Which Services Do Home Cleaning Companies Offer

Businesses that clean homes provide a wide range of services, from deep cleaning to daily cleaning. The kind of service that’s ideal for you largely depends on why you’re looking to hire a cleaning professional in the first place.

Daily House Cleaning Help

Cleaning services often provide options to help you keep up with housekeeping on a daily schedule. You can schedule housekeepers to visit your home weekly or several times a week to handle basic housekeeping tasks including:

  • Vacuuming, mopping, and sweeping floors
  • Dusting or wiping down surfaces and countertops
  • Cleaning windows and walls
  • Sanitizing and cleaning toilets, sinks, and tubs

Some cleaning providers may also help with jobs such as laundry or ironing.

Deep Cleaning Prior to a Party or Get-Together

Some folks hire a housekeeping professional to prep their house or other areas before an important holiday, home sale, move, or event. For example, you may hire a housekeeping service to deep clean your home subsequent to the arrival of Thanksgiving guests or to be certain it looks its best before you list it with a real estate agent.

Deep housekeeping services tend to reach past everyday activities. Cleaning personnel might:

  • Pull out appliances, including dishwashers and refrigerators, to clean behind them.
  • Clean the baseboards, walls, and windows.
  • Use a pressure washer on walkways or driveways.
  • Take care of particularly dirty spots that general housekeeping might miss.

Cleaning Services

Most home cleaning companies also offer specialty services. This may include washing a home’s siding or cleaning yards, pools, or other structures that aren’t included in the actual home.

Average Prices for Home Cleaning Services

How much you might pay for house cleaning services in Columbia is based on a variety of things, like the type of cleaning work you need completed and how much time the job might take. Cleaning work that needs more hours to complete or is more complex often comes at a higher cost.

The median expense of home cleaning services across the U.S. is $75 to $250 per session. Prices can range immensely depending on the level of housekeeping services you require. For instance, some cleaners also cook, go on errands, and wash and fold laundry, and you may pay more per hour for more involved services like these.

Housekeeping services that put an emphasis on basic cleaning tasks typically charge, on average, $125 to $240 per visit. The price almost always comes with basic day-to-day cleaning, such as cleaning bathrooms, wiping down surfaces, vacuuming, and mopping. Should you need a deep cleaning service, plan to pay $400 or more depending on the size of your home and how much you need cleaned.

In some cases, you can schedule specialty cleaning. For example, many pro cleaners offer gutter cleaning, with rates starting around $160, on average. Other cleaners may pressure wash siding on a home’s exterior; costs for that kind of job runs about $280.

  • Keeping your home clean is a task that never seems to end, and it can take up most of your free time. Instead of spending your weekends mopping and dusting, consider hiring a housekeeper or cleaning service.
  • Unless a housekeeper performs specific duties regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency or your state or local government, no specific licensing is usually required to become a housekeeper. However, you’ll want to work with a professional who can pass a background check and has a current business license, liability insurance and a surety bond. You’ll also want to select someone who has the experience and can provide references, or someone who has received some professional training from a cleaning company.
  • Keep in mind when hiring any type of professional to clean your home that each state has its own requirements for licensing. You can use Home Advisor’s Contractor Licensing Requirements State-By-State guide to learn more. You can also learn more about the extensive screening process we use when allowing businesses to join our network.

When you hire a housekeeper or cleaning service, there are some questions you’ll need to ask to ensure you’re hiring the right person for the job. Writing down a list of services you want to be completed is a great place to start. This way, you’ll have all the information you need when you do interview a housekeeper or cleaning service, and they can provide you with accurate information and cost estimates.

What Services Do You Offer?

Find out upfront if the housekeeper or cleaning company offers the services you need, especially if you have requests that go beyond basic services.

How Do You Come Up With Your Rates?

Do they charge a flat fee each week? Do they charge an hourly rate? Some companies charge based on your home’s square footage or the number of bedrooms you have.

Do You Provide Your Own Supplies?

Many companies may provide some smaller cleaning supplies, but they may need to use your vacuum cleaner or mop. Others bring their own or none at all. And if you’re particular about the types of chemicals used in your home, you may want to ask what products they use or if they’re willing to use what you provide.

What Happens if Something Goes Wrong?

Anytime you have a professional in your home, something could go wrong. They could get hurt, or some of your property may be damaged. Ask what would happen in these scenarios — a well-qualified professional will have the necessary insurance and bonding to cover these situations.
