The average person spends nearly 13,000 hours of their life deep cleaning their home.

If you’re finding it difficult to keep your home clean on your own, it might be time to start considering a house cleaning service.

For a reasonable fee, you can get your free time back and enjoy all of the perks of a pristine household, no matter how many kids or pets you have.

But, what is included in a basic house cleaning?

We understand that every household is on a budget and paying for a professional cleaner might not be the most frugal thing.

In today’s post, we’ll go over what basic house cleaning entails and explain some of the benefits of hiring professional house cleaners.

A clean house doesn’t have to be a pipe dream.

Keep reading and learn how letting someone else handle the cleaning can change the way you live.

Why You Should Consider a House Cleaning Service

For many households, it can be tough to justify paying for a cleaning service.

If you’re on a budget, you may be more inclined to just do it all yourself and save money.

When you truly understand the benefits of house cleaning, you’ll see why 10% of all American households use them.


The biggest and most obvious benefit of hiring a cleaner is that you get hours of free time back per week.

Those evenings and weekends you spend sweeping floors, vacuuming, and kitchen cleaning will be long gone.

Instead, you’ll be able to spend that time with your family, take up a hobby, or relax in your sparkling-clean home.

In a couple of hours, a well-equipped professional cleaner can breathe new life into your home, and you won’t have to lift a finger.

Deep Clean

Most homeowners hesitate to hire cleaners because they think they can do it themselves.

While this is true to a degree, you’re never going to get a deep clean with your household equipment and cleaning products.

A professional cleaner will show up with professional equipment and the very best cleaning products.

When they leave, your house will be the cleanest it’s ever been.

Schedule recurring service and your house will remain that clean all of the time.

Healthier Living

One of the perks of having a cleaner home is healthier living.

When you’ve got dirty surfaces and debris floating around in the air, you’re going to get sick more frequently.

Indoor air quality is a particular concern.

As a country, we spend about 90% of our time indoors, so we need our indoor air to be clean.

If it’s not, you’ll breathe in harmful allergens and contaminants, which will inevitably make you and your family sick.


An overlooked benefit of hiring cleaners is the consistency that you get with each visit.

Your cleaners will be highly trained professionals who can methodically work through your home, ensuring every room is as clean as it was the previous visit.

Getting a thorough, consistent clean each time is something you can’t put a price tag on.

The expertise of a professional cleaner can’t be beaten.

What Is Included In a Basic House Cleaning?

Now, it’s time to tell you what you’ll get from a basic house cleaning.

At Magnolia Cleaning Services, we offer one-time cleaning services, regular home cleaning, deep cleaning, and move-in/move-out cleaning.

When you choose our regular home cleaning, we’ll come and take care of the following:

Kitchen Cleaning

Your kitchen is the most used room in your house and, consequently, the one that needs the most cleaning.

We’ll take care of scrubbing the countertops, as well as the outside of the cabinets and appliances.

We’ll also take care of scouring the sink, sweeping floors, mopping floors, and taking out all of the trash.

If need be, our cleaners can wipe the windows down, and then clean the baseboards, windowsills, and blinds.


Moving on to your bathrooms, we’ll again clean the countertops and outside of your cabinets.

We’ll clean the toilet and bathtub, inside and out, then wipe down the mirrors and mop the floor.

If any dusting is needed in hard-to-reach places, we’ll take care of it, in addition to emptying the trash and cleaning the baseboards.

Your bathroom will be shining once our cleaners have left.

Living Room/Bedrooms

When it comes to the sleeping and living areas, it’s important to get into all the nooks and crannies of the room, as well as the furniture.

We’ll start by vacuuming all of the carpeted areas, which are prone to harboring many of the allergens we discussed earlier.

We’ll sweep and mop any hard surfaces and dust the overhead fans and any other areas that need a dusting.

From there, we’ll work our way through the furniture, ensuring that it’s thoroughly cleaned, dusted, and ready for further use.

If you’ve got sliding glass doors we’ll wipe down the glass, then vacuum and dust the runners.

We’ll wipe down any other windows as well.

Lastly, we’ll wipe down all of the baseboards, window sills, and blinds before changing the sheets, making the beds, and throwing out any trash.

Optional Extras

In addition to our standard cleaning services, we also offer a room disinfecting service that gives you added safety in your own home.

You’ll pay extra per room, but when you opt for this service, we’ll wipe surfaces down before using an electrostatic disinfection spray that kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses.
