A few days ago I had the privileged to see professional house cleaners in action. And, let me tell you, they were professional, hard working, and seemed to actually enjoy cleaning! The client, who I know personally, was overjoyed with the results and went on and on about how beneficial it was to have some of the pressure taken off during this busy holiday season.
That got me thinking about how many of you may be interested in hiring professional house cleaners at some point. So, I quizzed a few folks, put a request on HARO and found out some very helpful information about hiring professional house cleaners.
How to Choose a Professional House Cleaning Company
The number one way to find a dependable, trust-worthing cleaning company is word of mouth. Your friends and acquaintances will share their experiences, both good and bad, without hesitation. Any concerns you have can be best answered by the ones who have previously hired the company. Of course, you will also want to do your due diligence in researching any cleaning company you may use and ask the right questions.
Questions to Ask When Hiring a Professional House Cleaning Company
- Are your workers professionally trained?
- Are your workers regularly updated on cleaning techniques?
- What exactly will be done each cleaning?
- Do they bring their own supplies? Mop, pail, vacuum also?
- How many people are coming for the hourly rate?
- How far in advance should I book?
- Do they do laundry, ironing, windows, ladder work, silver, etc.
- Are the employees background checked? How extensively?
- Are the employees drug tested?
- How long have you been in business?
- Do you pay social security and medicare taxes for your employees? (If not, then you, as the consumer must pay those.)
- Are your employees covered by workers’ comp insurance?
- What if something is broken or damaged in my home? How is that handled?
- Can you book the same cleaner repeatedly if impressed with them?
What would you add to he list? Have you ever hired a professional house cleaner? Would you consider it (especially during the busy holiday season)?
