What to Expect from a Cleaning Company

If you have decided to hire a cleaning company or maid service to keep your home clean, you may not be sure what to expect!  Here are our tips to help you know what to do when you housekeeper arrives.

Make a list of chores you want doing.  If you are paying by the hour, it is important that your cleaner knows what tasks they are to complete.  If they aren’t given a list, they cannot fill their scheduled hours effectively, and this ends up wasting everyone’s time!  It is simple as giving a quick list in priority order for them to work through.

Be there when they first arrive, but you do not have to stay.  Most cleaners are happy to get on while you are home, but it is not necessary to stay in the house all the time.  As long as someone is there to let them in and hand over a list of tasks, that should be enough.  You might want to be there when they leave so they can debrief you on what they did and if there were any issues or problems.

Any time you have any issues with your cleaner, it is best to mention it to them and if you cannot resolve with them directly, go back to the agency.  You do not want bad feeling to fester!
