What You'll Get
Like a dress shirt soaked in giant octopus ink or the centuries-old pizza-box forts that secure the road to Rome, some messes will never be clean. Today’s Groupon goes gladiator on the disorders you can conquer but would rather not. For $55, your Groupon covers the initial cleaning charge of $35, and a three-hour home cleaning that includes dusting, vacuuming, sweeping, mopping, and indoor brush-clearing for up to 2,500 square feet (a $75 value) from Maid for You. As a Groupon customer, you can also order a SquidMop through Maid for You for $25 (normally $34)—just place your order when you call to redeem your Groupon. Cleaning is available weekdays between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. and weekends by appointment. Maid for You will use the cleaning products you already have to keep your home sanitary and make it smell the way you choose, so be sure to leave out your brisket-scented bottle of Febreze.
Maid for You’s lustrous legion will swoop down on the most seemingly intractable quagmire, shoot spray cleaners first, and ask questions later, if ever. Mercy on muck is not among their virtues, though attentiveness, amiability, and thoroughness are. Maid for You’s meticulous cleaning gurus deploy their services to take on sink slicks, desk disasters, and carpet catastrophes in the bathroom, and bedroom, and kitchen. They’ll also take out the trash, de-streak your windows, and change the linens if clean replacements are readily at hand.
Having a clean house is like having a clean plate; there’s room for more dinner rolls and your grandpa is proud of you. Family owned and operated for the past 26 years, Maid for You is here to transform your ordinary, lived-in home into a spotless abode off of which you can finally eat. A clean home can enhance your overall mood and increase your productivity, affording you a tidy workspace for writing genre fiction and knitting toaster pastry cozies.
Bigger homes take more time to clean, so if you abide in an abode larger than 2,500 square feet, Maid for You suggests the following:
- 2,500–3,000 sq. ft. is an additional $16 (takes 4 hours)
- 3,000–4,000 sq. ft. is an additional $40 (takes 5 hours)
- 4,000–5,000 sq. ft. is an additional $62 (takes 6 hours)
This deal is not valid for moving or make-ready-related cleaning, and there’s an additional $5 charge for houses outside the Austin area.
