What is included in a deep house cleaning

Deep Cleaning House Checklist.

When it comes to house cleaning, there are two types of cleaning. There are regular cleaning services where either a domestic cleaning company will clean your home, or you will do it yourself. This is our normal maintenance cleaning to include the cleaning of floors, and basic cleaning of toilets, kitchens and other rooms.

Every now and then, you will require a deep house cleaning service, either by a company or by yourself to get that deeper dirt and grime, to keep your home looking great. The cleaning schedule is more detailed, more elbow grease is required and the time taken is much longer.
