Residential Cleaning Services

What should you expect from a professional house cleaning? It's important to understand that every cleaning service will perform your house cleaning a little differently. Some are better able to customize their approach to your needs. Ask for a specific cleaning checklist of exactly what your house cleaning will include. Also be sure to ask whether all of the tasks will be performed with each cleaning service, or if some tasks will be rotated from cleaning to cleaning.

If you are extremely particular about how your house cleaning is done, then it is possible that the maid service you hire may do things a little differently than you would do yourself. Keep in mind, though, that even if the cleaning is not done exactly as you would, the fact is, your entire house has been cleaned and you didn't have to lift a finger!

House cleaning services are very personal. Building a relationship with the house cleaning service you choose will be an important part of your satisfaction.

Communicate with them openly and honestly about exactly what you expect from a thorough home cleaning. Call them with feedback on your level of satisfaction with the service you are receiving. Trust the advice that your maid service gives you on how to best maintain your home, and always show your appreciation to your service provider, whether you leave gratuity or just a nice note, your thanks will encourage their good performance.
