There is an endless list of removal services offered by an endless list of cleaning companies. This makes it very difficult for some people to pick the right company to cater to their needs. Well lucky enough, this article aims to provide you with a few hints and tips which should help you pick the perfect cleaning company for you.
The first thing you need to do is decide on the service that you require. Are you looking for a cleaner to clean your whole home? Are you after a particular service e.g. carpet cleaning? The key is to find a company that specialises in offering the services that you are looking for.
Once you have come across the companies that offer the service that you require, you need to start researching some more into technical issues such as insurance, certifications etc. If you are not quite sure what these are, worry not.
You, as a potential customer are entitled to ask the cleaning company for a copy of their insurance papers, thus allowing you to see what they are insured for, and the sum that they are insured for. God forbid something does go wrong whilst they are cleaning your home, you want to make sure that it can be replaced or compensated for.
You also need to double-check if there are any guarantees that are offered by the cleaning company since these can be a sign of expertise!
Visiting company websites is a great way of getting a hold of reviews and testimonials that previous clients have written, allowing you to assess the success rate of this company. Since these reviews are written by real customers, you know that you will be getting nothing but the truth, which is always helpful.
You are entitled to ask cleaning companies about the staff that is employed, as long as the questions are not too personal. It may be wise to ask about the training and qualifications that their staff has so that you can be sure that only professionals deal with your cleaning needs. You are also allowed to ask about their criminal background in terms of convictions, CRB checks etc. especially if you are looking for staff to come into your home. Whilst it may seem cheeky or inappropriate to ask such questions, you need to make sure that you are fully satisfied before you allow people to come into your home in order to clean. You need to be sure that you can trust the professionals coming into your home.
Finally, you need to narrow your search to about 4 cleaning companies. These should be companies that offer the service you require, are able to accommodate to your needs based on YOUR convenience i.e. times, days, dates convenient to you etc. and should be fully insured and offer a great guarantee.
Once you have narrowed it down, it is time to ask for quotes. Money is often a deal-breaker, but also a factor that can seal deals, so always ask for a quote before you settle. You may find significant differences in prices. Needless to say, the company offering all of the above AND providing you with the lowest quote is the company for you!
Picking the right company cannot be done in the blink of an eye. Sure, some research is required, but it will all be worth it in the end when you find yourself that perfect cleaning company.
