Is your cleaning company operating with professional integrity?
This is a word of warning to all clients who employ cleaners with the belief that your property is protected and insured.
A few weeks ago I took on a cleaner from a company called Homeclean. Things did not go well as she failed to arrive at the correct time for our first meeting. This should have been a sign to me that things were not going to be good
On her first day at our property she damaged two main entrance locks:one to my property and one which is a mutual entrance for others. The total cost to replace the locks and keys totalled £160.
To my dismay this company refused to accept liability and declared they had no insurance of any kind!!
I have since discovered that the majority of companies are insured and this company works according to its own rules.
Needless to say I terminated my contract with this company. But for all of us who assume that professional companies are insured: Ask for their public liability insurance. If they do not have one , don't take them on!
