THE MAIDS Cleans up Downingtown

Joe and Christine Lagore of Glenmoore, Pa., recently opened THE MAIDS Home Services, a residential cleaning franchise that specializes in cleaning for health. The new franchise is located at 130 E. Lancaster Ave, 2nd Floor, in Downingtown and will serve the residents of Paoli, Coatesville, Downingtown, Exton, Glenmoore, Kennett Square, Malvern, Frazer, Thorndale, West Chester and Chester Springs, Pa.

Joe will serve as the general manager and see to the day-to-day operations. Joe comes to THE MAIDS with an existing background of franchise ownership as he already owns a Hollywood Tans franchise in Kennett Square. His knowledge of franchising will be valuable as he takes on this new business adventure. He also boasts a background in information technology and sales.

“Already in the franchising business, I wanted to open another franchise that’s based on a solid foundation,” said Joe. “I knew that with THE MAIDS’ years of experience and unbeatable cleaning regiment, I was heading into the right business. Upholding THE MAIDS’ reputation, we will set the highest standards and provide exceptional customer service.”

In preparation of their grand opening, Joe, along with Field Manager Nicole McCormick, spent nearly two weeks completing an extensive administrative and technical training program at THE MAIDS Home Services’ corporate headquarters in Omaha, Neb. THE MAIDS Home Services is the only residential cleaning franchise to clean for health using the company’s exclusive 22-Step Healthy Touch® Deep Cleaning System. This unique cleaning method provides customers with cleaner, healthier homes through using environmentally-preferable cleaning products and state-of-the-art equipment, including their patented Back Pack Vacs with HEPA filtration that can capture up to 99 percent of all dust, allergens, bacteria, pet dander, pollen and other pollutants.

THE MAIDS employs professionally uniformed and trained four-member cleaning teams who arrive at customers’ homes in signature yellow cars. THE MAIDS’ exclusive team approach provides the most efficient, comprehensive housecleaning in the industry. Each team is supervised by a team leader, who ensures the home is cleaned to THE MAIDS Home Services’ high standards of quality and excellence. As added peace of mind, THE MAIDS Home Services’ team members are bonded and insured and all services are backed by a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee.
