What a treat! Am I right?
Here are three ways you can get that to happen:
#1 – A Disability or Worker’s Comp Claim
If you are truly physically unable to perform basic housecleaning tasks, you may be able to get your insurance claim to include professional house cleaning.
Ask for it!
The worst that can happen is that your request is denied. But you just may get lucky and get a “yes.”
#2 – A Homeowner’s Insurance Claim
If disaster strikes, and you’ve filed a homeowner’s insurance claim to repair the damage to your home, you may have coverage that includes a post-repair final cleanup, too.
Coverages vary greatly from policy to policy, so this is something you have to ask about in regards to your own homeowner’s coverage. But, again, it’s worth asking the question.
#3 – A Gift Certificate
People give gift certificates for numerous occasions:
• Mother’s Day
• New Baby
• Get Well
The list can go on …
Your friends and family may be stumped as to what to get you. Or maybe what they think you’ll like and what you really want are very different things.
Give them a break.
Ask for what you want!
Very often, they will be relieved and happy that you did.
The common thread in getting someone else to pay for your house cleaning is to ask.
If you never ask, the answer always will be “no.” But if you do ask, sometimes you’ll get a “yes.”
Mini Mops, Inc. is a professional house cleaning company serving residential and commercial clients in the Fresno-Clovis CA area since 1975. Gift certificates are available, and they are currently accepting new clients. Please visit their website for more information:
What happens when something happens to your home?
Something major. Something bigger than you can handle on your own.
Typically, you’ll have to deal with your insurance company. That’s why we have homeowner’s insurance. Right? You’ll probably also work with a general contractor (and maybe some of his sub-contractors) as well as a restoration company if your disaster was a fire or flood.
You have to clean up the mess … literally.
Let’s look at what happened at Mary’s house recently.
A malfunctioning toilet flooded Mary’s upstairs guest bathroom one weekend. It was a guest bathroom, so Mary didn’t notice the toilet running, then overflowing … then water flooding the room.
The water seeped down into the floor – the ceiling of three rooms downstairs. It flowed down into the adjacent walls.
Mary had significant damage to her home by the time she noticed the problem and was able to turn the water off at the toilet.
She had a restoration company in her home for several days to dry things out. She hired a general contractor to repair the structural damage. The general contractor’s bid, which was submitted to and approved by Mary’s insurance company, included sub-contracted work performed by a plumber, electrician, floor installation expert, and a professional house cleaning service.
Yes, Mary’s homeowner’s policy included professional house cleaning to clean up after the repairs were done.
The last thing you need after cleaning up the mess of a home disaster is to clean up the mess from the repairs. When you can get it ALL done professionally – the final house cleaning, too – you can rest assured that it’s been done right.
NOW is the time to check into your specific policy coverages … BEFORE disaster strikes. Some proactive people even make lists of companies they would prefer to work with – based on referrals and recommendations by friends and family – so they have resources available when they need them.
Mini Mops House Cleaning has helped many general contractors with the final cleanup of jobs, including home repair projects paid for by an insurance claim. Sometimes the work is done as a sub-contractor under the overall bill of the general contractor. Other times, the homeowner’s insurance company pays for the house cleaning directly.
Every policy is different, and you MUST ask your own agent about your specific policy and what it does or does not cover.
While we can help you if disaster strikes, here’s hoping that we never need to!
