Regular Cleaning or Deep Cleaning: What’s the Difference?

Not sure whether your home needs regular cleaning or deep cleaning services? In this article Clean Pillar Maid Services discusses what each type of cleaning involves so you can make the best cleaning decision for your home.

To help you decide if you need regular cleaning or a deep cleaning to get back on track, take a tour of your home. Look everywhere – in corners, under the sink, inside the oven, at the windows, etc. If you’re happy with the general cleanliness of your home but need some help maintaining it, then regular cleaning service is right for you. But if you spot grease buildup, cobwebs in the corners, and lots of grime or dirt, then it’s time for a deep cleaning.

(Note: we wrote an article about when to hire a professional cleaning service that can help you decide if it’s time for some extra cleaning help).

Here’s what you can expect from each service

Regular Cleaning Service

Regular cleaning is what most people do on a weekly basis or hire a professional cleaner to do every few weeks or once a month. The purpose of regular residential cleaning is to maintain the beauty, comfort and health of your home. It often includes cleaning services like:

  • Cleaning standard rooms (bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms)
  • Mopping the floors
  • Sweeping and vacuuming open areas
  • Wiping down exposed surfaces
  • Dusting exposed services

If you are diligent about keeping a clean home but need some extra help, you’ll probably want to hire a professional cleaning service for regular cleaning work. A quality regular cleaning service will typically come to your home once a week or several times a month depending on its size and your needs. Regular cleaning is also more affordable than you might think. Get in touch with several cleaning services to compare rates.

Deep Cleaning Service

A deep, on the other hand, is ideal for people who haven’t cleaned in a while and need to refresh their home before beginning a regular cleaning regimen. Deep cleaning covers areas that aren’t usually covered by standard cleaning services. These include:

  • Behind big kitchen appliances (washing machine, oven, and refrigerator)
  • Under the sinks (kitchen and bathrooms)
  • Oven interior (including the glass door)
  • Inside the window frames and patio doors
  • Inside and outside the windows, including blinds
  • Complete dusting of all corners and hidden surfaces
  • De-scaling bathroom tiles, taps, faucets, shower heads, etc.
  • Basements and attics (talk to your cleaning professional about this)

You may also want to consider a deep cleaning service under special circumstances. Things like post-construction cleanup, move-in or move-out cleaning, cleaning for special events and spring cleaning are all good cases for a deep cleaning.
