How Many People will Clean my Home?
We provide solo technician cleaning. We actually started with team cleaning and decided to change to solo cleaning to better serve our clients. Why does solo cleaning mean better service?
- The Technician You Know and Trust: All our certified cleaning technicians have passed a rigid screening & hiring process because we never take chances with “marginal” employees like others do. We know that our foundation between you and Fresh Tech Maids is trust. Every day, we work our hardest to earn your trust!
- Not in a Hurry and It Shows: A solo technician only cleans two homes per day. She is not in a hurry. We invest our most precious resource, time, in every home, every day. Solo technician also ensures greater ownership, personal attention and accountability for the quality and care of our cleaning.
- On Time Arrival: a solo technician will arrive on time, as she only cleans two homes a day. A team needs to travel 4 to 7 homes per day and more likely to be late due to the uncertainty of much longer travel.
- Consistent Quality: With only one certified technician entering your home she will know your home and your preferences so well that she will provide you the consistent quality every time. Guaranteed!
How Much Does It Cost?
What Will It Cost?
Our pricing is based on the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Simply go to our booking page and enter this information and you will your price. Our online pricing engine is based average cleanliness of a typical home. If your home’s condition is unique, we will contact you and inform you the adjustment we need to complete the cleaning.
Why Do Prices Vary With Maid Services?
There is a common practice in our industry to offer “super low” prices and then, fail to deliver. Many maids in our industry are poorly trained, do not understand client service, can’t even speak English, clean with harsh chemicals, are illegal immigrants, are not full covered by insurance, or are contractors that expose clients for substantial tax and other financial risks. We advise all potential clients to stay away from these “super low” prices which are designed to get-the-job. Look for companies who focus on sustained get-the-job-done-right.
Discounting for Weekly, Bi-Weekly and Monthly Services?
We offer discounted prices for recurring cleanings vs one time cleanings. In addition, we also offer discount for initial cleanings. We charge the same price for initial cleaning and recurring cleaning, even though initial cleaning require longer cleaning time.
Your Tipping Policy?
We encourage clients to tip for great service. We also want to share with you about tipping statistics. Less than 10% of most clients tip regularly. In Nov and Dec, more than 80% of our clients tipped.
Am I Potentially Liable for Worker’s Compensation Insurance or Taxes?
No. Fresh Tech Maid Services takes care of this for you by never hiring independent contractors. We only use our own employees who are covered by our Worker’s Compensation Insurance.Back to Index

Why Is There a Two Hour Window?
Our two hour window allows us to handle the unpredictability of cleaning services. Homes are different sizes and require different levels of effort needed to make them clean. So predicting the time spent at a home is incredibly difficult. In addition, we have to deal with other unpredictable factors like traffic, weather etc. Thanks so much for understanding.Back to Index

Questions about Cleaning Products
What Supplies Do We Use?

We highly recommend that our technician to use your vacuum to reduce the likelihood of cross contamination.

Please let us know if you would like to provide your own special supplies by adding a note to your account after you book.
Fresh Tech Maid specialize in chemical free house cleaning which is cleaner, healthier, and safer for your family and pets. For repeat services, we often can eliminate your exposure to harmful chemicals by at least 95%. In the meantime, cleaning quality is enhanced instead of compromised due to chemical free cleaning.
Is Chemical-Free Cleaning the Same as Green Cleaning?
They are different. Green cleaning is chemical-based cleaning with friendlier chemicals. Chemical-free cleaning minimizes chemical use and reduces cleaning chemicals by 95% to 100% for regular cleaning.
The 3 Key Advantages of Chemical-free Cleaning vs. green cleaning are:
- No Airborne Toxins – safer cleaning. All cleaning chemicals, including green cleaning chemicals, have chemical reactions with soils on the surface to be cleaned. The chemical reaction helps detach the soils from the surface, but it also creates airborne toxins. Chemical-free home cleaning does not use chemical reaction as the mechanism for detaching surface soils. Thus, no airborne toxins are emitted.
- No Chemical Residues – healthier cleaning. Chemical-based cleaning leaves visible and invisible chemical residues on surfaces. These cleaning chemicals and chemical by-products remain in the home environment, meaning more health risks for kids, pets and everyone else. Chemical-free cleaning leaves nothing toxic behind.
- No Promotion of Germ Growth – cleaner cleaning. Green cleaning utilizes the friendliest chemicals to organisms and humans to minimize the negative impact. The residues from green cleaners are so organic and friendly to bacteria that they may actually provide a rich food source for them, encouraging the growth of the very microorganisms we are trying to eliminate and control. Chemical-free house cleaning does not provide any opportunity for bacteria to feed.
