Speed Clean, Light Clean or Deep Clean?

callie25July 15, 2010

For those who professionally clean, how long do you typically spend cleaning a 2500 sq. ft. home? I've read other posts and noted the comparisons on those who clean in a hurry vs those who are thorough. I consider myself to be thorough, so for me it's difficult to complete a house in less than 4-6 hrs. I want my customer to be happy with the results. Any tips on making the job flow smoother without doing a hurried up job?

I am not a professional cleaner, however, time would depend on what you do.

Some cleaners dust, vacuum, mop, clean counters, toilet, tub/showers, feather dust window blinds, change beds, empty trash only. They would spend less time than others who additionally clean oven, frig, windows, sliding glass door, dust baseboards, sweep porch and/or patio, etc.

I have a 2500 sq. ft. house and my cleaner team (husband/wife) takes 1 1/2 hrs to do the first listed above. They take no breaks and are steady workers.
