Worksheets and Checklists

Angela Brown Oberer

Angela Brown
CEO, Savvy Cleaner Training

The worksheet is one of the most important tools you will use in your cleaning business. At first glance it’s a checklist of things to clean at a client’s house.

And while that is true in a sense, it’s so much more.

We’ve revised and reworked the “worksheet” for almost 30 years.

It’s a blend of psychology, behavioral economics, scarcity, diplomacy, and confidence all rolled into the easiest sales tool you’ll ever use.

But there is a catch. You have to know how to use it, and why you can’t skip a single part of it.

Lots of house cleaners get their hands on one and the first thing they do is they cut stuff out. They add stuff to make it look fuller, fancier or whatever — and with the edits they edit out most of their profits.

If you’ve got a cleaning business, stop what you are doing and take the time to learn the hidden secrets of why the worksheet works so well.

FAQ About the Worksheets

  • Can I use an electronic worksheet vs. paper?
  • Can I customize each line item for each customer?
  • Do you give the client a copy of the worksheet before they sign up with you?
  • Are you supposed to give the client a copy every time you clean or just on the walkthrough?
  • What if the client has more rooms in their house than are on the worksheet?
  • What if the client doesn’t have as many rooms as are on the worksheet?
  • Doesn’t using all this paper for worksheets waste a lot of trees?
  • Do we have to use your worksheet or can we create our own?
  • Why were the changes to the 2020 Worksheet added only now?
  • Can’t we just use a checklist app like Google Keep or Evernote instead of this?
  • Why do we need a checklist? The client can see if the house is clean or not.
  • If we use a checklist won’t it look bad if I don’t check all the stuff off?
  • If the client gives me a checklist, do I use theirs or mine?
  • What if the job is a deep clean, is there a different worksheet?

And the good news is we cover all this and more inside this course. Hip Hip Hooray!

When you’re finished, you will have unlocked the secrets to the worksheet. You will know how to use them and why.

And then you can decide if they are right for you – but you will never again wonder if they work.

The Anatomy of a Worksheet

In this course, we break down every part of the worksheet and the importance of each section.

We’ll cover:

  • What Goes in the Header
  • The #1 Thing to Never Leave Off Your Worksheet
  • How Your Company Works
  • Why Checkboxes are Important
  • Why We Put This in the Notes Section
  • What Goes in the Supplies Section
  • Clarifying Your Rules and Regulations
  • The Payment Section – What and Why

Following this simple formula, even the worst salesperson in the world can glide through a walkthrough and book the account at the end.

Your Rules & Regulations

During the walkthrough when you introduce your worksheet is the time you clarify with the client how you run your business.  This conversation lets the client know how far they can push you, and how much they can get away with. 

This is one part of the sales cycle you don’t want to screw up.

In this section we cover: 

  • Standard Rules and Regulations
  • What “Must Have” Rules Go on the Worksheet
  • How to Explain Miscellaneous “Add On” Projects
  • Work Hours
  • Alarm System and Keys and Lockout Fees
  • Scheduling and Cancellations
  • Sick  Policy
  • Satisfaction Guarantee
  • How to Explain Payment and Late Fees
  • The Biggest Secret about Your Rules

After you’ve covered the rules with your prospect, there will be no question who is in charge with how you run your cleaning business.

Why The Rules Apply to You

Lots of cleaning companies run into trouble when they don’t have clear rules in place. So, cleaning techs make up their own rules based on limited information and the resources available to them at the time.

The problem is the outcomes are all over the board and nobody from the client to the boss knows what was promised.

In this section we’ll cover:

  • Why The Rules Apply To You
  • You’re Not a Unicorn and You’re Not Special
  • Why Acting Entitled Will Get Your Fired
  • Why You Don’t Get to Change Rules Once They Are Set
  • What Accountability Has to Do with Scaling
  • What Accountability Has to Do With Referrals
  • The Cost to Your Business of Making Exceptions
