Please call our office for pricing*
What time will you be at my house?
When scheduling your request you can give Sharon a requested date and time and as long as we have availability for that
time she will schedule your appointment otherwise she will discuss options available.
What days are you closed?
Pristine Maids is closed on Sunday. We are also closed Thanksgiving day, Christmas Day and New Years Day.
What if I'm not satisfied?
Our work is 100% guaranteed. If you are not satisfied we will return within 24 hours and re-clean any unsatisfactory areas.
What if I have to skip or cancel my service?
Give us 24 business hours notice of your change in plans and we will promptly reschedule or cancel your service.
What happens if something is damaged in my home?
The cleaners have been instructed to leave a note on the kitchen counter. We ask you to decide how you would like the
situation handled. We can replace the item, reimburse you for it or credit your account for the amount +20%. You decide
and we'll do it - unless it's a coffee pot. Those are replaced before the end of the day if at all possible because we know how
awful it is not to have coffee!
The HOW questions:
How many people come to clean my home?
We may send one cleaner to your home based on the size of the home or we may use teams of two professionally trained
maids to clean your home. We want you to enjoy the kind of continuity in your service that allows you to never think twice
about it. We make every effort to send the same cleaner to your home for each visit.
How do I pay for my service?
Unfortunately, for the protection of the cleaners and the company, we do not accept personal checks or cash payments.
We accept E-checks and Credit Cards - Visa, Master Card or Discover. When paying by credit card or e-check, you will get a
copy of your paid invoice via email as long as we have your email address on file. Payment for first time customers is due in full
prior to initial cleaning service. When we process credit cards as payment for recurring service, they are processed on
Mondays. All E-checks will be set up for recurring payments for the same date as your recurring service. There is a $2.00
Credit Card processing fee. All E-checks are processed on the day of service and there is a $1.00 transaction fee. This is the
fee our merchant charges Pristine Maids LLC. We do not make any money off of this charge.
How will you get in?
We prefer to have a key. Our secure lock box and numbering system makes us feel the most secure. We will get a key from
under the mat and lock it inside if you prefer that option, but we ask you to keep in mind that we do charge lock-out fees so
it is critical that we are able to have access on the day of the cleaning.
How do you handle my pets?
We are a pet-friendly company, meaning your pets are welcome to have the run of the house as long as they are friendly.
We keep them either in or out as you prefer and we may even have a treat for them so let us know of any dietary
We’ll make sure they get a little extra loving on Pristine Maid day! It won’t take long before your dogs will get the rhythm of
our visits and begin to wait for us by the door.
How do I tip?
It's not expected, but it is greatly appreciated for work well done. All tips are to go directly to your cleaner or team.
Pristine Maids does not handle any aspect of the tips. If you are paying for your service with a credit card and wish to have a
tip included for your cleaner or team, please call the office and we will make sure they receive their tip. While everyone
LOVES getting their tips, you should not use tips to “buy” better service. It will probably back-fire on you. Our Teams are
trained that tips mean they’ve done an exceptional job, so if you tip you will continue to get the same service – which may
not be helpful if
you’re trying to buy better service.
How do I get the best possible service?
Understand that there is a breaking-in period with a new housecleaning company. Be prepared to give a LOT of feedback
initially. All those little details are what make the difference! Don’t worry about picking up and tidying, we’ll do that
automatically, but let us know every little thing you like and don’t like. It won’t be long before we’ll be doing it just the way
you want it. To get that added discount off your initial cleaning – give us a Like on Facebook and get $50 off your initial
cleaning instead of $25.
Finally the WHY questions:
Why does the Initial cleaning cost more?
The initial deep cleaning is a LOT more work. This is when we get all the build-up of hard water, soap scum etc. off as well as
the deep dusting and vacuuming that are necessary – just removing the grates from the refrigerator and microwave make a
big difference on that day. After this initial cleaning, we will spend much less time in your home keeping it up to this standard.
You will probably want a Spring cleaning once a year or so to wet wipe all the wood work, the blinds, valances, fans, etc. but
your regular cleaning will probably maintain the majority of your home.
Why were photos taken of the interior and exterior of my home?
Pristine Maids, LLC may take photos of the interior/exterior of your home if the condition is not what we consider "normal".
This is for proof of the condition of the home when we begin and at times, pictures of the after in order to show you the
difference. Also, the pictures have been used in order for homeowners to take legal action against tenants who have caused
damage to the home. Once you sign the credit card authorization form, you have given Pristine Maids, LLC the consent to
take photos of your home exterior and/or interior.
Why are some services cheaper than others?
Because they should be! The underground market (aka "trunk-slammers") seems less expensive but in the long run it really
isn't. They give the cleaning industry a bad name by not paying taxes and hiring illegals.

Why do I see similar word content or ads like Pristine Maids on Craigslist?
That's because our competitors have nothing else better to do and want to be just like us so bad they feel the need to steal
our word content and or offers. Bottom line, Pristine Maids is not affiliated with any other service you see similar offers or
wording. Please call our office if you have questions. These companies are being monitored by our attorneys.
* Warning - Please pay attention to the ads posted as some businesses have recently changed their name however it is
actually the same service last year. More than likely these businesses have ruined their reputation and are looking to start
over. Hire a service that has been servicing the community for more than 6 months!
A Well known and established service goes a long way!
