Home Cleaning Services
Keeping a large house clean can be a full time job, and that is why many homeowners in Singapore are looking for part time cleaners. A maid from a professional cleaning service will be able to take the major cleaning tasks off your shoulders, allowing you to focus on work, or caring for your family.
Hiring a cleaning service is a great idea, because:
- you don’t have to have strangers in your home all the time, if you hire a maid for 2-3 days a week.
- you save time, as you don’t have to take care of all the duties.
- you have more time to do the things you need to do.
The hot and humid Singapore climate tends to allow dust to settle on floors, windows and everywhere else, leaving you with much to do, and less time to do the things that are really important to you. Yet, there are many women who are prepared to clean your house on your behalf.
While most people prefer to save on the cost of a home helper on a full time basis, a part time maid can be a great compromise. It offers the benefits of a clean home, while saving on the cost of a full time maid.
Why You Should Work Through a Cleaning Service
When you decide to hire a part time (or even full time) maid, you should be aware of the options available to you.
1. Trained & Insured Maids
Local freelance maids and those visiting Singapore and working on social visit passes are often untrained. You will have to train them on how you want things to be done, or you will have to send them for training.
On the contrary, maids who work for reputable cleaning services in Singapore, are trained and insured, in the event that anything should happen while they provide cleaning services. It is, therefore, crucial that you choose a cleaning services company that insures their maids under the Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA).
2. Legal Maids
You could manage the process of finding a legal part time maid yourself, but why should you, when there are legitimate cleaning services in Singapore who have already done the work for you?
Professional cleaning services do all the necessary checks, helping you avoid the trouble of hiring someone who is not supposed to work in the country.
3. Full Time or Part Time
When you work through a cleaning service, you have the option to choose how frequently you need a maid. You can also opt for special services only, such as spring cleaning, window cleaning, upholstery cleaning, laundry, or whatever else you need help with.
4. Strict Requirements
The Singaporean Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has strict systems in place for homeowners who fail to abide by the law. Work permits that state that a maid is in one family’s employ, apply to that family only. However, if she works for a cleaning company, they may assign work for her at different clients’ homes or offices.
