Questions to ask before hiring house cleaning services in Colorado

Hiring house cleaning services in Colorado can be a great way to take some of the stress out of your day, week, and month. Your cleaners can come as often as you need to help keep your home clean so you can focus on other parts of your busy schedule. However, it’s important that you properly vet the crew that’s going to be cleaning your home. Our team at Home Cleanology understands this so we have six questions you should ask a cleaning company before hiring them to clean your home.

How long have you been in business?

By asking a company how long they’ve been in business you can get an idea of how established their processes are. If they’ve only been around for a couple of years, there are probably still some kinks that need to be worked out and they could be lacking in some areas of expertise. A home cleaning service that’s been around for 10 to 15 years has seen most problems that will arise on the job.

Do you pre-screen your employees before hiring?

When you hire a cleaning crew, you’re trusting them to come into your home and attend to the place where you live. In some cases, you’re not going to be home when the cleaners are in your home. This means that the people who clean your home should be trustworthy and have high integrity. Ask how the cleaning company screens their employees before hiring them to ensure that you’re getting cleaners who you can trust.

Does your team use a checklist that I can see?

You want to know what the cleaners are going to be doing while they’re at your home. Not only do you know the areas that won’t be cleaned, but also so you can verify that the work is getting done. Ask the cleaning company to see a checklist of the areas of your home that are supposed to be cleaned so you exactly what to expect from them.

What do I need to do before the cleaners get here?

It’s not uncommon for companies to require you to pick up loose clothing off the floor or tidy the bathroom counter. Although, not all home cleaning services require you to do the same level of picking up before they come to do their part. Make sure that you have a clear understanding of what they expect from you before they get there.

What should I do with my pets?

Depending on what kind of pet you have, they can sometimes get in the way of the cleaning crew doing their job. Additionally, some cleaning chemicals can be harmful to your pets if they’re exposed to them immediately after application. Ask the cleaning company whether you need to put your dog in the backyard, crate your cat, or if they’re fine continuing to roam the house while they’re there.

How much do you charge?

You have a budget to stick to for your cleaning services. Be sure to ask how much they charge before hiring the service. You would hate to bring them on then be shocked by the price tag after the first week of service. Know what you’re getting into before you sign a contract.
