“How deep is your deep home cleaning?” This was the third time Clara had received that question from a client during the course of the day (and it wasn’t even lunchtime, yet). It became fairly obvious this query needed to be addressed.
What is a deep clean? How deep is it? What’s the difference between a deep clean and normal cleaning? You’ll find the answers to these questions below. Let us begin, shall we?
This is a very logical question. After all, deep cleaning is a bit more expensive than normal one-off cleaning. It’s not like money grows on trees, so you want to know that you’ll be getting your money’s worth.
The best way I can describe deep cleaning is by calling it “cleaning on steroids”. Allow me to explain.
Whereas normal cleaning mostly deals with obvious areas (outside of kitchen cupboards, countertops, dusting, vacuuming, mopping, etc.), deep cleaning explores the forgotten depths of your home. This includes the inside of cupboards, inside of bathroom cabinets, emptying rubbish bins, etc.
Normal cleaning is more about giving the impression of a clean home. It’s still great, but if you try to inspect it in more detail, you see the level of depth simply isn’t there. That’s why this type of cleaning costs less.
Deep cleaning, on the other hand, is all about substance. The goal is to achieve a level of cleanliness that would impress even someone who is critical about this sort of thing. Think of it as “out-of-season spring cleaning“.
This is a straightforward question. Sadly, the answer never is. Since both normal and deep cleaning are timed services (meaning you pay for the amount of ours the cleaners spend on cleaning your home), the end result will also depend on how many hours you book.
Usually, our dear Clara can give you a pretty good estimation of how many hours you should book based on your property if you want to achieve the best results.
This estimation is based on the number of rooms, type of property (house or flat), the number of bathrooms, level of cleanliness (there is such a thing as “over dirty”, which costs extra to clean), etc.
For the best results, book as many hours as you can afford based on the estimation. You’re not booking deep cleaning every day, after all.
Because deep home cleaning deals with areas we rarely think about, it can be a great way to reduce different pathogens in the environment. For example, you’d rarely think about cleaning the inside of your cupboards (out of sight, out of mind), but they can be harbouring a whole host of germs and bacteria.
It can also improve indoor air quality. By getting rid of as much rubbish, dust, and grime as possible, a deep home cleaning can have a drastic effect on the indoor air quality. This is especially important if you or a family member suffers from asthma or dust allergies.
A deep clean every now and then can also keep pests away. One of the reasons you may have pests in your home is because crumbs and other food sources accumulate in out of sight areas. Deep cleaning addresses this problem.
While it’s a bit more expensive than normal one-off cleaning, deep cleaning is the way to go if you want to get the best quality one-off cleaning service. It goes way deeper than normal cleaning ever would and the difference in price isn’t even that high.
