Maid2Clean is a residual income management franchise serving the busy affluent masses of private householders in the domestic cleaning sector.
Our franchisees run an end-to-end management cleaning agency solution for their domestic clients by taking the hard work away from having to arrange their cleaning and ironing requirements.
Our primary services ensure that the cleaning clients receive a properly interviewed, vetted and insured cleaner alongside the provision of a replacement service if the cleaner becomes poorly, is on holiday etc.
We have 160 franchised areas providing work for some 14,500 domestic cleaners, servicing our clients on a weekly or ad-hoc basis. Founded in the UK in 1993, Maid2clean became a franchise in 2003 and has a presence in Ireland, Malta, Australia and Canada.

Maid2Clean Case studies
Dave Sharp & Carole Lillywhite
We had decided after very careful thought to go into business for ourselves, Dave had previously had his own business but always said if he went into business again it would be a franchise.
Having searched long and hard for a business opportunity that would give me the freedom from bosses and the independence to set my own income, I never dreamed I would find what I was looking for.
Mark Wilton and Keith Brunt
Keith and I started Maid2Clean Belfast in September 2005 and since then we have grown to 140 clients whilst predominantly operating the business on a part time basis.
My best pal Linda had asked me to attend a meeting with her and her husband Adrian, to look at yet another business opportunity, I made sure that there was no misunderstanding between us; I was not in any way interested in this opportunity. However I would be more than happy to pull it apart and ask the questions that she may not wish to.
Having spent 12 years bringing up children, the prospect of returning to employment was not an attractive one. Over a period of 3 months, my husband and I looked at just about every franchise available in the UK as well as a few established business that were up for sale.
After much thought I decided I wanted to purchase a cleaning franchise, having found Maid2Clean via the internet very easily contact was made with Elaine from there on every thing seemed to come together very quickly.
Swindon franchisee Karen Gwynne-Lyons and her husband had been looking into franchising for a while, really did their homework and discovered Maid2Clean.
For Ann Lewis, Maid2Clean franchisee for Cymru, discovering Maid2Clean came about entirely by accident…
Kevin and Beverly Keith
Like many people looking at franchising, Kevin & Beverly Keith were fed up with the daily grind of someone else receiving the rewards of their efforts, and wanted to be in a position to determine their own future.
