Cleaning is a task that has to be done in any house, where ever you live. It's also a ton of hard work, with all of the different rooms that need different cleaning agents, not to mention all of the elbow grease required to reach those tough spots. Compound this with the fact that it has to be done regularly, and it's not hard to see why people don't have the time or patience for it. So what can be done?
Well, you could hire a cleaning service. It's not as much of an extravagant priveledge than you might expect, though there are a lot of different services and price ranges for you to consider. So, whether you live (or are based) in Acton, or elsewhere in the Ealing bourough, a cleaner may be for you. If you agree with this assessment, then allow me to share some tips on how to find the service that's right for you.
First off, remember to shop around and do your research. Don't just go for the first company you come across. Find a handful of firms that are based in your area and compare their services and credentials. You want the company with the finest trained staff with the best capacity for customer service at the most affordable price. Compare their cleaning methods too, make sure they're all environmentally friendly, pet and child safe, and other such worries. Check to see if they're consistent with the cleaner they send. If they strive to send you the same member of staff, then he or she is only going to do a better and more efficient job every time, as they get used to your home and its foibles. Finding out even little things like that is a fine idea, and will only make their service more suited to you.
If there's something specific you want cleaning, be sure to ask if their methods are compatible. For example, if your carpet is expensive and made up of delicate fibres you would want their cleaning method to reflect that, seeing as most carpet cleaners use 'hot water extraction', which is a heavy duty process that could damage delicate materials. Same goes for your furniture – if you feel they should be careful, just let them know before you hire them.
A cleaning service is a luxury, so be sure to budget carefully before hiring one. The majority of the cleaning firms have a variety of price points to suit your spending limit. The base price should cover what you expect; convenience, reliability and all around good service. Higher price points usually include additional services, such as free carpet shampooing, and tailor made cleaning programmes. If services such as this sound appealing to you, juse ask, and they'll make what they offer clear to you.
So, now that you've found the right cleaning service for you, you can spend your free time on something less dreary, like spending time with the family, friends or putting some work into your hobbies and interests. A cleaning service offers you convenience, piece of mind, and courteous service for less money than you might think.
