Please Read the Customer Guidelines!

At Skilled Maids, we are committed to providing you with an exceptional cleaning experience. To achieve this, we have established a set of policies and procedures that ensure fair and consistent service for every client. By adhering to these policies, we can maintain our high standards and provide stable employment for our staff. As a valued client, we kindly ask that you familiarize yourself with and abide by the following policies and procedures.

Please Read the Customer Guidelines!

We value your time and strive to provide the most accurate estimate possible. To achieve this, we ask that you provide us with honest and accurate information about your home at the time of booking. As we do not assess each space before cleaning, the information provided must be as accurate as possible.

If we determine that your home requires more time than originally estimated, we will notify you immediately. At that time, we will extend our time at our current hourly rate or prioritize your cleaning. Additional charges will only apply if the customer has been notified and approved them.

To ensure a smooth cleaning experience, please make sure you are available by phone or email during your service in case we need to contact you.

Preparing for Your Cleaning

To ensure that we can focus on providing detailed and high-quality cleaning, we kindly ask that you pick up and tidy your home as much as possible before our arrival. While we appreciate your desire to help, please refrain from doing any cleaning before we arrive. Our estimated cleaning time is based on actual cleaning and does not include time for tidying.

Creating the Optimal Environment for Your Cleaning Appointment

Please eliminate as many distractions as possible to enable our cleaning technicians to work uninterrupted. We recommend scheduling your cleaning day when there will be fewer people at home, and all rooms are available during your scheduled time.

Special Requests

If you have any special requests or additional service requests, please submit them to the office and not to the cleaning technicians. Please contact us in advance to schedule any additional service and communicate your requests.

Appointment Arrival

We strive to provide excellent service to all our customers, but we are unable to provide specific appointment times. Our technicians are guaranteed to arrive between 8:00 am and 9:00 am for the first appointment of the day and between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm for afternoon appointments. Please note that our estimated arrival window is subject to change due to various factors, including frequency options, schedule changes, and traffic.

We understand the importance of timely service, and we appreciate your understanding in this matter. Our technicians will arrive as soon as possible within the specified arrival window to provide you with the quality service you expect from Skilled  Maids. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our appointment arrival policy, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Accessing Your Home

We recommend our clients provide secured access through electronic door keypads, garage door keypads, or lockboxes secured somewhere on the property. If you choose to leave a door open or a key in a concealed spot, we will only enter with your permission. At Skilled Maids, we do not hold, maintain, or take possession of any property keys for security reasons.

Cancellation and Lockout Policy

At Skilled Maids, we value the time of our employees and clients. Therefore, we honor a firm 48 business hours cancellation policy. If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please do so at least 48 business hours before your scheduled cleaning. This allows us to offer the time slot to other clients. If you cancel or reschedule within the 48-hour window, you will be charged $100  fee to cover lost wages.

Please note that same-day cancellations, inability to access your home upon arrival, or turning our employees away at the door upon arrival will result in a full price of the service fee. This is because we are unable to fill the appointment slot in such a short amount of time.

Rescheduling Policy

To maintain a thorough and consistent cleaning job, we encourage our clients to keep their regularly scheduled cleaning appointments. However, if you need to reschedule, please do so using our appointment reschedule form. This form is required for all rescheduling requests.

Depending on the frequency of your service, additional time may be needed to restore your home to its proper condition on our next visit. Therefore, we charge a skip fee of $25.00, which will be added to your next cleaning.

Please note that rescheduling requests made within the cancellation window (48 hours of the appointment) will result in a cancellation fee (see cancellation policy). However, cleanings rescheduled within the same week of the original cleaning date (within 7 days of the original appointment) will not incur additional charges.


We require payment at the time of service. We accept all major credit cards, and your card on file will be charged on the day of cleaning.

Tipping Policy

Our dedicated cleaning technicians are committed to delivering exceptional service to ensure your satisfaction. Although tipping is not mandatory, it is always appreciated by our hardworking staff. If you choose to leave a cash tip, please ensure it is clearly marked as such. Alternatively, you may add a tip to your credit card payment by contacting our office through a call, text, or email or by filling out the tip your house cleaning technician form.

Please note that we are unable to accept tips in the form of a check, and we cannot accept money that is not marked as a tip.

Recycling Guidelines

We care about the environment and encourage our clients to recycle. We ask that you separate and dispose of your recyclables in accordance with your town’s guidelines before our arrival.


As part of our cleaning process, we will take a few minutes to load the dishwasher to free up the sink for cleaning. Please note that any dishes found in the dishwasher will be presumed to be dirty. If this is not the case, we kindly request that you empty the dishwasher before your scheduled cleaning.

Additionally, any dishes left in the sink will be presumed dishwasher-safe and will be loaded into the dishwasher for cleaning. However, if you have a sink full of dishes that require hand washing, this will be considered an additional service and may incur an additional fee for this add-on service. We will provide you with a quote for any additional services required before starting the cleaning process.


While we welcome pets, their safety and that of our staff is a top priority. We kindly request that you secure your pets in a designated area of your home during the cleaning service.

If your pets are left inside the home during our cleaning, we will do our best to ensure their safety. However, we do not take pets outside, feed them, or clean up after any pet accidents.


If you have any collectibles or expensive objects, please let us know so that we can make a note on your account. We ask that you clean and handle curio cabinets, figurines, glassware, antiques, and items of extreme or sentimental value yourself. Our team members are trained to handle your possessions with care, but we cannot assume responsibility for any damages that may occur during the cleaning process. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us ensure the safety and security of your valuables.

Climate Control

We ask that you ensure the temperature inside your home is set to a comfortable level before we arrive. Our cleaning technicians cannot work in environments that are too hot or too cold as they can be physically uncomfortable and potentially hazardous.

Employee Health and Safety

We prioritize the safety and well-being of our employees while providing high-quality cleaning services to our clients. Therefore, we have a Hazardous and Expertise Policy outlining the list of items and areas that we do not clean due to safety concerns or lack of expertise.

We do not clean animal feces, human blood, bodily fluids, or any hazardous material that could potentially put our employees’ health at risk. Additionally, we do not clean mold, asbestos, or any other harmful substance that requires specialized training or equipment.

We also avoid cleaning areas that cannot be reached with a 2-step ladder, such as high ceilings or hard-to-reach corners. Our cleaning technicians are strictly prohibited from moving heavy items that require more than two people or specialized equipment to move safely.

Please note that this list is not exhaustive and may be subject to change based on our ongoing evaluation of safety and expertise. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in helping us maintain a safe working environment for our staff while providing you with the best possible cleaning services.

Damages & Breakage

If we cause damage or breakage to an item, we will inform you immediately and work out a fair solution for repair or replacement within reason. If you notice any breakage or damage that we may have missed, please report it to us within 24 hours.

Please note that Skilled  Maids cannot assume liability for items that were broken or damaged due to unstable bases or improper attachment or securing to the wall.

Non-Solicitation of Employees

At Skilled Maids, we invest significant time and resources in finding, screening, hiring, and training our employees to provide the best service to our clients. We take pride in our low employee turnover rate and therefore do not allow our employees to engage in a working relationship directly with any customer for 24 months after employment termination. We kindly request that our clients do not solicit our employees for hire directly. If this policy is breached, a finder’s fee of $5,000 will be assessed if any client chooses to hire a cleaning technician employed by Skilled Maids on an individual basis for private work. Thank you for helping us maintain our success by respecting our non-solicitation policy.


We may take before and after photos during your initial cleaning appointment and move-in/out cleaning services. These photos allow us to ensure your satisfaction and meet our high standards for cleaning. In some cases, we may also take photos during recurring appointments if the home is not in its usual condition. These photos are used for training, proof of our work performance, and promoting our quality standards. We never take photos of personal items such as family photos or jewelry. If you do not want us to take photos of work areas in your home, please notify our office before your cleaning appointment to sign a waiver of liability. Please note that our satisfaction guarantee may not apply if our cleaning professionals are unable to demonstrate cleaning progress in your home to our office team.

Social Media Photos

At Skilled Maids, we take pride in showcasing the exceptional cleaning services we provide to our clients. With your permission, we may take before and after photos to post on our social media pages or website. We understand the importance of privacy and assure you that we will not expose any personal items, such as family photos or names, in these photos. We will only showcase the areas we have cleaned and any furniture or decor that may have been moved for the cleaning process.

If you do not wish to have any photos taken of your home, please let us know before your cleaning appointment. We will always respect your wishes and your privacy. Our goal is to provide the best cleaning experience possible while maintaining your trust and respect. Thank you for considering allowing us to share our cleaning successes with others.

Quality Control and Client Feedback

At Amazing Maids, we value your feedback and communication to ensure the highest level of quality in our services.

We strive to address any issues or concerns that are important to you promptly. Our employees take great pride in their work and want to be informed if you are dissatisfied with a service. We ask that you kindly use our feedback surveys each time your home is cleaned to help us maintain ongoing communication with our office and your cleaning technician. Constant communication is the best way to ensure consistency of services. Thank you for your feedback and for helping us to provide the best possible service to you.
