Over-delivering on your house cleaning is a touchy subject. There are pros and cons to over-delivering on the cleaning services promised.
Angela Brown, The House Cleaning Guru gives us a look at the risks vs. rewards of over-delivering. Even if you’re speed cleaning, the message you send your clients is “I don’t respect your tight budget, so I’ll just pay it forward.

“Who collects the money for house cleaning? Should my employees accept payment? And what if the maid or house cleaner sees how much the client is paying for house cleaning? I’m trying to grow my cleaning company but losing employees because they think they’re doing all the work. And they should be making all the money.”
Who collects the money is a great question and Angela Brown, The House Cleaning Guru tackles it today. As a cleaning business owner, you have to collect money for house cleaning service but who collects the money is up to you.
You can accept payments online and your clients can pay by credit card. And if you accept credit card payments your employees will never see the money. Bill collecting is part of every job transaction and should be seamless.
