An Overview on the Different Types of Cleaning Services

The lifestyle of the modern Singaporean doesn’t leave much time (and energy) for chores. However, one cannot simply compromise the hygiene of their home simply because of their personal lack of resources. As a response to the ever-increasing demand for domestic cleaning, various firms have emerged in the market under the tag of “professional cleaning specialists,” offering a multitude of different services for different needs. Should you intent to hire one, the first step to doing to it correctly is to identify the specific services that you require.

Basic Cleaning

The most common and basic of cleaning services, it includes tasks such as dusting, vacuum, basic cleaning of carpets, mopping of different types of floors, as well as spot-cleaning. Typically, basic cleaning covers most – if not all – areas of the property, such as kitchens, bathrooms, the living room, and hallways etc. Garbage disposal is also within the scope of basic cleaning. This is a regular cleaning service that should be carried out once a week in general.

Deep Cleaning

Deep cleaning involves the interior of the property undergoing extensive cleaning procedures. This includes the scrubbing of floors, deep cleaning of the carpets (usually with a steam and power vacuum), scrubbing of the kitchen equipment, cleaning of upholstery, appliances, fittings and others. Deep cleaning is essential for those who wish to have almost all forms of filth thoroughly eliminated, ranging from dust to stubborn stains. Depending on the status quo, deep cleaning should be carried out on a average of every two months. If children are present, you may need this service on a more frequent basis to maintain hygiene.

End of Tenancy Cleaning

This cleaning service may be contractually required by both tenant and landlord in a leasing agreement. It takes place upon the end of a tenancy, leaving the vacant space clean and ready for use by the next tenant. The process can encompass both deep cleaning and/or basic cleaning.

One-time Cleaning

Cleaning that is carried out after a particular event comes under this category. It is often conducted with very specific time requirements, in particular, after the end of parties, renovation work, repairs and yard sales. The exact scope and tasks involved are unique, catering to the specific event in question.
