What do you need to know about home cleaning?
The most important thing about hiring a cleaner is that they be someone you can trust. They will have access to your property and belongings, possibly during times when you are not present, and as such it is crucial that you check a cleaner’s background before hiring them. Ask to see customer reviews from previous or other ongoing jobs, as this is a good indicator of how reliable and trustworthy they are. This can also show how experienced they are with more specific tasks, such as deep cleaning.
Being a cleaner does not require qualifications, but they may have passed certain college or industry courses. They may also be a part of a tradesmen’s organisation such as the British Cleaners’ Association, which is a good sign as such groups typically enforce high standards and codes of conduct for their members.
Give careful consideration to the type of service that you want. You may only want a single visit, such as for spring cleaning or cleaning a property at the end of a tenancy, or you may want a regular service. A good way to figure this out is considering how quickly your property can get dirty, as obviously this will be a factor in choosing how often a cleaner visits. Also consider which rooms you want cleaned and what level of care each one requires. Be sure to write down certain quirks of your property that your cleaner will need to know, such as whether certain doors lock automatically or if certain objects are particularly delicate. You may also prefer that certain products be used, and if this is the case let your cleaner know in advance as you may have to provide them yourself.
Be sure to check that your choice has adequate coverage relating to accidental damage and liabilities. For individual tradesmen or smaller businesses, this might not be something they provide, so be wary. You should also ensure that they have a policy in place for if you are not satisfied with the quality of their work.
How much does home cleaning cost?
Cleaners will usually charge by the hour at a flat rate. The cost will depend on the size of your property, where you like in UK and also how regularly you want a cleaning service. Obviously if you want a regular service the cost will be ongoing. Make sure you get multiple quotes and take time to consider them before making your final choice. Compare the prices with customer reviews to make sure you are getting someone who is trustworthy as well as reasonable with their costs.
