Say Goodbye to Grime with Auckland’s 5 Top Tier Maid Cleaning Services

Say Goodbye to Grime with Auckland's 5 Top Tier Maid Cleaning Services
We extensively test and research all services we review. Here's why you can trust us.

Chores are the bane of existence for anyone who’d rather be binge-watching their favorite series than battling dust bunnies. Take it from me—I once tried to take on the task of deep cleaning my place armed with a DIY vinegar mix and a hefty dose of overconfidence. What ensued was an epic cleaning fail. 

My living room looked like a bubble bath gone rogue—you’ve pretty much got the picture. I was about ready to wave the white flag (or throw in the towel, literally).

Since then, I’ve left my deep home cleanings to professionals. After doing research around town and some help from the Auckland Magazine team, I’ve put together a list of the best cleaning maid agencies in town.

If the thought of cleaning your home is as exhausting to you as it is to me, here’s all the best maid agencies Auckland has to offer.

How much does it cost to hire a cleaning maid in Auckland? 

If hiring a maid to clean your home or office in Auckland, expect to spend at least 30 NZD an hour for basic cleaning services. This price is just an estimate. The price may increase depending on the maid agency you choose, whether you get a deep clean and any additional services.

How We Chose

Shiny Reviews and Recommendations: We started by asking around. Friends, family, even that friendly neighbour with the perpetually spotless windows – anyone who raved about their cleaning service. Then we went online and used reviews of happy customers to find even more user-recommended options.
Squeaky Clean Services: Not all maid services are created equal. Some do basic tidy-ups, while others offer deep cleaning magic. We looked for companies that had a variety of services.
Trustworthy: We wanted maid agencies that were insured and bonded, so we knew we were covered in case of any accidents. Plus, we felt more comfortable if the cleaners were background checked.
Communication: We chatted with various maids from the agencies we selected beforehand. We wanted to make sure they were easy to talk to and understood what we were looking for. After all, clear communication is key to a clean home.

1. Hire a Maid Franchise Group Limited

Address: Unit 8/31 Princes Street, Onehunga, Auckland 1061, New Zealand

Contact Details: +64 800 110 095

Operating Hours: 

  • Monday to Friday – 8 AM to 5 PM 
  • Saturday – 8 AM to 2:30 PM 

Website: Hire a Maid Franchise Group Limited

The Hire a Maid website is super navigable, making us feel like tech wizards for a hot second, and their instant quote feature had us knowing what’s what without having to play guessing games.

They offer both residential and commercial cleaning. We at Auckland Magazine used them to do some tidying up around our office space.

When we initially met with their cleaning crew, we were met with smiles and a run-down of their game plan. And boy, did some parts of our office get the royal treatment? The bathrooms were sparkling, and the office desks were so clean, we could’ve had dinner off them.

But a few sneaky cobwebs managed to dodge their sweep, and the flooring could have used a bit more elbow grease.

When we reached out to Hire a Maid to give them the lowdown, they didn’t just listen—they sprang into action. Apologies were immediate, and their offer to make things right—at no extra charge—was faster than you can say “spotless.”


  • Instant online quotes
  • Commercial cleaning available
  • Free cleaning fixes 


  • Cobwebs not cleaned
  • Flooring still dirty

Customer Reviews

Did an amazing job of the place

“When another company cancelled my end of tenancy clean the day before it was scheduled, Hire a Maid came through last minute. The woman on the phone was so friendly and understanding of my situation, made sure everything was explained and understood before we booked. They did an amazing job of the place. Would recommend to anyone!”

After each clean I come home to the best fresh smelling cleaned home

“I highly recommend Hire a Maid. In the year we have been using this company I have had the same young lady each fortnight. She is punctual, thorough, and trustworthy. After each clean I come home to the best fresh smelling cleaned home. Twice a year we have our ovens cleaned. Spring cleans are on offer. After Covid they gave us the option to have all our touch points cleaned with a germ shield surface sanitiser.They take their job seriously and this is why I have been happy to stay with them.”

2. Life Maid Easy Cleaning Service

Address: 433 Lake Road, Takapuna, Auckland 0622, New Zealand

Contact Details: +64 9 909 6560

Operating Hours: Monday to Friday – 9 Am to 5 PM 

Website: Life Maid Easy Cleaning Service

Life Maid Easy swoops in with free estimates that won’t make you commit on the spot. Many clients we spoke to totally dug that they didn’t pressure them to book a cleaning instantly. 

But Life Maid Easy is all about sprucing up your living room. They also do offices and even construction site cleanups. 

Furthermore, when we spoke with Life Maid Easy over the phone about their health-minded approach, we had to see it for ourselves. They even sent us a free, healthy home action plan. 

One of the things we liked about their cleaning process was that they whip out HEPA filtration vacuums—great for catching those sneaky allergens and dust mites. And their eco-friendly cleaning products are perfect if you’ve got pets roaming around the house like we do.

While some we spoke with mentioned the occasional late start from maids not arriving on time and some pricing that made their wallet weep just a bit, these are minor hiccups.


  • Free estimates
  • Free healthy home action plan
  • HEPA filteration vaccums
  • Eco-friendly cleaning products
  • Construction site cleanups


  • Maids can be late
  • Pricing can be expensive

Customer Reviews

3. RSD Cleaning Services

Contact Details:+64 210 791 654

Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday – 8 AM to 5 PM 

Website: RSD Cleaning Services

RSD talks a big game about bending over backward to fit your needs, but pinning down exactly what I was getting when hiring them felt like decoding a mystery at times. 

It took a bit of phone tag to clarify things, more “can you do this?” and “Is that included?” than I’d have liked. At least the cleaning rates were reasonable.

But when the cleaning squad showed up, they popped in with the friendliest “hello’s”, made sure I was all cozy and up to speed before diving into the dirt battle. And no awkward vibes as they cleaned around my apartment.

As for their cleaning performance, the bathrooms gave off those sparkly vibes, the kitchen counters looked like they had never encountered a single germ, and the floors? So clean you could probably eat off them (but, you know, let’s not).


  • Friendly cleaners
  • Reasonable prices
  • Efficient cleaning


  • Communication could be better

Customer Reviews

“Efficiency is where RSD Cleaning truly shines. The cleaning crew wastes no time and gets straight to work, ensuring every nook and cranny is spotless in record time. Their attention to detail is impeccable, and they consistently leave our office space looking pristine. It’s clear that they take pride in their work.

What’s equally impressive is their competitive pricing. In today’s market, finding a cleaning company that offers top-notch service without breaking the bank is a rarity. RSD Cleaning delivers on both fronts. Their rates are not only affordable but also provide incredible value for the level of service you receive. If you’re searching for a corporate cleaning company that combines efficiency, quality, and affordability, look no further. I’ll definitely continue to rely on their outstanding services!

4. Cleaning Mates

Contact Details: +64 210 291 7882

Operating Hours: Monday to Saturday – 9 AM to 5 PM 

Website: Cleaning Mates

From the get-go, when we asked for a quote, to that “all done” email, Cleaning Mates kept us in the loop. Got a question? Answered. Need to shuffle around the schedule? No problemo. 

We did just a standard cleaning for my friend’s Airbnb, but if you’ve got a filthy oven or carpets, just know that those aren’t on the menu for the basic clean-up.

You’ll have to shell out extra cash for a deep cleaning. For those counting pennies, it might make you clutch your wallet a little tighter. 

At the end of it all, my friend’s Airbnb was glowing, thanks to Cleaning Mates! And I’m not talking about a quick zip-through with a duster. 

Oh no, they went full detective mode, hunting down every single dust bunny and giving them the boot. The kitchen and bathroom? Spotless. It’s like those greasy smears and stubborn soap scum never existed. 


  • Airbnb cleaning services
  • Excellent communication
  • Spotless cleaning


  • Costs extra for deep cleaning services

Customer Reviews

Top notch cleaning everytime and excellent communication

“Highly recommend Cleaning Mates. Milan and his team are so professional and so easy to deal with. We are airbnb owners and have had several companies clean for us prior (none completely met the grade). We were amazed at how quickly Clean Mates adapted to our particular requirements and from day one, we have had a superb service. Top notch cleaning everytime and excellent communication. Milan and his team are super responsive – if we have a new request it is done immediately. To top it all off, he’s a lovely guy. We have about 10 – 15 cleans every week, with full service (linen, beds, cleaning). We had had excellent customer reviews which is super important for our business.” 

Anna Birkenhead Google Reviews

Communication is swift and fast

“I highly recommend Cleaning Mates. I’ve been using them as my AirBnB cleaning service and they’ve been fantastic. They’re easy to deal with – their communication is swift and fast and nothing seems to be of any trouble to them. They even share pictures after cleaning meaning I don’t have to go and check! They’re very reliable, can always find a cleaner that fits within my schedule, and go out of their way to make sure everything is “just so”. I’m so pleased I’ve chosen Cleaning Mates as my cleaning service.”

5. Kiwi Clean Home

Contact Details: +64 21 167 6513

Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday – 8 AM to 6 PM 

Website:  Kiwi Clean Home

We gave Kiwi Clean Home the mission of sprucing up a friend’s three-bedroom house. And chatting it up and booking with Kiwi Clean Home was as easy as pie. 

A smooth online booking system, check. Professionalism from start to finish; double-check. They even gave us a ring a day before our appointment.

And they’re all about those green, eco-friendly products, which you know is a big thumbs up from us. 

We’ve got our quirks, like our small obsession with our kitchen and bathrooms being clean enough to eat off (not that we would, but you get the idea). Kiwi Clean Home was all ears and tailored their cleaning dance to focus on our prized areas.

Now, while they were on point with their pre-clean banter, we kind of missed that during the actual cleaning. A little “heads up, found your lost earring” or “how do you want this specific thing cleaned?” could have gone a long way.

The clean-up was almost flawless, though we did play a little game of ‘spot the missed bits’ afterward. A sneaky cobweb and a blind spot escaped their cleaning crusade. Not a huge thing, but worth mentioning.


  • Smooth online bookings
  • Excellent customer service beforehand
  • Eco-friendly cleaning products


  • Some cleaning blind spots
  • Less communication during cleaning process

Customer Reviews

Professional and courteous

“Kiwi Clean Home, was professional and courteous. They did a thorough job and we were very satisfied with the outcome of their services. We would recommend them to anybody that needs help with their cleaning. Thank you for all your help and hard work and for being so responsive to our communications.”

Communication is always consistent

“The team at Kiwi Clean Home are one of the best cleaning companies in Auckland I have ever come across. Their communication is always consistent and so is their standard of cleaning. Not only do they do a fantastic job with residential cleaning but are also very professional when it comes cleaning offices and other commercial premises. Friends I have referred to Kiwi Clean Home have thanked me and raved about their service. Thanks for making life easier team – glad I came across you!”
