Tips on Hiring a Maid Service Tired from trying to keep the house together while cooking meals and driving kids to activities. Not only will hiring a maid service reduce your stress, it will keep your house cleaner which will make you and your family healthier and happier. However, how can you decide which maid service to choose?

Here are some tips on hiring a maid service: Are they bonded and insured?

Sometimes people make the mistake of thinking that all companies have insurance against accidents and protection against theft. In fact, many independent maids and maid services rely on you to The Best Richmond Maid Servicesupply insurance, but your homeowners insurance might not cover all situations. When hiring a maid service, look for an established company like The Maids Richmond Virginia which can guarantee their employees are bonded and insured.

Are all employees documented? YES!

Many maid services cut costs by hiring undocumented workers. Avoid problems by hiring a maid service which checks to be sure all of their maids are fully in compliance with United States law, like The Maids Richmond Virginia.

Do they pay taxes, social security and workman’s compensation?

A maid service may seem more inexpensive until you find out that you have to pay the government more than you bargained for. A locally owned franchise like The Maids Richmond Virginia includes all taxes, social security and other costs in the regular service agreement. You won’t have the hassle of extra paperwork or hidden costs.

How are employees hired, screened and trained?

When you are hiring a maid service, you want someone you can trust in your home. Does the maid service you are considering check employee references? Do they have a criminal background check? Do they hire their own employees or use subcontractors? If you are hiring a maid service which uses subcontractors, they may not provide any maid training. At The Maids Richmond Virginia, our maids are not only screened for reliability, criminal history and cleaning knowledge, they are given extensive training in research-based cleaning methods. Moreover, they are given periodic re-training to keep them current.

Who supplies the equipment and cleaning solutions?

Another way some maid services try to cut costs is having the employer supply everything. However, most homeowners don’t have top-of-the line cleaning equipment and supplies. When you are hiring a maid service like The Maids Richmond Virginia, you will get the most technologically advanced cleaning available. Our backpack vacuums can reach under furniture and in corners unlike traditional vacuums, and their HEPA filters get out more allergens and dirt. In addition, our exclusive cleaning formulas use bio-based ingredients which eliminate staph, E-coli and other bacteria using non-pathogenic environmental isolates which imitate the way nature cleans itself.

What sort of references are you given?

A reliable company will be able to provide customer references to help you in hiring a maid service you can trust. You should ask whether the customer recommends this maid service. Are they enthusiastic about the way they are treated by the employees and the company? Our customers at The Maids Richmond Virginia often tell us that we are the first company whose maid services cleaned their home completely. Hiring a maid service takes time and effort. Make sure you ask the right questions the first time.

What sort of customer guarantee is offered?

A company that knows they have a quality service can happily offer a customer satisfaction guarantee. Be sure you know how you can contact the company in case you have any concerns about your cleaning.

How flexible are cleaning schedules?

Is the company flexible? If they have an employee who is sick, will they cancel your cleaning? If you are hiring a maid service from a larger, team service company like The Maids Richmond Virginia, you can be assured your cleaning will happen on schedule even if one member is absent. Furthermore, a larger company is often more flexible about changing your scheduled cleaning if you need a different day.

The Best Richmond Maid Service

Does the company have surveys that you can check? Will you have an opportunity to give feedback? Do they have periodic checks on their employees? When hiring a maid service, you want a company who cares about quality control and improvement.

Our happy Clients

I have been a customer for almost two years.  I am so impressed with the service and professionalism of the cleaning service provided by The Maids.  I started with them when my husband and I both had cancer & treatments and couldn't keep up with the housework.  They come in once a month, sanitize the bathrooms and do an amazing job

This company provides excellent cleaning services, and I highly recommend them even though their pricing and punctuality aren't the best.   Knowing that one room needed special cleaning attention, I talked to several companies before choosing this firm, and hired them knowing their pricing was a little high but believing they had the ability to do a high quality job.   They sent

Wonderfull!   I had them clean my friend's house just before her wedding. It was my wedding present to her and she loved it. She said she'd never seen the house this clean in all the time they lived there. They were very happy about having one less thing to worry about in their wedding planning and the house was sparkling. I'll

The ladies showed up as a team of four in a company car, all wearing uniforms. The team leader came up and introduced herself, and they started work right away. All the ladies seemed to have a separate task, and quickly went about it. I decided to stay while they did the cleaning, because I am a little leery of who

I've been very happy with the service I've received from The Maids, both in my current home and previously in an apartment on the West End. The Maids bring a four-person cleaning team and crank through my home in about an hour. The cleaning is always very consistent and I've never noticed any corners cut. The Maids are a bit pricier
