Keeping your home neat and tidy can be difficult. Your job, social commitments, and kids’ extra curriculars probably keep you busy on their own. When you get home from a hectic and tiring day, the last thing you want to do is tackle a long list of chores.
That’s where a maid service can help. Not only can they stay on top of the cleaning for you, but also they can visit your home at a time when you are gone. That way, you can come home to a completely clean home without ever having to lift a finger. All you have to do is sit back, put your feet up, and relax after a hard day’s work, knowing that everything about housekeeping has been taken care of for you.
Typically, a maid service can provide weekly or bi-weekly cleanings. But, many services also offer one-time cleanings for special events. So, if you are hosting a family gathering or a holiday party, you do not have to worry about whether or not your house is clean because a maid service can handle the job and get everything in order before your guests arrive.
If you want to arrange for regularly scheduled cleanings, it is best to provide the maid service with a list of tasks that you want completed in each room to ensure that you get the results that you want.
When it comes to cleaning the kitchen, you will probably want everything to be completely sanitized. After all, this is where your meals are prepared and the spread of germs, including things like salmonella, can easily occur. You can request that the floors be scrubbed, the counters be cleaned, and the sink be washed. In addition, you can ask that bigger tasks, like cleaning out the refrigerator or scouring the stove happen occasionally.
For most people, the bathroom is the easiest room in the home to become cluttered and dirty. You can request that the shower be scrubbed down to get rid of soap scum and build up. You can also ask that the toilet, sink, and floors be cleaned.
For the living room, bedroom, and any other rooms in your home, the floors should either be swept or vacuumed and dusting should take place. You may also want the maid service to pick up random items, clean the windows, or deodorize the room.
The easiest way of making sure that you are happy with the results is to make a list of your expectations ahead of time and supply it to the agency. With everyone on the same page, you’re sure to be happy with your clean home.
