Regular cleaning is the kind you do on a daily and weekly basis. Sweeping the floors, mopping the bathrooms and kitchen, dusting, laundry, dishes, vacuuming the carpets, clean out the fridge and so forth. Deep cleaning is the kind you map out, and depending on the size of your house, could take one person several days. Deep cleaning is when you scrub down the walls, wash and wax the floors, clean windows inside and out, clear and defrost the freezer, wipe out cabinets, polish the silver, straighten up drawers, launder the bed covers and pillows, clean the oven, put in fresh shelf liners, clean the upholstery, steam clean the carpets, wash the curtains, scrub the baseboards, hose down the patio and furniture. Get the picture? When hiring a professional there is a difference in the price too. Weekly or bi-monthly cleaning is of course less than your deep clean. Deep clean can also be referred to as a "move out" or "move in" cleaning. Professionals will send a crew and this can run on average of $500-$800. (And that is without furniture and personal items on the scene).
