When it comes to maintaining a clean and tidy home, you have two options: hiring a professional cleaning company or hiring a solo cleaner. While both options have their merits, it’s essential to understand the benefits to make an informed decision. Here’s a look at the pros and cons:

Hiring a Cleaning Company


  1. Professionalism: Cleaning companies, like Esprit Cleaning, employ trained and vetted professionals who handle various cleaning tasks with expertise and precision. All we do is clean, so we know our stuff.
  2. Reliability: With a company, you benefit from a consistent service. Even if one cleaner is unavailable, backup plans or cleaners  ensure your home remains spotless.
  3. Insurance and Bonding: Reputable and professional cleaning companies are insured, providing protection against accidents, damages, or theft.
  4. Flexibility: Companies can accommodate diverse scheduling needs, offering daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly cleanings tailored to your lifestyle.
  5. Range of Services: Beyond standard cleaning, companies can service any size home, provide deep or detailed cleaning, specialised floor care, pressure washing, and window cleaning, ensuring comprehensive and quality care for your home.


  1. Cost: You might pay a little extra per hour but the investment pays off in terms of professionalism, value, reliability, and expertise in services.
  2. Less Personalised Service: You will almost always have the same cleaner, we (ESPRIT Cleaning) like to assign the same cleaner for as long as possible, wherever possible.  At Esprit Cleaning, we prioritise making your home feel uniquely cared for each visit. We focus exclusively on residential cleaning, ensuring a personal touch akin to that of a solo cleaner. But of course, sometimes people get sick or life happens and in that case, there’s always a back up plan or cleaner to ensure you don’t miss your regular clean
  3. Communication: At ESPRIT Cleaning, we strive to maintain clear and direct communication to address your needs promptly. Besides the cleaner, there is only one extra layer of communication with your bookings manager. At the moment, that’s me Tahnya.
  4. Less Direct Accountability: Holding a company accountable might seem challenging, but our commitment to customer satisfaction ensures any issues are addressed immediately. You also have the right to direct your cleaner to areas you would like them to focus on.

Hiring a Solo Cleaner


  1. Personalised Service: Solo cleaners often end up being more like a housekeeper and build more intimate relationships with their clients.
  2. Cost Savings: Lower overhead costs can make solo cleaners a more budget-friendly option.
  3. Consistency: Having the same person clean your home each time provides familiarity.
  4. Direct Communication: Dealing directly with a solo cleaner makes it easier to address specific needs or concerns.
  5. Flexible Arrangements: Solo cleaners may accommodate unique scheduling requests or last-minute cleanings.


  1. Reliability Concerns: Solo cleaners may have other priorities outside their small number of clients. If they aren’t available you don’t get your clean.
  2. Limited Services: Solo cleaners might not offer the wide range of services and expertise.
  3. Lack of Backup: If a solo cleaner is unavailable, there might not be a backup plan, leaving you without cleaning services until they return.
  4. Insurance and Liability: Not all solo cleaners carry adequate insurance or workers compensation, which could leave you vulnerable to liability in case of accidents or damages.
  5. Limited motivation: Being a solo cleaner can be less motivating because you work alone. There is also limits to the size of home a solo cleaner can clean on their own.
