Fortunately, the reasons for hiring the services of a home cleaning company are not common. This is usually when someone's circumstances change and they have to move from their current home, often due to health problems, a failed relationship, work, or retirement. Or maybe a relative is dead and your house is vacant and needs to be cleaned. These are all valid reasons to consider hiring the services of a home cleaning company.

This article aims to explain the somewhat complex way in which a home office company will calculate its charges based on the value of approved items.

As a general rule, a house cleaning company will charge a moderate fee for cleaning the house, depending on the number of rooms, bedrooms, garage, garden, etc.

The degree of "moderation" of this load will depend on the content that is removed, which is generally included in one of three scenarios:

1. The contents of the house have no resale value. This attracts the highest load because the contents will simply be removed and taken to the nearest waste container.

2. Contents include a mix of disposable and salable items. Here the fee is reduced by the estimated value of the salable goods.

3. Most of the content is salable. This attracts the lowest rate. Some companies even offer to share the proceeds from the sale with you if they exceed the settlement cost; it is always worth checking if this deal is available.

The home cleaning company receives an income from salable items in one of the following ways:

i) Sell or auction salable furniture and other household items

ii) Sell scrap metal and cables by weight to appropriate scrap metal recyclers

iii) Sell clothing and bedding to appropriate fabric recyclers

So you can see that the house cleaning company has a few options when estimating their costs (the number of rooms and the estimated value of salable items), but basically they are taking a calculated bet on the income they will receive from the salable items, and adjust the cost of the office to suit you.

Finally, here are some tips and suggestions to ensure your home's free space is as fluid as possible.

a) Be sure to use an accredited home cleaning company, one with a waste license number.

b) Get a firm quote, in writing if possible.

c) Make sure that you and the cleaning company are clear about exactly what you need to remove from each room, garage, garden, etc.

c) Pay by check or bank transfer if possible, that way you will have a payment record.

d) Make sure you receive an invoice. A licensed waste hauler must insist on giving you an invoice.
