Domestic Cleaning Services
Cleaning - is it a chore?
Maybe you love it, or haven't got time with a busy life and work schedule? No matter, a clean home is a well-run home and makes you feel better.
In these challenging times keeping your home clean is essential. Not only do we have new viruses to contend with but also the dust, pollutants and pollen which affect not only the adults but also the children of today. Undoubtedly a clean home is better than an inhaler!
In this fast-moving age, why not contract it out? It's certainly possible, but your grandmother might chastise you, and it may be a tug on the budget! Whichever way you look at it, contracting out the cleaning can be value for money.
Contracting out some of your domestic tasks makes sense. Not only does it free up your time to follow recreational pursuits, but also allows you to spend more time with your family, chill or relax and put your feet up after a hard day!
Many households find the cleaner's forthcoming visit creates a 'discipline point '- a focus and impetus for the family to prepare for the cleaner's arrival!
What can you expect your cleaner to do?
In essence relieve you of a plethora of domestic tasks hoovering, dusting, floor washing, bathroom cleaning, tidying the kitchen, making the beds, the list is endless as are the jobs around your home.
So, you haven't time to be there!
With a well-briefed cleaner and a good company, you shouldn't need to be there. A reputable company will happily hold your keys, operate your alarm system, and give you the assurances you require. Alternatively, keys can be left in a key box if only for the day that the cleaner visits. If you want to know who's been in, give the cleaner an exclusive alarm code or use a webcam or one of the door entry' eyes' such as Amazon's Ring system or internal webcams (from £35). They can record whose been in, record entry, exit times, what the entrant did, and prevent the cleaner 'stealing' time or even worse attacking your wine fridge!
There's a myriad of cleaning models, including the companies who send a troop to each house, sweeping down like a whirlwind to go through each room. Great for the short interruption, not so good for the bits they missed in their eagerness to get out ASAP or for not knowing the property. Also, good because they often charge a fixed price and are maybe only in your hair for 20 minutes or so. Then there is whomever the company can get hold of to do the job – you spend time explaining what needs doing, are not sure who's been in your home, and the standards vary on each occasion.
In any given area there are always cleaners offering to do a cheap job for cash. Holiday absences may be an unmanageable inconvenience! Many of the overseas workers tend to go 'home' for long periods to stay with family.
Cash cleaners may not be so cheap!
Cash cleaners can come with many risks to you and your pocket. Particularly after we have cast ourselves entirely away from the European Union, you may find that your cleaner has no rights to stay in the UK, let alone no right to work within these lands.
You can be sent to jail for up to five years and receive an unlimited fine if you know or should have known that you employed someone who doesn't have the right to work in the UK!
And, it doesn't stop there, HMRC could consider that you've hired the worker and may come after you for the unpaid National Insurance and Income Tax. In the longer term, you are also not doing any favours for the worker. They may miss out on making sufficient NI payments to qualify for a state pension! The Coronavirus pandemic has also highlighted that those not on the DWP's or HMRC's radar will suffer badly when the chips are down with no access to benefits or grants!
