Hi, We're Regina and Amelia, co-founders of Maid in JC. We know you, weary PATH commuter. We, too, are downtown Jersey City residents who were lured by the promise of a quick and convenient train to and from Manhattan, only to be tortured by push notifications: Estimated Time of Arrival = UNKNOWN.
Earlier and earlier we left for work, and 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 Regina's place, filthy mops in hand. Clear communication with the staff was a challenge as our front doors revolved with different cleaning crews each week, even after the company's owners promised consistent teams.
It was around the 4th of July, Independence Day, when ~ sweating, seatless, somewhere between Grove Street and 33rd Street ~ 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, pumping housekeeping pros for their best tips and tricks. 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 fashion careers and monthly train passes for shelves of organic 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 finally reached our destination!
