Maybe it’s your first time hiring a professional cleaning company, or maybe you’ve become a regular client of a certain cleaning service - no matter which of the two you are, it pays to give a little attention to some practices that can be inconvenient for the cleaning crew.

Yes, it is their job and you’re paying them; however, they, too, are human beings; they get tired, make mistakes, and, most importantly, feel. They are willing to give you the best service they can give; but, of course, they’d need your help to be able to achieve it.

So, here are a few things that they will never tell you but wish you knew.

# 1 Please be considerate when setting an allowable time period  to clean everything.

While most professional cleaning companies send out an entire crew, consisting of 3 to 4 people, to clean your house. Be considerate enough to give them sufficient time to do the cleaning. Yes, they are trained to do their work efficiently; however, even an entire crew cannot completely clean a 5-bedroom house in under 2 hours. Feel free to ask for an estimate if you’re unsure. They will be more than willing to assist you if you have any concerns.

# 2 Clutters make cleaning up a little difficult.

Professional house cleaning companies take pride in making sure that your house will be clutter-free and squeaky clean. But, cleaning up everything can be very challenging on the house cleaners’ part if the house is disorganized and full of clutter. Aside from the house being very messy, they are not familiar where they will have to place different objects in the house. Be kind enough to pick up stray toys and clothes on the floor. It will even help if you’ll tidy up clutter before the crew comes. In doing so, you’ll less likely be disappointed at the outcome.  

# 3 The definition of clean is different for everybody.

This is another thing to consider. It’s understandable that you will have your personal preference on how you want the cleaning to be like. In these cases, it will help a great deal if you will be thorough and specific enough about your preferences Feel free to be open about it. It allows the crew to clean your house according to your liking. After all, they prioritize your satisfaction more than anything else.
