Dear PoPville readers,
According to the EPA, the average home has levels of harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are 2-5 times higher than what is present outdoors.
To make matters worse, the typical household cleaners used by most cleaning companies have dangerous chemicals that can cause irritation and long-term health problems over time, creating unnecessary risks for you, your family and your pets. And the person with the most direct exposure, your home cleaner, is often forced to work without the proper safety wear or training.
Well-Paid Maids is changing that. Our employees use only products that have received a “Low Concern” or “Lowest Concern” rating from the Environmental Working Group. That means no fumes, no watery eyes, no coughing and no chemical smell. Most customers report a slight citrus smell or none at all and our employees consistently tell us that our safe cleaning products are one of the best parts of working for the company.
On top of our commitment to health and safety, we are the D.C. area’s first and only living-wage home cleaning service, where all employees make at least $17/hour and receive a full benefits package, including 22 paid days off, health, dental and vision insurance, 100% employer-paid short-term disability insurance, and 100% employer-paid commuting costs. Additionally, everyone we hire is a true employee, not an independent contractor, which means they receive protections such as unemployment insurance and workers’ compensation insurance.
