As a Maid Service Provider, have you ever arrived to a client's home, you've bid for a certain quantity of time, or a specific task, and you arrive, and there's extra work needed? What on earth do you do?
All right, now that is a trick question, because we have allotted a particular quantity of time based upon a person's house when we went to bid the preliminary agreement, right? Now, when you get to a consumer's home, and it's really important to do this in advance, when you get to a client's home and you're walking through the house with the customer. You have to ask the homeowner about this question, "Did you simply get your house before I arrived here, or is your house always in this condition? If I offer you a cost based on this condition of your home, when I get here each time to work, I expect your house to be in this condition.
If I show up and there's spaghetti all over the kitchen, or if there are toys all over the house, or there's laundry and things scattered about, and there's mess everywhere, it's going to take a lot more time than I'm bidding for right now. In the event that I get here and the home is simply trashed for whatever reason, and in some cases it takes place, I either need to charge you more money, or I require to just pick up the mess and let that be the cleaning of the day. All right, then from day one, let's concur that when I get here, your home will be in this condition, because if you're showing up now, and the home keeps getting messier and messier, either the nanny needs to pick up the toys, or the home owner needs to select up the toys, or the kid whose toys they belong to require to choose up the toys.
I don't actually care who it is, because unless they have actually contracted you to pick up the clutter, then that has to be a discussion that you have with the property owner, due to the fact that nobody is paying you today to get the mess, and you have another home to clean up when you're done here. Despite the fact that you're not charging by the hour, you're still working by the hour, due to the fact that we just have numerous hours in a day. No matter what you're doing, you're in essence working by the hour, due to the fact that you're investing a few of your time in order to do that job. If you have two or three homes in a day, whether you want to say it or not, it's on a timed schedule.
When the time for that home is up, you can't keep remaining and cleaning up, since you will lose profits from the next home you're supposed to go clean. Does that make good sense? You do have to have a conversation with the client, and just say, "Hey, listen. When I bid the job, your house remained in this condition, and now that I've shown up, every time there's extra clutter. It's taking some time that I do not have.
I did not budget plan the mess time into the task and the rate that I gave you. Now, a lot of individuals when you provide them the choice, they don't want to pay the additional money, due to the fact that home cleaning is not low-cost, and they can inexpensively pick up their own toys, or teach their kids to put things away after they're done. It is a learned ability, and it's something a parent can learn and teach their kids, and their children can discover it without the parents having to pay the house cleaner that extra money.
"Your house is a mess, you employed me. I require to assist you, you need to assist me understand what those solutions are. The 2 of you need to decide that.
Till we meet again, leave the world cleaner than when you found it.
