It certainly isn't anyone's favorite thing to do, so many hire it out. House cleaners are in top demand for people whose work and recreational lifestyle prevents them from keeping everything super clean. Office cleaners are also in high demand, and can be rather costly for a business. Knowing the difference between residential and commercial cleaning will allow you to select the right service for you.
Residential - this term refers to a type of property wherein individuals and families reside. In a residential property, such as a house, the most common cleaning service is provided by a maid company. These companies often clean the house's floors, windows, bathrooms and baseboards. Residential cleaning services usually charge extra for upholstery cleaning to remove stains or odors. For another additional cost, some cleaning companies will steam clean the grout between the tile as well as steam clean your carpets. All aforementioned cleaning services can be purchased through separate companies. One last point is that maid services often require families and individuals to do some light cleaning before they arrive as some of their services are limited.
Commercial - this term refers to the type of property wherein a business would reside. Larger commercial properties, such as office buildings, are maintained by a janitorial service. A janitor, unlike a maid, works for the business in question and performs all cleaning duties. There are janitorial companies that specialize in working with maid services, window cleaning services and floor cleaning services. With any service, the company will use industrial strength cleaning products to do the most cleaning in the least amount of time. Both commercial and residential cleaning services do their work when the homeowner is away or the business is closed.
If you need to clean your house but don’t have a lot of time, consider hiring a cleaning company. This is a company that will send a maid to your house to thoroughly clean the property.
These services aren’t just available to residential homes though. You can hire a cleaning company to work on a commercial or industrial space as well. For example, you could hire a maid or janitor to clean the office where you do business. They will clean everything from the windows and floors, to the furniture and upholstery.
Many specialize in odor removal from pets or cigarettes, and some even have carpet steaming equipment. When the maid or janitor is done, you won’t even recognize the place. The tile will sparkle between clean grout, and you will see your reflection in the windows. You won’t be able to find that old stain on the couch, because the company will have steamed it away and left the couch dry.
Whether you need help with domestic chores, or need help around the office, a cleaning company can get the job done. When selecting a service, it is important to ask for references as you will be letting these people into your home or office. You want to make sure the company is reputable and is known for delivering stellar results. The price of these services can vary, as many charge by the hour, the job or even the task.
One thing is for sure, there is nothing quite like seeing your house or office in top shape, and knowing that you didn’t have to lift a finger.
