Hiring a Cleaner: Common Misconceptions

Lots of people have reservations about booking a cleaner before they take the plunge. It’s understandable – you’re letting someone into your home, and that takes some trust. We’d like to debunk some common misconceptions that exist around cleaning services.

Myth: Cleaners are just for posh people

These days cleaning services are accessible to people from all walks of life. It’s an affordable service that people often take advantage of while they’re at work earning their income. Hiring a cleaner means that when you return from a busy and tiring day at the office your evenings aren’t consumed with housework.

Myth: Only lazy people hire cleaners

Many of the time-poor people who hire a cleaner are the exact opposite of lazy – they’re working long hours every day, are active in their communities, or have their hands full caring for young children. Delegating to a cleaner is a way to reclaim family time and “me time” that would otherwise be consumed by domestic tasks.

Myth: A cleaner will steal from me

It is understandable to be wary when inviting a stranger into your home, and that’s why you should always book a cleaner from a company that vets their staff. TidyMe has a thorough screening process for cleaners that includes a background check and a quality test, then cleaners are rated by the customer after each clean to assure ongoing quality and trustworthiness.

Myth: I can do a better job myself

Professional cleaners are trained to be efficient and thorough at cleaning a home – and they get a lot of practice! Cleaning services with a public customer review system are accountable, so you know their staff will strive to attain perfection in their work. TidyMe cleaners have a checklist of cleaning tasks to fulfil in each house. If there are areas you’d like them to focus on you can always specify this in your online notes.
