You have small children or you work long hours, and you’ve decided to hire a domestic cleaning service to straighten out the chaos. Here are some valuable tips to help you choose the right one.
The right service
- Avoid brand new cleaning companies, as there is no way to know whether their employees have been properly trained and whether they are sustainable. Look for established services with a good reputation.
- Ask if the service you are looking at pays their employees a salary, or takes part of an hourly rate – the second option is not the best, as it can often mean unhappy workers.
- Don’t choose a service that only works on a long-term contract with high cancellation fees: if you want to cancel the service, you will need to pay punitive costs to get free.
- Security is important as this service will have access to your home. Ask them for some references and so some online research on the company.
Don’t opt for the first one you see. Rather speak to a few professional cleaners – look for consistency, flexibility and some guarantees.
