The questions to ask about "deep cleans"

The average homeowner spends 12,896 hours of their lives cleaning their house. (Yuck.)

If you own your home for 30 years, you'll spend 430 hours a year on regular house cleaning. That averages out to 8 1/4 hours a week. How in the world can a cleaning service do that much cleaning in 4-5 hours?

A professional cleaner has the experience to differentiate deep cleaning vs regular cleaning house work. Don't you wish you could streamline your routine cleaning tasks and save that kind of time on your own?

How can you determine whether you need a regular or deep house cleaning? When is it necessary to call a cleaning service — and when can you do basic cleaning yourself?

In this article, you'll learn the difference between a deep clean and standard cleaning tasks. You'll also know precisely when to call a deep cleaning service, and when to keep that money in your pocket.

If you can't fully answer the “deep cleaning vs standard cleaning” question on your own, you aren't alone. These 8 home cleaning stats reveal that many Americans don't have their general cleaning facts straight, either. Here's the stats for homeowners: 

  1. 34% aren't sure they clean their homes enough. [1]
  2. 31%  don't know how to give their home a basic cleaning. [2]
  3. Only 45% regularly clean their door knobs, faucets? 70%. [3]
  4. The average American spends 77 weeks of their life cleaning. [4]

What House Chores are Part of Regular Cleaning?

A couple is cleaning their living room and doing chores. The man is dusting, and the woman is vacuuming. The room has a herringbone wood floor and painted white brick walls.

Regular cleaning focuses on day-to-day upkeep and maintenance. It involves routine tasks such as dusting, sweeping, mopping, and wiping surfaces to maintain a basic level of cleanliness. Don't over-do it!

Regular cleans are important for preventing the accumulation of dirt and maintaining a tidy environment. They are typically performed on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, depending on individual needs and preferences.

These 10 cleaning tasks are part of a standard weekly home cleaning routine:

  1. Dust all surfaces
  2. Take all towels and bedding to the laundry room 
  3. Wipe down all high-touch areas in the kitchen
  4. Wipe down all high-touch areas in the bathroom
  5. Scrub sinks, tubs and toilets
  6. Wipe down appliances
  7. Vacuum rugs and carpets
  8. Sweep and mop hardwood floors
  9. Spot clean mirrors
  10. Spot check your home's air filters and replace if necessary

Establish a simple schedule of light cleaning tasks to keep your house cleaner with less effort. Try to service areas you use on a regular basis, like the kitchen and bathroom.

When Do I Need to Deep Clean My Home?

Deep cleaning goes beyond the surface-level dusting and vacuuming of a regular clean. It involves tackling hidden dirt, grime, and buildup in hard-to-reach areas. 

Deep cleans typically involve cleaning tasks such as scrubbing baseboards, degreasing kitchen appliances, descaling bathroom fixtures, and steam cleaning carpets. This intensive cleaning process rejuvenates the entire home, ensuring a fresh and sanitary living space.

Not all deep cleaning jobs are the same. But these 10 cleaning tasks should be part of all regular deep cleaning routines:

  1. Dust every room from top to bottom (start with ceiling fan units and work down)
  2. Sweep, mop and vacuum the floors
  3. Clean around, inside and under every home appliance
  4. Clean, disinfect and polish faucets, sinks, showers, tubs and toilets
  5. Launder and replace all home linens, bedding, and upholstery
  6. Move all furniture and clean underneath
  7. Wipe down and wash all windows, window frames and window sills
  8. Wipe down and sanitize all baseboards, crown molding and light switches
  9. Wash and clean out all garbage cans and garbage disposal units
  10. Shampoo all rugs and conduct thorough carpet cleaning

The 4 Best Times to Call a Deep Cleaning Service

While regular cleans are essential for day-to-day maintenance, there are certain situations when calling a professional cleaning service for a deep clean becomes necessary. 

Here are the 4 best times to schedule a thorough cleaning with a professional cleaning company:

Moving In or Moving Out: When transitioning into a new home or preparing to leave a current one, a deep clean is highly recommended. It ensures that the space is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, providing a fresh start for the new occupants or ensuring a smooth transition for the next residents.

When moving into a new home, give high-touch materials a fresh start. Ask for tile and carpet cleaning, as well as a thorough upholstery cleaning on seats and couches. 

Post-Remodel or Renovation: With home prices on the rise, many homeowners are investing in their houses with remodeling and renovation projects. After a remodeling job, post construction cleaning eliminates the dust, debris, and construction residue. All that's left is the home you dreamed of at the start of your renovation project.

Post construction cleaning eliminates leftover dust and debris from your living space. You may also want to review any duct work to see if air duct cleaning is necessary.

Spring Cleaning: Embrace the warm weather with a thorough spring cleaning. Whether you're preparing for the scorching  summer or breaking free from the winter, deep cleaning tasks like window washing, upholstery cleaning, and decluttering storage areas help you transition seamlessly.

Occasional Intensive Cleaning: Occasional deep cleans can restore your home's sparkle after parties or events. They can also be beneficial for special occasions or when you feel your home needs a thorough overhaul.
