Whether you are just too busy to keep your house clean or you just do not want to commit to the task, you can always hire a house cleaning company to get the job done for you. Here are a few questions you should ask before hiring a company for ongoing house cleaning services:
What Kind of Cleaning Solutions are Used?
One important question to ask before hiring a house cleaning company is what type of cleaning solutions they use. Do they use typical commercial solutions that can be found at the grocery store, or do they use professional-grade options? Are their solutions full of harsh chemicals, or do they use organic ingredients?
If you or someone living in your household has allergies to certain chemicals or cleaning products, let the service provider know about it so they can verify whether they can avoid using those chemicals when they clean your home. If they do, they may instead allow you to provide them with the cleaning solutions you want them to use. You might even get a small discount for their services if you provide the cleaning solution.
What Scheduling Options are Available?
If you do not mind that your service provider cleans your home when you are not there, your scheduling requirements are likely flexible. But if you want to be home during the cleaning, you are going to need to make sure that the cleaning company you hire can meet your scheduling needs. This is even more important if you anticipate that your schedule will change as time goes on.
Therefore, you should make sure that the cleaning provider you hire offers flexible scheduling options. If you want to set up weekly or monthly cleaning appointments for the year ahead of time, you should be able to do so. But, if you want to schedule your appointments as your schedule allows, you should be able to do that, too.
Who Will Be Entering the Home?
The most important question you should ask a service provider before hiring them is who will be entering the space on appointment days. Will the same person show up to clean each appointment, or does it depend on who is on duty at the time? How are employees vetted? Can requests for cleaners be made based on things like the amount of time they have been with the company? Will the names of the employees be provided to you before they come to your home? What if you do not like a particular employee who cleans your home for some reason?
