Thinking About Hiring a Professional Cleaning Company for Your Home—Should I, or Shouldn’t I?

Hiring a professional cleaning company is a step many people are taking. For centuries people have been having others clean their home, often castle, but usually this privilege was for the well-to-do only. Today, however, with most adults working outside the home with little time for home cleaning, the use of professional cleaners has soared. In fact, it is no longer just the rich and famous who can have their homes cleaned for them. (a note: in many parts of the world ordinary families live in hovels, and it’s still only the rich who have help and even decent homes) So, if you are considering hiring professional help for cleaning your home, there are some things to think about.

Should I or Shouldn’t I?

  • First and foremost, you should consider how you feel about cleaning your home. Is it a task you absolutely dread or is it a task you like doing as you can do it the exact way you like it done?
  • How much time does it take to clean your home and keep it clean? Is this time spent time you have or would you rather spend that time relaxing or with family and friends? Be sure to take into consideration the value of your time in dollars and cents. The amount you come up with will often pay for professional cleaning.
  • What is your budget? Is there a place to add professional cleaning? Most companies offer a free estimate to help you decide.
  • How often do you need cleaning done? Of course at least once a week is best, but there are other options as well. Too, it is sometimes smart to use professional cleaners for special occasions such as move-outs, entertaining large groups, or a deep Spring cleaning.
  • What do you need to have cleaned? Is it the whole living area or just the windows, rugs, or floors? Most cleaning companies offer services such as floor stripping and waxing as an individual service.
  • What do you need to have cleaned? Is it the whole living area or just the windows, rugs, or floors? Most cleaning companies offer services such as floor stripping and waxing as an individual service.
  • Are you concerned about having strangers in your home? Reputable cleaning companies will have their workers insured and bonded, but special, breakable treasures which cannot be replaced can be a worry.
  • How will a worker treat pets if you are not there keep an eye on things?
  • Will a cleaning company use environmentally friendly cleaning products? When researching companies in your area, ask that question, as many do.
  • Will you have to provide cleaning equipment such as a vacuum, bucket, cleaning rags, broom, and scrub brush? If all cleaning equipment, as well as cleaning products, are supplied this will help offset the cost of hiring professionals.
  • What guarantee is there that the job will be done to your satisfaction? Most cleaning companies put a satisfaction guarantee in the contract. Such considerations as customer satisfaction surveys, frequent inspections, and a direct help-line are also used by cleaning companies.
  • How long is the contract for? Will you need to agree to many months of service or are shorter time commitments available?
  • How do others feel about cleaning companies in your area? Ask friends and family for references. Companies that are serious about their business will have a website detailing their services and how they feel they can do the cleaning job right. There will also be star ratings and input from others who have used that particular service.

Hiring a professional cleaning company is something to take your time thinking about.
