Tips for Choosing a Home Cleaning Service

Common Concerns When Hiring a Cleaning Company

Common Concerns When Hiring a Cleaning Company
By Janet M Slagell

If the weather outside is frightful, then chances are your family members have tracked their share of dirt or snow throughout your home... despite your best efforts to convince everyone to leave the dirty, wet stuff at the door. Just ask anyone who has ever had to clean up after the kids have been out playing in the snow or are returning from a day at the beach-- there's nothing more frustrating than going behind someone and cleaning up all the mess. Of course, if you are already slammed with a long list of home maintenance chores that run the gambit form mopping to cleaning the bathrooms, then one more job is not exactly the highpoint of your day.

Fortunately, you don't have to be the one to clean up all the messes...or even continually do all the housework. Whether you live in Virginia Beach or Hampton Roads, New York or Atlanta, you can choose to save yourself some time by hiring a maid service. After all, your time is valuable and there are plenty of other activities and pursuits to keep you occupied without spending your time off with the vacuum cleaner, scrub brush and rubber gloves. Each day, hundreds of homeowners all across America have cleaning crews come in to take care of the day to messes created simply by living and having fun. However, if you have ever considered hiring a maid service, then chances are you have a number of questions, before you are willing to turn over the keys to your home so someone else can do the cleaning. Here are a few common concerns in hiring a professional maid service:

  1. How do I know the company can be trusted? Call the BBB or check out any potential home cleaning service provider to see what others have said about the company. You can also call prospective companies and find out if their professional cleaners have had background checks, and whether or not the workers are licensed and bonded.
  2. What else is important to look for? It is recommended that you only use companies that have identifiable vehicles (i.e. have a company logo on the vehicle door), have uniforms for their employees and provide insurance that protects both you and the worker. The insurance is a "must have" as it alleviates you of responsibility for any items broken or any injuries incurred while they are cleaning your home.
  3. Who provides the cleaning supplies? This often varies based on the company. In some cases you may pay a bit extra for them to use their own cleaning products but this often because they are using specially designed eco-friendly products; however, if you want them to use a specific type of product, then let the company know when you schedule the cleaning service.
  4. How often will the cleaners come? This is up to you. You can choose from weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, just for special events or when moving to a new home

    Winn’s Pro- I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

    I manage 16 luxury homes in Aspen, Colorado and would not go anywhere else for my carpet cleaning needs. On top of requiring very discreet and trustworthy services, our homeowners have specialty rugs and carpets which require unique care. Over the long relationship Ute Place has shared with Marty, there is not a problem Winn’s pro has not been able to handle for us. When he says, “call me any time”, he means it! Marty is always willing to help in emergency situations late in the day or over weekends and holidays and arrives on your doorstep quickly and with a smile. My homeowners are continually impressed with the “magic” Marty works on their carpets and rugs, always leaving them looking like new. I would, without hesitation, recommend Marty’s professional services to any client looking for a superior, friendly and flawless cleaning service.

    Thank you Winn’s Pro!

    Testimonial from Mason Morse Real Estate:This is to let you know that Marty Winn did an excellent job of cleaning our carpets. His service is unbeatable and the quality of his work is definitely first class.We had stains on our carpet that no other carpet cleaner was able to get out. The stains were set in and had been there for quite some time. Marty came to our office and said he did not care if we gave him the job or not; but he wanted to try and get the stains out. He not only got them out, his prices were excellent also.Marty came and cleaned our carpets and has followed up to make sure the stains have not returned.I highly recommend and trust Marty and Winn’s Pro Carpet Cleaning. He definitely is a professional and takes pride in his work.Thank you for all that you have done!Sincerely,Karen Scarberry/Office ManagerMason Morse Real Estate0290 Hwy 133Carbondale, CO. 81623

    Would I recommend Winn’s Pro Carpet Cleaning? You bet I would. Winn’s Pro Carpet Cleaning cleaned the carpets in the Chamber office, and when I came in the next day I thought I was in the wrong place! The difference was amazing. Great work and fast service, way to go Winn’s Pro Carpet Cleaning!
