What Do You Need to Provide a Cleaner With?

When it comes to hiring a cleaner, there are certain essential items you need to provide in order to ensure the job is done properly. From vacuums and mops to dusters and paper towels, having the right equipment is key to achieving a spotless home. First and foremost, you'll need a vacuum cleaner with accessories for both hardwood and carpets. This is essential for sucking up any dirt that remains on the fibers.

Depending on how clean you want your home, you may need to buy additional cleaning supplies. We recommend discussing this with your cleaner before they start work so that you can agree on what can be achieved in 1, 2 and 3 hours of work. It's also important to have a bucket or container for transporting supplies, as well as a mop and bucket, duster (long and short), dustpan and broom, paper towels, microfiber cloths (available separately and color-coded for the kitchen and bathroom), glass cleaning cloths and a bleach tile cleaner. This last item is great for removing unsightly dirt, but be sure to put on the ventilation grille or open a window when using it to protect yourself from fumes. When looking for a house cleaner, it's best to meet with several different people so that you can get an idea of what's available. If a large amount of general cleaning has to be done, this will consume the cleaner's time and the cleaning time itself will be reduced.

To maintain its classic look, use only specific hardwood cleaners and soft scourers or mops with microfiber cloths. Be sure to ask the company if their cleaners are insured before your scheduled cleaning date. You may also want to consider buying a small portable vacuum for tight spaces that offers the same capabilities with just a little more work. Agencies may charge higher rates than private cleaning agencies, but they can also offer year-round service. Once you decide to hire a cleaner, you must agree on a notice period if either of you wants to end the relationship. In three hours, the cleaner should be able to complete all of the above tasks as well as take care of some extras such as tidying up an area of the house, polishing ornaments or photo frames, loading and unloading the washing machine, changing bedding and thoroughly cleaning a particular area or item (such as an oven).It's important to remember that self-employed cleaning staff may take vacations and sick days when they don't receive a service.

House cleaners are professionals who will leave no stone unturned in an effort to make your home spotless. Finding the right one can be a blessing.
