1. Choose your platform
If you decide on taking up a cleaning job, the first step is finding the company you want to work with. First, determine what kind of companies are available in your town or city. Take a look at SpreeWork’s Cleaning category and you will see a number of companies with opportunities. You will see a variety of app-based jobs listed in the category of Cleaning. Among them, there are Care, and Housekeeper.
• Care: In addition to cleaners, Care help pet sitters, babysitters, senior care providers and clients looking for them connect.
• Housekeeper.com: It’s probably not a mystery that Housekeeper is designed for homeowners searching for short-term and long-term housekeepers.
• HouseSitter: You’ll look after homes, pets, plants and such while the owners are gone.
• Thumbtack: Local professionals can buy credits and send briefs to clients in need of help with something.
The sign-up process varies from company to company, however, they are quick and easy. You’ll simply create an account and take it from there. A background check is fairly standard as part of the sign-up process. Whether you have to provide proof of former experience in cleaning, housekeeping and similar tasks, it depends on each platform.
2. Complete your profile
It may take a bit of time, but a complete profile will help you stand out from the many cleaners registered on any site, helping you to find jobs faster. Give a brief introduction, list your rate and services, and let people know your availability and the services you offer.
Strengthen your profile with an ID check, Facebook verification, or something else that works on the site. And upload a photo in which you look professional – as if you were about to present yourself as a speaker somewhere. Ask around among your friends or colleagues who could write some nice words about you. They might not depict you as a cleaner but will give potential clients an idea about who you are.
3. Find your clients
When you’ve jumped over the first hurdle, you are all set to find clients. This job just like many others originated in the shared economy system is based on mutual trust. Decide wisely on whom you want to work for. Without a sheer number of great reviews, you should start with lower rates. If possible, check other cleaners’ prices working in your area, and try to set competitive prices based on those.
4. Do a great job
Here come three pieces of advice on how to improve your cleaner work!
Use the best tools & equipment Keep in mind that for most of the cleaning jobs, you will be required to bring your own equipment. If you don’t have all the necessities at your home, it will be an investment for sure. Depending on what your clients need, you might need some extra items: for example, if you’re required to clean the windows, too. Make sure to check out all of the requirements for your job before you head over to the location to make sure you have everything needed.
Have some good time managementskills When you reach your cleaning job you need to have a strategy Familiarize yourself with the space and plan how much time you will need for each room. Make sure you also plan accordingly if you are cleaning more than one apartment or house during the day. Always account for the time you will need to travel from place A to place B. Use calendar to organize and keep track of all your shifts.
Be organized & focused Finally, pros say that the advantage of not cleaning your own place is that you are not attached to anything, so you can’t be easily distracted. The more active you are, the more work you can do within a shorter period of time. You might get paid on an hourly basis, but no one will pay you for seven hours if the standard time to do the job is only four.
5. Get good reviews
It takes time to become a highly rated professional cleaner. Remind all of your clients to give you five stars and positive feedback on your work on the site.
