Think a house cleaner is a luxury you can’t afford?


Here’s the going rate for professional house cleaning services and what additional tasks may cost you.

Keeping your house clean can be a monumental task, especially if you work full time, have young children and or pets. As a result, many busy homeowners are hiring professional house cleaner to help lower their stress and make their lives easier.

House cleaning services are fast becoming a necessity due to longer commute distances, stagnant wages, increased child upbringing demand and combination of all other home ownership errands.

But how much should house cleaning services cost?

How house cleaning services charge

Professional house cleaners typically set house cleaning prices one of two ways: By hour or by square foot. But there is a catch! With franchise cleaning companies their fees are structured in a way that they exploit the most out of their every sale. They charge you by the size of windows, number of windows, number of corners, length of doors, hallways… estimate number of decor items or picture frames… Like any of that really matters.

Rates will also differ based on how often you want these professionals to clean. The more times a house cleaner comes in a month, the lower the price per visit, though this is often a matter of $5 or $10 per clean. At Honest Maids this savings can sum to hundreds of dollars per visit.

Individual cleaners versus cleaning companies

Cleaning companies have to be bonded, most offer insurance protection to its maid employees that cover personal and property damage for each service visit. Traditional freelance individual cleaners do not offer bonded or licensed services. Having to pay for Bonding and Insurance does typically mean an automatic increased in fees, maybe up to $5 per visit. Choosing an individual just to save $5 is not really worth the risk.

Many individuals also run their own cleaning businesses but may not be licensed and often want to be paid in cash or by personal check. Their rates are typically lower, and often their ability is equal or superior to large companies. But there’s little recourse for a homeowner if a job isn’t done completely to your satisfaction, especially if the cleaner chooses to shut down his or her operation. There’s also a concern if an individual cleaner gets ill or has a personal emergency. Some who have hired individuals have reported being taken advantage of by their individual housekeeper. Companies, like Honest Maids have backups available all trained for efficiency and reliability.

What you get for your money

While there’s no “standard” for cleaning services, most house cleaners in phoenix will include basic tasks such as dusting, vacuuming, toilet scrubbing, shower cleaning, general kitchen cleaning and tidying up. All Honest Maids visits are considered deep because we do more during each visit such as cleaning base boards, dusting/wiping floor corners, scrub bathroom and tile as needed and more.

According to according to Dr. Gupta being constantly stressed can cut up to 5 years off your life.

Some professional house cleaners bring their own tools and products with them, while many individuals want you to provide the necessary cleaning supplies.

Extra costs in house cleaning

For those who charge primarily by the hour, if you want a particularly deep clean in an area, or require specific products, expect to pay more.

When you hire Honest Maids either for 1 time visit or recurring you will get truly honest, reliable, screened, and efficient professionals who won’t charge you more for special requests, bring their own state of the art tools and best selection of cleaning products that are environmentally friendly and safe for your and your family.

Having a cleaning service visit your home is no longer a luxury, it has become a necessity that is needed for many to remain happy, have stable homes, less stress, less hassle and enjoy more personal free off-work time doing what you like. Honest Maids was created with that purpose – help eliminate stress because we know first hand how horrible this silent killer can be. Without services like ours, long work ours and even longer commutes, short days, children and family needs… you don’t stand a chance. Check out our services and fight for a healthier life.


Maids, We’re Not Losers

Maids of Phoenix Home Cleaning Services

We have been in business for a short while, but this is a good thing. Our team is working harder than any other maid service out there to ensure your complete satisfaction. Honest Maids team members are not afraid to work hard and earn your trust and complete satisfaction.

Running a business is harder than it seems, you might think “Oh, she has a cleaning business. That’s super easy to launch!” or “Wow, she got a business degree and is doing that?” Some people even go as far as assuming that me and my team are doing this because we can’t do anything else. Well let me tell you that running a cleaning company is difficult, growing it much more. Also know that you offering house cleaning as owner operator is not the same thing as running a company that is competing with large multi-million dollar franchise companies.

I’m writing this because I want to share some aspects of growing a business.

Part of our compensation and benefits to our maid team is that we will work with them to build a team of dedicated members under each who commits to the values and efforts Honest Maids is about. We will do our best to get them their own franchise in their own area fully and independently operated by them. This letter should give them a bit of insight too onto what they should expect. There are days were Honest Maids receives 10 calls a day, there’s others where we get none. In this environment marketing and pricing is everything but we are working hard to build a trustworthy brand that doesn’t have to compete on price alone and instead compete based on quality and commitment.

To do so, there is a branding effort that must take place, the strategies for this are time consuming and any misstep can cause the entire plan to fail. We depend a lot on social media- why? Well

  • Franchise companies have hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in Google Search results, we can’t compete with that.
  • Referrals are huge in this type of business, we are still building ours – most clients will freely share with friends but is harder than it seems to get customers to go to Yelp or others to leave a good review. Unless that review is bad, then you better bet they will be there.
  • A lack of Yelp or Google or BBB reviews is actually a good thing because of this, but few people realize that. Social Media remains key.
  • My husband is a marketing genius! Really! He has achieved for our website to receive hundreds of visits a day on a $0 ad budget. All content and all just good PR which is free.

We would love to use Yelp, and although you can leave reviews there of us we don’t promote in it. WHY NOT?

  • Yelp is running like a mob, unless you are a business you might not realize that you get blackmailed into spending “advertising” with them.
  • Competing businesses are promoted in your own profile!! Unless of course you pay hundreds of dollars a month to keep them from doing that.
  • My personal thought is that once you receive a call from them and reject their “ads service” they stop or reduce the search results for your business!! I tracked this after I noticed a sudden drop in visits where before we had a ton of traffic. – Again, my thoughts based on experience.
  • This leads me to this, if you want Yelp to show more of your business you guessed it! You gotta pay!
  • If you want to have a slideshow of your products or completed services…Yup! You gotta pay!
  • Restrict Competitors Ads on your own page? Yup, you gotta pay!
  • Then they have their actual ad services which help you in return appear in competitors profiles.

So as you see, marketing can be difficult and expensive. Social Media is by far the best approach, as a business owner there are many things I need to make sure get done, like payroll and other HR issues, sales are being processed, insurances and bonding get added to each job and maid member, answer customer and employee phone calls (although my husband takes care of this for the most part).

My husband, he has been helping with a lot of the workload, but the burden falls on me since this is my business and my company. Employee and Customer satisfaction is a team responsibility. So as you can see, there is a lot to do no matter what business you are in and marketing, building a reputation, crafting an image, spreading the word, getting visitors to your website, complying with state and local laws, keeping customers happy, earning trust, building a team, helping with cleans, training and growing the business is not a menial task. It requires a savvy entrepreneur who can take on big enterprises and do so with her chin up.

Yes we clean homes and do so with pride.

November is the best month to sell a home

family painting project

Downtown Panorama of Phoenix, Arizona

Believe it or not! November is by far the best month to buy and or list a home in Phoenix, AZ!


senior home buyersHi! I’m Humberto (Marketing) I hold an Arizona Realtor license, although I don’t ‘hang it’ at a broker’s office, and I tend to look at the trends in the market (I also do this for marketing purposes for Honest Maids) and I have found out that November is actually the best time of the year to list a home here in our lovely Phoenix Arizona.

Most Arizona home buyers refuse the idea of listing a house near thanksgiving or Christmas time and this holds true to buying. WHY? Well think about it, you might have plans to travel to visit family or family might be planning to visit you for the holidays, the last thing you want to do is be in the middle of packing or unpacking all of your belongings. October/November  is just the right moment during the year giving you plenty of time to work on the house, clean it up to take some nice pictures and have it listed through the month and end of year. The beginning of the year is when a lot of those who don’t buy in September or October will buy in because the holidays are past and income tax season for many equals down payment money. Plus families are eager to start the year in a new home.

family painting project

Those who are looking to purchase a home before the holidays negotiate more aggressively and those who don’t have the time for it simply often offer more than original asking price – If you are a seller what I find even better is that a lot of sellers often take their homes off the market during the holiday season (You know, to avoid having to show their home during their Thanksgiving break). Less homes listed means less competition and more exposure. Motivated buyers and sellers can take advantage of the perfect timing October brings to the Phoenix real estate and get a home sold with reduced asking prices, maybe having the appliances or that pretty coffee table they have included.

Are You Ruining Your Hardwood Floors?!


Many Arizona homes don’t have hardwood floors but the ones that do often enjoy the added warmth and character it gives to the house. Hardwood flooring can give your house a modern or rustic look depending on your decor style – As long as you take care of the floor properly. Caring and cleaning flooring in general largely overlooked in a house!


1. Don’t let spills wait.

Letting milk, juices or other liquids to sit on the hardwood floor will often stain permanently the area ruining your beautiful hard wood flooring or costing you much more to fix. Dry up with a cotton towel tapping on the floor instead of wiping smearing around.

2. Not Having an Entry Mat.

I know, I know… If you have a modern style you probably don’t want an ugly mat at your entrance but having a mat to scrub your shoe soles clean, tap on it to loosen small rocks and or to leave your shoes behind can drastically improve the lifespan and shine of your floors.

3.High heels.

Entry mats remind me! If you often wear high heels you are scratching the grains of the wood, this almost microscopic wood scratches will build up giving your wood a worned-out look also making spills harder to completely clean out and avoid stains.

4. Not Sweeping often!

This can be hassle, but lucky for you there are amazing professionals like Honest Maids that will do this for you at each visit. When you sweep, you are removing lose particles like rocks, gravel, dirt, food, dust that are scratching your beautiful hardwood flooring. So sweep and vacuum often… better yet, let us do it for you.

5. Use the right type of vacuum!

Not all vacuums are created equal! There are some vacuums that are not meant to smoothly glide through your floors and lack the suction strength required to pick up from a flat surface. If you use the wrong attachments you could also be scratching the floor as you try to avoid just that by removing the lose particles. Our professional team here at Honest Maids of Phoenix Arizona use Dyson vacuums with more suction power than most and with special attachments just for hard smooth flooring like hardwood.



Christina’s {a wife’s, working mom’s, family cook’s} busy day


Christina’s {a wife’s, working mom’s, family cook’s} busy day

Team-Member-2Early, fun, hectic, happy and sometimes magical!

As a full-time worker, wife, mother to two children (ages 5 and 7) and, as my husband will tell you, someone who likes to “do it all, and do it right” every day is a constant juggle and quest to create more time out of less and less available time. I have a regular job like any other person. Here is my day:

Wake-up: I’m an early bird—so I try to seize “Christina’s time” first thing in the morning (on weekends mostly). I get up between 4:30-5:30am and quickly scan my email, brush my teeth and get the kids’ stuff ready. No time to do the bed.

Breakfast: Super quick, something simple. No time to pick up and clean the kitchen.

School Run: You know how it is. Hectic in the morning and hectic in the evening.

Work Day: Well, you know that is too. Mostly blah.

Family Time: 6-7:30pm is family time, as many nights of the week as I can make it. When I get home I try to have something in mind for dinner, prepare it quickly so we can get to homework. Hubby helps me clean the kitchen sometimes, but often times there are other things that go neglected so is always a balancing act – what to clean and when to clean it.

(Sometimes the kitchen stays dirty until the weekend when we have more time to actually clean good and give it a fresh start for the following week)

Bed: By 9:00, that’s the goal anyway. But because we have so little time after work for family, homework, dinner, and clean up and then showers and prepping for bed we often lay down around 10:00 or 10:30! Only to wake up again at around 5am.

Weekends: We use about half a day to clean the entire house and wash our clothes. I do it mostly myself. Sometimes the house is so dirty I split the cleaning into Saturday and Sunday. I’m tired.

Honest Maids of Arizona cleans with all natural cleaning products, featuring Jessica Alba’s Honest Company cleaning products.

When me and my husband were writing down things on what was going to become the Arizona Honest Maids business plan one of the main things we both figured were important to us was the trustworthiness in the products we used in our home. Jessica Alba had then, recently launched her Honest Company and we loved the products we had tried. Their products are pricier than other non-organic or green products available but in our experience they are worth every penny.

Honest Maids is proud to announce that part of our Health Responsibility and Promise, we offer Honest Company cleaning products to you at no extra cost!
