Finding a Reputable Cleaning Service

Maid services are staffed by trained professional cleaners and offer a range of options, like from regular weekly or biweekly cleanings to special cleanings for “tougher” areas like the basement or garage, and even one-time cleaning for certain occasions.

Interviewing Prospects

 

Before you hire Housekeeping Panama City Beachservice, it’s important to interview different providers. Ask for client references and talk to them. Remember that these cleaners are going to spend quite an amount of time in your house. Not only should you be comfortable having them around, but you should also find them trustworthy.

 

Policies about Cleaning Supplies

 

Usually, house cleanings will bring their own cleaning supplies (cleaning solutions, vacuums, brooms, etc.), but there are services that require you to provide your own. To ensure everything goes well, just ask them. If they provide their materials and there is someone in your household who is allergic to certain substances, tell them early on.

 

Defining Areas to Be Cleaned

 

It’s good to sit down and make a short note of the areas of your home that you want them to work on. If you have any special requests, you should inform them in advance, and you should also know ahead of time whether or not these requests can be accommodated.

 

Special Charges Related to Type of Residence

 

Sometimes, the type of home you have can affect your final charges. If you live in a condominium or apartment, for example, your cleaner may be required to get a special permit or clearance to be able to enter the premises. If you live in a townhouse or duplexes, parking can be an issue for the cleaner, especially if your home is one of many units in a single complex. Another factor can be a house being part of a gated community. This is the kind of surprise you wouldn’t want, so be sure to ask them about this before making arrangements.

 

Discussing Payments in Advance

 

Finally, make it a point to discuss payments with a cleaning service before you give them your commitment – yes, even before their first visit. Either they already have an established system, or they may let you make suggestions. What’s important is, both sides are clear on the prices, the schedule of payments, and the particular services to be rendered.
