Recent Review: It's important to understand that Molly Maid and all other housecleaning companies are just that: house CLEANING companies. They aren't your personal maids...they don't empty dishwashers or fold your clothes...and there's only so much time they can spend scraping your teenage son's week old welded-on mess out of the microwave. So you do have to pick up and put away before they arrive if you want a clean house when they leave, and you do still have to do a certain amount of tidying up behind yourselves and wiping up your own messes every day, same as you'd have to do if you were still the one CLEANING the house every week or so. I tried another service (whom I see has a well deserved grade of D here)....dropped them after only a few months because their service was awful and I never saw the same people twice. If that's been your only experience with a house cleaning service, give Molly Maid a try. They wouldn't have lasted 6 years with me if I weren't very happy with them, and I'm PICKY! So unless your expectations are unrealistic, I think you'll be as happy with them too!
