Picking a great cleaning company in your area can be very difficult to do, but when you find a great one, you will keep them for a very long time. There are many things to look for when it comes to a quality cleaner, but sometimes you can’t tell until you have actually had them out to clean your home.
So, what are the characteristics of a great cleaning company that you should look for when researching your new cleaner? Here are some of the things you should look for.
The first thing you will most likely discover about any business in the modern era of social media and the Internet is how good a business’s reputation is. Reputations online are usually a good point to start when seeking out a new cleaning company. Facebook and other similar social media reviews are a great place to start, as you can see customer reviews with the click of a mouse. Generally, if there are a large number of reviews on a company’s Facebook, you can decide for yourself whether they are worth looking into or not. Make sure you spend some time reading the reviews carefully and see how the company also responds to negative comments. This will help you decide whether you want them in your home.
Honesty is also something you can find out about a business just from their social media accounts. Do they have a good connection with the local community? Can they produce a range of satisfied customers? Do the reviews show their integrity as a business, and are their public responses honest?
Quick and Thorough
Does the company claim they perform the tasks required with speed and meticulously? When you are paying top dollar for a cleaning company, you want to know they will get the job done correctly in the shortest possible time. Professionals should be able to clean a 3-4-bedroom home in 2-3 hours.
Are their prices easy to understand? Are their prices fair compared to other companies you have received a quote from? Are the costs ‘all-inclusive’? Do they supply all the cleaning products, or is that an extra cost you need to consider? If you are only after a basic home clean, pricing should be fairly standard across the board between cleaning companies and their competitors. If one company is expecting twice as much as another, you should question why.
Licensed and Insured
Find out whether the company is licensed and insured. If they are not protected,and something goes wrong on your property, you could be liable, and end up out of pocket. Anyone who does work on your property should have some sort of coverage to ensure you are protected. Ask the company for their details before you book them in.
Depending on what the scope of your cleaning work is within your home, will make a difference between pricing and when a company can perform the job. If it a massive task at the end of a lease or if you just sold your home, then cleaning will be very in-depth, and pricing will vary. Get at least three quotes from cleaning companies in your area and do your research to find the best option.
