Looking to hire a cleaning company in Ajax, Pickering, Oshawa, Whitby, Clarington, the Kawartha’s? The idea of the task can be daunting. Who do you trust? Do they do a thorough job? How much will they charge me? There are so many questions to think about and they are all very important.
As a house cleaning service in Durham Region, we want to ensure you are comfortable with us, but that you also trust that will treat your home as our own. That’s why we are providing you with some things you should consider before you hire any cleaning service company.
Ask If They Are Insured
If something happens to a cleaning company’s employee while they are cleaning your home, you will be directly responsible if the cleaning personnel is not able to return to work, because of an injury sustained while cleaning your property…UNLESS there are insured. Each of our employees is insured and bonded!
Don’t Hire Based On Price
The lowest price doesn’t always get the job done. Sometimes cleaning companies will advertise a low price just to get your business and then try to sell you added services that should already have been included. They may not also have insurance for their employees. So before you hire the lowest price, make sure you do a good background check! Also, remember that one price doesn’t fit all. Your home is different than another’s, and your home should be priced uniquely.
Hire A Company That Does Criminal Background Checks
While this is a priority for us, is not a priority for every cleaning company. Your home is a private and safe place for you and it should stay this way. If you can’t trust your cleaning company, you should not allow them into your home. Always ask to see criminal background checks.
Always Provide Your Expectations Of The Service Upfront
Do you prefer green products? Is there an area of the home that you prefer not to be cleaned? Are you hoping for more cleaning than usual? Express all of this when you get a quote and ensure that the company is fully capable of meeting your needs. If they can’t, then you can comfortably move on to the next company and appreciate the honesty you received. You never want to hire a cleaning company and be disappointed with the results.
Ask For References If You Are The Fence
It’s not easy to let strangers into your home. If you were referred a cleaning company by a friend or family, but are still unsure, ask the company to provide references from clients they work with. In some cases, after they have asked permission, they are willing to provide their contact information so you can speak with them. It’s a great way to be more comfortable with the situation.
