Trust is the backbone of what we provide. Our staff is comprised of full time employees and not day laborers. All of our employees are properly vetted and have undergone background checks.
Upon being hired, each maid is trained in our Geaux Maids University program to perform the detailed cleaning plans along with our specifications. Geaux Maids also has a quality control inspector that randomly inspects homes daily.
Our cleaning professionals are trained, bonded and insured. Our residential housekeepers respect customers by never eating, drinking, smoking or using appliances during home cleanings. And each Geaux Maids takes pride in their work, receiving regularly updated training and supervision to ensure quality maid service.
Communication is important for any relationship including ours. It’s why we’re so flexible, offering customized cleaning service plans designed with your needs in mind. No contracts. No hassle. Establishing this open communication and being flexible ensures your satisfaction as a long-term customer.
No, but it is certainly your preference. We clean Monday – Sunday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and most of our customers aren’t home but the vast majority trust Geaux Maids with the key to their home. For additional security all house keys are individually coded cross-referenced and secured in our office.
Geaux Maids can’t guarantee an exact arrival time because each home gets the attention it deserves. We work in 2-hour arrival windows with the exception of the first appointment of the day which is an 8:30-9:00 a.m. arrival window.
We treat you and your home with complete respect. If something does unexpectedly break, we do our best to either repair or replace that item. Geaux Maids reserves the right to photograph any damaged items.
Geaux Maids offers consistent, quality home cleaning. Like in any relationship, however, miscommunications occur and we may miss a spot. That’s why we offer a house cleaning guarantee, which means if you notify us within 24 hours, our house cleaning staff will address the areas in question.
Geaux Maids offers a worry-free home cleaning service solution. That means we take care of personal liability with regard to work-related injury. Most independent maid services are not, which makes homeowners liable. We are fully insured, licensed and bonded for your protection and ours.
Professional cleaning services from Geaux Maids are designed to help keep your home fresh, clean and comfortable. So, we customize our house cleaning services to fit your home’s unique needs and budget. To provide this level of exceptional service to all our valued customers there are some areas and items in your home that Geaux Maids does not clean.
No, Geaux Maids comes to your home fully equipped to clean with top-quality products and commercial vacuums. However, because Geaux Maids is flexible, if requested and provided, we may clean with your preferred products depending on the chemicals.
You must call our office to reschedule and we suggest calling 72-hours before your regularly scheduled cleaning. We will do our best to accommodate your scheduling needs. If you cancel within a 48-hour period, there is a 25% fee. If we show up for a scheduled appointment and cannot access for any reason there will be a 25% lockout fee. If you are on recurring service and cancel an appointment the next cleaning will be billed accordingly.
We observe these holidays:
If a routine cleaning falls on one of these holidays, we will contact you in advance to arrange a make-up date. We work on many federal holidays. Unless you cancel service, you can expect us to arrive as scheduled, if your cleaning date falls on any holiday except those stated above.
Payments are due the day of your scheduled home cleaning service. We require customers keep a credit card on file with us.
Upon scheduling your cleaning, you will be given a time frame in which your assigned team will arrive at your home or apartment. Exactly when they arrive depends on traffic, weather and the conditions of other homes on the schedule. A two-hour window of arrival is typical.
We encourage it! Special instructions will enhance the cleaning experience you receive. However, it is very important you communicate any special instructions directly to the office so that we can place them in the permanent notes section of your file. This makes your notes available to any team that may clean your home in the future, as well as a reminder for your regular team.
We have found that having that first or initial cleaning brings your home up to a certain standard. It’s a standard that we promise to maintain. We normally need extra time to properly start the process of eliminating old dirt along with dust accumulation, baseboards and detailed vacuuming and dusting.
Geaux Maids can provide weekly, every two weeks, or monthly service, depending on your cleaning needs. We also offer cleanings for special occasions, as well as move-in and move-out cleaning services.
We believe that sending the same team is very important and we do everything within our control to send the same team on a regular basis. However, just like every workplace, we experience absences and resignations. We will send a replacement team, if necessary, in order to meet your schedule requirements. All of our teams are trained in the same cleaning system, so that when another team must be used, it is transparent to our customers.
Tips are appreciated and handled between the customer and the cleaning techs. We have found it common for clients to tip at the end of each clean, or make a larger tip at the end of the year. Leave whatever you feel comfortable with. Please make sure money left as a tip is clearly marked as such. We can provide tip envelopes upon your request. You can also leave a kind review us on Yelp.
Yes! We are a pet-friendly company and believe it is OK to have pets in the house while we clean. If your dog/cat is aggressive in any way, we suggest leaving your pet crated or in a gated area to ensure the safety of our team. If you are not home during our clean, we ask that you inform our office on how to handle the pet so the team is clear when entering the home. If your pet isn’t the cleanest member of the family, please clean up after him/her prior to our arrival. Our staff will not handle pet waste.
We are a non-discriminating employer and have a diverse, multi-cultural staff. Good communication is important to us. Thus, we ask our clients to call the office to relay any notes or requests. We will add this information to the work orders for the team. All our teams are in touch with the office via cell phone throughout the work day. We can easily call a team to relay a message for you even while they are working in your home. Just let us know.
Of course, the more we visit the bigger the discount! The discounts offered are as follows:
We always send a team of at least 1 sometimes 2 depending on the job requirements.
A hold will be placed on your account the day PRIOR to your service. You will only be charged after the service has been completed.
Book a cleaning with us and you’ll never have to worry about a cleaning again.
