It shocks me when potential clients reach out to us for service and they just want a blind estimate over the phone based on square footage and a little information they can give, in their opinion, of the things that need to be cleaned. Price is most definitely a deciding factor; however, I think the company’s knowledge in what you need cared for should be an even higher deciding factor than price. Does the term “You get what you pay for” sound familiar?
When you hire a service provider you trust that they are knowledgeable in the areas that they service. You are either hiring them because they are accredited and licensed in their field or you simply would rather hire someone rather than to do it yourself. But there’s another saying that goes “If you want something done right you’d better do it yourself!” In order to get your Housekeeper/Cleaning Company to do things your way you’d better set a time to meet them before handing over your key. This way you can go over your specifics so that things will be done the way you want it. Let's look at 5 questions you should ask a cleaning company or housekeeper before you hire them to make sure that things are done right!
1. What Type of Cleaning Products Will You Use?
Just because it’s in the cleaning aisle doesn’t mean it should be used in your home. Some cleaning solutions are cheap, overly fragrant, and used by many cleaning companies. Try to get an exact understanding of what supplies they will be using so you aren’t alarmed by their idea of the scent of clean when you return home after a service day. Cleaning solutions, if not diluted properly, could also leave a residue causing more work to be done in the long haul of removing the product applied that was supposed to clean!
