Prima Reinigung – things to consider before hiring a cleaner

If you have never hired professional cleaners, making that decision will require some consideration and attention in order to pick a service that meets your expectations.

Cleaning and household chores need to be done on a regular basis, but you might feel like you would rather do something else with that extra time. If that is the case, you can consider hiring a cleaner who’ll help to keep your home spotless.

SPIC AND SPAN. experts have put together some things to keep in mind before hiring professional cleaning help.

Everyone is different and so is their home

If you live alone in a city studio apartment, your needs will be rather different to those of a large family inhabiting a suburban house. Make sure your choice corresponds to your specific circumstances. For example, one cleaner is perfectly capable of handling a studio or a one bedroom apartment, but if your place is bigger than that, it’s more reasonable and efficient to hire a 2 person cleaning team to achieve the best results.

Cleaning requires time

In order to clean your home effectively, your cleaner will need some time and there’s no way around it. Some services might promise a deep cleaning that they'll manage in 1 hour, but that it simply not feasible. After all, nobody should rush and overlook half of the areas that need to be paid attention to.

Generally speaking, cleaning probably takes more time than you might expect. For instance, cleaning a studio apartment or a one bedroom flat will take 2.5-3.5 hours. Problematic areas such as bathroom or kitchen each might consume 1 hour of your professional cleaner’s time. In addition, first time cleaning always takes longer than maintenance cleaning, particularly if the place hasn’t been deeply cleaned in a while.

Communication is key while hiring a cleaner

It might be possible that you consider you list of expectations self-explanatory, while they’re considered extra by other people. In order to avoid misunderstandings and disappointments, make sure to communicate with your cleaner beforehand and let them know what you’d like them to focus on. The same applies to cleaning supplies – if you’d like to use (or avoid using) certain cleaning solutions, be open about it. Even though most cleaning professionals bring cleaning solvents with them (and SPIC AND SPAN. is no exception), it’s a good idea to keep specific products at home if you prefer them.
