Your backyard paradise would not be complete without your own pool, but owning a pool means regular maintenance becomes part of the equation. If you have a pool that you are struggling to upkeep on your own, you may need to hire a pool cleaning service for help. Here is a look at some of the questions most people have about cleaning their pool with the help of a professional pool cleaning service. 

How much do you have to pay to have your pool professionally cleaned?

According to Home Guide, having your pool professionally cleaned will usually cost you between $150 and $350 for a first-time service from a professional. Some pool owners choose to hire a cleaning service that cleans their pol periodically, which can cost you $80 to $150 for weekly or bi-weekly cleanings. 

Why is it better to have your pool cleaned professionally?

Most pool owners simply do not have the time to dedicate to properly cleaning a backyard pool. Not to mention, most owners also do not have the necessary tools and equipment to get all of the steps in the process done properly. When you hire a pro to clean your pool, they will get the process done usually within a day because they have enough people and tools to do the job right. 

Is it best to have a cleaning done at the beginning of the swimming season or the end?

Most people do choose to have the pool cleaned early in the season so it is pristine and ready for summertime enjoyment. However, it is also a good idea to have it cleaned at the end of the season. The pool will be clean throughout the winter so no gunk or debris will create problems while the pool is not in use. 

What happens during a professional pool cleaning project?

Several steps will be taken when you have your pool cleaned by professionals, including: 

  • Water vacuums are used to clear debris out of the water
  • Backwash filters are cleaned out 
  • Skimmers, pump baskets, and other items will be cleaned 
  • Pool walls will be brushed down with scrubbers and any grime removed 

In addition, the pro may go through the process of checking the water for proper chemical levels. If you have a patio around your pool, you may be able to pay additional costs to have this area cleaned and pressure washed as well.
