How to prepare for your maid

05 Nov 2018

Hiring a professional maid service is an excellent way of saving time in your busy schedule and maintaining a clean home. After negotiating with your maid service and arranging for a visit, there are certain steps you should take in preparation for the maid’s visit.

1. Remove clutter

Just because the maid is coming to clean doesn’t mean that your home should be a jungle. Try to remove clutter that would obstruct the maid’s work so he/she can do a better job. For example, place your piles of clothes in laundry baskets, keep children’s toys in one place, and gather all dirty dishes in the sink. However, if you’d like your housekeeper to tidy up for you that’s fine too, at Maid in Sydney we can take care of most of your household chores.

2. Keep your pets away from the cleaning area

When your maid arrives, try to keep your active furry companions under control. It can be quite inconvenient to have your floor mopped only for your dog to spill liquids all over it. Keep your pets in a separate room as the maid cleans your home.

3. Have any cleaning supplies readily available

If you wish to have your maid use certain cleaning supplies, have them readily available. Keep a pair of gloves within easy reach, and the required cleaning agents where they can be easily accessed for use. This will make it easier for your maid to clean various parts of the home, from the kitchen to the bathroom, according to your specific instructions.

4. Stick around if it’s the initial visit

If your maid is coming over for the first time, it’s always best to stick around and keep an eye on how they’re carrying out their duties. This will make it easier for you to make corrections as necessary and to explain to him/her how you would prefer your cleaning to be done.

After the initial visit, your maid will have a good idea about your preferences and they’ll be able to work independently.
