How Much Does a Maid Cost in Seattle?

What Does it Cost to Hire a Maid in Seattle


The Emerald City of Seattle can be considered one of most desirable areas to live in the US. However, Seattle's high standard of living often means high living costs.

The median home here costs nearly twice what it does elsewhere in the state. There are no shortages of grocery bills, housing, or transportation costs. So while the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue metro area remains a great place to live and work, it is by no means a place you can get by "on the cheap."

Seattle's maid and professional cleaning services can seem expensive to families. It doesn't necessarily have to be costly for you to hire a professional maid for your Seattle apartment.

Why you need a maid in the first place

The world is bustling. If you live near Seattle, there's always something to do outdoors as well. Part-time housekeepers, maids, and cleaning services can help you maximize your time and make the most of what you have. This is an excellent method to maintain your home's cleanliness while saving you time and energy to do what you enjoy.

You should also consider hiring a maid for your home to help keep your home clean and protect its value. Keep your investment in good condition and clean it often, as the average Seattle house is worth nearly $250,000. Mold, mildews, rot and other issues can damage your home or cost you a fortune.

In other words, a Seattle maid is the best option to protect and maintain your investment.

Understanding The Factors that Influence the Price

Before you can hire a maid or cleaning crew, it's important to know the costs of your service. This section will provide an overview of what you are paying for to help you get a better feel for the value NW Maids provides.

  • Types o Cleaning Companies

Cleaning companies come in many sizes and professional levels. Independent cleaners, or contractors, are independent teams of people or individuals who work on a case-by-case basis. Because they have control over pricing, they are often able offer their services at a lower price than corporate cleaning firms. However, they might not be able to offer homeowners all the insurance, licensing or security they would like.

However, most established cleaning companies do. Additionally, they often have larger, more skilled crews to complete more jobs every day. But all that extra work comes with a high cost, which is passed on to you as the customer. You will lose the "personal touch", of getting to know your maid personally and ensuring she or he knows everything about your home.

  • Safety

As we mentioned, different cleaning companies will offer different levels or security. It is possible to not verify the background of individuals entering your home through a single contractor. You might not be able to verify their backgrounds. They may also not have the insurance necessary to protect your home and workers from any unexpected events. Even though most incidents are rare in Seattle, many Seattle homeowners would prefer a thoroughly vetted cleaning workforce.

Bigger companies almost always have their licenses, bonds, and insurance against injury, theft and damage. Do not be alarmed if someone steals your jewelry. Be prepared for a maid to slip down the stairs and possibly sue you. Even though this isn't a guaranteed outcome, working with a large company can give homeowners some relief (at a small cost).

  • Professionalism

What happens if an outside contractor makes a mistake, charges you too much, or fails to provide the promised service? In most cases, the owner / operator is responsible for providing the unsatisfactory service. Unprofessional behavior is not something you can change.

If you have any questions or concerns, a large company will usually have a team of customer service representatives to assist you. It doesn't necessarily mean you won't have problems with customer service. But it can give you at least some security and protection.

  • The Type and Frequency (of Service)

You cannot reasonably expect to spend the same amount cleaning a five-bedroom mansion or a two bed apartment. Either way, you can't expect to spend the same amount on a touchup and a full-service deep cleaning. Some cleaning companies offer discounts for repeat or frequent work, whether they are independent or corporate.

All of these costs are taken into account before you pay for the service. It will cost more to have your cabinets, oven, refrigerator and other appliances detailed than to simply mop the floors. Be sure to ask yourself what services you require and how often before you start comparing different quotes.

Before you begin contacting cleaning companies to quote their services, make sure you know what is included in their price quote. Although it's always nice for you to get a great deal on cleaning services, keep in mind that they may not be available at all for security, professionalism or frequency.

Another thing to consider is that you shouldn't assume that large companies are immune from problems. With larger teams and greater service areas, it's possible to lose some customers.

Home Cleaning

How much do Seattle maids cost? It depends. That's okay. If a company tells you how much a particular service will cost, before they know how large your home is and what other services you desire, it's likely that you will end up paying far too much or getting poor service and security. To ensure that you get the best cleaning service, you should ask for a company that can cater to your individual needs.
