Cons – Pros – Price Differences and Why

Do you think to hire an Individual Cleaner or A Cleaning Company? This is a very big factor in the prices for a cleaning service.

Individual Cleaner: 

Hiring an individual cleaner has its benefits, and perhaps it is what is best for you.

These are some benefits of hiring an individual maid:

  • a work well done.
  • Available.
  • Affordable prices. (this is the biggest benefit you can get when you hire a maid that works on their own.)

Cons:

Most self-employed house cleaners and private maids who offer to clean your home or business are not insured or bonded.

This can puts you at major risk as a homeowner or business owner.

If the maids you hire break or damage anything in your house accidentally, they do not have the financial means to replace or repair your property — and they cannot be legally held responsible for any damage.

More importantly, if your maids get injured or hurt while cleaning your home, you are likely to be responsible for paying their medical bills.

Make sure the maid or house cleaner that you hired have general liability insurance so that your home is protected from any damage that may occur. An average of the cleaning service prices of a individual house cleaning or maid are between $12 to $20 per hour.

Cleaning Company:

Nancys Cleaning Services is a professional cleaning company that offers:

The prices of companies are usually higher due to the operation of the company.

They also usually guarantee the cleanliness and professionalism of the house cleaners and often perform background checks on their employees.

You may decide that the convenience and trust of working with a company is worth the cost. An average of the prices of the cleaning companies that are insured and legally established are between $30 to $80+ per hour per maid. (some franchises charges more)

Individual maids or house cleaner often charge less than cleaning service companies because regularly they don’t have as many expenses as a company.

Here are some tips to hire a good house cleaner or cleaning company:

  • Ask for referrals. Ask for referrals from friends who have used the same cleaning service over time.
  • Choose a company that’s bonded and insured. This protects you and your property in case of theft or damage.
  • Hire a licensed company. This means they are legally registered to operate as a business.
  • Ask for reviews. Look to current and former client reviews to let you know the cleaning company does great work.
  • Compare prices. A company that offers a wildly low price may not be operating legitimately.
  • Consider security. Some cleaning companies offer software’s that will notify all the process and the cleaner who is going to your home.
  • Read client reviews. Ask for reviews and follow up with references to make sure you’re choosing the right house cleaning service for you.

    im trying to start a cleaning business i was hoping if someone can help me with everything what i need for a business i know liability and workers comp ins, bank account, i got business name which im sending to sec of state of ohio end of month, time cards and cleaning supplies im getting each month till i have more than enough.

    any other ideas besides the lists of what i need

    1. Try Farmers they can give a hell of a deal of works man comp, and liability insurance, Bank go with Chase they will charge around $15 a month, for accounting try Xero will sync with any bank account, for payroll Adp will recommend there are some other you can get half of a price than App.

  2. You made a convincing point about how cleaning companies screen their employees. That is indeed a step in the right direction when ensuring the safety of the customer’s belongings. I will keep that in mind if I ever start needing office cleaning since mine is two train stations away from home so it’s not easily accessible on weekends when I am free to do chores.

    I like that you mention that when working with a cleaning company they generally offer a guarantee of cleanliness. My husband and I have been looking for a way to keep our home clean since we both work so much. I think we should look for a professional cleaning service to help us out.

    Thanks for the tips in hiring a residential house cleaning service. Next week, we’ll be throwing a huge party at my place and I invited my closest friends since I just got back from abroad. I’ll then make sure to read reviews and follow up with references to ensure I’m choosing the right house cleaning service. https://www.northstarpropertyservice.com/house-cleaning

    I like how you said that cleaning companies perform background checks on their employees so you don’t have to worry. This way you can trust the person that is cleaning your home. I wouldn’t want to hire someone who I couldn’t trust to enter my home and clean while I’m gone.

    As you mentioned, it is important to make sure that the cleaning company, or maid has general liability insurance to make sure both parties are covered if anything were to happen while they were in you home. My mother is about to have a surgery that is going to put her on bed rest for a month of so. I have considered getting a cleaning lady for her while she wont be able to do it. http://www.lindascleaning.ca/

  7. It was really helpful when you said to ask friends for referrals. My husband and I are wanting to find a house cleaning company because the new jobs that we recently started a couple of weeks ago have been keeping us busy and we can’t seem to find time to clean our home. We’ll make sure to keep this information in mind as we search for a house cleaning service to help us. https://classacleaning.com

  8. You made a good point that a cleaning company screens their employees, making it more reliable when it comes to professionalism. Because of my busy schedule at work, it’s becoming more and more difficult to find time to tidy up my house. Perhaps hiring a maid cleaning service would help me save a lot of time and give me more time to rest during the weekends.

    Thank you for assuring us that hiring a residential cleaning company is a safer alternative as they are insured, licensed while guaranteeing us that they will provide quality service. My wife is planning to house a soiree with her family and she would like to house to be spotless. I will encourage my wife to hire a cleaning service rather than having it cleaned herself as she can save time.
