What Cleaning Professionals Know That You Don’t

How Business Owners Can Benefit from Commercial Cleaning ServicesHave you ever wondered what it’s like to live a day in the life of a professional cleaner? Maybe not, but if you have you might have thought that it could be an interesting life to live.

Professional cleaners enter strangers’ homes every day and touch a lot of spaces in the most intimate way—it’s bound to get interesting. Something that is not hard to guess is that after cleaning for years, professional cleaners are guaranteed to know a lot of information that their customers do not. Read on to learn more about what professional cleaners know that you probably don’t.

If You Want The Job Done Right, It Takes Time

No matter what the size of the space is, it will take a good amount of time to do a thorough job. Most professional cleaning services charge clients hourly. What affects the price the most is the size of the place being cleaned and the amount of work needed to make the apartment as clean as can be.

It is beneficial to know that the first cleaning session will most likely take the longest and be the most expensive. After the first visit, you can expect the price to be less because the cleaning professional will have a better understanding of the area and will not have as much to clean after an initial deep clean is done.

Cleaning Prices

First Class Cleaning’s prices are based on the square footage of your apartment or office. We charge hourly and the price will increase if there are additional services added to the general cleaning service that we provide. Additional services include laundry services, appliance cleaning, wall washing, window cleaning and carpet cleaning.

With our experience, we can tell you that a studio apartment typically takes three hours to clean, which costs approximately $99.95. A one-bedroom/one-bathroom residence will take four hours to thoroughly clean and cost $129.95.

Being a Regular Has It’s Benefits

As a recurring service member with First Class Cleaning, we offer you a number of discounts towards our general cleaning service and additional services. You have the option of having the same professional cleaner visit your home each time and they would be at your disposal for $30/hour.

After First Class Cleaning is done cleaning your home or office, you can be sure to find your space vacuumed, mopped, dusted and shined throughout.

Your Priorities Become Our Priorities

When you hire First Class Cleaning, the places in your home that hold priority when it comes to cleaning become our priorities. We work for you. It is easier for us to make you happy with the work that we do when you make your priorities clear to us. Tell us which areas you would like us to focus our attention on and which areas you don’t care so much about. We will always accommodate.

Communication is Key

Communication between you and your professional cleaner is important and beneficial to all parties. There may be places in your home that are off-limits to us or you would like us to not touch, or you might want additional services in the future that we are required to charge extra for. Let’s make sure that we are always on the same page.

Talk to your professional cleaner about how they plan on spending their time in your home and what they expect to clean while working. If at any time they are cleaning too much or too little, or doing something you do not approve of, then tell them—First Class Cleaning appreciates any feedback given by customers.

The bottom line is that when the job you expect us to do is accomplished then everyone is happier. We strive to perform quality work and the likeliness of that happening improves with any help our customers can give. 

A Disorganized Mess Makes My Job Harder

Many customers wonder if they should clean their homes before a professional cleaner comes, and, frankly, it’s up to you. It is true that a tidier space makes it easier for us to do the job we’ve come to do, but it is never expected.

Because we are charged hourly, we want to focus on what you’re paying us to do. If you have time to put objects in their respective places, such as toys in the toy bin and dirty clothes in the hamper, then this will help us to focus on what we need to get done. We are qualified to organize your closet but if we’re not at your apartment to do that, then you shouldn’t expect it to be done.

Every little thing that you can do to help us, helps immensely. For example, if you soak dirty dishes and keep them outside of the sink, it helps us clean them up quicker and gives us additional time to get more work done.

Removing any excess clutter is the key to a having a clean house. If there is a lot of mess when I arrive, then it will be harder to do any serious deep cleaning, especially in the areas you hate to do yourself—like the base of the toilet and the gunk in your shower.

First Class Cleaning asks their customers to take a few minutes the night before we come to pick up extraneous clothing, toys and other household items. It is not required nor expected, but it is nice and always appreciated.

Harsh Cleaners Aren’t Required to Get the Job Done 

This might be common knowledge, but for readers that might not know: harsh cleaners are never necessary to clean your home.

To clean a home effectively, many people might assume that bleach and cleaners with harsh chemicals are required to kill all of the bacteria and grime in their households, but this is entirely false. For every bleach and hazardous cleaner out there, there is an eco-friendly alternative available that is just as effective.

Many common household cleaners contain chemicals and carcinogens that negatively affect humans’ health and the environment around us. First Class Cleaning cares about your family’s well being and is determined to make your home and office a clean and healthy place to be. That is why we only use Method Cleaning Products, which are organic and non-toxic cleaners that effectively clean every home and office.

The products that we use are made of naturally derived ingredients that absorb dirt rather than chemically degrading it. It is not necessary to rinse surfaces after using Method Cleaning Products because all of them are green and non-toxic. Method products are great for removing substances from your home that trigger allergies and asthma, such as pet dander and dust.

First Class Cleaning provides all of the necessary cleaners to their clients for an additional cost; however if you have your own cleaning equipment that you would like us to use, we would be happy to use it at no additional cost.

Looks Are Deceiving

We would like to let you in on a little secret…

Just because you see a big, beautiful and grand home, does not mean it is clean!

There are many homes, apartments, offices and rooms that appear tidy and put together but you could lift an inch of dust off each surface with one finger.

Also, it is important to keep in mind that dirt builds up and bacteria festers. It is beneficial for your heath and well being to have your home deep cleaned every once in a while to make sure that it is a healthy place to live.

Trust Me, I Do This For A Living

First Class Cleaning combines hourly wages with bonus programs to ensure that their employees are well taken care of. We screen all of our professional cleaners carefully and train them meticulously. As our customer, you can have the highest confidence and trust in our housekeepers and know that they will take care of you and your home.

If you are worried about valuables in your home, then put them away and instruct us not to touch them. A closed door or drawer is your signal to us to not clean that area.

If you want to make sure that I’m doing the best job I can do, then check the hard to reach places. Look at the base of the toilet or the tops of cabinets and the fridge—if they are spotless then you know that I didn’t miss a spot.
