Why hiring a private cleaner off the street is a bad idea ?

Q.Why choose professional cleaners when i can just hire a private cleaner for x-amount

  • A.This question comes up occasionally, everyone loves to save a bit of money, on the face of things your hourly rate may be less but there are a few factors that people often overlook.
  • We get a lot of customers who have tried hiring private cleaning staff by placing adverts in local papers etc. The results are varied, often good enough at first but quickly we hear that standards begin to slip, areas are missed, some cleaners would nip in for an hour when they were being paid for 3 hours, not realising that the home alarm system was logging their blatant time theft.
  • Hiring professional cleaning services from us means you are getting a cleaning service provided by professional, trained, cleaners.
  • We are fully insured, all our staff have supplied full references and advanced criminal disclosures.
