A. A standard house cleaning includes vacuuming your floors (which may or may not be inclusive of polishing), scrubbing sinks, countertops, and floors. The professionals also dust surfaces, but if you have fragile items like antiques, or need special cleaners, you will have to pay more. Some professionals provide other tasks as part of their regular cleaning service, for example, changing bed linens, loading your dishwasher, cleaning your stovetop and inside the oven. However, most of these services do not cover the exterior of your home – even the outside of the windows. The cleaners do not do your laundry, dishes, or wash walls unless you’ve agreed on this for an extra charge. Finally, they won’t pick after you. If your floor has scattered books, toys, shoes and so forth, they cannot vacuum it, unless they are working by the hour.
