• When will my cleaner arrive?

    After your booking has been confirmed, (which is usually within 1-2 weeks of your service), you will receive a confirmation email. This email will contain a summary of your booking, including a line that shows the date and time of arrival. This will indicate when you should expect the cleaner. Please note there may be an arrival window, and the team will arrive between these times and then start cleaning.

  • What will my cleaner bring to the service?

    All our cleaners come fully equipped with their own cleaning equipment and supplies. However, if you would like a particular product or equipment used in your home you are more than welcome to leave it out for the cleaner. All of our cleaners are advised to disinfect and change all clothes and sponges in between services, and they are to use different clothes for bathrooms, kitchens and common areas.

  • What if I don’t have parking available for the cleaners?

    Please note that we require parking to be provided for our cleaning teams. If you live in the city or in an area where parking is difficult, please make sure to either contact us and let us know if we can use a private car parking spot or advise if there is public parking available. Any parking costs incurred will be billed on top of the service. If the parking provided is further than 100 mtrs from your property, then additional charges may apply. Please also note that if no parking is provided and no public parking space can be found (we generally will look for up to 20 minutes) then a cancellation fee will be incurred. Please provide as much flexibility with your start time as possible to help us schedule this for you.

  • Do I have to be home during the service?

    This is entirely up to you – you can be there for the service, let the cleaner in and leave, or even not be there at all. You are more than welcome to provide access to your cleaners by way of a key/lockbox. Please note that in general our cleaners work most efficiently when the house is empty of people and pets.

  • What if I am not happy with my service?

    We appreciate all feedback we get, whether it’s positive or negative. If you are not satisfied with your service, please email our office with details regarding what might have been an issue and include all relevant photos. We will then proceed with our 100% satisfaction guarantee and aim to provide a re-clean within 2-4 days of the initial service for any missed/unsatisfactory areas and/or look at an appropriate discount if required.

  • How do I make changes to my booking?

    You will receive confirmation and reminder emails before your service. At the bottom of these emails will be a link to create and sign into your account. You can make changes to your service that will be flagged in the office. If these changes don’t affect the cleaner’s schedule, they will go ahead. If your change clashes in the cleaner’s schedule, our friendly office staff will get in contact with you to try and reach a solution that benefits all parties.

  • Will I get the same cleaner each service?

    Generally, yes. We always endeavor to match you with a cleaner who will continue your service ongoing, however there are occasions such as public holidays, illnesses, emergencies, and travel/holidays that may impact your usual cleaner being sent to your property. We always try our very best to give you plenty of notice of any changes made to your service, but unfortunately, there are out of our control that may impact your service on the day booked. We cannot guarantee a regular cleaner for 4-weekly bookings (unless arranged directly with staff) due to scheduling issues.

  • Can I give the cleaner a key?

    Yes. Our office regularly runs reports on the keys in which the cleaners have in their possession. We strongly enforce only first names and the first initial of the last name to be on the key tag. Strictly no phone numbers, addresses or full names are to be on the keys at any time, so they cannot be traced back to the property. Alternatively, you can get a key safe from any general hardware store for your property and provide us with the code. This is starting to be a very common practice with our customers. If, for example, your cleaner can not make your service due to an emergency, the key is available for a replacement team to complete the service on the same day. We therefore highly recommend key safes or something like provide remote access.

  • Is window cleaning interior and exterior?

    Unfortunately, no, we only complete interior window cleaning, not exterior.

  • How do I contact the office regarding my service?

    You can contact the office via phone, txt or email. Our office hours are 9 am – 6 pm. Email: support@ritemaid.com

  • Do you clean under furniture?

    We will move and clean under small objects and light furniture. We will also vacuum/mop under heavy furniture (like beds and couches) however we will strictly not move heavy furniture. This is due to the high risk of scratching floors. We are happy if customers would like to move furniture for us, but we will not instruct the cleaning teams to do so themselves.

  • Can I book steam cleaning on the day of my clean?

    Yes, you can, but please keep in mind that steam cleaning may need to be staggered on the day of your service if the initial team sent to you are not trained steam cleaners. For example, your cleaners may arrive at 9am to complete the general cleaning and finish up a few hours later, then a different team will arrive to complete the steam cleaning. However, we do have a few cleaners that can complete all general cleaning as well as steam cleaning.

  • How can I cancel my service?

    You can cancel your service at any given time, either online or over the phone. We have no lock-in contracts that you need to worry about. Please note: all cancellations must be made 1 business day before the service is to take place. If a cancellation is made within 1 business day, you may incur a fee which covers the cleaner’s loss of wages. Please note that if we can cover the cleaner’s time through re-allocating work. We can sometimes waive this fee, but on occasion the fee must be charged.

  • What happens if damage is caused during the service?

    In the rare instance that damage is caused because of our service, please contact our team, and provide photos within 48 hours of the date/time of your service.

When a repair is not possible, a suitable replacement will be sought, and proof of purchase will be required. All quotes and proof of purchase must be provided within 30 days of the complaint being lodged.

  • Do the cleaners have police checks?

    Yes, all our cleaners are required to submit all checks before they commence any work.

All our cleaners must have an extensive cleaning history to be able to work for us.

  • Do you work on the weekend?

    We work on Saturdays as usual, however as we only have limited office support, our phone lines are closed. We can be contacted via SMS on: …………………. and if you need to speak with our team, please just message and we will text/call you back. We do not operate on Sundays.

  • How much does a cleaner cost?

    We offer exceptional cleaning at reasonable prices!

    Unfortunately, no, we only focus on interior work. We do, however, have a balcony service that is available as an added extra.

  • How many maids will clean my house?

    We work as a single person in most cases or in teams of two people depending on the size of your home and hours scheduled.

  • Must I be at home when maids clean my house?

    Not necessary. However, we encourage you be there to meet your maid for the first visit to show them your home and pass on the house key for future visits. It is also helpful to point out where all the equipment and supplies are kept and providing a list of your priorities (these may vary from visit to visit). The priorities list can be used by a substitute in the event your regular maid is ill. Your maid will do just about anything they can to help you.

  • Do I need to provide my own cleaning products?

    Yes, we recommend you choose to use your own products and equipment because of allergic or other hygiene/health reasons. Let us know if you require us to provide the cleaning products upon request with extra supply charges.

  • What are your charges?

    We have a minimum of 4 hours per service. For a free quote based on your household, please contact us.

  • How are the housekeepers employed/screened?

    All our staff undergo security checks before hiring, including a Background Check. This ensures that you’ll have complete peace of mind with our maids, even when you’re out of the house.

  • Do you work on Public Holidays?

    We do not work on public holidays. Your housekeepers, like any of us, have families and we believe public holidays are to be enjoyed by all.

  • Does the company have a referral policy?

    If you recommend to a friend and they sign on for a regular service, you will be credited a free 4-hour service.

  • Is there anything you don’t do?

    If it’s within reason, we can take care of almost all your cleaning, housekeeping and various errands. There are only a couple of things our maids won’t be able to do - high point cleaning (which would require your maid to stretch above their head/step on something to access the area) and cooking full meals (though we’ll be happy to engage in light meal prep).

  • Are you insured?

    While it’s unlikely any issues would arise, accidents can always happen and it’s essential to be prepared for any outcome. That’s why we’re Fully Insured, so you have complete peace of mind if the unexpected occurs.
