Like it or not, houses get dirty — that’s just the nature of homes, especially in a city such as Cleveland. But more and more people are becoming way too busy to find time to really clean up around their homes, whether it’s for weekend cleanings, for holidays and special occasions or when getting ready to move out into a new apartment.
During these moments, it might be worth your time to hire a professional house cleaning service. They’ll take the chore of cleaning up around your house off your hands and allow you to sit back and relax while you enjoy your new clean home. Unfortunately, there are a lot of cleaning services in Ohio — so how would you know which maid service in Cleveland would be the best value for money?
Every house and apartment is completely unique, and your final invoice will depend on your home and its condition. A 4 bedroom house will definitely take longer to clean than a 1-bedroom apartment, and the price will definitely reflect this fact. The size (and number) of your bathrooms and your kitchen is definitely another factor, since these two rooms take the longest to clean. Another thing companies consider as well is if you have pets or children living in the house. This could mean that your final bill could range anywhere between $150 to $400 — it’s a wide range, I know, but be honest about where your home falls within the spectrum and you’ll get a more accurate estimate from your maid company.
While some people choose to get a cleaning only for special occasions (having guests over for the holiday, for example), you might be one of those people who prefer to not do any cleaning yourself aside from the occasional tidying up. If this is you, then hiring maids to come over regularly is definitely for you. How much would this cost though? If your household haven’t had professional cleaning anytime within the last month, then don’t be surprised to find if the first visit costs more than subsequent cleanings. This is because with your initial session, additional work needs to be performed in order to get it to a certain standard — after that though, your home will only need maintenance cleanings for future sessions. Which is why whenever possible, you should subscribe to regular cleaning services as this certainly translates to money and effort saved on your part. Rates for regular cleanings will vary depending on how often you want your house to get cleaned — most companies offer weekly, biweekly or monthly packages. Expect this to range anywhere between $100 to $250 per cleaning session.
What services does your cleaning include? Typically, this includes dusting, vacuuming and scrubbing of floors, bathroom sinks, kitchen counter tops and the like. You’ll be hard pressed to find a cleaning company who will be willing to clean your dishes by hand — this is simply for your protection, because as careful as some cleaners are they certainly want to reduce the risk of breaking your stuff, so make sure that this is done before the maids arrive in your house. A company like Cardinal Maids charge extra for other services like cleaning inside your oven, inside your fridge, interior windows and inside your cabinets for an additional $20 each.
If ever you feel like your house needs to get tidied up, strongly consider hiring a house cleaning and maid service. It’s a great alternative for those who don’t have the time and energy to clean up their homes, but be as informed as you can so you won’t be surprised with your final invoice.
