Regular Cleaning Service
What you should know about your regular or contract cleaning, in your residential or commercial property.
Hiring a cleaner for your domestic cleaning needs can be quite daunting. After all, you are letting this person enter your home, possibly clean while you are not there and have access to your most intimate possessions.
You need to know that you can trust them to do the job they are paid for – and to the best frothier ability. So what traits must you look out for when meeting them for the first time?
1. Positivity: we all feel better around positive people. Those who take life’s challenges and rise to them, instead of having a moan. It is likely that you will see your cleaner a fair bit, whether it be while they are cleaning your home or afterwards when you pay them. A sunny disposition and happy approach to life will make such encounters much more pleasant and tolerable for both parties
2. Honesty: this is an obvious one. A cleaner has to be honest and trustworthy in order to be left in another person’s home or commercial premises without the fear that they will steal, slack off or not own up to breakages. Any reputable cleaning agency will have vetted their staff, to make sure they are trustworthy, dedicated and eligible to work in the UK.
3. Good communications: whether it is conveying instructions over how to clean a certain item, rearranging a cleaning appointment or reporting that the cleaning fluid has run out, a cleaner must be able to communicate well with his or her employer to get the job done. This can be done face to face or in writing, but it must be done well – with both sides understanding what the other is saying to them.
4. Impressive cleaning knowledge: a cleaner should be a professional at his or her job. They must know how to clean different materials, such as upholstery, fabric, metal, wood, plastics and stone. They must understand and adhere to any instructions on cleaning products, especially those that could potentially be harmful if ingested or used in the wrong way. Cleaners can often be asked for advice – and the best ones will have plenty of tips to share.
5. Personable character: as with the first point, a cleaner spends a fair amount of time in the house of his or her clients, talking to them. As a rule, we prefer talking to people who are pleasant, engaging and interested in us. And we are much more likely to reemploy and give great references to someone we like personally.
6. Driven by success: cleaning is no different to any other job or profession when it comes to striving for excellence. The best cleaners will feel pride in their work, and will work hard to achieve the best possible results. No matter how hard the task is, or filthy the area to be cleaned.
