Dear PoPville readers,
Are you sick of reading about the pandemic? I get it. I’m sick of writing to you about the pandemic. But today I’m pretty thrilled to tell you that Well-Paid Maids, the D.C. area’s only living-wage cleaning service, is open and ready to work for you in a way that you’ll find more convenient.
Since we reopened in August, we have worked to serve customers within some pretty strict safety limitations. To keep our team and customers safe, our protocols included only servicing unoccupied homes, limiting the potential exposure of our employees during their commutes, and a variety of incentives to make sure that employees who might be ill could stay home without risking their livelihoods.
We have also spent the past month working to help our team get vaccinated (see above for some action shots!) by any means necessary — providing paid time off for their appointments, paying their transportation costs to and from vaccine sites and paying cash bonuses once they received all doses.
Because of the success of these efforts, in tandem with the success our country has had in suppressing the virus, I am delighted to announce that we will be lifting our most cumbersome restrictions. Starting June 1, we welcome you to book an appointment with no restrictions on staying in your home during the cleaning.
Our employees will still remain masked the entire time they are in your home, and we do still ask that you remain masked while sharing a space or interacting with them. We will continuously assess our safety policies to make sure we keep doing everything necessary to keep people safe — employees and customers alike — just as we have for the past year.
If your home could use a tidying up, a little TLC, or a good scrubbing, we would love to help. You can book an appointment any time, day or night, on our website. If you have questions, feel free to send a message to [email protected]. Our team of fairly-paid professionals looks forward to serving you.
