All You Should Know About Hiring a Maid in Dubai

Even if you live solo, keeping the house uncluttered and clean can be tedious. With a spouse, children or pet; it becomes a real tough job with a feeling of endlessness. This is perhaps the only reason why people throw a dirty dish towel in the dustbin and prefer hiring a maid in Dubai or any other region. It’s indeed bit of a luxury and doesn’t happen for free however the end results are worth the price.

Just like any other service, you need to know more about the individual or maid agency before they pour in your home with a mop and broom. We can classify a maid in Dubai in two types: independent cleaner who work on their own to earn a living and trained professionals employed at an agency. The independent service may turn foreboding lately as you’re responsible to look after various issues such as quality of cleaning, reliability, cost and insurance if they break something in your home.

On the contrary, such issues are dealt by the management if you hook up with a professional housekeeping service. Either way, make sure they’re certified and insured for your as well as their own safety. Insurance bond is important lest the cleaner broke something in your home or somehow injure himself as you won’t be held accountable.

The countless benefits

A typical maid in Dubai provide services that you mightn’t even though in the first place such as organising the wardrobe; something teenagers would definitely fall for, do the dishes and laundry as well.

  • Beyond the typical brooms & mops

Prices vary exorbitantly to the service as some cleaners would charge per hour while others do it per the number of tasks. Basic cleaning chores include the usual sweeping, mopping, dusting, wash interior windows and doors, laundry, cooking and much more.

  • Run a background check

This is important as you’re literally allowing stranger(s) in your home so always ask for references from the neighbors, friends and work colleagues who previously exploited the service. Conduct personal background check for reliability and perfection in work that’ll actually show up.

  • The walk through

This is where you relay demands to the cleaning agency, sort out the type and number of service(s) required. An agreement would be devised accordingly which you’ll sign but only after reading it thoroughly! Professional housekeepers always have a checklist prepared for each client thus saving time, cost and effort.

  • Children & pets

If you’ve children or pets in the house, it requires daily cleaning and maintenance. Do communicate with the service agency prior agreeing to the terms and conditions as cost may vary per the tasks. You don’t want to face any inconvenience or last-minute hassle when payment is due!

  • Employee relations

You should note that maids are hard-working individuals who clean up the mess we create. So they deserve respect and well treatment. Lest they aren’t carrying the job well, talk to them first rather than complaining straight to the higher management; this will strengthen the trust and communication gap.


Whether hiring a maid in Dubai or elsewhere, let the above information guide you all through!

The Partition Museum may have opened its doors only in 2016 but it has a wealth of records about events dating back to India’s Independence. This one-of-kind museum preserves the experiences of those displaced by the Partition of India in 1947. The final plan for the museum is to have seven galleries spread across 16000 sq.ft., with sections devoted to Independence and partition, migration, research, rehabilitation and resettlement and the gallery of hope.

While in Amritsar, also visit Jallianwala Bagh where a crowd of non-violent protestors were fired upon by the British troops on April 13, 1919.

Jai Vilas Palace

The Jai Vilas Palace in Gwalior is a grand example of the opulence and elegance that were the hallmarks of the erstwhile princely abodes. It was built in 1875 by Jayajirao Scindia, the Maharaja of Gwalior. A part of the palace (35 rooms) has now converted into a museum while the remaining area continues to be occupied by the Scindia family.

Gwalior Palace

The palace is a unique blend of various European architectural styles, drawing inspiration from Buckingham Palace, Palace of Versailles and the Greek ruins. Even the interiors reflect a distinct European influence as most of the furniture, tapestries and artifacts are from France and Italy.

The Durbar Hall is undoubtedly the most impressive with walls adorned with gold leaves and an ornate gilded ceiling. A pair of Belgian’ style chandeliers weighing several tonnes is said to be among the largest in the world. The story goes that ten elephants were taken on to the roof to test the strength of the building before the chandeliers were hung! Fine Persian carpets, ornate mirrors, heavy draperies and antique French furniture- all make for a true royal experience.

But the crowing glory is certainly the electric silver train with cut-glass wagons. The elegant train would chug around on miniature silver rails serving guests seated around a massive dining table.

The queen Chinoo Rani’s chambers are unique. Chinoo Rani was particularly short and the king had everything customized to her height! Among her personal memorabilia, her bejewelled mini slippers are indeed fascinating!

A beautifully crafted Venetian cut-glass cradle is used for Lord Krishna on the occasion of Janmashtami.
