We know that there are always questions you’ve wanted to ask your house cleaner, but haven’t yet. As an established cleaning company in Colorado Springs, Greenclean is committed to making it as easy as possible to get your home in perfect condition. We come across many questions when it comes to your maid service and wanted to share the most commonly asked questions:
You don’t need to clean before we get there:
We all feel the need to pick up a bit before we have company. Some people feel especially motivated right before their maid arrives. We truly understand your perspective. This person is about to see some of your most cluttered and dirty things, like messy desks and even toilets. Try not to feel insecure about the way your home looks. We are trained and paid to handle even the messiest of things. Trust us- we have seen it all. That’s what we are here for!
Don’t be shy:
It can be hard to discuss habits that you’re insecure about. Just remember that you will get more out of your cleaning if you tell your maid what things you tend to neglect. Whether that be your bathroom rarely gets cleaned, you hate dusting, or you don’t own a working vacuum. Be up front about the things you really dislike doing or the things that need attention every single time. We can better prioritize our time at your home, which saves you stress and money.
Be practical and honest:
When there is the possibility of someone else cleaning for you, make the most of it. With that being said, it always helps to be honest about your budget. Once we know your priorities and your budget, we can help you build a balanced and individualized cleaning. Try to keep that channel of communication open. We understand that there are times your budget might get a little tighter than usual and you need to scale back. You may have company coming or leaving and are hoping for a little extra. Many clients aren’t home when we clean, so reach out if there is a change. A simple note about a changed task or a slight adjustment in time is fine. If it’s a big change, please send an email or call your maid to express your updated needs. We are always happy to make adjustments to assure that you are happy with the service you receive.
You are never in our way:
Sometimes clients feel that they have to leave to stay “out of the way”. We are masters of movement. We can easily move around you and clean other areas so we are not in your way. Try to remember we are not your guest, we work for you. So be comfortable, don’t change your plans because we are there. Due to the fact that we use all natural products, that are completely nontoxic, it will never smell chemically; but it can occasionally take extra time to soak. It’s always easy for us to get that going and walk away to open up that space for you. You can truly put your feet up and enjoy the chance to relax. The last thing we want is for you to be nervous about how to behave around us. We are there for you, not the other way around!
This topic is frequently searched online and infrequently asked directly. So many clients are unsure of what to do about this touchy topic. We are not paid server wages. So, it is never expected as a part of our income. It does tend to be done more often than not, but it is absolutely not required. While we always appreciate it, it is truly not expected. Just do what you’re comfortable with. If you can’t or don’t want to, we are never disappointed. If you want to, only do what your budget allows, knowing that we truly appreciate it. It is never taken for granted. If you have questions about it, just ask.
