Scrub Lou: Scrubbing Louisville Homes

At Scrub Lou, a cleaning company in Louisville, KY, we specialize in residential house cleaning services. In other words, it’s our “bread and butter.” For us, however, residential cleanings as a service offering represent a broad category that encompasses a series of separate, unique cleaning services. The best offering for you will depend on your Louisville, KY home’s particular needs, and we are proud to be flexible in offering these more specialized cleans (i.e. hoarding, deep cleans). To get started, you can explore our residential sub-services, which are accompanied by more information and listed below.


FYI: Our residential cleaning services go beyond houses to include other property types like apartments or condos.

Our Residential Cleaning Services By Type

As stated, our residential cleaning service is an umbrella that hosts different sub-services we offer to Louisville, KY residents. Serving a diverse client base with differing needs, we are proud to match these needs with various house cleaning services. Whether your home is currently in disarray or only needs a light touch-up, our team is ready to restore comfort inside your house. Learn more about each of our sub-services by reading below. 

Note: Each cleaning service’s dedicated page lays out exactly what’s involved as part of the cleaning. 

Deep Cleaning

It’s in the name. A deep clean is a one-time cleaning service that – simply put – is thorough. In performing a deep clean, our team is required to apply a bit more ‘elbow grease’ to mopping your floors, wiping down the stove top, and dusting the cabinet tops inside your home. A good parallel to envision our deep clean service is to think of detailing your vehicle versus taking it to the car wash and vacuuming the inside. Overall, this service is best suited for homes that are especially dirty or that have never been deep cleaned before.

Regular Cleaning

Our most popular option, the regular cleaning is an ongoing service that can be performed on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly recurring basis. It all starts with an initial clean which primes your home for the incoming cleans our team is to perform. From there, we will regularly visit your home – according to schedule – in order to maintain a consistently clean home over the long run. In turn, you need not to worry about cleaning your home again – and enjoying it instead.

Hoarding Clean

For homes with severe clutter, Scrub Lou provides a solution in the form of our hoarding clean service. For homes where hoarding is an occurrence, an extra level of labor is commonly required to not only clean the home, but to rid or reorganize it of the excessive items that it hosts. Nonetheless, Scrub Lou has completed countless hoarding cleans and extends its team to do the same for you. Before & after pictures of some of our hoarding work are available further down this page.

Move-In Clean

Are you moving into a property needing a clean before you can comfortably lay your head to rest there? If so, we present to you our move-in cleaning service. In executing a move-in clean, our team’s goal is for your new home to be truly new. We’ll successfully erase any remnants of past residents (i.e. carpet stains, leftover debris) which delivers a fresh start to a new home.

Move-Out Clean

Over the course of occupying a property, a toll is taken on the cleanliness of the property itself. Compounding this is the process of moving out itself, which very well may distribute debris as well as reveal areas you may have never thought to clean before. Alas, Scrub Lou offers its move-out clean service to ensure a gracefully passing on of a property to a new owner.
