Professional cleaning services is growing in popularity. A primary factor for this growth is that businesses and homeowners appreciate the quality of work and the challenges of handling this job in-house. If you are a prospective employer of professional cleaning services, there are several ways to get the best from these professionals. We have listed below some of these factors.
Commercial cleaning services are expected to cater to most domestic chores. There are certain exceptions like removing black mold which falls into the domain of other experts because of the health risks involved. Setting up a clear communication line between the professionals executing the job, the company and the client can minimize potential gaps between service delivery and your expectations.
Every Minute Counts
For a commercial cleaning professional, every minute counts and in broad terms, about 2.5 hours would be needed to clean up one-bedroom home, assuming that your home has not been cleaned for long. Most commercial cleaning services are equipped with a list of things that would be completed within the allotted time. Going through this list right at the start of the job is a great way to tweak the list pushing some less important tasks down (which you could probably do yourself later).
Have Clear Understanding of Off-limit Tasks
Most commercial cleaning is charged by the hour though the nature and extent of work would also be considered. Relocating heavy furniture, external windows, external walls, or similar tasks that are traditionally more risky and time consuming are charged higher. If you do superficial cleaning like picking up toys strewn around, generally organizing the place for the cleaning service staff, you can stretch your dollar. A de-cluttered space gives more time for the team to carry out the assigned task correctly.
The mess created by pets, blood, and urine, etc. remains off limits for most cleaning service personnel. Understanding these elements in advance will help smooth flow of work when the professionals arrive.
Prepare a list of things that you would not want the professional to touch. These would typically include computers/TV screens, jewelry of all descriptions and other delicate items.
When you are satisfied with the job, small gestures of appreciation can make the professionals happy and enthusiastic when you need their services.
