So you’ve made the decision to stop spending your free nights and weekends cleaning your home and decided to hire a cleaning service.
Congratulations! You’ve taken the first step to getting your time back. But now you’re faced with a plethora of different options to choose from. It might be a little overwhelming at first, but with a bit of industry-specific knowledge we can help you find your way.
When you begin to look for cleaning services, you will discover three kinds of cleaners:
- Independent Companies
Which of these is the right fit for you, depends primarily on your budget and personal preferences?
Freelance cleaners will be the cheapest option. They typically will not be insured or bonded and often will ask their customers to provide the cleaning supplies and equipment.
Your next option would be to go with an independent cleaning company. They will be more expensive than freelance cleaners, but here you will most likely not have to provide any cleaning supplies or equipment. Each company differs slightly but most offer the benefits that come along with a professional organization:
- Customer Service
- Workmanship Guarantees
- Green Cleaning Options
- Organized Systems, etc.
Finally with a franchise, you will get all the benefits that come with an independent cleaning company but with more advanced systems. In return, a franchise will charge the highest prices out of the three.
Here at Silverline Maids, we are an independent cleaning company.
We believe that this enables us to offer our customers the best mix of affordability and quality of service. With that said, we hope this information helps you find the right cleaner for you, even if it doesn’t end up being us.
