Guide to Choosing a Good Cleaning Service Keeping our homes clean and tidy can be an unending chore that takes up a lot of our free time. If you feel like your life has revolved around vacuuming, changing bed linens, dusting, etc., using a home cleaning service could be the answer. Staffed by expert cleaners, maid services offer a whole range of options, such as weekly or biweekly cleanings, one-shot cleaning for special occasions and special services for garage or basement cleaning. Of course, at the end of the day, the results boil down to the quality of the house cleaning service you hire. Here are tips to help you find the right service for your needs: Interviewing Different Prospects
News For This Month: Tips
Before picking a certain cleaning service, it’s good to interview at least two or three different providers. Ask for client references and talk to them. Remember that these cleaners are going to spend quite an amount of time in your house. Not only should you be comfortable having them around, but you should also find them trustworthy. Policies about Cleaning Supplies
News For This Month: Tips
There are services that bring their own cleaning supplies (brooms, vacuum, cleaning solvents, etc.) when coming to home, but there are others that need you to have your own. To make things easier, simply ask them outright. If they do provide their own materials and there is somebody in your household who has allergies, inform them beforehand. Defining Areas to Be Cleaned It’s good to sit down and make a short note of the areas of your home that you want them to work on. If you have any special requests, you should inform them in advance, and you should also know ahead of time whether or not these requests can be accommodated. Special Charges Related to Type of Residence Sometimes, the type of home you have can affect your final charges. For instance, if you live in an apartment or condominium, your cleaner may have to secure a special permit to enter your unit. If you live in a townhouse or duplexes, parking can be an issue for the cleaner, especially if your home is one of many units in a single complex. If your home is located within a gated community, this can also be a factor. Nobody likes being surprised when it comes to their bill, so this is something you should ask the cleaners beforehand. Discussing Payments in Advance Lastly, make it a point to talk about payments with your cleaning service prior to committing to them – yes, even prior to the first cleaning. They may have their own established system, or you may be allowed to make suggestions. What’s most important is that both sides agree on the price, the payment schedule and the specific services to be provided.
