Why not use an independent maid?

Maid Affordable has several advantages over using an independent maid. We take care of employment taxes and social security for our cleaning technicians so you don't have to. We are reliable with our appointments and can substitute a technician if yours is out for the day. We provide workers compensation for our staff which means they are covered by our insurance rather than yours if they get hurt while cleaning your home. We are a legitimate business with insurance and background checks so you know you can trust us. We do regular background checks and never employ someone we wouldn't trust in our own homes.

Why is it important to use a company that is insured and bonded?

You will feel at ease knowing that in the event something is damaged in your home, or someone is injured in your home, we have coverage.

What if I'm not satisfied with the cleaning?

Our work is guaranteed! We take pride in our work and want you to feel great about the service. Call us within 24 hours and we will return to correct the problem. We are receptive to feedback so you don't have to feel uncomfortable voicing your concerns about getting what you pay for. We are proud to say that we have thousands of satisfied clients.

Who will you send to clean my home?

We take pride in the excellent team we have. Our friendly cleaning technicians are very trustworthy individuals with great interpersonal skills. All of Maid Affordable cleaning staff have passed our thorough, nationwide criminal background checks, drug testing, motor vehicle report screening, reference check and employment screening. Additionally, cleaning technicians become Certified Maid Affordable Cleaning Technicians upon completion of our thorough training process. We always try to send the same cleaning technician or team for recurring cleans when possible.

Do I have to be home?

Many of our clients like to be home the first couple of times we clean their homes, however, we are comfortable working with or without you home. Your preference is ours.

What about the key?

Most of our clients use a lock box that can be hung on the door or in another place outside of the home with the key locked inside. The cost of a lockbox is $20 and we will deliver to your home free of charge. The box is yours to keep.. Other arrangements can be made prior to service.

Do I need cleaning supplies?

We bring all of our own cleaning supplies and equipment. We recommend and prefer to use your furniture polish and vacuum cleaner. The polish is then specific to your preferences (shiny, dull) and your furniture surfaces. If you do not have furniture polish, we will use ours. Even top of the line vacuum cleaners and HEPA filters do not eliminate the possibility of bringing dust into your home, however using a vacuum that is exclusive to your home ensures no outside dust is brought in. Our professional cleaning technicians carry vacuum cleaners that are well maintained for homes where none is available or the vacuum is broken.

What service should I start with for one-time or regular service?

For best results we recommend our top to bottom "Dream Clean". This clean is intense and thorough and allows us to "wash down" your home before beginning routine maintenance (weekly, biweekly, monthly). We also offer a general "Checklist Clean" which is a recommended starting point for homes with minimal build up.

What is included?

For each clean we follow a checklist. The actual checklists are located under the Services tab. You provide the list when using our "Hourly Service".

How do I schedule an appointment?

Scheduling is easy. Call us at (210) 372-9970, click the Book Now button, Text us at 210-878-7743 or email us at maidaffordable@maidaffordable.com when you need a clean. We offer regular schedules with no contract. We do clean on weekends and after hours as well. Just let us know what date you are looking for and we'll get you started!

How does payment work?

The majority of our clients pay via credit card. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. This is typically the most convenient method for everyone. We will, however, gladly accept checks if that is easier for you or your preference. Payment is due prior to, or at the time of, each service.

What if I have to cancel my appointment?

Please provide 24 hours advance notice of any appointment changes. Simply call, email, or text us and we’ll make the change to your scheduled appointment. We also understand that events occur which make it difficult to keep appointments at times. If less than 24 hours notice is given, a cancellation of $10 per maid (max $40) will be charged and paid out to the maid(s).

Should I tip?

Tipping is not expected but is appreciated for a job well done.

What if something is broken?

Maid Affordable works very hard to protect your belongings, however damage does periodically occur. We will attempt to repair or replace broken or damaged items up to $500 per loss. For this reason, we request that you stow any high value or irreplaceable/sentimental items. If something is broken in your home we will notify you the day of service. Unreported damage must be reported within 24 hours of time it is discovered.

What about my pets?

Many of our clients have pets that we’ve come to know and love. We are comfortable working around animals but rely on your experience with your family pet when it comes to how the pets should be handled. Even the friendliest pets may feel territorial when a stranger is in the home. Aggressive dogs and cats must be secured.

How do I sign up for regular service?

Simply contact us to set up your recurring clean. There are no contracts that will bind you to a certain number of cleans or length of time. We’ll agree on a date and time over the phone or email and will keep returning on that pattern unless you call to move or cancel an appointment or services.

What time will the cleaning technician arrive?

We offer both AM and PM appointments. Our cleaning technician(s) will arrive between 8-9am for AM appointments and between 12-2pm for PM appointments. We work hard to accommodate your schedule so if you need an earlier or later appointment just let us know and we’ll find an agreeable time for everyone. We clean homes Monday-Friday. We also offer Saturdays on a limited basis. Our Saturday AM appointment arrival time is between 8-10am and PM appointment arrival time is between 12-3pm.
