Scattered books, children’s toys, and dirty plates on the kitchen sink when you come home from a long day’s work? Maybe it is time to consider some help around the house. Over the years, professional home cleaning services have become more affordable for ordinary citizens to avail. But aside from a sparkling clean abode, what should first timers expect (and do) in order to make the most out of such services?
It is important to take note of the rates. Professional cleaning companies would not give out rates over the phone without surveying your homes first. This is usually done for free. Be clear whether the rates they charge are per hour or per session.
Inclusion and policies
Clarify with your home cleaning company in Auckland about the inclusions and limitations of their services as well as your own needs and limitations. Some companies do not clean pet waste, mold, and exteriors. Discussing this prior to the day itself can save both parties from hassles and misunderstandings.
Simple cleaning is appreciated
Putting the socks in the laundry or putting magazines off the kitchen counter are small gestures that your cleaners appreciate. It helps makes them concentrate on harder jobs like cleaning the toilet or washing pile of dishes in the sink.
Hiring a cleaner is like welcoming a stranger to your homes. Be vigilant. Lock important things in secure places and do not leave important valuables lying around. A simple test of honesty, by intentionally leaving a couple of dollars out in the open, does the trick. If a dollar is missing, then your cleaner is not to be trusted.
A thank you note, a box of sweets or some tip can help brighten your cleaner’s day. It can even inspire her to work harder and better the next time you call her p for a job.
A clean home is a happy home. Do not hesitate to ask for some help from trusted home cleaning companies to know the joys of coming home to a clean home.
