We’ve all had clients we wished had never found us. But how do you fire someone you no longer want to serve?

How to Fire a Cleaning Client

Here were two responses from the ZenMaid team – it really helps having a team filled with current and former maid service owners

Makes our software better too ๐Ÿ˜‰

Courtney Wisely (owner at Magic Maids)

โ€œI absolutely love making homes sparkle and that is why I went into this business. I never want any of my clients to feel unsatisfied and I just donโ€™t think we are a good fit for you. I would hate to disappoint anyone and would much rather you be 100% satisfied, so I am going to give you the name of someone that has a bit of a different approach that might work better for you and I truly wish you the absolute best.โ€

“^^ My wording is super similar for written.

If you are firing verbally, I’d say something similar but be honest “be human”. If you are struggling for words, tell them that. “This conversation is really difficult for me, and I apologize in advance if I don’t deliver what I’m about to say perfectly. I am no longer going to be able to clean for you. (then insert Courtney’s content).”
