Standard Services Area House Cleaning Companies Offer

Each home is unique, and each house has its own cleaning requirements. That’s why housekeeping businesses offer such an array of services. Offerings differ from one-off in-depth cleanings or specialty cleanings to daily housekeeping. Knowing the sort of services available can assist you in finding a great company.

Everyday Cleaning Assistance

House cleaning businesses typically provide options to help you keep up with home cleaning on a regular schedule. You can hire cleaning professionals to come to your home once a week or a few times a week to do everyday cleaning chores such as:

  • Mopping, vacuuming, and sweeping
  • Wiping down or dusting counters and surfaces
  • Cleaning walls and windows
  • Sanitizing and cleaning sinks, toilets, and tubs

Many cleaning providers may even assist with tasks such as ironing or laundry.

In-Depth Cleaning Prior to the Holidays or Other Events

Some folks hire a housekeeping professional to prepare their residence or other areas prior to a monumental holiday, home sale, move, or event. As an example, you might hire a home cleaning service to clean your home subsequent to the arrival of holiday guests or to be certain your home looks its best before you place it for sale.

Deep cleaning services have a tendency reach past everyday activities. Professional cleaners can:

  • Move large appliances, including dishwashers and refrigerators, to clean the area behind them.
  • Clean the walls, windows, and baseboards.
  • Use a pressure washer on driveways or walkways.
  • Attend to particularly dirty spots that typical home cleaning might not catch.

Home Cleaning Services

Some housekeeping professionals also provide specialty services. This might include washing a home’s outside walls or cleaning up lawns, pools, or other components that aren’t part of the main residence.

Professional Cleaning Service

  • 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.
