What do their customers think?

 “Emilio C. – What a great team! I first came into contact with Dan Libby when he purchased a car from Pape Subaru. My fiance and I had recently moved into our new home and he explained to me that he ran The Maids franchise here in Maine. Sally personally came over to our home to give us an estimate to clean the house. We are very particular about keeping the house very clean. We have been with The Maids now for almost a year. We get the house cleaned once every two weeks and they have been a pleasure to deal with, not to mention, their team does a great job! ”

“Chew B.- We recently hired The Maids, (out of Portland Maine) to come to our home for a one time cleaning. Four wonderful workers arrived in a yellow Subaru complete with everything they required to perform their duties. They did everything as described in their scope of work. The workers were professional, friendly, had a sense of humor, and worked continually until the project was complete (no coffee breaks, no drama, no waiting around). They worked professionally as a team to minimize the time spent and maximize the results of their work. I am extremely impressed with their attitudes and knowledge of providing all services necessary to completely and professionally clean a home. ”
