Preparing for Your Cleaning Service

Preparing for a cleaning service

Picking up is an important step in preparing for your cleaning service.

Hiring a residential cleaning service to clean your home is a great way to free up time and allow you to enjoy your weekends without worrying about cleaning. But as much as people love to think cleaning services do everything in your home, there are some things that you should be doing to prepare for our cleaners. Read on to find out!

Picking Up

Tidying up before our staff rings your doorbell is one of the first things you should do. It will let our staff concentrate on cleaning your home instead of moving items out of the way. This will also give you the chance to get organized and make sure nothing gets thrown away or misplaced before our staff arrives.

Put Pets Away

We love cats and dogs as much as you do, but they may not like us as much as you do. While cats tend to hide during our service, dogs may not like us entering their territory. So take your dog for a walk or put them in the backyard to avoid any incidents. If your cat doesn’t handle stress very well or doesn’t like strangers, put them into a room you don’t want cleaned or put them in a crate for our visit.

Identify Problem Areas

We all know there are some areas of your home that need special attention. Unfortunately, we don’t live in your lovely home so we don’t know if there are areas that need extra attention. Make sure to tell us when we confirm your appointment or when we start setting up our equipment. This will help us a lot the time it will take to clean the special area instead of rushing at the last minute to go over it again.

Make Sure We Can Get In

If you plan your service for when you are at work or if you plan on walking the dog during this time, make sure you leave detailed instruction on how to get into your home. Depending on your preferences, hide a key for us in your mailbox or give us an alarm code so we’re able to get inside.

With a little preparation work from you, our staff of nice, courteous, and thorough cleaners will come to your home and do a job you will be proud of. For more information on hiring a residential cleaning service, call Ivete’s Cleaning Service today!
