Ask a Clean Person: Pre-Tenancy & End of Tenancy Deep Cleaning

I’ve been living in what is best described as a hippie/hipster commune. I was desperate not to be a homeless (yet loveable) tramp, so I moved in rather hastily a few months ago. My friends have been living there for nigh on four years, and to my knowledge, during all of these years, there hasn’t really been a deep clean (don’t even get me started on the state of the bathroom I was meant to use upon move-in)

A guide how to hire a house cleaning service with less headaches

Sometimes it is hard to decide which  cleaning service to choose for our homes. We offer you some useful tips how to make the proper choice and save you a couple of problems.

Advice № 1.

Consult with a professional service and don’t  hire just a single person if it is possible at all. Why? There are three reasons: (1) Liability, (2) Reliability, and (3) Effectiveness.

Liability: If you hire an individual, this will puts a lot of additional legal conditions and financial obligations on householders. Is this true? We will answer you yes. To hire an individual means you are now federally liable to collect, report and pay taxes to your new ’employee’. Furthermore, the 99%  of the cleaning made by individuals DO NOT carry appropriate general liability and worker’s compensation insurance for the worker. They may fall, hurt themselves, damage surfaces  or break items in your home and your homeowner insurance is 100% liable. Would you really risk the largest investment in your life to save money?

At our house, we have a system for required chores and paid chores that has been working pretty well, and I’m ready to add to it.

Like any system, our chore system needs tweaking every now and then. Here are my current “issues” to work through regarding chores:

Sami older (9 1/2) and ready to learn new tasks.
Alex is older (6) and ready to do more daily chores. Right now, I have him picking up dog poop once a week and helping clean the school room once a week, in addition to daily toy clean-up and laundry putting away. He’s ready for more.
Lougan (age 3 1/2) has been getting off easy, and I want to train him on chores now while he’s interested in “helping!”
