How do I get paid?
Our clients will pay you directly on the day of the clean, via cash or bank transfer.
How many hours per week will I have?
Just tell us how many hours per week you need and we will work hard on your behalf to make sure you have the right number of regular clients to achieve these hours. It can take a few weeks to build your schedule but we will always achieve this as quickly as possible and keep you informed.
Can I choose what days and times I work?
You can! As you are self-employed, you create your own schedule for us and we will fill it for you. All we ask is that your agreed working days and times are the same each week so that our clients have a regular, reliable service.
What happens if I want to swap a client?
If for any reason you do not want to continue with a particular client, just let us know. We ask that you give us a minimum of 2 weeks notice and we will reassign that client to another cleaner and look to replace the hours for you with a different client.
Do I need my own transport?
It's not essential to have your own transport, but it does make it easier! You need to be confident that you can get to your assigned clients on time every week, regardless of the transportation method.
What happens if my client goes on holiday?
Some clients continue to have their cleans when they're away and use it as an opportunity for a deep clean whilst they're gone. However, if your client doesn't want you to attend, we can give you a cover clean or a one-off clean to replace the hours. Or you can just enjoy the break!
What should I wear?
You should wear comfortable clothing that is suitable for cleaning.
Do I take my own products and equipment?
Generally, you will use the client's own products and equipment, but it's always wise to have a small selection of products in your car just in case! If a client requests that you bring your own products / equipment, we will advise you in advance and we will inform the client to pay you a higher hourly rate to account for this.
What happens if any of my clients cancels their service?
Clients will cancel from time to time due to a change in circumstances and we will always replace those hours for you as soon as possible.
Do I need my own insurance?
Well Polished has comprehensive liability insurance so you do not need your own. Obviously, we expect you to be careful when cleaning to avoid any accidental damage to the clients property.
