Your home and workspace is a reflection of who you are. So maintaining a spick and span environment is essential to portray class and efficiency. However, cleaning can be a time-consuming process, and if you have a busy schedule, enlisting the services of a cleaning company is a great solution.

While hiring a cleaning service, keep in mind that cleaning is a skilled profession. Expert cleaning companies have experience and know which areas of a house or office often require more attention. They train their employees to understand the compounds in cleaning supplies and which products are safe or appropriate. Unfortunately, many homeowners and businesses fail to recognize the efforts that go into delivering excellent cleaning results. This encourages them to choose inefficient companies that lack standards and put at risk the health of your loved ones, employees, and even yourself.

To help you avoid costly errors while seeking cleaning experts, Ricavi Enterprises LLC has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make when hiring a cleaning company.

1. Only looking at the price
Hiring cleaners based on their rates can lead to disaster. This comes from the fact that low prices don’t automatically equate to excellent services. In fact, low prices may indicate that the company probably doesn’t have the professional skills to charge high fees. Look at cleaning service rates alone isn’t enough. You must consider their length of experience and quality of service as well.

2. Not checking for license and insurance
Be sure to check if your cleaning has a valid business license and insurance coverage. That way, you are protected from possible damages due to slips, falls, or any other mishaps. It’s your duty to verify that the insurance covers both you and the business from any liabilities in the event of accidents.

3. Not having a scope of work
Knowing the scope of work required is essential when hiring a cleaning company. It lays out the foundation of the job you want the company to perform. The scope of work should contain milestones, deadlines, deliverables, and expectations. If you don’t have a scope of work or if it’s not clear and detailed, the likelihood of failure or miscommunication increases. 

4. Hiring an inexperienced company
There are many repercussions to hiring an amateur cleaning company. It is very easy for a cleaning company to state that they can disinfect homes and offices, but you have to keep in mind that cleaning also involves science, making it a meticulous process. Additionally, paramount issues like safety and compliance requirements must be taken care of. 

5. Not asking for green cleaning product options 
If you don’t want that overpowering smell of chemical disinfectants in your house or office, then eco-friendly cleaning products are the way to go. With more natural and non-toxic solutions available today, it would be a mistake not to ask your cleaning company is they can use green cleaning products to clean your space.
