There are many cleaning companies and individuals who clean homes illegally because they have not taken the steps necessary to become a legitimate business. They don’t carry any insurance to protect the homeowner’s possessions and their own employees in case of injury. Many also hire illegal aliens and pay them under the table. Because of this they have almost no overhead and can offer extremely low prices. Clients have no recourse for compensation from these companies if they are unsatisfied with the cleaning or if their belongings are broken or stolen.
