Residential NYC Cleaning Service: Come Home to a Clean House

Residential NYC Cleaning Service Come Home to a Clean HouseWe’re all given 24 hours. But between working, commuting, raising our families and catching some Z’s, our time is often limited to the few hours we have after work and weekends.

On top of all of life’s usual daily struggles — somehow pajamas are still a surprise every night — a messy home just makes the stress worse.

So when you actually get that little bit of time to yourself, do you really want to spend it cleaning and nagging everyone else to put their stuff away?

Of course not.

Yet hiring a professional cleaning service isn’t always an easy decision…

What will they clean? What won’t they clean?

Will they bring harsh chemicals into your home?

Can you trust strangers?

Do you have to sign a contract?

Can you really even afford it?

Unless you have absolutely zero budget, you can find an affordable cleaning service.

Working Out the Details

What a professional maid will and won’t clean ultimately depends on what you need done and how much you’re willing to pay.

General Duties

While it will vary from company to company, a general cleaning service will usually include things like:

  • Mopping tile floors
  • Vacuuming carpets and rugs
  • Washing / drying wood floors
  • Removing items and dusting
    • Frames
    • Knickknacks
    • Windowsills
    • Ledges
    • Furniture
    • Woodwork
    • Tables
    • Shelves
    • Cleaning baseboards and walls
    • Vacuuming furniture (under cushions, too)
    • Cleaning / polishing all glass, mirrors and chrome
    • Emptying and cleaning ashtrays and waste baskets
    • Making beds and changing linens
    • Folding loose clothing
    • General straightening and organizing

Extra Duties

If you want certain items cleaned that aren’t included in the general cleaning duties, you can simply speak with your housekeeper and make arrangements to have that cleaned as well. For an extra fee, many housekeeping services will:

  • Do laundry
  • Deep clean your home
  • Organize closets
  • Wash windows & skylights
  • Steam clean grout

Housekeepers Will Not Clean…

If there are any family heirlooms, valuable or irreplaceable items, you can ask that your housekeeper doesn’t clean those items or the surrounding area.

A closed door will usually serve as a signal to the housekeeper that you do not want that room cleaned. A closed drawer will never be opened unless you’ve requested that service.

As long as you are clear about what you do and don’t want cleaned, there should be no issues with the service you receive.

There Are Companies That Specialize in Green Cleaning

While many cleaning services will use ordinary chemical cleaners to clean your home, there are companies that use green, all natural cleaners.

You can even buy your own natural cleaners and ask your housekeeper to use those instead of their traditional cleaners. Just make sure you keep them in-stock!

Trust Shouldn’t Be an Issue If…

Whether you hire a commercial cleaning company or an individual to clean your home, make sure that you’re choosing a service that’s bonded, licensed and insured.

This way the person or company is covered in the event that they are injured while on your property, something is broken or taken.

The license simply means that the service follows all local laws and regulations and that the company is on record with the government. It’s another reassurance that your company is honest and reliable.

Don’t Sign a Contract If You Don’t Want To

While many companies will try to force you into a yearly contract, there are services that don’t require it. If the push toward a contract seems too aggressive, consider finding a company that offers perks for signing a contract but doesn’t require one.

What Does Affordable Mean to You?

While budget is certainly a big consideration, you should also think about what the extra time is worth to you. What will do instead of cleaning? Go to more soccer games? Ballet practice? Take up a new hobby? Spend more time reading or exploring the city?

Not only will you have more time to do the things you really enjoy, you’ll also create a more relaxing atmosphere in your home, avoid arguments with your spouse and kids about who’s turn it is to clean what and live a healthier life.
