Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and equipment?
We bring our own equipment and green cleaning supplies to clean your home. Our equipment is regularly updated and kept in excellent condition. Also, check out our 97 point crystal clean system to see the steps we take to ensure no two cloths or brushes are used for two widely different surfaces (for example, the toilet and bathroom basins).
WAIT! If you use your own cleaning supplies and equipment, does that mean you re-use the same rags and cloths on my home that you've used to clean another client's home?
NO, that would be disgusting and unhygienic.
After we've finished cleaning for the day we go away and prepare our cleaning kits for the next day. This includes a set of fresh, washed and colour coded rags for each individual client the next day. For instance, if we had seven clients on Monday, then we'd prepare sever separate cleaning kits the night before. This means we're not lifting dirt and bacteria from one home and transferring it to another client.
What happens if my housekeeper is sick or on vacation?
Your scheduled appointment will never be missed, even if your regular housekeepers are sick or unavailable. We appreciate that you need to be able to trust the people in your home, that's why we make it our goal to provide you with the same housekeepers for every appointment, and not swap them willy nilly.
Can I be assured that I'll be getting the same level of service each and every time?
At Life Maid Easy you'll be asked to complete a quick feedback form after each and every service. Rather than doing this in front of your housekeeper, where you may feel uncomfortable giving them feedback, you can complete this feedback online or submit it through fax or post. All of our team are on a pay for performance scheme as well, so your feedback will determine their bonuses. With this incentive program in place, you can be assured the Life Maid Easy team will provide you with an absolute 5 star clean every time. It's in their best interest to do so!
Is the pricing straightforward and easy to understand?
Your relationship with us will start off with your FREE Healthy Home Action Plan. From this we'll find out exactly what cleaning solution you're looking for, and then provide a detailed estimate for our services. From there you'll make the decision about going ahead with the cleaning, and decide on a start date. We'll then provide you with fully detailed invoices for each clean, so you're completely confident on what cleaning is being done.
How will you keep in contact with me and how does the relationship work?
Communication is a huge part of our business, we keep in contact with you via phone and email. We will send you confirmation emails with appointment dates, time and details of your cleaners 48 hours before their visit. The team will let you know beforehand of any delays or cancellations, and arrange alternatives to prevent any inconvenience. You'll also receive our newsletter and can access any news right here at www.lifemaideasy.co.nz
Based on the services you require we will give you an exact time frame during the home visit when we assess the requirements prior to the clean. Once we have given you the time we will ensure your deadline is met, and once again you will protected by our Diamond Standard Service Guarantee.
How will you have access to my home if I'm not there?
Absolutely, you can trust us with the keys, as all of our keys are coded and locked in a safe storage box which can only be accessed by the Directors of Life Maid Easy. Alternatively, if you have concerns with giving your keys to us, you can leave your keys in a safe place at your home and we will replace it once the cleaners have done the job.
You have a few options here. All payments are in advance of your service. If you aren’t home during our first visit, then we will ask you for the full estimated amount beforehand. We accept payment credit card only for all One-off cleaning services. Ongoing client have an option to either by credit card or setting up the payments for you automatically, by you completing a direct debit authorisation form. We accept Visa and Mastercard.
What happens if I want to cancel my appointment or move it to another day?
That can be easily arranged for you. Simply give us a call or send us an email and we'll happily reschedule your appointment to the next available date. If you wish to cancel your appointment we will provide you with a full refund, no questions asked. The only thing we ask is to give us 24 hours cancellation notice. This just helps us with scheduling other clients. If 24 hours notice is not given, you'll incur 50% of the estimated cost.
We operate in teams of two to three for maximum efficiency, as each housekeeper focuses on a particular area of the house. For your peace of mind we do checks at different times during the cleans to ensure our team is focused on the job and your home is cleaned to a high standard.
Will the same housekeepers clean my home every time?
If you are happy with the team and would like them to clean your home each time, we will strive to provide you with the same team every time, however this can't always be achieved. You are welcome to make prior arrangements by contacting our office ahead of time.
Can I be sure that the products you use won't expose my family to any health risks?
You don't need to worry as we only use green eco-friendly cleaning products and all of our cleaning equipment is bio-degradable as well. Green cleaning products are sourced from natural ingredients and are free from harsh chemicals that cause allergy symptoms. Your home will be left smelling clean and refreshing each time. The HEPA filtration vacuum also improves air quality so your family's health is in safe hands.
I have pets at home, do I need to let you know beforehand?
During your healthy home action plan you can let us know how many pets you have, and if they require any special attention. In most cases, your pets won't be a distraction and your service will be carried out as normal.
Not necessarily. We do recommend that you tidy any personal belongings or important document prior to the visit. Anything that you think could be a potential obstacle we recommend you tidy it before we commence cleaning.
