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.

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 – 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. It just makes domestic sense.
The bottom line is that everyone can use a little help once in awhile. Executive Maids, located in Philadelphia, can help you with that work/life balance. Life gets in the way sometimes and when it does, there is no time for the domestic chores that consume our lives on a daily basis. Executive Maids is here to help make your life easier.

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.

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.
