If you’ve made the decision to hire a domestic cleaner for your home, chances are you’ve had to think long and hard about it. Will it be worth the additional cost – could you really get the cleaning done if you put your mind to it and got yourself more organised? Or has it become a necessity, after all, if you’re working long hours each week and you also have dependents to look after, the last thing you really want to be doing is moving the furniture to vacuum behind it or wash yet another load of towels as the airing cupboard is almost empty.
Once you’ve decided to bite the bullet and join the other 28% of UK workers who have hired a cleaner (thanks to MoppedUp for the survey results http://www.moppedup.com/) it’s really important that you do your research. You might have a friend or relative who has offered to do a couple of hours cleaning for you each week, but what happens if you’re not happy with their standard of cleaning? Or if they keep leaving before their agreed finish time? It’s usually best to stick with a professional house cleaning company, who can help you to clarify exactly what is expected of your cleaner.
