Hi…. The blog should be interesting as well as useful to the audience. Usually a common man searches on cleaning company’s blog to explore more cleaning tips. So it’s better to concentrate on such things. Here is a cleaning company’s blog http://www.sunrise-cleaning.com/blog/ where they mentioned about some cleaning tips, how to clean, when to clean so on. You can adopt some styles of these.

IMHO it's not a good idea to include cleaning tips on the blog of a cleaning company. After all you want the people to book a service from you and your company not do all the cleaning by themselves.

Well, you can include cleaning tips, but make it sound like it takes a lot of work/time to do correctly, and be sure to include some sort of tag line along the lines of "If you'd rather spend your time doing fun stuff instead of cleaning, get in touch with us at (insert contact info or link to your "contact us" page)."

And if there are small things, too minor to come within the scope of your services that a homeowner/office manager could take care of for themselves, they're liable to appreciate your tips on how to accomplish these tasks more effectively. And when they need help with bigger cleaning jobs, who will they think of first?

Blogging is primarily for branding, developing awareness and positioning yourself as an industry thought leader. People who find you through your blog are probably too high in the sales funnel for a hard direct sales pitch to be effective.
