Professional cleaning services are indispensable these days, saving us time and keeping our homes a sparkling sanctuary away from the everyday world. How often you schedule the services can vary greatly, depending on the size of your residence, whether you work from home, and how big your family is. For most homes, scheduling every other week could work, while for others it’s needed more frequently.
Consider Your Time
Begin with considering how often you clean your own home. Not just a quick straighten-up, but how often do you actually pull out the vacuum? How often do you polish your wood furniture? Do you deep-clean your bathroom frequently?
Consider others who live there, how often do you find yourself cleaning up after them, spending time that you could have been invested elsewhere? Is the burden of chores evenly distributed? Or does it fall solely on one person? For some households having a little help once a week or even a few times a week could be necessary, especially at busier times of the year, such as during the holidays.
Consider The Size of Your Home
Is your home large or small? Sometimes service with only one cleaning professional in the home at a time is efficient and sometimes there is a need for one or two more cleaners to be in your home simultaneously.
If your home is continuously more cluttered or dirty, you might also need more frequent cleaning.
Consider Your Budget
What is your budget? Most services vary in price according to how often you schedule them and depending on what services are provided. Pricing can be determined by the kind of service you want. When you speak to a professional cleaning service, be sure to include your expectations and how much you can budget for each visit.
Most professional cleaning services schedule regular visits, including weekly, bi-weekly, once a month, and sometimes every three to six weeks. The most common is every two weeks. If you spend a lot of time cleaning your home every week then it’s recommended that you schedule your cleaning service weekly.
So how often do you need a professional home cleaning? Take all the factors above into consideration, and contact the companies you’re interested in. A good cleaning service will take the time to talk you through the process and will tell you the right questions to ask if you don’t know.
Schedule your first cleaning, see how it fits into your lifestyle, and adjust accordingly.
