Home Cleaning

Maid in Katy strives to not only meet your cleaning expectations but to exceed them! Rest assured, we will treat your home or apartment as if it were our own, taking care with each and every thing we touch. We pride ourselves in making your home feel cozy and comfortable.

Call Michelle to set up your first time cleaning. She’ll make sure you look forward to coming home to a sparkly clean house.

We get the job done naturally. We do our best to use as little harsh chemicals as possible. We use steam cleaners on hard floors and handheld steamers for countertops and oven grime. We use Amazing Whip It as our all purpose cleaner and NOW essential oils for sanitizing and deodorizing. Occasionally, more aggressive cleaners are needed but we use them sparingly and only when needed. We believe in promoting health for you, our client, and for the planet.

At your first time cleaning, we do a very deep clean. We get into the nooks and crannies and get your home in the best possible shape. This includes hand wiping baseboards, washing all cabinet faces in the home, thoroughly cleaning ceiling fans, scrubbing light switch/electrical plates clean, Wiping down all interior doors, deep cleaning blinds throughout the home and much more. We’ll even clean inside your oven if you wish. If you choose to start with recurring cleaning, it is our mission to keep your home in the “deep clean” status for as long as we are cleaning for you.

Below you will find our standard home cleaning checklist. Prior to your first cleaning, Michelle will work with you to customize the cleaning of your home to suit your schedule, budget and preferences.
