Hiring a professional cleaning company to carry out the exhausting task of cleaning your dirty house for you can be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. But if it is your first time to hire a cleaning company, what should you expect them to clean?
Will they wash your clothes for you? Do their services include changing sheets? Will the cleaners wipe your walls? Will they tidy up your mess?
Well, the answer is not the same for all cleaning companies. There are some companies that will do more than others. But, here are at least the standard coverage of what a professional cleaner should clean in your home:
- Vacuum your floors.
- Wipe or mop your floors.
- Clean your bathroom (shower, bathtub, toilet, and sink).
- Clean your bedroom.
- Wipe your windows.
- Dust your furniture and electric appliances.
- Wash your dishes.
- Wipe your countertops.
- Wipe your tables.
- Take out your trash.
- Sweep your lawn.
It’s important to note, though, that some cleaning companies may skip cleaning some items or areas in your house if you have not been clear with the areas you want thoroughly cleaned. So, even before the cleaner is sent to your home, it will be wiser to clarify with the company which parts of your homes you want taken care of. Some cleaning companies even offer doing the following chores for free:
- Folding your laundry.
- Changing your sheets.
- Tidying up your things.
- Ironing your clothes.
- Doing your laundry.
Don’t forget that not all companies offer these additional services free of charge. Other cleaning companies only offer these at an additional charge.
Also, most cleaning companies charge by the hour. It’s very important for you to set a cap on the number of hours the cleaner should do the cleaning – otherwise, your bill could skyrocket. In setting a cap on the hours, you can talk to the company prior to cleaning and ask for an estimation of how many hours it should take for the cleaning to be completed. From there, you can set a limit on the hour worked by the cleaner, so you won’t have to overspend.
