The service has a long history of no-shows, which is a red flag. According to the Terms & Conditions, Homeaglow does not warrant or guarantee cleaning services. It is not a cleaning service, but a website that allows consumers to search for cleaners in their areas. Basically, the website is no better than Craigslist, as there is no customer guarantee. The deal is made between the cleaner and the customer, with Homeaglow acting as a mediator. If the cleaner is a no show, Homeaglow is not responsible, leaving the customer holding the bag.

The question is how many cleaners are utilizing Dapper Maid and Bubbly Cleaning to advertise their services. The large volume of no-show complaints is a major red flag. Is it possible, Dapper Maids is scheduling cleaning appointments with customers, without an actual cleaner? There is no evidence to support this theory, but with the large volume of no-shows and no customer guarantee, it is a possibility.

It looks like most victims connected with Dapper Maid via Groupon. Over the last three years, about 5,000 consumers have filed BBB complaints against Groupon. It has a history of drawing scammers, which is supported by all the BBB complaints. If you take the time to view Groupon’s BBB complaints, you will notice a similarity with Dapper Maid.

It is never a good idea to utilize a service without contact information. Dapper Maid does not provide a phone number or physical address. The address provided is a registered agent. The BBB filing provides a residential address, not a commercial property.
