The last thing you want to do before you leave one home to start another is clean out the old place. If you want your deposit back it must be done, so just throw on some tunes, and get to it.

However sometimes it’s way easier to hire a cleaning company to do that for you. The stress of packing and moving is enough to deal with, hiring someone else to do that part can help alleviate the burden and give you more time to take care of the move itself. Call for a free estimate from Galvan’s cleaning Service @ 815-540-4312.

If your place is just surface dirty and not damaged, how well you clean could be the difference between getting back your deposit money back or not. So here is a checklist of things not to forget as you prepare your home for its next inhabitants.

How to Clean Your House Before Moving Out.

Everywhere:
• Dust the ceiling fixtures.
• Dust all ledges.

9 Questions to Ask Before Hiring House Cleaners

There are countless ways in which homeowners can benefit from hiring house cleaners. Whether you have a hard time keeping up with chores or are looking to boost your home’s appeal to potential buyers, house cleaning services can help.

However, most communities have a wide array of options for cleaners and maid services. The question is, how do you find the best one for your needs (and your budget)?

We think it comes down to asking the right questions. Keep reading for the most important questions to ask cleaners before hiring them to tidy up your home.

1. Are You Licensed and Insured?

First and foremost, you need to make sure you hire a legitimate company. They need to have a professional business license through the state that allows them to legally operate and offer residential cleaning services. In most cases, house cleaning services aren’t required to have additional licenses or credentials.

However, you should ensure the company you hire to clean your home is adequately covered by insurance. At the very least, they should carry professional liability insurance. This policy will cover the costs to repair or replace anything that is accidentally damaged in your home during the course of their services.

2. How Much Cleaning Experience Do You Have?

Next, you might feel inclined to ask the house cleaners what experience they have in the industry. How long has the company been in business? What background in cleaning do the owners and employees have?

While it doesn’t hurt to hire new businesses, you might feel more comfortable working with cleaners that have several years of house cleaning experience. This is especially important if you have rare, unique, or expensive possessions you don’t want to be damaged. It might also behoove you to hire experienced cleaners if you’re trying to get a deposit back while moving out of a rental unit.

3. Do You Have a List of Referrals?

To find the best maid services, ask to see a list of referrals before hiring cleaners. You should also be able to find online customer reviews via their website and social media pages.

Regardless, you need to find out what other homeowners have to say about their house cleaning services. Do they recommend the house cleaners to other homeowners? We’re they satisfied with the company’s performance, rates, and professionalism?

Try to find a company with an overwhelming trend of positive customer reviews.

4. Do You Offer Any Additional Services?

Depending on your house cleaning needs, it might be a good idea to ask about additional services. For example, some house cleaners also offer organizing services.

This can be incredibly beneficial if your home has become cluttered and/or disorganized. A simple cleaning might not be enough to whip your house back into shape.

And what if you have some minor damages around the house that you don’t have the time, tools, or expertise to repair? Do the house cleaners offer handyman services? How nice would it be if you could find an all-in-one service provider?

5. What is Your Availability?

One of the most important questions to ask cleaners is how often they can clean your house and when they can do it. If you’re hiring a maid for recurring house cleaning services, how many times a month/week can they come by to tidy things up?

Just as importantly, when will the house cleaners be coming to your house? Will they come in the middle of the day while you’re at work?

What if you prefer to be home while the cleaners are in your house? Can they come by in the evening after you return home?

6. Do You Conduct Thorough Background Checks for Employees?

House cleaning and maid services are somewhat intimate. Essentially, you’re inviting people you don’t know to come to your house (most likely while you’re away) and clean your personal possessions. They’ll be in your house, around your pets, and possibly around your children.

Therefore, it’s absolutely vital to know you can trust the house cleaners you hire. Ask the company what types of background checks they complete before hiring employees. After all, you probably don’t want a convicted burglar in your house while no one’s home.

7. What About Logistics?

Next, ask the company about the logistics of hiring their house cleaning services. As noted earlier, find out when they will be at your house.

If they come to your home while you’re at work, how will they get in? Will they need a key to your home?

Additionally, do you need to do anything with any pets? For example, if you have a dog that stays inside while you’re at work, will he/she need to be secured in a different room or put outside on cleaning days?

8. What Are Your Rates?

One of the most important questions to ask cleaners is how much their services cost. House cleaning services can charge a wide variety of fees, based on what you need.

A one-time deep cleaning versus recurring cleaning services will carry different fees. Determine what you need and contact the local house cleaners to get their rates.

However, make sure you understand what those costs cover. For example, a less expensive cleaner might do a cursory cleanup of your home once a week that’s only skin deep. A more expensive cleaner might do a far better job.

Don’t resign to hiring cleaners just because they’re cheap. In most instances, you get what you pay for.

9. Do You Offer Customer Satisfaction Guarantees?

Finally, before hiring house cleaners, find out if their contract includes a customer satisfaction guarantee. Do they stand behind their services? What happens if you find a discrepancy?

Find out how they handle customer complaints. If a job wasn’t completed to your satisfaction, will they come back and make sure it’s done right?

Have you ever watched a professional house cleaner cleaning video online, and found satisfaction in the before and after shots of the house? That's because cleaning and decluttering are actually important for your mental health.

You may not have enough time to clean your house or give it the care it deserves. Leaving it to become messy, however, will impact how you feel when you get home.

This article will go through why hiring house cleaning services can be beneficial for you mentally, so make sure to stay tuned.

Negative Impacts of an Unclean Home

Having an unclean home is not only physically unhealthy, but it will impact your mental health as well. These are some ways that a messy home will be bad for you.

You Find it Harder to Think

When you are in a messy environment, your mind begins to reflect the state of your physical surroundings. This results in you being more unfocused, preventing you from thinking straight. If you happen to be working from home or need to go through cognitive tasks at home, this will be difficult to do when everything is cluttered.

You Feel Overwhelmed

Have you ever felt like you had a neverending to-do list? If your house is in a mess, this feeling is likely to be ever-present whenever you're at home. You will constantly remember how you still need to wash your dishes, rearrange your furniture, and more.

This can result in you feeling overwhelmed constantly.

Stay tuned for part 2 😊

Part 3 😊

Why You Need House Cleaning Services

Having a professional house cleaner can do wonders for your physical wellbeing and also your mental state. A cluttered house will result in you feeling more overwhelmed and unable to think straight.

On the other hand, having a clean house reduces stress levels, improves your productivity, gives you peace, boosts your confidence, and can help you sleep better.

I have available slots open in February and gift certificates available 😊

Positive Impacts of Hiring a Professional House Cleaner

A clean house goes a long way in decluttering your mind and your emotional state. These are a few benefits you can experience if you hire local house cleaning services.

Clean Houses Boost Your Mood

A clean house can reduce anxiety levels, stress, and also depression. Having a cluttered home drains and distracts you and messes up with the feng shui in your house. When you have a professional house cleaner to perform house cleaning services, the clean house will immediately signal to you that you are in a place of rest.

House Cleaning Services Can Improve Productivity at Home

During the pandemic, more people are working from home than ever before. This makes the maintenance and cleaning of houses even more important, since a tidy house will be key to staying productive.

Have you ever been working, and find yourself getting distracted by the pile of laundry sitting at the corner of your room? Or the dishes that clutter your sink? This is because an unclean house will send off a signal that you have more to do other than work, and this will prevent you from staying focused.

This is where hiring a professional home cleaner can help. Don't know where to find a professional cleaner? Start by searching on the Internet for house cleaning services near me. If you find the right service, you won't have to lift a finger to achieve a clean and tidy house. This way, you can stay focused on doing your work and experiencing increased productivity.

A Good-Smelling Home Can Give You Peace

Have you ever found that you can instantly destress or breathe a sigh of relief when you turn a diffuser on? The way your house smells can also impact your mental health. Having a thorough clean from the home cleaning service will get rid of any unpleasant, lingering smell in your house. Find a local professional by asking Google for home cleaning services near me.

You can then add the fragrance of aroma oils or scented candles to make the atmosphere feel even more welcoming.

Clean Houses Can Improve Your Social Confidence

Have you ever been worried about inviting guests to your home because of how it looks or smells? It's natural to feel that way. As social beings, we want people think highly of us. This means we want to make a good impression on others.

A dirty or messy house can reduce your social confidence and make you feel more insecure when inviting anyone over. It doesn't matter if they say they don't mind a dirty house--it will still impact how you think!

This is where getting home cleaning can be effective at improving your mental health. Even on the days when you are too busy and don't have time to clean yourself, you can still be assured that your house is in a good state.

A Clean Space Helps With Sleep

You've probably experienced going to bed, only to realize you still have chores to do. Or maybe you didn't make your bed in the morning, and now the bed feels dirty and messy and doesn't help your state of mind.

These problems, while they seem small, can impact your ability to fall asleep quickly. Your brain will subconsciously feel like there are more things you need to do, and will stay awake longer to try to figure things out.

On another note, going to sleep on a bed that you feel is unclean will make you more wary and unable to feel comfortable.

Here’s another product I recommend. Misty bowl cleaner removes rust and hard scaling water. Even those that say they’ve tried everything…. Give this a try you won’t be disappointed. It does stink, especially if it’s working and loosening those ugly spots. 4.50 a bottle too 😊.

01/08/2023

For those debating on how to tackle cleaning your oven I’m recommending this product by Chase Products. Made in the USA and actually made in IL 😮👍🏻. This is the only oven cleaner I use and have used in the last 15 years. Unlike others you do NOT have to warm your oven. Saving yourself time from the start! It dissolves grease and loosens baked on food quickly. As always wear a mask and gloves and use in a well ventilated room. Appropriately 5.00 a can 😊

Sprayway Glass Cleaner is my go cleaner for windows and mirrors. Using a lint free cloth or paper towels, spray and wipe. Streak free every time. Great for finishing and giving a streak free shine on faucets and stove tops too. Less than 3.00 a can.

It can get cleaned!!!

I just need to post this... My name is Deb Muzzillo and I own The Twisted Tulip, Ltd. in Machesney Park, IL. Karon and Robert of Galvan's Cleaning Services have been maintaining my venue for the past three months. EVERYTHING I have asked them to do has been done not only to my expectations, but above and beyond each and every time they are in my facility. They have been on time, organized and extremely cordial to my guests and vendors. I do not need to worry about them being late, not showing up or doing what needs to be done. Today, I saw Robert picking up games that were left out in the back patio area which I was planning on doing. Again, above and beyond. I cannot express how wonderful it is to not have to worry about whether or not my facility is presentable for each and every event, (sometimes back to back). Peace of mind is priceless. Please give these folks a call. They are extremely affordable and worth every penny.
