Arlington, VA

Dear ARLnow,

Like many of you, I moved to the DC area because I wanted a career through which I could express my values. Also like many of you, that career left me with little free time and a messy apartment.

Looking for a maid service, I picked some company with a snazzy website, and the cleaner they sent was great. But as I read more about the cleaning industry, I became concerned that the hard-working people cleaning my home weren’t being treated fairly. And when I reached out to the company directly about their wages, they refused to give me an answer. That didn’t sit well with me, so I stopped using the service.

No one who works full-time should live in poverty. That’s why I started Well-Paid Maids, the DC area’s first and only living-wage home cleaning service.

We deliver high-quality service at affordable rates, but our maids are paid a starting wage of $16/hour and receive a full benefits package. To learn more about our approach, check out our recent profile in the Washington Post.

You can book a cleaning today, and help us prove that a living-wage business can succeed in one of the country’s lowest-paying industries.

We serve all of Northern Virginia inside the Beltway.
