What to look for in a house cleaning company

Updated: Mar 30

Keeping a clean and tidy home is essential for our physical and mental well-being. But with busy schedules, it can be challenging to find the time and energy to maintain a clean house. Hiring a house cleaner can be a great solution to this problem. However, finding the right company or person for the job can be overwhelming. Susie Maids of Nashville says the following. 

1. Experience and References:

When hiring a house cleaner, it is essential to ask about their experience and references. A cleaner with years of experience is likely to be more efficient and effective in their work. References from previous clients can also help you determine if the cleaner is reliable and trustworthy.

2. Cleaning Supplies and Equipment:

Before hiring a cleaner, ask about the cleaning supplies and equipment they use. A professional cleaner should have all the necessary supplies and equipment needed to clean your home thoroughly. If you have specific cleaning products you prefer to use in your home, communicate this with the cleaner.

3. Credentials:

Make sure that the cleaner you hire is insured, and licensed. This will ensure that you are protected in case of any damages or accidents that may occur during the cleaning process.

Christy owner of Susie Maids in Brentwood TN says a reputable cleaning company will have insurance. Some of the cheaper services are just out to make a buck.  If one of them comes in and ruins your wood floors the homeowner will have no recourse. Damages could be as high as a grand or more.

4. Communication Skills:

Effective communication is crucial when working with a house cleaner. The cleaner should be able to listen to your needs and preferences and communicate their own needs and limitations. Clear communication will help ensure that both parties are on the same page and that the cleaning process runs smoothly.

5. Flexibility and Availability:

It is essential to hire a house cleaning company who is flexible and available to work according to your schedule. Make sure to discuss your cleaning needs and schedule with the cleaner before hiring them to avoid any misunderstandings or scheduling conflicts.

6. Pricing and Payment:

Before hiring a house cleaner, make sure to discuss their pricing and payment options. Some cleaners charge an hourly rate, while others charge a flat fee for the entire cleaning job. Make sure to agree on the pricing and payment terms before the cleaning process begins.
