Forgetting To Knock
Knocking, ringing the door bell, and making an announcement that one has arrived is crucial. This establishes trust and reverence for the job at hand. Unless a client has absolutely said explicitly that one can come in or they give a key and deliberately say to just come in at a certain time, there is never a moment that one should just walk in at any given time without knocking, simple as that.
Disregarding Requests (Cleaning Solutions)
You may enter a home where the owner wants a certain cleaning methodology, even if it may harm surfaces, or cause damage. It’s important not to disregard a request, but rather discuss it if you have concerns. Perhaps they are not informed about the issues, and you can enlighten them about it. It’s important to ensure that they are not risking any major issue here.
It’s imperative that fragrances are not spread around, unless requested. Potpourri, deodorant sprays, powders, and more can leave a scene. It’s imperative that none are left behind, lingering, or anything along those lines. Unless requested, don’t use scenes in cleaning.
Never Keep Anything
It happens all the time, housekeepers find jewelry, change, and more while cleaning. It’s imperative not to keep anything. Tell the homeowner and leave it in the home, never take it, no matter how miniscule or forgotten something may seem. This is a sure fire way to ruin trust, simple as that.
Keep Things Professional
Regardless of whether a homeowner is at home, it’s imperative that you keep things professional and not focus on conversation. Furthermore, don’t make yourself at home at all, keep things focused. Make sure that you aren’t turning on radios, television, or using anything that is in the home, unless explicitly discussed ahead of time.
These things are important to consider whether you’re a housekeeper or you’re hiring someone to clean. These allow for professionalism to thrive overall.
