Why should I trust Nani Maids?

We’re proud to offer professional housecleaning services and employ residential housekeepers who pride themselves on top-quality services. After undergoing an extensive background check, each member of our team is thoroughly trained on every step of our detailed cleaning plans. We also back all of our work with a 24-hour warranty. These are just a few of the many reasons why customers trust Nani Maids.

Who does Nani Maids hire to clean my home?

You can rest assured that all of our professional housecleaners are fully trained and insured. We respect all of our customers by never smoking, drinking, eating, or using appliances during our home cleanings. We wear our nationally recognized uniforms with pride and confidently carry out services that exceed expectations. We also undergo regular training to ensure that we’re always up to date with all of the latest and greatest cleaning techniques. For additional safety and peace of mind, the work we perform for each customer is held accountable by a trusted and experienced supervisor.

What should I do before Nani Maids arrives?

To ensure maximum efficiency, we ask that you pick up any toys or clothing before we arrive. We also ask that you find a place for your pets so they’re comfortable while we clean. Following through with these requests will help both your family and our team ensure that all of your possessions are in a safe place.

Do I need to be home for every cleaning service?

No. Because we work on an 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. schedule, Monday to Saturday, most of our customers aren’t home when we arrive. In a majority of these cases, our insured housecleaning professionals are provided with a spare key or garage code.

What time does your team arrive?

While we cannot warranty our exact time of arrival because we give every home the attention it deserves and requires, we do offer arrival windows for your convenience. Nani Maids uses a unique “on-time arrival” software to log your preferences so our services are as minimally disruptive as possible. When you schedule housecleaning services with Nani Maids, we’ll give you an arrival timeframe of three to four hours. Because we give homes the individualized attention they deserve, we’re not able to provide an exact time of arrival, but we do our best to ensure that our cleaning plan doesn’t interfere with your schedule.

What if something’s damaged during a service?

At Nani Maids, we treat every single home we clean with the utmost respect. If something happens to break during our routine service, we’ll do our best to repair or replace the item. Our residential housekeepers are fully insured, so claims can be filed when appropriate.

What if something is missed?

The cleaning methods we use ensure that your home receives the most consistent clean every time. During your first consultation, we’ll create a customized cleaning plan that’s designed to accommodate all of your specific requests. However, we do recognize that perfection is not always possible, which is why we back all of our work with a satisfaction guarantee. We’re happy to correct our mistakes at no additional cost to you when you call us within 24 hours of your most recent service.

What do you not clean?

Our professional housecleaning services are designed to keep your home comfortable and clean. We customize services to accommodate your preferences so you never have to worry about paying for a service you don’t need or want.

To ensure we provide your home with the highest quality of care, we don’t typically:

  • Clean toys

  • Clean the inside of your fireplace

  • Pick up clutter

  • Clean your iron

  • Do laundry

  • Wash dishes

Do I need to provide your team with my own cleaning equipment or supplies?

No. We arrive with all of the cleaning materials we need and take them with us when we leave. We’re proud to use the best products and vacuums on the market to ensure that we leave your home looking spotless.

If you have any preferences in regards to what cleaning products we use, feel free to let us know and we’ll do everything we can to work with your requests.

What if I need to reschedule a service?

Nani Maids understands how unpredictable life can be. That’s why we work with your schedule to ensure that we’re cleaning your home at a time that’s most convenient for you. If you need to cancel or reschedule a cleaning, we recommend that you call about 72 hours before your next scheduled service. We’ll do our best to accommodate all of your scheduling needs.

How do I pay?

Payments are due on the day of your scheduled service. Most of our valued customers leave cash or a check on the kitchen counter, but we also accept credit card payments. 

How much do your services cost?

We’re proud to be recognized as a provider of affordable, top-quality housecleaning services. Our team works with every homeowner to develop a cleaning plan that’s customized to fit their needs. The costs of our services depend on the size of your home and what you’d like cleaned.

We can also add specialty services to your regular cleaning plan as needed, such as:

  • Fridge interior cleaning

  • Oven interior cleaning

  • Changing bed linens

  • Carpet cleaning

Why will my initial clean be more expensive than my other regularly scheduled services?

Over the years, we’ve found that the first cleaning service brings a home up to a specific standard and Nani Maids is committed to upholding that standard. That’s why our initial cleaning may take longer and cost a little more than the rest of your services. We need the extra time to properly begin the process of eliminating mildew, soap scum, dust, and dirt from your home. Contact us to request a free estimate.

How often can you provide service?

Nani Maids is happy to provide service once a week, every other week, or once a month, depending on your cleaning needs. You can also request housecleaning services for special events, as well as move-out and move-in cleaning assistance. Because we work on a no-contract basis, you can update or change your cleaning plan to fit your busy schedule, budget, and cleaning needs.
