We just used Domestica to do a deep clean in our Woodlawn home. My wife went in to hospital for a new hip, and came home to a house that was very clean. She was delighted! The process was straight forward.

The CDC recommends disinfecting and cleaning high-touch areas daily.

These areas include: Keyboards, phones, light switches, doorknobs, handles, counters, toilets and sinks using:
Clean the area first with any household cleaner before disinfecting.

PLEASE READ OUR LATEST POST for more tips to keep you and your household safe during this uncertain perios.


Use baking soda to sprinkle and cover the bottom of your oven. Spray the baking soda with water until very damp, and keep moist by spraying every few hours.

Leave overnight. In the morning, remove the baking soda and grime with a spatula. Rinse the oven well. Washing soda can be substituted for half the baking soda for really tough jobs but requires more rinsing and is caustic (wear gloves).

Note: Washing soda, made by Arm & Hammer, is found in the laundry detergent area of some grocery stores.


Pour one cup baking soda or 1/2 cup washing soda down the drain followed by three cups boiling water.


Many commercial window cleaners leave wax buildup. The first time you clean windows before using our recommended cleaner, you should wash them with a solution of 1/2 teaspoons vegetable-oil based soap (such as Dr. Bronner’s), 1/4 cup white distilled vinegar and two cups warm water in a labeled squirt bottle. Shake to blend, then spray on windows and wipe clean using a cotton diaper.*


For general cleaning, use soap-based, no-aerosol rug shampoo and vacuum when dry.

To neutralize carpet odors, sprinkle baking soda over entire carpet. Leave on overnight. Sweep off as much as you can, vacuum the rest.

Spills: Blot quickly with cotton towels. Club soda or clear water is effective on some stains, including alcoholic beverages, coffee, or tomato-based food. Pulverized chalk will absorb grease.

Urine: A solution of equal parts white vinegar and water may be sprayed or sponged onto the stain. Let stand for about 10 minutes before blotting with sponge or paper towel.


Squirt Domestica’s Tub & Tile Scrub onto the area and spread with a sponge. Let sit two hours or overnight and rinse.


Damp mop using one cup vinegar in two gallons warm water.


For unvarnished floors, damp mop using Domestica’s All-Purpose Cleaner. We recommend White Pine for a fresh, clean scent.

For varnished floors, damp mop using one part vinegar to 10 parts water.

Rub a small portion of Domestica’s Tub & Tile Scrub on the scuff mark using a white-backed scrubbee sponge and rinse well.

If the floor finish is removed, you may be able to restore it using 1/2 cup cornstarch and enough water to make a paste. Rub this mixture into the spot, let dry, then buff to a polish.

Source: The Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds.


For laundry, try: 1/2 cup 3 percent hydrogen peroxide or lemon juice added during the rinse cycle, or 1/2 cup washing soda added to warm- or hot-water wash cycles. Note: Washing soda, made by Arm & Hammer, is found in the laundry detergent area of some grocery stores.


Use natural acids such as vinegar and lemon juice to clean aluminum, bronze, brass and copper.

Combine three teaspoons salt, one tablespoon flour and enough white distilled vinegar to make a paste. Scoop paste onto a clean sponge and polish bronze, brass or copper. Rinse with hot water and buff dry with a soft cloth.

Rub white toothpaste into silver, and then polish with a soft, clean cloth. Apple cider vinegar may be used to clean chrome. Polish chrome using club soda.

We welcome your questions, comments and suggestions regarding our service and products.


Q: What areas do you serve?

A: We serve all neighborhoods in N, NW, NE, SW and SE Portland.

For one-time service outside of our normal service areas (Beaverton, Tigard, Milwaukie, Clackamas and Lake Oswego), please call our office at 503-222-2334 or email us at shannon@domesticaclean.com for a custom estimate and to schedule your appointment.

Q. Does Domestica supply all the necessary green cleaning supplies to get the job done?

A: Domestica provides all the equipment and supplies necessary for the job, including Domestica’s own line of non-toxic cleaning products and Miele H.E.P.A. filter vacuums.

(Please note: In the majority of all cleanings, we use environmentally-safe, non-toxic cleaning products.  However, at some first-time cleanings, stronger, traditional products may be necessary to remove excessive buildup or limescale. If you have any specific sensitivities or issues, please do not hesitate to let us know.)

Q: What if you stay longer than anticipated to finish the job?

A: Unlike many other services, Domestica has a service quote, not a time quote for our “Book Now” cleanings. This means this means that the cleaners will stay as long as they need to complete the cleaning at no additional cost under most circumstances.

All first-time and move-in/move-out cleaning rates are quoted for homes in normal condition that have been receiving general maintenance cleaning.

In situations where a home has been neglected for a long period of time – or in hoarding clean-up situations – rates will be increased for the first cleaning.

(Please note that per OSHA regulations, we are not able to handle any animal waste.)

Subsequent cleanings performed on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis will be at our regular, fixed rate.

Q: Do I have to be home while you clean?

A: You do not have to be home for your cleaning, in fact most of our clients prefer not to be.

If you will not be there to let the cleaner in, simply leave us detailed entry instructions when you schedule your appointment online so we know how to gain access to your home. Your home will be locked when the cleaner leaves.

For regular service, Domestica will keep a copy of your house key in our office. All keys are kept in locked security box, identifiable only by a key number and never kept with your address or any other identifiable information.

Q: Will the same cleaner show up for all my appointments?

A: We make every effort to send the same cleaning team every time. In the case vacation or illness, a replacement employee will be sent with your regular team member.


Q: Are you insured and bonded?

A: Yes, all Domestica employees are insured, bonded and covered by workers’ compensation insurance.

We treat your home with the same care as we would our own, and are always careful. In the unlikely event that an object is damaged, please notify us within 24 hours.

A: A move-in/move-out cleaning is a comprehensive, top-to-bottom cleaning which includes all the outward-facing details of the Deep Clean in addition to the insides of all appliances, cupboards and closets.

Q: Are your services guaranteed?

A: Absolutely! We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If for any reason you are not happy with your service, please contact our office within 24 hours of our visit and we will return to correct any oversight at no charge.

Q: Can I give special instructions to the cleaners and make special requests?

A: Yes, special instructions can be left for the cleaning professional when you schedule your appointment online. After the clean is complete, you can rate your Domestica experience and update your special instructions if you want something cleaned differently.

We will vacuum under all accessible furniture.
