Top Tips for Employing the Correct House Cleaning Professionals

Whenever you employ someone to clean your home, you’re consciously deciding to let them inside your most private spaces. That relies on a great amount of trust and assurance that you are contracting a five-star, ethical housekeeping business. Property owners and tenants can do their part by asking the right questions and doing research before signing on the dotted line with a cleaning service.

What to Look for in a House Cleaning Service

Start by scanning reviews and seeking suggestions on social media. If a housekeeping company has done a terrific service for its clients and conducted themselves ethically, those are good indications they will engage in the same behavior for you.

Check listings next with the Better Business Bureau or other local or regional agencies. Search for issues that were never resolved that might signal that a company is not one you want to deal with.

Lastly, read through the information on the cleaning service’s website, and ask questions to find out:

  • Whether or not it provides the type of services you require. A business that focuses on cleaning single-family residences may not want to take on work cleaning an entire condo complex, for instance. Likewise, a company that engages in bigger commercial cleaning jobs probably does not engage in housekeeping for small homes.
  • How it contracts employees. Search for house cleaning companies that perform background screening and take other measures to ensure your safety when it sends team members into your home.
  • What type chemicals and cleansers it utilizes. If you have children or are concerned about the environment, you may wish to look for a housekeeping company that offers services using eco-friendly, nontoxic chemicals.

Doing a bit of homework upfront to make sure you contract the top housekeeping company in Swampscott might raise the chances of a satisfactory result.

What Services Do Cleaning Companies Provide

Cleaning and housekeeping companies provide various sorts of services. You can choose a home cleaning professional to provide you with an in-depth one-off cleaning or sign up with a service to take on day-to-day housekeeping requirements. Locating a suitable cleaning professional requires choosing what type of housekeeping services you need.

Some of the most common types of services provided by cleaning companies include:

  • Daily/weekly housekeeping. These services are generally delivered either daily or weekly, based on your wishes and the services you select. Housekeeping businesses may dust, mop, sweep; clean tubs, toilets, and sinks; and wipe counters and appliances. Some packages can also include added services such as doing the laundry.
  • One-off in-depth house cleaning. If you have a big gathering or holiday on the horizon or want to put your residence on the market and need it to look its best, you might invest in deep cleaning. This service gives your entire home a thorough cleaning, with cleaning personnel sometimes moving major appliances to clean beneath and around them, scrubbing walls and baseboards, cleaning windows, and taking on additional cleaning duties that don’t generally fall under everyday home cleaning categories.
  • Special cleaning. Many home cleaning professionals offer supplemental options that help you with cleaning special home areas, including basements, attics, pools, pool houses, or exteriors. An example is using a pressure washer to clean driveways, patios, or exterior siding.

  • 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.
