Dear ARLnow,

The cleaning industry is a dirty business. Illegal practices are widespread and worker exploitation is normal. As businesses increasingly misclassify their employees as contractors, workers lose out on pay, benefits and legal protection.

Well-Paid Maids is changing that. We are the D.C. area’s first and only living-wage home cleaning service, where all employees make at least $17/hour and receive a full benefits package, including 22 paid days off, health, dental and vision insurance, 100% employer-paid short-term disability insurance, 100% employer-paid commuting costs, unemployment insurance and workers’ compensation insurance.

We are proud to support the living-wage movement and hope our company can serve as an example of what’s possible.

By creating an ethical alternative, we provide our customers with a cleaning service that matches their values. Not only is this the moral thing to do, it means we employ the happiest, hardest-working people in the business. Book an appointment today at and see the difference a living-wage makes.

You won’t regret it!
