A lot families are having home cleaning services come in at least once a week. However, if you are busy this much, chances are your house cleaning service is working when you are not home, or otherwise occupied. Either way you are not standing over them watching every move they make, and nor should you be. Instead, you can take these few tips and check their work once they are gone.
Any experienced house cleaning service in Boston for example should be doing your baseboards often. When you come home after your residential cleaning crew has been in you should check the baseboards for scuffs and or dust. If you find the obvious presence of either, one you will know your house cleaning crew is not doing their job.
Dust and Cobwebs
While you may put up mock cobwebs for Halloween, you do not want the real thing taking up space. The most obvious spots will probably be cobweb and dust free, however what about the less obvious areas? Check in the corners of your room especially next to the ceiling, above cabinets, light fixtures and lower legs or shelves of chairs, book cases etc…
The bathroom is one area of the house where no skimping should be allowed. Germs, mold and bacteria can spread and actually cause illness if not properly cleaned. The backside of your shower curtain, along base of the tub and behind the toilet is the most often missed areas. Watch for signs of mold, dust, and other substances in these areas.
If you have lived in your home for any length of time you probably have at least a few whatnot lying around. Be sure to move these and see if the shelf or table they are on has been thoroughly cleaned. Too often, a house cleaning crew will simply clean around things and not move them. Of course, you will want to be sure this is in your agreement and that they are insured should something get broken.
Do you have a room in your home where the door is always open? Dens, game rooms and even living rooms sometimes have doors that are never shut and residential cleaners may forget to clean behind the door! You would be amazed how much dust and debris can build up in this area.
Couch or Love Seat
Another area to check is the furniture. Couches, love seats or chairs that are frequently used should have the pillows pulled off and the dirt and dust vacuumed away. Remember to check your maid service Boston for this commonly missed area.
Just because your home smells nice and looks great at first glance does not mean your residential cleaning crew is doing a complete job. When you first interview the team, you should be very clear on what you are looking for and a suitable price established. Once that is complete, follow the tips above to ensure you are getting what you paid for.
