Let Someone Else Be Cinderella: Hire A House Cleaning Company

Posted on

Sometimes life can get a little busy and you do not have the time to do everything on your checklist. Cleaning your house may have to go by the wayside. What you may not realize is that you do not have to always pick and choose your priorities. If you do not have time to clean your home, you can always hire a cleaning service to do it for you.

There are many different companies out there that offer cleaning services, with many different cleaning options to choose from. Most companies let you choose what kind of cleaning you want to have done to your home. Here is a look at your options.

Deep clean:

A deep clean is where you get the works done to your home. All the floors are mopped and vacuumed. The appliances, counter-tops, sinks, and mirrors in the bathroom and kitchen are all wiped down. Doors, baseboards, and blinds are scrubbed. Even possessions on your shelves are dusted off. Every nook and cranny is cleaned.

A lot of people choose to have this cleaning option done once a month, or once every couple of months. Many customers also choose this before a big event, like a party or a wedding. Some choose it as a one time option for when they want to sell the houset.

Basic clean:

A basic clean is more surface level. The big items and the main spots in the house are given attention, but not every little thing is taken care of. Shelves will be dusted, floors vacuumed, and counters cleaned. With a basic clean, nothing is really given close, special, detailed attention, like in the deep clean.

Cleaning schedule

Once you know the type of cleaning you want, detailed or basic, you will choose a schedule for cleaning.

1. You can choose to have your entire house cleaned every time the cleaners comes.

2. You can choose to have your house cleaned on a rotating schedule. With a rotating schedule a different part of the house is cleaned each time the cleaners come. One week they may do all the bedrooms and the next they may do the kitchen, living room, and bathrooms.

You can also choose how often you want the cleaning company to send someone out. Most companies offer weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly visits. You can also choose to just have your home cleaned every now and then, or even just once. The choice is up to you.


Most companies will charge you based on how long it will take to clean your home. Obviously if you choose to do a deep clean, it will take longer, thus you will pay more. The first visit out to your home usually is the most expensive, because it is when the cleaners will have the most to clean. At this point they are not maintaining your residence, they are starting from scratch. The average cost of a monthly cleaning for a three bedroom home is $175.
