Do i need to leave instructions for the cleaner ?

Leaving instructions for the cleaner can be very helpful to ensure that your specific needs and preferences are met. Here are some reasons why providing instructions is beneficial and some tips on what to include:

Reasons to Leave Instructions:

Clarify Expectations:

  • Clearly outline what tasks you expect to be completed, ensuring there is no confusion about what is required.

Highlight Priorities:

  • Highlight Priorities:

If certain areas or tasks are more important to you, specifying these priorities helps the cleaner focus on what matters most to you.

Special Requests:

  • Mention any particular requests or specific cleaning products you prefer to be used or avoided.

Personal Preferences:

  • Provide details on how you like certain tasks to be done, such as how you want items organised or specific cleaning methods you prefer.


  • Detailed instructions can help the cleaner work more efficiently, as they won’t need to guess or repeatedly ask for clarification.

What to Include in Your Instructions:

General Overview:

  • Provide a general overview of the house, including the number of rooms and any specific areas that need special attention.

Priority Areas:

  • Highlight any high-priority areas or tasks, such as deep cleaning the kitchen, focusing on the bathrooms, or ensuring the living room is spotless.

Specific Tasks:

  • List specific tasks you want to be done in each room. For example:

  • Kitchen: Clean inside and outside of appliances, wipe down worktops, mop the floor.

  • Bathrooms: Scrub shower and bath, disinfect the toilet, clean mirrors and tiles.

  • Living Room: Dust all surfaces, vacuum carpets, clean windows.

  • Bedrooms: Dust furniture and vacuum floors.

Allergies or Sensitivities:

  • Inform the cleaner of any allergies or sensitivities to certain cleaning products or materials.

Special Instructions:

Providing clear and detailed instructions will help ensure that the cleaning meets your expectations and that any specific requirements are addressed.
