Cleaning up before the cleaner comes. it may sound silly, but there’s sense behind the saying. While the real cleaning should be left to the person you’ve hired to clean, there are still a few things you can do beforehand to ensure that you get the kind of service you expect from a professional cleaning company.
Although there aren’t any hard and fast rules about preparing your home for a cleaner, we’ve got a few tips to make the whole cleaning experience easier for both parties.
Pick up clutter
It’s always a good idea to do a quick walk-through of your home to pick up any scattered items that may get in the way. Putting away any loose clothing, kids’ toys, stray dishes, piles of papers and anything you would not want damaged will allow your cleaner to get down to the business of cleaning quickly and more efficiently.
Clear off surfaces
For any counters, vanities or work areas, be sure to store excess products or fragile items away in drawers to allow your cleaner to effectively clean all surfaces. This includes beauty and skincare products, perfume bottles, makeup containers, appliances and also valuable ornaments.
Make a plan
Be sure to discuss the details of your cleaning plan in advance so that your cleaner can come prepared and there are no misunderstandings about costs or the length of the visit. If you have any special cleaning requests, or any areas you want the cleaner to pay particular attention to or avoid entirely, make sure to communicate these too.
Bonus Tip: Don’t forget about your pets
Find a good spot for your pets out of the way so that they’re kept safe and secure while your cleaner does their thing.
Taking heed of these simple tips will ensure that every moment your cleaner is in your home is productively spent getting your home spic and span, maximising the value-for-money that you’re getting!
