Although Merry Maids was originally launched in Nebraska in the USA in 1979, the company prides itself on having the local touch for its UK customers. It first appeared in the UK in 1990 and the Merry Maids team now cleans more than 300,000 homes across the world having become one of the world’s leading domestic cleaning companies.
Merry Maids, now part of the ServiceMaster family, offers customer cleaning services which can be part of a bespoke package or a one-off clean. Customers who book a regular home cleaning service will find their rooms are deep cleaned on a rotational basis so there’s no need for them to carry out a spring clean.
A typical Merry Maids clean usually includes dusting, vacuuming, mopping, emptying waste paper baskets, and cleaning the bathroom and kitchen including surfaces, cupboards and white goods.
Customer can choose to book Merry Maids as frequently as they want – whether that’s weekly, fortnightly or every three or four weeks. The company also carries out spring cleans which can include washing walls, cleaning brass and silver, cleaning the inside of windows and cleaning out kitchen cupboards.
Although the company is run from a national office, regional offices are run by local people who take pride in taking care of the homes of their local community.
