House Cleaning: The Services Offered


Are you looking to hire someone to help you out around the house? Are there things that you can’t get to because you are working full time and just want to relax on your days off? It sounds like you need house cleaning services.

What Type of House Cleaning Do You Need?

If you’ve looked around your home recently, you may have noticed that there are a few things that are a bit neglected. The bathroom has built up toothpaste in the sink… The kitchen has coffee stains on the cabinets… And the living room has enough dust that you could write “For a good time, call…” on the entertainment center. If this is the case, any cleaning company will suggest scheduling a deep clean before a routine house cleaning.

What Cleaners Offer

Private and commercial cleaning companies provide services such as deep cleans and regular, or maintenance cleaning. If you prefer an individual compared to a company, they might request that you provide the supplies and equipment. Both can do a deep clean, but a company has more employees. This means that the prices will be different compared to a single housecleaner, but they’ll be finished with their job sooner. Every housecleaner is different so don’t be afraid to ask around!

Regular Cleanings

A regular house cleaning is simple, and it covers the basics of your home. This type of service is done on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. Along with cleaning all the rooms in your home, basics include:

-Vacuuming and Dusting

-Sweeping and Mopping


-Sinks, Tubs and Showers

-Inside of Microwave, and Stovetop

-Counters and Outside of Appliances

The only time any area of your home will not be cleaned is if you say otherwise.

Deep Cleans

These vary depending on how big your home is and what you need cleaned. In addition to the basics included in a regular cleaning, a deep clean should include the following:

-Cabinets; The door and the top

-Light Fixtures and Fans

-Doors and Door Handles

-Light Switches and Outlets


The inside of refrigerators, cabinets, and ovens cost extra and are available on request.

A deep clean typically takes a full day. The amount of time depends on how big the crew is. Since it does take longer than a regular house cleaning, prepare to be out of the house for the day. It’s better if you aren’t at the house unless you need to because the chemicals in the air can be harsh. Cleaners will open the doors and windows, if the weather permits.

Extra Services Provided Upon Request

While most people only need help with the basics, there are others who appreciate extra help, such as:

-Making beds


-Putting away dishes

-Window washing

Not everyone provides these extras so it’s a good idea to ask before you hire. Another thing to keep in mind is that what is offered during a deep clean is not always included in a regular house cleaning. A good rule of thumb is that if it cost extra during the deep clean then it will be extra in the regular cleaning.

Hopefully this has helped you to understand the services provided by your local cleaners! Thanks for reading!
