2021 – What does it mean for Merry Maids?

If you are thinking about joining our brand this year, but have concerns over the current situation and the effect that it may have, this blog is for you.

In 2020, the Merry Maids franchise became stronger as it adapted to the ‘new normal’ and as such, pushed the business model to new heights. All businesses found their feet to remain open safelywhen allowed, following government guidelines to provide essential domestic cleaning services to those who rely upon it.

As we enter in to the third national lockdown, working in people’s homes, in particular, providing domestic cleaning services is permitted. The domestic cleaning service has been recognised as a safe, hygienic and essential service to be provided inside the home.

We expect more and more individuals to turn to domestic cleaning companies to ensure that their home cleaning is undertaken thoroughly to guarantee the home is a safe and hygienic place to be whilst advised to ‘stay home’. Not only this, families are under more and more pressure to home-school, work from home and carry out other household duties, as such, cleaning cannot possibly be done as well in the limited time remaining in the day. Thus, there becomes a need to hire a professional domestic cleaner to ensure that it not only gets done, but gets done effectively to protect the family.

Our online booking facility also reduces the number of visits to a customer’s property and the time spent within it, because the admin is done online and all that is left to do is for the cleaners to deliver cleaning services during the time slot chosen by the customer. No quotation visit required!

Trust plays a huge part in an individual choosing a domestic cleaning company at the best of times, but now due to the risk involved with not taking the proper precautions, it has never been more important to choose a trusted, reliable and conscientious cleaning company.

As you will already know, Merry Maids is a global, well-established domestic cleaning company with over 40 years domestic cleaning experience in the UK and is known for providing professional one off and regular domestic cleaning services. Merry Maids is a name that individuals know and trust.

This year, like any other year, our support as a franchisor continues. Business owners will receive unlimited support in not only all of the necessary business disciplines required to operate a first-rate Merry Maids business, but also updates and guidance on the current and ongoing situation with regards to the pandemic. A sympathetic ear is also always available from a peer network of existing Merry Maids business owners.

With the added learnings and experiences from 2020 across a wide franchise network, the momentum is already there to build on 2020 and to make 2021 a better year.
