During a research project, we came across another post about the regular maid service experience and expectations by those of other companies and individuals. As a matter of fact, this is something that we have heard from housekeepers who have worked with us in the past who did not continue with us because this just isn't the way LA Maid Pros runs things. It is very common for these "others" to expect the following from their clients:
So, as we take a step back and review these different points to a standard maid services expectations. It is mind blowing to think that the vast majority of cleaning services expect a client to clean their own home before our maids show up.
Here at LA Maid Pros, we are here to serve our clients in the most convenient way. We understand that not everyone wants to clean up those books and toys. Not everyone wants to do their laundry because that stuff piles up! And what makes it most frustrating for many people is that it's a constant repeat of the exact same thing that is going to get messed up again. Especially if you have busy lives with school, work, children, these tasks can be overwhelming, and we are here to help! We would NEVER ask a client to clean before you intend to order services for cleaning, its a contradicting expectation.
LA Maid Pros offers many different packages that range from basic cleaning to deep cleaning which do cover those standard traditional cleaning, up to our hourly packages which can be molded to anyone's house chore needs! Most importantly, all of these packages and rates are listed on our website for anyone to see at any time. It is important to us that our clients know exactly what to expect and have the option to pick the package that will work out best for them. In our experience, we have found that most of our clients book the hourly cleaning service which allows the client to build their own package, so to speak. Now, even though these "other" maid service companies/agencies/individuals believe that you can't give a client a price without doing an "in-home" quote, we believe that everyone is entitled to know exactly what we offer, for how much without wasting time from the clients day to give a price/offer that might not even work out.
To wrap up this article. How to get the best experience out of your cleaning service? Make sure to look through all the different package options. If you choose to go with an hourly package, its a good idea to go through your home and leave a list so you can make sure you don't forget to go over anything with your pro. And remember, we're here to help!
