Different types of cleaning jobs

cleaners

General cleaning

General cleaning usually involves an all-over tidy of the house including vacuuming, mopping and dusting.

You can decide how regularly you’d like a cleaning service to clean your house, whether it’s once or twice a week, or once a day.

Although a general cleaning service will concentrate on the general cleanliness of your house, if an area happens to be exceptionally dirty, such as the bathroom, you can request that they pay particular attention to that spot.

Depending on how quickly you’d like your house cleaned, you can either hire a single cleaner or team of cleaners.

End of lease/bond cleaning

Hiring a moving-out cleaning service can be a guaranteed way to secure your bond back. Professional cleaners can also ensure your rented space is sparkling clean for inspection.

With all the stress of moving out, it can be easy to accidentally miss a spot, or remember to schedule in a day to clean. A professional house cleaning service can swoop in and save the day - and ensure that no spot is overlooked.

Carpet cleaning

For stains that refuse to budge, it’s best to call the experts in. Cleaners can professionally steam clean carpets that have heavy-duty stains, for example, if your pet makes a mess or if you spill wine on your new rug.

Some rugs are made from delicate, specialised materials, such as wool, silk or cotton, that require cleaning tools and the knowledge of how to clean without damaging the rug (tools that the ordinary person may not have at their disposal).

Deep cleaning

For those with respiratory issues, traces of dust and dirt hidden in the crevices of your home can trigger asthma attacks or make breathing difficult.

A deep clean will go a step further to tidy and sterilise. This usually involves targeting areas that are skipped over in a general clean, such as removing cobwebs and dusting door frames.

Specific areas of the house

Scared to touch the thick layer of grime that has built up at the back of the fridge after years of neglect? Cleaning services can target particular sections, such as fridges, ovens or windows as extra add-ons to a general clean or as an isolated service.

It’s not always possible to have all the necessary cleaning products on hand, which is why hiring a professional is so convenient. They will have the appropriate tools on hand to attack grime, bacteria, and stains.

DIY house cleaning

If you are physically able and have some free time, then a house cleaning service may not be entirely necessary. Cleaning the house yourself can save you a potentially large amount of money that you would otherwise be investing in hiring a service.

However, on the other hand, there are also plenty of instances, where hiring a cleaning service is necessary for maintaining a clean house.

You lack free time

Many house cleaning tasks might be manageable for most - but the problem is that these tasks can require expending time and energy that you may not have - or would rather put into something else.

For full-time workers who’ve worked hard all day, the idea of coming home to a messy house that you will need to clean is a stressful one. Plus many people have other obligations such as looking after children, going grocery shopping, or simply taking some time to themselves.

If you find yourself lamenting that you have no free time, and it’s starting to take a toll, then maybe it’s worth investing in a service.

You’re not physically able to

Not everyone may be physically able to clean their house, for several reasons, so a cleaning service can help combat these issues.

Home cleaning services can be beneficial, especially for those unable to cope with the more strenuous elements of house-cleaning.

How do I choose a cleaner?

Do your research

Read through reviews to check which cleaning companies people are satisfied with and if they clean in a timely manner. Referrals from online reviews are integral to deciding whether a service is safe to invest in.

Enquire into whether your cleaning service is insured so that if the cleaner accidentally breaks something or hurts themselves, you won't be covering the costs.

Look into what type of cleaning materials a company is using. Check if your cleaner uses products with harsh chemicals or environmentally friendly ingredients.

This may be particularly important if members of your household experience allergies or other breathing problems.

Word of mouth

Similar to the above, it’s beneficial to seek recommendations from people you trust, whether that’s a family member, friend, or work colleague. Ask what services they have used, and whether you think they would be a good fit for your home.

Decide on how much you’re willing to pay

Whether you wish to set up a weekly clean or just require a one time-time cleaning service, it's beneficial to establish a budget. Then you can shop around and compare house cleaning prices in your budget.

Keep in mind that if you have a spacious house with many rooms or need your space clean as soon as possible, you’ll probably need multiple workers so they can cover more area in a faster amount of time - which will bump up the price.

How much does a house cleaner cost per hour?

A general clean can cost anywhere between $20-$60 an hour. However, the amount you’ll pay depends on different factors, such as what type of cleaning service you’re after, the company you use, and the size of the area you’d like cleaned.

Some cleaning companies offer reduced prices for if you use their services more regularly - for instance every day opposed to once a week.
