Things to Consider When Hiring Maid Service

It is amazing how hard it is to find the perfect maid when hiring a maid service, and once you do find one that is trustworthy and has mastered the art of detailed cleaning, there is an even greater challenge in keeping it. Sometimes maids can really drive you up the wall but it is hard to manage without them so you have no choice but to hire one from Maid Service Ashburn VA. So what are the things to consider when hiring maid service?

1. Decide which service type is best for you. Know what is included in the basic service that they offer. It is also important to mention if ever you have pets so they can plan accordingly. There are services that specialize in customized cleaning and housekeeping.

2. Get a quote just before any kind of work is done so you will know the sum of money you will anticipate to hand out. Ask the forms of payment the company accepts. Make sure that both you and the maid clearly agree on what will be included for the quoted fee.

3. The maid service must be prepared to cater to your needs and streamline chores as per your request. Determine exactly what must be carried out and how frequently, either once a week, twice a month, or monthly. It will be easier for both of you when the expectations are spelled out and mutually understood right from the start.

Excellent maid service is, without question, out there. You simply have to be persistent and look for the one you are most secure and comfortable with. Inquire a lot until you find the perfect maid for you.

How To Be A Gracious Recipient

The adage “It is better to give than to receive” holds so much truth.  There is this unexplainable purifying joy that washes over you when you are being generous. But what if you are the receiver? Of course receiving something from someone makes you happy and you can share that happiness to the gift giver by being a gracious recipient. So, how to be  one?

When you already have the item…
Sometimes you might receive a duplicate gift or three.  In this instance, don’t say anything other than “Thank you.” It is something that the giver thought of. You can just regift the item to someone else or if you know where it was bought, exchange it for a different item. In that case, the giver’s money and effort will not be wasted.

Money gift…
Be discreet. Keep the amount to yourself. There is no need to embarrass the receiver. He/She may have given you less than the others but in gift giving, there is no small or big amount.  Remember that it is the thought that counts.

Broken gift…
Sometimes you will receive a damaged gift like jewelry with lose gemstone beads or porcelain that is broken. When this happens, again, just keep it to yourself and don’t tell the gift giver. Who would gift you something that is broken anyway? It may have been damaged from the delivery. Just check (if it is possible) where it was purchased and know if it can be replaced by the store with a new one.

You don’t like the gift…
Don’t raise your eyebrows. The givers love buying presents but they love your reaction even more. They would be delighted to see your smile and appreciation. A big hug and/or kiss on the cheek can make the gifter ‘s day as well.

Make a list…
Note down who gave you what.  The list will serve as you reference when you are about to make your thank you notes. Why write thank you notes? It is because one act of kindness deserves another. Don’t you think so?
