Although summer paints a pretty picture, it has its own unique cleaning challenges as well. Use these tips from The Maids to ensure your home stays pristine and clutter-free.

Often when out at a quality restaurant, at some point during your meal, the manager might stop by your table and ask, “How is everything this evening?” The restaurant manager is taking the time to reach out, even after the wait staff has inquired about your experience, to ensure quality. This management role is similar to that of The Maids’ field manager. If home during your service, you likely recognize the team members who provide service; however, our field managers are another layer of quality assurance. As staff members, they are invaluable at evaluating quality work, training team members, working with customers…

Summer is the most popular time to sell your home and first impressions are crucial to the sale of your home. According to Coldwell Banker, within 15 seconds a buyer has developed an opinion of your property. Nothing adds to a buyer’s first impression like a clean home. However, selling your home is a busy time, and people don’t often have time to do a thorough cleaning. Cleaning experts at The Maids Home Services offers these hints to help you keep your home clean during the selling process and create a great first impression for buyers. Clean the entryway carefully, it,s the…

Warm weather signals the time to get clutter under control. A time traditionally spent cleaning out nooks and crannies in the Girl on Laptophome, this season the trend is to organize your digital world, which as most of us know, can be a huge mess. According to a recent survey conducted by Microsoft, 60 percent of those polled say their online lives sometimes feel more disorganized than their physical lives. Crystal Hornsby, a construction project engineer from Vancouver, Wash., is feeling the need to get digitally organized this year. “I have two mobile phones, two e-mail accounts, hundreds of digital…

Here at The Maids, we’ve unveiled a bold, updated logo, along with new branding messages designed to build on our position as a highly referred home cleaning service provider. What’s new? The new logo is modernized and the vacuum cleaner as the letter “d” in “Maids” has been swept away.

Four stars complete the visual, representative of the four stellar team members who work together to provide a sparkling, exceptional clean for clients. The Maids’…

Americans love their pets and there are certainly lots of them to love. Sixty three percent of U.S. households own a pet and the most popular animals-dogs and cats-make up 82 percent of all pets, according to the American Pet Products Association. With all those furry friends, it’s no surprise that pet-friendly design is one of the fastest growing interior decorating trends. From high-end home items to the basics, decorating is literally going to the dogs…and cats. Beyond pet-proofing a home for safety, and using a cleaning service to ensure a spotless house, pet-friendly decorating has an increasing number of animal lovers…

It can be easy to get swept up in the panic concerning the flu season. Even with heightened awareness, the same smart health procedures should be followed. Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people, so take everyday actions to stay healthy. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. Here are some more tips to follow: Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective. Avoid touching…

It has become a home decorating craze, finding decorating treasures at flea markets, sales and even in your own attic to give your place a new look. Don’t pass by these great finds because of a little dust and grime. Use these tips from the cleaning experts at The Maids Home Services to fluff your stuff. Coffee and side tables with light wood scratches can be fixed by rubbing the meat of a pecan or walnut into the scratch. Wax crayons that match the wood shade can be a quick fix too and can be found at your local hardware store. Vases…

Pet owners know the cleaning challenges a pet can create. Between shedding hair, pet dander and the occasional “accident,” pet owners have their work cut out for them. On top of that, with the dog days of summer upon us, animals may roam inside and out bringing a lot more than love into your home! Cleaning experts at The Maids Home Services offer these tips for pet owners to keep their homes clean despite a messy pet. Animal allergens are sticky so you must damp wipe the walls and woodwork to remove it. To keep possible messy areas in check, put a place mat…

The methods of a professional cleaning company can literally make homes cleaner and healthier than using most conventional cleaning practices, and it’s a wise idea when hiring a maid services provider to make sure to ask about the company’s cleaning philosophy. Homeowners, when doing their own cleaning, often overlook areas that are cleaned by a service. For instance, The Maids vacuum the tops of ceiling fan blades and under beds, as well as registers and vents, including the refrigerator vent, to reduce dust and allergens in the home. We also damp wipe baseboards and window sills on our first visit to a…

The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming and spring is in the air! This means it’s time for spring cleaning! With The Maids - you can let us handle the dirty work for you. But there are other chores that need some attention each spring too, and you can start them by making a switch, then let The Maids do the rest. Switch: The Mattress. Turn it over, and then switch the top of the mattress to the bottom of the bed. This reduces concave areas and should be repeated every six months. Do not forget to vacuum mattresses using the…

There are countless maid services and cleaning professionals from which to choose. Just open your phone book to maid service or maids and butlers and you’ll be faced with numerous options in a house cleaning company. Choosing based upon a clever advertisement alone may not yield a sparkling, healthy home. When evaluating a cleaning services company, consumers should have high expectations and not settle for anything but the best home maid service. Look for key benefits and exceptional service levels to ensure your peace of mind. Home maid service involves more than just cleaning! When it comes to home maid service, be assured…

Modern home selling has gone way beyond the “for sale” sign on the front lawn. Nearly 90 percent of home buyers look online when shopping for a home, according to the National Association of Realtors. So your home-selling efforts need to cruise the Information Superhighway at top speed. “Despite a slowdown in the housing market, real estate consumers have increased their usage of the Internet as their ‘go-to’ real estate information source in order to successfully find the home they purchase,” says Greg Healy, vice president of operations for ForSaleByOwner.com. “Consumers are becoming more independent in the home-buying process, and…

Never mind the sparkling countertops or bleached sheets, the crumb-free floor or snug bath robe hanging in the closet. What lurks beyond the hotel room door that requires your immediate attention are the uninvited guests who remain there long after the last guest - bed bugs. When traveling, be on the lookout for the parasitic hitchhikers to avoid an outbreak in your own home. Bed bugs affix themselves to clothing, furniture and bedding and are transported from place to place by humans unaware. In an effort to keep homes clean and healthy, The Maids offer these simple steps to minimize exposure to bed…

Your vacation should have relaxed and recharged you - so why is going back to work so hard? Here’s how to diminish the seemingly inevitable post-trip letdown: Pace yourself. Don’t try to plan every minute of your vacation for maximum activity. Build in sufficient time to relax so you don’t return to work exhausted from your “fun.” Schedule your return a couple of days early. Give yourself a day or so between vacation and going back to work; it can help ease the transition to your duties. Let others know your plans. Let clients and co-workers know you’re away and provide…

It’s been a great week for the purse drive! On Tuesday, Linda Crosby, Director of Sales, and Wayne Phillips dropped off 115 purses filled with personal care items to 3 shelters. They were RICA in Baltimore, Mountain Manor in Baltimore, and The Children’s Home in Catonsville. Below is a photo we took with Penny Makris, the CEO of RICA. We are rolling right along and have collected 500 purses thus far! This Saturday we will be putting the personal care items in the purses and getting them staged into lots to ready them for delivery. They should all be handed…

Hiring friends, family or a neighbor as a housekeeper may seem like a good idea. Especially in a tough economy, it seems like a great way to save money and a way to help someone out who may be struggling. These arrangements often turn sour, sometimes having emotional, financial or legal consequences. What To Look For In A Housekeeper Ability Ability to clean may seem simple, but the housekeeper should be in good health and able to clean according to the schedule you determine. Reliable transportation is often important. You should also agree up front if you will provide cleaning supplies or…

The snow has melted, the sun is shimmering, and you are suffering.  Springtime is synonymous with allergies, forcing millions upon millions to continually combat the sneezes and sniffles.

If you’ve got allergy or asthma symptoms, it’s time to call The Maids, the only residential cleaning company to clean exclusively for health.

BALTIMORE – As the holidays approach, it’s important to remember the less fortunate in local communities. One program called Pack a Purse helps teen girls in foster care, homeless shelters and group homes. The program is accepting donated purses and items until December 9 th. The purses will be delivered before Christmas. Wayne Phillips and Lawanda Stewart stopped by Good Morning Maryland Saturday edition to discuss the program. For more information call 410-761-7300.

It goes without saying that everyone loves the holidays.  For just a few weeks out of the year, we’re encouraged to indulge – expected to eat more, drink more, and buy more.  As a result, we also throw away more.  Did you know that between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, Americans produce an estimated 25 percent more trash than any other time of the year? Between the discarded food and food packaging, shopping bags, wrapping paper, greeting cards, ribbons, bows, and boxes, the extra waste adds up to an additional 1 million tons of garbage per week for five weeks. …

You’ve been hibernating all winter – like a black bear, hunkered down with your head between your forepaws, awaiting the arrival of warmer days. Unfortunately, we humans don’t live in the wilderness, sleep for weeks among tree roots, or gain sustenance from our own bodies. Our homes are our sanctuaries, and during those dreary months of inactivity, they can become cluttered, dusty, and downright dirty. This spring, don’t get down if the shining sun reveals a dingy, disordered domicile. With these easy, environmentally-friendly cleaning tips, you’ll be surprised at how little effort it takes to get – and stay – organized.…

Can you ever really get caught up in this ever ending chore.  I remember growing up when clotheslines were a part of a washing routine.  There was absolutely nothing better than the sweet smell of sun dried clothing fresh off the clothes line.  In the old day, housewives took great pride on how neatly they could hang up clothing. My grandmother as did many found enjoyment in socializing with her neighbor as they hung out clothes to dry. In many newer neighborhoods–those governed by homeowners associations, it is against the rules to hang your laundry where neighbors can glimpse it. …

For most of us, summer just can’t get here fast enough. We eagerly await its arrival – three months of spectacular sunshine that those other seasons simply don’t produce. Summer is synonymous with vivacious vacations, patio parties, bustling barbecues and growing gardens. We understand – cleaning house might just be the last thing on your mind. But, even if that swimming pool is loudly calling your name, your home still deserves a little summer lovin’.With these simple tips from The Maids, you’ll be taking a dip in no time: Do the decks and driveways.

What better way to spend a scintillating summer evening then by hosting a memorable backyard bash? Of course, you’ll want to enjoy yourself, too. Keep it simple and prep your patio ahead of time, so you can spend more time at the soiree. First, make your place presentable and mow the lawn. Clean the pool, if you have one. Be sure you have enough seating. If you’re expecting a large crowd, buy or borrow some lawn chairs. Strategically place trash cans around the patio for easy clean-up. Don’t forget about the music, and get your sound system ready! If you’re…

“April showers bring May flowers” heralds the arrival of beautifully colored florets that many of us have been looking forward to all winter.  At the same time however many of these gorgeous blossoms are dangerous to pets. It’s wise for green-thumbed pet guardians to familiarize themselves with the varieties of toxic spring plants that are highly toxic to cats and dogs. The bulbs, flowers and leaves of daffodils contain an alkaloid called lycorine.  This alkaloid can trigger gastric symptoms such as diarrhea and vomiting.  More serious reactions to lycorine can range from heart problems and upper respiratory distress, and also must be…

There’s still plenty of summer left for entertaining. With the arrival of warmer temperatures comes an influx of unwanted guests into your home. One of the most common home invaders this time of year is ants. Only a small handful of ants insist on invading our homes in search of something tasty. Aiming to control them and prevent them from accessing your food is a better approach than seeking to completely eliminate them. Most of the things ants do are good for us and the environment including eating the larvae of fleas, spiders, bed bugs flies, silverfish and cloths moths.…

I remember my grandmother giving me a small garden space in the backyard and a packet of Cosmo seeds.  I was so elated with the results as the Cosmos grew into showy flowers attracting birds and beautiful butterflies. Getting children interested in flowers or plants is a good way to teach them to love nature.  Working in a garden, a child can experience the satisfaction that comes from caring for something overtime, while observing the cycle of life first hand.  Gardening gives children a chance to learn an important life skill, one that is overlooked in a standard curriculum.  Gardening…

Summer is the easiest season to entertain. Seasonal produce is abundant and nature does the decorating for you. Outdoor gatherings call for nature inspired, easy-to-assemble arrangements. Water plants become gorgeous centerpieces when placed in clear vessels. Purchase a supply of casual, festive melamine for summer parties. Buy a set of red plates and decorate with white and blue linens and other accents if your party has a patriotic theme. Opt for salads and grilled food in place of stews and casseroles. Colorful dishes create a festive mood. Keeping red wine in red ice buckets and white in white will avoid…

Did you know that Oregon was the first state to make Labor Day a holiday? It’s true and it happened back in February of 1887. Ironically, because Labor Day weekend is such a big shopping weekend, many retail workers actually work harder and longer hours than normal.

The Maids would like to contribute to your Labor Day weekend by helping you work less and play more and save money while doing it. We will help you work…

Most people have been through one of those awkward houseguest situations where a friend or family member arrives at your home, and you have to go on a rampage to find them a blanket, pillow and the bare minimum of things necessary to get them through the night.

Thanks for the call to follow up on my house cleaning. It was a wonderful 65th birthday present from my daughters. The crew you sent was great. I’ll contact you again before the holidays to schedule another house cleaning. Working with your company was a very positive experience. Thanks.

I love decorating my home for Fall.   I have found if I deep clean the rooms that I decorate with fall items, decorating for the holiday season is much easier.  The welcoming of a twig wreath decorated with berries and leaves is a must for my front door.  I love decorating my living room with Fall colored toss pillows.  Soy candles in cinnamon sets or apple add elements of nature’s fall bounty throughout my common living areas.  Fall print dish towels and matching pot holders, a fall themed table runner and a Fall scatter rug are placed on the floor…
