Choosing the Right Cleaning Service for Your Home

Knowing what to look for in a cleaning company can help you find the best service for your home. It’s important to look for a company with the right skills and experience, but you’ll also want to hire a business that demonstrates trustworthiness and ethics. After all, you’re going to allow these professionals into the most private spaces in your home.

Search for This in a Cleaning Service

Begin by reading reviews and seeking suggestions through family and friends. If a house cleaning business has performed a great service for its clients and conducted themselves ethically, those are excellent signs they will engage in the same behavior for you.

Check listings next with the BBB or other local or regional agencies. Search for unresolved complaints that could indicate that a business is not the one you want to engage with.

Finally, read through the fine print on the house cleaning service’s website, and ask questions to find out:

  • Whether it provides the sort of services you require. A business that focuses on cleaning one-family houses may not want to take on work cleaning an entire condo complex, for example. And, a service that focuses on bigger commercial deep cleaning services probably doesn’t provide house cleaning for single family residences.
  • How it contracts employees. Search for housekeeping companies that complete background checks and take other steps to keep you safe when it dispatches team members into your house.
  • What type chemicals and cleansers it employs. If you have pets or are worried about the environment, you may wish to look for a housekeeping company that provides work with nontoxic, eco-friendly chemicals.

Taking a moment to engage accurate homework helps you hire a cleaning service in Lakewood that most accurately lives up to your expectations.

Standard Services Local Cleaning Businesses Provide

Each home is different, and each home has particular cleaning needs. That’s one reason cleaning pros provide such a broad range of services. They differ from one-off in-depth cleanings or specialty cleanings to daily home cleanings. Understanding the sort of services available can help you find the best housekeeper.

General Cleaning Help

Cleaning companies often offer options to assist you in keeping up with cleaning on a daily schedule. You can schedule cleaning professionals to visit your home weekly or several times a week to tackle everyday housekeeping needs including:

  • Vacuuming, mopping, and sweeping floors
  • Wiping down or dusting countertops and other surfaces
  • Spot cleaning walls and windows
  • Sanitizing and cleaning tubs, sinks, and toilets

Many housekeeping professionals may also assist with jobs such as ironing or laundry.

Deep Cleaning Prior to a Big Day

Lots of folks schedule a home cleaning business to prepare their residence or other areas prior to an important holiday, home sale, move, or event. For instance, you might hire a home cleaning service to give your home a deep cleaning subsequent to the arrival of holiday guests or to be certain it looks good before you list it with a real estate agent.

One-off cleaning services tend to reach beyond daily activities. Cleaners can:

  • Move appliances, like stoves and refrigerators, to clean the area behind them.
  • Clean all baseboards, walls, and windows.
  • Use a pressure washer on driveways or walkways.
  • Tackle particularly dirty spots that general housekeeping might not catch.

Housekeeping Services

Most home cleaning companies also offer specialty services. Specialty services can include pressure washing a home’s exterior or cleaning yards, swimming pools, or other features that aren’t part of the actual house.

Self-Employed Housekeeper

Professional Cleaning Service

  • Keeping your home clean is a task that never seems to end, and it can take up most of your free time. Instead of spending your weekends mopping and dusting, consider hiring a housekeeper or cleaning service.
  • Unless a housekeeper performs specific duties regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency or your state or local government, no specific licensing is usually required to become a housekeeper. However, you’ll want to work with a professional who can pass a background check and has a current business license, liability insurance and a surety bond. You’ll also want to select someone who has the experience and can provide references, or someone who has received some professional training from a cleaning company.
  • Keep in mind when hiring any type of professional to clean your home that each state has its own requirements for licensing. You can use Home Advisor’s Contractor Licensing Requirements State-By-State guide to learn more. You can also learn more about the extensive screening process we use when allowing businesses to join our network.

When you hire a housekeeper or cleaning service, there are some questions you’ll need to ask to ensure you’re hiring the right person for the job. Writing down a list of services you want to be completed is a great place to start. This way, you’ll have all the information you need when you do interview a housekeeper or cleaning service, and they can provide you with accurate information and cost estimates.

What Services Do You Offer?

Find out upfront if the housekeeper or cleaning company offers the services you need, especially if you have requests that go beyond basic services.

How Do You Come Up With Your Rates?

Do they charge a flat fee each week? Do they charge an hourly rate? Some companies charge based on your home’s square footage or the number of bedrooms you have.

Do You Provide Your Own Supplies?

Many companies may provide some smaller cleaning supplies, but they may need to use your vacuum cleaner or mop. Others bring their own or none at all. And if you’re particular about the types of chemicals used in your home, you may want to ask what products they use or if they’re willing to use what you provide.

What Happens if Something Goes Wrong?

Anytime you have a professional in your home, something could go wrong. They could get hurt, or some of your property may be damaged. Ask what would happen in these scenarios — a well-qualified professional will have the necessary insurance and bonding to cover these situations.
