What is important to you in a cleaning service? Most important factors that come to mind are probably reliability, economy, safety and effectiveness. Selecting the most appropriate cleaning service can make all the difference in developing a long term, low maintenance relationship.

You would like to know that the cleaners are going to show up once they say they will. The very last thing you need is to arrive home from work with a dinner party scheduled to begin in an hour and find out that the cleaning company had the date wrong. Look for a cleaning company that offers ease of scheduling. You should have a schedule confirmed by the two parties. On the other hand, you want them to get their job done as subtly as possible. With a regular cleaning service, you may a tendency to forget about what they are doing unless you happen to be home at the same time.

Economy is important as well. A good cleaning company can offer low rates when you are offering them long term, reliable work. Compare around and get quotes, but keep in mind that you get what you pay for.

A family with children is especially concerned about safety. Does the cleaning service you are looking at use the appropriate strength of products? Are they going to be using industrial cleaners on your kitchen cabinets where you prepare food? Many companies today offer environmentally friendly products with lower exposure to potentially harmful chemicals.

Of course, the factor that will ultimately make or break your relationship with your cleaning company is effectiveness. There is no point in an economical company showing up when it says it will with safe cleaners if they are going to just take a couple of swipes at the bathroom and leave. Do not be afraid to come along behind and spot check. Are they sweeping behind the furniture?

Cleaning services may offer different services, and you as a client doubtless have your unique needs. Perhaps you are looking for a cleaning company to come in on a regular basis and just straighten things up. A couple times a week, you will come home and find that the childrens toys are put away and the house has been de-cluttered.

On the other hand, you may be looking for deep cleaning. It is not so hard for you to keep up with daily cleaning duties, but you need someone to come in once a month and keep carpet stains from building up, dust the ceiling fans, and change the air conditioning filter.

Another handy service is oven cleaning. Many housekeepers put this task off as long as possible would it not be great to open your oven on Sunday morning and find it sparkling clean? No dealing with oven cleaner fumes, no craning around to scrub the top, and no more burnt smell from the pot pie that ran over last week.

Windows are another item that is hard to deal with. I remember climbing out on the porch roof while my mom held my wrist and cleaning the outside of my bedroom window. A cleaning service not only knows how to take those new windows apart and clean them they know how to put them back together.

Do not hesitate to contact a professional cleaning service and find out how they can develop a cleaning program to meet your exact needs.
