Hiring a Maid Service 101

hiring a maid service to clean dishes

Everyone needs a little help now and then. Leading a busy life is tough when the mess starts to build up, and sometimes you gotta call in the cavalry! Cleaning services are great for putting your mind at ease and getting those extra things done around the house. Understanding the process of hiring a maid service and following a few basic rules can help things along.

Know Your Situation

A good cleaning service knows that every home is different and will customize the job to suit your needs. To save time, make sure you know some basic information when you call.

What cleaning supplies do you already have?

How many rooms are in your house? Bedrooms? Bathrooms? What type of kitchen do you have?


How messy are things on a scale of 1 to 10? 1 being already clean, and just needing deep-cleaning and sanitizing, and 10 meaning serious clutter or even hazardous situations.

These things will determine the amount of time and people necessary to complete the job, as well as the type of supplies that need to be brought to your location.

Know What You Want

Think about how much cleaning you want done, what things you want cleaned and what you don’t. Do you want a general cleaning or a deep spring cleaning? Do you want your belongings organized for you or do you like them placed in a certain way?

When hiring a maid service, always make sure to specify which things you don’t want moved or cleaned if they’re of extreme value to you, sentimental or otherwise.

Never Settle for Subpar

Don’t forget to inspect the work closely once a job is complete. If you’re unhappy with something make sure you call the office immediately and let them know. Our company offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so if anything isn’t up to your standards we’ll re-do it free of charge while the cleaning specialist is still at your location.

Don’t Forget the Tip

Service industry professionals always appreciate a tip for the work they’ve done. Remember to give your cleaning specialist a tip before they leave, or you can always leave one over the phone if it’s more convenient.

Simple as That!

We’ve been in the business for over thirty years, so when it comes to cleaning homes we understand the process inside and out. You can call our team to schedule an appointment, and they’ll walk you through it from start to finish.
