    "Kings Home Cleaning Service was hired to clean my empty house prior to our real estate close. Paula responded to my request quickly and we were able to connect and plan the job. My husband and I had already moved out of state so I had to rely on our cleaning contractor. I felt confident that she and her team would do an incredible job and they did!! I’m delighted that the new owners will take possession of a clean home. Thank you, King Home Cleaning."

    "We finally found reliable and honest chimney cleaners. Through the years we have had various cleaners who either didn't show up, or didn't do a good job. Shamrock chimney cleaners were courteous, thorough and honest. They came to clean 2 chimneys, but I did have them inspect a few others. They were honest that the others didn't need cleaning this time. Now I feel confident lighting our fires in the cleaned chimneys.I trust them and hope to have them back every year!"

I've been using their services for about three months now and I love how they are punctual, efficient, and trustworthy. The couple had a very pleasant demeanor. The house looked amazing, was so much tidier and it sparkled and smelled so good. They actually moved the furniture while they were cleaning! Another huge plus is they are affordable. On very short notice they helped clean up my friends house .They arrived on time, worked efficiently, for a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend this service to all my friends. They did a fantastic job!"

    "From our initial phone call on Saturday afternoon after discovering a leak from a tank under our stairs, to the completion of the job, my husband and I were thoroughly impressed by Heritage. As mentioned, we called on Saturday afternoon and got an answering service. Within 10 minutes we received a call back from a very friendly woman in customer service, who gave us an appointment for Monday afternoon, since it was (fortunately) not an emergency. Got a phone call when Dennis P. was on his way, which was at the beginning of the time window we were given. When he arrived, I showed him where the issue was and let him take a look around. He came to me a short time later with not one or two but five different options of varying price range. I really appreciated that he took the time to write all that up and go over it with me, and that I never felt pressured to do additional work. I was happy that I was given choices and was not given a sales pitch of things that "had to be done." Dennis did discover a couple issues, including a septic pipe that was not capped, but literally just covered with a piece of aluminum foil. Needless to say, I was thankful that he took the time to go over the system and see if there were other issues and that he alerted us to this problem. Not happy that our home inspector missed it! My husband was also very impressed with Dennis - he was very friendly and personable, as well as very patient; explaining things to us without a lot of technical jargon, and making sure we understood and were comfortable with the information. We were both amazed at how neat and professional the work was, and that Dennis had completely cleaned up any trace of the work he did when he was done. This was our first experience with Heritage and while I can't speak to what it may have cost if someone else had done the same work, I can honestly say that my husband and I very happy that we called Heritage, and that we worked with Dennis. We certainly don't have money to burn, but we also know the value of hard work, professional excellence, and peace of mind, and we feel that we got all of these in our experience with Dennis and with Heritage."

    "I hired Wentworth to clean the ducts at my fathers house. Gary did a fine job both on the phone in providing us all the needed information on the duct cleaning process, scheduling and price. On the day of the job Gary let us know what time he would arrive and did a thorough and professional job. My Dad was very pleased with the work and though he was skeptical that he even needed the ducts cleaned he was glad we got it done. Gary even did some extra work for him for free, which really pleased him."

    Hood and Range Cleaning

    "I moved into my condo with a Viking stove 5 years ago. It was put in ten years before that and from what I can tell, has never been professionally cleaned. I would attempt to do it myself but came to the conclusion I needed help. I had so much trouble finding a company in Boston that would do residential cleaning and finally stumbled upon Shawn on HomeAdvisor. The before and after state were remarkable. I plan to have Shawn come back once a year to help with general upkeep. I didn't realize how dirty my hood/vents were until after he cleaned them. The oven looks news. I would recommend Shawn to anyone looking for a thorough cleaning of your oven/stove/hood. He told me he does grills as well! Thanks Shawn!"

Professional Cleaning Service

  • 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.
