Secrets of a slob: How Philadelphia’s best maid service saved me!
I have a major secret that I hide from everyone, even my friends and family. I am a slob. I am a very messy, sloppy, single woman who should know better than to keep an unkempt house. I hate cleaning. The thought of pulling out a vacuum cleaner or dust mop sends my brain into overload and I can’t function. If you visit my home, however, you would never know. I hire a maid service to clean my house every week. Secret number two. No one knows this either.
I haven’t always been a slob. When I was younger, my mother would keep our little Philadelphia house very orderly. In return, we learned to keep things very organized as well. My mother was a housewife who never worked a day in her life. It was extremely important to her to run a tight ship and the make sure her children followed in that path. Don’t ever dare think about putting a drink down on the coffee table without a coaster. As a matter of fact, do not think about bringing a drink into the living room at all. As I got older and moved away to college, I started to learn the freedom of throwing my clothes on the floor and leaving dishes in the sink of my off campus apartment. It was my space and I loved the freedom. Then I became a mature, responsible, working adult. I had my own apartment, a career and a fabulous new life. I’ve had that fabulous life for a while now. But I can’t seem to keep it clean. Maybe it’s rebellion from the way my mother raised us. Maybe it’s my prerogative as a working adult. I’m not sure. But what I am sure of is that I can’t keep my life orderly by myself.
I hired Executive Maids over two years ago and they saved my messy, untidy life. I am forever on the go and as I mentioned, I hate cleaning. My job requires me to travel and when I come home from a trip, the last thing I want to see is dust bunnies and cobwebs everywhere. Executive Maids comes every week, usually while I am out of town, like little invisible fairies. They vacuum and dust and wipe down all surfaces. No one ever has to know. They’ve also taught me to be more mindful and less sloppy. Knowing they are coming, I am less likely to leave dishes in the sink or my underwear on the floor. That’s just common courtesy when someone, anyone is coming to your home.
If you are a busy person, no matter what your circumstances are, consider hiring Executive Maids. They will change your life forever, just like they did mine. They are professional, courteous and serve the Philadelphia area. Call them today to learn about their pricing and scheduling. They are discreet if you need them to be so no one ever has to know your secret either.

Why hiring a maid service can eliminate the mess in your life!
It’s no secret that we sometimes come home and don’t want to be bothered with a thing. We want to throw off our work clothes and leave the hectic day behind us. During a crazy work week, cleaning and organizing our home is the last thing we want to deal with. And then comes the weekend. Spend a whole Saturday doing chores? Not really a fun idea.
How can we create that work/home balance and still be able to enjoy our life?
Creating less mess in the first place is always a good start. But this idea isn’t always feasible. Life happens. The soccer game ran late which meant dinner was late. Homework needed to get done and the dishes in the sink took a back seat. Next thing you know it’s 10:00pm and you are too exhausted to think about anything else. The last thing, at this point, you are thinking of is mopping down that kitchen floor. You opt to take the clothes out of the dryer and fold them while you watch a little television. But what happens to the dirty dishes and that un-mopped kitchen floor?
If you have time to get a few of the household chores done during the week, you are ahead of the game. If you hire a maid service to tackle the rest, you are eliminating the need to spend down time (if any) trying to catch up. Having a professional address your mess can be life changing. It can free you up to be more functional at other things in your life.
At Executive Maids, we strive to make your life as easy as possible by eliminating the major cleaning and attention your home needs in order to function. Running a household is hard work. Work, kids, school, doctors appointments, soccer practice, anything is usually more important than doing housework. Hiring a maid service makes good practical sense for you and your family. While Executive Maids won’t change your sheets or do your laundry, we handle a multitude of other tasks that can be taken off your plate. This way, other household items are a breeze. You can assign chores to everyone in your house, Executive Maids can tackle the items no one wants to do and the housework is done before you know it.

Spring Cleaning: A time to deep clean the house and welcome the warmer weather!
Spring is approaching and, according to tradition, spring-cleaning is the most practical time to clean after a long, cold winter. It is the first time in many months that you can open your windows to air out the dust and let the fresh air come in. Spring-cleaning is also used to describe any sort of deep cleaning, no matter when it takes place.
Springtime has always indicated a time of renewal and regrowth. Your house should reflect that same freshness that comes with leaving the cold winter months behind and welcoming the warmer weather. It is an opportunity to throw open the windows, let some fresh air in, and make your home a clean, happy and efficient space.
A professional spring-cleaning incorporates heavier, more time-consuming chores with routine tasks such as dusting, cleaning the kitchen, scrubbing the bathroom and washing/vacuuming the floors. In addition to routine cleaning, it can include washing your windows and moving the furniture to clean in all the nooks and crannies. Your house becomes stagnant in winter. You neglect certain areas of your house because it is just too cold to do deep cleaning. The windows go unwashed, the vacuuming becomes less frequent and the basement and/or attic becomes the dumping ground for all those holiday decorations and presents with no organization in site. Hiring a professional maid service to do your deep spring-cleaning is a great way to make sure every area is cleaned to give you a clean slate and fresh start in welcoming the spring and summer months.
Executive Maids can conduct a thorough cleaning of your home to get it ready for spring and summer. You don’t realize how desperately your house needs a deep cleaning after the cold months. As flu season leaves and allergy season approaches, it is important to deep clean for your health sake. Having a clean home can have other money saving benefits as well. Having less mess and clutter can lead to greater productivity. Plus you’ll be more inspired to keep up with your cleaning after you’ve gotten a fresh start!
Get your home in shape for the summer months and family get-togethers. Let Executive Maids do the heavy cleaning for you so you can tackle much more important things in life. Part of spring-cleaning is doing all of that “deep cleaning” that you put off all winter long. Executive Maids can do the work for you in a fraction of the time it would take you to do it by yourself. With our commercial grade cleaning supplies and equipment, we are sure to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
You can always set a weekend aside to get that spring-cleaning done. However, for those that would rather seek out the help of a Philadelphia area maid service, we at Executive Maids promise that we will meet every single demand that you make! After all, cleaning is our specialty and we are not satisfied with our services unless our clients truly are! To hear more about our cleaning services, please give us a call today!

Executive Maids – Why hiring a maid service is important to your work/life balance!
Many people will tell you that hiring a maid service is an indulgence. Years ago having “help” was a social ranking and you were automatically classed as privileged or rich because you had people taking care of your daily household chores. In our day and age, hiring a maid service is completely different for many reasons. More women work while trying to raise a family. Many have working husbands or are single working mothers. In a nutshell, the entire household is busy trying to balance their work life and their family life.
Who has time to clean a messy house?
Hiring a maid service does not make you better than anyone nor should you be looked down upon as not being able to raise your family without help. We all struggle in life for many reasons. There are the sick or elderly who physically can’t clean. There are working moms who would rather come home to a clean house and spend that extra time taking care of their family. Single adults are trying to balance their busy careers with trying to maintain a social life. The reasons are vast and many. Hiring a maid service is efficient and affordable.

Keeping your house clean is not only important for the opinion of the house-guests you entertain, but for your overall health as an occupant of that house. It’s true. Wiping away the germs from a wintry cold and sanitizing kitchen and bathroom areas as well as door knobs and handrails and the like make for a much healthier environment.
It may not be possible to clean the house you live in yourself because, well…sometimes life just gets in the way, but there is no need to panic. Executive Maid cleaning services are available in the Philadelphia Metro area that cover an array of chores and projects. Of course, the nature of the service you want is dictated amongst other things by the budget you are willing to allocate to cleaning services.
Why would you need a daily cleaning service? If you own a large home and you want to employ someone who will be accountable for the daily cleaning needs of the entire premises, then you may want to hire a daily service. Most often, weekly service works rather well for larger homes. A team of maids come at an arranged time of the day to clean your home and work on a special project.
Going on vacation is an important part of living because it gives an individual the chance to unwind and take a break from their usual work or school routine. When on vacation, most people lock their houses and the very day they come back is bound to be a cleaning day because of the dust build up. Maid services are a good way for ensuring that you come back to a clean and habitable house after your period of relaxation. You may need that the house is cleaned on a daily basis, but since it will not be in use, weekly or even monthly general cleaning is highly recommended. The frequency of having your house cleaned when you are away will be determined by how long you plan on staying away.
Once in a while, it is important to remove upholstery, carpet remnants and fittings for general cleaning. Executive Maids always runs their Spring Cleaning Specials, a perfect time to do a Deep Cleaning. Doing this on a regular basis ensures that contaminants like mold and rodent droppings do not stay too long as to get a chance to be hazardous to good health. While there are many Philadelphia cleaning companies that offer these types of services and will even guide you on how to prevent home contamination yourself, the team at Executive Maids will give you the very best house cleaning service and advice. Check out the blog, it’s full of household tips.
Keeping clean will will help to keep you healthier and prevent those trips to the local Urgent-Care or doctor’s office for dirt-related illnesses or frequent colds.
