Weekly, Bi-weekly or Monthly regular Service
Regular cleaning services includes on a weekly, bi-weekly, or once a month. The regular cleaning schedule is available only after an initial deep cleaning has taken place.
Why Would You Need A Deep Cleaning If You Are Signing Up For Weekly, Bi-Weekly, Or Once A Month Regular Cleaning?
Because if it's the first time we clean your home, we consider it a deep cleaning since we don't know what to expect or exactly how long it may take to provide the correct attention to your premises. During the time we go over the entire space touching everything possible to ensure we don't leave something without cleaning (within reason of course and depending on your budget).
Normally if the home needs more attention then the more likely it is that you would notice a big difference. If your home is extremely clean, less difference would be noticed but also less time would be required and initial deep cleaning cost would also be less than anticipated.
A maintenance cleaning is basically going over the majority of the same things that we done during the deep cleaning with the exception that we cap the time based on the cost per visit we provide you to keep cost within reason.
