Qualities of a Great Cleaning Professional

What does it take to be a great cleaner? That’s actually a pretty great question! Unfortunately, It’s not quite as simple as just having a well-stocked cleaning cabinet and a can of Mr. Muscle at the ready. Luckily, we know a bit about cleaning (it’s kinda what we do!), so we’ve created a list of 8 qualities every great cleaner should have.

1. Consistency

You’ve just completed your first clean for a new customer and they’re thrilled with the results. That’s fantastic! But now you have to keep those standards up, in six months time, that one great clean isn’t going to mean much if your standards have slipped.

A great cleaner makes it their mission to be consistently brilliant week after week and month after month. After a while it can be tempting to get complacent and start cutting corners – but your customer will want you to leave their home predictably spotless every time and a great cleaner will live up to these expectations like clockwork.

2. Attentiveness

Attention to detail is hugely important to a cleaner, because as everybody knows, there can be a world of difference between something that looks clean and something that actually is clean (We’ll admit it, we’ve hidden mess away in a cupboard and pretended it was clean too!). A great cleaner is often able to see things that other people can’t and will clean things their customer didn’t even know needed cleaning.

3. Honesty If you possess the other qualities that make a cleaner great, your job should be incident free. But however careful you are, if you do a lot of cleaning it’s possible that at some point there may be an accident. If anything were to happen it’s essential that you’re upfront and honest with you
