Decide who to hire
Wherever you hire a cleaner, it’s important to make sure that you’re comfortable with them and you know what you’re getting for your money. It can be helpful to talk to them beforehand, and you should feel free to ask lots of questions. You may even want to ask for references from previous customers.
With Handy, it’s easy to find a local cleaning professional in your area. All of the cleaners on the Handy app are experienced and background checked, and you can read reviews from previous customers to learn more about them.
Tell them what you want cleaned
When the cleaner comes, make sure you talk about what you want cleaned. You can walk them through your home and point out anything that requires special attention. If this is your first time hiring a cleaner and you’re not sure what is typical, you can also ask the cleaner what they consider part of a standard cleaning.
