According to an article at arcsi.org, “Did You Hire a Cleaning Service for the Holiday’s?”
“Why hire a cleaning service?
People hire cleaning professionals for many different reasons. The number one reason is to save valuable time. You can save countless hours on dreaded housework (most of the time you save is the time you spend thinking about not wanting to do it). It is not difficult to find a good reliable professional service that can meet your cleaning needs. It seems that life just keeps moving at a faster pace. It is easy for valuable, personal, or family time to get shortened. Hiring a good home cleaning service can give you back some of that time. Cleaning services are rapidly becoming not a luxury anymore, but instead a needed service in most homes.
I want to hire a cleaning service to clean my home, what should I know first?
Most people that hire individuals or even cleaning services to clean their homes are not aware of what they should be asking before turning over the keys to their homes. Somehow along the way bonding became the industry standard question to ask. This is a false sense of security. When interviewing cleaning services customers should ask the following questions:
- Are you insured? This means adequate liability insurance, not a bond. Bonding is not a bad thing and in extremely rare cases does serve a purpose. Ask to see a copy of their insurance certificate.
- Do you carry worker’s compensation insurance? (Find out what your state requirements are) A good service will cover workers with WC even if they fall under the states minimum requirements.
- Will employees or independent contractors clean my home?
- What does your pre-employment screening consist of? Do you perform criminal background checks on all employees?” To read the entire article click here.
