Maid in the Shade began doing business in 1988. With a dream and our desire to be successful businesswomen, we set out to become Houston’s very best cleaning service.

We incorporated everything we learned about professional house cleaning services into an intense training program for all of our cleaning associates.

Hard work and dedication from all our Maid in the Shade team has resulted in steady growth. Our competent staff now services over 10,000 jobs around Houston every year!
