Bonding and Insurance?
Our insurance is the best available. We're not just bonded; we also have liability, crime and employee accident coverage. Your home, our service providers and Las Vegas Dependable Maids are included in the coverage.
Las Vegas Dependable Maids realizes the nature of cleaning requires our staff to touch virtually all items within one's home. If any damage/loss does occur, simply notify Las Vegas Dependable Maids with 48 hours of the cleaning date.
How do you access my home?
Las Vegas Dependable Maids must be able to access your home to provide services. There are three choices:
If I give you my keys, how are they protected?
- Most Las Vegas Dependable Maids customers leave a key to their home with one our maids on the first service date and we take extreme measures to protect each key. Your key will be kept safe and secure in our key safe and coded for security.
- If it is not possible to leave a key with Las Vegas Dependable Maids, you may authorize us to use and assign us an entrance code for your garage door. (Outdoor keypad must be available at your residence). If we cannot enter your home, we will try to contact you while our maids are still at your home to find a way to enter your residence to clean. If we cannot enter your residence we will reschedule your cleaning for the next convenient day.
- If neither of the above is possible, please make alternate arrangements with the Vegas Dependable Maids office. The most efficient, and problem-free way for everyone is for you to give us a key. Then you will not have to wait to meet our maids.
Your key is coded as soon as it enters the office. It will be stored in a locked key storage box to which only Las Vegas Dependable management has access. The day of your scheduled cleaning, your key is matched to your job ticket. Upon returning to the office, the service provider returns all keys to management who then places them back into the secured storage box.
How many people will clean my home?
Our teams vary from home to home. Generally, our service providers work in teams of one or two. Sometimes we have teams of three or more. When more than one person is at the job, the quoted time -- which was given in man hours -- is lessened by the number of people. For example, if you were scheduled for a two-hour service and two service providers are assigned to your job, the cleaning should be completed in one team hour or two man-hours.
Will I always have the same service provider?
We make every effort to send the same service provider(s) each time. Occasionally there may be a change in service providers due to illness, day off, vacation or they may no longer work for Las Vegas Dependable Maids. Therefore, it is not possible for us to guarantee the same individual/team for each cleaning. In the event of such an occurrence, Las Vegas Dependable Maids will find a replacement. Vegas Dependable Maids provide an extensive training program to each of our employees to ensure consistent cleaning techniques throughout our staff.
Are service providers trained and supervised?
All service providers attend "Las Vegas Dependable Maids University" prior to entering your home. Las Vegas Dependable Maids University includes orientation to our company, a session on cleaning, cleaning videotapes, situation role-play, and a session on driving. Employees are then assigned to trainers who supervise them on their first several cleanings. After a formal review with the trainer and management, the service provider is then assigned to a team.
How do I pay for your services?
Las Vegas Dependable Maids gladly accepts the following forms of payment: MasterCard/Visa, cash or check. Payment is due at the time of service. One-time cleanings require a credit card payment. For your convenience, a credit card number may be left on file with Las Vegas Dependable Maids to use in the event you should forget to leave your payment at the time of the cleaning. Otherwise, a $10.00 non-payment fee will be incurred. A $25.00 fee is applied to all returned checks. If you use a credit card, your account will be charged the balance due, plus any fees, after each cleaning.
What is the cost of my cleaning?
Fees are based on the size and condition of your home. When you receive the initial estimate, it is just that -- an estimate. Once the service providers enter your home for the first time, they should have a better sense of exactly how long the cleaning should take. As soon as they become aware of a discrepancy between the estimate and actual time needed, they immediately contact Las Vegas Dependable Maids management who will try to contact you to discuss the difference. Very often, first-time cleans or one-time cleanings may require additional time and an additional fee. If this is the case, you will be contacted by management prior to authorizing the service providers to spend more time in the home.
Should I tip the service providers?
If you are pleased with the work done in your home we encourage you to show your appreciation to your service provider. Although not required, a gratuity is a powerful way to say "I appreciate your work." Even a note from you, simply saying "thanks for a job well done" means a great deal.
What is the cancellation policy?
If it is necessary to cancel/skip your regular cleaning day, Las Vegas Dependable Maids merely requires a 2 business day notice. If Las Vegas Dependable Maids receives less than a 2 business day notice, or can't access your home, it will be necessary for us to charge the full price of your cleaning. Future scheduled cleanings will remain unchanged. Please be sure to submit in writing any termination of regularly scheduled cleanings. Do not inform the service providers of any changes to your schedule -- it must be done directly with the management of your local office. Note that recurring service is priced at a discounted rate. Should you choose to cancel recurring service after only one cleaning, please note that our regular One-Time Cleaning charges apply.
What if my cleaning falls on holiday?
If your scheduled cleaning falls on a holiday Las Vegas Dependable Maids observes, we will be sure to contact you to reschedule your cleaning.
How do I provide feedback on my cleanings?
Since cleaning is a very personalized and subjective service, we leave a comment card after each cleaning for your feedback. In addition, you may call your local office directly, or even visit this website to let us know how things went -- good or bad. We encourage you to take the time to complete and return (postage is pre-paid) the comment card or send us an email. This feedback is essential to serve you better, to correct any problems and to praise those service providers who meet and exceed Las Vegas Dependable Maids' expectations.
Can I hire your service provider directly?
By entering into a service agreement with Las Vegas Dependable Maids, you agree not to hire a present or past Las Vegas Dependable Maids staff member introduced to you by Las Vegas Dependable Maids for any home-related service. If you do wish to employ such a staff member, our referral fee is $2,500.
