Can I just get a ballpark figure of how much it will cost to clean my home?
The office in your area can give you a range that takes into account all
the possibilities of cleaning your home. Because every home is unique,
we base our pricing on factors like clutter, pets, and even your lifestyle,
all of which affect the way we clean and impact the price.
What are your rates?
Our pricing is completely individualized. Our 40 years of experience have
helped us learn that every home is as unique as the people living there.
We base our pricing on many factors, including the presence of pet hair,
clutter, and even your lifestyle. Please contact your local Merry Maids®
for more information.
Do you offer packages?
We completely individualize our cleanings, so no specific packages are
offered. We use a proven system to clean thoroughly, consistently, and
efficiently. For a list of items we generally clean during a visit, please
visit our cleaning services page. We also tailor our visit to your individual
needs and your home's cleaning requirements. Please contact your local
office for more information.
Do you bring your own cleaning supplies, chemicals, and equipment?
Yes, we bring everything we need to clean your home. You don't have to
provide a thing.
Do you clean homes just once, or do you have to clean long-term?
While most of our customers prefer a weekly cleaning on a regularly scheduled
day, we also clean homes every other week or less frequently. Even special
How many people will be in my home during each cleaning?
Local Merry Maids® offices may send one, two, or three team members
to clean a home. Our goal is to customize the cleaning to meet our client’s
needs and also provide our team members with the greatest opportunities
for career advancement. We will work with you so that you know how many
people will be in your home. We respect that your home is private, and
the trust you place in us by inviting us into your home.
If I sign up for long-term service, will the same person be in my home
We make every effort to ensure that we keep the same team who serves your
home cleans during each visit. If a member of the team changes, our office
staff contacts you beforehand to learn if you prefer someone other than
your regular cleaning professional or would rather change your scheduled
day so your favorite team member can clean.
What time will you be at my home?
If you would like us to be at your home at a specific time, we recommend
that you sign up for service either at the beginning of the day or the
end of the day. As we clean homes during the day, we often encounter things
that delay our arrival at our next home, like traffic, or a customer who
would like some additional help. For midday service, we give you a window
of time for our arrival.
Certain locations also offer dispatch customer service notifications via
our Team Mobility feature, which will remind you of your appointments
and alert you when we are on our way. They’ll provide you with information
about your team of cleaning professionals and the option to track their arrival!
What is the difference between Merry Maids® and another cleaning company?
Merry Maids® does more than just take care of homes—we take care
of people. We give you back the time you deserve so that you can focus
on what matters most. We have 40 years of experience in professional residential
cleaning, which has allowed us to develop advanced, thorough processes
that deliver unrivaled, worry-free results. That's our specialty.
We clean hundreds of thousands of homes across the United States and Canada,
and even in other countries like the United Kingdom and Japan. Our Merry
Maids® team understands the importance of earning and keeping your
trust, which is why we clean thoroughly and efficiently while respecting
your space. This is something we believe on and act on with every visit.
What does Merry Maids® offer that other cleaning companies don’t?
Merry Maids® makes house cleaning easy for you by managing all the
details of employment, including filing all required state and federal
paperwork and paying taxes. We make sure that we are at your home on the
day you expect us, and we manage the quality. We are also bonded and insured,
so you are protected against theft, accidental breakage, or accidents
inside your home.
When you hire an independent cleaning person, there are some important
requirements to be aware of. According to Internal Revenue Service Publication
926, Household Employer's Tax Guide, if you hire someone to do household
work and if you control not only what work is done, but how it is done,
you are considered to have a household employee. If you are going to hire
a household employee, it is important to understand your obligations as
a household employer. For more information about household employees,
see IRS publication 926.
If you are a domestic employer and pay your employee in cash or off-the-books,
you are liable for unpaid taxes. Furthermore, your employee is not contributing
to their Social Security account and may have difficulty establishing credit.
If there is a problem, who can I call?
We want to hear from you. If you see a problem while the team is in your
home, contact your local Merry Maids® office. We’ll work to
quickly correct the problem and enforce our worry-free guarantee. If you’re
not satisfied with our services for any reason, let us know within 24-hours
and we’ll be sure to make it right.
