Most people want a house that is tidy and clean. But often the “busyness” of life gets in the way of this goal. That’s why hiring a maid service in Oklahoma is such an ideal choice. You can get it all done, while someone else does the vacuuming, dusting, and waxes the floors too!
But it is so important to choose the right maid service company. There are quite a few to select from – but that doesn’t mean you’ll get a high-quality cleaning job from all of them. That’s why it is recommended to ask your Oklahoma maid service a few questions, to help decide if you’ve selected a company that can meet your needs effectively, leaving your home sparkling clean.
A good maid cleaning service will give you an estimated cost for the cleaning, so you will have an expectation of how much you will pay. Remember that this rate is typically created by keeping in mind the size of the crew needed for your home or apartment, the depth of the cleaning needed and also the approximate time they think it will take to get the entire job done.
Our best tip: Be sure to ask them for a written estimate, before they get started so both of you have a good understanding of how much the cleaning job costs.
2. How are your employees paid & do you do background checks on them?
Even if you are referred to an Oklahoma cleaning company, we strongly recommend that you ask this question. No one wants to hire a company that pays their employees off the books (people who do not pay federal or state taxes on their income). You also want to be sure that any Home Cleaning company that you pick is doing some type of background check on their employees, as they will have access to your home and some of your most valuable possessions. The most common information looked at in a background check is a criminal check and also a credit check. Our best tip: Only work with a company that has employees who are “on the books” and who go through a background check.
3. Do you provide your own cleaning supplies?
You’ll want to be sure to ask this question, because if they do not bring cleaning supplies then you will need to have them ready. When hiring a Residential Cleaning Service you may also want to ask if they use “green” cleaning supplies, especially if someone in your home is sensitive to cleaning products or has asthma or allergies. If they don’t and you want to work with that cleaning service, then perhaps you can provide your own supplies. Many Home Cleaners today do supply some of their own cleaning supplies. If you have a great fondness for a certain floor wax or rug cleaner, then be sure to bring this up before they get started on the job. A lot of homeowners know that sometimes a specific product is the best one to use and a good Maid Cleaning Service will be happy to use the product that you give them, just let them know.
Going with the wrong cleaning service often is not a huge disaster but sometimes can be more of a huge inconvenience. If you hire a House Cleaning Company in Oklahoma that doesn’t get your house clean, then you are out the expense that you paid them and also the time it took you to find them. But sometimes cleaning companies are even less professional – Knick knacks can be broken, indoor pets can be let out accidentally and rugs can be stained when the wrong cleaners are used because someone didn’t listen.
