Tips For Hiring A Cleaning Company
Good information with some great tips on hiring a cleaning service. At your Orlando Cleaning Pros, we provide Professional Cleaning Servicesin Orlando you can count on.
As some of you probably know, and even though I’ve written a book about cleaning and I make videos about cleaning –I have got a lot of information about how to hire a cleaning service and every now, and then you might want to bring somebody in just to Supplement the work that you’re, doing obviously depending on your budget or you might be looking to hire someone on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis.
in response to a lot of your questions, I figured that I would put together tips for you on how to hire the right cleaning service.
So let me share those tips with you now and just a quick reminder if you haven’t done so already to subscribe to clean my space channel, give this video a thumbs up. If you want to visit the City of Toronto at some point in your life, when you’re looking to bring somebody into your home, what I recommend is always starting by asking for referrals from friends and family.
In fact, often times I’ll, just put something up on Facebook. When I’m looking for a referral now, the reason this is so important is because a company can really write anything it wants on its website.
So they might sound. Amazing, but are they actually amazing that’s? What your friends and family are gonna, tell you so go to them. Is your first point of reference take review websites with a grain of salt.
You know happy people tend to not go on these websites and put up reviews. They really they might be happy, but they don’t. T really feel compelled to do it, but upset people. Oh, my god do they have a voice and they need to be heard and oftentimes people who are really angry.
They want to just go online and bench they want to be heard. Sometimes they legitimately want to ruin the company’s. Reputation so just be mindful, when you’re, looking at a company’s review if they have a pretty decent score, but a few bad apples that’s pretty normal.
If the company has all bad reviews that’s, a red flag, the thing to look out for and guys this one might surprise, you is a company that has all perfect reviews. That is just not realistic and in fact there’s.
A company or two that I know of who are competitors of ours who actually give their clients money to put up reviews. So you can imagine there’s, a bit of an incentive there for the client to say something nice or they’ll, go around and get reviews and other shady sketchy ways, and those are the companies that have all-perfect tens.
So what I like to do – and this is chattin Eyes – policy on reading reviews – whether it’s for restaurants or Amazon or service providers, we kind of ignore all the perfect reviews. We kind of ignore all the bad reviews and we look at the middle section.
One of the reasons why service companies tend to be more expensive than people who just post up an ad on the side of a mailbox or on Craigslist, is because actual service companies should provide bonding insurance and workers compensation.
And when you’re interviewing. A company on the phone or reading their FAQ page, they should definitely mention that they offer that and if they, don & # 39, t run in the other direction. Now, what that offers bonding means that, if something gets stolen from your home, there’s, an insurance policy that will give you back whatever was taken or the financial compensation for it.
Insurance means that if anything gets broken or damaged in your home, that the company has a policy that can cover that and finally workers compensation means that if someone gets injured at your home workers, compensation will take over and pay for whatever their recovery expenses are now.
If you just hire somebody off of a website where they don & # 39, t have that kind of protection, or you just bring someone into your home and pay them cash. None of those assurances are offered to you and, in the event that something goes wrong.
You’re on the hook. I always like to know how long a company has been in business for and also if they have any professional affiliations or if they & # 39, ve been accredited. So, for example, we’ve, been in business since 2006.
We’re accredited by the Better Business Bureau and the way that the Better Business Bureau works. Is they look at how long you’ve, been in business and how many complaints have been registered under your business and then they assign you a rating? So anyone can go on to that.
Our Business Bureau website they can check out my company or anyone’s company. Frankly, as long as they’re part of the Better Business Bureau and get that accreditation rating and that’s really important, because credibility is huge, especially when you’re, letting someone into your home with all your stuff.
The other reason why it’s important to know how long a company has been in business for is because it allows them to have time to establish themselves and work out kinks, and sometimes there are terrible companies, and this actually happened.
I know a couple companies in Toronto like this terrible reputation. All they do is close down and open up under a new name, but it’s. The same owners, the same management and the same business structure with the same terrible service.
So really understanding how long that company’s been established for and if they have any accreditations or professional affiliations can really benefit you as a consumer. I also think it’s important to find out if the cleaning service company provides their own cleaning products and tools or if they want you to provide your own cleaning products and tools.
Now, while it might seem more convenient for the company to provide the cleaning products and tools, as far as I’m concerned, I want to have control and if you guys know anything about me and have learned anything from the clean myspace channel, you Know that having the right products and tools is half the battle, and you know your space now.
The other thing to keep in mind is that let’s say a company supplies their own stuff. Well, how do you know that a mop that was used in house a wasn’t cleaned before it was used in house B? Think about a toilet, bowl brush think about a sponge.
I don’t know for me. That gives me the heebie-jeebies, so at my company we require our clients to provide their own cleaning, supplies and tools. We sell starter kits and we also give them a shopping list so that everybody knows what they need and we’ll also talk them through their space, their particular requirements, and we find out okay.
What are your finishes, and what do you need? So we can make sure you’re properly outfitted, and that way our clients know that their stuff is only being used in their house. Is the company that you’re contacting an actual service provider or are they kind of one of those sharing economy websites? So a service provider tends to have a consistent roster of employees that they’ll, send out on a regular basis and one of those sharing economy websites.
Well pretty much. Anyone can put their information up on there and get themselves a job. So when we interview part of our process is doing background, checks, police check and, of course, reference checks.
So we know who we’re bringing in. But when you’re, just hiring someone off of let’s, say an economy or a sharing economy, an economy website, a sharing economy website or if you’re, just hiring somebody off of Craigslist or something like that.
You don’t know who they are and remember. They’re coming into your home, where all of your valuables important things are, and if something goes missing. What’s, your recourse? You want to know who’s coming in how trustworthy and reliable they are and what you can do in the event that there’s, a problem.
I have so much more to say on this topic, but I didn’t want to put it all in the video, because I don’t want to talk your ear off, but I & # 39. Ve got a link to a blog post. I’ll, put that for you down below up on cleanmyspace.
