Do you have a senior citizen discount?

Looking for senior discounts on maid service? Each You’ve Got MAIDS office has a senior citizen discount on housekeeping for the asking, but you do have to ask for it at the time of the estimate. Don’t worry if you didn’t because it probable that the estimator noted a senior home owners status and adjusted the price without mentioning it.

After the initial clean, a home with one or two senior citizens is much easier for our maids to maintain than the average home and that is why we can give senior citizens a maid service discount. It’s based in fairness. Call your local office today or click here to initiate an estimate online.

Do I need to supply cleaning products?


You’ve Got MAIDS Clients expect our uniformed housekeepers to bring all the cleaning equipment and supplies. Think about it. If a maid service wanted to skimp on vacuums & cleaning solutions, you have to question the other places they are cutting corners. Like paying payroll taxes to protect you from the IRS. Or paying workers compensation insurance to protect you from personal injury attorneys.

When do I pay? Do you take credit cards?

Payment is due at time of service. It is You’ve Got MAIDS policy to obtain credit card authorization for the initial cleaning and we do keep that information secured in our encrypted computer system. Should you ever forget to leave payment, the card would be charged at the end of day. We accept cash, checks and most credit cards. The majority of our Clients pay with a credit card.

Is this profitable? Making your customers happy is always profitable, even if we need to pay out a couple of maid hours recleaning an area some independent maids might argue is already clean. That’s why people hire us…they want a professional relationship. Less ego, less emotions, more results! Please contact your nearest office to learn more about our amazing home cleaning services.

What's the maid service cost benefit analysis?


Who pays the house cleaners payroll taxes?

Tax Season Begins

As we enter into the tax season, it’s important to be informed on as much as possible. Missteps, even small ones, can be costly. The Nanny tax can apply to any worker you hire for a service over a certain amount. Make sure your informed of how and what the Nanny Tax is.

Do you run criminal background checks?

Maid Service Criminal Background Screening

Why should my maid service be bonded?

Choosing a qualified Maid Service is critical to maintaining the safety, security & health of your family & home. Enlightened consumers recognize that Safety & Security need to be the first criteria for hiring a residential cleaning company. Cleaning toilets & showers are important, but they should be further down your pre-qualifying checklist than whether or not your maid service is running criminal background checks on the people who will have access to your home.

Licensed A real company will have met the local governmental requirements to operate a business. This impacts Clients indirectly, as it is more of a tax than anything else. Being licensed validates the company, indicating that the maid service is legally operating in their municipality. If the maid service you are considering is not licensed (this cost $100-$170 a year)…it most doesn’t hasn’t invested in Third Party Bonding or Workers Compensation Insurance either (roughly $15,000 to $30,000 a year).

Bonded There are two kinds of bonding. Bonding is a general liability insurance that also covers dishonest acts. First Party Bonding protects a company from its own employees, and has no value to you, the maid service Customer. Third Party Bonding is the important insurance, as it protects you, the maid service Customer, from the negligence or dishonesty of the maid services employees.

Workers Compensation is the next pre-qualifier that need to be looked into before hiring a professional maid service.

What if my maid trips on my sidewalk?

What happens when your independent maids slips and falls outside of your home? It will most likely be a case for the courts. This video highlights a independent maid who had served the same family, one morning a week, for 18 years. If this maid had worked for a legitimate company, her employer would have covered her with workers comp insurance, insulating the homeowner from risk.

How do you differentiate a Independent Contractor from a Domestic Employee? It goes to control. If the homeowner controls the day a independent maid works, her duties on the job, and supplies her with the tools she uses to clean the home, that Independent Maid is really an Employee of that household. Even if she only works a couple of hours a week.

When you have employees, even domestic employees, you need to carry workers compensation insurance because your homeowners insurance will not cover you.

Will I always have the same maids?

Many maid services will promise this to earn your business. We sincerely say that we’ll do our best. We will bend over backward if needed!

It’s our goal is to send you the same house cleaning Supervisor every time. We assign a Supervisor to your account, and this changes only under extraordinary circumstances. It’s Supervisors job to keep you happy with the maids service and ensure that your home is cleaned consistently to your specifications. The turnover amongst our Supervisor is exceptionally low.

Can I hire your maids directly?

If you are searching for a full time domestic maid/housekeeper, please employ us to find the best candidate. You tell us what qualities you require, and we do everything else. We will interview, do background screening, illegal substance screening, a criminal background check, and much more. We have helped many Clients find the right housekeeper.

Our referral fee is $2995.00 or 20% of their 1st years’ salary, whichever is higher for any present or past You’ve Got MAIDS staff member introduced to you by You’ve Got MAIDS for any home-related service.

We’ve invested heavily in attracting, training and retaining quality employees. It would be unfair competition if a Client solicited or employed a past or present You’ve Got MAIDS employee to work for them directly or indirectly in any capacity whatsoever. Our Clients agree that if they break this agreement they will immediately pay us our referral fee plus any other associated costs, including, but not limited to legal fees.

What about my pet's waste?

We love our clients & our house cleaners. Our goal is to provide Great Customer Service…it starts with having the best maids! There is a high turnover in this industry, which goes hand in hand with job dissatisfaction. We want long term relationships with our clients and with our maids. Good relationships require healthy boundaries.

The following policy has as much to do with loving our clients as it does with respecting the dignity of our maids:

For health and sanitary issues, our maids will not handle any type of human or animal waste, or bodily fluids.

What is a maid hour?

What is a Maid Hour you ask? Exactly that! Let’s consider 8 maid hours:

it’s 1 lonesome maid for 8 hours,

a terrific team of 2 for 4 hours each,

4 hard working professional maids for 2 hours each,

or 8 healthy housekeepers for 1 hour each.

Our home cleaners aren’t cheaper by the dozen…12 maids would scrub and polish for 40 minutes.
