"I have used The Maids for years. I completely trust them, not only in my home but to do a perfect job. My team is like having a family visit. The team leader is attentive and cares about the quality of the work. It is a great feeling to know that not only do you come home to a clean house, it is ready for those unexpected drop-ins. Having them once a week motivates me to keep the clutter picked up. I could not do without them." -Barbara
"I hired The Maids As part of the move-out inspection for the sale of my home. I have had other services clean for my previous moves. By far, The Maids are the most professional and thorough company I have ever dealt with. The buyers were so impressed with how clean the house was that they sent us a thank you note. The price was reasonable, the crew came right on time, and every crew member was knowledgeable and attentive. They went way above my expectations. I highly recommend this company." - Judith
"They clean my home better than I do!" - Ryan
