It can be difficult to find a reliable cleaning service. You are asking someone you don’t know to come into your home or business when you might not be there. This can be incredibly stressful and unnerving. Before you spend too much time searching through every advertisement and coupon in the mail, take a moment to find out more about your local cleaning services online.

There are a number of ways to look into cleaning services online. Sites like the Yellow Pages, Angie’s List, and Yelp! are all incredibly useful in finding reviews and customer experiences. These sites normally have a rating system based on customer reviews. This makes finding a trusted and highly rated company much easier. Look at the top rated three in your area and take a moment to read the reviews that have been posted by customers. Be careful though, some of the reviews may be written by the company themselves or one of their competitors. Take the reviews you find here with a grain of salt and they can be extremely helpful in finding a reliable cleaning service.
One of the places often overlooked when looking for local cleaning companies is Facebook. Posting to your friends that you are in the market for a cleaning service can lead you to a number of reliable sources. Your friends are also more likely to be honest about their experiences, both negative and positive.
If your direct Facebook friends don’t have any recommendations for you it’s time to open up to the greater Facebook community. Are there any local groups that you are a part of? Do any of them specialize in local businesses or sales? Posting to a local community group can quickly bring you a wide variety of recommendations and experiences. If you do not want to post to a group page you can even simply change the setting on your post from ‘friends only’ to ‘friends of friends’. You will be pleasantly surprised how many more people will see your post with such an easy change.

Beyond even sites designed for reviews and Facebook, there are still more options to finding reliable cleaning services online. Google a few local companies and see if they have Twitter accounts. It is common for current and past customers to follow a good (or terrible) company to comment on their tweets. By following them on Twitter you can quickly find out how they handle current and past customers in a public setting.
Once you begin exploring all of the resources available to you online you’ll find that it’s not difficult at all to find trust worthy and reliable cleaning services. Take some time to find a company that makes you feel safe and comfortable. That extra time you spend now will pay off in over the long term with all of the peace of mind you will have. A little research can put your mind at ease and help you find the best person to come into your home or office to keep things neat and clean.
