What do house cleaners do?

House cleaners do common tasks like sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping of floors. They also clean toilets, sinks, tubs and counters, or generally tidy up your space. Cleaning stoves and refrigerators is also common. Some may also offer laundry services for linens, clothing and towels. Others may do meal prep, grocery shopping, animal waste collection, or organizing. Cleaning interior windows is common, but not always exterior. Polishing dinnerware and other brass or silver household items is also possible. Generally most cleaners are willing to work with you on any general or specialized cleaning tasks you may have.

 

How long does it take to clean a 3 bedroom house?

Deep cleaning for an average home can take anywhere from 5 to 20 hours, depending on the severity of the mess. Deep set dirty, grime, grease and stains in particular can make a job time intensive. To prepare for this, cleaning companies will often have many cleaners on site for a deep clean to finish the job in a single visit. A home that has been deep cleaned, will average for a regular 3 bedroom house about 3 hours with a single cleaner.

 

How do you prepare for house cleaning?

Put any important items such as instruments, tools, electronics, etc. you don’t want handled in their place out of the way. This includes important bills and other documents. Mark damaged or fragile items or put them away. Note any areas of the home that are especially in need of care. Pets should be out of the way and in a secure location. Your cleaner is not trained in animal handling and should not be responsible for directing or moving animals.
