While it’s hard to pass up a good bargain, the saying ‘too good to be true’ is more accurate than not in most cases. When it comes to hiring a cleaner, using an open platform or hiring “cheap” can end up costing you more in the long run.
Here are our top three reasons why hiring a cleaner from Gumtree or from a recommendation can end up costing you a fortune:
Some Self Employed Cleaners Are Not Insured
Any damage done by a cleaner who does not have insurance comes straight out of your pocket – hobby cleaners do not have the financial means to replace or repair your property, and worse off, they can’t legally be held responsible for any damage caused. You are also solely responsible for any theft on your property when hiring an uninsured cleaner, and worse yet – if your cleaner has an accident in your home, you could be footing the medical bills, too.
Anyone Could Show Up
House cleaners advertising or responding to ads on sites like Gumtree are not forced to be background checked. What if the house cleaner you’re about to hire is actually a criminal and you don’t know it? You could be exposing your home, your family, and your property to a potential criminal disguised as an innocent looking house cleaner who now has full access to your home.
At HomeTask, all our cleaners have undertaken a Police Check and have provided copies prior to commencing any home cleaning tasks. What is a Police Check? A police certificate is an official document issued as a result of a background check by the police or government agency of a country to enumerate any criminal records that the applicant may have.
Not All House Cleaners Have the Same Experience
One of the main reasons people want to pay less for house cleaning services is because they believe that all house cleaning services are the same, and it is not hard to clean. This is simply not true – cleaning a home requires a lot of attention to detail and pride.
HomeTask cleaners are all experienced and work hard perfecting their art as cleaners. Some of our on demand house cleaners acquiring over 20,000 hours of on the job cleaning experience.
At HomeTask, we believe in ensuring all our cleaning professionals are suitable in every way, and they all undertake our verification process:

Step 3 – Police Checked
They have undertaken a successful police check and a copy has been provided to HomeTask.
Step 4 – Communication
