Cleaning Services: How to Hire the Right Company
To describe our lives as busy is a vast understatement. The alarm goes off at 6:30 AM. The kids need to get dressed and catch the bus. You have a full day of work ahead of you and it’s your turn to host the neighborhood picnic tonight. Not much room for rest and relaxation in that schedule, is there? Don’t even mention household chores.
It is important, necessary even, that all of us understand how to hire the right cleaning service. We need to free up our busy schedules and allow more time for the most important things in life. Research correctly, hire a maid, and get out there!
There are hundreds of cleanings services in every major metropolitan area. Of those, major review services like Yelp and Google consider over 200 of them as “top rated”. So, how do you pick which one to do the job?
Fortunately, this list will streamline the endless hours of scouring reviews and will articulate all of the necessary attributes of a reliable cleaning company.
If it takes you more than ten seconds to find the About Us section of their website, keep looking. The most successful cleaning company will have a professional online presence with an easy-to-use web interface. Moreover, they establish who they are, pricing, and even booking straight from the site.
Additionally, the company must ooze credibility to separate themselves from the other cleaning services in your area, and the back page of the classified section just won’t fill that void. So, make sure they have a solid website, a clean interface, and check for the copyright symbol at the very bottom of the page.
A legitimately well-received cleaning company will guarantee the quality of their service. If they take the time to hire professional, trusted cleaners, they extend that trust to your wallet.
Not only will they have competitive prices, you should be able to find a money-back guarantee on their site. Remember, only the best companies will guarantee their services.
Search for detailed pricing guides with a list of services. If all you find is a single page that gives prices by the number of rooms and bathrooms, move on…
A good cleaning company will list out all the individual processes of their services (i.e. Clean Drip Pans, Dust/Wipe Baseboards, etc.) and articulate which of them have additional fees associated. If the website does not have a detailed pricing list, definitely call the customer service line and inquire.
Someone knowledgeable will answer and provide you that information. If not, on to the next one.
While seemingly common sense, it would surprise you how many people get burned by bad cleaning services. Saving a dollar is not worth having your things stolen, or your wallet scammed.
In fact, the better companies will have fairly cheap prices due to economies of scale and streamlined efficiency. So, follow these three simple guidelines and you too can reap the benefits of home cleaning service perfection.
