Well, hiring an amateur seems cheaper than a professional until you deal with them. In the long run, you will end up wasting your time on a service that was intended to save your time and reduce the stress of having to clean your premises on a regular basis. Cheaper cleaning services usually need you to look for a housekeeper, check their background, train them and even provide the necessary cleaning items. Also, you have to supervise, manage and handle their payroll taxes, even if they claim to be independent contractors. If the cleaner isn’t documented or brings undocumented people along for the job, the savings won’t be worth it. It is usually best to deal with professionals if you do not want a headache in any type of service. Also, there’s the risk of safety and most cheap cleaning service providers don’t have adequate insurance or licensing to make it worth the risk.
