There is a lot of stress that comes with cleaning a home; you don’t want to have to worry about the cleanliness of your home. When you walk through that front door, it is the cleaning to-do list that either smacks you in the face or weighs down the back of your mind. Wouldn’t it be nice to just walk into a clean home, to walk into one less thing to worry about? In an unclean home, it is not just the physical blemishes and obstacles that get in the way of enjoying your evening or getting to your priorities. It is the mental space that these distractions occupy. Instead of constantly worrying about what needs to be cleaned next, let us do the work for you, and you can rest easy knowing that when you walk inside after a long day of work, you can feel like you truly are right at home. So how should you get started with finding the best way to clean your home? There are a lot of factors that go into finding the perfect company for your needs. Here are some of the things you should be keeping in mind when deciding on who to call and where to start.
Define Your Goals
Before you jump into cleaning your home, it’s important to set up expectations and goals for what you want out of a cleaning service.
It’s been a while since you’ve been able to clean your home how you wanted, or you have an upcoming party, weekend guests or you just want to get things cleaned as thoroughly as possible — that’s when a deep cleaning may be in order. Whether it be to clean out a cluttered basement, empty out an attic, or refresh your office space, going with a smaller company focused on single gigs would be better for your needs. They’ll show up and get rid of everything you need gone, and then leave the long-term care up to you. This is a great choice if you’re not looking to invest in a relationship with your maid service. Check out our one-time deep cleaning checklist to get an idea of what we can do for you.
If you find your house or office building is consistently getting cluttered and you want to spend your time in a clean place, you may want to go with a company that specializes in recurring cleaning schedules. This way you can set up times for your place to get cleaned, and you’ll never have to worry again about letting clutter get in the way of your life. Blue Skies prides ourselves in the relationships we have developed with other local Cincinnati cleaning services! We source all of our cleaning supplies locally from Midwest Cleaning in Mason, Ohio. Fostering this relationship with your cleaners is a great way to ensure a long-lasting, sanitary home that puts your mind at ease, while also supporting your local community and connecting with the businesses that make your city great. Our interior home cleaning covers bathroom cleaning, bedroom cleaning, living/dining room cleaning, kitchen cleaning and other areas of the home. Blue Skies’ main focus is on recurring cleaning to make sure that your home stays in top shape regardless of your schedule. Those recurring schedules are weekly, every two weeks or every four weeks. We take extra time during the initial cleaning to get you off on the right foot. From there, we maintain the cleanliness of your home at each visit thereafter. We also have a maintenance cleaning checklist for you to look over and see if our services are just what you need.

Determine Your Budget
Cleaning your home isn’t always an inexpensive endeavor. However, if you want to make the most of your own time and money, creating a budget and laying out the essentials of what you need done is a worthwhile process to reduce costs. Price is not the only factor to consider when choosing a maid service, because at the end of the day, quality is the key to a satisfactory house cleaning. However, it is important to have some financial self-awareness to choose a service that will best fit your needs and your budget.
Always read the fine print when choosing cleaning services; some companies may include extra fees outside of the hourly cleaning rate that may wind up being more expensive than what you may have anticipated. For instance, Company X may charge $50 per hour, but they may include an extra one dollar payment per mile they drive to your house. Whereas if you look at Company Y, they charge a rate of $60 per hour, but may not charge a dime for travel fees. So when looking to create a budget, don’t just pick the lowest initial price point you see, but check for all the external fees you may be paying on top of the hourly cleaning fee.
It’s also important to note that for consumers looking to develop a relationship with their maid services, you can get better deals by entering contracts with these businesses. This is an important consideration when deciding between having a recurring cleaning service or a one-time gig.

However, just to give an idea of Blue Skies pricing, a typical 2500 square foot home cleaned once every month will cost around $184 per clean. Anything over 5000 square feet requires an in-person estimate by a production manager.

What types of maid services do we provide?
Blue Skies specializes in basic, routine home cleaning services as well as moving cleans and post-construction cleaning.
Besides our recurring and one-time deep clean services, Blue Skies has partnered with Sibcy Cline to provide quality move-in and move-out cleaning services. If you have bought a new place and want to complete a courtesy clean of your old home for the new owners, Blue Skies can come in to bring that old house back to life for those new owners to make new memories in. Our most intensive cleaning service is our move-in maid service, which will focus on scrubbing down every square inch of the place with high attention to detail and a finish that leaves the house spotless no matter where you look.
Apart from our moving cleaning services, Blue Skies has also partnered with Handyman Connections to make the post-construction cleaning process a breeze. We both know about all the dirt and dust that comes with a big construction project. Sawdust, footprints, paint, and dirt scattered throughout can make for a very tough and tedious clean-up. With our post-construction cleaning service, we can provide a pristine, deep cleanse that takes your new remodel from a dream to reality.
Are maid services worth it?
Getting your house professionally cleaned is a worthwhile investment. There’s no denying that having a freshly kept home is key to having a clear mind and an enjoyable living space. There’s also no denying that you can be overpaying for cleaning services if you don’t know what to look for. Whether it’s a big name company cleaning your home or a service based in a well-off neighborhood, there’s multiple factors that can cause you to pay too much.
While it is good to be concerned about overpaying, you also want to be sure that you aren’t paying for cheap quality work. It’s okay to spend a little more than what you were expecting if it means you are getting professional quality work from experts in the cleaning business. The cheapest residential cleaning services may not put the extra time and care into your home that you may need. For example, paying more could mean the difference between getting just a general dusting of your surfaces to dusting on every edge of every picture frame, behind the TV, etc. This is why it is important to know what you want out of your maid services, and coming up with a plan that makes your goals clear.
The real reason why people pay more for their cleaning services is not just for a clean home, but for more time to spend with their family and doing the things they enjoy rather than worrying about the stress of maintaining their home. Investing in a cleaning service gives you the freedom in life that you desire.
