What to Look for When Searching for a Cleaning Service

Ever wondered what to look for in a cleaning company? Here are 5 things to look for when searching for a cleaning service.

When it comes to cleaning services, there are a lot of options between individuals and companies in the area. With so many options, it can be difficult to decide which professional cleaning service to hire. To make the process easier, consider these 5 items during your search.

Background Check on Employees

Allowing someone to come in and clean your home requires a lot of trust. To ease your mind, be sure to ask about background checks. If a company performs a background check on each cleaner, you can be assured that they are trustworthy individuals.

Bonded and Insured

To add another layer of protection for you, find a cleaning service that is bonded and insured. Bonded and insured means that any theft or accidental damage to property in your home is covered. When cleaners enter your home there is always a chance someone could get injured on the job or accidental damage could occur, if a company isn’t bonded and insured they cannot be held liable.

Being bonded and insured means you have one less thing you have to worry about. A professional cleaning service will happily provide proof of insurance whenever asked. 

Flexibility for Scheduling

Scheduling a day and time that works best for you should be a priority. Make sure to ask what days/times they have available for cleanings to ensure it works with your schedule. This is also a good time to ask about their cancellation policy and how to reschedule a cleaning appointment.

Take some time to ask about how long a typical cleaning will take and how many cleaners will be sent. This helps you plan effectively for cleaning services.

Reliable Reviews or References

Most cleaning services will have an online presence which means you can quickly do a google search to read reviews. A good house cleaning service should also be willing to provide references whenever asked so you can ask past customers directly for honest feedback.

It’s also a great idea to ask about quality guarantees so you know how any possible dissatisfaction with the service will be handled. A professional cleaning service is always ready to offer additional cleaning or promotion to keep customers satisfied.

Ask about Cleaning Packages

Each cleaning company will have different items included in their cleaning packages. Ask about pricing for regular scheduled cleanings as they usually include a slight discount when you are on a schedule for weekly or biweekly cleaning. 

Standard cleanings will likely include regular tasks like vacuuming, dusting, mopping, and areas of the home like kitchen, bathrooms, and living room. Ask which items cost extra to add on like a fridge cleaning or wiping down the inside of cabinets. Other services like washing dishes or organization are usually not included but you may find a company who does both.

Overall, it’s important to go over what is included in regular cleanings so you start off on the same page.

Hire the Right Cleaning Company

Now that you’ve considered these 5 things to look for when hiring a cleaning service, take time to think about what you want in a house cleaning and choose the best company. Take your time to research and ask questions.
