Marla

Client Care Specialist, Maids by Trade

Varlaine of Glendale was impressed by the cleanliness of her home after it had a deep cleaning; so she left a 5 star review on Yelp. These results were obtained thanks to the cleaning crew’s hard work, dedication, and professionalism. There are many benefits to hiring professional house cleaning services; and the experience Varlaine had with Maids by Trade, truly confirms that, homeowners should be more selective when choosing a house cleaning company.

Making the best of it…

 

Cleanliness is Accomplished with Regular Cleaning Appointments

 

The first thing you need to do, is call our office to setup an assessment of your home and its cleaning needs. Upon performing a walk-through, Maids by Trade provides with an estimate for a first cleaning and ongoing recurring cleaning appointments. This is what you can do to make the best of the setup process:

1. Request a Quote Online or Call Us

Use our office locator to find a Maids by Trade office near your home. You can also call our office for faster service; all you need to do, is provide a few details about your home and we can give you a rough estimate over the phone. Of course, an in-home estimate will provide you with a more accurate quote for service.

 

2. Declutter & Organize if Needed

Remember, you’re hiring a reputable company that pays employees every minute they are on the clock; so that means that we have to charge you for any time they spend in your home. Make the best of it. Have the areas you need us to clean free of clutter, so that the team can focus on the scrubbing and cleaning of surfaces. If you don’t mind paying for the extra time needed to help you with decluttering and organizing of a few rooms, or the entire house, we can do that too. Just let us know in advance, and we will allocate all time needed to get the best results. Read this post with ideas for decluttering.

 

3. Be Reasonable & Understanding

In order to get as much “dirt” out of your house, we need to create a bit of a “mess” first, this means we have to empty some surfaces to be able to clean completely and place those items on other surfaces, and sometimes on the floor. The level of cleanliness our team accomplishes, does take a great deal of dedication. So, please understand that the team needs clearance and space, to be able to work freely; move and place cleaning supplies and tools around your house during while the cleaning is done. Use your now free time. Go do your errands, have lunch or have a cup of coffee; and let us do our thing. You will like the end result.

 

4. Provide Feedback and Spread the Word

Upon your return, and immediately after your house reaches the cleanliness level you requested, we need to go over a few details about the cleaning. That’s the best time for you to point out anything you feel might need more elbow grease. Just let us know; we will take of it. Please provide feedback to the team or office, and keep communication open. You might like reading 3 Reasons to Review House Cleaning Services.
