19/7/13 in Balmain.

Please read carefully and quote for the job.
If you feel you want to pop over to give a quote, that is also ok, but don't expect to get it on the spot.
What I do not want is someone to give a low quote only to come over here and increase it. You will commit to the quote you give, for the job I am describing in details below. I was very detailed, so there should not be any surprises. In essence it is our regular clean, even easier, because the house will be empty, and this house has been cleaned regularly, so you are not invited to clean years of dirt and grime.

It is a 3 bedroom town house with 2.5 bathrooms, but only 2 of the bedrooms (out of 3) will need to be cleaned.

The bedrooms need to be vacuumed (they will be empty, so no dusting),
clean light switches,
door frames and handles,
and mirror cupboard door in one of them.

Vacuum small corridor between the 2 rooms and all the stairs (31 stairs with carpet in 2 sections of 16 and 15 stairs),
Clean staircase railings with surface spray or similar.

Kitchen + laundry room:
clean bench tops,
wipe and dry external cupboard doors and handles,
clean range hood and stove top, including the elements (gas stove),
sink and taps clean and shine,
Clean back tiles all around bench tops,
clean and shine the laundry sink.
Tiled floor in kitchen and laundry washed (use floor soap, rinse and make sure it is left just a bit damp but not heavily wet) - there might be a bit of fluff where the washing machine used to stand (however we used to move the machine and clean this area once a year, so not having like years of dirt there).

Also wash tiles in entrance and stairs to garage level (about 15 stairs).

Living room and dining area:
clean the light switches,
Living room will have only 1 bookcase with some books, so some dusting here. Otherwise these rooms are empty from any other furniture. Nothing to move around.

There are 2 bathrooms + 1 guest toilets to be FULLY cleaned:
Shower - wall tiles, screens and their tracks, top of screens, shower floor/recess, waste area, taps and shower head,
Bathtub and its taps,
sinks, sinks' vanity bench tops and cabinet from the outside,
towel rails and toilet rolls rails wiped,
toilets cleaned inside and out, behind the toilet bowl, and clean the cistern,
3 Mirrors cleaned in the 2.5 bathrooms,
All floors washed.
In total there is in the house 1 bathtub, 2 showers, 3 toilets, 3 sinks (beside the kitchen sink), and 3 vanities with granite bench tops.

All cleaning needs to use Jif or Ajax or Gumption. Don't like just a damp cloth, or Enyo or any of those enviro solutions that don't kill any bacteria and just leave artificial smell that disappears in seconds and doesn't last.

I am happy to supply you with Jif , surface spray and glass spray if it helps your quote. I also have a vacuum machine which is reasonably ok, but if you have a commercial strong one then this would probably be better.

It is not an end of lease cleaning as we are NOT asking for cleaning inside of ovens, or cupboards or cleaning of blinds or glass windows etc. Just the usual weekly clean we used to do (and it is even easier now without the furniture and dusting).

I had this place regularly cleaned (for a couple of years up till now) in this same manner (even more, as it used to have furniture in the house that were dusted, which you will NOT need to do), but unfortunately we need this clean now on a different day than our usual day, and our regular cleaners cannot do Fridays so we are looking for this quote. I will be looking for something similar to what I used to pay, and expect this clean should not be more than 2.5-3 hours for one person. I am happy for 2 people to take this on (in fact prefer it) so it will take shorter time, and will pay by the person (so same as if one person was doing double the time).

I need it done in the morning and finished as early as possible.

If we are happy with the clean we will look for someone on a regular fortnightly service, however that will be in a different house and suburb (Gordon), which is an area our current cleaners don't do.
(We will of course ask for another quote for that, as it is a different house. But lets see first that we like the quality).

Thank you.
