Join us in our quest: Let us take dirt off your hands.
Our maid service and cleaning company began with a simple need . . . we had to have our home cleaned.
When we personally experienced the high priced rates with low quality service, we decided to act. And First Choice Maids was born!
Some of the national franchise firms we tried were on time and courteous, but the crews they dispatched were teenagers with their first job, no experience, and just wanting to get in and out as fast as possible. Other firms couldn't speak English, so communicating needs was a true challenge. Several firms had no regard for timeliness - either showing up hours early, hours late, or even the day after the appointment was scheduled! And once the cleaning was done, very few actually did a superb job - seemed there was always something they missed, or didn't spend enough time on to truly make it spotless.
The shortcomings of these cleaning service providers built the foundation of success that First Choice Maids still employs today:
- Be on-time, friendly, and courteous
- Excellent communication to know wants and needs
- Clean the home as thorough as if it was ours
- Don't over-schedule appointments
- Hire only hard working and highly experienced personnel with impeccable references
- Be competitively priced and affordable
- "Good-Enough" is never good enough. Be the Best!
Many of our customers have unfortunately journeyed down the same path trying different cleaning firms! We hear their horror stories on a weekly basis. If this may be you, don't hesitate to call us, or get an on-line quote - and be prepared to join the rest of our long-term clients that value the highest quality cleaning services found throughout Santa Barbara!
Our Business Model
Most maid service and cleaning firms fall into one of two categories: locally owned and operated franchised providers, or independent local individuals, with each model having their pros and cons.
A franchised firm has name recognition, but pricing may be higher to support the franchise, and quality of service is totally
dependent upon the franchise. An independent provider usually offers lower pricing than franchises, but may not possess all required permits and licenses, training, insurance, or contractor background and verification capabilities.
First Choice Maids is in the 'sweet spot' between these two extremes - all the advantages of a nationwide corporation, with the competitive pricing and quality of service provided by independent firms!
We are incorporated in the State of Delaware as a totally owned and operated division under Pacifica Cleaning Group. Our contractors are thoroughly background checked and trained. A highly competitive and fair price combined with consistent service quality is maintained by having First Choice Maids owners involved in each and every cleaning job, no matter how big or small.
