Custom Maid is the definition of modern residential house cleaning services. No longer is the industry represented by an individual working out of the trunk of a car with an old vacuum and a broom. We study the most effective techniques for cleaning. Our staff is continually trained on the latest industry updates and standards. The products we use are professional grade and environmentally friendly.

ARCSI Accredited Member

We have been a member of ARCSI (The Association of Residential Cleaning Services International) since 2006. Our founder, Alison Palmer was the president of ARCSI for three years and served on the Board of Directors for nine years. ARCSI is the trade association for the residential cleaning industry and we attend their educational meetings twice a year to stay up to date with the most modern techniques, supplies and equipment available to the industry.

We are a proud member of the Hampton Roads community. We give back to that community that has been so good to us in many ways. Custom Maid is a long- time partner with Cleaning for a Reason.  This means that we provide free house cleaning to women who are undergoing treatment for cancer. Because of our efforts on behalf of Cleaning for a Reason, we won the Urban League of Hampton Roads Beacon of Hope Award.

We train our staff to clean according to the IICRC (The Institute for Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification) standards for house cleaning technicians.
