For Labor Day, Get Your Home Professionally Cleaned — and Support a Living-Wage Company

Photo taken pre-COVID. All cleaning professionals wear masks while in your home.

Believe it or not, Labor Day is just around the corner, marking the unofficial end of summer.

Whether you have plans to travel, host family and friends, or just want to decompress amid the back-to-school chaos, get your home professionally cleaned ahead of the three-day respite.

And Well Paid Maids, based in the D.C. area, is here to help.

Well Paid Maids isn’t your typical cleaning company. It’s committed to paying its workers a living wage of at least $20 an hour or more. Even more: Cleaners are employees — not contractors — meaning they get benefits like health, dental and vision insurance; 22 paid days off a year; and 100% employer-paid commuting costs.

What better way to honor our country’s workers than to support a company that pays fair, livable wages?

It also uses healthy and sustainable cleaning products, rated “low concern” or “lowest concern” by the Environmental Working Group.

So whether you want to return to a clean home after vacation or host your family and friends for the weekend, book your summer cleaning today before spaces fill up. It takes less than 60 seconds!
