3 Ways to Tell If That Cleaning Service is a Good Bet or Not

It’s not always easy to give your home a deep clean. But if you think you can’t live with the grime and dirt anymore, here’s what you can do to save your sanity:

Hire a cleaning service

Good Housekeeping says it’s a good idea to leave washing windows to the experts. A window cleaning crew will clean your windows inside and out. If the outside of your windows had not been cleaned for years, then this service is already long overdue. First, you’ll need to…

Scout around

To know what your options are, you’ll need to explore the market for options. Go online and research on cleaning companies in your area. You could also reach out to family and friends. If they’ve already used cleaning services before, then mine them for tips and referrals. All these should give you a pretty good idea which ones to put on your list.

Check credentials

Once you have a list of options, time to narrow down them by checking the company backgrounds for each one. Does the cleaning service come highly recommended? Do you think the company is trustworthy? How long have they been in business? Do they hire trained cleaners? Do they own the equipment and tools they will use for the job? These questions will help you determine if they’re a good bet or not.

Note staff behavior

If you put in a call to the company and the staff is rude, uncooperative, discourteous and rushing to get you off the phone, then it’s safe to say you’ll be much better off elsewhere. However, if the customer service is excellent, that’s one good reason to give the company a try.

A last word of advice: You’re letting these people into your home. It’s important that you hire a window cleaning you can trust, one with a good reputation for honesty and quality results.
