It’s peak moving season, and with moving comes an endless to-do list.
The worst task? The final clean before you officially hand over the keys. Mopping floors, dusting baseboards, cleaning appliances, scrubbing the bathroom… For renters, the list feels especially daunting with a security deposit at stake.
Instead of dedicating hours (and buckets of sweat) to a thorough move-out clean, let Well-Paid Maids handle it.
With Well-Paid Maids, all cleanings include:
- Vacuuming and mopping.
- Countertop, table and mirror cleaning, including refrigerator and oven exteriors.
- Sinks, toilets and showers cleaning.
Plus, you can add extras, like cleaning the inside of the fridge, cabinets, microwave, oven and more. (Does anyone really know how to clean the inside of an oven besides the pros?)
Online reviewers love letting Well-Paid Maids help them with their moves.
Yelp reviewer Steve T. wrote:
“My apartment is as clean as when I moved in! My cleaner (Diana) did a really thorough job with an attention to detail.”
Google reviewer Sandra wrote:
“I want to give a special shoutout to Nishad, who cleaned my place before I moved out. He did a wonderful and meticulous job getting my place clean from top to bottom and stayed until the job was done… By the time he was done, the apartment was cleaner than when I moved in!”
Perhaps even better than glowing reviews? Well-Paid Maids is New York City’s only living-wage home cleaning service. It pays employees at least $26 an hour. Plus, they get comprehensive benefits like 22 paid days off per year. That means you can feel good supporting Well-Paid Maids.
Moving out and wanting to skip the dirtiest part? Go ahead and settle into your new place — book your move-out cleaning with Well-Paid Maids.

I should certainly hope a cleaning includes the bare minimum basics — why are these items being advertised as some special extra? If I paid for a cleaning and it didn’t automatically include these things I would feel robbed. This is like when you book hotels online nowadays and they try to justify their exorbitant rates by making you think you are getting special amenities in your room “free wifi, fancy soap, comfortable bed” — these are all things you should expect to be there, not extras.
Thanks for your comment! We simply wanted to provide a snapshot of what you can expect with our cleaning service since all cleaning companies operate a little differently. From our wages to our service, we’re all about transparency around here!
I’m not sure I get this. You are trying to provide a maid service that pays the maids well yet you are still a “middleman” service. So if you are transparent please tells us what your take is (from the looks of it a lot!) and how that is justifiable rather than end customers just finding a maid independently and just paying them all of the money directly which saves the customer money. Maybe I’m missing something here, what value does your middleman service provide and how is it worth your take?
Why not start a not for profit that passes nearly all of the money onto the maids if it’s all about them?
Hi Teddy, Thank you for your interest in our business model! You can learn more about how we operate by visiting our About and FAQ pages: https://www.wellpaidmaids.com/about/
I believe I looked into this service, or a similar service, once, and the “fine print” is that the customer is responsible for all paperwork and payments as far as the government is concerned. It’s the same as directly hiring a maid yourself, but the “service” sets the pay. The customer’s paperwork/payments include federal tax withholding, state tax withholding (?), Social Security withholding, and workers’ compensation insurance in case a maid is injured. If I’m hiring a maid service, I want the service to take care of these issues.
Following the link to the company’s web site that was provided directly above, I can see that my concerns do not apply to this maid service.
