Professional And Quality Pool Cleaners - How To Choose

by Pool Builders on 03-29-2015 in Articles

A swimming pool is an asset on your property. It automatically boosts the value of your home. Not only this, it is a great place to exercise and a great place to have fun. The only drawback is maintenance. It takes hours to complete. Don't let the tedious task of having to clean the swimming pool make you forego the idea of including one in your house design. By hiring professional pool cleaners you can sign up for endless hours of enjoyment without the hassles of cleaning.

Recommendations

I think the best way to choose pool cleaners is by way of recommendations. Ask family, friends and neighbors with swimming pools on their premises for the company they personally use. Discuss service satisfaction and cost reasonability with them. This way you can zero down on a reliable and affordable pool cleaning service minus the hours of search.

Prerequisites - License, Insurance and Equipment

There are many pool cleaning companies out in the market today. But not all of them are genuine. A few buy their business licenses while others self-declared pool cleaners. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the company you are opting for has the proper licensing to take up the job. To add, their team of professionals should be well-trained on the job.

Liability insurance follows the business license. Insurance is essential should the yard to the swimming pool get damaged during the cleaning procedure. It is also necessary in case a worker gets injured while at the job.

One of the reasons for hiring a professional pool cleaning company is because you don't have the right equipment at hand to do a thorough job. What use is a company that sails in the same boat as you? You should ask what equipment and chemicals the company uses in the cleaning procedure. It is mostly a telescoping pole, vacuum hoses, vacuum heads, leaf traps, pool brushes and skimmer nets.

Do your own research

If there are no friends and relatives that can provide you with recommendations, you will have to do a personal search. In addition to the prerequisites mentioned above, you will have to look for the following.

· How much experience does the company have in the field of work? The longer they have been in business there is more reason to consider them.

· How many projects have they handled in the past? Ask if you could read up project reports of previous customers.

· You should also do a background check into the company by reading up customer testimonials. Try contacting them to ask if the company is well-trained, well-equipped and shows up on time.

The Real Task

After you've shortlisted a few companies, here's how you should proceed. Request the pool cleaning company to give you a free estimate. Make it a point to ask the company what cleaning services are included for the cost. Most companies will give you a contract to outline the services they will provide as part of the job. Read the contract carefully before you sign the dotted line.

The cleaning service is a periodic one. Swimming pools must be cleaned at least once in a week or once every 15 days. Therefore, the frequency that is how often the company will come in to clean your pool is an important consideration to make. Sign a contract for a minimum period. You can always extend the contract after you have tried them out.
