5 Mistakes to Avoid When Choosing a Cleaning Service

Choosing a Cleaning Service Based on Lowest Price.

Low price could be a problem.  Low price can be the bait that attracts your phone call, but once the cleaner gets into your home, they pressure you into a higher price job, also known as "Bait & Switch".

Extremely low prices tend to be offered by individual cleaners who may have no insurance, are not bonded, have not been screen for background checks or pre-screened drug test and typically do not have funds to replace an item they may have damaged in your home.

Low price may also mean that the equipment, chemicals and supplies being used in your home are far cheaper and less effective, especially the vacuuming.

Choosing a Cleaning Service based on a Single Phone Call.

Instead, invite the person to your home and ask for a specific written quotation.  This way you will know exactly what you are paying for and you won't be the victim of high-pressure tactics when the cleaning team steps into your living room.

Choosing a Cleaning Service without Obtaining Comments or Testimonials from other Clients.

A cleaning service can say anything about their past jobs.  Make sure you read comments from current and past clients. The best place to find recommendations is Facebook, Angie's List, The BBB and local searches such as Yahoo Local and Google Local.
