6 Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing a Part Time Maid in Singapore



These days, most people who reside in Singapore are occupied with their busy lifestyles. They lack adequate time to keep their homes clean by performing household chores like cleaning, cooking and taking care of their children. If you are having problems keeping the affairs of your home in order for any reason, you can hire a part time maid. A maid can help you complete chores such as mopping floors, washing dishes, vacuuming carpets and washing clothes among other tasks. However, when hiring a part time maid, you should be careful not to make certain mistakes. The following are six mistakes to avoid when choosing a part time maid in Singapore. 

 6 Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing Part Time Maid

Choosing a part time maid based on low fees.
Even though it is important to hire a part time maid who charges reasonably, you should not hire this professional just because he or she charges low fees. A maid who charges very low fees may not offer efficient cleaning services. Extremely low prices are usually offered by maids who work individually. These maids tend not to have insurance and they are not bonded. If something gets damaged as they work, you will have to meet the costs of replacing it. A low price could also mean that the part time maid uses cheap cleaning supplies and equipment that may not clean your home effectively.

Choosing a part time maid based on the information you get over the phone.
It is fine to make a phone call to enquire about the services a maid agency offers. However, you should not consider phone calls as the only available option for hiring a domestic worker. It is essential to invite the person to your place of residence and ask for a written estimate. In this way, you will know the services you will pay for and you will not be victimized by the high pressure tactics that a cleaning service provider may use when he or she arrives at your home. Reputable cleaning service providers offer a multiple packages of cleaning services. They also offer six month or one year contracts and additional home maintenance services through their certified affiliates like painters, plumbers, handymen and interior decorators among others. 

Choosing a part time maid without getting testimonials from previous clients.
Part time maid agencies or maids who work individually may say anything about the jobs they have completed in the past. Sadly, some of the things they say may be false. Therefore, it is advisable that you ask for references when hiring a part time maid. You can also read comments from previous clients of the agency or maid so that you can determine the quality of services offered. 

Choosing a maid agency that is not allowed to operate by the Singapore ministry of manpower.
Under the regulations of the government of Singapore, only licensed and accredited maid agencies are allowed to operate. Make sure that you do not make the mistake of using the services of a maid agency that is not allowed to operate by the Singapore ministry of manpower. You should also avoid making the mistake of hiring a part time maid employed by an agency that is not accredited by the Association of Employment Agencies. You may get into problems with the authorities if you use the services of agencies that operate illegally. 

Choosing a maid agency without being crystal clear about what you expect and the duties included in the agency’s written quotation.
It is important into let the maid agency you want to hire know about your cleaning needs and find out if it can meet them. Reputable maid agencies usually provide their clients with service agreements that specifically outline the tasks that they can complete as part of their house cleaning service. The more common areas of potential confusion include making beds, cleaning high reach window seals, handling trash and dusting ceiling fan blades. You can protect yourself by asking the agency to inform you about the all the areas a part time maid will clean. 

Choosing a maid service agency that does not offer money back guarantees
Do not hire a maid service agency that is not willing to refund a hundred percent of the money you paid for cleaning services if you are not satisfied with them. Make sure that you also check the fine print to ensure that the money back guarantee that a maid agency claims to offer is not limited in any way. 

Avoiding these six mistakes when hiring a part time maid will help prevent potential disagreements. You will have a good working relationship with the maid you hire.
