For the Maid Perfect team, cleaning a home is not only about removing ceiling cobwebs and wiping down countertops, but also about creating a streamlined and stress-free experience along the way. Whether sweeping, sanitizing, dusting or vacuuming, Maid Perfect reaches every corner to maintain a fresh and tidy home.
“We dust everything, left to right, top to bottom,” explains Drew Freemantle, co-owner of Maid Perfect. “We sanitize all the hotspots in the house, like door handles and switch plates. Commonly touched areas in the house. Anything that makes it easier for the client. Also, things like little cobwebs up to the ceiling. We pay attention to those types of details.”
And now, more than ever, the Maid Perfect team is dedicated to providing a sanitized home during the COVID-19 pandemic. To ensure the safety of each client, Maid Perfect has instituted new protocols to help keep clients and employees healthy.
“We sanitize all our equipment before any client,” says Freemantle. “We wear masks, we wear gloves and have our temperatures taken daily. We do a lot of work in Panorama, which is a retirement community, so we understand that we have to be really safe.”
Take a Break While They Clean
When a duo of Maid Perfect cleaners arrives to work on a client’s home, Maid Perfect encourages clients to take some time for a fun socially-distanced activity during the cleaning process. Whether a day out in nature, or touring the local farmers market, Maid Perfect clients can enjoy an afternoon exploring Thurston County before returning to a spotless home. According to Freemantle, the average house takes about two to three hours to clean, leaving time for a visit to many South Sound attractions.

With over three miles of wooded trails that wind down to Burfoot’s shoreline, park guests are rewarded with unobscured views of Budd Inlet at the trail’s end.
Now more than ever, Freemantle and the Maid Perfect team understand how important it is to take time for relaxation and recreation. While Maid Perfect takes care of all home cleaning needs, Freemantle encourages clients to focus on spending quality time with loved ones.
“It takes us two or three hours to clean the house,” explains Freemantle. “But, if you were to clean your own house just by yourself, you’re talking at least four hours. This is something that we are happy do and we do it every single day.”
