Your home should be your sanctuary, a place where you can relax, entertain, and make memories with the people you love. However, it is all too easy to let routine chores get away from you and end up with clutter and messes that leave you feeling overwhelmed. With residential cleaning services, you can get a helping hand with those chores so you have more time in your schedule and can enjoy a cleaner, healthier, safer home.

What is Residential Cleaning?

Customized Home Cleaning Services

Residential cleaning services can include routine cleaning at your preferred frequency, such as once every week or twice monthly. Experts recommend that most cleaning tasks like cleaning the bathroom and washing the floors should be performed once every 1-2 weeks.[1] Alternatively, residential cleaning may include deep cleaning that addresses out-of-the-way areas that can accumulate dust, dirt, and grime that’s easy to overlook during your weekly cleanings.

With residential cleaning services, you’ll have a professional housecleaner—or a team of housecleaners depending on the size of your home—come to your home and take care of all the cleaning tasks you need, from dusting to vacuuming to wiping down hard surfaces. Professional home cleaning services ensure that your home gets sparkling clean without causing any damage to various surfaces from the wrong cleaning products or tools. Home cleaners will utilize the right products for every part of your home, and they can even recommend sustainable, Earth-friendly cleaning products that don’t cause harm to the environment.

What is the Cost of Home Cleaning Services?

If you are thinking about hiring a house cleaner, your first thought might be, “What is the cost of home cleaning services?” The cost of home cleaning services will depend on several factors, including your location, the specific cleaning services you need, and the size of your home. According to Angi, the average cost of routine household cleaning in the United States is $170 per visit. However, specialized cleaning services can cost more but will be necessary much less often. Additionally, large homes over 3,000 square feet will incur higher costs for routine household cleaning services because they require much more time to clean.[3]

Reasons to Hire Professional Residential Cleaning Services

You might think that hiring professional cleaners to clean your home isn’t worth the cost because you can simply clean your house yourself. However, cleaning is time-consuming, and it’s not most people’s favorite activity. Plus, you’ll still need to spend money on cleaning supplies and equipment if you go the DIY route. With professional cleaners, you can eliminate the stress and keep your home looking great and feeling more comfortable. Plus, a cleaner home can yield some surprising benefits.

Residential cleaning services can make your life more enjoyable.

Daily cleaning tasks like running the dishwasher, folding laundry, and wiping down countertops may not require much time, but routine home cleaning can take hours to get done. If you’re like most people, your free time is limited, so you won’t want to spend it scrubbing your floors and cleaning your shower. With help from the pros, you can enjoy more of your free time without compromising the cleanliness of your home.

A clean house can help you be more productive.

A cluttered house can lead to a cluttered mind. Dirty, disorganized spaces can have a profound negative effect on your mental health, leaving you feeling stressed and unfocused. Conversely, having a cleaner home may actually help you be more productive and creative.[4]

Additionally, clean and organized homes are safer for the whole family. The risk of falling is reduced when items are put away and floors are regularly cleaned. Regular cleaning can even reduce fire hazards around the house.

Cleaning can improve indoor air quality.

House cleaning reduces dust and dirt in your home, which in turn improves your indoor air quality. Cleaner indoor air can reduce allergy and asthma symptoms and help you get sick less often. Plus, improved indoor air quality can even reduce wear and tear on your HVAC system.

A clean home is good for your health.

There are many surprising positive health effects that come with having a clean home. A clean house can help reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, improve your nightly sleep, and reduce stress.[5]  Additionally, regularly cleaning and sanitizing surfaces will eliminate germs, mold, and allergens that can cause you and your family to get sick.[6]

Professional cleaners can take on the jobs you can’t or don’t want to do.

Some residential cleaning tasks may require squeezing into tight places, climbing on ladders, and dealing with lots of dust, dirt, and cobwebs. Professional cleaners can take care of these tasks for you so that you don’t have to deal with the tough cleaning jobs. For individuals with mobility issues, professional cleaning may be necessary for safely managing chores like dusting baseboards and ceilings, cleaning ceiling fans and light fixtures, and mopping floors.
