Why Homeowners Use St. Pete’s Maids Vs Franchise Cleaning Companies

Comparing St. Pete’s Maids vs franchise companies, like Molly Maids & Merry Maids, St. Pete’s Maids makes sure you’re taken care of. You will find there are a few things that make us better than your typical franchise home cleaning service. But hey, don’t just take our word for it. Even our customers agree.

Plant against gray wall

No Extra Work Beforehand

We seek to take as much of the housework of your to-do list as we possibly can. Yes, that means, unlike some of the famous franchise companies, we will even organize shelves and bedside tables. You shouldn’t have to clean before your cleaning company shows up.

I LOVE this service! I pay maybe $10 more for St. Pete’s than I did for Merry Maids and they do 10x better of a job. They organize shelves and bedside tables after they wipe them down, they add little flourishes like putting things on the counter in size order and folding the toilet paper all cute. That, or course, is in addition to a sparkling clean of all your surfaces. I also appreciate that they come at the same time every time, so no guessing when to wait for them to show up. AND AND they really do tidy up for you if you didn’t beforehand. I try to keep my place pretty tidy, but as a solo parent of a toddler, sometimes I leave things out! They’ll pick up before cleaning, which is a true lifesaver. Honestly, if you need excellent, reliable cleaners, look no further.

Easy & Convenient Booking and Scheduling.

From our convenient online booking to our responsive support staff, you can book a clean in minutes. No more waiting around days for a quote and then weeks to get into a cleaning company’s schedule. Our technology beats out most franchise companies.

We’ve used St. Pete’s Maids now for a few months and we’re very happy. The website is so easy to use when scheduling an appointment and every time they come to clean it has been very thorough! Highly recommended!!

Active Ownership.

Unlike most franchise company owners, who are mostly passive investors, our owner is active in the business. Alexis is passionate about the residential house cleaning business and taking care of homeowners like you. She has a heart for service and doing the things that need to be done but few care to do.

I have been using St. Pete’s Maids for a year now and I could not be more pleased. The owner of the business is excellent to work with and she has an amazing staff. I appreciate their attention to detail, the care and respect they give to my home and the excellent work they do. I highly recommend St. Pete’s Maids.

We’re Responsive & Great Communicators.

I think we will let our customers speak for us.

Your Money Stays Local.

As an independent maid service company, we don’t have any royalties that we need to pay to a franchisor in Texas. That means we can keep the money local and build our community and economy. From purchasing local to our St. Pete’s Maids Cares Program, which helps foster youth in our community, we keep the money in Michigan.

What a great company! Alexis and her team do an outstanding job and are great communicators. We were using one of the well-known companies and were never happy with the job they did. So we thought we’d give someone new a chance to see if there was any difference. There definitely was. St. Pete’s staff took their time to make sure every surface was cleaned in a house originally built in 1890. Just as importantly, Alexis makes sure we’re always kept informed of when we’re scheduled and follows up after to make sure everything went well. I can’t recommend St. Pete’s enough.

We Take An Extra Step & Add Personal Touches.

Big franchise companies can be too stiff and corporate-y. They lack the Main-Street Feel. At St. Pete’s Maids, we are large enough to support you and your needs, but not so big that we have lost sight of making sure you’re appreciated. We make sure to express our gratitude to our customers. You’re more than a customer to us. You’re a friend. You’re family.

We had tried molly maids and merry maids and had bad experiences with both. Finding St. Pete’s has been a huge relief as their work was amazing! The communication via email and text has been excellent and the attention to detail with personal touches are greatly appreciated. It also meant the world to us that they are pet friendly and we didn’t need to crate the dog during the day.

Love St. Pete’s Maids!!! We use to use a different cleaning company, but very happy we switched. They do a thorough clean and sometimes leave little gifts after cleanings :). Always on time and very professional. Would highly recommend!

Emily Huff


We’ve been customers for about 2 months and are very satisfied. It’s the little things – they came and put a wreath on our door and have left us small gifts. And the bigger things – they arrive on time, take feedback well, improve their service if you have an issue, and as others have mentioned have convenient payment options. Alexis responds quickly which is a HUGE plus and an advantage over nearly every other service provider I’ve worked with in Lansing. Would highly recommend.

Andria Hess


We’ve been very pleased with the quality of cleaning done by St Pete’s Maids. Alexis is really easy to work with, accommodating, and responds quickly to inquiries. We were disappointed by other cleaning companies that we tried prior to St. Pete’s. We are very glad we switched!
