Q: What should I expect from my housecleaner?
The first and foremost important factor in my relationship is TRUST. Your personal belongings are valuable. We will treat your home as if it were our own. Got It Maid retains a security deposit from each registered housecleaner for your protection. We use extreme caution when adding a new professional to our referral registry.
Our cleaners have a contractual agreement.Should a liability occur in your home due to your cleaner's error, he/she is responsible to resolve the matter directly with you. Please work with your housecleaner toward an equitable solution. The agency is not responsible, nor liable for acts of the independent housecleaner.
Secondly, our referred housecleaners are EXPERIENCED. Experience allows us to give you real value for your dollar. When an experienced housecleaner enters your home, he/she already has an established routine, which eliminates extra steps and backtracking.
Q: What is my role when I contract a Got It Maid housecleaner?
COMMUNICATION is key. Housecleaning is as individual as you and me. By letting the agent and housecleaner know your particular expectations and needs, we can serve you best, If the referred house cleaner does not make the perfect "match", simply call the office and we will accommodate any recommended changes.
A cleaning PRIORITY LIST is a good communication tool. Please keep in mind a realistic expectation for the hours of service agreed upon, as we price by the hour, not the job. Should your home be cleaned by a team, remember the changes are based on the service hours provided by each housecleaner.
Your list could also include instructions for looking up, location of cleaning supplies and vacuum, and special circumstances in your home. We appreciate this information since it takes out some of the guess work.
