If you find yourself with parents who are living in a residence that is unkept at best and filthy at worst, you may have made the decision to seek professional residential cleanup assistance for them. This may be the first time in your life that you’ve needed to hire a residential cleanup professional that has the ability and background to take on a really tough job. With this in mind, there are some specific things to look for when looking for a residential cleanup professional to handle a tougher job at the home of your parents:
- Experience and background
- Crew training
- Bonding and insurance
- Pricing practices
- Ability to remediate biohazards
Experience and Background
When you are looking for a residential cleaning professional that can assist you in dealing with a chronic cleanliness issue at your parents’ residence, experience and background of a provider is fundamental. You need to closely examine the extent of experience a prospective company has at providing the type of cleaning or remediation services you need to remedy a situation at your parents’ residence.
Eco Bear is an example of a residential cleanup company that has experience and background in a wide range of areas that include:
- Filthy home cleanup
- Biohazard remediation
- Rodent dropping cleanup
- Fire and smoke remediation
- Water damage restoration
- Infectious disease remediation
- Hoarder property cleanup
- And other types of residential cleanup and remediation
On a related note, when you are seeking a residential cleanup professional to provide services at the home of your parents (who have had a chronic problem maintaining a tidy residence), you must consider the specific training that the provider’s crew has obtained. You want to ensure that a crew assigned to work at the residence of your parents has a strong background in addressing the specific type of cleanup operation that is needed at the home of your parents. The owner or operator of a residential cleanup company needs to be able to recount the background and experience of the professionals they have on their team.
Bonding and Insurance
Proper bonding and insurance are crucial when it comes to engaging the services of a residential cleanup company. You need to make certain that the company itself has appropriate liability insurance to cover any issue that potentially could arise while providing services at your parents’ home. You also need to confirm that any individual team member from the provider who will work at your parents’ residence is properly insured and bonded.
Odds are that you will not need to make an insurance claim or a claim against a bond. Nevertheless, the mantra of better safe than sorry comes into play here. You need to be sure these types of protections and in place to ensure that you are protected should an issue ever arise.
Sadly, many companies and other service providers in the residential cleanup arena most definitely do not provide transparency when it comes to their billing and pricing. For example, they provide slippery cost estimates for a project that always turn out to be too low – and oftentimes significantly off the mark. In addition, many of these companies layer on a myriad of additional fees and undisclosed charges.
When it comes to pricing practices for a professional residential cleanup project, you want to look to a company like Eco Bear. Since it’s founding, Eco Bear has been fully committed to providing clients with fully transparent pricing. When Eco Bear provides an estimate for its services, it is a dollar amount that you can rely on. There are no additional charges or upcharges once you elect to utilize the professional residential cleanup services we provide in a three-state region.
In addition, Eco Bear never uses a hidden fee scheme. You know up front precisely what you will be paying for and how much your bill will be. Moreover, unlike the competition, you do not pay any of the fee until the work is completed and you’ve had the opportunity to inspect and approve the results.
Ability to Remediate Biohazards
When looking for a residential cleanup professional, you want to consider a service provider that offers biohazard remediation services. The reality is that in many situations in which elderly parents have a particularly unkept residence, biohazards can be present at the property. Biohazards in a filthy home can include such things as:
- Rotting food
- Human feces and urine
- Animal feces and urine
- Other substances which threaten the health and wellbeing of your parents
An example of a company that provides thorough cleaning services for a senior citizen along with comprehensive biohazard remediation is Eco Bear. The professionals at Eco Bear have the training, experience, and background necessary to efficiently, effectively, and safely remove biohazards that might exist at your parents’ residence.
