Hiring a house cleaning service can make your life much easier, and your home cleaner.

Here are tips for house cleaning services to ensure that you're keeping your side of the street clean in this two-way relationship:

1. Prepare before the house cleaner arrives
If you want your house cleaner to focus on cleaning, it's smart to clear away clutter that would get in the way. Also, keep in mind that cleaners don't usually move furniture. If you want a hard-to-reach area cleaned, consider moving items out of the way ahead of time to make it accessible.

You may want to secure jewelry, valuables and highly fragile items, particularly if you're using a new service or if your cleaning company frequently rotates personnel

2. Communicate clearly with your cleaners
Communication plays a vital role in successful house cleaning experiences. In the beginning or if you want to make changes, do a walk-through of your house and provide a written list of priority items to be cleaned.

Let your house cleaner know if there are particular products and supplies you want used.

Speak up if you have concerns about the quality of work. Poor communication is sometimes the source of unsatisfying experiences.

3. Respect your house cleaner's time constraints
Be aware that house cleaners typically have limited time to complete their work. If you're present during the cleaning, allow workers to focus on their job as much as possible.

A well-intentioned offer of food, drink or conversation could actually hinder a busy house cleaner.

4. Tip house cleaners
Owners of highly rated cleaning services say tipping is not expected or required. At year's end, a cash bonus or other gift can be a nice way to show appreciation, but doing so is always your decision.

What to know before you hire cleaning services
Do your research before hiring an individual house cleaner, or granting a house cleaning service regular access to your home. Find out whether the cleaning service is appropriately licensed, insured and bonded. Ask questions, including if the company hires employees or uses independent workers, and if they are subjected to background checks. Ask if your home will be consistently cleaned by the same individual or crew.

Find out whether the service provides supplies or if that is your responsibility. Check online reviews and contact references. Meet any prospective cleaners in your home, and do a walk-through. Make a written list of cleaning priorities and any pertinent details.
