Ensure a thorough cleaning
When it comes to scheduling house cleaning visits, many homeowners wonder if they should be home during cleaning. Top Dallas house cleaners answer this frequently asked question.
Q: Is cleaning usually done when I am at home or away?
A: Raquel Nipp, the owner of Raquel’s Cleaning Service in Dallas says that it doesn’t matter, but she likes to have someone there for the first time they clean. “When the customer is there they can watch us work and see what we are doing,” Nipp says. “There’s a lot of cleaning to be done that the person doesn’t always notice, but it takes time. Since we charge by hour, it can be expensive.” By being at home during the first cleaning, you not only see what will be done but also get a chance to communicate your cleaning preferences to the crew. This way you can make sure everyone has the same expectations and get better results. Most of B & D Cleaning Services’ customers are home during cleaning, according to owner Darla Thomas. It isn’t a requirement though. “If they can’t be home, they usually give us a key, leave one out or give us the garage code,” she says.
