After a long week grinding away at your nine to five, the last thing any young Ottawa professional wants to do is get down on their hands and knees and scrub their tub and toilet bowl. Roofing and other home services have to be done by a professional, but many people try and undertake their own home cleaning which isn’t any fun. Unfortunately a ton do, and it’s definitely not a highlight of anyone’s week. In recent months, housekeeping and residential cleaning services have become more and more popular for realtors and individual property owners who want to save time, keep their home clean and overall want a seamless cleaning experience.
Ottawa maid services are plentiful, especially if you are a realtor or running a short term rental property so monthly or a-la-carte arrangements are most popular. You can even use this as an upsell for tenants if you can come to a proper pricing arrangement on pricing and frequency. However, in terms of hiring the proper cleaning service, there are some parts of the process you shouldn’t overlook.
Get Clear On What Is To Be Cleaned
First and most importantly – know exactly exactly what is going to be cleaned, the deadline and the price. So many deals go sour when clients realize that they never clarified how clean they needed the unit and to what degree. There is a term in the maid service industry in Ottawa known as ‘deep clean’ and this covers substantially more than a normal weekly clean does. For example, wiping down the interior of your cupboards, ovens as well as baseboards are likely included in a deep clean whereas a simple removal of fingerprints from walls and mirrors are considered a normal weekly clean. Know what you want cleaned, and what the time frame should be before you sign any agreements so there is no confusion whatsoever.
Negotiate Long Term For Better Maid Services
Once you’ve found a cleaner you can trust and have established a rapport with the best way to secure their service in the future and do so at a discount would be to prepay for a certain amount of hours of cleaning. For example, if you want a deep clean done once a month for your unit or perhaps a tenant, pre-paying and scheduling these in advance would certainly lock you in at a good rate and get you ahead of the rest of the pack.
