5 Things Your Cleaner Wishes You Knew - Making Cleaning Quicker and Better with Simple Steps

Having a cleaner to help maintain a tidy and organized home is a blessing, but there are certain things that your cleaner REALLY wishes you knew. By understanding these essentials, you can work together more effectively to achieve a cleaner and more enjoyable living space and save yourself any headaches. In this blog, we'll delve into five essential tips that can make your cleaner's job easier and, in turn, lead to quicker and better cleaning results.


1. They LOVE when you clear the clutter

This makes all the difference in a quick and easy clean. When you ensure all your items are cleared, your cleaner can focus on giving you the best clean possible.

Mango Tip: Before your cleaner arrives, take a few moments to tidy up and declutter the spaces they'll be working in. Clearing away toys, clothes, and other items strewn about the floor or countertops not only saves time for your cleaner, but it also ensures they can access all the surfaces that require attention. With a clutter-free environment, your cleaner can focus on deep cleaning and leave your
home sparkling.

2. Communicating your priorities is in everybody's best interest

Be honest, is there one thing (or more) in your home that you are SUPER particular about? Only like lavender scents in your bathroom? Can't stand towels being folded a certain way? Tell your cleaner ahead of time!

Every home is unique, and so are the cleaning needs of each household. Take some time to communicate your cleaning priorities to your cleaner. Whether it's giving extra attention to the kitchen or focusing on specific tasks like dusting high shelves or cleaning behind furniture, clear communication helps your cleaner allocate their time more efficiently. They'll appreciate the guidance and can tailor their efforts to address your specific needs.


3. Make sure to keep cleaning supplies stocked (especially if you have allergies or sensitivities)

Imagine your cleaner arriving ready to tackle the tasks at hand, only
to find they've got a rag and half a bottle of dish soap to tackle the whole house with! To avoid this hiccup, ensure that you keep your cleaning supplies well-stocked. From basic items like all-purpose cleaners, microfiber cloths, and paper
towels to specific products for special surfaces, having the necessary tools readily available helps your cleaner get right to work and saves precious time.


Mango Tip: When it comes to cleaning supplies we all have preferences but some of us can also be more sensitive than others. If you have particular smells you like/don't or any allergies to cleaning products, it's always best to let your cleaner know and stock products accordingly. 


4. Waiting until they get there to clean spills is NOT a good idea

While your cleaners are there to clean, leaving spills until they get there is doing yourself (and the stained item) a disservice. Staines should be tackled quickly and can always get an extra few minutes of attention when your cleaner does come. While your cleaner is responsible for routine cleaning, addressing spills and stains promptly can make a significant difference. Accidents happen, and taking a minute to wipe up a spill or mark on a surface can prevent it from becoming a stubborn stain that requires extra effort to remove later. Encourage all members of your household to clean up messes as they occur, and it will contribute to a cleaner overall environment between scheduled cleanings.


5. Your appreciation makes their day

Who doesn't like being told they are a superstar?! Cleaning is a physically demanding job, and your cleaner puts in the effort to ensure your home remains a clean and comfortable place to live. Showing appreciation for their hard
work can go a long way in fostering a positive working relationship. A simple "thank you" or a kind note can brighten their day and motivate them to continue providing excellent service. Treating your cleaner with respect and kindness creates a positive atmosphere for everyone involved.


In conclusion, understanding these five key points can make a world of difference in making your cleaner's job easier, resulting in quicker and better cleaning outcomes. By decluttering, communicating priorities, keeping supplies stocked, addressing spills promptly, and showing appreciation, you contribute to a more efficient and harmonious cleaning experience. Working hand in hand with your
cleaner not only maintains a cleaner home but also fosters a positive and respectful environment for everyone involved. Remember, a little consideration can go a long way in creating a space you'll love to come home to.
