In the grips of a pandemic it's natural to want a clean and comfortable business or home. But, what's involved with a deep clean and how much does it cost? You're in the right place to answer these questions and more.
A deep clean is a top to bottom clean of an entire property and its contents. These will include not only regular high touch areas like benches, tables, chairs and doors, but also inside appliances like ovens, behind washing machines and other kitchen appliances, under the sinks and the ceiling. Deep cleaning can also include washing blinds and the removal of grease and grime from wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms. In homes, deep cleaning might also include cleaning the patio and patio doors.
A deep cleaner assesses which surfaces require disinfection and chemical cleaning. Based on their quote they will then inform you of the work that is involved with deep cleaning. This quote should include exactly what work will be done, what it will cost and when you can expect the job to be done. A professional deep cleaning service will ensure that virtually every surface is free of dust, insects and any other nasties lurking in any hard to reach places.
A good place to start is by asking family or friends if they know of any professional deep cleaning services. Another easy way is online through services like Airtasker, Oneflare or in business directories like Whitepages. Make sure you read reviews and visit a company's website to be sure of its reputation. A good rule is to choose three service providers for a quote and then make your decision based on which service will give the best value for money.
The cost of a deep clean for your premises will depend upon a range of factors. Some of these include the size of the property and how extensive the cleaning process will be. For example, some cleaning may require industrial vacuums or other machinery. Extensive use of chemicals can also add to the final cost. Also, the cleaners may need extra labour to move furniture and other household items.
A deep clean will clear your house or business of all forms of dust and bacteria or pathogens associated with dust and fluids in wet areas such as the kitchen and bathroom. As a result of the pandemic it has become more important than ever to maintain safe hygiene in the home and in the workplace. Deep cleaning is one of the best methods to disinfect your business or home, protecting it from Coronavirus in addition to other forms of viral and bacterial infections such as the flu.
First you will want to make sure that your valuables such as electronics, and other important household items are safe. For example, it could be a good idea to place those valuables and household items in secure storage. This could also save money on the labour cost of the deep cleaning service. Depending on how long a deep clean will take it could be a good idea to organise hotel accommodation.
The time a deep clean will take depends on a number of factors. These include the size of the house or property, the size of the kitchen and bathrooms, how extensive the cleaning process will be and how long any chemical irritants may take to subside. It could be anywhere from a matter of hours to potentially days to complete deep cleaning.
The following factors should be considered when hiring a deep cleaner:
Regular cleaning is a routine activity performed on a daily or weekly basis to ensure a home or business is free of clutter, dirt and grime. It takes less time and does not usually include hard to reach areas of the house or office. On the other hand, deep clean is more specialised and focuses on disinfecting all the surfaces in your premises. In addition to that, the need for industrial machinery and chemicals means that professionals are required for the job.
