Do proper introduction

If they are not wearing name tags, ask them, as well as make you introduce yourself. It is important to ensure that the cleaning crew has a task list. If they don’t have one, draw one up before the job starts.
Treat them as professionals
These are professionals who know what they are doing. It is easy to look down on cleaning as some menial job that can be handled by anyone. This is far from true.

They have the task list and they have arranged the tasks as per each crew member’s abilities. Let them handle the job the best way they know how. You can keep an eye on delicate objects that need special handling and offer your advice on how to do the handling, but it will be disastrous to micromanage them.
