The Maids’ solid cleaning process was made for this unprecedented time, using products, equipment, and procedures that make homes healthier and helps mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus, seasonal flu, and other illnesses.

Our EPA-Registered Disinfectant

We realize the importance of reducing germs and bacteria in your home. As part of The Maids’ cleaning process, we use a disinfectant that is effective against the Coronavirus and Influenza viruses, and is approved under the EPA’s Emerging Viral Pathogen Guidance.

The Maids Neutral Disinfectant is a hospital-grade, neutral pH disinfectant for hard surfaces. This formula is bactericidal, virucidal, fungicidal and mildewstatic. The cleaner is effective against Coronavirus, Influenza, HIV-1, MRSA and many other pathogens. The disinfectant is also listed by The Center for Biocide Chemistries as appropriate to use against COVID-19.

Teams sanitize and disinfect “high-touch” surfaces and areas throughout your home during all cleans. Additionally, The Maids’ vacuums are 99.9% effective at capturing particles, including bacteria, mold, pet dander, pollen, and dust mites from soft surfaces like carpets, rugs and upholstery.

What You Can Do

Follow these tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help prevent the spread of the seasonal flu and respiratory diseases like Coronavirus.

Keep in mind, many viruses can live on hard surfaces for 48-72 hours, so between visits, disinfect “high-touch” surfaces regularly using a household disinfectant.

If Someone in Your House Has Been Sick

If someone is sick or has been sick in your home, please notify our office in advance of your service so our team members can take appropriate safety measures.
