What You Need to Know Before Hiring a Cleaning Service

Are you considering hiring a cleaning service for your residence or business? Have you hired services in the past, but weren’t happy with the results? Cleaning services can be a great investment, not only for your home or business but for your piece of mind. Here are a few tips for residential or commercial cleaning service.

Interview Multiple Cleaning Services

By interviewing multiple service providers, you’re able to get a feel for the types of services available in your area and make a more informed decision. Make sure you’re comfortable with the cleaning company and their employees. Make sure that all of the employees have thorough background checks. Ask if you will have the same cleaning professional(s) each visit or if there will be a rotation. There is something to be said for having a steady cleaning team clean your space. They learn the space and what you like.

Choose a Licensed and Insured Cleaning Service

Always make sure that any cleaning service provider you chose is licensed and insured.  This protects them, but also protects you and your space. From broken items within your home or office to slip and falls, make sure they are covered so that you’re not stuck fitting the bill.

Let the Cleaning Service Know What You Want (Upfront)

Before signing on the dotted line, specify what you expect from the company. If you require daily services and they only provide weekly, there’s no need to hire them. Provide details to the cleaning service as to what needs to be done and what the requirements of the cleaning tasks might be. Do you have a litter box that needs to be cleaned? Do you expect your windows washed? Request a detailed list from the service of what is included in the package they are quoting you. If you expect your oven and refrigerator cleaned, are they included in the quote or additional? Make sure you fully understand what your service agreement includes before signing to ensure you’re fully satisfied.

Make Sure Everything is Provided Upfront

It’s always better for both sides to be well prepared. Here are a few items that both the client and the cleaning service should know before the agreement is signed.

  • Price
  • Allergies (both yours and the maids being assigned to the project)
  • If you have pets within your home – This goes with the allergies and with fact that some may fear dogs or other animals.
  • Cleaning product preferences
  • The length of cleaning time and start time – If you expect the service to begin at 3 pm and be completed in two hours, but the cleaning service does not arrive until 4 pm and the service takes 4 hours, that is something that you need to be aware of.
