“Labor Day is a glorious holiday because your child will be going back to school the next day. It would have been called Independence Day, but that name was already taken.”  —Bill Dodds, noted journalist and humorist

It’s so hard to believe, yet here we are rapidly moving toward fall. Lovers young and old look forward to the romance of nature’s changing hues and weather. For those aged in between, most of whom are parents, the coming of fall means one thing: They are going to get their house back. 

Back to School – Back to a Clean House
Young men and women are returning to college or heading there for their first time. And school-aged children will be returning to a day full of activities away from home. That means now is the ideal time to have your home deep cleaned to bring it back to the top-notch level of clean you want to live in. 

For most families, a long summer means dirt being traipsed in and out, open windows allowing dust and bacteria to migrate all over the inside of their home, and all of the unwelcome things pets bring inside with them. 

If that at all sounds like your home, the chances are high that it could use the kind of thorough cleaning most people certainly dread doing. Fortunately, high-quality cleaning companies like The Maids do that work each and every day. 

Gaining More Time & More Clean
Michael Manhoff, owner of The Maids of Northeast Ohio, is an authority on “Back-to-School” housecleaning. 

“We know virtually everyone is amazed at how dirty a house can get in just a few short months when they give up or cut back on cleaning during that hectic time,” he says. 

“If you are working, attending to extra-curricular activities for your kids and attempting to have a little time for yourself, the thought of doing a major deep clean before you begin your weekly fall cleaning is daunting, if not frightening, for most people.” 

“That’s a big part of why we are in business,” he continues. 

“When you call us and ask for a deep clean, we do a detailed and thorough cleaning so that subsequent cleanings don’t have to be so time consuming. Our customers love it and most find themselves hiring us to do their regular cleaning. They enjoy the extra time in their busy schedule that we allow, just as much as their whole family enjoys living in clean home.”

The Golden Rule
Mike understands more than most the importance of people and how we treat each other, because without good people he would have no customers and no labor force to serve them. 

“As our children go back to school, I think it’s a good idea that we all remember to do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” he says. 

“We have developed a culture where our employees are treated exactly the way we would want to be treated. We have lots of birthday and anniversary parties and we try to make everything a fun learning experience. At the end of the day, we still get a massive amount of work done.” 


“We are constantly striving for improvement in everything we do,” he adds. “We treat our customers the way we would want to be treated as consumers.”
