5 Questions to ask yourself Before Hiring a Maid


We all get busy with work, meetings, school, kids, sports, and extracurricular activities. There are days where we can leave home early in the morning and not return home until after dinner time, and the last thing on your mind is cleaning. Housework is something that needs to be done on a daily basis, and sometimes there just isn’t the time in the day to do it. You may be considering hiring a maid service to help you keep up with the housework. Before you hire out, here are 5 things you should ask yourself first.

• How often do I need someone to come to my place to clean? Maids can come daily, weekly, biweekly, or even monthly. How often they come is based on your needs. It is important you decide how often you will need extra help before you hire someone to come out.
• What areas or things do you need help cleaning? Are you looking for someone to do a whole house cleaning or are you just looking for help to keep up with weekly chores such as cleaning the bathrooms, scrubbing down the kitchen, vacuuming, and mopping. You’ll need to be specific with your expectations on what you want so both you and the maid you hire know exactly what you want.
• What are you willing to pay? The more times a maid comes and there they do the more it will cost.
• Do the maids undergo a background check before they are sent to your home or do you need to pay for one? A background check is very important. These people will be coming into your home, perhaps at times when you’re not present. If they are going to be around your precious items and given access to your house you’ll probably want them to have passed a background check so that you can have peace of mind with them in your home.
• Do you want to hire a company or an independent contractor? Both can be great options but you’ll want to explore both avenues carefully to decide which one is the best fit for you and your family.
