Tips On When To Hire Professionals To Do Church Cleaning

Church cleaning

Church cleaning is usually done by members of the congregation. A church house needs to be vacuumed, dusted, swept, mopped, the windows need to be cleaned, the bathroom needs to be cleaned, the kitchen needs to be cleaned, and the exterior of the building needs to be cleaned. Church cleaning is very important because the way the church building looks is a reflection on the congregation.

There are times when the members of a church are so busy with the things in their lives that they do not have time for proper church cleaning. When this is the case the members usually hire a company to come in and give their building a good old fashioned scrubbing from top to bottom.

The ceilings in the church can be particularly difficult for the members of the congregation to clean because the ceilings in the main worship area are usually high to help improve the acoustics in the room. Hiring a professional company to come in and clean those high ceilings once or twice a year could prevent one of the parishioners from falling and being injured while cleaning them.


Most of the women in the congregation take the turn cleaning the nursery, the kitchen, the bathroom, and the offices of the church. These ladies even take turns vacuuming so there is no dirt on the carpeting, but even church carpet has to be steam cleaned on occasion. The congregation can rent a machine and gather to do the work, or they can hire a professional carpet cleaning service to do the work for them. The professionals can do the job in half the time it would take the church members, and the professionals know tricks to getting stains and odors out of carpets that everyday people just do not know. If you hire professionals to steam you carpeting considering getting them to steam the cushioned sections of the pews as well.


Exterior cleaning and window cleaning can both require ladders. It is far safer for the congregation to allow professionals to come in and do any work that requires a person to climb a ladder to reach the dirt they are trying to remove.

Once or twice a year the parking lot will need to be pressure washed to remove oil that has dropped from cars, and stains that have developed on the concrete. This job is easily done with a rented power washer. You can rent one of these machines for less than one hundred dollars, and do the work in one day or less.
