The 5 Best ways to hire a Cleaner or Housekeeper when looking for Professional Cleaning Services Brisbane
When you have finally got to the point where you really need to let go of doing the majority of the housekeeping and cleaning chores, it can be daunting taking that first step.
Who can I find to be flexible enough to work around my preferred house cleaning times each week?
How do I know who I can trust to do my cleaning?
Will my new cleaner do all the cleaning and housekeeping tasks the way I like them done?
Do professional cleaners have good personalities? Will my professional cleaner have attention to detail and be attentive to the little things?
I want whoever is coming into my home to be easy to talk to and be great around my kids if they’re home and be OK with our pets…
These are very common questions and concerns and so it pays to do a little homework before hiring a professional cleaner or housekeeper.
These days, there is so much information at our fingertips with the Internet at our disposal. We can search on Google and find out just about anything about just about anything.
The problem is, there is so much information available on most things we commonly search for. It can be so confusing to try and work out what is ‘real’ and what is just sales jargon.
To create a ‘short list’ for starters, look for great testimonials and reviews that are varied and appear genuine. This should give you at least 2 or 3 excellent options to make enquiries with.
Word of Mouth is still one of the best ways to find that service provider that really shines. If people are talking about their Cleaner like they are the best thing since sliced bread, you can believe it.
People have different needs so it is always a good idea to identify if the reasons that some people are raving about a great cleaner are the same reasons that specifically matter to you.
After all, there’s cleaning, and then there’s cleaning.
The reason that it can be an advantage to choose a professional cleaning company is that when there are a whole team of cleaners and they are all getting a good wrap from existing Customers, it is usually because the organisation has a great culture and sound ethics.
Most often they have a great system of engaging cleaners through a stringent shortlisting and interview process. Team training and Client feedback also plays a big part of producing quality service delivery from the team.
Once you have created your own shortlist from researching and talking to people, make a list of questions around those aspects of house cleaning that are really important to you.
You are no doubt a little short on spare time right now however it sure is worth the effort to get it right when looking for a great fit for you.
Take the time to think about the finer details so that you can be thorough. After all, you want to find really good help and you want it to work out the first time.
OK, so now you have done your research and have your eye on a few good choices of professional cleaning services.
It’s time to make contact and ask the important questions. You should get a feel right away for the person on the other end of the phone.
From here, you can pretty much go with your instincts. Find out how they typically get you started and make sure you are comfortable with it.
It takes time to build trust and rapport and we are talking about your home, your family and of course, your standard of cleaning and housekeeping.
This article has been all about hiring a new cleaner or housekeeper, however the same principles apply to hiring someone for a bond clean, a spring clean or even if you require any type of commercial cleaning.
