How do I choose a cleaning company?

Choose the right cleaner for you!

Policies and Procedures Document

When choosing a cleaning company for the first time, or hiring a new company, it is important to first read through the company’s
Policies & Procedures. This document will generally give you an idea of what you can expect when you hire a professional cleaning company.


Some cleaning companies will charge a flat rate, while some charge per square foot, while others will charge by the hour based on the number of cleaners
required to clean your home/business efficiently. Find out how you will be billed to avoid surprises

Many cleaning companies will have reduced rates for families or businesses that require frequent cleaning but may also have a "First clean"
rate that is generally higher due to the amount of work and time generally required to clean a home professionally for the first time.

Each cleaning company will differ on the services they will or will not perform and some may have different prices that they associate with different services. It is important that you
and your preferred cleaning company talk about and get in writing exactly what services will be performed and at what rate. It is not uncommon for
heavy cleaning like stoves, fridges etc. to be performed on a monthly or quarterly basis. Often, these services will be billed at a higher rate than your regular services


Always check a company’s references by phone or email. Do not rely solely on testimonials online.
Any reputable company should be able to provide you with at least two references that you can call

Hopefully, some of this information will help you choose your cleaning company wisely. If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I will do my best to answer it
