All natural!

You’ve Got Maid is pleased to announce that we have switched to all natural products!  Our main cleaner has always been environmentally friendly- Vinegar, Water, All Natural Dish Soap, but we have really struggled with finding a replacement for the Comet-type cleaner we were currently using.  After a good deal of trial and error (and much patience on the part of our staff- thank you, girls!) we do feel we have come up with an effective alternative- Baking Soda, Borax, and Eucalyptus essential oil. We have also added a natural Soft Scrub mix to our cleaning roster that we find useful when a little gentle abrasion is needed. 

We would love to hear from our clients if they have any feedback on these new products!  Also, let us know… is this something that is important to you?  Do you use environmentally friendly products in your home?  Do you specifically look for ways to reduce the use of chemicals around your pets and children?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christmas Special!

One month to Christmas…. WHAT???  Now is a good time to remind you that a gift certificate from You’ve Got Maid is a great idea for those hard-to-buy people on your shopping list!! We ran this special last year with great success and would like to offer it to our regular clients again this year:

For each cleaning Gift Certificate purchased in the amount of $100 or more, we will give you 50% off one of your regularly scheduled cleaning appointments.  So you can cross some names off your shopping list AND save money! You can purchase a Gift Certificate directly from our secure website using PayPal or your credit card…. these can be printed up and presented in person or emailed directly to your intended recipient.  It’s very easy to do and can be personalized with your own message. Once you’ve presented your gift, the recipient can contact us at their leisure and we will look after the rest! Shop from the comfort of your living room and with a few simple clicks avoid the malls and give a unique and thoughtful gift this holiday season.  What could be better than that?

For those people who purchase a gift certificate and do not meet the “Regular Client” requirements, we will be pleased to enter your name into a draw for a Free Three Hour Clean (as long as you are within our service area).  This contest also runs to December 31st, 2013.  Winner will be contacted via email.  Free clean must be used by March 31st, 2014 or the offer is void.

Please Note:  you must ensure that your recipient is within You’ve Got Maid’s service area-Ridge Meadows, Mission, Walnut Grove and the Tri-Cities.  The term “regular client” means you must use our services a minimum of six times/year and will be based on your 2013 service schedule.  This special will run from November 25th, 2013 to December 31st, 2013. 

Congratulations to….

Going back to the GST/PST

Hello everyone,

I wanted to touch base with our subscribers and clients regarding the April 1st switch back to the GST/PST system. Of course since we are a service based business we will go back to charging the GST only.  Now I realize that it is a popular (and somewhat disgruntled) consensus that businesses will not lower their prices to reflect the fact that they are collecting a lower tax rate.  I have to admit that this has crossed my own mind in regards to other service based businesses.  In light of this I really and truly am hesitant to lump us in with these businesses who will appear unwilling to give their clientelle a ‘break’…. but we have indeed decided to keep our rates the same when the change comes into effect.  Now there is sound reasoning behind this and I wanted to be sure to share the logic of this decision with our clients.

The main thing is that we have not implemented a rate increase in the three years that the HST has been in effect. We are affected by rising prices, like any other business of course, and are optimistic that maintaining our rates going forward will help to offset our rising costs of doing business.  We reallly do appreciate each and every one of our clients and will continue to strive for the personalized, efficient, caring and friendly service that we feel we have delivered in the past.  We are also pleased to announce a rate freeze effective for all of our current clients through to April 1, 2014.  I do feel strongly that our rates are extremely competitive and our services superior to other cleaning companies that would rank as our direct competition, so in this respect I feel that maintaining our current pricing is also fair practice.

Please do feel free to contact us with any questions, comments or concerns you may have on this matter… and thank you so much for your time today.

December Scheduling 2012

So every year we like to send out a message pertaining to booking appointments going into the holiday season, and this year is no exception.  This has been a very busy year for us and the last few week of 2012 look as though they are going to be the same! Christmas is right around the corner, and we know you will be busy entertaining, shopping, decorating, wrapping presents, baking…. all those other wonderful, non-stressful (ha-ha) things associated with the holiday season!  Why not take cleaning off a “To-Do” list which is probably already too long?

Just a reminder to all those clients who wish to book extra or specific dates for the Christmas Season:

Our policy is that regular client appointments will be scheduled with first priority and other appointments will be on a first requested- first scheduled basis.  So if you would like to book your Christmas house cleaning in Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Coquitlam, Mission, or Langley, contact us soon and let us know when you would like us to come and clean your home!!  We already have had a few requests come in and are expecting more daily… so don’t wait!

Another thing we wanted to mention:  As Christmas is on a Tuesday this year we will be CLOSED from December 23rd to December 26th, and open for business again on December 27th and 28th.  This will allow our staff some much deserved relaxation time to spend with their family and friends.

Finally, for our regular clients who may be going away for the holidays and will not need their regularly scheduled cleaning in December…. please let us know as soon as possible so we can keep other clients happy and our schedule full over the Holidays!!

Also, a You’ve Got Maid Gift Certificate is a great idea for someone on your shopping list.  Avoid the malls!  You can purchase and print or email your gifts right from the comfort of your own home directly from our website! Packages available for as little as $70 for a two hour cleaning service and also larger packages that can either be split into more than one cleaning appointment or used all at once.  Once you purchase the gift certificate we will take care of the rest and work with your “Giftee” to ensure that they get the most out of their cleaning time!

House cleaning in Langley

Hello customers,

We just thought that this would be a great and timely (with our Groupon going live this morning) opportunity to define our Langley service boundaries.  With Maple Ridge being our home base, we are somewhat limited as to how far we can venture out of that area.  So, with the Golden Ears Bridge as a starting point we will travel EAST to 216th, SOUTH to 64th, and WEST to 184th.  If you live within this area we will be happy to add you to our service rotation for house cleaning in whatever capacity you need us!  If you have any questions about this or any of our other services please don’t hesitate to contact us today!  Thank you!
