How to Select the Proper Cleaning Service for Your House

Allowing somebody into your home is a sign of trust, and whenever you contract a service to cleanse your house, you are offering them entrance to some of your most private areas. Seeking the correct questions and doing due diligence prior to hiring someone can ensure you contract a moral, high-quality housekeeping business.

What to Look for in a House Cleaning Business

Start by looking at company feedback and getting suggestions through friends and family. If a housekeeping business has done a good job for its clients and behaved appropriately, those are good indications they’ll engage in the same behavior for you.

Next, check listings with the BBB or other local or regional agencies. Look for unresolved complaints that might signal that a service is not the one you want to engage with.

Lastly, read through the fine print on the house cleaning service’s website, and look for answers to find out:

  • Whether it offers the type of work you require. A company that works exclusively on cleaning one-family houses may not want to engage in work cleaning an entire apartment complex, for example. Likewise, a company that focuses on larger commercial deep cleaning jobs probably does not engage in house cleaning for single family residences.
  • How it contracts contractors. Look for housekeeping services that perform background screening and take other measures to guarantee your well being when it dispatches workers into your home.
  • What chemicals and cleansers it employs. When you have children or are worried about the environment, you may want to search for a house cleaning service that offers work using eco-friendly, nontoxic chemicals.

Taking a moment to conduct thorough homework helps you hire a house cleaning business in Providence that best lives up to your standards.

What Do Housekeeping Services Cost?

Housekeeping services in Providence vary widely, and so does how much you might pay. Pros often price their cleaning services a la carte, meaning you pay a flat rate for each type of cleaning, or by hourly fee schedules. Difficult work or jobs that demand special skills may cost more.

Nationally, the typical price point for most home cleaning services is $75 to $250 per session. This may cover an array of services, including regular home cleaning, going on errands, washing laundry, or cooking.

  • Services that actively advertise home cleaning usually offer cleaning jobs only. The average costs are $125 to $240 per cleaning visit, although you might select options that let you pay a specific amount per month for weekly cleaning.
  • Deep cleaning jobs start around $400, on average, and the total cost depends on the scope and difficulty of the job.
  • Cleaning gutters costs around $160, though you might pay more for a larger home or one requiring scaffolding or ladders.
  • Using a pressure washer to wash siding on a home costs around $280, though, once more, an extremely large home may cost much more to clean.

  • 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.
