2. Look up online ratings and reviews. There are plenty of online review sites that you can use to determine what kind of reputation a cleaning company has. If you can get firsthand recommendations from family, neighbors and friends, that is all well and good. Online independent review sites are however also a good option as you will have a wider range of opinions to consider.

Liability cover will ensure that in case any of your property is damaged, you will be compensated. It will also protect you from liability if the employees injure themselves on your premises. Background checks are a good way to ensure that the people you are letting in do not have a history of committing crimes.
