Nearly 77% of U.S. households do a spring cleaning each year. On average, it takes about six days to complete the cleaning project.
Don’t want to spend six days cleaning your home? Have you considered hiring a cleaning company?
Wondering what to look for when hiring a professional cleaner? Here are six questions to ask.
1. What Are Your Rates?
You want a house cleaning service that fits your budget, so one of the first questions you may ask is about their rates.
Do they charge an overall cleaning fee, or do they charge by the hour? How long do they estimate a cleaning job will take?
You can also ask about what kind of schedule you can set. Some people may want cleaning services once a week while others prefer once a month.
You can also ask if they offer any specials for new customers.
2. How Will You Enter My Home?
Have you ever woken up to a messy house and wished it would be clean when you come back home from work? Our cleaning service can do the work even when you’re not home.
If you work during the day, you can provide us with a spare key which we keep in a locked key safe in our office. This safe has a code, and only your Team Leader or Management knows which home your key is for.
3. Do I Need to Provide Cleaning Supplies?
Some cleaning services bring their own cleaning products and supplies. Others may ask you to provide them.
But who wants to worry about also having to provide cleaning products? At Lemon Blossom Cleaning, we provide all the cleaning supplies and equipment, which means less work for you.
4. Do You Have Worker’s Compensation and Insurance?
Another important question to ask is if the company provides worker’s compensation to their employees. This is important in case the employee is injured in your home.
What’s more, you should ask if the company has insurance in case anything in your home is broken or damaged.
5. Do You Do Background Checks For Your Employees?
You may feel nervous about having a stranger enter your home. Another question to ask is if the company does background checks for its employees.
It will give you peace of mind to know more about the hiring process that the company’s employees go through.
6. What Kind of Different Cleaning Services Do You Offer?
When hiring a cleaner, you can ask about the different cleaning services that they offer.
For instance, at Lemon Blossom Cleaning, we offer optional cleaning services such as interior refrigerator cleaning and interior oven cleaning. These are parts of the home that many people forget to routinely clean.
What’s more, it’s recommended to deep clean the fridge at least once every three to four months and to spot clean as needed.
