The Difference Between Regular & Deep Cleanings

The Difference Between Regular & Deep Cleanings

Before you hire a house cleaning service, it is a good idea to know about the difference between a regular cleaning and a deep cleaning. In general, most cleaning services will offer a wide variety of different services to cater to most situations. When you’re given all of these options, it can be hard to find out which one suits your cleaning needs best. Here at Dust Busters, we would like to go into detail about the differences between a regular cleaning and a deep cleaning so you can determine which service is best for your situation. 

Regular Cleaning 

A regular cleaning will more often than not involve an average person’s weekly cleaning tasks. This is considered a general cleaning — something that keeps the living/office space at a specific level of cleanliness.  

In most cases, a regular cleaning will cost you less than a deep cleaning. Seeing as a regular cleaning requires less work, however, you will need to maintain it with a schedule of some sort in order to keep your place looking clean. Depending on the maintenance your place needs, you can hire a regular cleaning as often as once every couple of weeks or once every month. This will all depend on a) what you want your place to look like and b) how messy your space gets overtime.  

What Does a Regular Cleaning Entail? 

Just because this cleaning is done for maintenance over everything else, does not mean that it is any less transformative than a deep cleaning. Important tasks will be handled properly and done to your utmost satisfaction. Some common tasks that take place in a regular cleaning involve: 

  • Floors are vacuumed and mopped 
  • Mold or mildew is removed from bathrooms 
  • Carpets and rugs are vacuumed 
  • High/low dusting including fans, light fixtures, ledges etc. 
  • Some inside windows/doors & mirrors are wiped down & cleaned 
  • Kitchen is fully cleaned including inside microwave 
  • Trash is taken out 
  • Surfaces are wiped down for dust 
  • Bathrooms are disinfected (on top of being cleaned) 
  • Light switches/doorknobs/thermostat sanitized  

Deep Cleaning 

A deep cleaning is different from a regular cleaning in its attention to detail. It’s immense focus on the ignored or hard to reach areas of your space is done to ensure a maximum level of cleanliness. If your home is full of mess but it’s high up off the ground, as long as it can be reached with a stool a deep cleaning will take care of it with no issue. If it is your first time hiring a cleaning service, it is highly recommended that you start by hiring a deep cleaning service and then following that deep clean with scheduled regular cleanings.  

*It is important to note that deep cleanings will take more time and cost more money than regular cleanings*
