Some maids are live in help, which is typically a lot more expensive than hiring a service to clean on scheduled visits. Depending on the type of service, the rates will vary. Whatever service we go with must only hire documented workers that do not have a criminal record. It is important to ask about their screening process before utilizing any service.
Before hiring a maid service, we should first have a clear understanding of our cleaning needs. If there are particular cleaning responsibilities that we cannot at all seem to manage, then this needs to be communicated to the service. If there are certain tasks that we are willing to do, this must also be disclosed. Any specialized cleaning such as steaming the drapes or finishing the silverware will also have to be mentioned to the service, so this can be included in our service contract.
A good way to go about hiring a service is the make a comprehensive list of everything we want the maid service to handle. The more complete the list, the better our service will be. Once this is done, then it is time to find the appropriate service. Professionalism and security will be our major concerns. We want to make sure their workers do excellent work and that they are all bonded and screened. A full background check should be done on all of the maids.
We will also need to determine the cleaning schedule and frequency of service we require. If we need daily service that is very comprehensive, our rates will be much higher than if we only needed weekly basic service. This should all be discussed with the maid service. Many will offer additional discounts depending on the level of service required. A lot of services also offer individual packages for their domestic helper in Singapore.
