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.
