Professionally Speaking: MaidPro -- Premium House Cleaning
The Forum • August 8, 2001
Premium products and services are nothing new. Starbucks did it for coffee. Lexus did it for the automobile. Now, MaidPro has it for house cleaning. What began in a tiny store front office in Boston, Massachusetts' historic Beacon Hill is taking hold throughout the nation and is now in Greater West Palm Beach. "For years, home cleaning companies have tried to provide premium services but have never been able to maintain the consistency," says Fran Vecchio, President of the local MaidPro office. Only four years ago MaidPro had one office. The company now services 180 cities in 10 states.
It only takes a minute to notice that even the MaidPro office is not like any other cleaning service. Andy Berkowitz, who is Vice President in charge of operations, says "MaidPro's environment really helps get our staff off to a great start. We look for people who love to clean. And, with better than average starting salary, flexible hours and other employee benefits, we can get the best people possible. We even have a MaidPro University. Every Service Provider goes through a curriculum that includes training on handling pets. Many people that have their homes cleaned never even think if the maids are trained to handle pets, keeping supplies out of harm's way, not spraying chemicals near pet food. These are the details MaidPro is known for."
"Most of MaidPro's customers have every week or every other week service; however, we can custom design a service plan to meet any need. To save money, some of our customers want only part of their homes cleaned while other customers have us come in every day. We really are flexible to the customers," says Jay Frankel, MaidPro's General Manager.
MaidPro can quote service estimates over the phone or in person. Estimates and information are available by calling either the local number, 561-684-6556, the toll-free service number, 1-877-MaidPro, or visiting the MaidPro website at www.maidpro.com
