House Cleaning Services Johannesburg

The Advantages of Using House Cleaning Services in Johannesburg

Johannesburg is notorious for its high crime levels, and unfortunately theft of valuable goods by cleaners rate high on the scale of offenses.  It is therefore a very serious issue and one that needs thorough consideration when you decide to employ a cleaner or a domestic helper.  The prospect of finding someone who is reliable, punctual, trustworthy and effective is a difficult one, and a lot of people do not even know where to start.  Most people need some help in the house at some stage, and even if you only need house cleaning services, Johannesburg is a  daunting place to find a good candidate if you do not have anyone with personal recommendations of family or friends.

A solution to this dilemma is to make use of an agency such as NannyMaids that can provide house cleaning services in Johannesburg.  It is not always possible to employ somebody on a permanent basis, and employing the help of a cleaning service may be just what you need.  There are many advantages to employing a cleaning service over a full time domestic helper.

Trustworthy and reliable staff

Agency staff is usually carefully selected and vetted before employing them to work on client premises.  Background checks are performed, quite often criminal and credit checks are done, and copies of identification documentation and other details are taken and verified to eliminate any suspicious elements.  References are followed up and verified and as employment continues, regular progress reports are logged on staff performance.  Any potential problems are identified early on and undesirable candidates are not employed.  This means that the client who uses the cleaning service can rest assured that only the best and most reliable staff will enter their premises, and that no theft or other misdeeds will take place.

No administration hassles

As the agency is technically the employer of the cleaning staff, the agency is also responsible for any administration relating to the employment of the cleaner.  Tax, UIF, leave days, sick leave and other administrative duties are all performed by the agency. 

Training and discipline

In order to ensure that their staff perform effectively and also to advance the employment prospects or the cleaner, regular training is provided for staff by the agency.  Cleaning staff are taught how to clean properly, how to deal with certain situations and materials, such as certain types of stains, fabrics or objects.  They are also trained on the use of everyday household objects, such as vacuum cleaners, washing machines and dishwasher machines.  This ensures that the cleaners who clean your home do a wonderful job and that they do not damage any of your household items or ruin any of your pieces of furniture while performing their duties. 

You do not have to spend any time training or supervising.  In addition to this, all disciplinary matters are dealt with by the agency.  It can be extremely stressful to deal with a full time helper who is not performing properly and personal grievances and other issues may get in the way, employers feel that they cannot fire their staff, and when staff are eventually fired it could lead to unfair dismissal claims and CCMA hearings.  As an individual these are all things that you do not want to deal with after a hectic day at work!  Employing house cleaning services in Johannesburg will set you free from this burden as all these matters are dealt with by the agency.

Cover during absences

It is often difficult to deal with no help when a full time maid goes on leave or is off ill.  When you have an agency doing your cleaning you don’t need to worry about this.  The agency will have a number of cleaners on their books and will always have enough staff to take care of your cleaning needs. 

Additional staff

If you need additional staff during busy times such as holidays, or to clean up after a party, or even to perform a thorough spring clean of your premises, the agency will be able to provide more staff.
