In 1979, President Daniel J. Bishop, a self-made entrepreneurial success before the age of 21 with his janitorial company, Bishop Building Services, founded The Maids Home Services in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. With a four-person cleaning team and recognizable yellow company car, his cleaning teams quickly went national when he began franchising his house cleaning business one year later.
Before starting The Maids Home Services, Bishop researched the cleaning process. Through time and motion studies, his research determined that the most efficient way to clean a home is in teams. By training each of his teams to clean according to a system based on four primary functions: dusting, bathroom cleaning, kitchen cleaning and vacuuming, his teams were able to clean quickly and efficiently.
In 1995, The Maids Home Services became the first residential cleaning company to clean for health. This was accomplished by using only environmentally-preferable cleaning products and a state-of-the-art back pack vacuum. The vacuum was developed especially for The Maids Home Services. This resulted in the development of our unique 22-Step Healthy Touch
