It’s about YOU. Every time.
House cleaning services
you can TRUST.
Committed to GREEN cleaning
for health.


Only one maid service sells more than cleaning: we offer freedom and peace of mind.

What can Maid Brigade do for you?  More than wash your windows, clean your floors and scrub your toilets!  Any maid service can perform these tasks—but Maid Brigade customers trust our maid service to maintain a clean and healthy home through consistent, thorough green cleaning so you don’t even have to think about it!

Maid Brigade is the way to
put more time into your day!

Choosing the right maid service is really a quality of life decision.   It may not be obvious at first, but independent house cleaning or inferior maid services require you to micromanage. With other home cleaning services you’ll find yourself coordinating details, training them, stocking the supplies and even washing the dirty cleaning cloths.  That takes valuable time and energy – time you don’t have!  Think about all the things you could accomplish if you didn’t spend three or four hours cleaning your home every week.

Maid Brigade takes care of everything, so you have the freedom to spend time doing the things that matter to you most, instead of house cleaning! Our customers trust us to provide superior quality cleaning service. Hire Maid Brigade and your life will become less hectic and less stressful, and even a little safer. With us, you can be sure your family is protected from health risks associated with traditional cleaning services.  You’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home is Green Clean Certified®, because it’s better for your health and better for the environment. And, of all the cleaning services out there, Maid Brigade is the only one that offers Green Clean Certified house cleaning.

We know you are completely capable of cleaning your own home, with marvelous results! But we also know that the real challenge with house cleaning is finding the time. We clean just like you would, if you had the time. When you hire Maid Brigade, you’ll get your Saturday morning back!

Join thousands of satisfied customers who say that Maid Brigade is not just a convenience, but a necessity! Most of our customers find that having Maid Brigade clean every two weeks keeps their homes beautifully clean and healthy, helping to minimize the amount of time spent on cleaning in between our visits. But, we also offer weekly, monthly and occasional cleaning services as well – whatever suits YOUR needs.

We frequently promote cleaning specials that our customers can redeem for extra savings! These offers vary by location, time of year and amount of savings. Visit your local Maid Brigade’s “Specials” page to see what savings on maid services are available just for you!
