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.

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.
Live Life, We’ll Clean Up!
Everyone is busy these days. Families have work and school. Individuals have work and a social life. No matter what your situation is, chances are, you are busy living life. Why worry about cleaning your home or apartment? Let the experts do that for you! Executive Maids is the best choice in the Philadelphia area for cleaning services. We focus on residential cleaning which includes apartments, condos, townhouses and single homes of any size. We are experts in the field and have been serving the area since 1993.
Many people are almost ashamed to admit they have a maid service cleaning their home because they are afraid people will judge them to be either lazy or snobby. This couldn’t be further from the truth! People hire maid services so they can live life! As we age, it gets more difficult to do certain cleanings. Some people work 40 hours or more a week and the last thing they want to do is spend their days off cleaning. Many people work maid service into their budget so that they have time to enjoy more important things in life. Cleaning service is not just reserved for the wealthy anymore!
The benefit of having a cleaning service clean the entire house at the same time has no comparison to trying to do it yourself. You may pick certain days of the week to do particular rooms or cleanings but, seldom do you clean your entire house in one shot. A maid service like Executive Maids, come in teams of three and get the job done all at once. You are most likely doing all your house cleaning by yourself. When three people are doing it, not only is it done more thoroughly, it is done quicker!
Another benefit to hiring a maid service is your house will be cleaner than you would do yourself. This comment is in no way meant to demean your house cleaning skills. But, maid services are professional cleaners. This is what they do for a living. They know the proper supplies to use, have industrial equipment and have a routine for cleaning that works. You can probably get your house spic and span clean, but is the elbow grease you have to put into it, really worth it?
At Executive Maids, we want you to live life! Of course, you have to work to be able to afford your home. But, when work is done, wouldn’t you rather reserve your time off for more important things? Like raising your family or spending time with friends. Anything that you enjoy on your free time is what living life is about. Not waking up on Saturday morning to clean your house.
Contact Executive Maids today and let us show you how we can make your life a lot easier. We are the best Philadelphia maid service and we would love the opportunity to show you. You should be living life, we should be cleaning up for you!

How exactly does the best maid service in Philadelphia clean your home?
The secret to Executive Maids cleaning system is simple; we come to you threefold. Every job we do, we arrive in with a team of three cleaners. A three-member team allows us to be quick yet efficient while we clean your home. Our cleaners are well trained and focus on the kitchen, bathrooms and dusting and vacuuming the rest of the house. We focus on these areas but can certainly do more as you please. We call these special projects and can discuss this with you when making up your schedule.
With our team of three uniformed cleaners arriving at your house weekly or monthly (or how often you feel your house is in need of cleaning), they quickly focus on their individual tasks and work efficiently to get your house clean in no time. Don’t stress over their quickness not producing quality work. A supervisor is one of the cleaners and she inspects all work to make sure everything has been cleaned. This system allows each team member to focus on their tasks at hand but also reduces the time they need to be in your home.
Our areas of focus are the kitchen, bathrooms, dusting and vacuuming. This is our systematic approach to cleaning. Other areas or deeper cleaning can be done for an extra charge and at your request. Kitchens and bathrooms are wiped down, mopped and disinfected. The other areas of your home are thoroughly dusted and vacuumed. Essentially, the cleaning you do each week, we can handle for you. The deeper cleaning you tend to each month or season, such as oven cleaning and window washing, we can tackle for you as well.
Once you choose Executive Maids, we figure out a cleaning schedule together and then we talk about your cleaning needs. As soon as this is established, we line up our three-member team and get to work. We come to your house with our own equipment and supplies but we are always happy to work with your own materials if you choose. After all, this is your home and we want to be as accommodating as possible for you and your family. Executive Maids has been Philadelphia’s choice for home cleaning since 1993. We understand your needs and will coordinate your cleaning needs with your lifestyle. We want you to focus on the important things in your life, not the dust bunnies that creep up when you aren’t looking. Leave that to us.
