A domestic cleaning service can include a range of tasks that help clean or maintain the inside of your home. Whether you want a cleaner on a regular schedule or a one-off service, a domestic house cleaner will come with the equipment (and experience) needed to make your home sparkle. Here’s what you can expect from your domestic cleaning service:One-off cleans
A one-off clean can include one room (like the bathroom) or up to the entire house. You can explain what needs to be done or let your cleaner assess your home and prioritise the areas that most need cleaning. They can help with washing and hanging laundry, cleaning the bathrooms, scrubbing the kitchen, dusting surfaces, or vacuuming. You can also request detail cleaning like sanitising the bins, cleaning appliances under the sink, and cleaning specific items. Most one-off cleans are booked for either a set amount of time (2 hours) or set deliverables (all floors washed and vacuumed).Regular cleans
If you work long hours, hiring a regular domestic cleaning service makes sense. Your cleaner will show up every week or fortnight to maintain your home. They’ll ask for a list of tasks you’d like completed during each clean, or provide a standard task list. Common tasks include putting items away, stacking and unpacking dishwashers, watering house plants, vacuuming, mopping, taking out the rubbish, cleaning showers and bathrooms, and wiping down surfaces. Most cleaners will bring their own supplies, but some will prefer to use your vacuum, mop, and detergents. Depending on the size of your home, they may need anywhere from 1-4 hours to complete a regular clean. At the end of the clean, they may leave a note to communicate about cleaning supplies that need topping up, or other cleaning jobs they may need to focus on next time.End-of-lease bond cleans
End-of-lease bond cleans are another popular domestic cleaning service. These cleans are designed to clean your rental home inside and out before you hand the keys back over to your landlord. Once everything is taken care of, you should get your bond back in full. That’s why it’s important to hire a domestic house cleaner who has experience with bond cleans. They’ll do a thorough clean of all inside surfaces (including kitchens, bathrooms, floors, ceilings, walls, doors, windows, and cupboards) and prepare your home for the final house inspection. They’ll use cloths, brushes, vacuums, dusters, mops, and more to get everything spic and span.Moving in cleans
Move-in cleans are a very good idea if you’re about to buy or rent somewhere new. Not only because moving in (and out) a stressful and tiring experience which leaves you with no extra energy for cleaning yet another property. But the previous owners, no matter how well-intentioned, might have left some dirt, grime, and dust that you’ll want to take care of before you settle in. It’s best if you can engage a domestic cleaning service as soon as you have the keys, so that everything’s fresh and clean before you move in. Your domestic cleaner will scrub down all surfaces, lighting fixtures, cabinets, oven, toilets, showers, and the floor.
