Do I have to give my house key to my maid service?
While it is not required to give a maid company your key, it is highly recommended.
If you have a regular maid service coming to your home, it may save you time and money if you give them either a copy of your key, a garage door access code, or leave a key for them under a mat. Nearly all maid services will charge a fee if they are locked out of your home. This is because they take the time to travel to your home, and have scheduled a time just for it, so if they are locked out it is costly for them.
This is yet another reason why it is so important to hire a maid service company that is licensed, bonded and insured; it allows you to feel confident giving them your key, and saves you from having to worry about remembering to leave a key out, or having to be home each time they show up.
