So you’ve decided to hire a cleaning company. That’s great—but what happens next?

If this is your first time using a professional service, you may harbour some questions on what to expect. While the staff can provide most of the answers, there are always small anxieties before the first clean. To turn them into positive feelings, we recommend preparing your home a day or so before. Not only will this help you adjust to your new cleaning regime, but it is a much-appreciated courtesy.

Set Instructions and Outline Your Expectations

Many homeowners leave when the cleaning crew arrives to get out of their way. In such cases, the staff will require things like keys and alarm codes. Without them, the cleaners will face delays.

Inside the home, you may have special instructions for handling certain furniture and rooms. Always communicate these preferences so that there are no misunderstandings in cost, duration or thoroughness.

De-Clutter Your Living Space

Cleaners come to clean—not organize. While many will tidy up toys, dishes, electronics and other odds-and-ends, it wastes time. If only allotted a few hours, every minute spent de-cluttering equals less time invested in deep-cleaning. Likewise, clutter can become a tripping hazard that puts your cleaners at risk.

Provide the Cleaning Supplies (If Necessary)

Depending on the cleaning service, you may need to equip the staff with supplies. It might even be at your request that they use certain products or equipment. Whatever the reasoning, you cannot forget to provide the supplies; otherwise, no work can get done.

Contain Your Pets

If you own pets, keep them out of the way. Should you leave while the cleaners are at work, take your pets with you if possible. Making such arrangements is in both the animal and staff’s favour. Loud noises can frighten pets just as big animals can make cleaners uncomfortable.
