They seemed cheery and happy to help. The setup was quick and easy as far as the customer service side. They were well spoken and knowledgeable about what they offered. They did a good job. Things were cleaned, but it could've been better. Things were slightly disorganized but as far as cleanliness goes it was good. I would rely on the service to clean again. They showed up on time and they didn't take longer than expected. It was pretty efficient. I think there could've been more perks for the price that I paid. But overall I would say it was worth the money. But a little extras would go a long way in making a loyal customer.

Very helpful. They made sure that I would be satisfied with the service that I requested. They were very accurate with what their services would cost and sent people that could complete the cleaning service in a competent manner and in a timely fashion. The cleaning service performed a thorough cleaning and did it in a timely fashion. They were courteous and did not spend their time talking. My place was sparkly clean when completed. The cleaning service was reliable. They showed up on time and did their work in a timely manner. Very competent and trustworthy. I did not have to redirect them at all.

They performed each service that had been ordered. The perceived value was just the same as had been quoted to me. I was thankful that they performed the services in an adequate way so that I did not mind paying to have the cleaning done. Their manner was professional and they were thorough in their job. I was very pleased with the end result. I got my monies worth.

It was very exciting the first time that I used the service, but gradually I fell out of touch because of the carousel of strangers that came into my home. At one point, I was going out of town and was told that the schedule was set and I wouldn't be able to change the dates of my service, but would still have to pay for them if the maids were not able to get into the house. When I tried to complain about this fact I wasn't even listened to. For the cost of the service, I should be able to buy a fleet of maids who would do my bidding. For a company of this size, I should be able to get better customer service.

They cleaned the house and did a very thorough job, but the job itself isn't too demanding. My house is small and urban and should take about one hour to clean. They always came on time, but the whole deal was that I couldn't switch my times as efficiently as I would like. My schedule is very fluid and changes week by week. For me to set one schedule is just setting me up for failure. In my opinion I should be able to set up appointments very fluidly and not be locked into scheduling arrangements. It was a fair price based on what other companies in my area charge. I don't think I will be using them again, but that isn't because they are too expensive. In fact, I never thought I could afford to have a cleaning service until I saw how affordable it could be.

Nothing wrong with the service, all was good and the house was cleaned. We thought that this was the good way to clean the house and they helped in a good way. We liked the maids coming in and doing the service very good. They not only cleaned but they cleaned so well that we were so happy. We figured that they would come by and clean at a certain time and they did. They were so good at their job and God bless them for helping us. We think that we have the best service everywhere. For us the goodness of the cleaning, praise be the lord, helped us to stop fighting with the kids to clean up after themselves.

Some didn't speak English very well which can be difficult when giving directions. Mostly every spot that was in a concealed place was still cleaned well and not ignored. That was impressive, I was hoping that the areas would be cleaned. The people arrived on time. They were finished at the time they gave me. I don't feel like you have to worry about their reliability if I had to hire them again. I thought that I got what I paid for. It was a good value. I was able to have the things that I wanted, done for a price that was worth what I paid.

They were helpful in all aspects of my service. I would highly recommend them to my friends and family. I will only use this service and no other. Overall I was very pleased with everything this company had to offer and will use them again and again!! The quality of the work was wonderful. They cleaned everything. My house was spotless when they were done. I could not be happier with my experience and will continue to use them in the future. The reliability of the company is great. They are always on time. They always do a wonderful job and could not recommend a more reliable company. I truly believe they provide an invaluable service. My wife is pregnant and I work a lot so to have this wonderful company to help us is truly invaluable.

The customer service was outstanding. They knew exactly what to ask to see what I needed done for my home and recommended the right professionals to get the jobs done. Couldn't of been happier with the quality of service. They treated my home just like it was their own. Didn't have to watch every move they made to get the jobs done right. They were right on time which helped a lot and like I said the performance was outstanding compared to what I could of done. I just had have surgery and couldn't get the things cleaned the way I wanted them done. Hourly wage was fair for all they put into cleaning my house. Couldn't of asked for better professionals to clean my house for the fair price they charged.

The quality of the cleaning was fantastic. My home looked fantastic and smelled fresh and clean. There were some stains in the shower that the worker was able to completely remove. Very very reliable. Showed up at the time set for the service. Very professional and pleasant attitude. Appeared to really love their job which truly showed in their work. The value of the service was more than well worth it. 5 rooms were cleaned professionally and thoroughly. I use this service monthly and am very very pleased.

Satisfaction Rating

They just came and did their job, didn't have conversation or talk or do anything extra. It was average customer service. The cleaning was okay, but I was not amazed due to the fact that I am the one who usually does the cleaning in my household and I try to make it as clean as possible, but their service just tidied things up. The time of the service was fine because they came on time, finished cleaning in a timely manner and did not complain nor rush it. I would recommend this service because of the time performance, but everything else was mediocre, and not really anything special. The value was good due to the fact it was not that expensive although I would not recommend because the job done did not fully complete my requests to how clean I would have wanted it to be. Otherwise I would be glad to recommend to anyone who just wants their place to be tidied up.

Communication with the company was easy and efficient. Service appointment was simple to schedule and team arrived on time as arranged. Cleaning crew was complete and thorough completing tasks efficiently. Time was not wasted and my home was left spotless. Good attention to detail in every room. The appointment time was at a convenient time for me. I was pleased to see the crew arrive promptly on time as I had other things to do after. I would recommend. Overall, the quality of the cleaning service versus the price paid was worth it. I received a thorough cleaning job better than I would have been able to complete on my own.

The customer service was great. They are always available to book an appointment and answer your questions and concerns as well to satisfy your needs. The quality of the experience was great. They did a great job making sure everything is cleaned and tidy. They always double-checked before they leave. The reliability in terms of timeliness and their performance was great. They may come early to be familiar with their surroundings. The perceived value is also great. It is not expensive and affordable. From time to time, there are coupons available so you can save extra money.

Friendly and knows how to deal with customers very well. Despite of busy line they manage to accommodate nicely. Customer service is really good. Everything is clean. They do their chores really good. I will always use them every time I need cleaners. Very hardworking and nice people. All over performance -- I am contented and happy with the service. Always on time, ask question, and have the common sense to do their work, no need to supervise, can be trusted. They value all their client well, treat each one as a friend, and help each other. They do their work as what you expect and always finish on the way you want it to be.

Generally easy to get a real person when you need to, but I've also never had a negative experience with the service, so my need to contact customer service has only ever been related to appointment times. We were able to leave our home in the morning, trust their team members to work freely while we worked, and then come home to a sparkling, wonderful-smelling house that felt new. Would definitely recommend them! We only ever had one instance where they needed to delay a start time, and even then it was only an hour, so overall no issues or complaints. Slightly more expensive than the individual contractor we'd been using, but also more reliable and on-time, and backed by a guarantee that we couldn't get by working with an individual.

Very easy to work with and schedule. I called and was able to make an appointment on short notice. I was very standard with the customer service. They arrived on time and did the work that was specified. Were professional and courteous of my home. I was very satisfied with the overall quality of the sale. They showed up when I expected them to and did a fine job. Everything that was agreed to was what I decide was and I was very happy with it. It was a decent value for the money. A little expensive but worth it for the convenience.

They didn't clean too good, and they always seemed to be in a hurry a lot of the time. Some of their work was thorough, but other spots they didn't get clean whatsoever. The service that they provided wasn't too terribly good in my opinion. They had to hurry along to get things cleaned, and that I didn't like. They would always come on time no questions asked. Their performance was pretty good for the most part. They were reliable when they came to my place. The value wasn't too good because it was quite expensive for not doing very much for their time. I didn't like that they would charge so much money.

The customer service I have received through this company has been utterly and entirely helpful. I would recommend this service to my friends and colleagues and hope their service quality is consistent as I had a good experience with them. The quality of the service was above average. Unlike many of the services I have used previously, this one was friendly and quick while also thorough with their work. The service is also flexible and extremely convenient. They are professional and reliable. They show the makings of a stand-up and proper business as far as their quality and reliability goes. I hope their work is consistent with the experience I had with them. It was a tad on the expensive side. They did do good work and had friendly service, however, I'm sure all customers would like to pay less for any kind of service they have to have provided.

The customer service of this brand was good, the lady did what was asked/expected of her without any issues whatsoever. Would recommend. This service sent a very nice and hardworking lady and we were very pleased with her quality of work when we came home. She arrived on time and finished in a reasonable time as well. She did very well and was a very pleasant lady. Never has any issues with reliability. This company as a whole is very professional and does quality work. They went above and beyond with the persons they sent out to meet us. She was wonderful and I wouldn't want my money to go to anyone less qualified.

The customer service was great. Before I hired this company, I have to say, I was in doubt. I didn't want to be disappointed, and I wasn't, they were very interested in me and my needs. They exceeded my expectations. I would definitely hire them again. They met & exceeded my every need, made sure I was completely satisfied before leaving, and they always showed professionalism and quality of work. To me the appearance & attitude tells a lot about you, specially at work. Whether it's just a job or your own company you should always work with great attitude and demonstrate all quality skills to clients and that exactly what they demonstrated.

They were always on time. I have to say I was never kept waiting. In fact they were always at my place about 30 minutes prior to the appointed time, which is great if you work on a tight schedule and have to be rushing in and out. They're a bit pricey but it's definitely worth the money. You get what you pay for, and overall if you don't like anything at all, you can always speak up and they will listen to your complaints. Most times they ask you if there was anything you didn't like about their service.

Very friendly, courteous and efficient. Answered all of my questions and did not rush through cleaning or speaking to me. Always were available and understanding when I need to change days or times. My home was always cleaned from top to bottom. Even the ceiling fans were dusted and window sills were cleaned. I never worried if they would do a good job or not. Employees were never late, usually showed up a few minutes early and were always ready to work or wait if I wasn't quite ready for them to start cleaning. I did a lot of comparison shopping as my dollar is important to me. The value of which I was getting couldn't be matched anywhere for what I was charged.

Very attentive to areas usually skipped over. Would highly recommend them.

The Maids service was friendly and wonderful. They were bright, easy going and very serious about their work. I would always recommend their company. There was not a spot left after they left my home. They were very fast and efficient. I was very satisfied with their services. They cleaned things I didn't even realize were dirty! Very reliable service. The Maids are always on time, they always call when they're on their way. I feel I can fully trust them in my home. Having peace of mind and knowing your home and belongings will be safe is priceless. The Maids are trustworthy, reliable and hardworking. Worth every penny!

Went smoothly and didn't have too many problems. The company's manager had an amazing attitude throughout the entire call. The manager had offered a coupon and to send his best cleaning crew to help I was more than satisfied. The quality of how well they had cleaned, dusted, and hand washed my belongings was beyond my expectation. I would most definitely have it done again if I ever needed to. They made it on time with no bad attitudes and I welcomed them in without a problem. I wanted to thank each one of them individually. They are absolutely great. No issues at all. I am grateful for their services and will be more than happy to recommend them to any of my friends if they were looking for a clean up service. They were great couldn't have been any more grateful.

No issues with most of them. There was few I had trouble understanding but over all can't complain. Would use again if needed. They cleaned everything very well. No major issues. Was after a knee surgery, couldn't do much on my own so their service helped a lot keep things clean. They were on time. Finished in a timely manner. They gave me a better quote than most places and the final bill was not that bad. I'd recommend and use this service again.

They take accurate amounts of time, and clean very well. I was very happy, and pleased. I could tell they are very professional in their business, and I highly recommend them to anyone. Their quality is outstanding. The products they use are very professional, and very effective. They know what they are doing as maids. Whatever they use, the products are way better than what I use to use. The value of their time, and expertise is very well worth it. I would even pay a higher price because of their professionalism. You can't go wrong with this type of service.

They did a great job and left the place amazingly clean. I would definitely recommend to a friend and use them again. Everything was spotless and amazing. Also smelled great. The quality was average. It was excellent and it wasn't horrible so average. Could of done a better job but it was ok. Didn't want to fuss or make a big deal so I let it go. They are EXTREMELY reliable. Would use them again when necessary. If someone can't make it they call a day ahead with is great because most people won't even do that. So they are definitely good. The value is a little pricey but it's worth it because they leave the house spotless. Better you pay a little pricey than to use a cheap service and have them not do a good job.

Wait time was minimal and it was very easy to find the information needed to contact customer service. High quality service as a result of using The Maids.

They did not linger around to increase their pay. They simply came in and got the job done with tremendous speed and quality. Perceived value was of high quality as I had high expectations and all of them were exceeded with minimal effort. I am extremely happy for the service and would definitely recommend future usage.

Once you place a call for the maids to come, they'll give you a time limit, and it is always accurate. Once they come in they ask specific areas of your house you would like to be cleaned, and products that you would like them to use. Some of their products made my allergies go out of place. But in the beginning they ask you if you are allergic to any of the products that they used. All you have to do is give them a call, and they'll give you a time limit on which they will arrive. Their service is fast and reliable. The company seems to just be getting started, but the service is great. Since they are a fairly new business not too many people probably heard of them. But my perception is great.
