The Difference Between Regular Cleaning and Deep Cleaning

Are you planning to hire a House Cleaning Company but can’t decide what type of service to choose? Deep Cleaning or Regular Cleaning? Which is suitable for your house? Well, you are not alone. Some people are not aware if they need a deep cleaning or just a regular cleaning. Miracle Cleaning Pros will provide the options of deep cleaning as well as the standard or regular cleaning. If you’re not aware of their differences, you may not know if you paid for deep cleaning but got a regular one.

So, we must learn the differences between the two. By that, you will know what you’ve been expecting from the cleaners.


The Regular Cleaning       

In this type of service, first, your house must have a deep cleaning for at least six months or less. It means your home has a regular basis or domestic cleaning. Some people cleaned their homes weekly, biweekly, or monthly. 

By doing Regular Cleaning, we maintain a good level of cleanliness around every corner of our homes.


Following is the inclusion for regular cleaning:

  • Disinfecting the bathtub, shower, and toilets
  • Sweeping and vacuuming floors and carpets
  • General Dusting
  • Taking out the Trash
  • Cleaning the kitchen surface
  • Wiping surfaces (including fixtures and appliances)
  • Remove Cobwebs
  • Make beds, change linens


The Deep Cleaning 

Deep Cleaning has a big difference from Regular Cleaning. Deep Cleaning is our process of thorough cleaning which puts more focus on dirt build-up throughout your home. It is a type of cleaning performed to more exacting standards than regular, recurring, maintenance-type cleaning.

Most Cleaning Companies require Deep Cleaning when your home has had no professional cleaning for six months or more. It is also a wise decision to book for deep cleaning when you have upcoming parties or events.  

When planning to moves in or out, deep cleaning is the best type of cleaning for you to choose, also recommended for the first-time cleaned home.

Deep Cleaning is recommended if you want to sell your old house, it can help the property be more attractive to potential buyers.
