How is Glory Cleaning different from part time maid agencies and online marketplace platform ?
Part time maid agencies are as their name suggests – an agent. They connect you with a worker, take their agency fee and their job is done (unless you are unhappy with the cleaner and then they help you find a new one , usually within a time frame with a restricted number for replacement ). The cleaners are not related to the agency, and once the connection is made you will have to deal with the cleaner yourself.
On the other hand, we are also not a online platform connecting our website users with independent cleaning providers. Glory operate on a company model. The cleaners work with Glory on a permanent part time long term and their quality of service reflects on our company. Our relationship with you doesn’t just end after we pair you up with a cleaner. We are here with you every step of the way for as long as you stay with us. We get feedback from our clients to better understand their cleaning needs . If you run into any issues, rest assured that we will be here for you. Moreover there is no limit to the number of replacements nor time frame for change as long as our manpower resources permit .
Glory has hundreds of renewal customers every month for monthly servicing packages.
Any hidden costs or contractual obligations?
Not at all. While part time maid agencies charge an agency fee which averages $200-$300, our registration fee is one-time @ $100 only for every new customer, which Glory is waiving currently for the introduction of online booking and booking for 2 months service . You pay only what is stated in the website and nothing else. There is also no obligation to engage us for a duration after 2 months . Start whenever you want, and if you no longer need the cleaning service, you can stop anytime by giving 2 weeks notice!
How do I pay for the cleaning service?
All payment must be made securely online through our website. In order to ensure your credit card information is safe, we use PayPal’s payment gateway to process payment. (Note: Do not pay the cleaners directly.)
