Hiring the services of a professional cleaner is an excellent way to keep your home (or office) clean and tidy.
This option means a professional cleaning crew comes to your home or business premises to do a thorough scrub, getting to all the nooks and crannies you rarely pay attention to.
Needless to say, hiring expert cleaning services every once in a while is not a bad idea at all.
If you have recently moved house, be it long-distance or local moving, professional cleaners can help spruce up your new place, and absolutely recommended particularly if you’re moving into a house that was previously inhabited. Doesn’t matter if the building manager says it was cleaned.
Here are some tips you need to remember when choosing expert cleaning services.
1. What’s their experience level?
You want a cleaning specialist that knows their stuff. Hiring someone to do a task for you only to realize they can’t do it right is always a bummer.
Therefore, when looking for professional cleaners, consider how long they have been offering the service for. More years in business can mean valuable experience gained. However, that is not always a given.
Which takes us to the next point.
2. Consider the reviews
Unlike yester years, these days it’s easy to do a background check on the company you’re considering for the job as there is a high likelihood they have an online presence of sorts.
Check online reviews to find out how satisfied (or not) previous customers are with the cleaning service you’re evaluating.
Sure, even the best product or service out there doesn’t always come with 5-star ratings from happy customers. But it’s easy to spot red flags in the reviews, especially if the disgruntled feedback from customers is one too many.
3. Cleaning products and equipment
When shopping for expert cleaning services, it’s not a bad idea to inquire about the cleaning products and equipment they use. Yes, the cleaning products are on them – unless you choose otherwise.
Avoid cleaners who cannot promise the necessary cleaning products and accessories (depending on the job) as their service is likely to be shoddy.
A reputable outfit does not skimp on cleaning products and equipment.
In an ideal world, you should opt for a company committed to green cleaning. You can ask them this directly or do your research to establish if their products are eco-friendly.
As an extra, observe if the company’s staff dons quality protective gear. That is the mark of a serious company.
4. Ask for a guarantee
Many service providers will talk a good game, but not everyone will deliver.
This is why when evaluating the cleaning companies, it is important to inquire if their service comes with a guarantee in the event they do not deliver as good an experience as they said they will.
As with all other industries, any company that has faith in its service will have no problem standing behind their work.
If this is an issue, you’re probably dealing with a team you won’t hear back from once you take it up with them because they failed to live up to their end of the bargain. You don’t need to take your business to such a company.
5. The services they offer
A well-established cleaning service will typically provide a host of cleaning services that run across the scale – indoor and outdoor cleaning, residential and commercial cleaning, sanitation services, and support cleaning services.
Ideally, this is the kind of cleaner you want to settle for: a company that takes pride in tackling head-on any task you throw at them.
In closing, we can say pricing is another factor to consider when selecting expert cleaning services, in addition to these five. But don’t make the mistake of hiring the first cleaner that promises you the best rates.
