Testimonial From Gulf Breeze

"I cannot say enough great things about the ladies. They continually go above and beyond my expectations. They even clean the cat dishes and make the baby's crib up! As a single parent with a husband in Afghanistan their little touches make such a difference.

Keep up the great service!"

Kimberly from Gulf Breeze, FL

Cleaning Up By Cleaning Out

STUART, FL -- Laura Scoggins had a long criminal history, but people left her alone in their homes. Detectives say Scoggins took advantage of the freedom, going through jewelry boxes and stealing valuables.

Scoggins is a former employee of a cleaning service and is charged with taking items from the homes of clients and her employer while performing cleaning services.

Scoggins served time in prison for drug and theft charges before this latest crime spree.

And there you have it. A housecleaner with a drug and theft conviction. Which means that you have a housecleaner that is not bonded. Which also means that nobody is getting any type of monetary retribution more than likely.

When you hire a professional housecleaning company, demand that your cleaning company prove to you that each and every employee is bonded. Because you can't be bonded if you've been convicted of theft.

There's a reason you don't let strangers into your home at night. Why should it be any different during the day?

Even Government Doesn't Get It

Even government doesn't get it.....

Pro's & Con's Of Hiring An Individual Maid

The Pro's
- CHEAP. The most obvious benefit to hiring an individual maid is the low rate. Individual maids are cheap. In some cases, very cheap.

- SAME PERSON. Some people prefer seeing the same cleaning person each visit. An individual maid is only one person, so you should be able to receive the same cleaning person each time.

- QUALITY. There's a chance that you may hire the world's most ambitious housecleaner. She's not cleaning for money. Nope, she's cleaning because she loves cleaning. Believe it or not, it happens. And when it happens, there's no cleaning company on earth that can compete against it.

- CHEAP. The low cleaning rate of an individual maid needs to be mentioned twice because that's the biggest reason for hiring an individual maid.

The Con's
- CHEAP. That low rate offered by an individual maid may look cheap on the surface but you're missing one big point. What if she quits? What if she's late? What if is she breaks something? What if she hurts herself? What if you owe additional payroll taxes? And what if she steals from you?

The answer to each question is that the cheap rate will suddenly become real expensive. When she quits, you have to hire someone else - your time is money. Same goes for late arrivals - who wants to sit around all morning waiting on a maid to show up? The rest of the questions are obvious. But we've provided a few real-world examples for illustration.

What if she breaks something?
What if she hurts herself?
What if you owe additional payroll taxes?
What if she steals from you?

- QUALITY. There's a chance that you have hired the world's best cleaner. But there's also a chance that you have simply hired an out-of-work person that needs some quick cash. And starting a housecleaning business is one of the easiest ways to make some quick cash. The question you need to ask yourself is this.... Are you a customer, or are you a side job? Because side jobs don't get the same attention as customers. When you hire a professional cleaning company, you're a customer. We think housecleaning from 8 AM - 5 PM Monday-Friday. Housecleaning is our focus and that should be a big deal to you.

- FLEXIBILITY. You can cancel at the last minute and we won't care. You can rearrange your cleaning schedule at the last minute and we won't care. You can even schedule a cleaning 12 months in advance and we'll guarantee that we'll be there - and on time! We don't get too sick to work. We don't get pregnant and quit work. We don't move out of town. And we don't sleep too late every now and then. We show up when you tell us to show up. Something even the best individual maid can't promise.

- CUSTOMER SERVICE. To sum it up best, professional cleaning companies treat their customers better than individual maids. Plain and simple - no doubt about it. And the reason that professional cleaning companies treat you better is because our entire day is centered around serving your needs. We don't use notebooks to schedule your housecleaning. We don't use your supplies to clean your house. And we don't take a day off and ask to reschedule your housecleaning. We clean houses and nothing else. And that's great to hear if you're wanting to hire a housecleaning company.

The Formula For Theft

Step 1. Create a business name that makes you sound like a real business. ABC Cleaning Company. Superior Maid Service. Whatever it takes to sound professional.

Step 2. Plaster posters all over town offering a cheap rate.

Step 3. There is no step three. That's all it takes to get invited into your home. Cheap rates with a professional name.

How An Individual Maid Gets Away With A Crime

It's really simple. An individual maid gets away with theft because you let her get away with it. No, I'm not referring to actual theft from your home. I'm referring to theft from our government.

Here's how Two Maids & A Mop is collecting money from you and giving it to our government:

Payroll Taxes - Each dollar that TwoMaids pays in wages is taxed. Two Maids & A Mop pays a percentage of that tax and the employee pays of percentage of that tax. This tax funds things such as medicare and education.
Social Security - Each dollar that TwoMaids pays in wages is sent to the Social Security Fund. Two Maids & A Mop pays a percentage of that tax and the employee pays of percentage of that tax. This tax funds your retirement.
Sales Taxes - Revenue generated from commercial cleaning (offices) is taxed by at least 6%. This tax funds local projects such as road construction and fire departments.
Federal Income Taxes - Any and all profits generated by Two Maids & A Mop is taxed accordingly. This tax funds anything and everything - from military expenses to government bailouts.

Here's how an individual maid is collecting money from you and giving it to our government:

Payroll Taxes - Zero.
Social Security - Zero.
Sales Taxes - Zero
Federal Income Taxes - Zero.

Obviously, it's not fair. But that's not the point. The point is that our government relies on its people for survival. Roads aren't built for free. And your social security check has to be funded by someone.

This much is true. If you are hiring an individual maid, then you are committing a crime. So is your individual maid. You probably don't care - especially if that means incredible savings.

You voted yesterday because that's your civil service. It doesn't end at the booth. Either hire a professional cleaning company or demand that your individual maid stop involving you in a crime.

Just because your theft is anonymous doesn't mean that you aren't taking money out of someone else's pocket.
