Where are you on cleaning day?

A ladies shopping safari, days at the pool with the kids or maybe time in the garden—the summer is always more fun when The Maids do the cleaning for you.

My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.” —Erma Bombeck

Erma Bombeck certainly had some strong opinions on housework and where it fit into the real scheme of things. In her time, Erma did more than anyone with her humor and grace to help us understand that family comes first and a woman’s (or a man’s) time is far better spent in other pursuits rather than cleaning house. 

That view was fine until balanced with views of people like my mother, who pounded into my head that if you are going to have nice things, you have to take care of them so they’ll stay nice. That meant lots of dusting, cleaning, polishing and waxing, which makes me tired just thinking about it all.

So there is the dilemma of housekeeping. Live a carefree life accompanied by a lot of dust, clutter and stains, or have a tidy home where things stay nice and you stay tired and pre-occupied. These days, many people take a third route. They have their home professionally cleaned and do their best to enjoy the best of both worlds—a clean, well-maintained home and a life with the freedom to pursue time with family, friends or other interests.

Should You Stay or Should You Go?
The problem is that many of those people choosing a maid service lose a big part of the time advantage of using that service by staying home anyway. They feel they have to shadow the maid to make sure the cleaning is done correctly, that nothing is broken, or, worse yet, that something will come up missing if they aren’t there. Some folks do this because of a real experience they had with a previous service.

That’s where a company like The Maids of Northeast Ohio makes all the difference. Every team of maids has a team leader who is familiar with your home and is knowledgeable about your preferences and the areas that are most critical to you. This system ensures your home will be cleaned correctly and to your satisfaction—each and every time. 


The Maids also employs an office staff that is customer focused and dedicated to the satisfaction of the people employing their service. On the rare occasion there is an accident, the team will report it to the office where a resolution is made quickly and cheerfully. 

A Service You Can Trust
“Well over half of our customers allow us access to their homes for cleaning while they are at work, on vacation or just doing the things they enjoy doing away from home,” Mike Manhoff, owner of The Maids of Northeast Ohio, explains.

“Because our turnover is among the lowest in the industry, our clients get to know our employees to the point where some of them think of our people as family members. That’s a big compliment, and maintaining a staff of this quality is a big commitment to live up to. We do it by carefully vetting every potential new hire. We’ve been at this for a long time and we know the right person for the job when we meet him or her. We train our employees in the art of top-quality customer service and incentivize them to always do the right thing.”

Imagine yourself free from the worry about when you will have time to clean. What will you be doing this summer with your spare time?
