As the New Year approaches, we all start to look at our lives and homes, thinking about what we want to do in the year ahead. Many decide it’s time to hire a professional cleaner to give them more time for other things. This includes more time for family, leisure and work, reducing the stress and pressure felt in our ever-busy lives, as well as creating a beautifully clean home to enjoy even more than usual. However, when you start searching for a cleaner, it can be hard to know what to look for.
Are you looking for a cleaner in Surrey? Here are our top tips for finding the right one.
Tip 1: Do They Offer Flexibility?
Not everyone wants a ‘once a week’ service, so it’s important to find a cleaning company who work around your needs with the flexibility to clean more or less often depending on what’s required. For example, you may choose to schedule regular fortnightly cleaning for general domestic tasks, but would like to request some extra help to get ready for visitors over Christmas time or when you’re busy with the kids during the Summer holidays.
Tip 2: Can They Help You in a Stain Emergency?
We’ve all been there. That moment of horror as the red wine hits the carpet or your new sofa has picked up a stain which you just can’t get rid of. Ask potential cleaners about the types of deep clean services they provide. This should include upholstery and carpet cleaning to remove stubborn stains without altering the texture or colour of the fabric and fibres.
Tip 3: Do They Cater for Your Budget?
It’s always better to be upfront with a domestic cleaning company about your budget, as they will usually want to visit your home to give you the most accurate quote possible. Save time by discussing this from the start. That said, beware of choosing companies that offer rock-bottom prices. Always check a company’s experience and ensure you’re hiring those who can do a professional job.
Tip 4: Do You Like the Way They Work?
The most professional cleaning companies will take a methodical approach to cleaning, whether it’s for a one-off clean or a regular task. Ask any potential cleaners about their processes – they may have checklists, for example, to make sure everything you’ve asked for is covered, or if they can supply you with a list of domestic cleaning jobs they cover. A good cleaning company will work with you to establish your needs, but also have a proactive attitude if they spot areas they can help you with.
