After founding Bishop Building Services, a janitorial company, Daniel J. Bishop brought his cleaning business experience to the residential arena with The Maids in 1979.
Four-person cleaning teams arrive at clients' homes in the company's distinctive yellow cars to dust, vacuum and clean kitchens and bathrooms using the company's 22-Step Healthy Touch Deep Cleaning System.
Since its founding in 1979 by Daniel J. Bishop, The Maids has grown to be one of the largest domestic cleaning companies throughout the U.S. and Canada. We are dedicated to providing you and your family with state-of-the-art home cleaning service options and continue to lead by example, leaving other cleaning companies scrambling to offer similar services.
