What To Expect From A Home Cleaning Service

Looking to hire a Cleaner for your house?

Services covered for Home cleaning depend on the extent of the cleaning job and any special or additional cleaning services. Here’s some helpful information on general house cleaning services.

A standard or general clean involves cleaning the surfaces in all the rooms of your house. This means wiping or dusting all the bench and table surfaces and sweeping, mopping or vacuuming all the floors.

A standard clean doesn’t cover every service. The following services are generally covered with a standard clean:

• Thorough cleaning of kitchens and bathrooms
• Vacuuming throughout the house
• Mopping
• Making beds
• Dusting all surfaces, including baseboards and light fixtures

More detailed cleaning often referred to as ‘deep cleaning’ is an additional service.  These additional services usually involve an additional cost, such as cleaning the oven or refrigerator, windows, inside of china cabinets, leather furniture, or spot-cleaning carpets or rugs.

A deep cleaning is recommended to new clients who have never had a full-service clean of their home. It is also a good idea to have a deep clean if you’re moving, preparing for the holidays or planning a special event.

When looking for a cleaner, confirm that the company is appropriately licensed, insured and bonded. Check their reputation on a trusted online review site or ask for and contact references. Ask for a quote and extra charges involved if you require special cleans. Most cleaners will offer a list of services covered in their cleaning services to help their clients understand exactly what they are receiving.
