Weekly, Bi-weekly, or Monthly Cleaning

Weekly, bi-weekly,  or monthly cleaning? How often do you think you need professional cleaning performed? When viewing the descriptions of home cleaning services, its quite important to know the frequency of how often you will need these services. Actually you can easily determine the answer once you examine your habits and cleaning needs.

Generally speaking, if you find yourself cleaning quite often, and are usually consistent in your maintenance habits, then a monthly cleaning is probably best for you.

On the other hand, if you hate domestic duties (there’s nothing wrong with that!), prefer not to perform any household tasks, and probably either have a busy lifestyle or a lot of traffic in your home, then you should probably consider booking a weekly service.

As a third choice if you should fall somewhere in the middle of the previous two examples, its more than likely best for you to book bi-weekly cleaning (every two weeks).

Some benefits to having consistency in service are:

  • Reduces the likelihood of the spread of germs
  • Prices can be lower depending on the frequency of service
  • Decreases the frequency of necessary (and more costly) deep cleanings
  • Provides a more conistently clean environment
