A Maids House Cleaning Franchise is More Than Just a Business

Here at The Maids, our cleaning franchises are more than just a business for our hundreds of franchisees. We designed our business model to give you a proven path to financial security with a successful cleaning business that also gives back to the communities you serve. From company-wide community outreach programs to a range of individual initiatives created by our franchisees, we are all committed to giving back to the communities that allow us to experience continued growth. 

Since 2006, The Maids has partnered with Cleaning for a Reason, a nonprofit organization serving residents of the United States and Canada, to make the lives of female cancer patients a little easier with free residential cleaning. Cleaning for a Reason partners with local maid services to offer house cleaning to women undergoing cancer treatment and The Maids cleaning service franchises have collectively donated almost 4,000 house cleanings valued at more than $700,000.
