Should You Clean Before Your Scheduled House Cleaning?

on May 4, 2018

Many homeowners find themselves wondering whether they should clean their house before the cleaning company comes or not. If this is you, take a moment to ask yourself a few questions. Why do you want to clean prior to your scheduled house cleaning? Are you worried they’ll think you’re a messy person? Do you think you need to help them by picking up a bit? Take some time to figure out why you think it’s necessary to clean your house before a scheduled cleaning. There are no right or wrong answers here. But in order to understand if it’s necessary first, you’ll need to understand why you feel compelled to do it. 

It’s necessary to clean your house before a scheduled cleaning if…

The chore you need to get done isn’t in your contract

When it comes to cleaning services there’s array of service to choose from. You get to decide what’s in your cleaning service contract and what’s not. If the chore you need to complete isn’t in your service contract then you might want to tackle that before the maid or cleaner arrives.

You need to put away any nic nacks for dusting

If there’s anything of value that you need to put away to prevent it from getting broken, you’ll want to do that before the cleaning service arrives. This could be anything from nic nacks on the shelf to anything you don’t want your cleaner to touch.

The house needs a basic tidying up

For a lot of household owners, the number one reason they feel compelled to clean before their cleaner arrives is that their house needs a bit of tidying up. Even though your house is about to get cleaned the clutter may need a bit of extra attention. If you need to free up some space or put things away then we recommend doing it before the professionals get there.


It’s not necessary to clean your house before a scheduled cleaning if…

The cleaning company is going to do that task for you

If your service contract provides you with a bathroom cleaning service, there’s no need to clean the bathroom beforehand. In order for you to get a full value for your money, you’ll want to allow them to do their job accordingly to the contract you signed when you hired them. Otherwise, you’re just doing the work for them and you won’t be able to reap the full benefits of a house cleaning service.

You don’t need to put anything away

Don’t have anything that needs to be put out of sight out of mind? Then you don’t need to worry about moving things around for the convenience of your cleaning service. It’s important to remember that you are paying for a service. To ensure you get the best experience it’s best to stop worrying and let the professionals take care of the house.

The house doesn’t need tidying up

When it comes to tidying up the house before a cleaning, it’s not completely necessary. Professional house cleaners and maid services do everything they can to help you tidy up while they work. They may even fold the blankets up on the couch and fluff your pillows for you.
