There are some professional cleaning services in Toronto that require their clients to sign a contract with them. This contract will usually be to ensure that the client has this cleaning company come to their home on a consistent basis.
It doesn’t matter whether it is weekly, biweekly, monthly, or even every six month period. You shouldn’t be forced to sign any type of contract with any professional cleaning service.
Some people are uncomfortable with signing these contracts because, especially if they have not had this particular cleaning service come to their home yet, they don’t know about the quality they will receive. Other people may not want to get locked into having to pay for cleaning service every single week or every other week.
Contracts are great for the professional cleaning company, but they do little for the client. Some companies will offer a discount if their clients sign a long-term contract with them. If you look at the fine print and consider the overall expense involved in hiring a professional cleaning service for a year or more, it becomes clear that the savings you get by signing this type of contract is relatively insignificant with regard to the overall expense that you incur.
For the professional cleaning company, having customers locked into contracts is a great benefit for them. It means that they will have continual revenue for the specified period of time in the contract. While they still want to focus on quality, they aren’t likely to be focused on impressing their clients.
A professional cleaning company that takes pride in its work, has exceptional equipment that cannot only clean carpeting and other aspects of the home more thoroughly than most other providers in the area, and that trains its employees well, will be more likely to do a great job every single time than those companies that require a contract.
When you do work very well, then customers will want to use your services time and time again. There is no need for a contract when it comes to professional cleaning services, unless the company is concerned about losing customers.
