How To Choose A Perth House Cleaning Service
Don’t even consider hiring a Perth house cleaner without first reading this!
Come knockoff time on Friday’s, most Aussie’s are itching to get moving with their weekend plans. The BBQ won’t start itself after all!
House cleaning fails to weasel its way in, or in the rare case it does, it’s not a welcome visitor (did someone say ‘Mother in-law’?). Who wants to spend a minute of their precious weekend scrubbing their shower tiles?
Chances are you don’t enjoy cleaning, but we know some cool folks who do.
For a reasonable fee, you can enjoy your time off from work rather than just doing more ‘work’ in a different environment. It’s no surprise most cleaning professionals will do a far superior job than you would have as many have been cleaning 5 days a week for 10+ years. You can be sure, no self-respecting cleaning professional would leave a smudge in your kitchen sink or dust pile in your lounge room.
Not sure how to hire a Perth cleaning service? Let’s look at a few essentials.
Where to find the A+ cleaners?
- Speak to your friends and see if anyone has suggestions
- Google it! Simply search ‘Perth cleaning service’ or ‘YOUR SUBURB cleaner’ in order to find someone local
- Post a quote request onto job boards (e.g. https://www.oneflare.com.au)
Whichever service you use be sure to check public reviews (Google Reviews is best).
Do you need to provide a checklist?
Put simply – No you do not need to provide a checklist. Professional cleaning services should have their own checklists which they have crafted based on thousands of hours of experience. Feel free to ask for these checklists so you can review prior to finalising the quote.
With that said though, if you know what you want done than you should state this up front. This allows you to receive an accurate quote and also sets the standard up front with the prospective cleaner. It also ensures they know if they need to bring any specific chemicals or equipment based on your list of tasks.
Also put consideration into those tasks or areas of the house will don’t require a regular clean. A common example of this is guest bedrooms. Don’t pay a cleaning service to clean a guest bedroom every fortnight if you only have guests a couple times a year!
Like most relationships in life, the long term success of your relationship with your cleaning service comes down to communication.
What is price of a house cleaner in Perth?
Well you have two options, either hourly or flat rate pricing.
For hourly clean jobs you set a specific number of hours you want the cleaner/s to be in your home. If they aren’t able to complete all the tasks from their checklist or that you’ve requested, they will touch base with you and ask if you would like them to stay on. This can mean you go into the cleaning service thinking it is going to cost $180 and it ends up costing $250 once the clean is completed in full.
Flat rate pricing
The difference between this and an hourly service is you do not have to worry about if you have not booked enough time. You just select your house size and the cleaning service gets it sparkling. Typically, there is additional extras you can add on such as an oven clean, interior window clean or fridge clean to name a few.
Time to take action!
You now have the tools to choose your Perth house cleaning service, and without the usual stress which accompanies that decision.
