No worries, we'll tell you our trade secrets for removal...
For hard water spots on Chrome faucets in the shower, just take ZUD (which is a jeweler's grade pumice) and a damp cloth. Sprinkle a little ZUD on the cloth and gently rub those spots away. Rinse and dry. You may need to cover parts of it more than once for best results. Do not use on Brushed Nickle or Brass though.
If your Brushed Nickle is looking strange or spotty, just take some Weiman's polish and coat the whole tap, including the handles, for an even shine.
I tend to freak out a bit whenever I hear of people using Vinegar or Windex on their expensive stainless steel appliances to clean them. Here is a guide to the proper care of your stainless steel appliances: Never use Vinegar. The acidic nature of Vinegar can damage the surface. Avoid using Windex as the ammonia in Windex may also cause damage. Never use bleach as it may pit the surface.
Other products and chemicals to avoid are:
The best way to clean the fridge is just with a damp cloth, (we use microfibre cloths). Dry the surface with another soft cloth, and you are ready to polish. We use Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish to shine and protect the surface. To apply have an old hand towel ready for buffing , we fold the towel for use. The trick is to buff up the polish very quickly after it is applied. Spray the appliance with the polish and quickly spread the product evenly over the appliance with one side of the folded towel. Then flip over the towel and buff the surface to an even shine.
For Rust Stains you may want to purchase a product called Innoshine Rust Remover B570 . Follow the directions and always rub with the grain of the metal. Available at Amazon.com

Two ladies will arrive carrying many supplies. If this is your very first cleaning day, the owner will be there as well, to field any questions they may have, and advise on problem areas of the home, such as septic systems and proper disposal of waste water containing detergents, outside.They will have a professional maid's caddy, mop, bucket, bag of clean folded cloths, tri-star vacuum and attachments, and any other necessary products specific to your home.
Once they are all inside, they will start timing themselves. They know how much time is allotted and the start and finish time will be calculated.If you are home, they will greet you happily and then proceed to clean the bottoms of their shoes with Lysol Wipes in order to protect your home from any outside germs.
One lady will start vacuuming while the other lady begins wiping and dusting or cleaning the kitchen. This will depend on the layout of your home and the best approach, as they will want to avoid crowding each other. The second girl may start vacuuming upstairs or at the other end of the house.
They will pass in the hall and the first lady will move on to cleaning the bathrooms. When that is done she will continue wiping and dusting as needed.The lady on vacuuming will do the mopping and having finished that, she will replace mats and help finish the dusting.By this time the mop, bucket, vacuum and other things will have been brought back to the entrance. Both girls will finish up and if you are home, they will bid you good bye and take everything and leave.
If you are not home, they will set the alarm if needed, lock up and check the door to ensure that is has locked. They will call in any problems they have encountered, such as leaking plumbing so that you can be notified immediately. We have saved a few clients from potential disaster over the years.
