The Maids, founded in 1979, has locations in more than 40 US states and three Canadian provinces.
The two brands have been working for several months collaborating on a unique partnership to bring Mr. Clean into home services, according to Procter & Gamble, which owns the Mr. Clean brand.
Through the co-brand partnership, P&G says consumers can have confidence selecting The Maids, a professional house cleaning service "certified" by Mr. Clean – a service that will meet their needs, budget and high expectations for a beautifully maintained home.
"We've spent decades building the Mr. Clean brand and we didn't want to trust it with just anyone," said Kevin Wenzel, associate brand director, North America Surface Care. "We did research into the brands in the home cleaning space and The Maids really stood out. The Maids were our number one choice to approach as a partner. We found The Maids has a great national presence, an outstanding brand and a dedication to quality service."
"The new license agreement with Mr. Clean allows us to bring some muscle to The Maids and expand our product mix," said Colin Bishop, president and CEO of The Maids International. "Through our research we found consumers have inherent trust and confidence in the Mr. Clean brand, and he's a highly recognized figure in cleaning. We couldn't be more excited to be partnering with such a well-known brand icon and Procter & Gamble."
