Factors To Consider When Hiring House Cleaning Services

Nobody wants to live in a house where dirt thrives. Hence people strive every day to ensure their houses uphold high standards of cleanliness. It is a lot easier to use house cleaning services rather than doing the cleaning yourself. House cleaning experts have all that is needed to perfectly clean a home. For example, the experts have quality cleaning products and equipment which make house cleaning very time saving. When deciding to hire house cleaning services, it can be a tricky affair. This is because so many agencies exist which makes it problematic for a person to pick the best among them.

Hiring House Cleaning Services

This article looks at 10 factors to consider when choosing house cleaning services:

Communicate the scope of cleaning services

House cleaning services have several categories. The services can be offered at a basic level-mopping, dusting and vacuum cleaning. A person has to communicate to those in charge of cleaning the exact basic services needed. If specific services are needed, the cleaning staff have to be informed. For example, a person may want the cleaners to entirely concentrate on laundry cleaning and carpet cleaning services.

Use efficient and professional cleaning team

Professionalism is everything in all industries. You can regret ever using house cleaning services if you come across a cleaning team that is so unprofessional. Thus, ensure the house cleaning agency chosen has a professional cleaning team. This is evaluated by reading through reviews written by clients. Specifically, check if the agency’s cleaning team has be mentioned positively. This is in terms of services they offer- doing house cleaning on time and treating clients respectfully.

Frequency of cleaning home

Do you require house cleaning services just once in a while, once every week, after every two weeks or a month? If you have a flexible work schedule that allows you to do a few chores, use house cleaning services after very two weeks or once in a month. If your work schedule is very tight, use the services once every week.

Hiring House Cleaning Services

Licensing and insurance coverage

What would happen if you used house cleaning services that are neither licensed nor insured? Of course it would be an ugly experience. If the cleaning personnel damaged your property or got injured when cleaning, you would solely bear the responsibility. To distance yourself from such occurrences, use cleaning services that are licensed and insured. In case of damages to your possessions arising from house cleaning, you can make a claim. If the cleaning personnel get injured, you are sure their medical expenses will be paid by the house cleaning company.

Evaluate multiple house cleaning services

Using house cleaning services has to be done in a procedural manner. Among the top priorities should be to identity the best agency to work for you. The identification process requires conducting interviews with a few agencies. The interviews should raise various issues. A person should confirm if the agencies rotate the cleaning personnel regularly or the same people sent the first time will be used always. This is very crucial to a house owner based on two factors. One, if the cleaning personnel are used on a rotational basis, they will take some time before they familiarize with a house. This means they spend more time doing house cleaning before being fully accustomed to the house. Secondly, if the same staff are used continually, in some cases, laxity might become an issue thus cleaning standards are compromised.

Security checks

Inquire from the house cleaning agency chosen the security mechanisms used to assess if their cleaning staff are trustworthy. A good house cleaning agency will conduct security checks by using referees provided by the cleaning staff. The agency also conducts background checks on the staff to ensure they have not been involved in questionable activities. This consideration is important as you will entrust your house to the cleaning staff for the entire time they will be cleaning. Thus it is important to be fully aware that your possessions will be safe even if you are not present to oversee the cleaning process.

Hiring House Cleaning Services

Cost of cleaning

Ask about the cost of cleaning then decide if you will use house cleaning services from the specific agency. Cost assessment should focus on the following:
· The amount charged for cleaning.
· If the amount is charged depending on the size of the house or cleaning hours.
· If an invoice will be sent.
It is also important to assess quotations from various agencies to determine which one has the best offer. However, the main aim should be to get quality house cleaning services. Therefore, an agency should not be considered just because the cost charged is very low.

Remove clutter from your home

This is among the cleaning tips that help in quickly doing house cleaning. Clearing your home of unnecessary items makes cleaning home easier for the hired house cleaning experts.

Decide if you will stay or not

Most people prefer to have the cleaning team in their homes when they are not around. The team needs to have full access to the house. A house owner has to ensure the house keys are readily available so that cleaning can take place. If the locks have security codes, the codes have to be disclosed to the team. This should only happen after a person has verified the cleaning agency and its team can be trusted. A person should ask for a proof of licensing certificate and insurance document to confirm the credibility of the cleaners. A person can also decide to stick around until cleaning is completed if there are no other commitments to attend to.

Location

If you hire house cleaning services from an agency that is far away from your home, they will take much time before they arrive. The location of the agency has to be thought about carefully. The agency chosen has to be one that is considerably near your home so that the cleaning services are offered within the set time schedule.

In conclusion

If you want to improve on your house cleaning activities yet you do not have enough motivation and time for it, use house cleaning services. Make sure to follow the factors shared in this article so that you select the best services.

House Cleaning Services in Singapore


testimonials
I am moving out from my previous bungalow and I required a one-time cleaning. I was strongly recommended by my friend, their existing customer. Part Time Cleaner took patience to explain to me the scope of work, number of cleaners and etc. On the actual day, 3 cleaners were at my site cleaning. Their cleaners are professionals, they realised that even with them around, and they are unable to clean up the entire site on-time. They called their supervisor, Ah Poh to inform him that they may need to work overtime due to lack of manpower. He came down in less than 20 minutes and started work immediately without even charging an extra manpower cost.

Ah Poh left me a very deep impression, he said in Chinese: "We are here to solve your problems and hope to put a smile on your face." Surprisingly, they managed to finish my site on-time cleaning every spot! All I can say, they are professionals and provide high standard of services. Will continue engaging them for my weekly cleaning! Thank you.
