Ross Pomerantz of North Atlanta Cleaning Services offers the following tips:

What 3 things should an apartment or home renter know BEFORE choosing a cleaning service?

  • What services does the cleaning service offer?
  • What kind of experience do the cleaners have?
  • How many people will be cleaning your apartment or rented home? 

What common mistakes do renters make when they  try to clean their home for themselves? 

The biggest thing we find is that people miss details like door sills, frames blinds, baseboards and window sills. Dust builds up which makes it more difficult to clean thoroughly later. The best thing to do is to dust regularly.

What tips can you give a renter about making their apartment / home cleaner?  

Do a top-to-bottom cleaning in every room and don’t forget to dust!

InsuranceHub adds the following suggestions:

  • Work on one room a day so that you don’t get overwhelmed.
  • Make it a family project so that everyone chips in together.
  • Remember that many hands make the load light.

What can you tell us about your business that would make someone want to use you for to clean their home?

  • We are fully licensed bonded and insured
  • We only use trained experienced cleaners
  • PLUS we offer no REZ cleaning (a green cleaning method where we clean with chemicals but wash all of it away leaving no residue) 
  • We guarantee our work to ensure your home is cleaned to your satisfaction 

Any SPECIALS to let our readers know about? We offer a 10% discount on our silver or gold deep cleaning packages which means you can save $36-56 on deep cleans.

cleaning tips for renters & homeowners

Jane Bush of VP Regal Maid Service offered the following cleaning service tips:

What 3 things should an apartment or home renter know BEFORE choosing a cleaning service?

Four things they should find out are:

These are the most crucial things, people do not realize how important they are!

We’ve also found a lot of people get frustrated with their cleaning service if they cannot communicate, English speaking maids are often asked for.

What common mistakes do renters make when they try to clean their home for themselves?

Common mistakes are that they just do not clean thoroughly enough, especially if they were not cleaning regularly. Baseboards, blinds, light fittings, ovens and fridges are the main culprits we’ve found.

Remember to dust, dust, dust!

What 3 tips can you give our renters about making their apartment / home cleaner?

Just be regular and keep on top of the cleaning and it won’t be so bad. Dust regularly, especially if you have animals!

Any nice stories or case studies to share?

We’ve cleaned some houses which have taken the best part of the day to get up to par, and the houses were not that big. Clumps of animal hair everywhere, thick dust, moldy showers, grimy kitchens.

You would be surprised at how some people live and how long it takes them before they finally realize they need a cleaning service to help them!

After we come out and get the house clean, a regular clean does not take that long and they love having their house shiny!

What can you tell us about your business that would make someone want to use you for to clean their home?

We are British owned and run, we love what we do. We like to come and give you an estimate in your home rather than over the phone as we like to get to know our clients and build a relationship with them rather than be a voice on the other end of the phone. Coming to your house and being shown around, we take notes on how you like things done, what products you like used and also this way we can give you a better estimate of the price.

We are licensed, bonded and insured and carry workers comp, our maids are background checked, they are all English speaking. The cleans are supervised which means one team always has a maid in charge and I come out to do spot checks to make sure everyone is cleaning up to the standard we trained them to. Our maids are a happy and friendly bunch!

If there’s any aspect of the clean you’re not happy with we ask you to tell us within 24 hours so we can come back and rectify it free of charge. It’s no good telling us a week later that some dusting was missed, dust settles almost immediately after you have dusted, especially in a dusty house!

Any SPECIALS to let them know about? If a customer books a regular clean with us we are offering $15 off the first clean and $10 off the next two cleans.

Next, we have a few Cleaning tips from Terre Alexander of 3 Kings Cleaning Services in Roswell, GA:

What common mistakes do renters make when they try to clean their home for themselves?

Some common mistake renters make when cleaning themselves are:

1. No Structure- Random cleaning methods.

  • Not completely cleaning areas, but only a portion of the room or area.
  • Bacteria and germs love areas that are undisturbed by your cleaning so they can multiply and build a strong environment.

2. Using strong chemicals without proper protection.

  • Many over the counter chemicals are not balanced with water to solution ratios set by the manufacturer when the consumer takes it into their homes.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when needed.

3. Letting tasks get behind.

  • We all get busy and sometimes we get distracted when we are in mid-task.
  • Often, these task get forgotten until there are literally PLIES of tasks that need to be done before Mom comes over!

In review, did you notice a common theme that ran through everyone’s answers?

First, only hire maid services or cleaning companies that are licensed, bonded and insured (Liability + workers comp).

In fact, this is so important that we suggest that you request proof of insurance to make sure that it is up to date.

Why should you care about this?

  • Simply put, if a cleaning worker comes into your home and slips and falls they can sue YOU for medical bills and hospital bills. (That is also why we suggest all of our clients that rent homes and apartments to invest in an affordable renters insurance policy. You will be pleasantly surprised how affordable it is.)
  • Do you want cleaning company employees in your home that steal from you? Insist on a cleaning agency that only uses BONDED employees.

Second, Clean and dust regularly.

Why should you care about this?

  • Pet hair, and dander cause allergies and asthma attacks. Your health and the health of your children is at risk.
  • Regularly cleaned apartments discourage pests and bugs!
  • Do you want your security deposit returned when you finally move out of your apartment?
  • Do you want a good recommendation from your previous landlord when you go to your new apartment? Clean regularly.
  • It saves you time and money. When you maintain your “clean” everyday it only takes a few minutes to “tidy” up. When you leave cleaning for “special occasions” it will take you hours to do. No wonder people hate it!

Are you looking for an Atlanta cleaning service?

Here are a few final tips:

  • Look for online reviews. Check Facebook, Google and Yelp to get started.
  • Are there any red flags raised in the reviews you read?
  • Talk to friends and family to see who they use to clean their apartment.
  • Call and check all references.
  • Demand proof of insurance (liability and workers comp)
  • Require that all workers are Bonded.

In conclusion, we hope you have found these tips on hiring an Atlanta house cleaning service, as well as for keeping your apartment clean helpful.
