Lately I’ve noticed a lot of questions from other cleaning business owners regarding hiring reliable and dependable cleaners. Hiring cleaners isn’t as easy as you would expect it to be, yet it’s one of the most important things you can do for your business. Obviously you need cleaners to be able to operate the business, but you don’t want just any old cleaners. You want reliable, dependable, high quality cleaners. My friends over at Smart Start Staffing have written up a guide on how to hire cleaners. It’s the ultimate guide and should lay out everything you need to get started on the hiring process. If you don’t want to do it on your own, they offer a service where you can outsource your hiring to them and they’ll take care of everything from getting applicants, screening, interviewing and scheduling a test clean.
Here’s an outline of the steps they use and if you check out their blog post you can see the details and read up more there!
