You may choose to hire a house cleaning service once the furniture removal is over and you have settled into your new home to ensure that your previous premises are left in the best possible shape, or to employ it as an ongoing service for your new home.
Choosing a home cleaning service might be difficult. Remember that there are a lot of contractors out there, and you only have one opportunity to pick the perfect one. Your worst nightmare is to engage a cleaning service just to realize that the work was badly done and you’ll have to do it yourself again.
Before you hire a home cleaning service, there are a few things you should do and questions you should ask yourself.
Following a relocation, you may only have a limited amount of time to get things done. When interviewing cleaning companies, be sure to find out whether they can meet your deadlines. Make a detailed inventory of everything that needs to be done, including what needs to be cleaned, how it should be cleaned, and the expected outcome. Asking a contractor, for example, whether they can clean the floor is pointless. Ask them how long it will take them to do the task, and be specific about your desired outcome.
List all the requirements. This involves describing in detail how each work should be completed. For example, a wax or specialized cleaning chemical may be needed to bring the floor up to a specified degree of cleanliness. If surfaces need to be cleaned, state whether a quick wipe is sufficient or if more thorough cleaning is required. Another thing to inquire about is whether or not the contractor will offer the cleaning materials, or whether you’ll need to bring your own. Whenever a contractor promises you that they will provide all cleaning supplies, be essential to inquire precisely what products they will use and how much each product costs.
Payment. Remember to clarify precisely how the contractor is paid, when he or she receives their payment, and what remedies they will have if they fail to meet expectations. The payment mechanism should be included in the contract if required, as well as terms defining the process to be followed if there is a disagreement.
One-time cleaning jobs, like clearing out your old home after you’ve moved out, may not have a formal agreement as detailed as regular cleanings that require a regular relationship with the cleaning provider.
Ways to Keep Your Home Always Spotless
When it comes to keeping your home clean, there are several tips and tricks that you should know about. All of them imply that you should devote at least an hour a day to clearing your home of clutter and rubbish. To avoid having to bear an extra hour’s worth of responsibility for those who choose not to participate, this activity necessitates participation from every member of the household.
My mother was an expert at cleaning the home. One of her tricks is to wipe up spills as soon as they occur. The secret to keeping her home tidy was constantly taking care of everything as it came up and not putting things off.
Six children were born to the mom at the age of 29. We all lived on a dusty farm in Idaho, yet the home was always immaculate. The fact that work was always completed at the end of the day was an important factor. Toys were tucked aside for the time being. The kitchen was cleaned and the dishes were put away. Clothes had been folded and stored away. Nothing was going to sit around for a day. Mom was a bundle of energy who put in long days getting everything done. It didn’t seem as though she had a weak heart. She didn’t let herself become distracted or put off getting things done.
Putting things away was something our mother taught us to do when we were tiny. “There is a place for everything and everything has a place,” I believe the phrase said. For our toys, each of us had a spacious shelf that could accommodate all of our possessions.
