Domestic Cleaning Services – All year round!

When going in to the realms of business for yourself, it’s important to ensure that there is enough demand for the services that you wish to deliver. Not only for the time being, but for the season, the year and for the future. 

Merry Maids are a global domestic cleaning franchise, and have been established for almost forty years! This would suggest that based on our longevity, that the need domestic cleaning services isn’t going anywhere.

It’s fair to say that ‘Spring Cleaning’ is a common phrase and is easily misunderstood. Some researchers trace the origin of spring cleaning to the Iranian Nowruz, the Persian new year, which falls on the first day of spring. Iranians continue the practice of khooneh tekouni (literally “shaking the house”) just before the Persian new year. [Source Wikipedia]

We aren’t just busy in Spring, we are busy all year round. 


Did you know that our most popular cleaning service is Fortnightly? Our fortnightly customers enjoy a Merry Maids clean home all year round and have the option to top up in-between if they wish.

We also do plenty of one-off cleans, whether they are for before a special occasion, after a special occasion, due to illness, a new baby, moving in to/out of a home or just as a break. Our one-off cleans fit in neatly around our regular cleaning customers and often persuade our one-off customers to have us back regularly.

The demand is certainly there, and with our proven business model, established brand and unrivalled support, you have the perfect recipe to grow your own successful Merry Maids domestic cleaning franchise.
