We realize that deciding to hire a home cleaning service can be a tough decision. One of the many reasons that you are searching for a home cleaning service is that you are busy and do not have time for cleaning all of the time. Even though you are already pressed for time, rushing through the decision process for finding a maids service is not a wise choice. It’s important to know which questions to ask before deciding which cleaning service is the right fit for you.
Here are 5 questions everyone should ask before hiring a home cleaning service:
- Are you a licensed business? Are you bonded and insured?
Make sure that your cleaning service is a legitimate business. Another thing to look for is whether the cleaning service is insured as well. It’s important to make sure that their employees are insured for your protection from accidents that might happen during cleaning in your home. Ask for proof of insurance. If the cleaning service cannot provide proof, then walk away.
- What if something breaks during a home cleaning service?
Another reason why asking about insurance first is to make sure that your property is taken care of just in case. We treat your home as if it was our own.
- Who will have access to my home?
If you choose to give access to your home to a cleaning service while you are not there, be sure to ask the service about their security measures for keeping your keys safe. Some clients have home security systems. Learn the policy of the home cleaning service for keeping your home security system code safe as well.
- Does the home cleaning service perform a background check for employees?
A home cleaning service that takes your home and your family’s security seriously will be a business who performs background checks for their employees. Be sure to ask about the business’s policy before hiring the cleaning service to come into your home.
- Do you need to provide the cleaning supplies?
Professional cleaning services should provide their own supplies with the option to use your own chemicals and supplies that you provide. It’s important to have this option of using your own provided cleaning supplies if you are concerned about using certain chemicals in your home.
Be sure to ask any home cleaning service that you might hire these questions before signing anything or handing your keys over.
