Two Maids & A Mop Presents Cleaning Business Television!

More than a ten years ago, Ron Holt hired two employees and opened his doors to residents in the panhandle of northwest Florida. Since then, the business has grown from its humble roots into one of the industry’s most admired brands; with dozens of locations spanning across five southeastern US states.

“I can still remember sitting inside my tiny little office. Those were some scary days because everything was so new to me,” said Ron Holt, CEO and Founder of Two Maids & A Mop. “I had to learn how to hire, how to train and how to get the phone to ring all on my own. It wasn’t easy and it took me several years to figure it out.”

Fortunately, he had the benefit of time because it took him nearly two years before his new business was able to pay all of its bills on a regular basis. Of course, most small business owners can’t sustain operations for that long since many are bootstrapped operations. So Ron decided to offer free, practical advice for people getting started in the residential cleaning industry by launching the cleaning industry’s first-ever online television station. The online television station is called

“I enjoy the game of business so offering free advice to people interested in running a cleaning business comes natural for me,” said Holt. “We’re going to talk about some basic issues such as effective house cleaning tips but we’ll also dig deep and discuss difficult issues such as legal liability, insurance requirements and payroll management. Consider the TV station a weekly seminar that will save both time and money for a cleaning business owner.”

Each episode is approximately 20 minutes long and is co-hosted by the Vice-President of Operations at Two Maids & A Mop, David Luke. Both Ron and David expect to bring in multiple surprise guests to keep the show fresh and entertaining. Weekly episodes will be aired live every Wednesday morning at 10 AM EST.

“We employ more than 150 people today and clean more than 300 homes per day. That’s a long way from our first day of just two employees and two customers. We hope that we’re able to teach someone how to avoid costly mistakes and how to create a dominant cleaning business for any market across the country,” said Holt.

Last year, Two Maids & A Mop was recognized by Inc. Magazine as the fastest growing cleaning company in America. And this year, the company announced an aggressive plan to begin providing immediate franchise opportunities across all 48 states. The company has already sold several territories and at least five new locations are expected to open this year.

Ron is thankful that he was able to endure the difficult early days more than eleven years ago. “Times are good today and I’m fortunate to have been able to endure everything from natural disasters to economic downturns,” said Holt. The road to financial success for a cleaning business is windy, bumpy and crowded. My hope is that will create more start-up success stories within the cleaning industry!”

New episodes are uploaded every Wednesday morning so make sure to check it out every week. You can visit by clicking here: Start Your Own Maid Service

How Small Gestures Can Make A Big Difference

Check out this post from one of the most energetic, most successful managers inside our company........

"Sometimes we forget how far a small gesture can carry us. I stopped in to do a quality check for a team today, and took a minute to play the piano for one of our elderly clients that has been ill lately. Her face lit up as she thanked me and said nobody has played her piano in years! We don't just clean houses at Two Maids & a Mop, we provide a service and make a small difference in the lives we touch! Today reminded me to take a moment and remember the impact we can have on each person we meet along the way!"  your humbled manager in Nashville, TN, LA Martin

Here's the cool thing! No one told LA to do this and no one expected LA to play the piano. But she did it and I am sooo proud of her. She's the perfect example of what we mean when we say that Two Maids & A Mop is not just another cleaning company. Thank you LA for going the extra mile and caring so much about this company & this customer!!!

TwoMaids Promotes Another Superstar!!

Michelle Lightford - our superstar Assistant Manager in Huntsville - is headed off to run our newest location in Greensboro, NC. Yesterday, we held a going away party for her at a local restaurant. Check out Michelle as she tries to stay on the mechanical bull!!!

Michelle is the perfect example of how Two Maids & A Mop can make dreams come true! Michelle was hired just over eight months ago to simply clean homes throughout the Huntsville, AL area. Since her hiring, she has proven that she's not only a hard worker - but she's also a very ambitious, very driven person too. Michelle has never once sulked, she's never once arrived late for work & I've never once witnessed anything other than a big smile from Michelle. I can't wait to see where Michelle takes the Greensboro office and I can't wait to see how Michelle's hard work and determination correlates into personal success for herself as well. Two Maids & A Mop was extremely lucky to find a person the caliber of Michelle Lightford!! 

Congratulations Michelle!!
