How to select a cleaner
There are plenty of cleaners and cleaning companies out there, a quick search on the internet will show you a stream of them nearby just within seconds. The trick is to make the best choice from this mass.
1. Turn to professionals
A professional cleaner or cleaning company can make your life a lot easier, while amateurs or laymen can make the condition in your home even worse. Therefore, it is good to have an eye on who is doing the job professionally and who is not.
Since this requires years of experience and we want to spare you the trial and error, at Good Cleaners Finder we only have hand-picked and qualified personnel who are trustworthy and friendly in their approach to the job. This is important because cleaners are an invasive external force so to speak and have access to areas of your daily and personal life. Especially when you go on vacation and entrust the key to a cleaner, you want to be sure that everything is in order.
Most cleaners are absolutely trustworthy, but a few will abuse that trust. Don’t hand over keys to a company without fully investigating their past and checking references from real customers.
If you can’t find real references on the company’s website, Google the company name to learn more about their work.
At Good Cleaners Finder, we pride ourselves on our discretion, so we don’t reveal who our clients are. You won’t find any personal customer information on our website, but we do have a good history that you can research online.
2. Verify the competence
Many people think that a cleaner is only concerned with dusting, wiping surfaces, or vacuuming. However, there is much more that goes into it, some of which becomes much more specific. This includes, for example, dealing with red wine stains, the proper cleaning of old and valuable carpets, or the like, where mishandling can maximize the damage.
It is best to ask if these areas are covered and how they will be handled in the event of an emergency before booking.
Most home cleaning companies should have professional equipment that allows them to go beyond the basics. A quick look at their blog should give you an idea of their approach to cleaning.
If you are looking for someone to stay with you and help you on an everyday basis with all the chores, then you might be looking for a housekeeper. You can read about the difference between a housekeeper and a cleaner in our blog and find out which one suits you best.
3. Random inspections and regular feedback.
When a new working relationship is formed between you and a cleaner or a cleaning company, it is essential to make sure you have open and clear communication. You certainly have some things in your household that you would like to have done in a very specific way. If you communicate this clearly from the beginning, the cleaner can adjust to this and take your wishes into account. This will save you a lot of frustration and time.
You also make it easier for the cleaner if you don’t sit permanently on her neck and analyze every speck of dust, which is unpleasant and certainly doesn’t ensure better results. Therefore, check rather randomly and trust in the skill of the professional. If you focus on more important things, the investment in a cleaner will pay off even more.
That’s all you need to know when choosing a cleaner.
Now it is up to you; make the right choice.
