How to save money when hiring a cleaning service.
No, do bot hire the cheapest around.
It is not wise to go with the cheapest maid or cleaning service you can find because cheap in the end will cost you more. This is not the way of saving money and as everything in life, well, you get what you pay for. What I’m going to show you instead, is how you can have a quality cleaning service for less or even for free.
Fist tip: Get in touch with cleaning providers asking for a quote. It is a good sign if they tell you they can’t do it without seeing your place first, because phone and online estimates are just guesses. Any reputable cleaning service or individual will come to your home to give a free quote, so let them in and give you estimates.
Now, pay attention to this: do NOT hire anyone until you’ve gotten the highest quote. Beware of a cleaning service who offers you rock-bottom prices for cleaning your home. Cleaning a house properly takes time, effort, good products and equipment, so be realistic about this. Higher priced services are priced higher for a reason. They pay proper taxes, use proper supplies, their staff is properly trained, and so on…
Second tip: Ask the highest priced cleaning service if they offer referral discounts. You will find they typically do. Most higher priced companies will offer not only a better quality of service but better discounts and incentives, making them more affordable than their lower-priced competitor. WonderMaids gives you from £10 to £40 off a cleaning for every referral made. Some of our clients get free cleanings because of this, and we gain more clients in the end; it’s truly a win-win game.
Third tip: Be flexible. Most people want their house cleaned for the weekend, so is not likely that you’ll get a reduced price on your clean if you require it to be on a Friday. If there is an unfilled slot available on a Monday or Tuesday, it may be offered at a reduced price. Cleaning companies would rather fill the slot with a discounted client than have no paying client at all.
Asking for help in order to put more time back in your life to do more important things isn’t as costly or as embarrassing as you may think.
