HOW TO CHOOSE A SERVICE
Finding a quality cleaning service can be both time-consuming and costly. With so many service providers in operation, ranging from franchised businesses to local providers of all sizes, it is difficult to identify a good quality cleaning service.
Avoid disastrous results and find a quality house cleaning service that will keep your home sparkling clean and give you peace of mind.
Protect Your Home from Un-Insured House Cleaners
How to Ensure Your House Cleaner is Insured. It's easy to get proof of insurance — simply ask the house cleaning service to have their insurance company fax or mail you a copy of their certificate of insurance.
The Certificate of Liability Insurance will list the company as the certificate holder. It will also list the name of the insurance broker, the insurance company and the name of the cleaning company that is insured.
A house cleaning company may offer a photocopy of their insurance policy as proof of insurance. Never accept this as there's no way for you to know whether the policy is current.
The policy could have been cancelled the day after it was issued. Without proof of insurance directly from the insurance company you could be paying the rate of a house cleaning company with insurance while unknowingly putting yourself at risk every time the house cleaner is on your property.
Every reputable cleaning company will be happy to provide proof of insurance. Enjoy peace of mind every time your home is cleaned. Choose a cleaning company that has insurance to protect you and your home in case of damage to your property and injury to the house cleaners while they are on your property.

For Your Protection

Will the work be paid by the hour or by the job? A good house cleaner will try to complete all the work requested and adjust the quality accordingly. Avoid getting a house cleaner that charges hourly and spends more time than necessary to complete the job.
