Thinking about hiring someone to perform house cleaning services for you in Charlotte NC or Rock Hill? Not all maid services in the Carolinas are created equal. Of course we like to think we are among the best, but if you’re looking for some general criteria by which to rate local house cleaning companies, here’s our best attempt at an unbiased review of what characterizes a maid you’d want to hire.

#1: Heroic Cleaning Services

How do we define “heroic”? It’s simple: a heroic house cleaner is one who comes to your rescue in your time of need. Cleaning is a difficult business, and not many people enjoy doing it. What makes a superhero a superhero? They rescue you from difficult times! A heroic house cleaning company will rescue you from having to do any of the dirty work you hate doing by showing up and taking care of every small detail.

As an example, let’s say you have a situation where your septic tank backs up and your bathroom floor is covered in dirty sewage. (This actually happened to one of our recent clients!) You certainly don’t want to be a crappy situation like that (pun intended), but unfortunately, it happens sometimes. A heroic cleaning service in Charlotte NC would be happy to take care of this for you. In fact, because house cleaning is a passion of theirs, they’ll even be passionate about doing so. Can you imagine someone who’s passionate about cleaning up sewage? The right house cleaning company will be!

#2: Good Reviews. 

A good cleaning company will have a good reputation. You can usually find out all you need to know by doing a Google search and seeing what comes up. If they have great reviews online, the next step would be to call them and develop a relationship. Yes, that’s right. You should absolutely build a relationship with your house cleaner. In fact, that brings us to our next point.

#3: Professional & Courteous. 

You don’t want to invite someone into your home if they are rude and unprofessional. As you begin speaking with the maid service that you’re thinking about hiring, it’s a good time to gage their character and reliability. Get to know them. Ask questions. Interview them! You’re inviting them into your living space, which is very personal, so you want to make sure they can be trusted. Hopefully, you’re a good judge of character and can determine from the initial conversation if it’s going to be a good fit.

#4: Properly Licensed & Insured. 

This is very important. Hiring a Charlotte maid service who is not properly licensed and insured could mean that you wind up being liable if something happens while they’re on the job. In order to prevent personal liability, make sure the company you decide to do business with carries all of the essential certifications required by your state.

#5: Competitively Priced. 

Now this is important to remember: the lowest price is not always going to be the best value. However, you don’t want to hire someone who is going to charge you an arm and a leg for house cleaning services, so we do recommend shopping around to ensure that you get the best bang for your buck. See this post for more info on the cost to hire a maid services in Charlotte NC.
