Merry Maid’s roots can be traced back to Omaha, Nebraska, where in 1979, the company was founded by Dallen Peterson. Fast-forwarding 9 years to 1988, Peterson’s company was purchased by ServiceMaster USA. 2 years on, in 1990 Merry Maids landed in the UK, bringing exceptional home cleaning services from across The Atlantic.
Over the years, the brand has become synonymous with exceptional service and the highest standard of cleaning. This is still the case today but with more of a focus on technological advancements too.
Our motto has always been “relax it’s done.” This has never been more true, as Merry Maids employ the latest in technology to make life quick, simple and straightforward for customers and business owners alike. Our brand, your business – the formula for success.
