Residential Cleaning Services New York

Before you hire a maid service for your home in New York, there are a few things to consider.  While New York can offer huge amount of selection when it comes to residential cleaning service providers, make sure the one you hire specifically meets your needs.

First of all, it’s important to understand what a house cleaning service does and doesn’t do.  Most house cleaning service providers do not include any type of lawn maintenance or landscaping in their services. They also won’t provide power washing services of things like decking and driveways.  In general, a house cleaning service will do just about any type of domestic task inside the home you can imagine.

Do you live with a particularly messy teenager?  Or, maybe you acquired a foreclosed home that is filthy.  What’s known as a “deep cleaning” may be in order.  This involves the most thorough cleaning of the entire home.  Nooks, crannies, and every surface possible is scrubbed and disinfected until it’s sparkling.

Bathrooms and kitchens also provide plenty of places to be cleaned.  Scrubbing appliances and fixtures until they look new, cleaning refrigerators inside and out, even oven cleanings can be arranged by some house cleaning services.

Once you’ve decided specifically what you expect from your cleaning service provider, you should look into the company’s hiring process.  How are their employees screened?  How will the company respond if your personal property is damaged while they are there?  How are your things protected?  Some cleaning companies don’t require you to be home at the time of your cleaning.  So, how is your key or alarm system handled?  Who has access to that information?  Check reviews from customers closely for any complaints of theft or excess damage, and don’t hesitate to ask the company you’re considering about them if there are any.  Also, protect yourself by ensuring you hire a company that’s insured, and provides their workers with workman’s compensation.  That way, in the unlikely event a maid is hurt in your home you will be better protected.

Something else to think about is what type of cleaning products are they using?  Do you have a child with allergies or asthma?  In that case, you should avoid companies using toxic chemicals to get the job done.  Businesses like 1st Class Cleaning only use green products made by a company called Method.  The cleaning products they use absorb dirt naturally, rather than chemically eliminating it.  Method products are also biodegradable and don’t pollute the rivers, streams and oceans they may eventually end up in.  They are also safe for homes with pets and surfaces that have been cleaned with their products don’t need to be rinsed after cleaning.

Finally, how does the service fit into your budget?  Are they offering super low prices to lure you in?  Again, check the company’s reviews to try and discover if the quality of their work is in line with their prices.

It’s important to consider specifically what you may want to get from a house cleaning service in order to hire one you will be happy with.  Decide what you would like, then call a reputable service, like 1st Class Cleaning.  They can easily meet the needs of your home, family and budget.
