Top Tips for Choosing the Best Residential Cleaner in Town

When the temperature hits 60 degrees and the tulips start pushing toward the sky, it is time to think about spring cleaning! For all of you who were cooped up all winter — working from home offices or constantly cleaning around your family and pets — we have some simple advice. Treat yourself and your family to a professional spring cleaning! 

Imperial’s Cleaning Wisdom for Our Loyal Customers

Over the past 25 years, Imperial Cleaning has learned a lot about cleaning and disinfecting. It is no surprise that as homeowners are opening the windows to let the fresh spring air in, our residential cleaning division is receiving lots of calls.

To be helpful, we have put together a few tips that you should consider when trying to find the best residential cleaner. Whether it’s your first professional cleaning or you have booked a cleaning service in the past that didn’t perform well, here are some guidelines that will help you cross off all the items on your spring cleaning checklist.

Tip 1:  Know how long your cleaner(s) will be at your home and how many cleaners will be there.

Some cleaners bill by the hour, while other cleaners bill by the job. The quality of the job can depend on how many cleaners are providing you service and their energy level. Typically, a team of two to four cleaners can do more in a shorter time frame and will do higher quality work than a one-person team.

Tip 2:  Get an estimate in writing before you book an appointment

While professional house cleaning can be a relatively minor expense, no one likes to have surprises thrown at them. We recommend that you talk to your cleaning company and make sure they have good information about the size of the cleaning job, the number of rooms that will be cleaned, and any special cleaning requests.

Tip 3: Find out if your cleaner is eco-friendly

In 2021, all the best residential cleaners offer green cleaning services that minimize the impact on our planet without sacrificing the quality of your cleaning. Make sure your cleaning company uses environmentally conscious products that are safe for both people and pets.

Tip 4: Check if your cleaning company is licensed, insured, and bonded

Your home is your castle, and you need to feel secure that the people who enter your residence to clean are completely vetted and trustworthy. A quality professional cleaner will have done background checks on all their employees and have them on file.

Tip 5:  Make sure your cleaner owns their own equipment

No one wants the added cost of having to supply cleaning products to your cleaner. Find out first if a cleaning company will be bringing their own equipment and supplies. The best residential cleaners have been thoroughly tested on all the products they use and defined as safe and effective.

Tip 6:  Ask if your cleaning company uses proper PPE

Professional cleaning companies take good care of their employees’ health and wellness. For the past year, cleaners have been on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic as first responders. Make sure the company you choose doesn’t take any shortcuts on personal protective equipment (PPE) and follows the CDC’s PPE guidelines.
