Top Things to Look for When Hiring a Professional House Cleaning Service

 

When you make the decision to hire a house cleaning service it’s important to acknowledge that they aren’t all created equally.  Although it can be tempting to employ the first person or company that offers you a fair price, it could cost you far greater in the long run if you haven’t done your research.  Hiring a company that is licensed, bonded, and insured, and who properly screens their employees, could mean the difference between a job well done and a homeowner’s worst nightmare.  Protect yourself and your belongings by only hiring reputable companies that follow these clear guidelines.

Licensing

In the majority of states, an individual or company will need to apply for licensing in order to advertise and call themselves a professional house cleaning service.  Not only does this offer the client a sense of the owner’s level of professionalism, it also likely requires the business owner to become both bonded and insured, offering another tier of protection to the homeowner.

Bonding

Although you’ve likely seen this term on an advertisement for a house cleaning service before, you may not be familiar with what it means.  In short, a bond is a type of insurance specifically geared towards protecting the consumer. In other words, it is a simple way for you to guarantee that one way or another, the job will be well done.  There are two different types of bonds to consider.

 

  • Fidelity Bond:  Also called an “employee crime” or “employee dishonesty” bond, this type of bond protects your personal possessions from theft, loss, or damage.  It guarantees that, should any of these occur, you will be properly reimbursed for the full amount of the incident.
  • Surety Bond:  This type of bond is typically only required by much larger-scale companies.  It allows the parent company to sub out the job to another cleaner if, for any reason, they are unable to complete the job.

Liability Insurance

Liability insurance works in the interest of both the house cleaning service and the homeowner by representing both parties’ best interests.  Policies not only help to cover possible damages, but also safeguard against injuries or accidents that may happen on the property as a result of the service being rendered.  Many independent companies will work under the assumption that these types of incidents will be covered by your homeowner’s insurance, but this is not always the case (nor should it have to be).  A slip and fall at your expense could end up becoming a costly (and fully avoidable) mess.

Employee Screening

When you are searching for the right house cleaning service, you have a vested interest in how they select their employees.  Remember that these people will have full access to your home and belongings, so you have a right to know that they have been properly reviewed by their employer.  Finding a company that takes the time and effort to background check and drug test their employees will give you the peace of mind to feel comfortable in your choice.
