With professional and family responsibilities weighing down most of us, sparing time to clean the home regularly can be a challenge. The best option for those with little time to spare for household cleaning chores is to opt for a cleaning service to get the job done effectively and on time. However, when you plan to hire a cleaning service certain important factors must be considered.
Hire through private referral or through a domestic cleaning agency: While both have their benefits, you need to decide what works best for you. When you hire through a cleaning agency it is more expensive but they do vet their employees to grant them a security clearance. On the other hand, if the person that refers the help is well known to you and the help has worked for them regularly it could be useful.
Look for references: In both scenarios, you need to check for references of previous clients the cleaner has worked with. Speaking to those they have worked for in the past, will help to determine if they are reliable, offer top quality work and are trustworthy.
Experience counts: As with any other tradesman, experience on the job counts. Find out for how long they have been in the cleaning business. The longer they have been around the better they will be at their job. If they have worked consistently with the same employer, the chances are their quality of work is first-rate. Those that have worked for short spells with different employers need not be less qualified for the job, but working for a long period at the same place does instil greater confidence when hiring them.
