The professionals you engage to do work on your home must and should show a proven track record of great quality work. A good question one may ask is how am i able to prove proficiency of a business I’ve found.

To prove how good a company is at what they do, look no further than their online presence and reputation. Anything over 3.5 stars in reviews and more than 5-6 reviews from places like Productreview, Yelp, Google + and Facebook can prove to a certain degree a companies proficiency at what they do. As an example this Sydney cleaning company has an awesome online presence.

Many companies in the home services industry will also show testimonials and examples of work they’ve completed. Don’t hesitate to ask for photos, most companies will be more than happy to provide them.

Ask to speak to some of their customers. Testimonials written by customers can provide a glimpse into the customer service ethic of the company you’re likely to be dealing with.

All this and more can help you choose which companies you’d like to engage for your professional home cleaning project.

Licenses and Insurance

Making sure the company you decide to work with is licensed and insured. Insurances protect your home, your liability and the businesses when performing work on your home.

If the business you solicit doesn’t have insurance, should something go wrong they may not be able to help with the rectification of whichever problem has occurred. This should be reason enough for you to turn the other direction and run.

Businesses with licenses and insurance not only prove that they’re professional but that they’re aware of their liability when entering your home. This isn’t the only reason you should select a company and we’ll reiterate other reasons below.
