Peace will come when people live In friendship, side by side, And cherish understanding More than hatred, greed and pride. Peace will come when people see All people as the same, And no one has to live in fear, In ignorance, or shame. Peace will come when people Who are needy can reach out For shelter, food, or love, And no has to do without. Peace will come when people Learn to listen and to care About the rights and dignity Of people everywhere. Peace will come when love and trust And kindness know rebirth, And on that day all people Will rejoice in peace on earth.
“Peace” by Amanda Bradley
Memorial day originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while serving the country in military service.

Combating Your Home for the Warm Summer Weather
Summer is slowly approaching in the Philadelphia area. With it, comes hot, sticky weather, plenty of bugs and lots of dirt and debris. All of this enters your home and settles on your floors, walls and furniture. What can you do to minimize the summer from coming into your home so that you can actually get out and enjoy the summer outside? There are a few things you can do to minimize the negative side of the summer months from getting into your home, courtesy of your favorite Philadelphia cleaning service!
They are out there and in the summertime all those insects try to creep into your home. Don’t let them! Look around your house to make sure there aren’t areas where insects such as ants or roaches can sneak into your home. If you see an ant trail, for example, it may be time to call pest control. Protect the inside of your home by keeping those pests outside.
Garbage Can Control
When the weather gets hotter and the humidity gets stronger, so do the garbage odors in your indoor and outdoor garbage cans. Minimize this by cleaning them out frequently in summer months. Rinse the cans with a hose, dump out the water and spray with disinfectant. Let the cans sit for a few minutes and rinse again. Turn upside down to dry.
Kids play in the summer and so the dirt and grass comes with them when they are done playing. Doormats or welcome mats can help keep your floors clean as they help remove dirt and debris from shoes before entering your home. They also absorb wetness to help minimize water leakage on your floors or carpet. Have the kids enter your house through a back door or garage and remove their shoes (and clothing if they can) and leave the day behind!
Laundry, Laundry and More Laundry!
The summer months mean less clothing but somehow, more laundry. Between washing beach towels, bathing suits and stained clothes from outside play, the laundry seems to pile up. Try doing a load of laundry at night when things are cooler and instead of running your dryer, hang the clothes to dry. You also need to protect your washing machine from mold and mildew. The humidity in summer months will cause your washing machine to smell. Occasionally run an empty load with detergent and hot water. Once the load is complete, leave the door open so it can properly dry.
Don’t Do It Alone!
Summer is time for vacations, beaches, pool parties and barbecues. It is not meant to be inside cleaning your home. Executive Maids can help reign back some of those summer chores and allow you to concentrate on the more important things that the summer has to offer. We are one of the best Philadelphia cleaning services in the business.

Four HUGE reasons why you should hire a maid service to clean your home…
It may seem luxurious or frivolous, but hiring a house cleaner makes perfect sense. Times have changed for the house cleaning service industry. There has been a shift of focus on serving the customer and their unique needs. Here are four huge reasons why you should hire a cleaning service for your home:
- Nobody can clean everything – We all have some house cleaning job that tends to get away from us. It isn’t from lack of trying, it just happens. You may be an ace at vacuuming or mopping floors but when it comes to dusting or cleaning hard to reach areas, you fail. Maybe you are so busy with other things in life that house cleaning takes a back seat. Clean the things you are good at and have time for. Hire a cleaning service to do the rest. How much happier would you be if you didn’t have to clean a toilet again?
- Having a clean home can save you money – Let’s face it. Your home is your single most important monetary investment. Maintaining it on the surface is essential to its overall value. All the things that require regular maintenance to stay clean and fresh like tile, floors, countertops and baseboards are items that over time can build up with grime and grease. If they aren’t maintained regularly, eventually they will need to be resurfaced or replaced. Who wants that added expense when all it needed was a little regular elbow grease?
- Your health deserves it – having a clean home means less dirt, bacteria, insects and other parasites that can cause illness. The cleaning you tackle on your own is important, but hiring professional cleaners who use commercial grade equipment and supplies will ensure every nook and cranny in your home is getting clean. This means less dirt and bacteria that can get you sick. And it’s a savings on your wallet too. Less illness means less doctors visits. You and your family deserve an allergy-free, sick-free home!
- Your time is more valuable – Spending the day on Saturday to clean is not a really good use of your time. Especially when you are so busy during the week. The weekends are for fun and relaxation. Time spent with loved ones. When you budget for a cleaning service, it is time you give back to yourself and your family. That time isn’t just valuable, it’s priceless.
Hiring a house cleaner may seem like a luxury but it is something that actually may save you money, time and effort in the long run. At Executive Maids, we want to ensure that you have a clean home and free time to do the things that are important to you and your family. Let the professionals do the work so you don’t have to.
Contact us today. We work with every size home and every budget. We want to help you free up your valuable time so you can focus on life.
