Home Cleaning

Tile & Grout

Is your grout starting to show signs of build-up?

 

We can help with the gentle removal of minor stains in small areas like the shower or spot cleaning areas of the floor. But if you have a large area to clean, you'll want to hire a grout specialist who can bring in larger machinery to get the job done efficiently. 

Sometimes, grout needs to be ground down and resealed in order to get rid of severe stains - kind of like when a dentist works on a cavity. We can refer you to one of our grout specialists to help with those cases.

What are the health benefits of a clean home?

How often should I have my house cleaned?

Having a clean home has a lot of health benefits. Whether you clean your home on your own or you hire a professional cleaning service like us, we recommend cleaning regularly to maintain a healthy home environment.

 

  • Your surfaces are free from dust, grime and bacteria.

  • Your allergies won't be as severe.

  • You will be less likely to attract ants or other infestations.

  • Lowers your chance of mold growing.

  • Get rid of odors.

We recommend cleaning your home regularly. Most of our clients use us either every 2 weeks aor every 4 weeks. But the frequency of your cleanings will largely depend on how you use your home. If you have kids or pets you may need to have your home cleaned more often.

 

Think about what kind of cleaning tasks your home needs daily, weekly and monthly. Then determine which of these tasks you're willing to do on your own. Consider how long it would take for the remaining house cleaning tasks to pile up. Cut that time in half.

 

For example, if you don't like cleaning your bathroom, you'll want to hire a cleaning service for those areas. Think about how long it takes before you start to feel like the bathroom looks gross. If it takes a month for the bathroom to start to make you feel icky, hire a cleaning service to come in and clean the bathroom every 2 weeks.

When should I have my home deep cleaned?

If you're the type of household that cleans regularly, you may want to supplement your efforts by scheduling a professional cleaning service to come in and perform a one-time deep clean a few times a year.

 

We recommend deep cleaning every 3-4 months. Most of the areas you will deep clean don't usually get much use. They are usually things that are out of site like baseboards, ceiling fans, light fixtures on the walls, under your sofa cushions, etc. So they will get dirty at a slower rate than the rest of the home. But still, you don't want to ignore these areas for too long as they can have long-lasting affects to the overall health of your environment.

How long should a deep cleaning take?

It will vary for each home. We've noticed that smaller homes usually take longer per square foot than larger homes. People tend to pack in a lot of items into small spaces making it difficult to move around and clean everything. A good rule of thumb is each room will take an hour to clean. With the bathrooms and kitchens taking up to 2 hours each if they aren't cleaned regularly.

Do you clean inside the fridge?

We only offer interior fridge cleaning for Move-out and Move-in cleanings. We don't allow our housekeepers to handle food while they are cleaning. Fridge cleaning can take 1-1.5 hours which means that food spoilage becomes a real concern.

I had an outstanding deep clean by Spring Into Clean! Communication was quick and easy, and the booking form on their site allowed me to get a price quote and customize the service to meet my needs. The team showed up on time fully equipped with all the necessary supplies, were easy to communicate with, and went above and beyond to get the apartment even cleaner than it was when I first moved in. Overall it was a great experience from start to finish, and I strongly recommend them.

Our All-Season Deep Cleaning Checklist 

A deep clean is a great way to keep your home well-maintained during any time of year. Even if you take care of regular messes with basic cleanings, a deep clean will help keep your home in tip-top shape by cleaning those hard-to-reach areas that don’t see much thorough, dedicated cleaning time. 


Our deep cleaning services checklist may change depending on the type of rooms and furniture you have in your home – there is no one-size-fits-all list – but you can expect the utmost care and attention to detail. 


All-season deep cleaning often includes a thorough cleaning of hard-to-reach places, such as underneath furniture and in-between seat cushions, floor and furniture polishing, as well as wiping down surfaces that don’t see a lot of use like ceiling fans and baseboards. Door frames, window frames, and individual decorations may also be dusted or wiped down depending on the material. 


Have a special request? Just let us know when you book your cleaning, and we’ll take care of it. 

What is Included in a Basic House Cleaning? 

A basic clean can differ based on your home’s individual space, as not every home or apartment is the same. Basic house cleaning is the most effective way to keep a home tidy and well-organized throughout the year. 


Basic cleaning services include the following: 

  • Cobwebs, dust, detritus removed from surfaces 

  • Floors vacuumed and mopped 

  • Counters, backsplashes, and outside of appliances cleaned 

  • Toilet, bathtubs, showers, and sinks cleaned 

  • Wastebaskets emptied 

  • Beds made 

Additionally, picking up clothes, pet toys, and other items may be necessary to begin basic cleaning services. Depending on the rooms included in the home cleaning, these services may change. Basic cleaning services may be done on a recurring or one-time basis depending on your custom schedule chosen when booking with us. 

What Can a Cleaner Do In 2 Hours?

There is a lot that can be done in 2 hours with cleaning services. Oakland house cleaners are some of the best in the industry, and we take pride in providing the best quality services possible every time. 


Depending on the rooms cleaned, a house cleaner may spend 2 hours mopping the floors, wiping down counter spaces, dusting, and vacuuming. 


Your house cleaners may also clean toilets, sinks, windows, appliances, and other commonly used surfaces. 


During deep cleaning services, the cleaner may pay special attention to areas of the home that are not maintained in a basic cleaning, such as polishing and treating floors and wooden surfaces, organizing the


refrigerator, or cleaning the inside of the oven. These tasks take time in addition to basic cleaning tasks and can keep your home in tip-top shape throughout the year without any extra attention from you.

How Long Does It Take to Clean a 3-Bedroom House? 

While the floorplan or specific needs of your home may vary, an easy way to estimate the time necessary for your home is by the number of bedrooms it has. 


A 3-bedroom house will take about 3 hours to clean completely. 2-bedroom homes or apartments typically take two hours to complete. 


This could take longer if your home has other types of rooms not included in the standard layout, such as half-baths or larger rooms with an open floorplan. Deep cleaning services may add 1-2 hours to this estimate depending on the number of rooms cleaned and how large the space is.
