Homejoy.com Overcharged for a Simple Cleaning and Refused to Refund San Francisco but doing business Nationwide
Warning! Do not use Homejoy.com to clean your home. It is a scam! It is billed as an easy way to book over the Internet and have your place cleaned at a low price. However, they charge by the hour and milk the cleaning to get more money out of you. I bought a voucher for a free cleaning. The cleaner arrived (without her own vacuum cleaner, by the way) for what should have been a 2 hour job maximum. I have a 1,000 sq ft apartment that does not get very dirty. (My previous cleaner, who quit after having a baby, did a fine job in an hour or less.) The Homejoy cleaner stayed and "cleaned" for 5 hours! I did not realize that my voucher was only for 2 1/2 hours (my bad- lesson learned) and that I would have to pay for the hours in excess of 2 1/2. My place wasn't even as clean as when my old cleaner did it in an hour. When I called to complain, I was told: "I'm not sure what you want us to do. The time was provided to you." So yes, the hourly rate is cheap, but you pay for it in the end.
