Also, request a person-to-person meeting with a representative from the cleaning companies, including the person who will do the cleaning of your home or office. Find out how comfortable you would be with them during the interview as they will be cleaning your home or business. Find out the types of cleaning products they will use, especially if you have a family member or colleagues that are allergic to harsh chemicals.

This will offer you and your family protection if something gets lost or damaged or if anyone gets injured while on the cleaning job.
