Hi, we’re Gina & Amelia, co-founders of Maid in JC.
We know you, weary PATH commuter. We, too, are downtown Jersey City residents ~ lured by the promise of a quick train ride to and from Manhattan, only to be tortured by push notifications: Estimated Time of Arrival = UNKNOWN.
Earlier and earlier we left for work. On those too-short mornings we had to set our priorities: clean hair, yes; herding dust bunnies, no. So the dance with local maid services began. One lost Amelia's house keys. Another showed up at Gina's place, filthy mops in hand. Clear communication with the staff was a challenge and our front doors revolved with different cleaning crews each week. - some trained and some, well, not so much.
It was around the 4th of July, Independence Day, when ~ sweating, seatless, somewhere between Grove and 33rd Streets ~ we were struck by Lady Liberty's plea: "Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free." We had cleaned our way through college to pay the rent - we could do it again, right? Only this time we'd operate a full-time business built on amazing cleaning and superior customer service.
So give us your streaky shower doors, your grime covered microwaves, your luxurious, cotton towels that smell more funky than fresh. We've traded our monthly PATH train passes for shelves of green cleaning solutions and a fleet of seriously powerful vacuum cleaners.
As Maid in JC welcomes new clients, we must pay tribute to our inspiration: So long, Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. We've reached our final destination, on the shores of Lady Liberty.
