Things to consider

Here are a few things to consider when booking your cleaner.
 
  • Do I have a serviceable vacuum cleaner, bucket and mop in the property?
  • Do I have comprehensive cleaning supplies or do I need the cleaner to bring them?
  • Am I allocating enough time for my cleaner to do everything I want? Do I need to prioritise tasks in case there is insufficient time?
  • Have I added extra time onto the booking for ironing, oven cleaning or other extra tasks?
 
If you are ever unsure about anything, the best thing to do is ask your cleaner! They are experienced professionals and know how to leave your house looking its best.
