How Often Should You Deep Clean Your Home?

Even if you’re cleaning your home regularly, it’s still really crucial to do the occasional deep clean. Going beyond surface-level dirt and grime, a full-blown deep clean will help get rid of hidden messes and address all of the touch-to-reach places around the house. 

But how do you get started?

Well, this is where professional home deep cleaning services can help. Finding a company with skilled cleaners, the latest cleaning tools and supplies, budget-friendly services, and dedication is key to getting home deep cleaning services that you’ll be happy with.

That’s why here at Jim’s Cleaning, we’ve put together a guide to deep cleaning — and also take a closer look at how we can get your place looking spick and span again. 

Understanding a deep clean for your home

Compared to a regular clean, a deep clean goes a step further by getting rid of dirt, grime, soap scum and other gunk around the house. It’s more thorough than just picking up clutter, sweeping or vacuuming floors and wiping down surfaces. Deep cleaning focuses on disinfecting your home by getting rid of germs and making your living space a healthier, cleaning and fresher environment for you and your family. Due to the involvement of this detailed cleaning work, deep cleaning takes longer and requires more effort.
