Hiring a cleaner for your home or business can be a great investment. You can free up more time to focus on other tasks and activities. You also get the benefit of a clean environment without having to do the work. Across North America, janitorial and cleaning services are predominantly done in-house, with only 26% of 2020 respondents saying they outsource their cleaning and maintenance. Meanwhile, 46% said it’s not an option for them. However, if you’re in the position to hire a cleaner, make sure you ask them these questions in order to find the right person for you.
1. What Services Do You Offer?
There are many aspects to cleaning and you should make sure you don’t get caught off guard. Ask them exactly what’s included in their cleaning services. If the cleaner doesn’t include what you’d like, ask another company. By figuring out which company to hire early on by finding out what they can do, you can make sure you know exactly what you’re getting for your money.
2. Do You Have Insurance?
While a good cleaner will always be very careful with your space and your belongings, sometimes items may break or injuries may occur. If something needs to be replaced or someone gets hurt, you want to be sure your cleaner and their company will be the ones to cover the expenses. If you don’t discuss if they have insurance before hiring your cleaner, you may end up paying out of pocket for damages or injuries that occurred when cleaning your home.
3. Do You Have Any Testimonials?
Before you hire any company, you should ensure they’re a good candidate for the job, especially if you’re hiring them to clean your home. Ask them for testimonials or read through their online reviews. By reading how comments from those who’ve previously hired the company you’re interested in, you can hear honest information about their experience. If a cleaner doesn’t have any reviews or they’re mostly negative, they might not be the company for you. Reading reviews can make it much easier to find a qualified cleaner in your area.
