Why hiring a maid service isn’t just women’s work…
Philadelphia is a city swarming with culture, activity and opportunity. So many huge corporations call Philadelphia their headquarters. Many young professionals flock here for the opportunities that await. And most of them never leave. They find a nice condo in the heart of the city or a cool house in the suburbs of Montgomery county and they plant a life for themselves. Work becomes so hectic that there is no time for anything else, save the occasional Saturday night fun. That’s when it makes sense to hire a cleaning service to make sure your bachelor pad is forever clean.
When we think about hiring a cleaning service, we envision the busy mom with no time on her hands for cleaning. But, did you know there are many men who make these household decisions as well? Sure, the husband and wife usually make the decision together to hire a maid service, but what about the single men out there?
We live in an age where family units are not the traditional Mom, Dad, kids and dog version. Some family units aren’t family at all. Many men and women are so focused on their career, that they make the decision not to marry and have kids. So they have pets or roommates and that is their family. Or the single dad who is so busy trying to support his family while finding time to be with his kids as much as he can. There are so many good, hardworking people out there and so many people who need the help of a cleaning service.
To all the hard working men out there…
Did you know you can get the help you need taking care of your home without relying on Mom or a girlfriend to take on the household chores? There are so many cleaning services out there that can make your life just a little simpler. At Executive Maids, we can tackle your household chores (even the embarrassing ones) so that you can continue being the best young professional that you can be. Besides, do you really want to bring a date home to a sloppy, messy house? We think not!

You want to maintain a good, clean household for your children when you have them but you don’t have the time to do it yourself. Hire the maid. No one will judge you. We promise.

Hiring the Help – Why finding the right maid service for you shouldn’t be so hard
So you’ve decided to hire a maid service to help with the heavy, necessary cleaning that you just don’t have time for. You’ve pondered about it for a good while and decided, you just need the help. Life gets in the way and cleaning takes a back seat. But cleaning is necessary. It’s important to have a clean home for obvious reasons but it also keeps us healthy and less stressed when things are clean and organized. It is just a fact of life for anyone. Cleaning is a necessary evil that everyone must tackle.
Now that you’ve let the guilt walk out the door, the idea that you actually need the help has subsided, you need to figure out WHO you are going to hire. And that is no easy feat. There are thousands of maid services and cleaning companies in every city across this country. If you Google “maid service” or “cleaning company” just for your town, you are guaranteed to see tons of them pop up. So how can you choose? It seems so daunting but there are some tips to help you find the right cleaning service to fit your needs. It may take some time and numerous phone calls and website visits, but you will find the perfect help for your cleaning needs.
You’ve done some searching on the Internet and came up with a few contenders (you may have liked their website or if you called, the person on the other end had a pleasant voice). Next, you need to narrow it down. You do this by interviewing your potential cleaning service. Interview, you say? Why yes. You are hiring a person or company to enter your home and clean your private space, why wouldn’t you interview them?
Here are some tips during your interview process (this can be in person or on the phone but it is still an interview):
Do you have proof of insurance?
Asking a cleaning service for proof of insurance and is a no brainer. If they are insured and honest, they will have no problem supplying this information to you. If they don’t have insurance, run. That is a risk that you just shouldn’t be willing to take.
How long have you been in business?
It’s important to know how long the service has been in business so that you can gauge the level of professionalism they can supply. The longer someone knows a business, the more apt they are to do the job right. They’ve done their trial and error, you don’t want it to start with you.
How many people do you have on each assignment?
It’s important to know how many people will enter your home, especially if they will be cleaning when you aren’t home. Usually a team of 2 or 3 is sufficient. They will get the job done quicker, keep an eye on each other and be out the door a lot faster.
Do you do background checks on your employees?
This one is pretty important. You want to know that the type of people entering your home are honest, hard working people. That isn’t asking for too much.
What is your cleaning process like?
It’s important to HOW they clean your home. What equipment and supplies, what they clean and what they don’t, how they clean something. These are important questions you want to ask because remember, you are doing the hiring and they are entering your home to clean.
At Executive Maids, we can answer all of these questions and more. We are open and honest about our company and our reputation proves this. See how well we can clean your home.

Get Ready for summer!
The unofficial start of summer is here! With Memorial Day weekend behind us, we can actually feel the summer beginning. It is a time of sun and fun, endless summer nights and family gatherings outside. If you are like me and love to be outdoors, but actually loathe the outdoors, I can assure you that you are not alone. I love the beach and the ocean but I hate bringing it home with me. I hate sand in my flip-flops, on my car mats and in my home. I love family cookouts but I hate mosquitoes and smoky smelling hair when it’s over. I’m certainly not a Debbie Downer by any stretch of the imagination; I just have a touch of OCD. So what does a girl like me do when summer is here? First, I try to relax about the little things I cannot control. Second, I try to defend myself against the outdoor elements that I can control. Lastly, I hire a maid service to help control summer when it gets into my home.
I can’t control the heat and humidity so I just don’t think about it. I can control mosquito bites and sand everywhere. Whatever is left, I rely on my cleaning service to tackle it. I armor myself and my children heavily with bug repellent when I know we are going to be spending time outdoors. That means, the family picnics as well as time at the beach. When we leave the beach, I carefully shake everything out before anyone gets in the car. If there are shower facilities at the beach, I hose everyone and everything down. When we get home, there is bound to be sand still attached to things. I don’t fret. Everything we used goes into the laundry room. Any untracked sand on my floors gets tackled by the maid service within a few days.
Summer is an exciting time in the Philadelphia area. The winter is behind us and the warm weather is upon us. Time for visiting family and enjoying all that the beautiful outdoors has to offer us. Summer is so short it seems. We really need to take the time to enjoy it without worrying about the elements that can drive us crazy.
I certainly can’t control summer from getting into my home but I can control how I choose to handle it. I hired Executive Maids to come in and clean my home each week. In the summer months, I can work the cleaning schedule around our outdoor activities. If we are at the beach on a Saturday and family cookout on Sunday, I will schedule the ladies to come on Monday. This way my house is fresh and clean and sand free for the week ahead. Now this is something I can control! Executive Maids will work around your schedule so that you aren’t worrying about summer’s little messes.

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.
