What kind of cleaning can be provided by the maid or cleaning company?
Besides home cleaning, they can also provide specialty services such as cleaning new residences, vacant homes, and furniture with extra care. If you wish to hire a cleaning company, they can even provide a wider range of options in terms of home cleaning services on a more standardized and professional level, such as deep cleaning, pest control and fumigation.
How to choose between independent cleaners and cleaning companies? How to choose the most suited home cleaning services?
The fees for home cleaning are charged on hourly basis. For home cleaning service on a smaller scale, the cost of hiring a part time cleaner is more or less the same as hiring a cleaning company. However, the geographical factors will influence the maid's incentive to travel as well as the cleaning rates. For example, hiring a part time maid who live in Yuen Long to work in Tuen Mun will spike up the hourly rates. Relatively speaking, the cleaning company is flexible in the sense where they can locate at least 1 worker to different districts for large-scale home cleaning services . Yet, employing the acquainted cleaning helper will give you a sense of security.
Do I have to purchase Workers' Compensation Insurance for the part time helper?

An employer who fails to comply with the Ordinance to secure an insurance cover commits an offense and is liable on conviction to a maximum fine of HK$100,000 and imprisonment for two years.
What kind of preparations should be done prior to cleaning?
First of all, the homeowner should spare clutters, dirty clothes, rubbish, etc. to elsewhere for the convience of the maid to manage the cleaning process. To avoid any possible thefts, all valuables like jewelry should be locked at the place in which cannot be accessed by the maid. Please kindly store important documents and differentiate from other scrap paper. All pets and plants should be placed properly for the convenience of the part time domestic helpers.
