Well-Paid Maids Review: “I Feel Like I Can Just Relax in My Space”

In 2017, Shirley and her husband were looking for a cleaning service for their D.C. apartment. Both worked high-stress jobs that required them to spend long days away from home.

“We didn’t have the time or even the mental space to think about cleaning,” Shirley said.

They tried out several services, but it’d take a long time for a crew to clean their small space — and it never actually felt that much cleaner.

“It was a totally different experience with Well-Paid Maids,” Shirley said. “Every time they come and clean, after I’m just like, ‘I feel so much better.’ I feel like I can just relax in my space.”

The D.C. couple began using Well-Paid Maids in 2018 and have been loyal customers ever since.

Initially, they were attracted to the company’s ethos. Well-Paid Maids pays its cleaners a starting wage of $22 an hour, and they’re offered insurance, 24 paid days off per year, 100% employer-paid commuting costs and more. They’re also covered by unemployment insurance, workers’ compensation insurance, and D.C.’s paid family and medical leave program.

But the couple also loves how easy it is to work with Well-Paid Maids. They have their cleanings set to autopilot, but if anything changes, they can just email the office to reschedule. Plus, the same cleaner shows up each time, so they get to know the couple’s cleaning preferences and can take any feedback into consideration. 

“We really get to know them, and we feel really comfortable with them being in our house,” Shirley said. “They feel more like a member of our household.”

Even their dog gets excited for cleaning day.

Shirley and her husband agree: As long as they live in the D.C. area, they’ll continue using Well-Paid Maids.

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
