The Maids Cleans up North Houston

Rick and Michele Orlando recently opened The Maids, a residential cleaning franchise that specializes in cleaning for health. The new franchise is located at 5750 North Sam Houston Parkway East, Suite 112 in Houston, Texas and provides service to the communities of Atascocita, Fall Creek, Kingwood, Humble, Oakhurst and Summerwood.

Before purchasing a The Maids franchise, Rick worked as a CPA for 30 years, while Michele worked as a stay-at-home mom to raise their three children.  “We’ve always wanted to be in business for ourselves,” shares Michele. “We chose The Maids because it’s an established company and a leader in the cleaning industry.”

The Orlandos will focus on providing the best possible cleaning service by continually training their staff and paying special attention to customer concerns. “We will provide the best and most consistent training in the industry to our employees,” explains Rick.

 “We want to offer a bright, cheery office environment,” adds Michele. “And, we’d like to implement incentive programs for everyone that works for us.”

In preparation of the grand opening, The Orlandos spent nearly two weeks completing an extensive administrative and technical training program at The Maids’ corporate headquarters in Omaha, Neb.  Focused on unparalleled service and quality, The Maids is the only residential cleaning franchise to clean for health using an exclusive 22-Step Healthy Touch® Deep Cleaning System. This unique cleaning method provides customers with cleaner, healthier homes through the use of 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 emblazoned with The Maids logo. The Maids’ exclusive team approach provides the most efficient, comprehensive housecleaning in the industry. Each team has a supervisor who ensures that each team meets The Maids’ high standards of quality and excellence.  As added peace of mind, The Maids’ team members are bonded and insured and all services are backed by a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee.
