“Life is too short to put up with cleaning your own home.”

Busy moms have all been there.

In the rut.

You’re an alarm clock, cook, maid, teacher, waitress, referee, nurse, chauffeur, handyman, event planner, personal assistant, counselor, ATM.

You work all day and night.

It’s one thing after the other. With no true breaks.

Nothing seems to go as planned — ever.

You don’t get paid holidays, sick pay or days off.

You’re on call 24/7 for years on end.

Sometimes you struggle with everything that needs doing and spending quality time with your child, significant other and yourself — can lead to feelings of self-doubt and guilt.

Understandably, you sometimes feel:

  • Taken for granted,
  • Judged,
  • Misunderstood,
  • Frustrated,
  • Isolated,
  • Unsupported,
  • Overworked,
  • Exhausted, and even
  • Bored out of your mind.

You need help.

You need to advocate for yourself a bit more.

If you already have a maid service, how’s that going for you?

“Life is too short to put up with unreliable maid seravice.”

Chances are they’re dropping the ball in some important ways. One mistake becomes two, two mistakes become three, four, five or more mistakes.

You see a whole pattern of dysfunction and broken promises.

What originally started as a good idea — “get some help” — wound up adding needless hassle and frustration to your life.

Are you just unlucky with house cleaning services?

The problem is not you, it’s the house cleaning industry itself.

Top 5 Issues Make Up 95% Of The Problems

Understanding why the vast majority of maid services are so unreliable is KEY to avoiding most of the problems with them in the first place.

You see, 5 major issues are the root cause of about 95% of the problems busy moms experience when doing business with maid services.

They are:

#5. Inadequate training
#4. High employee turnover
#3. Lack of cleaning inspections
#2. Lack of communication
#1. Lack of systems and processes

Because most cleaning services do not adequately address these top 5 issues, inconsistency, unreliability, employee theft and low attention to detail are the result.

That is a recipe for busy-mom dissatisfaction — followed by maid service after maid service, again and again. In fact, the typical cleaning service loses on average 55% of it’s client base every year.

Take, for example, “#4. High Employee Turnover.” Average annual employee turnover for the typical maid service is roughly 200-300%, according to industry experts.

That means you can expect to have 3 or 4 different solo cleaners clean for you in your first year alone. That’s 6 to 8 different cleaners for cleaning teams of two.

High turnover stems from many problems including poor vetting, inadequate training, awful management, low wages and benefits.

Good news: though employee turnover in lower-skilled, lower-wage jobs tends to be significantly higher in any industry, the best cleaning services have figured out how to greatly reduce turnover by taking a holistic approach.

So how do you avoid picking a lemon of a house cleaning service?

Ask the cleaning company’s rep some questions about what systems and processes they have in place. Get specifics. What do they look for in a cleaner? How do they vet and train their cleaners?

What quality control processes do they follow? Do cleaners follow a set way to clean? Do they use some kind of checklist, say a “50-point cleaning checklist,” or not?

Note: Many services proudly advertise some kind of long checklist used by their cleaners, implying that they are not only thorough but “systems oriented.” While having a checklist certainly helps, it cannot make up for a lack of well thought out systems throughout the remaining 99.98% of the business.

You should ask some probing questions that cover each of the top 5 issues listed above.

Do they inspect their cleaners’ work and how? How do they treat their cleaners? What is their turnover rate?

You get the idea.

A referral is no guarantee

All cleaning services love getting referrals.

However, for a prospective cleaning client like yourself, getting a referral is no guarantee that you’ve found that diamond-in-the-rough maid service. Just because someone else is happy with a certain cleaning service doesn’t mean that you will be.

Everyone’s wants and needs are different.

Perhaps your referrer got lucky. For instance, you might not get the same results because cleaners other than the ones cleaning your referrer’s home are sent to clean yours.

You could request having the same cleaning tech(s) clean your home. If granted, just keep in mind that good employees — working for the average maid service — tend to move on after a while.

Anyway, the point being, you should still ask at least for some details along the lines outlined above. Yes, some due diligence will be needed on your part.

You should be qualified

People are crazy busy these days. So booking a cleaning service online has become the norm because it’s so easy.

But there’s a lot to be said for talking to a cleaning service rep either in-person or on the phone and asking some good questions. It’ll give you get a much better sense of what kind of company you’ll be hiring.

You yourself should be asked some questions beyond things like square footage and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms:

  • Not only to find out exactly what kind of cleaning help you are looking for — in order to help ensure that their cleaners satisfy your expectations
  • But also ask you questions in order to qualify you, the prospective client.

Ideally, it should be a little bit like a job interview.

Don’t roll your eyes….

Hear me out.

Though the whole process should take maybe 10 or 15 minutes on the phone, it can save you quite a bit of hassle and frustration. Maybe even save you from making a big mistake.

Hiring a cleaning service is not unlike starting other kinds of relationships.

You wouldn’t start dating someone without knowing something about them. Would you?

That brings us to…

Oh yes, “The Churning Game”

Are you a good fit for their cleaning business?

Not that you should care — except that a good service shouldn’t want to deal with a problem client any more than a client wants to deal with a problem service.

Would you start dating someone who’s willing to date just about anyone who comes along?

Being asked a few probing questions also demonstrates caring on the part of the cleaning service.

A company that accepts online bookings from anyone or whose rep doesn’t ask some basic questions in-person or on the phone is chasing after dollarsand not clients who their company can best serve.

With an industry average 55% loss of client base per year, the vast majority of maid services aren’t too picky about who becomes a client. And a service that isn’t picky about who becomes a client isn’t too picky about the quality of its service.

Got Systems?

Take my word for it.

As chaotic as your life may seem at times, it is not a complete mess.

In fact, if you are like most everyone else — myself included — you probably take for granted all of the countless logical, individual systems that work 24/7 producing all the wonderful results you experience in your life.

You know what I’m talking about: all those systems and subsystems around and within you that make breathing, gravity, electric power, thinking, photosynthesis and myriad other critical things possible.

So where am I going with this?

Why am I going on and on about systems, anyway?

Because systems are not just the reason for what is going right with your life. They are also your key to unlocking more of what you want out of your life right now.

Believe it or not, you are a wonderful mom.

Like everyone else, you just have some important areas of your life where you’re not experiencing enough of the quality of life or the results you’d like.

Let me ask you…

Do you want:

  • More personal time,
  • More energy,
  • Better physical health,
  • More emotional serenity,
  • More solid relationships?

Of course, you do.

Do you want a sparkling clean, healthier, more comfortable home environment?

Of course, you do.

Sure, having a cleaner, healthier, more comfortable home may not be your top priority. After all, with all that’s on your plate, something’s gotta to give.

But having more free time, energy, better health, emotional serenity and stronger relationships are probably high up there on your wish list — or would be if you just felt that they’re within your reach.

Well, having more free time, energy, better health, emotional serenity and stronger relationships AND having a cleaner, healthier, more comfortable home are all within your reach…

You’re just going to need much better systems than you probably have now. After all, quality of life and quality results are themselves results of quality systems.

We Got Systems

That’s where Alchemy Maids comes into the picture.

I’ve consciously built the company from the ground up brick-by-brick, system-by-system so that our busy mom clients — women very much like yourself — can actually experience the peace of mind that comes when a maid service actually delivers on its promises.

It wasn’t easy.

Creating scores of processes and systems isn’t for the faint of heart. But I knew from experience that having them in place would take away the vast majority of the headaches for our mom clients (and myself, too).

Alchemy Maids is an up and coming house cleaning service.

We’re not perfect. And there’s certainly work to be done to improve ourselves.

But we’re already miles ahead of the typical maid service in terms of consistency, reliability, security, and high attention to detail.

You’re probably thinking, “But EVERY house cleaning company says the same thing:

‘We deliver the best cleaning results. We hire the best cleaners. We do the best job vetting and training them. We’re super reliable. Super consistent. Blah Blah Blah.’”

And you’re right.

All maid services make the same promises.

However, very few — maybe a couple dozen nationwide — have actually done the work to build the necessary high-quality processes and systems that create high-quality results for clients like yourself.

Like I said, we’re not perfect but we’re well underway to building Alchemy Maids into a turnkey business that seamlessly blends together what we call “Our 4Ps”:

Our Principles

The essence of our company comes in the translation of our Principles (purpose and core values) into the very fabric of the organization — into policies, processes, cultural practices, management behaviors, pay systems, job design, etc. — into everything we do.

Purpose

Beyond making money, we exist to “work” our systems to perfection in order to create high-quality results that promote greater peace of mind for our clients and ourselves.

Core Values

  • Peace of mind
  • Being real
  • Having fun
  • Making money
  • Helping out

Control of the circumstances of our lives is a good thing; orderliness and attention to detail are the roots of peace of mind….

…and are the results of having quality systems in place.

Our Processes

By leveraging the power of our systems, we help our busy mom clients to gain greater control of the circumstances of their lives so that they can realize:

  • More personal time,
  • More energy,
  • Better physical health,
  • More emotional serenity and
  • Stronger relationships

While enjoying the benefits that come with having a sparkling clean, healthier, more comfortable home environment.

Our People

We had a choice: cleaning technicians could either be the most fantastic part of our cleaning business or the bane of your existence and ours. We chose the former.

We select, train, on-board and manage our professional home cleaners as though our business depends on them (it certainly does). We train and treat them significantly better than most of our competitors. We have much lower turnover among our maids and that translates into better service for you (and higher profits for us).

Our Products

Why pay someone to introduce potentially harmful pollutants into your home?

Live In A Cleaner, Less Toxic Home Environment

Unlike many well-meaning “green” home cleaning services and solo cleaners,1 we absolutely do not introduce harmful substances into your home:

  • No toxic residues left on surfaces
  • No air pollutants
  • No ingestible toxins
  • No harmful chemical interactions
  • No acute exposures
  • No toxicities with long-term health effects

Imagine What It Would Be Like

What would you do with an extra eight hours a week?

What changes would you make in your life?

Imagine what it would look like to have more control over the circumstances of your life:

  • Coming home to a sparkling clean home,
  • Having more quaility time for yourself, your family, and your circle of support,
  • Having more sustained energy to do everything you want,
  • Being able to exercise more often,
  • Having less stress in your life and
  • Having stronger relationships with those you care most about.

Wouldn’t having a consistent, dependable cleaning service make a real difference in your life?

“The value Alchemy Maids offers is tremendous. The time savings and my peace of mind makes it worth every penny. My home is cleaner and much easier to manage now. I recommend them whole[-]heartedly.”

–Sharon Metzner, Bronxville, NY

A Systems-Oriented Business Doing The Work

  • Benefit: You enjoy having more control over your circumstances and the results you achieve using our consistent, reliable, secure, and highly detailed cleaning service.
  • Avoid: Headache, frustration and squandering your money on a typical (near-systemless) maid service that can’t seem to get its act together.

  • Benefit: You get very consistent, reliable, high-caliber cleaning results.

A Rotation Cleaning System

Only for clients who choose our Best Cleaning Package.

Though most cleaning tasks need to be done every visit, others only need to be done periodically.

Over time, with the vast majority of cleaning services, periodic tasks just don’t get done. Or, if they are done, you’d be charged an extra fee.

After your first cleaning, we perform one periodic task each visit on a rotational basis, ensuring that even fewer areas of your home are neglected.

Periodic cleaning tasks include the insides of your oven, refrigerator, cabinets, closets or windows; wet wiping your baseboards; sweeping patios, wiping down patio furniture.

Clients who choose our Better Cleaning Package will still enjoy the benefits of our systems approach to cleaning their homes.

See our “Service Package Comparison” page for more details.

  • Benefit: More areas of your home are cleaned more often so that your home stays in tip-top shape.
  • Avoid: Having the cleaning of areas of your home fall through the cracks.

Thoroughly Vetted Cleaners

Most maid services experience ongoing pressure to hire warm bodies to fill frequent cleaning job vacancies. They experience such high costs in terms of employee turnover that they don’t have the funds or time available to have a third party do proper criminal background checks.

Vetting a prospective cleaner should also include performing a thorough interview process and on-the-job training review in order to ensure that she/he can not only do the job satisfactorily but also has the right character and temperment.

  • Benefit: Knowing that the people doing the cleaning in your home are upstanding citizens with good character and morals.
  • Avoid: Wondering if the people doing the cleaning in your home have shady histories.

Thoroughly Trained Cleaners

Another area of employee development too often glossed over by most maid services due to time and money constraints and lack of systems.

  • Benefit: Knowing that the people cleaning your home are professionally trained in the cleaning products, equipment, and systems they are using.
  • Avoid: Having your gorgeous wood floor’s finish ruined by a cleaner not trained in the kind of cleaning methods that ensure that won’t happen — and other such nightmare scenarios.

Thoroughly On-Boarded Cleaners

  • Benefit: Knowing that the people cleaning your home fit our company culture and are truly motivated to do a great job for you.
  • Avoid: Unpleasant, immature, malcontents cleaning in your home who are not motivated to do a great job for you.

Well-Paid Cleaners

We don’t pay slave wages.

Our cleaners are probably the highest paid in southern Westchester. I’m more than okay with that.

Somewhere along the way most people somehow got the idea that it’s okay to pay domestic labor peanuts for their hard work.

  • Benefit: Knowing that the people cleaning your home receive higher pay for the superior work they do.
  • Avoid: Wondering if the people cleaning your home are exploited, undocumented workers earning peanuts for their hard work.

Thoroughly Supervised Cleaners

  • Benefit: Knowing that the people cleaning your home are accountable for high performance standards.
  • Avoid: Wondering if the people cleaning your home are really doing a good job or not.

Engineered Water

It’s the main cleaning solution we use. Engineered water is simply water that has been modified in some way for cleaning purposes.

It comes in different forms. Most of the time, the type of engineered water we use is ordinary tap water mixed with salt that has been electrolyzed to make cleaning and sanitizing solutions. It’s the safest, greenest cleaner known today.

  • Benefit: Knowing that the people cleaning your home are not introducing pollutants into your living environment.
  • Avoid: Wondering if the cleaning products used in clean your home are harmful to the health of you, your family and your pet(s).

Vaporized Water

Another form of engineered water (tap water that’s been modified) that we use. It’s basically heated water that effectively kills and removes mold and mildew from bathroom tile and grout. It’s also extremely safe and green.

  • Benefit: Knowing that your bathroom mold and mildew has been safely and in an environmentally-friendly way.
  • Avoid: Wondering if the mildewcide products are making you, your family and your pet(s) sick.

We Bring Our Own Equipment And Supplies

  • Benefit: Not having to remember to keep enough cleaning supplies in stock for the people cleaning your home on an ongoing basis.
  • Avoid: Having to remember to keep enough cleaning supplies in stock for the people cleaning your home on an ongoing basis.

Bonded And Insured Cleaners

Each cleaning technician is fully bonded and insured.

  • Benefit: Knowing you’re covered if something breaks or goes missing.
  • Avoid: Wondering if you’re covered if something breaks or goes missing.

Reverse The Risk Guarantee

“ We guarantee that our thoroughly vetted, trained, on-boarded and supervised cleaning technicians will clean your home to your satisfaction or we will return to fix the problem. Just contact our office within 24 hours after the cleaning. And if you’re still not satisfied, we will refund 100% of your money AND pay you $100 for your trouble.”

Next Step…

Think how much it is costing you — in personal terms — every day that you don’t take action on this problem.

Why wait? Take more control of your life today and get the results you want.

Ouroboros in alchemy is the mandala formed by a snake eating its tail, symbolizing the unity of life.

With respect to Alchemy Maids, the ouroboros symbolizes the unity of life made up of countless systems and subsystems. Which is in keeping with the spiritual-scientific ethos of the old-time alchemists.

The upside down triangle is the alchemical symbol of the feminine and the water element.

Appropriate, since our main focus is serving a busy women clientele. And we use engineered water (i.e., tap water that has been modified: either electrolyzed or vaporized) to clean their homes.

Transmutation in alchemy is to be understood on multiple levels — spiritually, symbolically, and physically.

“The inner development of the alchemist is one of the fundamental keys to the process.”

— Brian Cotnoir
