How Often Should You Get Your Home Cleaned?

Hi all you beautiful families out there!

Happy April! I hope everyone reading this is as excited for spring as I am. Here in the Pacific Northwest we are all glad when the spring rolls around, even if it still means rain.

I am here to answer the burning question I am asked almost every time I interact with a new cleaning client... How often should I get my home cleaned?

Let's dive into the world of residential cleanings and explore the differences between weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly cleanings.

First up, weekly cleanings. These are perfect for busy families with pets or children. You can relax knowing that your home will be sparkling clean every week, giving you the peace of mind you deserve. Plus, it only takes a few hours, so you won't be sacrificing your entire weekend to keep your home in order. Personally, I choose this for my home, because I have pets and a toddler. If you know, you know!

Next, we have bi-weekly cleanings. These happen every other week, which means you have a week off from cleaning every other week! Bi-weekly cleanings are perfect for households with lower traffic, such as singles or couples. They give you enough time to enjoy a clean home, without the expense of a weekly cleaning.

Finally, we have monthly cleanings. These are perfect for households with low traffic, such as empty-nesters or individuals who travel often. Monthly cleanings give you the chance to deep clean your home and take care of any areas that might have been neglected during your daily or weekly cleaning routine.

So, why would I recommend choosing weekly or bi-weekly cleanings over monthly ones? The answer is simple: the more frequently you clean your home, the easier it is to maintain. As busy parents or working professionals, it takes all our spare time just to keep the clutter at bay and take care of our daily cleaning tasks. A weekly or bi-weekly cleaning takes the mental work out of it, leaving you to actually focus on the things you do best.

Choosing the frequency of your residential cleaning depends on your personal preference and the amount of traffic in your home. If you have a busy household, weekly cleanings might be the best choice for you. If you're looking for a balance between cost and upkeep, bi-weekly cleanings might be the way to go. And if you have a low-traffic home, monthly cleanings can help you keep your space in order without breaking the bank.
