How We Rate Maid Service Companies
There are a large number of maid service companies competing for your attention online, and deciding which to call can be overwhelming, especially if you’re stressed out with a busy schedule. To help you choose the one that’s right for you, we’ve chosen some of the best companies and performed a systematic review by rating each company in four separate categories to come up with an overall score.
You want the most reliable possible company in charge of keeping your home clean and organized regularly. For that reason, we look into each company’s history and consider how long they’ve been in business, whether you’re likely to be dealing with a single company or a franchise with multiple independent businesses, and whether the company has national reach.
Features & Services Provided
What services does the company provide? Do they use natural, child and pet safe products? How well do they train their teams? Do they provide a guarantee? We look into all these different aspects and rate them on the services they offer.
Customer Support & Reviews
We take the legwork out of looking at online customer reviews by reading a wide sample and summarizing them for you. We look in particular at three important categories for maid services: punctuality—whether the cleaning crew shows up on time as promised, persistence—whether you can rely on the company to take care of your home, and effectiveness—whether a company was able to completely clean your home and stay consistent in their quality. We get a sense of the “word on the street” about the company, and turn it into a rating.
Maid service costs vary widely between size of house, how often you need your home or business cleaned, recurring cleaning or one time projects. This makes it hard to standardize pricing, but we look out for outliers. We also look at whether the company facilitates smart shopping by providing free estimates, whether they require you to sign an annual contract, and what sort of refunds and guarantees they offer to back up their work.
