    "Windows cleaned inside and outside as well as side of house washed on 11/14/2021. Did an outstanding job. Windows look like new and cleaned all dirt and algae from siding & sunroom. The house is more cheery and seems to let in more light. It's amazing how much more we can see now. Windows were spotless. Unfortunately I can't post a picture but the side of the house was covered in algae and accumulated dirt. I think he wet everything down - applied a soap solution - and rinsed. Regardless, he did an outstanding job and made the house look great. I can't comment on price because we didn't get estimates. I thought the job he did was worth the price. Martinez is a professional who takes pride in his work. We will be doing this once a year from now on."

    "My elderly cousin had a pipe burst in the floor of her second story bathroom that resulted in the extensive damage and collapse to the ceiling and walls at the entryway of her home. Once the plumbing problem was repaired and the area was sufficiently dried, we contacted Beltway Builders to complete the repairs. We are very much impressed with how quickly Project Manager, Howard Bottiger came out to write the estimate. The man is extremely knowledgeable of his trade and courteous to my elderly cousin. She can be â a littleâ demanding at times. Howard realized that trait in her and simply rolled with comments. He provided us with the timeframe of three to four weeks to begin the repairs to allow enough time for the area to completely dry. It dried much faster that expected, so he started the work two weeks after the estimate was written. The crews that came out were nothing short of outstanding. The painters came in to begin painting the hallway and stairs. They covered the hardwood floor with plastic to ensure no additional mess was created. When they finished, they cleaned the entire area as well as the porch outside. The plaster crew came in to repair the damaged walls and ceiling. These guys are true experts in their craft. You cannot see any seams or depressions where the original plaster ends and the repairs begin. Just as the painters, they completely cleaned up the entire area and the porch. The painting skills and plaster work is second to none. One last thing that impressed my cousin about both crews, they were extremely quiet. They never had a radio playing. When the spoke among themselves, there was no loud speaking or yelling. I short, I highly recommend Beltway Builders to anyone for any kind of home repairs you may be needing."

    "Our roof & siding were cleaned. After the cleaning, our house looks almost new. The technician covered areas of landscape that he thought would be affected by the cleaning solution spray. If you have plants or bushes close to your home, it is important to request that they be covered. The technician will know if the shrubbery will be affected. The technician sprayed the bushes around our home with water after the cleaning to eliminate any burning of the foliage on the bushes. We are pleased with with our overall experience from beginning to end."

This team did an amazing job cleaning the unfinished part of my basement. They went above and beyond, taking everything off the shelving, wiped everything down and returned everything to the shelves. I don't think the floor has been this clean in along time. In the newly finished part, they cleaned all windows and wiped down all door, baseboards and other surfaces and vacuumed the rugs. They arrived on time and worked very efficiently. Thank you!"

    "This is a First-Rate business! The estimator (and owner) instills confidence during the estimate process, and the cost turned out to be significantly lower than three other (prominent) local vendors representing less costly brands. 2 of my A/C;s went out at almost the same time and he got one unit procured and installed in three work days and the next one in two more work days. The crew was prompt, wore face masks (Covid-19 era), courteous, very professional, cleaned up the work area perfectly when they left I would not hesitate to recommend them. I intend to use them for ongoing maintenance and service. An excellent customer experience."

Professional Cleaning Service
  • Insurance and bonding usually guaranteed
  • Reliability
  • More expensive
  • May have multiple people in your home

  • Keeping your home clean is a task that never seems to end, and it can take up most of your free time. Instead of spending your weekends mopping and dusting, consider hiring a housekeeper or cleaning service.
  • Unless a housekeeper performs specific duties regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency or your state or local government, no specific licensing is usually required to become a housekeeper. However, you’ll want to work with a professional who can pass a background check and has a current business license, liability insurance and a surety bond. You’ll also want to select someone who has the experience and can provide references, or someone who has received some professional training from a cleaning company.
  • Keep in mind when hiring any type of professional to clean your home that each state has its own requirements for licensing. You can use Home Advisor’s Contractor Licensing Requirements State-By-State guide to learn more. You can also learn more about the extensive screening process we use when allowing businesses to join our network.

When you hire a housekeeper or cleaning service, there are some questions you’ll need to ask to ensure you’re hiring the right person for the job. Writing down a list of services you want to be completed is a great place to start. This way, you’ll have all the information you need when you do interview a housekeeper or cleaning service, and they can provide you with accurate information and cost estimates.

What Services Do You Offer?

Find out upfront if the housekeeper or cleaning company offers the services you need, especially if you have requests that go beyond basic services.

How Do You Come Up With Your Rates?

Do they charge a flat fee each week? Do they charge an hourly rate? Some companies charge based on your home’s square footage or the number of bedrooms you have.

Do You Provide Your Own Supplies?

Many companies may provide some smaller cleaning supplies, but they may need to use your vacuum cleaner or mop. Others bring their own or none at all. And if you’re particular about the types of chemicals used in your home, you may want to ask what products they use or if they’re willing to use what you provide.

What Happens if Something Goes Wrong?

Anytime you have a professional in your home, something could go wrong. They could get hurt, or some of your property may be damaged. Ask what would happen in these scenarios — a well-qualified professional will have the necessary insurance and bonding to cover these situations.
