TLC House Cleaning
I love this service so much I'm posting kudos for them on several search engines! I have been through all the big name housekeeping services and have been disappointed by each one of them (not to mention their prices). I am happy to say that when a new housekeeper cancelled on me at the last minute my husband called TLC. From the moment he spoke with her on the phone Jonte was pleasant, courteous and professional. Her and her assistant's cleaning was not only top-notch (got into every nook and cranny!) but also affordably priced. My home sparkled and smelled WONDERFUL when they departed (a mere 2 hours and 45 minuntes later). I am happy to say we have found our new monthly housekeeping service!
Tips & Advices
Many services offer long-term contracts that include regularly scheduled cleanings. These contracts sometimes, but do not always, result in discounted prices. Most cleaning services offer discounts in exchange for customer referrals.
Homeowners should review their cleaning service's damage/breakage policy. Some businesses compensate for damaged items, while others do not.
Not always. Before hiring a cleaning service, homeowners should confirm the company verifies its employees' identities and performs background checks. Those planning to hire a self-employed cleaner rather than go through a business should inquire about background check options available from their state's attorney general.
  • The annual costs. Weekly services quickly add up, and homeowners may need to pay additional taxes if they choose a self-employed cleaner.
  • Language barriers and miscommunications. Some professional cleaners might speak English as a second language .
  • Background checks and employment verification. Homeowners can be held liable if they employ a person not legally permitted to work in the U.S.
Some services charge more for pets while others do not. Regardless, homeowners should keep in mind that any pet-related cleaning, such as emptying a litter box, adds to the amount of time the service charges for.
