Merry Maids FAQs: Learn how we can help you
Merry Maids cleaning is the result of more than 40 years’ experience. In that time, we’ve been faced with many frequently asked questions about our Pickering & Ajax cleaning company. Carry on reading to understand how the Merry Maids cleaning experience can work for you. Alternatively, you could just give us a call to get started.
What are your cleaning rates?
The best way to determine the cost of your Merry Maids cleaning is through a free in-home consultation. If that is not possible, you can also call your local office and provide them with a description of your home and areas requiring cleaning. Though the estimate won’t be as accurate as an in-home consultation, it should give you an approximate idea of the costs, which we can confirm upon our arrival. Every home is different, and we must take into account variables like clutter, pets, and lifestyle, which can all impact your price.
Do you have cleaning packages?
Absolutely! Check out our Merry Maids Cleaning Services section to see a full description of what’s available. Best of all, you can customize each one to fit your needs – as the name suggests.
Do you bring your own cleaning supplies, chemicals and equipment?
Yes we do. We bring all of the tools to complete the job in the most efficient, thorough and professional way possible. We prioritize the cleanliness of your home by using proprietary cleaning solutions that avoid chemicals while adopting a systematic approach to home cleaning. Our Merry Maids branded, specially formulated and green certified cleaning products provide high levels of cleaning and sanitation that are completely fit for the task at hand. Rest assured these products are both safe and effective for any home surface standing in the way of our team. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail. That’s why we use colour coded microfiber cloths to remove any possible chance of cross-contamination from one room to the next. This systematic approach is the most productive method in achieving the results you deserve. For an extra layer of reassurance, our specialized cleaning products all meet and exceed the Carpet and Rug Institute’s Green Label certification. In other words, our vacuums are finely tuned to effectively remove dust and dirt, improving your home’s overall cleanliness in turn. We have the utmost respect for your home and treat it as such when you hand us the key.
Do you clean homes just once?
We can, but that’s not the only option with Merry Maids. Ultimately, it’s up to you how often you’d like to have us take care of the cleaning. Please check our Merry Maids Cleaning Services section to see how regularly we can clean your home.
How many people will be in my home during each cleaning?
Typically, 1-2 maids will be scheduled to clean your home depending on the demand for the day. In some circumstances, for example if a home is particularly large or if you need a fast cleaning before an event, we may send 3 maids to get the job done quicker. We always consult with you and would be happy to let you know how many maids will be in your home during your FREE in-home cleaning consultation. We understand that your space is private and respect the trust you place in us by inviting us into your home.
If I sign up for long-term cleaning service, will the same maid be in my home during each cleaning?
We always try to be consistent every time we perform a cleaning of your home. We will always try to have the same team member(s) return but sometimes another cleaning may call for one maid to be elsewhere. Merry Maids ensures that any details you may have requested will be taken care of.
Can I schedule my own cleaning time?
To increase your chances of requesting a specific time for a cleaning, it’s advisable to sign up for an early morning or late afternoon cleaning service. Traffic delays happen so by scheduling your cleaning around rush hour, this can help us arrive at a time convenient for all. Should you prefer to have us perform a cleaning around midday, we’ll provide you with our estimated time of arrival.
What is the difference between Merry Maids and another cleaning service?
At Merry Maids of Pickering & Ajax, rest assured you are getting the cumulative knowledge from Merry Maids of more than 40 years of cleaning experience. That means years of tips, tricks, and techniques all taught to our cleaning teams. On top of that, our teams are carefully screened, trained, bonded and insured so you never have to worry about who is cleaning your home – they’re always a professional. Lastly, our Merry Maids cleaning methods and tools allow us to really focus on getting every detail in your home to look its best.
