Daily House Cleaning v. Deep Cleaning Service

5/12/2019 (Permalink)

If your home is in need of change, you may be considering a professional cleaning service. However, you may wonder if that is something you can do yourself. Here is the room by room differences between general cleaning and deep cleaning to help you decide what is best for you.


The Kitchen is one of the places that accumulate most grime. While a general clean take care of surface dirt and dust, deep cleaning goes behind and inside everything for a more thorough wash. 

When it comes to general cleaning, appliances such as the oven, fridge, microwave, and dishwasher, they will be wiped down and clean on top and outside. General cleaning will also include mopping, vacuuming, chair and table surface dusting and wipe down.

A deep cleaning will target inside and behind the appliances as well as all surfaces and knickknacks will be disinfected and shined.


To keep a bathroom looking and smelling fresh, deep cleaning it often is the best option. With general cleaning, shower stalls, tiles, toilet, vanity, and the sink will be cleaned and disinfected. A deep clean will give all areas more attention, cleaning more than just the surface, shower door and tiles will be scrubbed to prevent mildew growth, and any existing mildew will be chemically treated.

Living Room

Everything that is in plain sight will be cleaned in a general living room cleaning. All surfaces, mirrors, windowsills, and floors will be dusted, vacuumed and cleaned. Deep cleaning in a living room focuses on details such as the lamp shades, ceiling fans, carpet edges, vents, and blinds. It is important to have your home deep cleaned so you don’t have accumulated dust in areas that you can’t see since that can be detrimental to health.


General cleaning will usually make the bed, wipe surfaces and vacuum. An in-depth service will clean baseboards, vacuum under the bed, and dust all materials, as well as organize the room for a neater appearance.
