I hate cleaning.
Ha ha. The last time I wrote about cleaning, I said I ‘loathed’ it because hate is such a strong word, but after some months, I’ve decided ‘hate’ works for this. I really hate cleaning, lol.
There’s just a lot of things I’d much rather be doing.
This past year, Mike and I decided that paying for convenience is worth it – especially when it comes to house cleaning.
We’ve decided once a quarter, to invest in a deep house clean.
In between, we’ll handle the week-to-week (or every other weeks to weeks…)
As you can imagine, our house gets pretty messy pretty quick with four animals (two dogs and two cats) all under the same roof.
So we were thrilled when our next quarter house clean was coming up at the same time that Mad Maids reached out to see if I’d be interested in giving away house cleaning services for readers of this blog!
I’m excited to give away $200 and $50 gift cards for house cleaning services through Mad Maids.
Read on for a quick recap of the deep clean they did for us, and enter to win at the bottom of the post!
With four animals – our house gets pretty messy pretty quickly.
Mad Maids actually started in Calgary in 2013 and expanded to Edmonton at the end of 2015.
There’s a lot of house cleaning options out there, so I asked Mad Maids what sets them apart.
This is what they told me:
What sets Mad Maids apart from other cleaning services is our focus on using modern technology for customer service and convenience while maintaining a high quality home cleaning experience.
We were the very first company in Alberta to offer a visible flat-rate pricing structure to make things easy for customers and also the first to offer online booking.
Since we started, a couple of local companies have followed our lead but the vast majority still make it more time consuming for the customer, requiring a call or even a home visit to obtain a quote for cleaning.
Our clients are busy people and we wanted to eliminate this for them and have made the process quick, easy and hassle free. All it takes is 60 seconds to book a cleaning on our website (even less if the customer already has an account with us), automatic recurring cleanings with discounted rates if desired (so the customer can ‘set it and forget it’ having us show up at the same time every month or week), and email or text message reminders as desired.
We value good, honest, old-fashioned service and cleaning with a touch of modern convenience!
Our cleaning started at $159 (for a 3-bedroom clean) + an additional $50 for a deep clean.
You get quite a bit with just the flat rate service (check out what’s covered here) with a bit extra (including detailed baseboard cleaning) with the deep clean add-on.
Thank you Holly and Amy from Mad Maids!
Holly and Amy were our cleaning extraordinaires!
They did a quick tour of the home before getting down to it.
Shining the windows.
We were delighted at how thorough they were!
The thing about flat rate house cleaning services is that you don’t have to worry about how long the work takes – you won’t be charged any more for it if it does run long.
Mike and I did hang around for a bit while they cleaned but the beauty of having cleaners come to your home is that you don’t actually need to be there (at least, after the initial greeting).
Since they were being thorough, we left for a few hours and were so thrilled to come back to a clean home!
My favourite room in our house is made better when it’s CLEAN!
The shiniest stove.
Mike’s bidet has never been cleaner.
Mike and I were impressed with the quality of cleaning we received from Mad Maids.
The price points are pretty much on par with the previous cleaning service we’ve used (iMaid), though Holly and Amy with Mad Maids did do more (things like moving couches to get underneath, cleaning inside the microwave, etc.)
They were also very friendly!
I’d definitely recommend Mad Maids, but why don’t you try for yourself?
