Many cleaning companies pay poorly and exploit their employees
When looking for a cleaning service, you may be tempted to call the one with the most professional-looking marketing presence, but this can often be a poor option. Many corporate cleaning services pay workers very low wages and focus on speed over quality of service.
Solution: Support local entrepreneurs by hiring independent cleaners
Look for a reputable individual or family outfit to hire. Not only will your money be going directly to a local entrepreneur, but you will often find you have more flexibility in tailoring their services to your needs
