Cleaning services refer to a specialized external service, often offered by maid service agencies, apartment cleaning companies, commercial cleaning companies and janitorial services. These companies offer specialized services like cleaning, dusting, vacuuming, scrubbing floors, cleaning bathrooms and showers, mopping, cleaning kitchens and removing pet stains. Some cleaning services are available at different times of the day. Some offer evening, weekend and holiday services. Maid services are generally provided by independent contractors while some cleaning services are franchises, offering franchise opportunities.
Vacuuming and dusting are the most basic cleaning services. When you vacuum, you remove the allergens that have been embedded into carpet fibres and upholstery. A Vacuum is the only way to ensure that all surfaces are thoroughly cleaned. Cleaning services include: vacuuming floors, ceilings, tile and hardwood.
Most buildings need deep cleaning services at least once a week. They include cleaning windows and facades, siding and gutters, eaves, roof trusses, gutters, pavers, bricks, tiles, and concrete. Professional cleaners provide a comprehensive solution for all types of surfaces. These include glass, porcelain, marble and granite. Professional cleaners use industrial cleaners and chemical solutions to remove grime, dirt and debris from building surfaces. Some surfaces may need to be scraped free or sanded to remove grit.
People have different cleaning needs. Some are regular, such as houses, apartments and offices, while others are irregular, such as holiday homes and golf courses. For homes, people hire a house cleaner to clean the interiors on a regular basis; for commercial establishments, hiring a professional house cleaner is a routine part of maintaining the premises.
Professional cleaning services offer services such as window cleaning, walls and floors, toilets and lavatories, tile and grout cleaning, carpet cleaning, and upholstery cleaning. Window cleaning services include cleaning windows on a daily basis and repairing damages that may have been caused by water leakage, wind, or snow. Walls and floors receive less attention than other surfaces, and so do not get polished as much. Carpets tend to get dirty more often than other parts of the house, and so carpet cleaning is done on a regular basis. Tile cleaning is also done on a regular basis for homes, as it is a porous surface and can absorb excess moisture from the atmosphere.
Professional cleaning services include cleaning floors and furniture surfaces on a regular basis, including high traffic areas such as hallways, bathrooms and kitchens. They also clean outdoor areas such as patios, sidewalks, driveways, walkways and pool decks on a regular basis. Floors can be vacuumed, mopped, swept and dusted. Upholstered furniture can be cleaned using special cleaning products and agents, as well as being vacuumed and swept.
