What should I expect from a general cleaning service package?

We can all agree that when you hire a service to be done you want to feel like you got what you pay for! Hiring a professional house cleaning service in the Kernersville area is no different. In a previous article we discussed how much a professional house cleaning service should charge to get a better understanding of how the industry would price professional cleaning services.

In this article we are going to focus on what types of services you can expect from a professional house cleaning company.

Price vs. Expectations

One of the best ways to make sure that the price that you paid, for professional house cleaning services, matches the expectation you have; is to understand what you’re paying for. Asking questions and becoming informed about the process that the professional house cleaning service employs will help keep both price and expectations in check.

For example: If you have asked for a simple light cleaning service package which would include such general cleaning as wiping down the counters in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room plus general vacuuming and mopping; don’t expect them to move the furniture during the vacuuming.

Again, learning about the services that you want and comparing them against your price expectations will help make sure that you come home to a thoroughly cleaned house at a price that you are comfortable with.

What Should I Expect from a General Cleaning Service Package?

General cleaning services take into account a professional level of cleaning that you might expect when hiring a professional house cleaning service to come in at least once every two weeks to your Kernersville area home. In a general cleaning service from a professional house cleaning you can expect the following:

Bedrooms

  • Dust all furniture (note: if the furniture has a lot of items positioned on them, dusting may not be as thorough as anticipated, we recommend storing these items prior to your cleaning)

  • Change linens if left out—old sheets should be removed.
  • Wipe blinds and sills as needed (generally does not include the washing of curtains)
  • Vacuum carpets (does not include moving furniture)
  • Picture class wiped down
  • Dust light fixtures/ ceiling fans
  • Empty trash (does not include the scrubbing of, or sanitation, of the trashcan itself.)

The Living Room/Dining Room

  • All furniture and what knots dusted (for homes with a lot of what knots/ knick-knacks/ collectibles - dusting will be done as best as can be without disturbing the items)
  • Wipe blinds and sills as needed
  • Dust pictures/lamp shades
  • Vacuum carpets (does not include moving furniture)
  • Dust light fixtures/ceiling fans
  • Empty trash (does not include the scrubbing of, or sanitation, of the trashcan itself.)

The Laundry Room

  • Wipe down washer/ dryer - sides as well if accessible
  • Sweep and mop floor (basement level/concrete floors will be mopped with a heavy detergent however, these nonporous services can still absorb and retain odors)
  • Empty trash (does not include the scrubbing of, or sanitation, of the trashcan itself.)

As you can see a lot goes into a general cleaning service by a professional house cleaning company. However, you can also see that there would be some items reserved for complete house deep cleaning, move-in/moveout cleaning services, construction cleanup or individualized room deep cleaning services.

The more you know about the professional house cleaning service and what to expect for the price, the more satisfied you will be with the results.
