Are you considering having a cleaning person come in to help you take care of your home’s cleanliness? Whether your house is large or small, the task of making sure it is spotless and in order can take more time than you’re willing to invest.
Once you’ve made the leap and hired a cleaning person to take the load off, what should you do to get ready? Continue reading this article and we’ll share helpful tips for getting your house ready for the house cleaning help.
1. Prepare Your Bed/Bedding
If your bedding doesn’t need to be washed then it’s time to make your bed. Don’t leave your bed unmade because that’s not likely to be on the list of things your cleaning person is supposed to do. More on that later.
If you do need your bedding washed then you should set where it is easy to find so it can be cleaned. If you do have an arrangement for your house cleaner to make your bed, put your linens out where it is easy for them to find them.
2. Clean Off the Counters
You don’t want your house cleaner trying to figure out where you want all of the things on your kitchen and bathroom counter. Have a place for everything and put everything in its place before the cleaning lady (or man) comes.
Even toothbrush holders and decor that you usually leave out on the counters should be put up so it is easy for your cleaner to take care of the counters without obstruction.
3. No Food & Dishes Mess
It’s not a good idea to leave food out in the first place but leaving it out when your house cleaner is coming is even worse. You’re paying your cleaning person to clean your house, not put up your food or throw away half-eaten pizza.
4. Clutter Be Gone
Look around the room and see what clutter has accumulated. It’s easy to throw this here and throw that there but picking up clutter in your room will help your cleaner get done with their job much faster.
Clutter includes clothes and blankets so pick them up and put them away neatly before cleaning day.
5. Communication Is Key
Understanding what your cleaning person does and doesn’t do before you hire them is important. If either of you has a misunderstanding of responsibilities, it might not be a good match.
Make a list of the things you want to be done and talk it over with your cleaning person to see if your vision is in alignment.
