Is it important to go with a cleaning company that is insured and bonded?
The short answer is yes. We all want to save a bit of money, but going with an unexperienced individual that you found on Kijiji is not the way to go. When it comes to move-in/move-out cleaning, you do not want to cut any corners. You need to make sure the company you select is fully bonded and insured. This gives you peace of mind knowing that all your belongings and your (new or old) home is protected in the event of improper use of chemicals or unsafe handling of furniture. Remember, a cheap price means cheap work. There are many companies that insure their services, and you will always be thankful that you opted for them.
On top of being bonded and insured, you should make sure your cleaners have passed a clean background check. You need to be careful of the sorts of people you bring into your home or business.
