Custom Maid Celebrates 30th Anniversary Focusing Entirely on Homes and Apartments

Coupons being offered to the community via to demonstrate how affordable maid service can be


Virginia Beach, VA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/13/2015 -- According to a survey released by the Center for American Progress, nearly half of all families with children were headed by two working parents, and over 25% were headed by a single parent. While this statistic may be revealing on a number of different fronts, Susan Helms, spokesperson for Custom Maid (, a residential house cleaning company servicing the Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Norfolk Virginia areas, revealed with the number of homes they clean, by far, the majority are for families with both parents working. Says Helms, "We are seeing an increasing amount of work from families who want to spend the little time they have together doing fun activities with their children, not cleaning the house."

A study released recently by the National Sleep Foundation revealed the average employed American works 46 hours a week with 38% of the respondents admitting they work more than 50 hours a week. Furthermore, with the increasing number of at-home workers stating they work more overtime than they ever did as traditional workers, it's no wonder house cleaning services are in great demand. Helms concurs, stating, "Perhaps it's the lure of the beach nearby, or maybe it's just the urge to spend more quality time as a family, but for many parents, cleaning the house has become a burden and they would simply rather have it done by a team of professionals."

Celebrating their 30th year in business and over a quarter of a million homes cleaned, this women-owned business has earned the prestigious ARCSI accreditation for its house cleaning services, completing tasks such as cleaning bathrooms, kitchens and dusting and vacuuming on every visit. Helms says they've seen a lot of changes in the last 30 years. "Back in 1985 when we started, there was very little mention of the types of products we used. Now, however, our products are primarily made by Ecolab and are safe, effective and environmentally friendly. Our customers find this very reassuring."

To give back to the community on their anniversary, Custom Maid has launched a series of online coupons to aid homeowners and apartment dwellers in the financial commitment to home cleaning. Explains Helms, "Many people have the mistaken impression that maid services are only for the very rich, but these days, that couldn't be further from the truth. At our website, we have made available coupons to those who commit to weekly or bi-weekly services as well as those who provide us with referrals. Additionally, we will now honor all competitors coupons, as well."
