A few things to keep in mind when you are ready to hire a cleaning service:
Ask for proof of insurance. Being insured is not only important for you, the homeowner, but also for the company. No one foresees accidents happening, but inevitably they do occur. Whether it might be a broken knick knack, damaged countertop or stained carpet, insurance will cover to have these items repaired in the case an accident does occur.
Always contact more than one company. There isn't just one cleaning company, so why limit yourself? Contact 2 to 3 house cleaning companies to get a good feel for fair pricing, included services and to also find the best personality fit. Make sure to have a list of questions written down that you want to ask and record each companies answers. This will help you in making the best final decision!
Who is coming into your house? This is probably one of the most important questions you can ask. Will it be the same person(s) each time, or will it change each cleaning? Are the people background checked? You want to get to know and TRUST the people coming into your home. Consistency is key.
What forms of payment do they accept? Cash, check and credit card are the most common types of payment a house cleaning and maid services accept. Find out payment policies, prepayment discounts and if you plan on tipping the staff, you may want to ask the policy for that as well.
Cancellation policy. Finding out the cancellation policy for house cleaning and maid service is extremely important. Most services charge a cancellation fee if not cancelled within 24-48 hours. But, this varies on a per company basis.
