It can be freeing to finally outsource your house cleaning to a professional service.
Not only does it save you time, but for the elderly or the disabled, it can also alleviate the stress of not being able to do the work themselves. It, therefore, provides independence.
Before hiring your housecleaning service however, you should have a clear idea of exactly what you want to be done in order to get the most out of the hired services.
Make a list of everything you would like the cleaning service to do for you.
For example, do you want them to clean the windows and oven? Or just dusting, hoovering and a wet clean of the bathroom and kitchen surfaces? Do you want a deep clean of cupboards and drawers?
Do you need the floors cleaned? Could your carpets and upholstery benefit from a professional clean?
How many rooms do you have? Do you have pets which create excessive dirt?
All of these questions need to be considered as you know your home better than anyone.
Once you have your list of jobs that need doing you need to work out how often you would like them carried out.
Do you want a one-off deep clean followed by a weekly cleaner? Or someone who comes in to run the duster and hoover over twice a week?
Can some of your specified jobs – like window, carpet and upholstery cleaning – be carried out monthly or quarterly?
You also need to have an idea of how many hours you think it may take for the professional cleaners to clean your home. Obviously a one-bedroom flat is going to take less time than a five-bedroom house. You can get guidance on this from the team at Swift Services.
