Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season are on their way, yet your home may not be ready. Pet hair from shedding animals, windows stained from summer storms, general grime from our attention being focused outdoors—it all adds up to an unpleasant environment in which to spend the next six months.

But we don’t have to tackle housecleaning ourselves, not when there are fun, fall, family things to do in these last few waning weeks of tolerable temperatures.

Instead, try calling Heavenly Touch Maids.

“People are definitely starting to think about the holidays and the interior of their homes,” explains Heavenly Touch’s Rebecca Manion, who will likely be the person you speak with when you call. “We’re getting lots of calls from people who want to schedule a good holiday cleaning—it’s just as important as a spring cleaning—and from those who want to schedule weekly service now that the hectic days of summer are behind them.”

More than the desire for a fresh, clean home, Heavenly Touch’s clients want more free time.

“Many of our clients highly value their family time,” says Rebecca. “No one wants to spend November and December—the holidays—cleaning the house, and no one wants to come home to a dirty house. That’s where we come in. It’s like our slogan says, ‘Your time is precious…our time is affordable.’”

Heavenly Touch is an 11-year-old company employing over 30 professionally-trained maids who have cleaned thousands of Greater Akron homes. While many clients opt for weekly or biweekly cleanings, the firm also offers an affordable yet intensive and meticulous deep cleaning known as “The Mini-Spring Cleaning,” which is available all year, even for the holidays.

“With our Mini-Spring Cleaning, we clean virtually everything except the walls—from kitchen cabinets and appliances to furniture, wall art and shelving, to toilets, showers and baseboards,” explains Rebecca. “We can even do window cleaning.”

You can also take the stress out of your autumn weekends by scheduling a regular house cleaning during the week.

To ensure professional results, the maids at Heavenly Touch clean your kitchen floors on their hands and knees.

Two-Person Teams
Heavenly Touch Maids arrive in teams of two, including a team leader who oversees the job. The pair divides and conquers so they can do a professional job without being in your home all day. Working in teams also allows furniture to be moved safely. When was the last time you vacuumed under your sofa?

“Our employees undergo a comprehensive training program, including how to properly dust and vacuum,” says owner Rick Winrod. “Plus, we have weekly refresher training so we stay on top of the industry.”

Flu season is almost upon us, so post-illness cleanings are also a good idea. Some bacteria—like those that cause strep throat and ear infections—can live outside of the body for long periods of time.

“It can be really frustrating when your house is never clean and you always seem to be playing catch-up,” Rebecca says. “Plus, we know how to clean. We know how to remove stains from granite, marble, stainless steel and fine wood furniture without damaging them.”

The Heavenly Touch Maids staff has long-term tenure and gets rave reviews. “Our clients are very happy with us,” Rebecca smiles. “Word-of-mouth is our biggest source of new clients.”
