Choosing The Right Cleaning Services

by Tracy Finke

Finding the perfect cleaning service for your needs can be challenging. What services are available to you? And how do you go about customizing these services to ensure they are the perfect match for your cleaning needs.

Well, most good quality companies will offer flexible services that can be customized to suit your needs. Many are also flexible with the times and days that they clean too.

So, a good quality company will offer flexible services, but what about different types of services? Which type is right for you? Well, here’s a quick breakdown of some services to help you understand which one is right for you. Sadly, not all companies offer them, but hopefully, you can find a reliable and trustworthy business in your area that does offer these services.

The Different Types Of Cleaning Services

1. Regular Domestic Cleaning Services

These services are the ones that most of us think of. These help you do the tasks in your home that you don’t have time to do. So a cleaner will come to your home once a week, fortnightly or once a month, and hoover, dust, mopped and more. This service is perfect for a helping hand with daily routine. Usually, a cleaner will be in your home for a few hours during these sessions. If you feel you need more assistance, perhaps choose a different service from the list below.

2. Housekeeping Services

A housekeeper does the same tasks as a regular domestic cleaner but can provide more time and do additional cleaning tasks as well as other daily chores for you as well. So, some housekeepers can keep on top of all of your cleaning duties as well as do some basic shopping for you and even take your kids to school. Housekeepers spend more time in your home.

They could be cleaning your home for six hours a week, or you could hire a full-time housekeeper to help you manage the daily chores around your home. If you need more help than a regular domestic cleaner can offer, a housekeeper could be the way to go.

3. Deep Cleaning Services

Now, a deep clean is a perfect way to get your home looking and feeling like your home once again. Think of a deep clean like an all-year-round spring clean. A team comes to your home and clean every inch of it. From the ceilings to the skirting boards and your carpets and wooden floors too.

Your entire home will be cleaned, including cabinets, wardrobes and a great deal more. If you haven’t had time to clean in a while, deep cleans are the perfect jumping-off point. From there, a regular house cleaner can keep on top of your cleaning tasks for you.

4. Antiviral Disinfection

These services are ideal for making your home safe for your family. They involve spraying an antiviral disinfectant out of a fogging machine and coating every surface in your home with the cleaning solution. This will kill all the bacteria and viruses in your home and leave a layer of protection over everything. So, if your family suffers from allergies, or you want to prevent them from getting ill, antiviral disinfection are a great choice.

5. After Building Cleaning Services

We all know that building work around the home creates a lot of dust, and that dust gets everywhere. While most builders try to be careful and clean up the dust as they go, it is very likely that dust will cover your home during building work. So, these services get rid of all this dust and grime from every surface of your home.

While they do focus their attention on the rooms where the building work took place, these services will go through the whole house and ensure it is perfectly cleaned. If you’d had building work to turn your house into a property your family will love, these services are the perfect way to finish the project.

6. Carpet And Upholstery Cleaning

We all know how dirty carpets, sofas and curtains can get, especially with kids and pets running around. So, carpet and upholstery cleaning services can be used to make your soft furnishings look new again. You’ll be amazed at how much dirt a carpet can hold and how different it will look once the carpet has been cleaned. You only need to lift your sofa up to see the color difference in your carpet; you’ll quickly be looking for carpet and upholstery cleaning services if you do.

7. Ironing Services

Hiring a professional to do your ironing is such a time saver. These masters of the iron make this very boring and difficult task look so easy and simple. Whether you have an important date, dinner or interview and you want to look the best, or you simply hate ironing, this is a fantastic service to use every week.

Some cleaners provide ironing services as part of their regular cleaning services, but this can take them away from other cleaning tasks. So it may be better to hire a cleaner and a professional ironing service. That way both your home and your clothes are perfect for you.

8. Eco-Friendly Cleaning Services

Now, most of the services above can be done with eco-friendly cleaning products. You just have to ask the cleaning company who is doing the work. Some businesses will use the chemicals you supply them with, so you can make sure that everything they need is eco-friendly.

However, if they are supplying the cleaning products, ask them if they can use only environmentally friendly products. There are loads of commercial-grade cleaning products on the market that are environmentally friendly, so companies should be able to provide them.


Finding the perfect cleaning services for your needs is a great way of ensuring your home is as clean, safe and tidy as you want it to be. We hope this look has helped you find the perfect one for your home!
