What do house cleaning services include?

If you’re interested in house cleaning services but aren’t sure what these cleaning services include, you’re in luck. Today, we’re breaking down house cleaning services and exactly what each of them may include. Remember, though, different house cleaners offer different services, and some provide more cleaning services than others. So, try to choose a cleaning company that can provide all of the cleaning services that you need, so you can rely on a cleaner you trust to do all of the cleaning you need them to do.
House cleaning services

There are many different cleaning services for the home. Choosing the right one ensures you get the results you want. Many cleaning companies offer several different house cleaning services, but some only offer standard cleaning. Some house cleaning services include:

Regular house cleaning

This is the cleaning service that most of us think of when it comes to house cleaning. Typically, a cleaner will come to your home for one-two hours once a week or every fortnight. During their time in your home, a cleaner can complete various everyday cleaning tasks, including:

  • Hoovering without moving furniture
  • Mopping floors
  • Making beds
  • Cleaning the bathroom
  • Dusting all surfaces
  • Washing up and a general cleaning of the kitchen

This is what a cleaner can do within a two-hour time slot in your home. Of course, the cleaning tasks you ask the cleaner to do can vary week to week depending on the cleaning tasks you have time to do. If you don’t have any time to do any of the cleaning, stick around, as there is another cleaning service that can help you.

Deep cleans

Next up, we have deep cleans. This is a complete and thorough clean of your entire home. From the skirting boards to your kitchen cabinets, every inch of every room will be cleaned to perfection. This is the perfect cleaning service to take advantage of if you haven’t had time to clean in a while or you want to start afresh when you move into a new home. You can even include carpet and oven cleaning services in a lot of deep cleans, so they are ideal if you want to wipe the slate clean.

Carpet Cleaning

Almost every regular house cleaning service includes hoovering. And if you want a cleaner to just focus on hoovering on a particular day, some will even move the furniture and do a very good job of getting rid of any dust and grime on your carpet.

However, to make your carpets look new again, you’ll need carpet cleaning services. This is done with a carpet shampooing machine, so it can’t be offered as standard with the usual cleaning service. The machine will force shampoo deep into the pile of the carpet and then use brushes and high-velocity air to suck up all the dirt and grime from your carpets. Carpet cleaning can make your carpets look and smell brand new. Plus, it can even get rid of stains in the carpet, no matter how old.

While any cleaning company worth their salt will offer these services, they are typically not offered as standard with any other cleaning services, even deep cleans, but are offered as optional extras.

Ironing services

A lot of cleaning companies also offer additional ironing services alongside regular cleaning. While a regular cleaner is usually trained and happy to do the ironing for you, it may not be the best use of their time. Ironing, as I’m sure you know, takes a good amount of time to do, and for your regular cleaner, this is time taken away from cleaning the rest of your home.

So, you can choose to have additional ironing services or just ironing services if that is all you need. Depending on the company you use, someone will either come to your home or do all of the ironing you need in your home. Or other companies take your pile of wrinkly clothes away and deliver fresh, folded clothes back to you.

Housekeeping services

Lastly, we have housekeeping services, which almost encompasses all of the cleaning services we have spoken about here. A housekeeper is with you for a lot longer than a regular cleaner can be. After all, a regular cleaner has a lot of appointments each day. A housekeeper can be with you full time if you need them to be. Or they can be cleaning your home for one day a week, for example, whatever works best for you.

A housekeeper can do all of the regular cleaning tasks we’ve spoken about in this article. They can also do ironing, washing, changing beds and a great deal more. If you have no time to clean at all, a housekeeper could be the way to go. They can do all weekly cleaning chores for you, and many offer even more services like picking up food shopping and even taking your kids to school.

So, there are some of the house cleaning services that you can choose from. Choosing the right cleaning company is really important, as this allows you to take advantage of all of the cleaning services they can offer, but that is a topic for a different cleaning article.
