Portland House Cleaning Services

Recurring Cleans

Sparkling Palaces offers recurring house cleaning services to keep your home spotless and beautifully maintained. We service most of Portland, OR, and all of Lake Oswego. We provide detailed and eco-friendly ongoing cleaning on a weekly, bi-weekly and monthly basis. Explore our services to find the cleaning that works best for you.

A lot of our clients prefer us cleaning their homes every other week. This is a good balance to maintain a sparkling clean house all the time. No matter what level of service you choose, our house cleaners will delight in keeping it meticulously clean! Our house cleaners - or "Sparklers" as we call them - love recurring cleaning jobs because they take pride in keeping these homes sparkling clean. We do our best to send the same Sparklers to recurring cleans. This way our team gets to know the house very well, and can excel with highly detailed cleaning.

Take a look at the steps below to see how easy it is to get started with recurring cleaning services by Sparkling Palaces. Starting with us is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

How We Sparkle

What We do

Customized Cleaning

We believe your house cleaning deserves a personal touch. Before any cleaning is done, the owner Amy will walk through your home with you, listen to your needs and customize your cleaning. We believe this first step is the foundation for a great ongoing relationship!

Quality Driven

Quality is our highest priority. We value your feedback and want to ensure we're always providing you cleaning that goes above and beyond. After each cleaning we'll send out a quick 20 second survey to rate your cleaning. These surveys help us fine-tune your custom cleaning.

Cleaning Checklist

We check off every single item on this list to make sure your house is sparkling. Our Recurring Sparkling Checklist has been exquisitely designed from over 18 years of cleaning the historic houses of Portland. We follow this checklist for weekly, bi-weekly and monthly house cleaning.  

Our signature Extra Sparkle is always included with every house cleaning visit! Your Sparkler will find a 5-10 minute “extra” for your home that will be sure to delight you.  It's a little something outside of our checklist, to show that we love going above and beyond with our cleaning!

Initial Deep Cleaning

All of our first-time clients start with an initial deep clean that we call the Transformation Sparkling! We do this to bring the house up to our meticulous cleaning standards. This deep cleaning gets things ready for our recurring house cleaning services. For the Transformation Sparkling we cover everything that is on the recurring checklist as well as deep cleaning tasks that include: hand-dusting blinds, dusting of high surfaces, detail-cleaning white woodwork and trim, steam mopping tiled floors and detailing grout. These deep cleans typically take 2-3 times longer than recurring service and are scheduled as an all-day job.

The initial deep cleaning is the perfect time to request having our Extra Cleaning Tasks done. These tasks include cleaning inside the refrigerator and deep cleaning inside the oven. Let us know ahead of time and we will add it to the work order.
