How Often Should I Have My House Cleaned?

There’s no hard-and-fast answer to the question of how often to have your house cleaned. However, anyone thinking about hiring a cleaning service must pin down a schedule that works for them. Here are some factors to consider when deciding the frequency of professional cleanings.

How often do you clean your house?

The most common answer to this question is once a week. Whether you do all your chores on Saturday or complete one a day throughout the week, most people sweep and mop, vacuum, clean the bathroom, and dust the furniture on a seven-day rotation.

As a result, the ideal situation for most families is to have the home professionally cleaned every week, leaving only minor cleaning for the homeowner to do. That said, weekly cleanings aren’t realistic for every family. That’s why Molly Maid offers weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, and even one-time cleanings to meet your individual needs.

What is your budget for professional house cleaning?

The size of your home will determine how much each cleaning service will cost, but it’s up to you to choose how often you have us at your home. Molly Maid offers weekly, bi-weekly, monthly and even one-time cleanings. To help you determine a schedule that best fits your budget and home’s needs, your local Molly Maid team is happy to provide a no-obligation, in-home estimate for our cleaning services so you can know what to expect each time. There are no contracts, and you are free to cancel at any time!

How willing are you to clean between visits from Molly Maid?

With help from your family members, you might have the time and physical capabilities to complete some degree of surface cleaning on a daily or weekly basis. Just be reasonable when thinking about what you can get done between visits from Molly Maid.

For instance, if you work 80 hours a week, your free time might be such a precious commodity that weekly cleanings are the most appropriate option. If you have busy weeks here and there, but you usually have time to get a little housework done each day, bi-weekly or monthly assistance with chores may fit your needs better.

What level of cleanliness do you want your home to have?

If you’re still struggling with pinning down the ideal schedule for home cleaning services, start with the lowest frequency available—monthly cleanings. Then, if you find yourself short on time to clean between visits, grimacing at the state of your kitchen and bathrooms, and counting down the days until the professional cleaners arrive, then you know monthly visits aren’t often enough.

Selecting how frequently to have your house cleaned isn’t a permanent decision. If you pick a schedule, and it doesn’t end up working out, simply speak with your crew about changing your service agreement to weekly or bi-weekly cleanings instead.
