There are cleaners, and then there are domestic angels who come into your home to remove grime of daily life and leave behind them a blissfully fresh home where you can relax. Whenever we recommend anyone we always look for the six qualities of a great cleaner.
A great cleaner loves what they do. They take pride in doing a job well, in learning their clients’ preferences, and in educating themselves about different materials and cleaning techniques so they can always provide the best solution. They are not “just” cleaners. They are cleaning masters.
A great cleaner is thorough. They don’t only clean the parts you can see, they clean in and under and around so you know there are no nasties lurking just out of sight, harbouring bacteria and creating smells. Your home doesn’t just look clean, it IS clean.
A great cleaner turns up on time every week. They always work to a consistently high standard so you can feel confident that when you return home after your cleaner has been that your house will be spotless. A top quality cleaner will have the same high standards after a year of cleaning a home as they do on the first visit.
A great cleaner is honest. They respect the responsibility you are giving them when you allow them to enter your home and do their utmost to ensure your trust never feels violated. They are also discreet. Your home is your private space so you won’t find them talking about your personal style or habits. A great cleaner is also open about what they can do with the time they have. They won’t lie to get a job only to let a client down.
A great cleaner can work hard for hours. Cleaning is physically tiring and clients with bookings at the end of the day deserve the same high standard of clean as those in the morning. Cleaning can also be mentally taxing. Each job has its own huge list of things to remember from how a client likes their cushions plumped, to whose dog has an allergy to a certain product.
A great cleaner is methodical. They know what they have to complete in their allocated time and they make sure they arrive with everything they need – including the right mindset – to get it all done without rushing or cutting corners.
These six qualities are what we look for in every Family Clean cleaner. What do you think – have we missed any out?
