How to Get the Most out of Your House Cleaning
Here at Tidy Touch, we know that having a clean house is important. We also know that every person is different and everyone has different expectations for what a clean house should look like. Because of this, we wanted to provide you with some tips about how to get the most out of your house cleaning.
House cleaning is meant to be an investment into your life so that you can have more margin, spend more time with your friends and family, and have a chance to refuel. That means that if your house cleaning isn’t up to par, it can start to feel like a waste of money.
Here are three tips to make sure that you get the best out of your cleaning company.
1. Read Online Reviews
One of the best ways to know if you’re hiring a trustworthy company is to learn more about the work they’re doing for the rest of their clients. Thankfully, doing so is easier than ever. A quick search on Google or social media will say a lot about how well a cleaning company is doing in terms of meeting and exceeding the expectations of their clients.
2. Communicate Priorities
When you communicate with your house cleaning company, it’s incredibly important to tell them about what is most important you. To communicate this, it is important to have a list of priorities to work off of. But should it be your job to create this list? The answer to that is a resounding no.
You shouldn’t have to create some list on your own time. Instead, your house cleaning company should provide you with a scope of work sheet which you can look through and use to identify top priorities.
By taking a little bit of time to send an email, you will be able to establish expectations with your cleaning company and empower them to succeed. Why is it so important to communicate priorities? Well, that’s because people have vastly different expectations and priorities.
A good cleaning company will understand a clear scope of work and deliver on those expectations, but a truly great cleaning company will tune themselves into your top priorities and exceed your expectations.
3. Pay Close Attention to a Deteriorating Quality Level
If the level of cleaning starts to deteriorate, that’s a surefire indicator that the cleaning company struggles to keep their employees engaged and motivated.
The sign of a truly great house cleaning company is one that does not allow the quality of their work to suffer over time.
This ability to stay consistent is usually tied to the company’s ability to hire, train, and develop great people. Finding amazing employees, treating them well, and establishing a business model that incentivizes high-quality results is what separates a truly spectacular company from the rest of the pack.
