  • To avoid any future disputes, obtain a copy of the written agreement. It will detail all fees and costs associated with the services.
  • Before you make a final decision, call at least three companies to compare rates.

  • If the cleaning is going to take several hours or several days or if it will be divided over several days, you might want to plan to leave the house.
