What inspired you to start your own cleaning business?

I’ve always been organised and kept my house or flat tidy. When I was growing up, my older sister used to pay me some of her pocket money to clean her room because I would do it so well! I then realised I could get more from her by offering to wash the linen, vacuum, and dust. That entrepreneurial spirit has stayed with me, gaining momentum year after year.

What cleaning services do you provide for clients?

I’m able to craft a flexible schedule which allows me to work around the times that suit you best. I can clean your house whilst you’re at work, do the daily chores so you can prioritise looking after the puppy, or even just tackle the ironing so you don’t have to. If you’re looking for a regular vacuum and spruce up, or a one-off clean before a dinner party, just let me know!

Their services can be very good, and provide great value for money. Hiring a cleaner from an agency is a little more expensive. This is understandable – they are usually trained to a specific standard. This means that all of the contractors within the agency have a required skill level.

So what should you think about when hiring a house cleaner? Bark makes it easy to look at different professionals and get quotes from them, too. You can narrow down the hiring process to a few of your favourites, but you should ask a few questions before you do so.

Vetting your prospects is important, and will make sure you end up with a professional that can handle the types of cleaning you require in your home.

  • Testimonials/references? – Proof of work quality

  • Do they have Public Liability Insurance? – For peace of mind in case of accidents

  • Do they have any accreditations?

  • What supplies do they use/are they their own? – Need to be suitable for pets/family etc

Take a look at the above points (and think of some of your own), too. This will enable you to pick the right cleaning professional the first time around.

A dirty home not only looks unpleasant, but can be harmful to your health, too. One thing that may affect you and your family are allergies, in particular, dust. Dust is a common issue in many homes, and can contain allergens that cause symptoms such as a runny nose or itchy eyes. An experienced cleaner will be able to use specialised equipment to make sure your home is dust-free.

Tools such as High Efficiency Particulate Air filters (within vacuums) are used to thoroughly clean home environments. But they don’t just work wonders on carpets and floors either - they are so effective that they can even gather dust particles hanging around in the atmosphere. Dust, debris and dead skin nesting within your home are picked up in one fell swoop.

A proper cleaning professional will get to deep cleaning bathrooms and kitchens as well – two areas in particular where harmful bacteria thrive. Think mould and fungi - we’re sure you’d much rather have these swiftly removed from your home.

The arsenal of equipment cleaners carry is nothing to be sneered at, either. Long dusters and a range of sponges and mops are typical fare, but advanced cleaning agents mean that difficult contaminants are erased for good. You’ll be surprised at how much easier you breathe after some deep cleaning!

Attention to detail is very important in a cleaning service. Any cleaner worth their salt will cover all of the areas you expect, plus extra space, nooks and crannies that are easy to overlook.

One fault that is easy to make when cleaning yourself is using the wrong chemicals on the wrong surfaces. In particular, putting the incorrect cleaning agents on woodwork can be a nightmare and cause irreparable damage to furniture. Your cleaner will know what is appropriate for each and every windowsill, tile, mirror and ledge in your home. Furniture and picture frames are well-accounted for too, leaving your belongings not only clean, but in great condition.

While cleaning the home has all of these benefits, such a job is time-consuming and takes a lot of effort. Having a professional to help you means that they can commit to doing a job well done, and seeing to it that no stone is left unturned. Not only will your house be a safe and clean environment, but a cleaner will help to maintain this cleanliness week after week, saving you hours of upkeep.

With a professional cleaning service, you can be assured that your house is kept spotless, while you handle your day-to-day tasks in confidence. Less stress is great, but having more time on your hands to spend your family is priceless.
