When a Caregiver Needs Care …

A family’s primary caregiver — typically Mom — fulfills multiple roles and duties. She cooks, cleans, and chauffeurs the kids. She does the laundry and the shopping, and she pays the bills. She may hold a job and/or volunteer in the community.

So when Mom gets sick or injured, she needs help … lots of it.

Often Dad will take over, with help. Family members, friends and neighbors may pitch in to provide meals while Mom’s recovering. Perhaps someone will offer to take the kids where they need to go. Someone else may walk the dogs or throw a load of laundry in the washer when they come to visit.

But there aren’t a lot of cheerful volunteers offering to take care of the house cleaning. The hands-in-the-toilet, hands-and-knees floor scrubbing … the sanitizing kind of clean that is so necessary during recovery from an illness or injury.

A solution that works for many families is hiring a professional house cleaning company to handle those chores …

When you can’t handle your own house cleaning, turning it over to strangers is in many ways easier than having someone close to you do it.

By hiring professional house cleaners, Mom avoids any potential embarrassment of having friends or neighbors see the family’s “dirt.” She can relax in knowing that this is a just a job to the professional … and there’s no judgment on how dirty a house is except as to how it relates to the time it will take to complete the job.

By hiring professional house cleaners, Mom also knows that the cleaning is going to be done right. The professionals will use the proper cleaners, chemicals and equipment … they’ll even bring their own supplies! And they do this every day for a living, so they know what they’re doing.

By hiring professional house cleaners, Mom can relax and actually heal from her injury or illness. She will be less tempted to help do the chores herself.

To give Mom the most peace of mind, be sure to hire a house cleaning company that:

• is fully insured (both liability and workers’ comp),
• can provide references,
• gives an onsite personalized quote for the exact services you need, and
• has policies and procedures in place to guarantee your satisfaction.

Until next time … Keep it clean!

Trust Your House Cleaning Company to Clean While You’re Away?

How’s your house when you return from a vacation or other extended absence?

Dusty? Stuffy? The air a little stale?

Imagine how nice it would be if someone (or a group of someones) had been there recently to spruce things up …

To clean, vacuum and dust …

To make it ready for you to open the door and enjoy being home …

This is just one more of the many benefits of hiring a professional house cleaning company!

But how do they access your home while you’re away? Can you trust them with a key to your home? With the codes to your alarm system?

A professional house cleaning company will have systems in place to ensure the security of your house key and alarm codes. Here are some things to review should you decide to give these items to the company you hire:

    • Ask the company’s management team for details about their security measures.
    • Ask for references, especially from other clients who have also trusted the company with a house key.
    • Ask to see proof of the company’s insurance coverage.
    • Ask about employee hiring and training practices (including whether a criminal background check is done).

And if you’re not satisfied with the answers, perhaps you should reconsider your choice of companies.

10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a House Cleaning Company

You’ve decided to hire someone to clean your house … Great! Good for you!

But now what?

Now you have to find someone – a company – that you’re comfortable hiring!

Top 10 Questions

Here are some questions that you need to ask:

1. Will the company visit my home to evaluate the work I need to have completed?
2. Will I receive a written estimate?
3. Does the company have references and/or testimonials?
4. What is the company’s Better Business Bureau rating?
5. How long has the company been in business?
6. Is the company fully insured (general liability AND worker’s compensation coverage)?
7. Who is going to clean my home … company employees or sub-contractors?
8. Is the company knowledgeable about how to properly clean the specific items and finishes in my home?
9. Do I have a rapport with the company representatives?
10. Do I believe that the company will be able to meet my needs and exceed my expectations?

Next Steps

When gathering information about and from your potential new house cleaners, you’ll need to take notes. Review those notes after you’ve interviewed all the companies that you’re considering so that you can evaluate who is the best match for you.

Remember, it is highly critical that you feel comfortable with whomever you hire to work in your home!

This article assumes that you will be hiring a professional house cleaning company rather than an individual. An important thing to think about is this: While a company is going to cost more than an independent individual, the benefit of limiting your liability is probably worth paying for.

So take your time. Ask for and then check references. Make sure you understand any company policies and how they may relate to you.

And most importantly, if you have one of those “gut feelings,” pay attention to it!

Good luck, and enjoy your clean home!
