What is the difference between Regular Domestic Cleaning and Spring Cleaning?
A regular domestic clean is a clean of the areas of the home that you have daily contact with. For example, in the kitchen it’s work surfaces, hob, washing dishes, and mopping the floors.
A spring clean is a much deeper clean using a team of cleaners and professional materials and equipment. It means cleaning all of the corners of the house that you don’t get to on a regularly, which means it takes much longer. For example, in the kitchen it would involve cleaning the oven, inside the fridge, inside all the cupboards, internal windows etc. Spring cleaning may also include professional carpet cleaning.
