Hiring a professional cleaner is a great way to save time and energy, However, some general decluttering and preparation are helpful before the cleaners arrive so they can effectively clean your home! This will help to ensure that the cleaners can focus on their tasks and use their time efficiently. Here are a few recommended tasks to do before the cleaners arrive:
Typically, homeowners are responsible for moving personal items out of the way and providing access to the areas that will be cleaned. This will make it easier for the cleaners to move around and clean all the areas of your home. This includes picking up clutter like dirty laundry, toys, and papers from floors, countertops, tables, and desks. If there is too much clutter, it will be harder for the cleaners to move around and deep clean properly.
Wash dirty dishes
Cleaners aren’t usually hired to wash dishes or get rid of food waste, so it’s good practice to have your dishes cleaned and put away beforehand. Cleaning your own dirty dishes will allow your cleaners to focus on more important deep cleaning tasks and have easier access to your sink.
Make sure that all pets are out of the way and in a safe place. The cleaners will need to be able to move around freely without having to worry about your pet’s whereabouts. This will also prevent your pet from being accidentally stepped on or getting injured!
Before the cleaners are hired, it’s helpful to have a conversation about your cleaning needs and expectations, along with the services they offer. Understanding what the cleaning service does and doesn’t do is important in order to avoid any misunderstanding. This will help avoid any confusion about what is expected of both the cleaners and the homeowners.
Secure fragile or valuable items
Secure your fragile, personal, or valuable items that you do not want the cleaners to touch or tidy. However unlikely, accidents can still happen so it’s a good idea to put these items away before the cleaners arrive to avoid any costly accidents. It will give you peace of mind knowing that they’re safe, and it will save you a lot of headaches (and money) if something does happen to them.
