How often should you have your home cleaned?

Most professional cleaning services will provide just about any frequency desired – weekly, biweekly, monthly, and we even have some clients who opt for every 3 weeks.

A good place to start is by asking yourself  how long you can go between cleanings without  feeling  like your home is really dirty.  Some people can go monthly if they are very neat and  tidy and have no pets or kids, and  others will get very uncomfortable indeed.

The Most Popular Option

Most of our clients request biweekly cleanings, and that is a good place to start for most people.

Frequency Affects Price

Most cleaning services vary in price with the frequency of service performed.  Weekly or biweekly cleaning will cost less than every 3 weeks or monthly.   Pricing will also be determined by the level of service and attention to detail that you request.

Maintaining the Clean

Once your home is cleaned by a professional service, maintenance takes a few minutes a day. Simple steps such as sweeping your kitchen,  putting dirty dishes away every day, and quickly vacuuming will extend the benefits of your newly clean home.  Making your bed every day insures that things will look neat and organized too.

A Clean Home Leads to Family Harmony

Take a look at what other family members do to contribute – are they contributing to the mess… or the cleanup?  If nagging about cleaning tasks is having a  negative impact on your marriage and family,  know that hiring a professional cleaning service contributes much  to harmony and happiness in the home!  And that could be priceless!

A good cleaning service should be able to walk you through the process and  ask the right questions to get you set up with the best  possible schedule for you.
