We take great pride in being able to identify the right Indian maids for Singapore families.
Why should a Singapore-based family look for an Indian maid? Do they even need a maid? Well, the climate in Singapore is such that you cannot do without a maid. Dusting, mopping, vacuuming is something that has to be done on a daily basis. And then there are other duties such as doing the dishes, laundry, ironing, cleaning bathrooms and so on. You may want the maid to help out with the cooking as well.
There is so much work needed to be done, and hiring an Indian maid is not just a convenience, it’s a necessity. So what does a potential employer do when looking for the right Indian maid for their Singapore home?
Find our website, www.banumaid.com, look up the bio data of the various maids who are listed with our agency. If there are a few candidates they like, they call us by phone and arrange a meeting or ask us for our recommendations based on their very specific requirements.
As you will have noticed on our website, we have bio data of maids from Darjeeling, Punjab, Mizoram, Gujarat, Indonesia and South India. But generally, we specialize in maids from Darjeeling and maids from Punjab. That’s where we get most of our maids from.
Now, here I want to address an issue that matters a great deal. We have found that there is a certain suspicion that many employers share about Punjabi maids.
There are many reasons for this. Some employers will have heard stories from their friends or colleagues about Punjabi helpers. For example, you may have been told by someone that Punjabi maids are not clean or hygienic, that they feel homesick every so often and ask to leave for home well before the end of their two-year contract and so on and so forth.
For these reasons, most people who want us to find maids for them specifically ask for Darjeeling maids and not Punjabi maids. Is that fair? Well, no.
We have had cases for several Punjabi maids who are were very satisfactory and did last the full two-year contract.
So are Darjeeling maids better than Punjabi maids? Not necessarily. Indeed, there are comments made against some of Darjeeling maids as well , that they are too demanding for separate rooms and slow and find it hard to adjust to the hot tropical conditions in Singapore. But Still Most of our Darjeeling maids are well adjusted individuals and their employers are happy enough with them.
The point is, we do have Punjabi helpers who live up to the satisfaction of our clients and a few not-so-good maids from Punjab, who end up going back home long before their contract is up. It’s the same with Darjeeling maids as well.
Again, the rate of success of our housemaids has nothing to do with which state they are from – whether they are from Punjab or Darjeeling or from somewhere else. It is the character of the individual concerned, that makes all the difference. Also how good employers treat them as well.
So do get in touch with us, talk to us about your requirements and be sure that you will be able to find the right housemaid here, based on your specific requirements. Find a housemaid – it does not matter whether they are from Punjab or Darjeeling - who will be up to your satisfaction and last for the full term of their contract.
