It is not that hard to hire a cleaner, especially if you live in London or another big city in the United Kingdom. Browse Airtasker or Gumtree and a long list of cleaning companies will pop up instantly. Self-employed or part of a contract company team, they will convince you that they will do everything for you. But can we believe these words?
How we could be sure that the cleaning service they provide is reliable and performed in the best way possible? We’ve asked the experts at Pure Blue Cleaning London which are the usual clean up tasks performed by their staff. They said that washing the dishes or vacuuming & mopping floors are such that there is almost nothing to do wrong, but what about washing an extremely stained carpet, or cleaning the grouts in the bathroom? In such cases, an experienced, trustworthy cleaner is a must!
Below are a few tips to consider before hiring a professional cleaner:
Prepare a list with all the work you need done around your property and make sure that the cleaner is ready to complete it according to your requirements. If he is a true professional, he will give you the final price in advance.

Usually a regular cleaning service is charged on an hourly basis. Prices vary from £10 up to £14 per hour, depending on how frequent the visits are.
Here are some example price rates:
All you need in order to find a reliable, skilled and qualified maid, is recommendations! Ask at least 2-3 friends of yours before hiring one. These might be your relatives, neighbours or even co-workers.
Keep in mind that you can always seek for compensations if the worker breaks something or damages your property in the working process.
