what is regular domestic cleaning

Below, we’re answering what is domestic cleaning and what you can expect from a domestic cleaning session. We’ll also explore the differences between domestic cleaning services and other common cleaning services that people use to help you choose the right cleaning service for your home.

What is domestic cleaning: What to expect from domestic cleaning?

Domestic cleaning is a type of cleaning service to help with the weekly cleaning chores or one-off cleans that you don’t have time or expertise to do. These time-consuming household cleaning tasks can often pile up, so home cleaning services can be used to help.

The cleaning duties of a domestic cleaner vary depending on your weekly needs. A consistent cleaning service is usually enough for most households to maintain a high standard of cleaning throughout the home.

What do regular domestic cleaning services include?

Domestic cleaners will do a variety of cleaning tasks to help you manage the cleanliness of your home. This could be vacuuming carpets, wiping the kitchen surfaces, dusting, emptying bins, cleaning the bathroom or changing bedding, for example. Home cleaning services may also include things like ironing, stacking the dishwasher, putting the washing on, folding laundry, making beds, mopping floors etc.

House cleaners are there to help with the everyday cleaning tasks that need to be done around the home. A typical regular domestic cleaning session is two hours per week. So, a cleaner won’t be able to do things like oven cleaning, carpet cleaning or deep cleaning during these sessions. If you feel that your home is in need of a thorough cleaning, then you can get a one-off deep clean as a separate service.

Difference between domestic and End of Tenancy Cleaning?

It is best to think of regular house cleaning as a cosmetic cleaning of your home. The cleaners will vacuum, for example, but won’t move the furniture to get every area of the carpet.

An end-of-tenancy clean, though, is much just like a deep cleaning of the property. Every inch of the property will be cleaned perfectly. This includes the kitchen cabinets, behind the toilet, and every other commonly missed area. Our cleaners even use a cleaning checklist to ensure we don’t miss any areas that could result in additional charges to our customers.

Carpet cleaning, oven cleaning and window cleaning can also be added to end of tenancy cleans to ensure that the property looks perfect for handover.

While our professional home cleaning service is ideal for general cleaning help around the home or for a spring clean, our end of tenancy cleans are the best option to use if you are moving out of your rented property. They ensure an exceptionally good cleaning of the whole property and can help you avoid any cleaning charge being added to your deposit.

Average domestic cleaning service rates in the UK

The average hourly rate you pay for house cleaning services in the UK at the moment is between £15 and £25 per hour. This depends on the quality of the cleaning company and the area you live in.

Do domestic cleaners need to be insured?

While there is no law that states a cleaner must have insurance, any good quality cleaning company will have various insurance policies to protect their customers and staff. If any damage occurs in our customer’s homes during one of our cleaning sessions, we have the insurance to cover all damage and resolve the matter quickly.

Can a domestic cleaner customise their cleaning jobs?

Yes, they can. Well, the domestic cleaners at Cleaning Express are more than happy to customise the cleaning services they provide to clients; some cleaners may vary, though.

Sadly, our regular cleaners can’t offer a one-off deep clean, for example, during a standard house cleaning session, but you can book a deep cleaning session as a separate appointment.

Why are end of tenancy cleaning hourly rates so much higher than a standard domestic cleaning service? Well, there is a good reason, and today, we’re finding out why.

Regular domestic cleaning prices in London

During these regular cleaning sessions, a cleaner will come in and do all the weekly cleaning chores for which you don’t have time: hoovering, mopping, dusting, cleaning the kitchen, changing the beds, etc.

Why the difference?

Why are the end of tenancy prices so high

End of tenancy cleaning services aren’t the same as regular cleaning sessions. End of tenancy cleaning is a much more involved operation, often including a team of cleaners, not just one person. They are also professionally trained cleaners using professional cleaning equipment, like carpet cleaning machines. The cleaning team also needs to be very flexible. Usually, end of tenancy cleaning is booked in without a lot of notice, and the cleaners must adapt to meet the needs of the customer and the landlord.

A lot of landlords and estate agents in London also use end of tenancy cleaning checklists. They are to confirm that the tenant has cleaned every square inch of the property. Because if they have missed anything, the landlord will need to hire professional cleaners to put things right. Estate agents and landlords have raised the standards and expect even neglected properties to look fantastic so that they avoid refurbishing the place. Unfortunately, this results in more disputes with cleaning companies, which has pushed the prices up.

That is why most professional cleaning service companies (including Cleaning Express) offer guarantees for their cleaning work during the end of tenancy cleans. So, if your landlord notices something your tenancy cleaners missed, you can phone them and get it put right, with no additional cost.

End of tenancy cleaning takes much longer than regular domestic cleaning because it is much more involved. Think of a regular cleaning service as keeping your home look brilliant, neat and tidy. And an end of tenancy clean, ensuring no signs of someone living on the property anymore. It wipes the slate clean and allows new tenants to move in the same day.


Can I use regular domestic cleaning services instead of the end of tenancy cleaning services?

Regular cleaning sessions do a fantastic job at keeping your home looking fabulous while you live there. A two-hour cleaning session once a week ensures your home looks spotless and feels welcoming.

However, a regular cleaner doesn’t have time to do every single cleaning task that is needed. For example, if you ask a cleaner to hoover, they will, but don’t have time to move the sofa and other furniture. So, there is likely some dust underneath your sofa while your house looks immaculate.

With an end of tenancy clean, though, every single area of every single room is cleaned to perfection. That includes kitchen cabinets, behind the toilet, the wardrobes and everything else most of us don’t clean weekly. That takes a team of cleaners a lot of hours to do. Our cleaner’s work is then tested with a checklist to ensure everything has been taken care of for you.

end of tenancy cleaning costRegular domestic cleaning is an excellent service and keeps your home looking great week in and week out. However, the end of tenancy cleaning services hit the reset button. They are designed to make it appear that no one has ever lived in the house. That takes time, experience, a team of cleaners and a lot of hard work. And that is why end of tenancy cleaning services in London cost the prices they do.

office carpet cleaners

With more and more businesses offering an open plan, cool and exciting environment to work in, being an office worker is pretty awesome right now. However, offices need to look good to ensure everyone who visits and works in them feels good too.

Regular office cleaning services can go a long way in making an office look clean and tidy. But sometimes, you need to pull out the big cleaning guns. And today, we’re talking about one of the biggest guns in our cleaning arsenal: carpet cleaning. Carpet cleaning is an extremely valuable tool in offices. Before we tell you why, let’s first look at exactly what carpet cleaning is, shall we?

What is carpet cleaning?

We’re sure your regular cleaner vacuums the office carpet regularly, right? Well, carpet cleaning is a whole other type of cleaning. This service shampoos the carpet and draws loads more dirt, dust and grime out of the carpet than hoovering alone. Even when it comes to short pile carpets, like most found in offices, hoovering can only do so much. There will be a layer of dust, dirt and grime that a regular vacuum can’t reach.

A carpet cleaning machine forces cleaning products deep into the carpet and uses powerful suction to draw it back out. This process makes your carpet look brand new again. Now, you may be thinking that regular hoovering is doing a good job at keeping your carpet looking fresh and new. Well, take a look under any piece of furniture in your office that has been there for a while. You may be pretty shocked at how different the high-traffic areas look compared to the fresh carpet.

By using commercial carpet cleaning services in your office, you can ensure that the carpet throughout the office looks as good as the day it was laid. This has many advantages, here are just a few!

The benefits of carpet cleaning in offices

benefits of carpet cleaning in offices

It keeps high-traffic areas looking great

We mentioned this benefit above, but it’s worth repeating. Carpets in high-traffic areas in offices can quickly fade and look older than they are. Carpet cleaning massages the fibres in the carpet, gets rid of any dirt and dust within the carpet and can bring it back to life. Remember, these high-traffic areas are often the first place important clients and customers see when they enter your office. You need these spaces to look as good as the rest of your office to set the tone straight away.

Give a wonderful first impression of your business

Having a clean and tidy office is excellent. Every office should be lovely and tidy. However, when you have important clients coming to the office to make a business deal that is really important for everyone involved, it is best to go above and beyond with the regular office cleaning.

Having your carpet cleaned shows your clients that your business pays attention to the small details. It shows them that you’re serious about everything you do, including keeping your office looking great. It offers an inviting space to walk into, rather than the faded, jaded, old carpet that your competitor has.

Adds to a nice environment for your employees

We all know the reason your office looks the way it does. Yes, it is partly for offering wonderful impressions to your clients. But the other reason is for your employees. Your employees deserve a b

rilliant place to work hard for you. Well, if you’ve spent a lot of money kitting out the office into a cool space for your employees to work in, it is well worth keeping the investment going. Even after a few months, office carpets can fade. Still, carpet cleaning services can bring them back to life and keep your staff’s space looking and feeling amazing.

Reduces allergies

office carpet cleaning

Carpets hold a lot of dust and grime, more than we feel comfortable sharing with you here. Regular carpet cleaning sessions in offices can greatly reduce the risk of your employees getting allergies.

When the pollen count is high, your employees can track pollen into the office and set off everyone’s allergies. By cleaning the carpet regularly during periods where allergies are high, you greatly reduce the number of employees affected. This means your staff will be very happy, less snotty and teary, and you may even reduce sick days as a result.

If you’d like to have your office carpet professionally cleaned by NCCA certified professionals and you are in London, Cleaning Express can help. We offer carpet cleaning services across the city and can get your office’s carpet looking fresh and new in no time.

what tasks can domestic cleaners doDomestic cleaners can help you massively with the daily cleaning tasks that you don’t have time to do. A lot of people aren’t too sure what actually a person carrying out domestic cleaning can do, though. Some people are surprised when cleaners inform them that they can’t do certain tasks during their visit. So, today, we’re looking at what domestic cleaners can do for you. Don’t worry, though, if a cleaning task you need doing isn’t mentioned below, Cleaning Express likely has a cleaning service perfect for your needs.

What is a domestic cleaner?

A domestic cleaner is someone that can come round to your home and help with daily chores that you don’t have time to do. Things like dusting, or cleaning up the kitchen after breakfast, for example. When you book a cleaner through Cleaning Express, you are given an instruction sheet with loads of cleaning tasks on it. Filling out this form lets the cleaner know what cleaning tasks you need them to do during that visit. So, for example, you may need them to vacuum, wash up and change the beds. If a task changes (you have time to do the washing up, but not put the washing on, for example), you can let the cleaner know, and they can do the other task instead. A domestic cleaner is there is help you do the daily stuff; they can’t offer anything other than daily chores, though.

The tasks that domestic cleaners do include:

Changing beds
Tidy the kitchen
Mop floors
Tidy and clean the bathroom
Folding clothes
Washing clothes
Stacking and emptying dishwashers or washing up
Emptying bins
Watering flowers

Cleaning Express and our cleaners are generally pretty flexible when it comes to cleaning tasks. The cleaner you get each week from Cleaning Express doesn’t need to do the same cleaning duties every week. They can do the cleaning that you don’t have time to do. When you book your cleaning appointment, you can request additional cleaning tasks, and if the cleaner has time, they will do them. Our cleaners are here to help you and will do so within reason.

What can’t a domestic cleaner do?

Domestic cleaners don’t offer carpet cleaning or upholstery cleaning services. They also can’t do end of tenancy or deep cleaning services. This is because their time with each customer is limited. However, Cleaning Express can offer all of these cleaning services and more. So, if there’s a party coming up, for example, and would like a deep clean before or after the party, get in touch. Cleaning Express offers every cleaning service you can imagine. So just because your domestic cleaner can’t offer those services during their visit doesn’t mean Cleaning Express can’t.

deep clean, removing pets hair


If there are pets at home, we ask that our customers make us aware of them before our cleaners visit. We do this to ensure the cleaners have no surprises on the day and so that they can focus on the job. We may ask you to keep the animals in a separate room while we do our cleaning tasks, so they don’t distract our cleaner.

Any speciality surfaces, decor or appliances

Some marble, natural stone, fabrics and wood can be very sensitive to certain chemicals. If you have any fabric, décor, art or wooden objects in your home that could react to our cleaning chemicals, please let us know.

Choosing the best cleaner for your home can be tricky. Of course, you want a cleaner that is reliable, trustworthy, and that does an excellent job at the cleaning tasks you don’t have time to do. And if that cleaner can fit their cleaning duties around your schedule and charge a competitive price, that is the dream, isn’t it? If you’re looking for a cleaner to clean your home in London, here are some things to consider and how to choose the best cleaner for you.

How to find the right cleanerAsk for a recommendation

If your friends use a cleaner or a cleaning company, ask them about their experience. They will be able to provide a real-world perspective on how that cleaner performs their job. If your friend uses a self-employed cleaner, though, it is worth bearing in mind that many self-employed cleaners only operate over a small area. So, while that cleaner will be able to clean your friend’s home, they may not cover your area. However, asking a friend for a cleaning recommendation is always a good starting off point.

Look online

Most self-employed cleaners and cleaning companies have some form of online presence nowadays. This could be a Facebook page or a website. Take a look at the cleaning services they provide and the reviews that their customers have left on the site. You can also send the cleaner a message if you want to know more about their services and their availability. You can use local Facebook groups as well to ask for advice from people in your area about the best cleaners and cleaning companies in the area.

Use vetted and insured cleaners

A self-employed cleaner can only really be vetted by their previous clients and their reviews. Domestic cleaners that work for a cleaning company like Cleaning Express, for example, are vetted on much more than this. We fully-trained our cleaners and vet their performance throughout their time with us. This ensures that all of our cleaners are fully trained in all of our cleaning services.

A cleaner must have insurance too. This will typically be liability insurance and ensures that if they damage anything in your home while they are cleaning, they can replace or repair it. We have the best insurance that money can buy.  We can ensure that if any of our cleaners do happen to damage any of our customer’s items. (It is extremely rare, but accidents do occur). Then our customers have peace of mind and a quick resolution to the issue.

Choosing between a self-employed cleaner or a cleaning companyChoosing housekeeper

Using a self-employed cleaner is a great way of ensuring that only one cleaner will enter your home. You will get to know that cleaner and form a trusting working relationship with them. However, if your cleaner goes on holiday or gets sick, they won’t be able to clean your property. At Cleaning Express, our cleaners have set areas that they work in. This means the cleaner that comes to your home is typically the same person. However, if they are ever on holiday or they get sick, cover can quickly be arranged, so your home or business still gets cleaned.

Of course, as a cleaning company ourselves, we are a bit bias, as to whether a self-employed cleaner or a cleaning company is best. But we provide cleaning services that offer the personal relationship you receive if you choose a self-employed cleaner, but with the backing of a family-run business to ensure that our customers always receive a superior clean from trustworthy, reliable cleaners at a competitive price.

Another factor for consideration is that every cleaner has its preferences and specialisation. Some cleaners are experienced only in domestic sector, some cleaners work in offices and commercial premises. Some cleaning operatives prefer deep cleaning work or carrying out end of tenancy cleaning or after-building cleaning.
