A comparison of two of the leading companies you should be considering for your Maid Service

So you’re a Maid Service owner who is deciding between ZenMaid and HouseCall Pro. We’ve written an article on why you should use ZenMaid.

Before anyone gets the idea this is some sort of “hate” article, please know HouseCall Pro is a great software that helped pioneer our industry, and for that we are grateful. It simply isn’t the best option for residential cleaning companies in the 21st century.

Fortunately for Maid Service owners, where HouseCall Pro falls short and isn’t specialized, ZenMaid is.

Dec 2019 update: HouseCall Pro sued $2.2 million settlement with the FTC for spamming people like you.

Built by Maid Service owners for Maid Service owners

ZenMaid was created by Amar Ghose, who previously ran Fast Friendly Spotless in Orange County, CA. Since starting ZenMaid, Amar has personally spoken with over 2000 maid service owners like you, and does so daily on the ZenMaid Mastermind (a free community for maid service owners like you).

HouseCall Pro was not created FOR Maid Service owners specifically, and just as importantly, it was not built BY Maid Service owners.

We’re the first to point out their tool is legitimately good but ZenMaid’s specialized software is more tailored specifically for maid service owners like you.

HouseCall Pro used to be one of the best Maid Service softwares available and we appreciate them greatly for leading the way in this industry. There’s a reason, though, that ZenMaid has been endorsed by virtually every well known cleaning consultant.

You may have heard about ZenMaid from Debbie Sardone, Sharon Tinberg, Steve & Jean Hanson, Pam Washington, Mike Campion, Katie Pearse, or Martha Woodward.

There are several very good reasons we’re regularly mentioned by these top cleaning minds.

Free Concierge Onboarding

ZenMaid is the only software for Maid Services that offers true concierge onboarding. If you’re using HouseCall Pro or another online system, you can send us your login information and we’ll move as much information over as we can.

We understand that getting setup on HouseCall Pro was probably a nightmare but it’s no problem with ZenMaid. Make your move today and we’ll have you up and running very, very quickly.

No Outside Investors, Meaning 100% Focus on YOU

ZenMaid has taken on zero outside investment since starting in 2013. The only people we answer to is you: our customers.

HouseCall Pro has been taken over and no longer is accountable to only their customers. They have to answer to investors, analysts, and consultants, whereas ZenMaid makes decisions based solely on what’s best for our clients: the 900+ cleaning companies that use us across the globe.

Your Employees Will Love the New Communication Clarity

At ZenMaid we consistently hear that both cleaners and customers love when a maid service switches from HouseCall Pro. The convenience the system adds for ALL parties involved is second to none.

Your employees can choose to receive text updates, detailed email work orders, or can login to see their schedules. It’s fully customizable so they only see what you want!

Instant Booking

HouseCall Pro can be helpful when it comes to managing your cleaning business, but ZenMaid is designed to do even more – including to help you market and grow.

The ZenMaid Instant Booking form is designed beautifully for your business so you can turn your website visitors into paying, recurring customers.

Work with Experts

ZenMaid is run by cleaning industry experts. You know Amar, our CEO, who has both run a cleaning business and consulted with thousands of maid services. Additionally, each of our employees goes through maid service owner trainings from the industry consultants mentioned above.

In fact Courtney – our Chief Strategy Officer – is also the owner of Magic Maids in St. Louis! Alongside her we have a team of other current and previous maid service owners on the team.

When you need help with ZenMaid or your business, our team knows your details in and out so you get truly personalized advice and support that designed to maximize your success.

HouseCall Pro can’t say the same.

You and your Maid Service deserve a little peace and quiet.
