How Often Should You Clean Your Home?


When you begin to consider hiring a maid for cleaning, one of the first things you probably ask yourself is how often you should have them come by.  This is an important question to ask, but not every part of your home needs to be sanitized all the time.  Of course the kitchen should be cleaned every day and the dishes should be washed and put up.  But what about other parts of the house?  Here are some general guidelines when thinking about hiring a maid for cleaning:

  • Dusting and vacuuming should be done at least once a week or more often if you have a lot of pets.
  • Mopping should also be done about once a week.
  • Deep cleaning a house should happen several times a year or more often if you have company over a lot or if you have pets, including rugs or carpets.
  • To get your grout clean, consider the type of traffic you are talking about.  Once a month is probably standard.  Less often is fine if you don’t have a lot of traffic in the area.  Grout cleaning is more thorough than just mopping or wiping it down with cleaner.

No one really likes to clean, but it just is a necessary part of life.  Of course these guidelines are just basic standards.  If you have several children and/or pets, then you will need to scrub more often.  If it’s just you living in the space, then it’s probably alright to straighten up less often.  No one else can tell you what’s best for you and your family when it comes to cleaning, but you can make it a little easier on yourself by hiring a professional housekeeping company to pick up some of the burden.

Never is the real answer to the question.  Make the commitment to hire a maid service to do your household polishing.  You will never regret this decision.
