House Cleaning Franchises

Maids by Trade is a Purple Forté brand

House cleaning franchises with options for business conversions. 


Maids by Trade’s founder

Fortino Barajas, owner and founder of Maids by Trade puts his house cleaning franchises available to new entrepreneurs. Fortino is a dedicated family man who started his cleaning service grass-roots style—from his garage in Portland, OR, in 1997. He believes a Maids by Trade franchise is the top choice for others wanting to run their own business. Maids by Trade changed Fortino’s life and he hopes it offers others the same opportunity.

An Opportunity for Entrepreneurs

Fortino believes in the importance of helping other entrepreneurs make their dreams come true by facilitating the ownership of locally-owned house cleaning franchises, rather than turning Maids by Trade into a massive corporate entity. This unique approach facilitates a great opportunity for new entrepreneurs and current business owners wanting to convert their business and get some relief in their daily operations. No matter the situation, cleaning businesses thrive with the Maids by Trade brand.


Everyone at Maids by Trade is a professional. Fortino has created training programs for the company’s new recruits—from safety, cleaning, sales, quality control, and others—all done at the company’s headquarters. He often provides training on eco-responsibility and keeps up-to-date on healthy cleaning practices as well as the latest on green technology and techniques.

5-Star reviews do matter

Maids by Trade prides itself in delivering 5-star cleaning services for those that need recurring service, deep cleanings, and the occasional on-call service appointment.

I've never had my house cleaned before, but decided to try it for my birthday. I am SO thrilled with how my house looks!!! The whole process, from getting a quote to coming home to a spotless house, was quick, professional, easy, and everyone is so friendly. Great work, very fairly priced. You just gained a loyal customer!

Maids by Trade has been cleaning our home for a year now, and I could not be happier with their service. Our team (Team 10!!) is the best. They are cheerful and completely professional - but even more importantly, they are kind and sweet with my baby and always accommodate her nap schedule, working in other parts of the house or being extra quiet when she's sleeping. The team is very considerate about our space, and I look forward to their visits. I totally trust them. Maids by Trade has great customer service as well and I tell all my friends to use them!

I really feel happy about my choice in home cleaning companies with Maids By Trade. The client experience feels like you are the guest being welcomed into the Maids By Trade extended family every time our cleaning personnel come to our home. Diego and Rita, Irma and Rocio; deep cleanings with remarkable efficiency, all showing great care and attention to detail In their work. They've become welcome members of our household from their weekly visits. We have been customers for 2 or 3 years and counting, and when we moved last year, we brought them with us to our new home without question.

I am happy to share about my experience with Maids by Trade.I procrastinated, and TWO DAYS BEFORE my holiday guests arrived, I decided that my teens and I were not going to do a marathon fight to get the house clean. I submitted my information online and it was very easy and they responded immediately. This process deserves 6 stars, in and of itself. They offered to arrive at 8:30 AM. Normally that would be a good thing. In our case, we were still "picking up" (aka throwing things into closets so they could clean!). So they gave me a later arrival time window which worked out perfectly. I observed them while cleaning. Even the laundry room got the same attention that the living room got. Every blessed knick knack was picked up, dusted, and dusted around-- even in my son's room, to his shock. Our large bathrooms were sparkling. The towels were folded prettily -- several nice touches. We were all extremely happy.My family also said they couldn't believe how much better our house looked, and suggested these folks need to come back every month. So, we're winning! I wish I can get my house the way they clean it. I guess I’ll just leave it to them.
