Getting your home cleaned by a professional is a perk that many people choose to splurge on. There are certain tips and tricks to make sure that you’re getting the best bang for your buck. These include anything from a simple gesture of offering your housekeeper a drink, doing a pre-clean of unnecessary clutter or specifying a certain way you’d like something done/cleaned. Remember to be realistic with your expectations and courteous enough to cancel with enough notice so time and money are not wasted by either parties.
- Be kind and a good host. Even though you are paying them to clean – welcome them into your home. Provide a drink and snacks.
- If you would like something specific cleaned a certain way , make sure to put in a special request with the cleaners.
