What You Should Do To Prepare For A Housekeeping Service

1. Research Your Cleaning Service

Before the cleaning service comes to your home, it’s essential to do thorough research to avoid any misunderstandings. Check out top-rated house cleaning services in your area and find out what they cover. It’s also important to ensure the business is properly insured before you hire.

2. Declutter for Your Cleaner

To make your cleaner’s job easier, pick up any clutter that may be on surfaces like countertops. The less clutter you have around, the easier it will be for your cleaner to focus on the important tasks.

3. Clear Away Dirty Dishes and Food Messes

Unless otherwise specified, most house cleaners don’t wash dishes or deal with food messes. Wash and put away your dirty dishes to make it much easier for your cleaner to clean your sink and the surrounding areas.

4. Communicate Any Questions or Special Requests

If you have any questions or special requests, communicate them to your cleaning professional. For example, if you have dusty blinds that need to be cleaned, bring this up beforehand.

5. Secure Fragile Items

To prevent any accidents, secure any fragile items that could easily get broken. If anything is especially valuable to you or needs to be cleaned in a specific way, let your cleaner know ahead of time.

6. Put Your Pets Away

During a house cleaning, it’s best to keep your pets away from your cleaner. They might get in the way and distract your cleaner, so it’s best to keep them behind closed doors until the cleaning is complete.

7. Know Proper House Cleaner Etiquette

Researching house cleaning etiquette beforehand will prevent any awkwardness or miscommunications between you and your cleaner. If you have any specific concerns or questions beforehand, make them known. As far as tipping house cleaners goes, it’s never a bad idea to give a little extra for a job well done.

8. Avoid Over-the-Top Expectations

When hiring a cleaning service, it’s essential to have clear expectations of what you want to be done. Going in with clear expectations is the key to happiness and a spotless clean. Remember that each cleaning service has a set of basic tasks, and any additional tasks may result in additional fees.
