The clean and dirty details about hiring a maid service in Philadelphia
Your home is your sanctuary. It is the place you retreat to after a long, hectic day. You don’t want to come home and have to clean in order to sit back and relax. When it comes to maintaining a clean home, many people often find it necessary to hire a home cleaning company to keep their home looking its best at all times. There are many benefits to hiring a maid service, including the fact that it can take away a lot of stress and provide a professional level of cleaning in your home.
Not all cleaning companies are the same and it is important that you know which cleaning services are reputable. When searching for the best home cleaning company, it can be helpful to do your research and know what to look for.
- One of the first things you may want to do is check with the better business bureau and make sure they are a reputable business. When you agree to allow someone into your home that you do not know, you want to make sure who you are letting in with the most information possible. This is especially important if you will not be home when the cleaning takes place.
- Second, ask for references and read reviews. There is nothing more important than relying on what others tells you. Clients that have used that particular maid service are going to be honest and frank. You need that kind of valuable information to help make an informed decision.
- It is also important to ask the potential company for proof of insurance. This includes workers compensation, liability and bonding. These items are important so that you know you are dealing with a professional and reliable business.
- Last but certainly not least, call the company and ask questions.
- Ask a lot of questions.
Some questions to ask would be:
- How long have you been in business?
- Can you supply proof of insurance?
- How many people come to clean one home?
- Will the same people come each week?
- Do you do background checks on your cleaning team when hiring?
- What does your standard service consist of?
- Can I ask for extra cleaning?
- What do you charge?
- Do you supply your own equipment and supplies?
- How does the scheduling work?
The list can go on and on but those are the basic questions you should be asking to get a general idea of the company culture and if they will fit into your lifestyle.

HERE COME THE ALLERGIES!!!!
Just when it felt like spring was here in the Philadelphia area, winter started creeping back in. But in that brief period of time of warm spring-like weather, it was just enough time for mother nature to plant her seeds. The growth of weeds, spores, grass and tree pollens fell upon us. Everything started to bloom and it was just enough time to bring on the allergens. The cold weather in the Philadelphia area won’t last long and soon the warm and hot weather will be here. This also brings on allergy season and to many, the cold weather hasn’t slowed the allergies.
This means your allergy symptoms, the sniffling, sneezing, watery and itchy eyes, are in overdrive. What can you do to help lessen the allergies? Of course, visiting your doctor and making sure you are getting the correct treatment is a number one priority, but what else can you do?
Stay inside – the best way to treat your allergy symptoms is to stay away from the culprit as best you can. Pollen is flying everywhere. It is predicted to be so bad this year that even in the southern states where spring has already sprung, pollen is actually quite visible. The green coating is everywhere and for people who suffer from allergies, just looking at that thick layer on your car is enough to trigger the sneezes. Try to avoid the allergens as best you can. When pollen counts soar, stay indoors as much as possible. Pollen is usually at it’s peak mid-morning, early evening and when the wind is blowing.
Keep your windows closed! – Keep the windows shut, even if it’s the perfect spring day. That beautiful breeze that you want to feel on your face is exactly what’s pushing all that pollen around and right into your house. Keeping the windows closed is a sure fire way to keep the allergies at bay.
Clean your house – One of the best ways to keep the allergens out of your house is to keep your house clean. A light dusting everyday, over everything, will help keep you from having an attack. Keeping linens clean and fresh and carpets vacuumed will help get rid of any pollen or other allergens that can creep into your home. You carry that pollen in with you. You can transfer it from the outdoors just by stepping out of your car and going right into your home. Once inside, those allergens spread and settle all around your house. Dusting everyday will help keep it at bay.
Hire a maid service – Hiring a cleaning service can lower your allergen levels in your home drastically. They will clean surfaces and in places you don’t think to do yourself. Hidden spaces trap dust and allergens and if stirred, can set you on a sneezing attack. The professionals at Executive Maids have been keeping homes allergy free for years. They understand where the culprit lies within your home and they know how to attack and get rid of it.

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.
The professionals at Executive Maids will handle the vacuuming and dusting. We will disinfect the bathrooms and kitchen, mop the floors, clean the tubs and toilets as well as wipe down all major appliances. We can also tackle your major spring-cleaning, window cleaning and any other deep cleaning your house may need from time to time. We will clean any areas within our scope that you feel will help free up your time (and life). We can work with you on a schedule that fits into your time and budget.
We understand that life gets in the way of a clean home. Have less mess with Executive Maids. Let us work for you and help lessen the chaos in your life. If you are in the Philadelphia area, give us a call!

Executive Maids Provided Us With Much More Than We Thought They Would
“During the month of May I was in a whirlwind of trouble. I had the sale of my fathers house, moving him up to Levittown and getting house ready for settlement deal with. My father is not in good shape and my sisters and I were the ones to deal with the whole mess. On top of that I have severe medical issues myself and settlement came right smack dab in the middle of me getting chemo. I called executive Maids once I realized that I was running out of time and wasn’t going to be able to do any of the cleaning that was necessary. Two days before settlement I called them up knowing that I was probably too late. That they must already be too busy. To my delighted surprise Executive maid did make for my fathers house on such short notice. They sent 3 professional cleaners and they came in and got busy immediately and I didn’t have do a thing! I couldn’t believe how fast the girls took care of the job. It was like they attacked the job. When they were done I felt I got so much more than I thought I did, the place was spotless in less than 3 hours. The biggest thing executive maids did for me was remove the stress. I saw within 10 minutes that the girls had things completely under control and I could relax, the job WAS going to get done. I felt a weight lift off my shoulders. It was worth 5 times what we paid them. Another striking thing about the company was the positive attitude that they had while dealing with a frantic, stressed out customer that they had never heard from before. I would recommend this cleaning company to anyone. You will find they do a more thorough job than we ever could and you’ll find hiring them is the best move you made. Thanks executive maids, you truly eased my m at a terribly hectic time.” Move out Cleaning for parent’s home 5/2013.
