When you invite an outsider into your home, you do need to have a certain amount of distrust for them, simply because of the day and age that we live in. With so many people out there just waiting to steal our hard earned cash, out identities and even more, it makes sense to have an opinion of someone before you even have the chance to know them, and although this is unfortunate, you can never really be sure of just who you are dealing with.
When it comes to inviting a cleaner into your home to do the things that you just don’t have the time to do, you must remember that you can’t really judge them right from the very beginning of your relationship. By all means do your background research, but try not to make it obvious that their presence within your home is not entirely trusted; this just gives off a bad vibe, and is likely to result in them quitting before they have even started.
There are more than a few tips that you can use to ensure that you can trust your cleaner:
- If you are going to be using a cleaning company, make sure that you use one that is reputable and reliable. There are plenty of ways to do your research, and for the most part, the internet has become a very valuable resource. Look for reviews on the cleaning company and ask if they perform background searches on the staff that they hire. If they do not, it is probably wise to look elsewhere. They will more than likely ask for references before they hire anyone, of course, and you are well within your right to ask to have a peek at these before you choose to let anyone in your home.
- For the first few days that the cleaner is working within your home, ask lots of questions. They will be expecting this usually anyway, so you shouldn’t be too concerned about it. They will know that they are working in a complete stranger’s home, and they know how they would react to such a situation if someone they didn’t know, were in their houses, so feel free to ask as many questions as you wish – just try not to make them too personal.
- It is understandable, to both the cleaner, and the company that they work for, for you to want to be around for the first few days that they have started work in your home. You can explain to them exactly what it is that you want them to do, as well as getting a feel for them as a character. If you feel unsafe or unsure about anything, discuss this with the cleaning company, and if you have really bad vibes, you could always ask for a second opinion from your partner or a friend.
It does make sense that you would want to protect your biggest asset – your home, and in the case of hiring external people to work within it, there will always be a certain amount of risk. Of course, the more you educate yourself, the easier the process will be.
