What is a one-off deep clean?

A one-off deep clean is a tailored cleaning service available to all of our cleaning customers. Our deep clean team can come into your home and give it a thorough clean from top to bottom. This is perfect for if you’ve just moved into a new property and the last owners have left it in a bit of a state. It is also great if you haven’t had too much time to clean recently and need a helping hand getting your home back to your high standards.

The best part about our one-off deep clean services is that they are totally tailored to your needs. So, if you need our deep clean team to come in and clean your carpets and upholstery while ensuring that your home is dust-free, they can. If you don’t need the carpet cleaning, but do need hardwood flooring mopped and disinfected, as well as the fridge and the oven cleaning, the deep clean team can do it.

Our one-off deep clean services are done with all of your belongings in place. We will, of course, reach neglected areas during the cleaning process to ensure your home is as clean as possible. However, there is no need to remove any of your belongings, we will clean them, under them and around them.
