Best cleaning service 2013: Merry Maids

Merry Maids


Charlottesville’s Earthly Cleaning

Unless you’re talking about dust bunnies, sometimes bigger really is better: Merry Maids operates 1,351 franchises and was voted No. 1 Residential Cleaning Service in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500. The company cleans apartments, too! With less than a year in business, owner Lucille Weakley takes second place with Charlottesville’s Earthly Cleaning. Though, she isn’t short on experience: She was a partner and operational manager for One Clean World (once a top performer in this category before shuttering last year), and holds licenses in smoke and water restoration, textile and upholstery cleaning, as well as odor damage.
