There are many reasons people choose recurring cleaning services. It can otherwise be known as maintenance cleaning. Regular cleaning preserves the quality of materials, as build-up can wear down the surfaces of your home. It also reduces allergies, prevents mold, and saves you the time of having to do it yourself! Essentially, we are taking care of cleaning surfaces on a regular basis, so they don’t get overwhelmingly dirty. A clean home is a happy home.
The initial cleaning visit to your home will take more time than your regular maintenance cleanings. Types of things that can cause this are: new construction, renovations, regular build-up in kitchens, bathrooms, dust, floors. Specifically, grease, soap scum, fingerprints, bugs, shoe prints, splatters, hair/fur, etc.
