Frequently Asked Questions about Mummy's Maid Services
What qualifications/experience do your Maids have?
We realise that trust is important to all of our clients. That’s why all of our Mummy’s Maids are experienced and capable individuals. Each maid undergoes an intensive recruitment process including a face to face interview, enhanced CRB check and reference check.
Mummy’s Maid ensures that all the CRB’s are up to date and these are valid for three years. This entire process allows us to gain a greater understanding of the maid’s character and past experiences as well as giving our clients the reassurance they need. Qualifications vary from maid to maid.
What is the minimum amount of time I can purchase?
When you have decided to use our service you will need to purchase a minimum of 2 hours.
