Letter: Ask questions when hiring cleaning businesses

This is an important letter from a residential cleaning company, Wife for Hire, in reference to an article about a couple, a man and woman, that passed themselves off as a cleaning company (“Couple accused of stealing jewelry, pawning it”).

First, Wife For Hire has never heard of these people. We’ve been in business since 1985, an important note to all.

Please be sure of who you are letting into your homes and offices. Please check out who they are and if they are licensed and a member of the Chamber of Commerce or the credit bureau.

When you talk with them, get information on who will be coming into your homes. Make sure they are bonded, licensed and have liability insurance.

Also, how old is the business? Ask for references.

Ask about their employees and information on the business. It’s important that you ask for this information to protect yourself and your home.
