Questions and answers
- What types of jobs are the most common?
Basic cleaning, as well as deep cleanings are the most common cleans people look for when hiring a house cleaner.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
The one thing that I would like customers to know about Cleaning, is that it at times can be VERY hard work and physically demanding. It's not all just dusting tables and cleaning kitchen counter tops. Some clients are VERY picky, and I try my best to meet every client's needs.
I've also learned that as hard as i do work, I can't and won't always be able to please everyone. I just always tell people I do the BEST job that I can with what supplies that I have.
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
I specialize in household cleaning services. I've cleaned: apartments, condos, and houses. My main focus when cleaning is: basic cleaning, deep cleaning, and organizing. I've also done other things such as: basic gardening and closet organizing.
- How did you get started?
I got started in 2010, after being unemployed for over 6 months, I decided to give cleaning a try. I started at working at 2 hotels in Hampton Beach, NH, and from there, I worked my way towards cleaning independently. When I came back to Boston in 2010, I started cleaning my friend's apt, and from there, she taught me the skills necessary to be able to not just effectively clean her home, but other homes as well.
Being in college and looking for a semi-permenant part time job, cleaning has been my ONLY source of the meaning "to be able to get by". Cleaning has helped me get by w/the basics while looking for work.
- What brands or products do you work with?
Products that I use for my cleans include: Mrs. Meyer's Organic All-Purpose house-cleaner, Windex All-Purpose Housecleaner, Pledge Dust and Allergen Spray, as well as Mr. Clean Magic Eraser pads.
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
Clients should ask you how much experience you have in the field, and whether or not you're bonded. For financial reasons right now, I'm not bonded, but anytime a customer asks, I always give an honest answer. Customers should also always ask if you have a website and if you have professional referrals available.
- What are the most frequent questions you get from customers? What are the answers?
What's your availability?
Answer: Right my availability is flexible, except for when I have classes on fridays.
What is your rate?
Answer: My current rate is between $20-$22/hour--DEPENDING ON WHERE CLIENT IS LOCATED!
Are you available for last minute cleans?
Answer: Last minute cleans depend on the day, and whether or not I have other clientele to serve.
What's your time average for a clean?
Answer: My average time to do a clean is 2 1/2-3 hours.
- How many projects do you average in a year?
Week to week is different. Some weeks I get cleans, and some weeks I don't. It depends on my current clients that need me on a weekly/bi-weekly basis, and if new clients emerge that are interested in my services.
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
Check out this AWESOME article I found on Readers Digest...it talks about some things that us housekeepers don't always tell you the client...hey, KNOWLEDGE=POWER :D
- Tell us something customers may not know about you.
One day I would like to be working in the Journalism field writing for a newspaper or a magazine, but I primarily would like to work in radio. I love music.
- What certifications or professional affiliations do you have?
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
I give my business card, and when I have these available, I also give out a matching thank you card to thank my customers for hiring me to make their home TIDY N FRESH!
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
Look and research for cleaners that have a reasonable fair price that fits within your budget. Also look for cleaners that have experience cleaning, at least 6+ months for starters.
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
I have 2 regular clients who I have maintained, one for the last year, and the second one for the last 2 years. Being able to keep these clients on a regular basis, makes me proud because they appreciate the hard work I put in and I also make them happy by the work I do.
