House Cleaning Buffalo & WNY


Magic Assistants operates in Buffalo NY and many of it’s surrounding suburbs; providing a variety of cleaning services. Choose us because of our reputation for excellence, eagerness to please, and dedication in our work ethics. We provide professional cleaning services designed to keep your home sparkling and beautiful so that you can focus on things that matter more to you!

You’re in control with Magic Assistants! Below you will find our standard cleaning checklist when caring for a residence, otherwise known as a standard cleaning. As each home is different and requires different needs based on your requests or desires, all checklist’s can be customized to satisfy your needs. Services are adjustable and additional services can be added or subtracted to coincide with your expectations.

Feel free to create your own checklist or “love note” as we like to call them, and we’ll get right to work following your directions.

How It Works?

Residential cleaning services are typically booked in teams of 2 unless the home is larger and requires a larger team or unless we are accommodating a larger schedule. We understand your home is as unique as you are and while your square footage may match your neighbor’s square footage the time it takes to clean each home can vastly differ. All appointments are based on time spent in the home or the amount of time you booked; versus per room or square footage. This way your only paying for the time it takes to clean your home or the amount of time you scheduled for your appointment.

We provide one-time cleaning appointments, recurring appointments or as-needed appointments for your convenience. Recurring appointments can be as frequent or as infrequent as you prefer and you’re never locked into a contract. All of our work is guaranteed; if for any reason you are not pleased with your services, we will make all reasonable efforts to correct those concerns or oversights. Please contact us within 24 hours and we will be happy to assist in a suitable resolution.

  • How many people will come to clean my house?

    Residential cleaning services are typically booked in teams of 2 unless the home is larger and requires a larger team.

  • Do I have to be present for a cleaning?

    No not at all, most of our clients are at work for the day and we keep a key to their home locked away in our lock box at the shop. All keys are coded with a number and never any personal information such as names, addresses or phone numbers.

    Although we do highly recommend someone to be home for the first visit, this way we can introduce ourselves and be walked around to learn the lay-of-the-land and have a better understanding of your preferences likes and dislikes.

  • How long will it take to clean my house?

    All services are customized to your specific needs. The time it will take to clean your house will be dependent on your selected level of cleaning and your home’s criteria.

  • Does the same team come to home at every visit?

    While we certainly try our hardest to send in the exact same team at every visit, unfortunately, is not always possible.  Each visit will have at least one of your team members and your client notes are also heavily detailed so that your team members arriving know exactly what your likes, dislikes, or special requests are.

  • Are you insured and bonded?

    Absolutely, yes! Magic Assistants carries all of the required insurances (liability, disability, workers comp) and is bonded.
