Hiring an independent is definitely one option you could consider. But here’s the thing, when you hire a professional maid service like You’ve Got MAIDS you get so much more. We take full responsibility for the state, and federal taxes and we deal with the unemployment taxes too. All our Maids are fully covered by our Workers Compensation Insurance so if they should trip, slip or fall whilst in your home you don’t need to worry about trying to deal with a claim on your own homeowner’s policy. Also you don’t need to worry about any break in service while the injury heals or the cleaner is in re-hab. We have fully trained staff on hand that can step in so your home can remain clean and sparkly. We also run a drug free workplace with a documented random drug testing program in place.
