Cleaning is not so cut and dry. There is really a method to it. You need to maintain all of your cleaning on a regular basis. You can never really get ahead on cleaning. There will always be something that is getting dirty and dusty. If you plan to call a cleaning company or maid service be aware of what servces you are getting.
There are basically two variations of cleaning. General cleaning, which is basically a surface wipedown. Or, a deep cleaning where you cleaning every crack and crevise.
