In 1979, Daniel J. Bishop, a self-made entrepreneurial success before the age of 21 with his janitorial company, Bishop Building Services, founded The Maids in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. The Maids focused on bringing residential deep cleaning to everyone. With four-person cleaning teams and a recognizable yellow company car, Bishop’s business quickly went national as he began franchising his residential cleaning company one year later. Today, The Maids offers deep cleaning services to over 90 major U.S. and Canadian cities.
Efficient Approach Through Team Cleaning
Before starting The Maids, Bishop researched the cleaning process. Through time and motion studies, his research determined that the most efficient way to clean a home and office is through team cleaning. Bishop trained each member of his home cleaning company to clean with a system based on four primary functions:
Through this regimented home cleaning system, The Maids home cleaning teams were able to clean quickly and efficiently.
In 1995, The Maids became the first home cleaning business to clean for health. This was accomplished by using environmentally preferable cleaning products and a state-of-the-art back pack vacuum. The vacuum was developed especially for The Maids. This resulted in the development of our unique 22-Step Healthy Touch® Deep Cleaning System, which set new standards for quality deep cleaning and revolutionized the industry.
With over a quarter of a century of experience, The Maids continues to research the best ways to serve its customers. We continue to stay at the forefront of the home and office services industry.
