The Dangers of Hiring an Unlicensed Housecleaner

February 15, 2018

One thing that rings true throughout every business, and often in life itself, is that you never get the most when you pay the least! This is definitely true for house cleaning companies as well! Many people do not realize the dangers of an unlicensed and uninsured maid service, so we are going to cover few bases today and leave everyone with a little cocktail party knowledge!

Most people know the importance of carrying homeowners or renters insurance to protect you in case of accidents or other losses, but did you know that an unlicensed and uninsured cleaner is the same as any other guest in your home? If they are injured (trip over their own vacuum cord) or cause damage to your home (leaving a faucet running and flooding the upstairs bathroom, etc) you and your insurance are 100% liable and can be sued to recover and medical bills or injuries. This will follow you on every policy for years and can be avoided by simply asking if a company is licensed, bonded, and insured for your protection.

At Desert Maids, our clients safety is paramount. We employ referrals, rigorous background checks, constant training, and supervision to make sure we only employ the best cleaners. We train at the owners homes because if we wouldn’t trust employees in our homes, we would never send them to yours.

For worker and client safety we are fully licensed, bonded, and insured up to $2 million dollars to protect the 2 most important things in our every day lives, our cleaners and our clients. Even if you don’t choose us to clean your home, follow these simple tips to ensure your family stays safe and you get the best work possible:

1. Ask to see insurance and licenses.
2. Ask about background checks.
3. Ask about maid training and instruction.
4. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is! Maid service is a labor intensive process, and there is no shortcut to excellent service.
