In these busy times, some of us are so occupied with work, kids, school, marriage, dating, friends, and all of the other things that make up our lives that it becomes necessary to hire someone to help us keep our home clean. Hiring a residential cleaning service can be worth every penny that is spent to pay someone to clean your house. It is a tedious chore that most people would rather not do.
If you have decided that you are going to hire someone to clean for you, you should first evaluate your situation and your budget to help you decide what type of cleaning company to hire. For example, if you need daily up keep of your home you should consider hiring a maid to come to your house and keep it tidy as well as do any scrubbing, laundry, or cooking that you would like done. Hiring a maid is more pricey, but if you do not have to or do not want to lift a finger, this is for you. You can even hire someone to work full time for you or even to live with you.
If your needs are less time consuming and you are willing to do things like tidy up, do the laundry and the cooking, then hiring a residential cleaning service is something that you should consider. Most cleaning services have their own list do tasks to accomplish, but they usually entail scrubbing bathrooms and kitchens, dusting, vacuuming and mopping floors. Some cleaning services will do minimal tidying up and some moving furniture to clean under it, but for the most part, the tidying up is your responsibility. The cleaning service will usually schedule your appointments in two or four week intervals and come in and clean your home. It is a good idea to keep the date the cleaning service will be at your home on a calendar in plain view so that you and your family will see it.
The day before the cleaning company comes, tidy up any clutter in your home and leave out any special instructions or cleaning products for the cleaning service. Get any laundry done that you have, including bathroom and kitchen rugs so they are fresh and clean and ready to be put back down on the clean floor after your home is cleaned.
If you are on a tight budget and would like to keep your cleaning price as low as possible, your home should be free of clutter so that the cleaners are able to clean your home in the least amount of time possible. Another way to keep your price low is to try to take preventative measures with cleaning issues such as mold in the shower by spraying cleaning products that are made to treat them. This will help you be able to go four weeks between cleanings instead of just two weeks. A few minutes every few days can save you a lot of money.
