Finding a reliable cleaner is a challenge! Remember the good old days when your mum could simply ask someone from the village? Ah, those were simpler times! But fear not, whether you need a London cleaner or one in Timbuktu, I’m here to help.  Read on to see how you can navigate the tricky terrain of finding a reliable cleaner without the village network. So, grab a cuppa, sit back, and let’s embark on this adventure together.

In this digital age, the key to finding a cleaner is at your fingertips, quite literally! Embrace the power of search engines, online platforms, and mobile apps. These virtual treasure troves are brimming with agencies and cleaners who are ready to whip your home into tip-top shape and our top tips are useful for commercial cleaning or domestic cleaning.

Reviews Are Your New Best Friends

Once you’ve entered the digital world, the first rule of thumb is to read reviews like a seasoned detective. Treat them as your trusty sidekick, helping you separate the cleaning superheroes from the wannabes and learn from the experiences of others who have ventured before you and discover agencies and cleaners who have proven their mettle.

Compare, Compare, Compare

As you browse through the plethora of cleaning profiles, it’s important to compare and contrast. Compare ethics, products used, rates, services offered, and availability. Look for cleaners who match your specific requirements and align with your ethics. After all, the goal is to find a reliable cleaner who will make your home sparkle and give you back time to do the things that really give you life and joy.

Fair Day’s Pay For a Fair Day’s Work

It’s so easy to make a decision based on price.  And actually, we think you really should!  Remember that the person you are inviting into your space will literally have the keys to your kingdom.  They will see you at your worst and your best.  They may be privy to family news before your next kin!  So, it makes sense to pay them accordingly.  Anything less than the Real Living Wage means that you are keeping someone on a poverty wage.  You really do get what you pay for and all of the security risks that an economically desperate person may bring along with them.

Ask for Recommendations for a Reliable Cleaner

While Mum’s village network may be out of reach, that doesn’t mean you can’t seek recommendations in the digital world. Tap into the power of social media, community forums, and online groups. Mumsnet or Next Door are two great places to start. Post a friendly enquiry, asking your online community for their recommendations. You’ll be surprised by the generosity of strangers who are willing to share their trusted cleaners’ details.

Trustworthiness Matters

When it comes to inviting someone into your home, trust is paramount. Ensure that any cleaner you consider has been thoroughly vetted. Seek out online platforms that have strict screening processes and verification procedures in place. Look for cleaners who have undergone background checks, reference checks, and maybe even a little extra training to ensure a top-notch cleaning experience.  This is where the security of a good cleaning agency comes into play, who will have done all of this leg work for you.

Test the Waters

In this challenging journey of finding a reliable cleaner sans the village network, don’t get overwhelmed, slow and steady wins the race.

Happy hunting, and may your floors forever shine!
