Now that you hired a cleaning service, what’s the next step in the cleaning process? Here are home perpetration tips to consider before a cleaning service enters your home.
According to an article at angieslist.com, “Preparing Home for Cleaning Service”
“1. Pick up household items that may be lying about
Tidying and straightening up your home’s rooms before a house cleaner arrives can help ensure they spend the majority of their time cleaning, not organizing your house. Picking up these items also means they’re less likely to be misplaced during a cleaning.
2. Pick up any important documents, bills and other papers
To an unfamiliar eye, important documents such as insurance paperwork, bank statements or bills can be easily mistaken for trash. Protect your privacy and avoid the trouble of tracking down an important paper item by filing them, placing them in a secure spot or leaving a “do not disturb” note on them prior to a house cleaner’s arrival.
Most house cleaning companies put their employees through thorough vetting and background check procedures, but that doesn’t mean a theft won’t occur. If you haven’t built up a high level of trust with your house cleaner, protect your peace of mind by placing valuables in a secure area such as a locked room, safe or inside your vehicle’s trunk.
4. Put away the pets
This precaution depends on both your dog and cat’s comfort level with strangers in the house, as well as your house cleaner’s preferences. If your pets don’t handle unfamiliar people well, it may be a good idea to secure them in a crate or locked room prior to the house cleaner’s arrival.” To read the entire article click here.” To read the entire article click here.
