How Often Should You Have Professional Housekeeping Done?

You’ve decided to hire a professional housekeeping company on a regular basis. Maybe they did such an amazing job on a one-time cleaning project you hired them for. Maybe you’ve finally realized you need a little help keeping up with your home. Whatever the reason, a common question is how frequently you should have the company come clean.  The answer isn’t a one-size-fits-all, but there are some things to take into consideration to help make your answer.

How Often Should You Have Professional Housekeeping Done?

How Big is Your Home?

Larger homes take more time to clean. Some companies may prefer to split cleaning excessively large homes (such as four or more bedrooms) between two days.

How Many People Live in Your Home?

The more people that live in your home, the more frequent you’ll want your professional housekeeping to be. If it’s just you, once a month may be plenty. An average family of four may prefer weekly or biweekly cleaning.

Do You Have Pets?

Pets, like people, add to how quickly your home gets dirty. Pet owners will want to slightly increase the frequency of their cleanings. The single person mentioned above may want to have their home cleaning every two three weeks instead of monthly. The average family of four with pets may want to increase to once or twice weekly.

Does Anyone Suffer From Environmental Allergies or Compromised Immune Systems?

Professional housekeeping services can help decrease environmental allergies and create a safer place to live for people with compromised immune systems. If this applies to someone living in your home, you may want to choose a higher-than-normal frequency.
