Hiring a maid service can sometimes save you stress, money, and time. Finding the company that works best for your situation may take extra time in the beginning, but it is an investment worth your time. Below are just four tips that can help you hire a home cleaning company for your needs.
1. References, Reviews, and Reputation
There are several ways to find reputable home cleaning companies. You can start by asking your neighbors or friends for recommendations. The internet will have a list of companies nearby as well. Wherever you choose to start your search, it is important to reach out to them. They should be more than willing to answer any of your questions. Getting a first impression of their customer service is helpful. Meeting the maids that will clean your house is also very important. They will be in your home and you need to feel comfortable having them there.
2. Costs and Customizable Plans
Every company will be able to give you a basic quote, some may even have that quote online depending on the square footage and rooms in your home. It is also good to ask about additional add on items they have. If you can customize a plan to meet the needs of the home, it may save you money in the long run. Make sure to go over with the service the exact cost of the cleaning package and if there is anything extra you will need done.
3. Type of Cleaning Supplies
Many home cleaning companies have green cleaning products. If that is important to you, make sure to verify their products and if there are any additional costs to upgrade the products. They may also bring their own cleaning rags, but it is good to know if they will need access to yours or not.
4. Ensure Satisfaction Is Guaranteed
Last, ask about what happens if you are not satisfied with their service or if something is broken. Putting away any valuables before a maid service comes is always a good idea. Regardless, they should have insurance to cover any accidents. Whether it be intentional or maybe their products do not work with fabric in your house, it's important to know if they are insured.
Taking the footwork now with vetting a house cleaning company will help you feel confidant that you have the best service for your needs.
