Maybe you just want to spend less time cleaning and more time with your family. Maybe you just need the office cleaned up for a big presentation or meeting with the boss.
No matter your situation, read on for our quick guide to hiring the best cleaning services to fit your needs!
Before you hire cleaning services, evaluate your needs.
Create a checklist of everything you need cleaned around your home or office. Also, consider how often you’ll need the cleaning service to come in.
Some things to consider are:
Having an idea of your expectations will help you to choose a company that best fits your needs.
Once you’ve determined the scope of your cleaning needs, spend some time shopping around to find a service that’s affordable for your budget.
Prices can vary depending on your expectations and the cleanliness of your space. For example, some cleaners will charge more for cleaning different types of carpet material, window cleaning, or pet-related cleaning.
When researching costs, be sure to ask the companies you reach out to about any specials that they are currently offering.
Some cleaning services will bring both equipment and supplies. Others will only bring equipment, while you provide the cleaning supplies.
If you have a preference, talk with the service about buying your own supplies for them to use. You might even get a lower fee for your trouble!
Before hiring a cleaning service, be sure to ask for their proof of license to use any special equipment.
It’s also important to ask about their insurance policy, in case any accidental damage occurs to your property during service.
When it comes to your home or office, security is a chief concern.
Talk with your potential cleaner about how they will gain access to your space. Ask if the owner if they perform background checks on employees.
Earning your trust should be a priority for a cleaning service. If you have any suspicions about their trustworthiness, consider other options.
When in doubt, ask for recommendations from friends and family. Chances are high that someone you know has used a cleaning service in the past. Ask for references from each company.
In addition to references and recommendations from your peers, check out the testimonials and reviews for each cleaner on Google, Yelp, and Angie’s List.
Keeping these six ideas in mind will help you hire the best cleaning services for your situation!
