Are You Crash Proof?

Peoria, IL -- An apartment building is a mess after the building's cleaning lady drove her SUV through a brick wall. Maricella Cuevas says she accidentally hit the gas when pulling into a parking space next to the apartments.

Now, there's a car-sized hole in one of the apartment's walls. Cuevas says she regularly cleans some rooms in the building. The car crash knocked a stereo cabinet onto the legs of a woman sleeping inside the building. She was taken to a hospital, but the injury is believed to be minor. The cleaning lady who ran into the building was startled by the crash, but was not hurt.

Of course, this article is funny since no one was seriously hurt. The apartment building may need some renovation - but other than that - it's just a funny side story.

But what would have happened if the cleaning lady was hired by you to clean your house? And what if your cleaning lady was just a cleaning lady - not a cleaning business? This is what would happen.....

1. You would be forced to pay for all damages.
2. You would be forced to pay for all injuries.
3. You would be forced to pay for all lost income as a result of the injuries.

And in the end, you would even be forced to hire someone else to clean your home!!!

If you're bound and determined to save those few bucks by hiring a cleaning lady, then you should know that you are assuming the same liability as a professional cleaning business.

You're an employer - not a customer.

Theft By Individual Maid

A person recently wondered why we post so many articles about maids stealing from customers. The person thought that such negative talk could lead to a negative impression of our own business. The answer should be simple.

The constant posting of articles detailing thefts by individual maids should serve as a constant reminder that cheap sells. Individual maids are cheap. That's their thing. An out-of-work maid knows that the easiest way to make some quick money is to simply offer ridiculous low rates and the customers start rolling in.

It happens time after time. And all sorts of problems arise soon after the hire. Some people are lucky. Some people just hire real bad cleaners. Some people just hire unprofessional cleaners. And some people aren't lucky at all. Some people hire individual maids that steal.

A quick Google search of news articles across this country reveals countless numbers of articles that proves my point. You are risking everything by hiring an individual maid.

There are several reasons to hire a professional housecleaning company. One reason is because our customer service is 100% better than someone that is just cleaning "on the side". Another reason is because you become a customer rather than an employer. But one very important reason should be obvious. The safety and security of your family is at risk when you an individual maid. I'm serious. It happens everyday. Don't let it happen to you.
