House cleaning services provide a much needed service to many households. With both the husband and wife holding down full-time jobs, there are some things that just do not get done around the house. This is where a good North Haven House Cleaning service comes in handy. For those considering hiring a cleaning service, there are a few important factors to consider.
A few questions to ask a prospective house cleaning service:
How many years has the company/individual been in business?
Are they bonded and insured in case something gets broken or stolen? It is not wise to hire the company if they are not insured and bonded.
Do you send out a group of cleaners or individuals?
How long does the average cleaning take?
Is it okay if the homeowner is not home?
Are background and security checks done before hiring?
Does the North Haven House Cleaning service provide their own cleaning solutions, vacuums, brooms, etc or is the homeowner expected to supply them. If they supply the cleaners, what type do they use?
Is there a list provided of jobs included in the cleaning? Are there any extra fees for certain things, like windows?
What are the basic fees?
Ask for references of current and past customers.
You can also ask around to family, friends and neighbors to see if they have used a house cleaner in the past. It is best to compare several services before making a decision. It is not wise to base the choice on price alone. Do a comparison to see which company is the best fit for your needs. For example, one company may charge extra to do laundry but another may include it in their basic fees. Make sure there is a clear understanding of what is expected to be done. It is always a good idea to have a written contract that spells out what the fees are, when the cleaning will be done, what cleaning will be done and when payment is expected. Having a written contract can prevent issues down the road in the off chance that something goes awry.
