This year, home cleaning has taken on greater significance than simply getting your home ready for a new season. A clean and de-cluttered space can not only keep us and our families away from germs, but also reduces our stress and boosts our mood. Because the COVID-19 pandemic calls for extra attention to home cleaning, many households are seeking help from professionals who use specialized tools and chemicals to disinfect homes. This process, called “fogging,” uses a sprayer to disperse disinfectant in the space. In response to the demand, some local home cleaning services have added such services to their offerings. Read on to find out the home cleaning services are available now in Hoboken and Jersey City and what they offer.
Disclaimer: Please utilize these recommendations at your own risk. While getting your home cleaned is legal under the current state as it stands at the time of posting, things can change rapidly. Please do what is best for you + your family, understanding the risks of having someone else in your home.
Maid in Hoboken | Hoboken
A longtime Hoboken cleaning staple, Maid in Hoboken now offers a COVID-19 disinfecting fogging service, in which a non-toxic antimicrobial solution is applied to surfaces and sprayed in the air. For a typical 2-bed 2-bath home, the cleaning takes between 2.5 to 3 hours, at a cost of $95 per hour. The fogging process, which takes place after cleaning, takes about an hour, in which people and pets are advised to leave the apartment.
Total cost for cleaning and fogging: $550-$600. Appointments can be booked by phone at 201-659-9500

VepoClean’s home cleaning services cover Hoboken, Jersey City Heights, and downtown Jersey City. According to its website, it uses green and organic products that are non-toxic and eco-friendly. The hourly rate for a typical 2-bed 2-bath apartment is about $80 plus tax and takes about 2.5-3 hours. In addition to regular cleaning, EcoPure also provides extra “steam vapor” and “fogging disinfection” services. According to the VepoClean staff, this “steam vapor” kills viruses and bacteria using high temperatures, and the process takes about an hour. Since only water is used, people do not need to leave the premises in the interim. “Fogging” disinfects by spraying EPA-approved agents into the air. And since disinfecting chemicals are used, people need to leave the space, and the entire process takes about two hours.
The prices for both services are the same and depend on the square footage of the premises. An 800 square feet apartment, for example, costs about $180. Appointments can be booked online or by phone at 201-474-3133

The services offered by Regina’s Maids include regular home cleaning and move-out cleaning. Disinfection is performed after regular cleaning, with extra attention to “high-risk” surfaces such as doorknobs.
