Professional maid services leave your home sparkling to avoid indoor air quality issues, reduce clutter, and improve interior aesthetics. Cleaning services also save time so you can focus on everything else that is going on, and help extend the life of appliances and other household items by keeping them free of dust and dirt. If you intend to schedule your first housekeeping appointment, use these etiquette tips to ensure a smooth process.
Know what your cleaning service package includes.
Ask what your maid service package entails to know what to expect. Many packages include vacuuming and mopping, countertop and other surface disinfecting, and deep-cleaning hard-to-reach areas such as ceiling corners and gaps between furniture and flooring. Learn about the cleaning supplies the team uses, especially if you have allergies to certain products or prefer non-toxic cleansers.
Be respectful of the housekeeper’s time.
Remember that yours is probably not the only home the cleaning experts will visit. Make certain you or a family member is present to let the housekeeping team in to avoid delays that can throw off their schedules for the day. If you will be home during the cleaning, answer the team’s cleaning questions promptly to allow them to finish quickly.
Leave your home in disarray.
Prepare your house for maid services to further expedite the cleaning process. Remove clutter that prevents access to areas that need cleaning. Pick up items that create tripping hazards, including shoes, toys, and clothes. Put small items away that can also impede cleaning, such as jewelry.
Neglect thanking the maid.
Thank your housekeeping team for a job well done either in person or with a note in an obvious location, such as a kitchen counter. Learn whether the maid service accepts tips if you want to leave cash with the note or hand the team an envelope. While tips are not expected, they are always appreciated.
