5 Questions to Ask Your House Cleaner Before Cleaning

5 Questions to Ask Your House Cleaner Before Cleaning 28 Jun

Researching a professional house cleaner or home cleaning service may sound a little daunting at first, but it’s okay! Hiring a professional house cleaner is a great way to save time, reduce stress, and improve the overall health of your home. Plus, you have a chance to support a local business. What’s not to love?

But how do you find a house cleaner you’ll work well with? At Mrs. Clean Pittsburgh we want you to be fully informed and feel comfortable throughout the hiring and research process. So here are some questions to ask a potential house cleaner and help you find the right fit for your cleaning needs. 

Top 5 Important Questions for Your Home Cleaning Service

Whether you are located in Pittsburgh or the surrounding suburbs of Monroeville or Mt. Lebanon, you want to make the right decision for your cleaning needs, the first time. Check out these questions to ask!

1. Do you have references?

Any professional cleaning company that is worth its weight has reviews, references, and client testimonials. Because let’s face it, people talk and over 1,000 clients have spoken! Mrs. Clean Pittburgh has been serving the Pittsburgh area and surrounding areas of Mt. Lebanon, Monongahela, Murrysville, and Monroeville for over 24 years. Positive cleaning references are a good starting point to know that you can not only trust the cleaning company but feel safe with them cleaning your house or office.

2. How much do you charge for house cleaning?

Most cleaning companies either charge a flat rate for your home cleaning or by the hour for your cleaning service. At Mrs. Clean Pittsburgh we choose to charge by the hour on your initial cleaning service and only for the period our cleaning technicians are cleaning your house. Our Initial One Time General Cleanings start at $130.

On Recurring Maintenance Services, we charge a flat rate to clean your home regularly. Every cleaning job is different just like every home is unique. Pricing often depends on the cleaning service requested, the size of the house, and additional customization to meet your home cleaning needs. Our Recurring Maintenance Cleanings start at $110.00.

We know your time is valuable and our instant online estimate feature is just one way we help to accommodate your schedule and provide you with information to make the right decision. If you want to customize your estimate further to meet your needs, please give us a call and we look forward to answering your questions.

3. What types of cleaning products do you use?

While some cleaning companies in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas might not be as transparent. It is important to ask what type of cleaning products they may use in your house. We bring all products and equipment needed to clean and the cleaning technicians are trained in using the products.  Many of the cleaning products we use are national brands such as Windex, Spartan, Zep, Mr. Clean, Clorox, Simple Green, and Member’s Mark. We also offer Envirox, a green, eco-friendly home cleaning product on request to ensure the best, safest clean for your home or business.

4. What does a house cleaning include?

This varies for every cleaning company and the services they provide. However, it is important to ask to know what you are actually paying for and what will be professionally cleaned in your home. Mrs. Clean Pittsburgh offers residential and commercial cleaning services that include but are not limited to: Regularly Scheduled Cleaning, One-time Cleaning, Move-in, and Move-out Cleaning, Restoration and Construction Cleanout, Spring Cleaning, Holiday Cleaning, Special Occasion Cleaning, and Pre & Post Party Cleaning.

Choosing the right type of cleaning services to be performed in your home is the only way to have a successful outcome when you hire a cleaning service. If you insist on purchasing less service than you need, you will be disappointed with the results no matter who you hire. It is for this reason, that we strongly suggest that you start with a Deep Clean on your first service visit. A Maintenance General Cleaning is only recommended if you’ve had a professional cleaning within the last four weeks.

5. Are you insured and bonded?

You want the house cleaner coming to make your life easier to also have insurance. Just in case! Make sure when hiring a cleaning company that they are insured and bonded. Mrs. Clean Pittsburgh carries comprehensive liability and bonded insurance to provide the client with the peace of mind that if an accident were to occur, they are covered and have no liability.  It is common to find most cleaners in the industry that don’t carry insurance while on your property.  We can provide you with a copy of the Certificate of Insurance upon request.
