When a Cleaning Company is hesitant to share their local references, then it’ might be a lame end of tenancy cleaning service provider. Let’s discuss it more now
When I buy things online, I always write down important notes, which will apply, to all the companies I am browsing through, be it buying a t-shirt or holidays, a car or a bike and even food or vouchers and so forth. Well, that’s probably me, but I used to be someone leaving all for last minute and then ended up buying wrong things, including clothes, shoes, food and the huge massive big fat list goes on.
When I first moved in to a rental property, that was over 14 years ago, and I was still in my teens, moving out from my parents home and going away in a different city to start to pursue higher studies and find work and just be on my own and face things on my cheeks, learn, feel and carry on
Well as I said that was 14 years ago and I was sharing a room in a 4 bedroom student accommodation, a bed and breakfast kind of thing, very loud tenants indeed, mostly ladies, well men too on Saturdays and Sunday nights, I used to be kind of a shy and serious guy back then (there are times when I may be quiet or be very shy even now), well Shhhhh!
Well after completing my high school when I moved out from this property, the owners expected the flat to be professionally cleaned including the mattress, sofa, curtains, a rug and the communal area and I remember I called a local cleaning company which I found through some search engine (I literally don’t remember but probably it was a nightmare because of checking the reviews good or bad habit).
I paid I think, over a 100-$ I think back then for the entire end of tenancy clean of my room and carpets and upholstery and communal areas in the house and I left on a good note, I was moving within cities and states and then flying abroad and each and every time I moved out I had to perform end of tenancy clean.
When I moved to London a long time ago, I had to professionally clean the room I was living in and that was in Surrey, no matter how clean my room used to be (as a single man), I still had to get professional cleaners to clean the entire thing (carpets, upholstery, all areas used by me), and I remember paying quite a handsome amount to get the property fully cleaned.
Now back to the topic, when I still use end of tenancy cleaning services when I move out from a property, I still request 3 references within a mile radius area from my property. Even when I work with a cleaning company, I still do my mathematics in order to help me save my money on after tenancy clean and why not, I work hard for this
However, the main and important questions to ask your end of tenancy cleaning company have already been discussed on this blog, but a cleaning company is hesitant to pass on references in your local area you can speak with are either dodgy or do not have good reviews or references.
Please note, do not just go for online reviews, it’s always worth speaking to a local and get an honest opinion, I always ask for 3 references, 1 can be their friend, family or relative but all might not and just in case if they are, I might still be able to spot the lame end of tenancy cleaning review by kind of knowing the body language or voice clarity or just randomly asking a quick question which might help the reviewer tell the truth secretly
My personal suggestion, if your cleaning company is hesitant to pass on references in your local area is probably not a good cleaning company and you should avoid them. Please note, it makes sense when someone tells that they cannot pass on their references name and number because of data-protection law, but then again, there should be some at least some customers in a 5 miles radius area around my property which have given their consent? Just do not go because they know about data-protection law, do your mathematics in order to save your money, time, and hassle and the stress.
