So you’ve finally decided that your busy NYC lifestyle calls for needing a cleaning service? Congratulations! You’ve just joined the 60% of Americans who hire out help to keep their space clean and tidy. After all, it’s a big job! Why go it alone?
The first thing you should decide is who to hire. A private cleaner? A large company? Something in between? All of these choices have plus or minuses, but one thing remains true with all of them. Get a deep cleaning to start. Here’s why:
TO MAINTAIN A CLEAN SPACE IT HAS TO BE CLEAN FIRST.
At Broadway Maids we recommend a deep cleaning before anything else, because to keep it clean, you have to get it clean. If it’s been awhile since your space was thoroughly cleaned, you’ll need extra time and elbow grease to take the space to zero. A deep cleaning can afford you both! Neglected areas being furniture and under beds will get the attention they need, and extra greasy kitchens will get scrubbed properly. The next time your cleaner comes it will take a third of the effort to clean because all the hard work was done properly the first time.
DIRT TRAVELS, GET IT ALL!
Some people hire a cleaner to just clean the bathroom, or kitchen, or floors. The problem with this is dirt from other areas of the home will quickly travel to these freshly cleaned spaces and muck them up! Your best bet is to clean the entire home at once, keeping it clean longer and easier to clean in the future.
ONE DEEP CLEANING IS CHEAPER THAN 3 STANDARD CLEANINGS.
Deep Cleaning is always more expensive that Standard Cleaning because it takes more time and effort. Some people prefer to have their cleaner come in every week or 2 weeks and slowly work on getting the entire space cleaned. That’s all fine and good, but you’ll end up paying for 3-4 Standard Cleanings to get the same amount of work done in 1 Deep Cleaning. Save yourself the time and money, go for the Deep Cleaning when you hire your NYC cleaner, then enjoy having your space maintained once every couple weeks or even once monthly.
HIDDEN DIRT STILL AFFECTS YOUR HEALTH.
If you suffer from asthma or allergies, keeping a clean home is very important. Dirt and dust can affect your health in ways that are annoying or even life threatening. The dirt and dust that collects behind furniture, under beds, and in the hidden nooks and crannies of your home is just as dangerous to your health as the dust that’s out in the open. Blast every molecule with a Deep Cleaning to start and you’ll enjoy easier breathing right away.
ENJOY A SPARKLING FRIDGE AND OVEN.
Most NYC cleaning services (including Broadway Maids) offer a free fridge and/or oven cleaning included in a Deep Cleaning. These items usually cost around $30-$45 apiece to clean, so this added bonus really makes a Deep Cleaning worth your while!
