The Differences between a “Deep Clean” and a “Basic Clean”

Every home and homeowner is unique, but there are some simple differences between a Deep Cleaning and the more general house cleaning services that Cleanly provides on a daily or bi-weekly basis. In a nutshell, a Deep Clean occurs when our team of expert housekeeping professionals go over every nook and cranny of your lovely home from rafters to floorboards.

In a Basic Cleaning, our professional cleaning services include a thorough cleaning of the kitchen appliances. But in a Deep Cleaning, we’ll likely detail the inner workings of the stove top burners and even the drip pans underneath. We’ll clean under the heavier, hard-to-move furniture, wipe the dirt and grime from around light switches, and detail the air vents and register units. A Deep Cleaning takes a bit longer to complete, but the results are well worth it.
