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.
