Dear ARLnow readers,
This winter has been rough.
Due to Omicron, many of our family, friends and neighbors got sick, and our hospitals were filled to capacity. And by overlapping with the holiday season, I know that many of us missed out on doing things we wanted to do and seeing people we wanted to see.
Thankfully, according to a recent NPR segment, it looks like we are turning a corner. In fact, according to the New York Times’ tracker for the District of Columbia, pictured below, cases are down 78% in the last two weeks. As case counts decrease as rapidly as they ascended, many of us are thinking through what we feel comfortable doing now and how to best enjoy our lives again.
If one thing you’ve been missing is your regular home cleaning, Well-Paid Maids is here for you and still doing everything in our power to be as COVID-safe as possible. Our cleaners are still wearing masks to every job, we are still asking customers to be masked when sharing space with them, and our staff is still 100% fully vaccinated with a rolling booster mandate in effect as cleaners become eligible.
And, of course, we are still the D.C. area’s only living-wage home cleaning service. Our vaccinated, boosted and masked staff make at least $20/hour and receive a full benefits package including 22 paid days off, health, dental, and vision insurance, and 100% employer-paid commuting.
If you’re interested in doing business with a cleaning company that takes COVID seriously and matches your values, please visit our website to book a cleaning today. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]. We look forward to serving you soon!
