What if I want to eliminate rooms for a lower price?
Due to the already low maid service prices that our Referrals offer, we are not able to lower the prices on our housekeeping services..
How do I pay for my service?
Payment is accepted on the day of each maid visit. All of our first time house cleanings must be paid by cash. Thereafter, we can accept checks, cash or credit cards for our Referral Services.

How much should I tip my maids?
Tips are always appreciated, but not required...you decide.
Are your maids Independent Domestic Workers or Employees?
All maids referred are Independent Domestic Workers of Elite Maid. Elite Maid Referral Agency is not the employer of the domestic worker it refers to you. The domestic worker may be your employee or an independent contractor depending on the relationship you have with him or her. If you direct and control the manner and means by which the domestic worker performs his or her work, you may have employer responsibilities, including employment taxes and workers compensation, under state and federal law. For additional information, contact your local Employment Development Department and the Internal Revenue Service.
What if something is damaged when my home is cleaned?
The referred Domestic Worker treat your home with the greatest care; however should damage or breakage occur while the maids are cleaning your home, arrangements should be made directly with the maids, as they are independent domestic workers.
What if I am not satisfied with my maid that you refer?
If you are not satisfied for any any reason, we will refer a different Domestic Worker on your next scheduled visit. Your complete satisfaction is very important to us.
Do you offer Gift Certificates?
We sure do! Contact our office for details on our maid service gift certificates.
What is your cancellation policy?
We require 24 hour notice if you need to change or cancel your scheduled cleaning. Less than 1 day notice may result in a $25 cancellation fee.
