With flexible scheduling and a strictly vetted team of specialists, you can be confident that your home, apartment, or condo will be cleaned safely and securely every time.
Our Housekeepers Ensure Every Corner of Your Home Is Clean
Cleaning and sanitizing every nook and cranny in your home, our housekeepers go above and beyond to ensure every inch is spotless. This includes:
- Cleaning cupboards, drawers, and cabinets (when requested)
- Sanitizing toilets, sinks, bathtubs, and showers
- Vacuuming and/or mopping all floors (wood, vinyl, tile, etc.) with proper equipment
- Spot cleaning windows, doors, and frames
- Dusting furniture, countertops, light fixtures, and ceiling fans
- Safely wiping down microwaves, ovens, ranges, and other appliances
Highly trained and attentive to detail, our professional cleaners provide countless benefits. More than anything, they will take care of a notoriously time-consuming chore so you can spend more time doing activities you love. There is nothing better than coming home to a pristine home.
Our Professional Housekeeping Services Are Perfect For:
Do you live alone? Are you a working or a stay-at-home parent? Do you have multiple pets? Whatever case applies to you, The Cleaning Authority has a housekeeping package that can satisfy your situation. If you don’t have the time to constantly deep clean bathroom and kitchen surfaces, vacuum floors, or mop, we will gladly lend a professional hand.
If you have a vacation property that is only seasonally in use, it may be hard to keep clean. This is especially true if you live a considerable distance away. However, failing to upkeep any property will lead to many negative consequences. Insects, cobwebs, rust, mold, and dust can accumulate while you are away. Luckily, we can clean your vacation home from top to bottom. By routinely cleaning it on our rotating schedule, we strive to make your property immaculate and ready when you need it.
If you are a landlord or an owner of multiple rentals, you likely lack the time to maintain all your properties. It is hard enough to keep track of rent and deal with your business's other aspects. Fortunately, our cleaning crew can come to the rescue – revitalizing your countertops, sinks, toilets, bathtubs, ceiling fans, carpets/rugs, wood/tile flooring, appliances, doors, and windows with thoroughness and efficiency.
Cleaning a condo can be deceivingly labor-intensive. Like a single-family home, some condos can contain up to three or four bedrooms, a large kitchen and living room, and multiple bathrooms to boot. Let us take care of your housekeeping for all this square footage. We will prioritize areas most in need, such as kitchen and bathrooms, to prevent infestations and unsanitary conditions from materializing.
Apartments may be smaller than most single-family residences, but they still deserve TLC and top-to-bottom cleaning. Whether you own a one-bedroom apartment or a sprawling loft, we will thoroughly clean your space front and back. One significant perk of apartment cleaning is the costs are usually less expensive due to minimal square footage.
Our Housekeeping Cleaning Services
We will vacuum every accessible inch of your floors. If requested and possible, we can even move furniture, such as couches and small bedside tables, to help ensure no area is left untouched. Our vacuums are equipped with HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filtration. These filters trap dirt and allergens without redistributing them back into the air. They can also trap dust mite droppings, mold, pet dander, pollen, and other fine particles.
Our microfiber dusting cloths are environmentally responsible and incredibly efficient. Durable and versatile, these cloths can thoroughly clean a variety of surfaces. The microscopic fibers cling to dust and dirt particles, transforming an entire area with a single swipe. By washing and recycling microfiber cloths, we are equally effective without creating environmental waste.
Mopping has many valuable benefits. Here are four:
- Mopping sanitizes floors, which are dirtier than most imagine
- Mopping helps reduce allergies by getting rid of dust, dander, and pollen that silently piles up
- Mopping can help prevent scratches
- Mopping can help make your floor look shiny and new
By sanitizing the surfaces of your home, our cleaning technicians can kill and remove most bacteria within seconds. This has the obvious benefit of reducing your interaction with germs. Helping remove allergy, asthma, and illness-causing bacteria from your home, sanitation methods are a great way to prevent microbe-related issues from arising.
Introducing the Detail-Clean Rotation System
Our Detail-Clean Rotation System is a brilliantly designed cleaning program we’ve refined over the years to suit clients’ needs. Dividing our efforts into four zones, we keep everything consistently cleaned. Our Rotation System begins with two fully detailed cleans:
- Clean A entails a Detail-Clean of your kitchen and bathrooms
- Clean B entails a Detail-Clean of your living, sleeping, and dining areas
After these two initial cleans, we rotate our focus: performing Detail-Cleans on a cyclical schedule. Each of these visits includes a thorough cleaning of all other rooms as well. Upon request, we can happily provide a Detail-Clean of your whole house every time. However, this effective strategy has worked wonders for years.
When it comes to cleaning bathrooms, we are unintimidated. We work hard to help eliminate germs and bacteria to maximize good hygiene. We will scrub dirty grout, hand wipe baseboards and window sills, and sanitize your shower fixtures, toilet, faucets, and sink with quality, environmentally responsible solutions. Removing clumps of hair from drains and washing mirrors, no section will be left unattended.
Everyone should sleep in a clean and tidy room. We can help in a myriad of ways, including:
- Dusting and decluttering your closet
- Vacuuming your wooden floor
- Deep-cleaning and mopping after vacuuming
- Cleaning individual knickknacks
- Hand wiping delicate furniture and upholstery
With our cleaning technicians regularly stopping by, you will be able to sleep soundly knowing sanitized surfaces surround you.
Clean and organized spaces are strongly associated with decreased stress and anxiety. Cluttered and messy rooms are often perceived both consciously and unconsciously as “unfinished business.” This can negatively affect mental and physical health. By thoroughly wiping down door frames, window ledges, pieces of furniture, and upholstery, not to mention deep cleaning your baseboards, ceiling, and flooring, we can refresh your living spaces.
It is crucial to keep the place you cook, store food, and eat immaculately clean. No one wants to find their pantries and cabinets infested with bugs, maggots, or cockroaches. One great way to keep insects at bay is by keeping surfaces constantly clean. We can make this happen by:
- Spraying down and wiping your counters with environmentally responsible products
- Mopping and vacuuming your kitchen floors
- Using convenient tools to clean under, behind, and beside ovens, dishwashers, and refrigerators where possible
- Washing and scrubbing your appliances and sink
What Should I Expect to Pay for Housekeeping Service?
The cost of residential cleaning services revolves around many factors, including:
- Where you live
- The size of your house
- The frequency of cleaning you request
- The services you include
- The inclusion of any add-ons or special requests
With such variability, our house cleaning experts can visit your home for a complimentary walkthrough and consultation. Afterward, we will offer a free estimate that is based on all these factors. No matter what the circumstances are, our prices are fair, straightforward, and highly competitive.
The Condition of a Space
A significant factor that affects the cost of housekeeping is the condition of a property. Prices will vary for post-construction and move-in/move-out cleanings due to the increased labor and demands of the job. After our assessment, we can determine the scope of the task at hand and the materials needed to provide an accurate estimate.
Size of Areas Needed to be Cleaned
The square footage of a property is a major cost factor. More space and more surfaces will require more time, effort, and cleaning supplies. That said, The Cleaning Authority team is experienced and capable of handling residential properties of every size, and we are happy to try to figure out a solution that works within your budget.
The Materials Required
The cleaning materials we need to perform the job will affect the price. Our specialists are trained and prepared to perform housekeeping for homes that recently underwent demolition and installation projects. We have the equipment needed to dispose of unused scraps and hazardous materials, polish brand-new flooring and walls, remove adhesive stickers, and clean masonry, including tiles and brickwork. Upon request, we can handle labor-intensive housekeeping assignments: cleaning and disposing of wiring, nails, metal shavings, and other leftover debris.
Unique Features Requiring Special Attention
Every space is unique and different. We all have our prized fixtures, pieces of art and/or furniture, and valuable electronics. Respectful of this fact, our specialists will carefully and fastidiously work around any belongings that need special care and extra delicacy.
Frequency of Cleaning Visits
We are here to clean your home on a schedule that works for you. We offer a wide range of options and can modify our scheduled appointments as needed. Our cleaning packages include:
- Weekly Cleanings
- Bi-Weekly Cleanings
- Tri-Weekly Cleanings
- Monthly Cleanings
- Quarterly Cleanings
- One-Time Cleans
- Move-In or Move-Out Cleanings
- A La Carte Cleaning Services
Our bi-weekly and weekly options are highly recommended, but we can accommodate whatever works best for you.
Do You Have Pets?
If you have household pets, our housekeeping services are incredibly beneficial. As already noted, our vacuums come with HEPA filtration systems that help to successfully remove pet hair and dander from floors and surfaces. Our microfiber cloths also help to remove pet-related allergens. Finally, we rely on environmentally responsible products that deeply clean pet accidents, such as urine stains, without exposing your family or pets to harsh chemicals.
Is Housekeeping Worth It?
Leading hectic lives and constantly multitasking, people simply don't have time to deep clean their homes multiple times a week. With work responsibilities, parenting, and extracurricular activities, the last thing anyone wants to do is vacuum and mop. Our housekeepers will help keep everything functioning smoothly and ensure a clean home when you want to relax. We handle the tough, labor-intensive chores and bring our supplies so you can work on more enjoyable projects.
Cleaning My Property Myself VS Hiring a Housekeeper
What housekeeping offers for many households is a supplemental service. We are here to take care of your grimy, back-breaking house chores so you can shorten your weekly to-do list. Many clients have told us that housekeeping inspires them to stay more organized and tidier throughout the week. Just knowing a cleaning crew will routinely take care of intensive chores like mopping, vacuuming, hand wiping, and scrubbing can be reinvigorating. Together, we make a great team!
Hiring a Professional Housekeeping Company VS Hiring an Independent Housekeeper
The Cleaning Authority proudly employs every housekeeper and never relies on independent contractors for many reasons. By hiring our employees, you receive the benefits of:
- Cleaning technicians who are screened with extensive background checks
- A cleaning company that is bonded and insured
- Cleaning pros who are certified and have graduated from vetted training programs
We take these precautions, so you won’t have to worry about the safety of your home.

Housekeeping Services FAQ
What Are the Two Types of Housekeeping?
There are two types of professional housekeeping: institutional and domestic. Institutional housekeeping applies to commercial lodgings and short-term residential spaces, like hotels, resorts, and inns. Domestic housekeeping applies to permanent residences like houses or apartments. With the rise of Airbnb®, the line between them has been slightly blurred. At The Cleaning Authority, our housekeeping service provides cleaning for both institutional/commercial clients and domestic clients. As a result, our clients receive the thorough cleaning, tools, and skills you'd expect from a highly trained housekeeper for large commercial spaces.
What's the Difference Between a Housekeeper and a Maid?
Entry-level maids tidy up and lightly clean surfaces, while professional housekeepers comprehensively sanitize every square inch. Our housekeepers partake in high-level, heavy-duty tasks. Going deeper than maids do, they scrub and scrape, removing buildup in and on floorboards, kitchens, bathrooms, furniture, windows, and upholstery.
Does Housekeeping Help with COVID-19?
Whether we want to admit it or not, we all bring germs into our homes. With the reality that COVID-19 can survive on surfaces for extended periods of time, having professional housekeepers sanitize your place is a great choice. Some of our locations now offer customers the option of having their cleaners use products listed on the EPA's Registered Antimicrobial Products for Use Against Novel Coronavirus (these products may not meet ECOLOGO® or EPA Safer Choice standards discussed above).
Can I Reschedule My Housekeeping Appointment?
Give any of our representatives a call, and we will promptly assist you with rescheduling a housekeeping appointment. You can also use our MyTCA app to reschedule if your request is at least 48 hours in advance. Here’s how:
- Click the “Next Cleaning” home page banner or select “Cleanings” on the bottom menu
- Select the arrow next to the current cleaning date
- Tap the top-right icon (3 vertical dots)
- Select “Reschedule Cleaning”
- Please select at least two alternative options before pressing “Confirm”
- We will reach out to finalize the change
