These seasons also bring lots of outdoor air inside and with it dust, pollen and allergens. The Maids of Wilmington is a residential cleaning business with professionals aimed at getting your house sparkling clean. The Maids franchise utilizes a deep cleaning process and consists of a four person team to divide the cleaning functions and make homes sparkle.

Andrea Caro is a co-owner with her husband John in The Maids of Wilmington which has been in business since 2013.  Andrea invested in the franchise as she wanted to build a business that she is proud of while helping families have access to convenient and time-saving services. Her goal is to help families keep their homes clean and free up their busy schedules. As a result of this goal, Andrea and John were awarded one of the highest revenue growth in 2022 by The Maids International. The Maids International is the franchisor of the home service brand “The Maids.” The Maids is the quality leader among house cleaning services in the industry, with franchise and company-owned locations in over 40 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces.

Andrea has a professional background in Organizational Change Management and provides leadership, mentoring and direction to business leaders on how to influence behavior. She believes in enabling organizations to collaborate and foster diverse and inclusive work environments which is her approach with The Maids. She has a Masters degree in Education and Bachelors degree in Spanish and Sociology with a minor in psychology both from Virginia Tech. She is a native of Chile and bilingual and has found her background to be invaluable to helping mentor the staff of The Maids.

The Maids International approach divides the cleaning functions into kitchens, baths, vacuuming and dusting from top to bottom. The staff removes buildup from kitchen and baths and pays special attention to high touch areas where families gather and spend most of their time together. Andrea ensures that the cleaning products are environmentally friendly and safe for families and pets.

It’s important to Andrea to offer flexible services year round so The Maids has seasonal, regular maintenance or just one time deep cleans. There are no contracts required and cleanings can be set up on a recurring day and time frame. In addition, The Maids extends promotional cleanings throughout the year  which can be extended to friends and families. We will customize cleaning services to meet your family’s needs and make your house sparkle.

Giving back to the community is also important to Andrea and John as business owners. The Maids partners with Bread For Life, an all volunteer organization in Wilmington, which focuses on helping seniors in the community to enhance their health and well being. The Maids provides free cleaning services to seniors in need. In addition, The Maids Wilmington franchise supports the Maid to Care non-profit which supplies resources to employees who have financial emergencies.
