What Questions to Ask before Hiring a Potential Maid?

Many people don’t have time to clean their homes. The demands of work and other responsibilities often mean sacrificing time that could be spent doing housework.

But hiring a maid is more complex than it sounds. You need to ensure that you’re hiring someone who will do a good job and treat your home with respect. There are several questions that you should ask any potential maid before hiring them, including:

Are You Licensed and Insured?

It is important to ensure that any cleaning service you hire is licensed and insured. This will protect you in case of any accidents or if something happens to your property while they are working. If they are not licensed and insured, then find another cleaning service. You can be sure that a licensed and insured cleaning service will have much more credibility with you. A good cleaning service should also be able to provide proof of their insurance coverage upon request.

Do You Offer Any Guarantees on Your Work?

It’s also good practice to ask about guarantees, particularly if you’re paying for an ongoing cleaning service. The cleaner should be able to guarantee their work will meet your expectations. If they aren’t willing to make that guarantee, think twice before hiring them.

Can You Work around My Schedule?

Many people hire maids because they need more time in their busy lives to keep up with cleaning on top of everything else they have going on. If you have a busy schedule, a maid can work around it so that you aren’t inconveniencing yourself or anyone else by asking them to come over at an inconvenient time.

How Do You Screen Your Employees?

When hiring any employee, it’s important to understand how they screen their candidates first. Determine if they do background checks or drug tests before bringing someone into their home, so there will be no surprises down the road. Also, ensure they screen potential employees based on their personality traits and skill set because sometimes people can say one thing but act differently once hired.

How Long Have You Been in Business?

There is a lot to be said for the company that has been in business for a long time. But it’s also important to consider why they’ve been around so long. If the company is only a few years old, then how do you know that its business model will work? Ask about how many people have worked for them as well as what their turnover rate is like. This can give you some insight into whether or not they’re doing things right and whether or not they’re happy with their current employees.


Having someone to clean your place is one of the best investments you can make. It frees time for other important things and gives you more space to work. And no matter what kind of cleaning service you have, there are some key things to consider when deciding whether or not it’s a good fit for you.
