If I had to rank customer questions, “How often should I have you clean?” would easily make the top 5.

Sponge & Sparkle - Atlanta's Award Winning Cleaning Experts

Like most professional cleaning services, we are flexible: we will provide just about any frequency desired – weekly, bi-weekly, monthly. We even have some clients who opt for every 3 weeks.

Here are a few considerations:

What is the most popular option?

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

Here are a few reviews from our bi-weekly clients.

I Love to Come Home

My daughters says it best … I love to come home every other Wednesday! S & C do a wonderful job on our home and treat our things like they were their own. Mary (link to full review)

Friendly, Professional, Trustworthy (15-year client)

I have been a client of Sponge & Sparkle for almost 15 years. They do an outstanding job, have wonderful customer service and a very friendly and professional crew. They also are extremely trustworthy (they’ve had the key to my home since the beginning). I can highly recommend the company!  Jennifer’s full review

I Could Not be Happier

I could not be happier. I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve been able to have the same S&S person clean my home every 2 weeks. I think we’re going on nearly 2 years now. I feel I have the best of two worlds; my “own cleaning person” and the support of a small business/business owner with long term success who is professional and highly responsive to client needs. Thank you Shirley and the S&S team for keeping us clean! Judith and Charlie dog

How long can I stand it?

Ask 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.

How will I maintain 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.

What is my budget?

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.

What is my family’s harmony worth?

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.
