No matter what area of Cleveland you live in — Shaker Heights, Rocky River, Ohio City or any other popular neighborhood or suburb — it’s important to keep a clean home. Cleaning companies can help by coming to your home at a scheduled time with equipment and supplies and leaving you with a shiny, sparkling, more livable space.
Each cleaning company in Cleveland is different, but most offer at least three main types of house cleaning services.
Standard cleaning service includes sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, light dusting and tidying of all rooms in your home, including your kitchen, bathroom(s) and bedroom(s). If you’re having a particularly busy week or month and don’t have time for your normal clean, consider standard cleaning as a one-time service. Cleaning companies in Cleveland also offer standard cleaning on a regular basis, like weekly, biweekly or monthly.
Deep cleaning service is more intensive and takes longer than a standard clean. Cleaners give extra attention to fixtures, appliances, floors and surfaces, focusing on dirt, grime and dust. Deep cleaning is a good idea once every six months to one year.
Cleaning companies in Cleveland also commonly provide specialized cleaning services, which concentrate on one household task. Examples include carpet cleaning, window or wall washing, organization, packing/unpacking or laundry.
How much does house cleaning cost in Cleveland?
Cleveland residents spend an average of $170 for professional cleaning services, with most services costing between $115 and $240. Cleaning companies charge either a set fee or an hourly rate.
Here are factors that affect the cost of home cleaning services in Cleveland:
The size of your home
The number of bedrooms and bathrooms
The type of cleaning service you request
How dirty or messy your home is
Special requests (e.g., using green cleaning products, cleaning an area that’s hard to reach)
Whether you have shedding pets
Cleaning companies in Cleveland also price one-time service differently from regular cleanings, which often come with discounts.
