FAQs

Housekeeping Maid Easy takes every possible precaution in hiring the most qualified trustworthy individuals available. A criminal history background check is performed on every potential employee along with a drug screen. Each employee is bonded and insured and covered by worker’s compensation insurance. This means that if they should have an accident while cleaning your home you are not responsible for their medical bills. Many homeowners are not aware of their potential personal liability for work related injuries if the person or company they hire does not carry this insurance. We also take care of all employee taxes.
No, Housekeeping Maid Easy is a local company owned and operated by members of your community. Because we are locally owned our prices are more affordable and we are able to be more flexible when meeting your specialized needs.

Most of our customers are not home when we clean their homes, and this is our preferred cleaning scenario. In the current pandemic we realize people may be home during cleanings, if so we ask that you are on separate level from our staff when they are cleaning. If you must pass through an area or be in an area our staff are in please wear a mask, as they will also always have on for you. We keep detailed information about each client's home cleaning or special instructions and information regarding pets, access, and alarm codes so our staff will have all the information they need to clean your home.
Most customers give us a key to their home or a code to the garage. If you choose not to leave a key and we are unable to access your home for a scheduled cleaning, you will be assessed a lockout fee of $50.00.
All keys are marked for identification with a code # (no address or customer name is used) and locked in a safe when not issued to the cleaning supervisor for the day of your cleaning. Only our top management staff has access to the safe.
Pets are not a problem. But we do need to know if you have them and we would like to have the names for reference. If you have large and/or aggressive pets, we ask that you secure them while we are cleaning your home.
Yes. It would be appreciated if items were picked up off the floor and dressers and counters were not piled with too much clutter before we arrive. This allows the cleaning staff to clean more thoroughly. Also, please secure cash, jewelry and other small valuables. We do not wash dishes; however, if the dishwasher is unloaded we would be happy to place any dirty dishes in the dishwasher. We also ask in the summer months if you could set your air conditioner at an appropriate temperature. In the winter months we would appreciate that sidewalks and driveways are cleared so the cleaning people are able to gain access to your home. If for some reason you do not want a particular room cleaned, please just leave a note or close the door of that particular room you do not want cleaned and we will honor that request.

Because of the nature of our business our staff is required to touch virtually everything in your home. We are as careful as possible; however, if something does get damaged while cleaning your home, our staff are instructed to call our office at once and to leave a note to you advising you of the incident. The office will also follow-up with a phone call to determine the best course of action to take. In the event an item is damaged or broken we reserve the option of repair or replacement. A dollar value of “one-of-a-kind” items destroyed must be demonstrated in order that a settlement may be determined. Housekeeping Maid Easy is not responsible for damage due to faulty or improper installation of items. Please inform us if any items in your home require this type of attention. Examples would be; broken or improperly installed blinds, tiles, curtain rods, loose carpet etc. The most tragic form of damage is that of something irreplaceable either monetary or sentimentally valued. Rather than be sorry, the safest way to protect these items is to store them away on the cleaning day, or instruct us not to clean such items.
We accept checks, cash, Visa and Mastercard but our preference is a check. We ask that you leave the payment on the kitchen counter. Receipts will be emailed to you if requested. If you do not have an email, we will mail you a quarterly statement upon request. A $30.00 fee will be assessed for any checks returned by your bank. All prior balances must be cleared, before the next service.

For regular cleaning clients, once set (see Customer Service Agreement for possible exceptions), the fee will be the same each time we clean for up to one year. Each year we perform pricing reviews on a client by client basis, to consider cost of living adjustments, and time needed to clean to the client’s standards.
We begin your service with an initial "detail clean" of your home. This first cleaning is similar to a "catch up" clean or a spring clean. There are a variety of first time tasks performed during this clean that require extra time and effort. There is a big difference between "old" dirt and "new" dirt. If we don't get rid of it the first time, keeping your home truly spotless with not be possible. It is not uncommon for us to spend two to four times longer than it will take on regular, repeat maintenance cleaning.
No problem. All we ask is that you contact us no later than noon the day before. Cancellations later than noon the day before are subject to a $50 cancellation fee. Please keep in mind that each day's cleanings are scheduled the afternoon before and that if you cancel later than noon the day before a scheduled cleaning, that your cleaning team may not have a full day's work.
We will contact you approximately one month ahead of time to arrange an alternate day for that week. The Holiday’s Observed by our office are New Years day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Tipping is not expected, but certainly welcome! Leaving a tip is a great way to show your appreciation for your house cleaner and they do prefer tips in cash. You can also add a tip to your account as a one time tip or recurring, and you can even do so after the cleaning has occurred. For customers who tip, the average amount is typically $10 or $20 per cleaning. An occasional note to the team when they impress you will mean a lot. Also, we pay your cleaning team bonuses based on your feedback, so please always respond to the email follow if you can.
