Do you have insurance?
Unfortunately, many companies, and more than likely 100% of individuals for hire do NOT carry liability insurance. Hiring a company that has insurance may add slightly to the cost, but the insurance coverage protects YOU. Maid For You has full insurance to protect you and your home.
Can I trust the Maid and House Cleaners you have sent to my home?
This is really critical. Regardless of who you hire, insist on a criminal background check. We turn down a lot of application each year from house cleaners because of a criminal past. If I would not trust someone in my home, I'm not going to send them to yours.
What if something is broken, damaged, or turns up missing in my home?
This comes back to whether the company carries insurance, the type of people and house cleaning company you are dealing with. No one is happy when these things happen. This is why we run background checks, train our people thoroughly, and carry insurance. But accidents do happen on occasion. Of course we back it up.
What happens if the maid gets hurt on my property?
A legitimate company has insurance. The insurance will cover the medical bills in the event of an on the job injury. If you have hired an unlicensed individual offering house or office cleaning services, you are potentially liable for any medical expenses or damages.
What's the risk of hiring an individual to clean my home?
You may save a little money, but you open yourself to the real risk of a lawsuit in the event an injury occurs on your property. There is no recourse available other than legal if you are not satisfied, or if something is damaged, broken or missing. If you hire an individual and they do not pay the taxes they owe on the money you pay them, YOU can be held liable for the taxes.
Hiring an individual legally makes you an employer, and you are required to file proper documents with the government. See IRS publication 926 Household Employer's Tax Guide for instructions. It is important to check with your insurance agent to ensure you have proper homeowners insurance.
