Questions and Answers

 

Q. Will I have the same clients each week?

A. Yes when you have been allocated a client you will keep that client until you either leave the       agency or the client no longer requires a cleaner. 

Q. Is there a limit to the number of hours I can do?

A. We will allocate you as many clients as you need to make up the number of hours you need.

Q. Do you pay me?

A. No you are paid by the client on the day that you clean for them. 

Q. Do you pay my tax?

A. No you are paid by the client and not by us so you are responsible for paying any tax that might be due. For employment purposes you are self-employed. 

Q. Will the client want me to have a key to their house?

A. Often the client will want you to have their key as they are out at work. 

Q. If I have more than one clients key can I label them so that I don’t get them mixed up?

A. You must NEVER label the clients keys with an address. Use a colour code instead. 

Q. What if I want to take a holiday?

A. That’s fine the first thing to do is to tell your client and give them as much notice as possible and ask them if they would like us to arrange a temporary cleaner for them, once you have spoken to them give us a call and let us know.
