What Do Maid Services Include?


If you’re anything like most homeowners, you don’t have time to tackle every mess life throws your way. And that’s fine—you shouldn’t have to.

What you should have, however, is a plan to supplement your cleaning efforts. But if you struggle to answer questions like “When is it time to call in the reinforcements?” and “What type of cleaning solutions does my home need?”—fear not.


Cleaning Up the Confusion: What Do Maid Services Include?

Whether you live in a small-to-moderately sized home or a large one, it’s in your best interest to start thinking about how you’re going to prepare for house guests well before they arrive. Let’s be realistic—your time spent working, r

Despite what outdated societal norms suggest, there’s nothing wrong with hiring a housekeeper. Whether you have a busy schedule or physical limitations, the bottom line remains the same: The decision to hire an outside help is about what’s best for you.

And for many Seattle homeowners, professional maid services are the best way to keep their space tidy. Here’s 10 examples included in a standard house cleaning:

1. Dusting

Using microfiber cloths or electrostatic dusters, your maids will wipe down the following surfaces to remove allergens:

  • Furniture
  • Shelves
  • Picture frames
  • TV Stands
  • Hard-to-reach areas

These services often also include baseboards, window sills, door frames, and other areas that might collect dirt and grime.

2. Vacuuming

Professionals use high-powered vacuums to clean carpets, rugs, and upholstered furniture in every room (living rooms, bedrooms, hallways, and stairs, etc.). Even better, they have specialized attachments to remove dirt and pet hair from tight spaces.

3. Mopping

While this is typically for the tile or hardwood floors of kitchen and bathrooms, if you have any other hard surfaces throughout your home, rest assured knowing you’ll have the help to remove tough stains or grime.

4. Kitchen Cleaning

Professional maid services include the cleaning of kitchen areas and appliances, both inside and out, like:

  • Countertops
  • Sinks
  • Cabinets
  • Refrigerator
  • Stove
  • Oven
  • Microwave
  • Dishwasher

5. Bathroom Cleaning

If bathroom cleaning is your least favorite chore, maid services include the cleaning and disinfecting of toilets, shower stalls, and bathtubs, on top of disinfecting high-touch areas.

After a long day at work, cleaning is the last thing you want to do. If a busy schedule is keeping you from keeping your home tidy, it might be time to hire professional help.

6. Laundry

Whether you need help washing, drying, folding, ironing, or sorting clothes, supplement assistance isn’t too far away.

7. Window Cleaning

To put it lightly, the PNW gets more than its fair share of precipitation coating your windows in dirt and grime. Luckily, Seattle maid services can clean them inside and out—even those hard-to-reach two-story windows.

8. Organizing

What good is having spotless countertops if the rest of your house is cluttered? Fortunately, organizational services tidy up your closets, pantries, and other messy areas of the home.

9. Deep Cleaning

Surface-level work only accomplishes so much. To truly create a tidy home, you must invest in a deep, thorough clean. That’s why maids offer specialized cleaning services, such as:

  • Stain Removal: Have any hard-seated water stains around your sink? Can’t seem to remove that pesky soap stain in the laundry room? A professional housekeeping service has the equipment needed to combat tough stains.
  • 360-Degree Cleaning: During these services, maids clean every aspect of your home. From kitchen cleaning and fridge removal to sanitizing doors, walls, and baseboards, they’ll clean everything inside-and-out.
  • Hard Floor Care: Whether you’ve got dirty tile in the bathroom or a dull, aging hardwood floor, deep cleans help bring your hard floors back to life.

10. Additional Services

Larger, more established maid services have additional resources to clean areas like:

At the end of the day, professional cleaners are a cost-effective, dependable way to ensure your house stays tidy. It’s important to note, however, that service quality differs between providers. That’s why it’s so important to find the right provider.

Dianna was amazing! She was very punctual, thoughtful, and detailed in cleaning and organizing things in our house. She went above and beyond. She really gave us a fresh start after being displaced in our home for the last 4 months with two toddlers and a kitchen remodel and several other dusty and dirty home projects. Thank you so so so much Dianna! God bless you! It feels like a brand new home in here!!!!

She was very nice and went about her work very quietly. All of the rooms were nice and clean. The kitchen and bathroom fixtures all shining like new. Appliances and sinks were nice and shiny. Overall I am very happy with the clean apartment. I love the purple top, just to remind me of the company name. FYI, I just moved in to this apartment in May and have made some tiny improvements in the appearance, but as the years go by, just not able to do all that I wish to do. Glad for the help.

Diana was friendly, efficient, and left our place nice and clean—we had a deep clean from a certain big cleaning company recently and she got spots they missed even though this was a standard clean! So glad we got someone with her level of professionalism. The company communicates well, answers questions quickly, and makes it easy to schedule cleaning.

We signed up with The Purple Maids to provide support for some friends and didn't realize we'd see them in action when we dropped by our friends' home for a little visit last week. Diana was doing beautiful work and it was a delight to see what a blessing she is to our friends! She was very thoughtful with regard to coordinating use of space as she cleaned, and she took time to do some "little extras" that really impressed us. We're so thankful for Diana and The Purple Maids!!

Libby and Florinda did such a thorough and wonderful job. It was my first experience with the service and I’m so thrilled with the job they did. Anastasia and Gloria were great at scheduling me and walking me through the service. 100% recommend!

Excellent results!! I am very impressed. My family and I moved out of a rental and wanted to have it cleaned professionally. I’ll admit that I was a little nervous when only one lady showed up to clean a 2,000 square foot home, but Valaria is an army of one. This girl cleaned every inch in every corner. She didn’t miss a single cob web. And the bill was even on the low end of the quote! I couldn’t be more pleased and I will be booking these folks for all of my future cleaning needs. Thank you Purple Maids!!

Anastasia and her team are wonderful! We have had several cleaning companies clean our house, and they are by far the best, most thorough company we have used! They are so friendly, easy to work with, and payments are easily handled. Would highly recommend!

We started using Purple Maids at multiple multi family housing complexes in Pierce County once the pandemic hit to utilize their Covid-19 disinfecting services in our units. This giving our new tenants ease that their unit has been fully disinfected and sanitized prior to moving in. The staff is professional and responsive from the easy scheduling to the cleaning service they provide. I would highly recommend Purple Maids!
