Tips for Hiring a Cleaning Company for Your Home or Business

It always feels weird hiring someone to come clean your house. It’s your own space, and having a stranger come along to clean up can just feel a bit weird, especially with all your valuables and appliances in full display. If you’re not sure about how to do it, or would just rather be more prepared for what may come, here are some tips.

Shop Around

The most important thing is to weigh around your options. Whenever you’re hiring just one person, be sure that you’re actually comfortable having them in your house. On the other hand, whenever hiring a company it’s a good idea to know whether they’ll rotate their staff. That helps you determine how much you’ll have to introduce to each person when they come along. Along the same train of thought is knowing whether they’re licensed and insured, you don’t want to have to pay for your valuables again just due to a small mistake.

Know What You Want

Get an idea of when, and how. Never forget to state when you want the cleaning done and how often it needs to be done, be it weekly or a just a one-time affair, which will help determine many things for the employee. Find out whether cleaning out certain things is extra, such as the fridge, and how much will it actually end up costing. Try to ask about the cleaning methods and products they might end up using, and whether they might cause long-term harm to your goods. Certain products may harm the things in your house or may end up leaving streaks that you need to go and clean (again), so be sure to ask about how the cleaning will be done.

Prepare for Pets

Inform whoever is going to come along and clean about any pets you may have at home. This helps them avoid certain issues that might arise due to allergies or phobias of those who are coming along to clean. It also helps prepare for certain cases, such as dogs who shed a lot of fur and require additional cleaning, and whether they’re going to do them, or if they’ll have an additional cost.

Know Where To Be

Decide whether you prefer to be home during the cleaning. It is common for the cleaner to specify an arrival timing, so you’ll know the hours that you’ll need to have free so you stay at home while they cleaning is being done. You are not necessarily tied to your house, and if you feel confident in your cleaner you’re able to give them access to your house in one way or another.
