So you’ve finally gone and decided that enough is enough. You are well and truly done with cleaning your home. You’ve been doing it for years with very little help from anyone else in the household. You spend hours every day and every week desperately trying to keep everything as clean as possible and a few days later it’s all a complete mess again.
I’ve been in this exact situation, and I can agree that is very frustrating. However, one of the awesome things about working all week is the fact that you have money to spend. You can spend your money on trying to make your life more enjoyable or in the case of hiring a professional company, a lot easier. It is stressful trying to stay on top of everything at home. Cooking, washing clothes, making sure bills are paid on time, getting the kids to school are all time-consuming enough without adding the hassle of cleaning up after everyone on top.
But you can’t just hire the first person you see in the newspaper or online. Just like hiring a carpenter or an electrician, you will want to do your due diligence first to make sure you are hiring a hard-working and trustworthy cleaner or team of cleaners.
This short guide will help you avoid the common pitfalls of hiring a cleaner and make sure you hire a superstar.
The very 1st thing you should do is ask your friends and family member and see if they have a good recommendation for you. This is the optimal way to go about things because they will not lie to you. The have nothing to gain from deceiving you so they will give an honest recommendation.
When you interview prospective cleaning crews, make sure you ask them not just how many years of experience they have but also, what kind of guarantees they can offer you. Are they willing to give you your money back if you are not happy? Will they come back and re-clean for free?
Another important question to ask is what kind of insurance cover they have. Anybody who gets hurt in your house can sue you if they don’t have the necessary insurance cover. So that is something to be very careful of. Also, these people are going to be roaming around your house, sometimes when nobody else is in the house. So they have to be trustworthy and insured against any theft or against any damage they might cause.
It’s important that you take your time and don’t rush into this. You need to hire the right cleaner for you because in the long run you will want to be building up a good, strong relationship with this person.
