From the moment "The Maids" arrive at your door in their sparling clean bright yellow car filled with cleaning supplies (and, most important, cleaning people, you know you are in good hands. Typically, four women, immaculately dressed, pleasant, and filled with energy come together, spread out over your house, and spend several hours cleaning. Although some of the workers speak little or no English, there is always one person who is fluent who can take direction from the home owner and give direction to the others. I do not know what the current rates are for cleaning but they have always been fair and the work is completed quickly and efficiently. Give them a try!
