It is important that you and your cleaning service are on the same page about what will be included in your scheduled cleaning.  If you may have different needs during your routine service then be sure your cleaning service will be cooperative with your requests.  Be sure there is a guarantee.

Billing is not something you want to be surprised with.  Buyer’s remorse is a real thing.  It is important that you feel like you are getting the value for your money.  The type of structure you own may affect your cleaning service visits and billing.

Also keep the following in mind and plan accordingly:

  • Condos, apartments, duplexes and town homes may require special clearances for your cleaning service.
  • What about parking?  How far from your residence will the cleaning service need to park?
  • Some dwellings have ample parking, however they are part of large gated and/or guarded communities. This may also affect your cleaning service.
  • What if the cleaning crew arrives and there is no one available to meet them?  What is the cleaning services’ policy for these wasted trips and rescheduling?

5. Discuss payment for cleaning services ahead of time. 
Discuss payment methods and expectations prior to your first service.  Your cleaning service should already have billing practices in place.  Will your service be flexible with you on your cleaning schedule and payment schedule.  Always know what is expected!
