Cleaning routine 101: how often should you mop the kitchen & vacuum vents?

One of the most frequently asked questions we get from our clients refers to how often should they do (or call us for) different chores inside and around the house, such as moping the kitchen & bathroom floors, vacuuming vents & woodwork, or cleaning the chimney & fireplace. To make life easier for them, as we normally do, we’ve decided to compile the whole list in this article. Therefore, without further ado, we present you with the ultimate cleaning schedule, with additional information afterward.

Of course, this is just indicative data and you are free to change it, if you notice something is dirtier than it should be, or if something doesn’t work as it should – this is a clear sign something is wrong. If you decide to DIY and clean everything for yourself, you should consider the fact that it will take you a long time, especially if you are not used or inclined to this activity, and you also have to buy all the cleaning products you need.

On the other hand, if you value peace of mind and high-quality work, you should always contact us. Generally, when it comes to daily or weekly chores from the list above, we think it’s safe to say you can DIY, but when it comes to monthly or yearly tasks, you should let us do the job. As you already know, attention to detail is our strength, we’re always on time with proper planning, and we care about our clients’ budgets and needs. Our goal is to exceed your expectations while bringing you peace of mind through the quality of our work. Reliability, trustworthiness, and high-quality standards define us!
