Secure Valuables Such As Loose Cash, Small Electronics And Jewelry:

Most reliable and professional residential cleaning companies recruit their cleaners after strict background check and screening procedures in order to ensure the safety and security of customers, but this doesn’t mean that a theft would not occur. Protect your peace of mind by placing these valuable possessions in a safe and secure place so that the chances of theft or misplacing can be reduced.

Pick Up Important Papers, Bills And Other Documents:

To an unfamiliar eye, important documents such as utility bills, bank statements or insurance paperwork can be easily mistaken for trash. In order to avoid the trouble of tracking down the important documents and to protect your privacy, it is suggested to place them in a safe and secure spot. You can also leave a note stating “important documents” or “do not disturb” before your cleaners arrive.

Pickup Household Items That May Be Lying About:

It would be completely crazy for you to clean your house before your cleaner’s service arrives, but if your kitchen counters are stacked with dirty dishes or if your house is disorganized, your cleaner will be spending more time in picking up rather than cleaning. Picking up these items also means they are less likely to be misplaced during a cleaning.

Make Sure They Can Get In:

If you have an important meeting or you can’t be able to stick around during the cleaning, make sure that the cleaners is able to access your home. If you hired them for a recurring cleans, it’s better to have an extra key for the team to use in case if you are not at home. Also, don’t forget to let them know if there is an alarm code, gate code or other special instructions such as activate the security alarm before leaving, turn off the lights or thermostat.

Make Your Expectations Clear:

Every cleaning company is different regarding its terms, service conditions and pricing. It may be possible that the services you have requested may not be completed in a way that you want. Don’t be afraid to clear your expectations. If you have any special instructions call the company and let them know so they will direct their team accordingly. House cleaners can’t read minds so it’s better to communicate with them.

Put Away The Pets:

No matter whether your pet is friendly or aggressive it is better to isolate them or lock them in a room before the team arrives to ensure the quality cleaning.
