Keeping Your Business Immaculate

When we installed a suggestion box in the entryway of our business, I was amazed to see how many customers responded. After we started going through the suggestions, we realized that there was one request that we kept seeing--the need for a cleaner store. We decided to make a few changes to keep our place cleaner, including hiring a professional cleaning service. The results were incredible. Customers started to comment on how clean our place was, instead of the need for dramatic changes. We also noticed a boost in our sales because customers felt more comfortable in our store.

3 Expenses To Prepare For When Scheduling Cleaning For A Large Home

by Lee Porter

Cleaning a large home can come with challenges compared to an apartment or smaller home. When you've decided to hire professionals to clean your home, either on a routine basis or as a one-time deep clean, you'll want to prepare for all the expenses involved.  

Instead of being surprised by the expense of cleaning, consider the different aspects of a larger home and how they can lead to higher costs. 

Stairs Fee

If your home has multiple floors, there's a good chance you could need to pay extra due to the cleaners needing to take the stairs. Not only will equipment need to be taken up and down the stairs during the cleaning, but the stairs themselves will also need special attention. 

When reaching out to cleaners, ensure that you understand any fees related to the stairs and what cleaning methods will be used. 

Hourly Rate

It's common for professional cleaning companies to charge by the hour, making the cost of cleaning a large home more expensive. When you reach out to cleaners, make sure to discuss their hourly rate and share the square footage of your home. These two numbers can help you get a realistic estimate of how much it will cost for your home to be cleaned.

Deep Clean

Areas of your home that need more attention could lead to the expense being much higher than anticipated, making it wise to assess what kind of cleaning is necessary. When it's been a long time since you've done any deep cleaning, there's a good chance that a lot of dust and debris has built up in typically ignored areas. This could mean the ceiling, closets, underneath furniture, and other hard-to-reach places.

Professional cleaners may have specific prices for these different areas and the difficulties associated with them, such as needing a ladder to clean the ceiling. Understanding what areas need a deep clean can help you get an accurate estimate, making it a good idea to ask questions.

Having your home deep cleaned can be difficult when it's been a long time since you've had professional cleaning done. Large homes mean more square footage and an increase in the extent of work necessary to deep clean your home as needed. By understanding where some of the different costs come from, you can have an easier time scheduling the cleaning to be done and avoid a situation where the price is a lot higher than anticipated.
