Brilliant Results: How to choose a cleaning service
By: Angela Abina Last Updated: March 13, 2018

Stress-free homes that feel like a haven almost always have one thing in common: they’re decluttered, and clean. But it’s not always easy to keep them that way. Let’s face it - life happens. It can be daunting to think of inviting people into your home to help. Before picking a cleaning agency, consider these tips from Brilliant Results Cleaning Service:


  • Pick a company that is fully insured, offers a quality guarantee, offers flat rate pricing, and doesn’t necessarily require a contract. This is your home, and you should have a say when cleaning begins and ends.
  • Ask the company how many people will be at your home at any given time. Ideally, for a single family home, you’ll want a team of 2-3 cleaners so your home is getting spotless, affordably.
  • Inquire about the staff. Are they professionally trained by the company? Do they wear uniforms or have a dress code for their profession? Do they attend ongoing training?
  • Inquire up front what is included in the services you are receiving, and be very clear about expectations. Ask for a detailed cleaning checklist.
  • The best cleaning companies provide all cleaning supplies and should not ask to dip into your personal cleaning supply stash.
  • Ask about the company’s security policy. How to they treat and store your keys and security codes?
  • Go with a company that offers flexible scheduling. You are busy and your time is valuable. Maybe you have a last-minute need, or house guests coming to visit sooner than you thought. A customer-friendly agency will work with your busy schedule.
  • Be cautious of companies that only accept cash. Even if you choose to pay in cash, you should have the option to pay via credit card if desired.
