General

Are the cleaners vaccinated?

Yes, all of our teams have been fully vaccinted

How does Long Island Maids work?

Easy!.

Long Island Maids is a cleaning company. We made booking a house cleaning online super simple. We clean and disinfect using EPA-registered products and non-toxic UV treatments. Our cleaners are vaccainted, insured and bonded, and trained to deliver the best cleaning service you'll ever have.

We also provide an easy, 100% cashless way to book, schedule, tip your team, provide feedback, and manage all your cleaning appointments online.

Does someone need to be present?

Whether or not you're at the space during your cleaning appointment is up to you! When you make a booking, you'll be prompted to give us entry instructions. If you have a doorman or can hide a key somewhere, there's no need for you to be home. Or, feel free to stick around during the clean (but please follow social distancing guidelines). Whatever you're most comfortable with is fine.

In any case, please don't forget about your appointments. We'll remind you with an email or text message, but if the cleaner can't get in the door by following your entry instructions, or if you aren't home when you said you would be, you'll be charged a lock-out fee.

Is Long Island Maids insured and bonded?

Yes, Long Island Maids is fully licensed, insured and bonded. We understand that the trust you gave us to be in your home, and we are always careful. In the unlikely event that an object is damaged, please notify us within 48 hours of when the appointment is completed either by email ([email protected]) or by phone or chat

Is Long Island Maids pet safe?

We love animals, but they don't always love us. If you think your pet may become overly anxious while we are there, please make temporary arrangements while we are in your home. We will ask about pets during the online booking process.

Our cleaners bring a travel wet/dry mop that will be used on non-carpeted areas. If you do not have a vacuum, the cleaner will not be able to properly clean any carpeted areas.

Office Cleaning

Why get your office cleaned?

We understand that a clean workspace can reduce the likelihood of employees getting sick, thus allowing your business to be more productive (and more profitable). We follow best practices in eliminating pathogens such as bacteria and viruses, using EPA-registered cleaning disinfectants.

A clean workspace has been shown to reduce the probability of catching the common cold by 80% and reduce absenteeism by 46%!

We clean during both. Our cleaning staff is able to clean day and night, depending on your preference.

Many customers give us a key for after-hours cleaning, so we can clean without disrupting your work. Our cleaning staff are insured and bonded, and Long Island Maids will coordinate all necessary documentation with your building manager.

Yes, all of our cleaners come outfitted with a full kit of cleaning supplies & equipment to bring on site. If you select ongoing service, we also provide heavy equipment such as vacuums, mops, dry mops, and squeegees.

Is there manager oversight?

Absolutely. Long Island Maids takes pride in on our quality control. Our manager typically joins the cleaners on their first clean, and follows up periodically, by email and in person, to make sure we consistently do a great job. Additionally, we value client feedback and encourage our clients to communicate with us when their needs change.
