Fall is here, and the kids are back in school. There are a lot of stay-at-home moms that enter the workforce every fall when their kids are old enough to attend school. Whether they find they’re in need of hiring house cleaners to keep up with their children’s after-school messes or they want to have a stable part-time house-cleaning job, the house cleaning industry is on the rise.
House cleaners are no longer for the wealthy or just for commercial office spaces. Today, house cleaning services are affordable, but to keep a good clientele, you’ll want to focus on hiring the best house cleaners.
Here are some great, basic interview questions when hiring house cleaners:
- How long have you been cleaning houses?
- How many homes do you currently clean?
- Do you have any references?
- Will you supply your own cleaning supplies or will you use the ones we supply?
- Would you be willing to do a trial period of two to three cleanings so we can review your work?
Be upfront about the hourly salary you offer and detail your expectations for the position. If some people want their laundry cleaned, including sheets, towels, clothing, etc., make sure to offer your housekeepers more money for these tasks.
Additionally, make sure to get a background check on applicants before hiring them. Remember that you are responsible for placing people in your clients’ homes.
