When you are considering hiring a cleaning company to come into your home you probably want to make sure that they will do everything that you normally do. There’s no real point paying for someone to do that chore if they aren’t going to be as through right? So when you are shopping around for a maid service to take care of the cleaning of your home you probably want to look as much as their checklists as you do as their price. Not all cleaning groups are the same and they don’t always do the same things for the same price.
When you are looking at different home cleaning services ask for a copy of what they will do in a typical room. Most companies will do mopping, sweeping, vacuuming and dusting. These are the typical chores for just about every room in your home. No matter if you have carpet or hard flooring. But are they going to dust those pesky ceiling fans if you have the? How about emptying trashcans or washing the baseboards? Most companies but not all of them will perform these tasks so if they are important to you, you should ensure that they offer these services.
When it comes to the living room are you sure your knickknacks are cleaned as well as everything else. It’ so easy for people to skimp over the little decorations in the room so you want to ensure that it’s on their list of things to do. Another living room problem child is the couch. You don’t want a home cleaning service that will vacuum the floors and cushions but not lift the cushions to get what’s underneath. No one likes to think about what might lurk beneath the couch cushions but it is a job that should be done regularly.
Then you’re down to the two rooms that need the most care, the kitchen and the bathroom. If there is any room in the house that you don’t what your maid service to skimp out on its these two rooms. You need to make sure that along with the floors that the rest of the room gets sanitized, especially the counter tops and sinks. In the kitchen the exterior of all the appliances should be wiped and in the bathroom the tub, shower and toilets should be sparkling. There should be no question on what to expect in these rooms.
Hiring a home cleaning service is a great way to make sure your home is clean. There’s no shame in having someone come in and help out once a week or even once every other week but not all companies offer the same cleanings. You should talk to a variety of companies to see if their checklist match your own and hire the one that is the closest. If you’re are only concerned with the cost of the cleaning then you may be missing out on the big picture, having your home cleaned the way you want it to be cleaned.
