I started a cleaning service company here in my home town of Toronto back in 2006, it’s called Clean My Space – who would have thought!? Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about this industry and I wanted to answer a question that I get asked a lot: How do I know which cleaning company to hire?

Whether you want to hire a cleaning service to help you with a one-off task, an annual spring clean, or something on a more regular basis, there are a few things you need to inquire about before you make a decision.

Bringing someone in who isn’t part of a formal cleaning service company carries with it a host of risks. “But, it’s cheaper to hire an under-the-table cleaning lady for cash!” is something I often hear. Funny enough, I always advise people to hire that cleaning lady if price is their main concern, and if things go well, keep her close. But, when things don’t go well, that’s when you bring in a service company. Sure, it’s more expensive, but there are many, many benefits, you get from bringing in a professional company. So, here are ten things you should consider when you’re looking to hire a cleaning service company.

1. Get Referrals From Family & Friends

Start by asking friends and family who they use – referrals give you an inside look at what a company is all about – not just what they say on their website (let’s be honest, a company can write anything). Companies can make themselves sound amazing, credible and experienced, but a referral from a friend or family can paint a different picture and carries more weight.

2. Take Online Reviews With a Grain of Salt

Happy people don’t tend to write as many reviews as unhappy people who feel compelled to shower the world with their terrible experiences. Remember, oftentimes, those reviews are people using it as an opportunity to vent, blow a story out of proportion, or try to damage the reputation of the company. If a company has ALL terrible reviews, that’s definitely a red flag, but if they have mostly good reviews and a few bad ones, that’s pretty average. No one is perfect.

The other thing to watch out for is a company with a perfect score. I know companies who pay clients to write reviews for them, so of course, they’re going to be 100% perfect. Regardless, a good rule of thumb is to avoid a company with all perfect scores, avoid the company with all terrible scores, and find the ones with really consistent high scores.

3. Bonding, Insurance & Worker’s Compensation

Does the company have the ability to cover the costs of any damage done to your home, any theft, or if an injury occurs on your property? If they don’t have this coverage, you could be on the hook for money, items stolen, property damaged, or an injured worker. A company should be willing to tell you if they have this coverage and provide copies of their policies at your request.

Now, be aware that this adds to the cost of operating a service company, which is why the rates are higher per hour or per job. However, this level of assurance is valuable, especially when you’re letting someone into your home, and could ultimately be on the hook for something that goes wrong – remember, we live in a litigious world!

4. Experience, Affiliations & Accreditations

How long have they been in business for? Does the company have any awards, accreditations, or affiliations with professional organizations? I like to look out for this because it makes me feel reassured that a company is trustworthy and concerned with their reputation.

In my company’s case, we have won three awards and we are a member in excellent standing with the Better Business Bureau. These are things we’ve worked hard to obtain and tout proudly as a company. It shows our staff, clients, and potential clients, that we have done everything we can to offer exceptional service. To give this a bit more context, there are a few companies here in Toronto that have a bad reputation and simply close down and re-open under another name. So, checking in to these affiliations lends credibility to a company’s desire to remain in good standing with their customers.

5. Service Offerings

Does the company take requests or offer a fixed service? How detailed will they get? Depending on what you want to be done, inquire as to what level of service is offered. If you can customize it and hire someone to come and tick a bunch of things off your to-do list, or if you just get the same service each visit irrespective of what you want to be done, or, if you can do a combination. Companies offer a variety of options; none are right or wrong, you just need to find what suits your needs and your lifestyle.

6. Satisfaction Guaranteed!

Be sure to ask about breakage, damage, and satisfaction guarantees – a company should stand behind its work and its workers. If you’re not happy as a client, what are they prepared to do for you, how will they make it right?

It’s just a fact of life – things will break. The way we’ve always handled it is to be highly responsive, sincerely apologetic, and fix anything, at any cost. This sounds crazy, and I know many companies don’t do this. They tell the client to claim it under their own homeowner’s insurance policy, or chalk it up to an unavoidable mistake.

If you’re not happy with the cleaning, what will the company offer you? A touch-up? A free cleaning? Nothing? Companies have different policies about this so find out what recourse you have if you’re not happy with the level of service you’ve received.

7. Employees vs. Contract Workers

Find out if the staff are employees or if they’re contract workers. Typically, contract workers don’t enjoy the same benefits as employees do, nor do they have the same type of oversight. While they’re generally cheaper to hire, they are often times inconsistently trained and are not as reliable because the fact is they’re “replaceable” to a large extent – by that I mean that there is little to no investment in their actual work product by the company outsourcing the work, so they can quickly move on to another contractor while having lost little to no investment (training, taxes, benefits, etc.).

An employee has a better set up than a contract worker does, and the company has more input and oversight over that worker (and more investment), which ultimately means they are more accountable to their employer. Employees also pay taxes and have taxes paid on their behalf by the employer, which supports the province or state and country you live in. These two categorizations and the laws surrounding them will vary from country to country. In Canada, I know the rules inside and out, and our staff are employees because it is better for them (sadly, more expensive and less profitable for us!), and better for the country.

8. Understand Who You’re Hiring

Who is actually coming into your home and how are they references checked? Is it a bona-fide service company with a consistent roster of employees, or is it a sharing-economy company with random people popping up? Remember, when you hire a cleaner, you’re letting someone into your most sacred space which houses your most valuable things; potentially when you’re not home! Who can you really trust? Ask the company how, and if, they interview and background check their staff, do they do background or criminal checks on their staff, and how they plan to schedule you in with the same cleaner as often as possible.

9. Cleaning Supplies

Do they use their own cleaning supplies and tools, or do you have to supply your own? We require our clients to supply their own and, of course, help them determine exactly what they need. We sell kits or provide them with a shopping list based on their specific requirements. I believe that a mop should be used in one house, or else the crud from house A will make its way over to house B.

Further, each house has different needs; pets, people, finishes, and whatnot. I’m a big proponent of using the right products and tools on each surface, and I believe it is better to provide your own to reduce and minimize cross-contamination and potential harm to surfaces.

10. Terms of Service

Find out what the policy for cancelling or changing your service is. This policy should be in place so that you don’t get slapped with any surprise fees. Many companies charge a cancellation fee because it can be hard to reschedule cleaners at the last minute, and the company has to cover off their lost wages. So, if you know this information, you can better plan and prepare for any scheduling issues.

  48. I like how you referenced that when searching for a home cleaning administration, you should begin by approaching loved ones for referrals since it will permit you to have an inside take a gander at what an organization is about, and not exactly what they state on their site. My children are continually making messes, and with my activity, it’s difficult for me to have a great deal of time to clean, so I’ve been contemplating procuring a house keeping administration, however don’t have the foggiest idea how to approach discovering one.

  49. Melissa Maker you mentioned that we must look at the reviews of the previous clients. And yes, I definitely agree that no one is perfect and we can not please all. Thanks for such a great tips.

  50. My husband and I have been thinking of hiring a residential cleaning service since we’ll be out of the country for almost two weeks. Since this will be our first time hiring one, I like what you said about making sure to ask about damage and satisfaction guarantees. With that, I shall then look for a service that is willing to fix anything at any cost, in case that happens.

  51. Well, a very clear explanation about this topic, you did a good job and giving us such useful information that you have shared with us. Thanks for sharing the best and useful information. I am very satisfied with your blog and also with your information.

  52. It makes sense that one must consider a cleaning company that will bring their own cleaning tools and products. My brother sold his house, and he needs to vacate the house as soon as possible. Since he will need to leave the house clean, I will recommend him hiring a cleaning company to leave the place spotless.

  53. My home has been a mess ever since we had our cousins staying over last week, so we are talking about getting professional help. It is helpful that you mentioned that you need to consider getting referrals to help you choose one. Before we choose who to hire, I will be sure to get referrals, so we could be confident in who we would choose to hire.

  54. Great article. I think I love even more the fact of how you have grown such a great business. I am starting my own house cleaning business in South Louisiana and love your tips for clients. I will make sure to incorporate some of this into my service. Thanks again!

  55. I love that you talked about taking online reviews and making sure that they at least have mostly good reviews since no one is exactly perfect.

  56. Melissa, we have recently started our own house cleaning business and your article has been extremely helpful! We’ve been conflicted over providing our own cleaning materials vs having our clients provide them, so your input was very valuable to us. Thanks for the amazing content!

  57. Thanks for this content. I’m working on starting up a cleaning business and it’s nice to see what the other side (clientele) should care about from another person besides me and my friends! I’ll definitely be snooping around the rest of your blog. Cheers 🙂

  58. I want to further add, when we hire cleaning services, we should look for the cleaner mainly. We should ask the company about the person whom they are sending to your home. We should be so demanding about the qualities of the cleaner that the company should feel that the client is very selective in the cleaner. Then they will send you one of the best cleaners from their side. 🙂
    Keep up the good work. Keep sharing.

  59. We have recently started our house cleaning business and came across this article for tips on best practices.
    Couldn’t agree more about the cleaning supplies section, the risk of cross-contamination makes a lot of sense and it’s sensible to minimize the risk of ruining any surfaces.

    House cleaning may not be the most exciting topic to write about, but you did a great job of writing valuable advice. Thank you!

  60. Very nice points. I never thought that affiliations and accreditation’s should also be considered when hiring a home cleaning service until you explained it. I’ll definitely put all the tips that you stated here into consideration before choosing a cleaning company next time. Thank you.

  61. These are all great points, I’m currently working with a growing cleaning company and we were trying to decide whether to hire as independent contractors or employees. After reading this I think we’ll do both but offer a comprehensive benefit package for all workers.

  62. Hi! Your article is very helpful, I own a cleaning company in the US.
    I provide my own cleaning tools and products because it is easier for us when we are used to knowing where everything is and what we will use and for what. when I use client tools it takes me longer to figure out their vacumm etc

  63. I love that you mentioned the importance of hiring a cleaning service with the right amount of experience. We are going to need help cleaning up our home before we move out. Before we choose who to hire, I will be sure to check their experience level.

  64. I would never supply my own house cleaning supplies, that is part of the service I am paying for. If that is a requirement and they wern’t willing to deduct that cost from the service, I would not go with that company. If you are worried about cross contamination they should use washable mopheads or if there is a specific cleaning product I like such as cruelty free, etc I would go with a company that has those same values.

  65. Great article. Well worth the short read. As a professional new to the industry, I’m glad to see someone is putting useful content out on the web. I will be sure to tune into the youtube channel for more useful tools to make sure I’m providing the best service to my customers.

    Thanks again Melissa!

  66. Thank you for stating that you should get referrals from friends and family when hiring a cleaning service. My husband and I are currently looking for a cleaning service. I will definitely utilize all of your great tips and information when hiring a cleaning service.

  67. You should select a cleaning service who is organized and capable of completing a good job. The cleaning service should bring their own supplies. This shows that they are a professional company who understands the business and wanting to serve to the needs of their customers.

  68. I have recently opened a maid service and finding new clients has not been as easy as we had believed it would be. The majority of our customers, at least our recurring customers, are found through word of mouth. As you mentioned, companies can make themselves sound as pretty as they want, but they does not mean they will do the greatest job. We pride ourselves on being the best service in our area and let our past work prove our value.

    This article definitely helps to see the potential customers point of view on what someone is looking for when searching for a maid service.

  69. We are new to the house cleaning industry and I ran into your blog while researching a few things. Your tips and advice are a fantastic insight into what a consumer should consider when approaching a cleaning service and I have taken a few really valuable insights from this. Thanks!

  70. I like the tip that you gave to check the reviews of a cleaning service before you hire them. My wife and I have been talking about finding a cleaning service for our home, and it would be important for us to know that we could find one that will be good for our home. If we decide to find a cleaning service, I will be sure to look for one that has good reviews.

  71. You’re right about saying that I should get referrals from friends who hire home cleaning services. I think I’ll look at online reviews and see if they’re worth trusting. I’ll make sure to look for bonding and insurance so that I’ll be protected from liabilities as a customer.

  72. I like the tip that you gave to choose a cleaning service that is referred to you by family and friends. My wife and I have been talking about finding a cleaning service to help us with our home while we are getting it ready to sell it. If we do, I will be sure to look for a cleaning service that is referred to us.

  73. So over the weekend as I waited and anticipated for my service, I arranged things around the house, some light cleaning and laundry so that when the cleaners come everything will be in their right place and all they have to do is clean. I think everyone has these thoughts so that the cleaner may clean easily and have the only job to clean the house.

  74. You make a great point to make sure that whatever company you hire to clean your home has a breakage, damage, and satisfaction guarantee. My mom has been wanting to hire someone to come and clean her house before a party, but she doesn’t really know what to look for when she is hiring someone. I will be sure to forward this article to her, so that she can have a guide as to what to look for in a cleaning company.

  75. I like the tip that you gave to choose a cleaning service that is referred to you. My wife and I have been talking about finding a cleaning service to help us keep our home looking nice while we are selling it, and it would be important for us to be confident in who we choose to hire. If we decide to find a cleaning service, I will be sure to look for referrals.

  76. I like how you mentioned that when looking for a home cleaning service, you should start by asking friends and family for referrals because it will allow you to have an inside look at what a company is all about, and not just what they say on their website. My kids are always making messes, and with my job, it’s hard for me to have a lot of time to clean, so I’ve been thinking about hiring a house cleaning service, but don’t know how to go about finding one.
