Basic Maid Service

Maggie Maids basic cleaning package usually involves maid service of up to 2 to 4 hours. The allotted time of our residential house cleaning services depends on the size of your home, how often it is cleaned, and the conditions we walk into. If it’s been awhile since your home was last cleaned, and you require a more extensive house cleaning, you may want to begin first with our deep cleaning service package and then switch over to the basic package for ongoing cleaning service. The basic package is best suited for regular service; perhaps weekly or once or twice a month.
