Looking for maid service Portland? It could be because you’re pressed for time—cleaning is just one thing too many with work or kids. It could just be because you hate cleaning but also hate living in filth. No matter the reason, here are some things to consider when looking for maid service in Portland.
You’ll want to find out if you must keep cleaning supplies on hand and leave out your vacuum, broom and mop. It’s best to hire a maid service that provides all of the cleaning tools and supplies so you don’t have to worry about wear and tear on your equipment and keeping track of what you have on-hand. Look for a company that will take care of all this so home cleaning is hassle-free for you!
You want a company that has a loyal staff of cleaning professionals and that will send the same smiling faces to your door each time. Why? When the same team cleans for you again and again, they get to know your home and your preferences. Retraining someone on what you like is annoying. Look for a company that offers consistency in who they send!
You want a company that offers competitive rates, lets you know up front what they will charge, what that charge covers. The adage “you get what you pay for” holds true for house cleaning services and the cheapest rates will get you the unsavory service, so look for quality service at reasonable rates. Look for a company that offers a free in-home estimate and gives you a firm price up-front!
You’ll want to agree on how the maid service will access your home. If you live in a gated community or have a security system, you will have to provide them codes to get in. Once you get to know your cleaning company, you may want them to come while you are at work or running errands so you come home to a clean house. Look for a company that’s bonded, so you know you can trust them!
You never want anything to happen to your home, but occasionally a lamp may get bumped and broken or a mistake may happen. You don’t want to be left paying for this. By choosing a maid service that is fully insured, you can relax knowing that in the off chance that something does happen, you won’t be out of pocket. Look for a company that’s insured, so you know you’re protected!
You want a company that is well respected and well-reviewed so you know that you’re hiring a quality maid service. Look to independent review sites like Yelp or Angie’s List for reassurance that you’re making a good choice in who you allow into your home. Positive reviews on the company’s website are a good sign, but third party reviews are better. Look for a company that’s highly rated!

You want a company that guarantees its work. If something is missed or you think something has not been done to your expectations, a good maid service will apologize and make it right immediately with a credit to your bill or a redo of the service in question. This shouldn’t happen often, but when it does, you want it corrected. Look for a company that offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee!
