Moving home can be a stressful and costly experience. For this reason the move is often out sourced to professional movers and cleaners.
End of tenancy cleaning, also referred to as ‘bond cleaning’, is often stipulated in tenancy agreements. It’s a provision designed to protect the homeowner and safeguard the marketability of the property for new occupants. This article will outline how to vet and select the clean team for your move.
Key Questions You Should Ask Your Cleaning Service
At this stage you may have utilized search engines or asked among friends and have a list of candidates in mind. The following three questions are designed to screen the field until the best remain.
Can I have a free consultation?
A free consultation is the industry standard. This consultation will allow the company in question to outline their service, fees and most importantly your needs.
Be wary of companies who aren’t willing to provide this.
Do you have liability insurance?
Even among the best of us, accidents happen. Damage to fabric or surfaces may occur during the move. An item of furniture may be scratched or tarnished. For this reason every professional company needs to carry liability insurance to protect both parties.
Do you have positive reviews?
An established firm will have an array of positive reviews. If these reviews aren’t posted on their website, they may be posted on third party sites including Google Business, Facebook and Bark.
If your company fails to meet these standards, revise your shortlist of cleaners accordingly. While you should certainly filter your search based on competitive prices, don’t allow price alone to be the determining factor.
