Find a local cleaner

As Brits spend more hours working, it’s little surprise that house cleaning can easily become a neglected chore. More and more people are relying on the help of professionals to keep their homes clean and comfortable.  One in four people in the UK are now employing house cleaning services, which means they can spend more time on the things they really enjoy.

Since a cleaner will have access to your property and possessions – possibly even when the house is unattended – it is very important that you find someone who is reliable and trustworthy. Thankfully, Hoppy is here to help.

Things to consider when hiring a cleaning service

First thing’s first, before hiring a professional house cleaning service, customers will need to decide exactly what jobs they need help with and how often these need to be carried out. If it’s a deep clean that is required, this may only need to be a one-off service. However, for the general upkeep of a household or cleaning services will probably be required every week or fortnight.

Try to make a list of all the requests you have and run through these with the cleaner, as some tasks may be charged at an additional price (for example an oven clean is likely to be charged separately). Prioritise which jobs you want your cleaner to take care of and which ones you are happy to do yourself to reduce costs where possible.

It’s also a good idea to ask the cleaning service if they offer initial consultations. Every home is different, so this will be a great opportunity for the cleaner to familiarise themselves with your needs and to offer you a more tailored service. At this point, you should also look for any testimonials from their previous customers in order to gauge how trustworthy they are, how fast they work and the quality of their results. Don’t be afraid to ask about their experience or request references from their other clients. A good cleaner will be more than happy to oblige your request to put your mind at ease.

Ensure that everyone knows exactly what their responsibilities are before work begins. An agreement should be reached as to whether they will be supplying their own cleaning products and what times they will be working. The clearer all these details are, the smoother the process will be.
