Common Questions

All your home cleaning questions answered!

Absolutely not. There are no lock in contracts.

The size and condition of your home will determine how many hours are required. Each home will require a different amount of hours to achieve desired results. The service is charged hourly and you have the freedom to choose the level of cleaning by determining the hours. Hourly cleaning will ensure you are only paying for what you need as opposed to a fixed price. By increasing the hours you book, you are able to receive more cleaning. You can read more about how many hours are required by Clicking Here.

We don’t provide home visit quotes. All of our maid services are charged hourly. Our home cleaning prices are available on our website. There are no hidden fees and you will know the total cost of the appointment at the time of your booking. The appointment cost is determined purely based on the hours booked. If you would like to read more about the benefits of hourly rates as opposed to a set price please Click Here.

A Once Off Clean and a Regular Clean is generally performed by one person. In some cases depending on the size, condition of the home and whether the service is a Deep Clean, a team of maids may be assigned to your appointment.

Absolutely. If you book a Regular Clean with us we will assign you the same maid. In the event your maid is sick we will endeavour to arrange a replacement maid for you.

It’s not necessary to be home when the maid arrives. You can leave your maid a key in a safe pre-determined place that was communicated prior. Your maid will then return the key to the same location. You are more than welcome to meet your maid on your initial appointment and give them a walk through of your home. If you would like to read more about when the maid will arrive & how to provide access please Click Here.

We will greatly appreciate if you could let us know in advance if you require changes in the cleaning schedule. We will endeavour to find you a new spot with your maid that will suit your requirements.

Our maids will not hold onto client keys for security purposes. If you are not home you are welcome to leave your maid a key in a safe pre-determined place that was communicated prior. Once the maid has finished cleaning by default the maid will put the key back in the same pre-determined location. Upon request your maid can also leave the key inside your home and lock the front door upon exiting. Most clients will leave their key in a key combination safe for their maid. We also recommend this as it is safe method. If you would like to read more about when the maid will arrive & how to provide access please Click Here.

Your maid will bring all the required cleaning products for your appointment. Your maid will use your equipment (vacuum & mop) for hygiene purposes. Using your equipment is essential to prevent cross contamination. If you would like to read more about products and equipment please Click Here.

Payment is due on your appointment day upon completion of the cleaning. Payment is payable via cash or electronic funds transfer (EFT).

What Clients Say


I work 7 days a week in the printing press industry. I hardly have any time to do household chores. My cleaner comes once a fortnight and takes care of everything. I never have to think about cleaning.

Mark – Richmond

I’m very satisfied with the cleaning service. I would recommend Inner Melbourne Maids to others in a heartbeat.

John – Brighton

After having a bad experience with my previous cleaner a local mum recommended Inner Melbourne Maids. I am also a mum with a 1 year and 3 year old and always have my hands full. My cleaner Ana is my saviour who comes to clean once a week leaving my place shining.

Michelle – Newport

A cleaning company with a professional approach to cleaning with high standards. After having many less than desirable experiences with other cleaners I am finally relieved to have found a cleaning company that I am truly happy with.

Kelly – Williamstown

This company delivers on their quality promise. They are what they say they are and have never disappointed me with their home cleaners.

Alison – Toorak

We have a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom townhouse in Footscray. Our cleaner comes once a week for 2 hours and cleans our whole home. We are pleased with the service and always happy to see our cleaner who arrives with a big smile.

Louise – Footscray

I was very impressed with Adriana’s cleaning. She was friendly and did a fantastic job cleaning our house in Kingsville. I know how hard it is to find a good cleaner in the inner west of Melbourne as I had used many different cleaners in the past and was never completely happy. Either I had a trust concern, I found them to be unreliable or the cleaning was just not up to standard. I was recommended this agency in a mums group on social media and I have also passed on the recommendations to other mums in the group.

Alycia – Kingsville

We have an apartment in Port Melbourne. My husband and I work full time and run busy schedules leaving us little time do cleaning. The regular cleaning service offered by Inner Melbourne Maids has made our lives a ton easier.

Liz – Port Melbourne

I found the cleaning booking process to be quick and intuitive. The customer service person I spoke to was very polite and helpful. The cleaner who came out to clean my home in Ascot Vale did a terrific job. From start to finish I was very impressed with the customer service, communication and the cleaning service. I can confidently say this company is unlike other cleaning companies or private cleaners I have used in the past. It is comforting to deal with a large company that is trustworthy and consistent.

Melissa – Ascot Vale

We have a large 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house in Essendon which is very time consuming to clean. I am a mum with 3 little children and the thought of adding cleaning to my already hectic schedule is daunting. Our cleaner is Jordana and she is truly incredible. She does a fantastic job on the bathrooms and floors which are my priority areas that I would like cleaned. I have used many cleaners in the past however this company is by far the best and I am glad to have found them through recommendations.

Karen – Essendon

I have been very happy with our cleaner, the support and communication provided by the company. It is hard to find a good cleaning company that you can trust to do a consistently perfect job. I become aware of Inner Melbourne Maids through a colleague after I was having a chat about the issues I had with my previous cleaner. This company is a cut above other cleaning companies out there.

Tanya – St Kilda

I met my cleaner Kimberly for the initial appointment of an arranged fortnightly service. She was presentable and friendly. I now just leave her a key and always come back to a sparkling home. I have used other cleaning companies before and have found them to be average. My experience with Inner Melbourne Maids however has been consistently nothing but great.

Jenny – Maribyrnong

Quality cleaning company with reliable cleaners. Our house is in South Yarra and our cleaner has always come on time, delivered a consistent clean. I can recommend this company to others without any hesitation.

Melanie – South Yarra

We live in Altona North and now have our second cleaner from the agency to service our home. We were very happy with the first one however she went overseas. Our current cleaner Carol is also excellent and delivers the same quality of cleaning. I like the consistency of the quality of cleaners this company has. When I used other companies in the past they had lacked consistency and the cleaning I received was different all the time. I plan to use Inner Melbourne Maids for the foreseeable future and will recommend them to friends and family without any hesitation.

Julie – Altona North

I use Inner Melbourne Maids to clean my apartment in Prahan. My cleaner Marisa is lovely and does a fantastic job. I’m very pleased with the service.

Sarah – Prahran

I don’t know what I would do without my cleaner Carol. She is the sweetest person and does a brilliant job cleaning my home in Fitzroy. I am very satisfied with the cleaning service and professionalism of the agency.

Suzy – Fitzroy

A professional company with trustworthy home cleaners. At no time did I ever feel uncomfortable with the cleaner in my home. I have had two cleaners from this agency and both have always made me feel very comfortable.

Kylie – West Melbourne

I am a mum with two little children that are constantly keeping me busy. Having our cleaner come once a week to clean our place in Yarraville has been a life changer. I could never go back to not having a cleaner. I can comfortably recommend this agency to other mums with children in the inner west of Melbourne.

Kate – Yarraville

Cleaning Company
Our Story

Who is Inner Melbourne Maids?

Inner Melbourne Maids initially started with one person, our founder Paula Rod who began cleaning homes for her clients based in Footscray. Paula's unparalleled attention to quality and detail, and her unique systematic approach to cleaning resulted in the creation of a formula which delivered a consistent high standard cleaning to each home. Her remarkable style of cleaning was noticed shortly by her clients. She became popular and highly recommended amongst her client base for her skills, cleaning system and character.

She eventually started cleaning together with a team of ladies as her client base grew larger. All through word of mouth business Paula and her team had become the preferred choice of cleaners for a large group of mothers in the inner west mums community of Melbourne.

Later on, through further recommendations new clients started pouring in from Melbourne's inner city and inner south east suburbs. Inundated with all the new requests for home cleaning she was faced with two options; to either decline the extra work as her and the team were fully booked out or find a way to be able service new clients without compromising on the quality of service that she has been providing to existing clients. She decided on the latter and as a result founded Inner Melbourne Maids, a cleaning agency for Melbourne's inner south east and inner city suburbs.

She formed the agency and its operations based around her experience, know how, proven cleaning system and processes with the goal to ensure that each client will consistently receive a high standard clean, the same she had always been providing her clients herself. She succeeded and as a result of her and the teams efforts Inner Melbourne Maids has become Melbourne's Premier Cleaning Agency™.
