Learn how to choose a pool cleaning company that ticks all the boxes
Do you find yourself spending more time taking care of your pool than you do enjoying it? If your answer is yes, it may be time to think about hiring a professional pool cleaning company.
In Orlando, the weather is always perfect for a swim—so it’s important to keep your pool pristine all year round! To help you decide who’s up to the job, we’ve put together a list of the 5 most important things to look for when hiring a pool cleaning company.
Choose a company that’s licensed and insured
When you’re researching a pool cleaning company, make sure you ask for their credentials. A licensed, insured pool cleaning company will uphold higher service standards than an unlicensed pool cleaner—plus, you’re protected if anything goes wrong when they’re servicing your pool.
Ask how many years they’ve been in business and how many pools they take care of. If they don’t have a website or social media presence, ask them to share customer testimonials and photos of the pools they’ve serviced.
You can learn a lot about a pool cleaning company just from the first interactions you have with them. Do they respond promptly and professionally to phone calls and messages? Do they take the time to listen to what you need? Do they provide a comprehensive quote that lists all of the charges upfront?
These first communications with a prospective pool cleaning company can tell you a lot about how things are likely to go once you hire them. If they respond in a timely manner, answer all of your questions and act professionally throughout, there’s a big chance they’ll do a great job taking care of your pool, too.
Comprehensive pool cleaning
Don’t hire a pool cleaning company that only does half the job! There’s not much point paying a professional to take care of your pool if you’ll still have to do some of the dirty work yourself.
Look for a pool cleaning company that offers more than just chemical analysis and water balancing. Comprehensive pool cleaning should always include:
- Cleaning the pool walls, tiles and water line
- Skimming the pool surface
- Cleaning the skimmer and pump baskets
- Cleaning the pool filter
- Inspecting all pool equipment.
Regular inspection of your pool equipment can actually help you save money in the long run. Keeping everything well-maintained will help to extend the life of your equipment and may mean fewer costly repair bills in the future.
Read the reviews
Before hiring a pool cleaning company, check out their reviews on Google and Facebook. Pay close attention to what customers say about the quality of the work as well as the promptness, reliability and professionalism of the pool cleaning team.
Don’t forget the finishing touches
To help you keep the area around your pool beautifully maintained, an experienced pool cleaning company may also offer some great extra services in addition to weekly pool cleaning. These extra services may include:
- Deep cleaning of pool tiles
- Pressure washing the pool deck and screen
- School day (educational sessions for homeowners to help them learn how to take care of their pool).
