Determine Your House Cleaning Needs

Before you start looking for a cleaning company, you need to determine what services you need. Are you looking for weekly or monthly cleaning? Do you need deep cleaning services or just basic maintenance? Do you need cleaning services for your home or your workplace? Knowing what you need will help narrow down your search.

Research and Read Reviews

We can’t overstate this, always research your cleaning companies! They are not all the same unfortunately. Once you have determined your needs, start looking into house cleaning companies that can meet your requests. 

Look for companies that offer the services you need and check their websites for information about their experience and credentials. Here are a few questions you should ask yourself when researching:

  • How long has the company been in business? 
  • Is the cleaning company local?
  • Are the cleaning technicians insured and bonded?
  • Do the cleaning technicians complete background checks?
  • What is their service guarantee?

You should also read reviews from previous clients to get a sense of their quality of service. Head over to their Google listing and other online review platforms such as Yelp and Facebook. Run a Google search of their company name to see if they’ve been in the news or have any other online reviews. 

When reading reviews, take note of the dates of the reviews and the rating. If they received a negative rating, read the review and see how the company handled it. Did the negative review seem legitimate? Did the company respond respectfully and apologetically? Do they have a high number of bad reviews? Do the good reviews seem real and sincere?

We consistently receive 5 star reviews on Google and Facebook.

Check for Licensing and Insurance

Like we stated above, it’s important to make sure that the cleaning company you choose is licensed and insured. This protects you in case of accidents or damages during the cleaning process. You should also verify that their employees are bonded and undergo background checks. 

At H&R Cleaning, our cleaning technicians are insured, bonded, and receive background checks. They are also highly trained.

Quotes and Contracts

When it comes to hiring a house cleaning company, you may be tempted to go with the cheapest option. But this doesn’t always mean that you will get the most “clean” for your buck. In fact, it may leave you in a worse situation than before. Some things to consider when considering the cost of cleaning: 

  • Does the cleaning company offer a free quote? 
  • Do they actually walk through your home to develop the quote?
  • What is your budget for house cleaning?
  • Can a reputable cleaning company offer the services you need for your budget? 
  • Will the cleaning company work with you to develop a quote that helps achieve your cleaning goals and staying on budget? 
  • Do you have to sign a contract or can you cancel at any time? 
  • Do they have any hidden or additional fees? 

Choose Experience and Professionalism

While pricing is important, it is not the only factor to consider. You want to choose a cleaning company that has experience and professionalism. A good cleaning company provides good service consistently. This saves you the trouble of getting the cleaning taken are of – either by scheduling the cleaning technician to come back out or doing it yourself. Also, a quality company gives you peace of mind knowing you can rely on their work and trust them in your home. These qualities are worth what you pay and actually save you time in the long run. Also, consider how they communicate with you and whether they are responsive to your needs.

Finding a cleaning company requires a bit of research and consideration but it’s well worth the work. After deciding your needs, research your local cleaning companies. Check their credentials, experience, and reviews. Find out their service guarantee and service agreement options.
