Finding The Right Long Island Cleaning Service.

Time is precious and there never seems to be enough of it. But, saving you time or money is not the only reason to hire a cleaning service. In fact, the most important reason is health. Indoor air quality and household cleanliness is essential to our families' health. The home environment is crucial to those with asthma, allergies and chemical sensitivities and it helps prevent colds and viruses for everyone.

With that in mind, it is just as important to hire the right cleaning service. Here's how:

 

Ask If They Are Incorporated: On Long Island, there are so many house cleaning operations out there. Most of them are fly by night outfits. They may offer you a low price but when it comes down to it, you become an employer who is responsible for keeping records, filing income taxes, paying into the Social Security, Disability and Unemployment funds. If one of these employees gets hurt, YOU may be liable. When you do business with a cleaning company on Long Island, you have none of these headaches. Also, just the fact that your cleaning service has incorporated tells you that they mean business. They're in it for the long haul.

Request Proof Of Insurance: Every reputable cleaning company on Long Island will be happy to provide you with proof of insurance. It's just another example that they mean business and have the desire to protect your valuables just as much as they do their own employees.

Require References: A start up cleaning company won't have references. This is O.K. if the above two items are in place. If the answer to the first three questions is "No" Move on! Any Long Island cleaning service that has all three of these items in place is just average. Call some of the references to determine just how good of a cleaning company they really are.

Go Over Their Methods: Any Long Island cleaning company that really cares about the quality of their work will be not just happy but enthusiastic to explain to you their methods of cleaning. This is what sets the quality cleaning companies out ahead of the pack. We've written an 'Employee Guide' so that our team members can follow our strict procedure on house cleaning from top to bottom and back to front. Ask us about it!

Inquire About The Products: The products they use should be healthy to use around your loved ones. Green Seal Certification requires that cleaning products undergo rigorous testing for toxicity. They must not only be safe for the people who use them but also for the environment. HEPA filtration removes all particles larger than .30 microns. This includes dust and dander but also and most importantly includes ALL bacteria, mold, fungi and several virus nuclei. Micro Fiber Cloths don't just pick up dirt and grime, they absorb it deep into the fibers.

Get The MSDS: The Material Safety Data Sheet gives you the most detailed analysis of the cleaning agents used in your home. We'll be posting up a page on how to read it in the near future, but for now, ask for it. A cleaning company that truly cares about the safety of their employees will have them available

If you've gotten this far with your prospective cleaning company and you're happy with the results, I'd say, GO FOR IT! There are a few companies out there who really care about the quality of their work. They take the time to do the research and choose the safest cleaners out there. They also take the time to hand pick and train their employees. You may spend a little more for these cleaning services but the money is well spent. After all, can you really put a price on good health? If you're still not entirely sold on the company you've called, ask them for a trial run. The bathroom is a good place to start, since it's usually the most time consuming part of the house to clean. This should give you a better feel about the quality of service.


    Good Luck and Best Regards!
