If you want to clean your space deep, consider calling residential cleaners who are experts in providing exceptional attention to detail. Especially if you like to keep your surroundings clean but have no time to do so.

Hiring a cleaning service provider makes you stress-free as they care for most things. However, you can maximize this experience by keeping certain things in mind and not committing the usual mistakes.

To help you avoid some basic errors when it comes to cleaning your home, Nobody Cleans Like Mom Ltd has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make when hiring a house cleaner.

1. Choosing the lowest price
The lowest price isn’t always the best choice. You may not get a qualified cleaner, your needs may not be satisfied, and often, the lowest-priced cleaners will cut corners to get the job done quicker.

2. Not checking credentials
Are they insured? Licensed? Do they have WCB coverage? Just because they said “yes” doesn’t mean they do. You have the right and obligation to request to see proof of all credentials. This protects the company, employees, and you as the customer should anything happen to your home or the worker in your home.

3. Picking the first company
You have the right to shop in every industry, and you should! Especially when it comes to cleaning services. We suggest enquiring about three different service providers. Write a list of questions to ask and give them as much information about your home to ensure they can give you the closest quote possible. Ask for references and proof of credentials.

4. Waiting for too long to have your home cleaned
Don’t wait until you can’t see through your glass shower doors or your tub is black. Waiting too long in between cleans does not save you money. It takes more time to deep clean every four to eight weeks than it does to have regular services every two weeks.

5. Comparing the new cleaners with old ones
We understand your previous cleaner could clean your home at that time. However, there is also a reason why they aren’t your cleaner anymore. If you were unsatisfied with your previous cleaner and hired a new company to come in, please don’t expect it to take the same amount of time with the new company. Each company runs differently and trains its employees differently.

6. Not decluttering countertops, and floors
When your house cleaner arrives, they want to get right to work. Having to pick up items off the floor when vacuuming and washing floors or moving every item on a cluttered countertop adds time to your cleaning. When customers ensure everything is clutter free and ready for their cleaners to arrive, they help save time and money for their services. Adding extra tasks without informing the company ahead of time puts a lot of stress on your cleaner. Most are booked for a set time in each customer’s home and feel pressured to agree to the extras, which leaves the rest of the day behind. Call ahead and request extra work if you need something cleaned that’s not done during your regular service.
