5 Very Important Questions You Need To Ask Before Booking A Cleaning Service

UAE life is very fast and glamorous. It is very hard to spare time for everything, especially for cleaning on daily or weekly basis. To be honest, we all are looking for a helping hand. There are lots of cleaning services all over the UAE. You wouldn’t give up once you start getting help making your home clean and shiny. But as a start, before choosing one of these services you have to keep few things in your mind.

1) Do your homework

Finding the right individual or cleaning service can be a difficult task. It’s even more difficult when you don’t know where to begin. Plus, you may have doubts about having someone you don’t know in your home. One of the best ways to hire a cleaning service is through the referrals of friends, family, neighbors or by checking the reviews of highly-rated companies. After narrowing down your options, call or send an e-mail to the cleaning service providers to schedule an in-home estimate at your convenience. This will give you the opportunity to assess their responsiveness.

2) Set your budget, rate

Most cleaning services charge an hourly rate for the initial visit, but may also charge by the project, or by the number of employees they send. Ask the cleaning service to give you an estimated time on how long it will take to clean your home. Cleaning services should give you a flat rate for each subsequent visit depending on the condition of your property, needs, and how often you will need the service. You should also be able to avoid unwanted costs by putting a cap on the number of hours the cleaners will be in your home. Find out if the cleaning service has a “not to exceed this price” clause.

3) Certified, insured or bonded

Professional cleaning services will carry liability insurance and a bond. They have a policy in place in case something gets broken, damaged or goes missing in your home. This will provide you with security and peace of mind during the cleaning service. You may want to inform the cleaning service if you have any items that require special care.

4) Who will offer the supplies and equipment?

Choose a cleaning company that offers equipment and supplies on their own. This will help you minimize your costs pertaining to acquire supplies and also ensure that you enjoy hassle-free cleaning service.

5) Get all the guarantees written

Companies should be happy to hear your suggestions and feedback. They should also be able to provide you with a satisfaction guarantee in the event that you are unhappy with a particular service. You should be able to openly communicate with them by e-mail or phone to ensure your cleaning needs are being met. Remember; you’re letting someone into your home. Getting as many of the details in writing can help you avoid disagreements down the line.

    I loved when you mentioned how you should check with your friends and family when looking for a good cleaning company to help you. It makes sense to think that doing this can help you get quality referrals when looking for a company to help you clean. A friend of mine was talking about how he needed to find a cleaning company that can clean his office, so I’m glad I found your article.

    I do like that one of your questions is all about the cleaning supplies and equipment. After all, depending on what company you choose, you may have to provide them with the supplies in order to get a cheaper price. However, if they do use their own supplies then you need to make sure they’re not using anything that could harm your pets.
