Everyone has a different idea of what a luxury item might be. Some would say an expensive car, while others might list jewellery or clothing first. However, most would agree that having cleaning maids that come in and help you with your housework would be something that would indeed be a fabulous luxury for almost anyone. Luckily, this type of luxury is not always that expensive, and most companies do a fantastic job of making life easier for those who simply don’t have the time and energy to clean their homes the way they wish.
Some cleaning maids come in teams, and this is probably the best way to get them. This means they work faster, and they are in and out of your home. They have their own methods of getting your home done as quickly as they can without compromising the quality of their work. Though there isn’t a lot of training to become cleaning maids, they learn what works and what doesn’t rather quickly, and there is always someone inspecting the job before the team leaves your home. If they do miss something, most come back and take care of it, free of charge, of course.
There are a few things you can do to speed up and assist your cleaning maids in doing a better job for you. You will have to ask what they do and how much each thing costs. Most companies go by the hour at first, and then give you a set price on a weekly or biweekly cleaning. You should find out if they include windows, ovens, and other special items in that cost, or if that might cost you more. Each company has their own set of rules and regular things that their cleaning maids do, so don’t forget to ask about special pricing for the extras.
Before your cleaning maids come, have new sheets set out (if they do this) on each bed, and have rooms picked up. If you don’t pick up, they may spend too much time doing just that, and that is not normally included in the price. Their main concern is cleaning bathrooms, kitchens, vacuum, and dusting. Those chores usually clean the whole house, but clutter slows them down and may add to your costs. Some companies also empty waste baskets for you. If you have special instructions for your cleaning maids and you won’t be there when they arrive, a note is always welcome.
