So, you have finally booked your very first cleaning appointment. Since this is a new experience, we here at Now It’s Clean believe there are a few important things to keep in mind to get the best out of your next house cleaning. This includes checking and preparing certain aspects of both the service and your home before a cleaner arrives. You may be asking why this is necessary, as a cleaner is hired for that very job, but even in homes there are certain things only you can take care of that cleaners will not. To learn about what to check before your cleaner arrives, we have come up with a list below.
Find the Right Schedule for You
If you’re booking periodically scheduled cleanings, you will want to be sure that it fits within your busy schedule. Since every cleaner on a team has different clients and job requirements, it’s important that you figure out a schedule beforehand so you can find the right cleaner to work alongside your specific schedule. The best way to organize this is by talking to your cleaning service about setting up a schedule for your cleanings.
When it is your first time hiring a cleaning service, you will likely have some questions, if not many. Luckily, you can ask as much as you’d like to your cleaning service and they will almost always have an answer for every question. This could be something as simple as the details they cover during your cleaning, or as analytic as asking for insurance policies, cleaning guarantees, etc. No questions are bad questions, as being left in the dark is the worst case scenario in this situation. Learn as much as you possibly can by asking your cleaners everything you want/need to know.
Prep Your Pets
Do your furry friends happen to be the more curious type? If this is the case, they may interfere with the business of these cleaners, resulting in a less than stellar end product. In order to ensure that your home cleaners do the best job possible, it is highly recommended that you find a separate room for antsy pets to stay in for the time being.
Write Down Notes
Even with an experienced cleaner’s top-tier knowledge, there are certain areas within your home a cleaner is unaware of. Because of this, it is highly advised that you write notes letting cleaners know about things such as the whereabouts of your cleaning supplies within the home, what spots you would like them to avoid, certain devices that may need to be maneuvered to be turned on, etc.
Declutter The Space
Even though a cleaner will take care of most of the “decluttering”, they do not know where certain things go in your home. When you have misplaced clothes, items, etc. around the home, you will want to be sure to take 20-30 minutes out of your day to put these items and clothing back where it belongs. Once you’ve done this, it clears the way for cleaners to try and cover every spot of your home during the clean.
