Best Passover House Cleaning Service

It’s that time of year where you may be wandering from room to room, looking at all the cleaning that must be done and no idea where to begin. That feeling of overwhelm is all too common among families in the month leading up to Passover (or even before, if you’re an overachiever!). But it doesn’t have to be that way. If this sounds like you and you think that having an extra set of hands might help relieve the stress, then read on.

What is Pesach or Passover House Cleaning?

Pesach or Passover house cleaning is the process of removing every trace of chametz, or leavening, from your home ahead of Passover.

Pesach house cleaning is much more involved than a typical house cleaning, and is often confused with spring cleaning. But the two have very different purposes. Pesach house cleaning focuses only on removing chametz, or leavening, rather than any piece of dust and dirt that may have accumulated.

Why Is This Important?

This tradition of removing all chametz represents eliminating all corrupting influences that may infiltrate our lives.

The Arizal states, “One who is careful about the most minuscule amount of chametz on Pesach is guaranteed not to sin the entire year.”

Because of the sheer amount of work that it can take to truly eliminate all chametz from your home, many families seek help to provide a little extra assistance in cleaning their homes during this time.

How Can Summit Maids Help?

At Summit Maids, we take great pride in supporting the greater Cleveland and Henderson communities – we regularly donate to local charities, provide living wage jobs, and feel a responsibility to understand the needs of our neighbors.

One day, a time-crunched and totally stressed out client of ours asked whether we offered a dedicated Passover house cleaning service. Working closely alongside her and her family, we were able to knock out several weeks worth of cleaning in just a couple of days – as well as learn the ins and outs of a good Passover house cleaning.

From that experience, we have developed a dedicated Pesach house cleaning service to help you eradicate all chametz from your home with less stress and less time.

Our Passover House Cleaning Service

If you’re dreaming of a year where Pesach cleaning doesn’t completely consume your life for three to four weeks, Summit Maids is here to help. With our signature Passover house cleaning checklist below, we’ll help give you hours of your time back while helping you eradicate chametz from your home.

Our Passover deep cleanings will focus on your kitchen and common rooms – due to the private nature of bedrooms, these are not included in Passover Cleans (Bathrooms may be included by request). If there are some areas that need particular attention, be sure to let your maid know when they arrive.
