The one line definition to answer this most asked question is regular cleaning is what most people do on a regular basis and deep cleaning is done after every 6 months to a year. Also, regular cleaning can be done within a couple of hours whereas deep cleaning may take the whole day in cleaning the every corner f the home or workplace.

Regular cleaning -

As obvious from the name, regular cleaning is done on regular basis like daily or weekly. Often times, it is the daily need of a residential and commercial building.

Regular cleaning often covers things like -

  •        Cleaning things like sink, mirror, bath and toilet.
  •         Sanitizing bathroom and restroom area.
  •         Sweeping and mopping the floors.
  •         Dusting and washing the windows.
  •         Emptying the dustbins and sanitizing them.
  •         Tidying up
  •         Cleaning the kitchen - wiping down work surfaces, cupboard doors, hob etc.


deep cleaning -

Deep cleaning is very different than regular cleaning and it is often done on annual basis or twice a year. In addition, it is also an integral need when a tenant moves in or out, which is why deep cleaning is also referred as an end of tenancy clean.

Deep cleaning often covers things like -

  • Cleaning and removing the stains from kitchen appliances like microwave, air conditioner etc.
  • Cleaning and washing the high windows.
  •  Cleaning inside of window frames and patio doors.
  • Cutting through the grime that builds up on the daily used items and under the sink.
  • Full and deep dusting including all the all the corners of rooms for cobweb.
  • Scale removal from all kitchen tiles, bathroom tiles, taps, shower heads etc.


These are just a general set of services that crate difference between a regular cleaning and deep cleaning. The actual list of services can be anything depending on your certain needs and budget. Hence, while hiring a cleaning company to do the job for you, be sure to draw up a checklist and crosscheck your needs with the service, mark as covered and included in the standard service package of a regular cleaning and deep cleaning.
