Other cleaning companies perform a walkthrough before giving you an estimate, simply to mark up the cost if your home is nice or if it’s messy. We believe in treating all of our customers equally. We provide estimates solely based on the size of your home and the frequency of your cleanings.

We prove our confidence & value of each and every cleaning, by letting our customers choose when to start and stop service. We’re proud to say we work with our customers, on average, for over 5 years.

Maid Services? No Way!

It is believed that the word “maid” came into use as a shorthand for “maiden” in Middle English around the 12th century, a term commonly used to describe young, unmarried women as well as virgins. Until the 1300s, it was used to describe domestic help in its more modern form.

It is our policy to hire only professional house cleaners, including men! In order to clean homes efficiently and effectively, CottageCare uses sophisticated systems, and our crews deserve titles based on their skills. Since maids have been often used in demeaning contexts, the word still carries those negative associations. Due to those reasons, we believe it’s best not to identify with the word.

We LOVE Cottage Care!! They do a wonderful job on our house every time and we never have to worry about anything. They are great to work with and very flexible. The prices are great too! I would recommend them to anyone, anytime!

Heather James-Nelson

I’ve used Cottage Care for my home cleaning for the last 2 years and I think they do a great job!! They’re very attentive to my “special considerations” while cleaning and I’ve also found them to be very flexible when I’ve requested a change from my normal cleaning date.

CottageCare Des Moines Customer, from Google

I was so impressed with CottageCare Des Moines. This was a gift for me and it was my first time using their service. They were right on the minute and I was so impressed with their service. The young woman came in ready to work and hopped right to it when I told her what I wanted done. I came in to see if she was comfortable, and she was most pleasant. Everything she did was done well. She even did the door tops. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I had never had anyone come to clean for me before and I was very nervous before, but she set me at ease and did everything I asked her to do. She was professional and diligent.

Barbara S.

We have used the services of Cottage Care in Des Moines, IA, for several years and have found the staff to be not only hard working, thorough, and prompt, but also pleasant and flexible. The cost is fair and reasonable. We have had to call ahead and cancel or postpone appointments on occasion, and have been treated respectfully. I appreciate the reminder calls.

Joan J.

I searched online and found CottageCare Des Moines, they offer good prices for their service. I initially contacted them because as seniors the responsibilities around the house were starting to become challenging for my husband and I. CottageCare Des Moines comes out on a monthly basis to clean my home thoroughly with cleaning off counter tops, sweeping, mopping and dusting in all the rooms including bathroom and kitchen. I really like the young cleaning lady that’s been coming out and so CottageCare Des Moines honored my request. I am very satisfied with this company.

Connie A.

CottageCare Des Moines cleans my entire home. They sanitize the bathroom and kitchen, sweep, vacuum and mop. Anytime, I want something extra that’s not in their plans they’ll do it anyways. The last 2 times the cleaner I had was amazing! She does a thorough clean and if an area is clutter she’ll put it all in one corner so I can manage it and I really appreciate it.

Heather B.

My experience with CottageCare Des Moines was great. We schedule a time for them to come out and they were right on time. Their prices are very reasonable for the service they provide. I would use them again. Also, I will recommend them to others.

Theresa D.

When the young women from CottageCare show up, they are very understanding, very polite, and conduct themselves in a professional manner. They clean the main level and bathroom on the lower level every three weeks. Most of the young women have been very acceptable, very polite and very positive; they seem to be honest and reliable young women. I would recommend them to my friend.

Janet D.

Of all the CottageCare customers in Des Moines, I am the one who has been with them the longest. I have stayed with this company because I like the consistency of the cleaners and the thorough job they do. Everyone is efficient and timely, and their service makes my life easier at a very reasonable price. Give CottageCare Des Moines a try!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does house cleaning cost in Iowa?

The cost can considerably vary depending on your home’s size and your specific service requirements. Currently, the average cost is between approximately $150 – $250 for a flat rate. These prices may fluctuate, so it’s advisable to check the latest local rates.

What is the difference between a cleaner and a housekeeper?

Both cleaners and housekeepers play vital roles in maintaining cleanliness and order, but their responsibilities often differ. A cleaner primarily focuses on cleaning tasks such as dusting, vacuuming, mopping, and sanitizing bathrooms and kitchens. Their role is usually more task-oriented and less personal.

A housekeeper, on the other hand, often has a broader set of responsibilities that extend beyond just cleaning. This could include cooking, laundry, shopping, and even looking after children or elderly residents. Their role is more continuous, often involves greater interaction with the household, and can encompass a wider range of duties.

What do most cleaning companies offer?

The majority of cleaning companies offer a variety of services, including standard cleaning, deep cleaning, move-in/move-out cleaning, and commercial cleaning. These services typically comprise dusting, vacuuming, flat mopping, kitchen and bathroom cleaning, and occasionally, laundry and window cleaning services. Some companies also extend specialized services such as carpet cleaning or power washing.
