What is Deep Cleaning, aka Spring Cleaning?

Cleaner Cleans Burners on StoveDeep cleaning refers to going beyond the standard regular cleaning you would do during your weekly house cleaning. When you do deep cleaning, you may desire a checklist for each room to make sure you cover all the extra items that are separate from your regular cleaning chores

When doing a deep clean, you will want to focus on these rooms:

  • Kitchen
  • Bathroom
  • Living room
  • Bedroom

You will want to clean behind and under every item in every room, pay close attention to baseboards and window treatments, and more. In addition, you will want to ensure you are deep cleaning the grout and tile in your bathroom and kitchen. Many people use a cleaning service for their deep cleaning, even if they do not use cleaning services for their regular cleaning.

Deep cleaning is sometimes referred to as spring cleaning because people like to have it done at least once a year and select to do it seasonally. It can be done any time of year, not only in the spring. Some people choose to have it done before important events or holidays. Once you have had a deep clean, it is important to maintain your regular cleaning to keep your house sparkling!

Why is “Initial Deep Cleaning” Recommended for First Time Clients?

Cleaner Deep Cleans Refrigerator We always recommend an initial deep cleaning for our first-time clients because many people need help understanding the difference a professional house cleaning can bring to their home. Once a thorough deep cleaning has been done, a scheduled regular cleaning, whether weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, will maintain the hygienic, comprehensive clean that you will come to expect from your regular cleaning.

Can I Skip My Weekly, Bi-Weekly, Or Monthly Cleaning?

If you are set up to have regular cleaning services, you may cancel or reschedule your cleaning for any reason if you call us at least 24 hours in advance. The number is (206) 673-2282. We will resume your regular cleaning on the next scheduled cleaning date.

Can I Get a Morning or Afternoon Schedule?

Yes! One of the things that we take great pride in is our ability to be flexible. Therefore, after our initial discussion with you, we will match you with a house cleaning specialist that will best match your needs. We will then contact you with a range of dates and times for your regular cleaning to see which will work best with your schedule.

How Many Hours Will the Cleaning Take?

If you have signed up for a particular cleaning service, such as a deep cleaning, move-in or move-out cleaning, or post-construction cleaning, these options can take longer due to the special nature of the services and dedication to detail.

When it comes to regularly scheduled house cleanings, the first clean may take longer than usual due to the cleaning service needing to get your home into our “standard of clean” condition – sparkling and hygienic! After that, the timing of your regular cleaning should be consistent as your cleaning service maintains your home.

Regularly scheduled house cleanings are usually set up for:

  • Weekly
  • Bi-weekly
  • Monthly

Can I Trust the Cleaning Technician?

Everyone in our cleaning service has been vetted and is a house-cleaning professional. Before anyone enters your home, we will give you background information on them and their experience. You will have the option to say whether you are comfortable with our selection before they are even scheduled. Additionally, we are insured in case an accident happens – if any damage occurs in your home, the item will be replaced or repaired.

Will the Same Cleaner Come Every Time?

Once we have reviewed your needs, we will look for a house cleaner that matches your requirements and then call you and discuss their experience and information. If you agree that they seem the perfect match, they will handle your cleaning service every time.

Do I Have to Stay Home While a Cleaning Service Cleans?

No requirement says to have a professional house cleaning seattle that you must stay home when the cleaning service arrives. However, if you believe that you will not be home when the cleaning service is scheduled to come to your house, please alert us, and we can arrange for your cleaner to gain access to your home in whatever way works best for you. 

What Situations Will Prevent The Cleaner From Cleaning My Home?

Our house cleaning professionals are, of course, humans. Therefore, anything that might keep regular people from attending work (natural disasters, snow, sickness) would extend to our team. Additionally, if we find that your house is inhospitable (illness, bug-infested), they may choose not to enter your home for their own safety. 

There are some things that house cleaners are not supposed to clean, traditionally, either by your choice or theirs. This would include irreplaceable antiques, collectibles, bodily fluids, and pet waste.

Are Your Prices Negotiable?

Do You Work During Weekends?

When we discuss your needs during your initial consultation call, this is one of the things that you can list that you want. In addition, we partner with vetted house cleaning specialists directly in your area, which gives us more flexibility to accommodate your schedule, even on weekends.
