The Handi Maids story
In 1983, Helen Swinter, a housewife in Glen Allen, VA wanted to earn extra income to pay for her son’s college tuition. Helen had the admiration of her peers for her attention to detail and knack for caring for her home. Using her talents, she started a detailed, residential cleaning service. Helen’s devotion to perfection became so in demand that within the first year, she found herself expanding her kitchen-table company to one of Richmond’s first cleaning services, Handi Maids, Inc. Shortly after opening its first office, Helen’s husband, Bruce, joined the company and together with their hard-working team, they cared for clients all over the Richmond Area. Now, after 30 years of hard work, Helen is taking a well-deserved retirement. Her son, Michael, a former police officer, and his wife, Hope, a former business and marketing professional, are delighted to take the company to new heights and standards with the help of their top-notch management team. Handi Maids is proud to work with a professional team of cleaners, each one bringing their own unique talents and contributions to our company and our cherished clients.
Michael and his family look forward to the next 30 years of offering a superior cleaning to RVA Area families while upholding the standards and traditions of this local, family-owned treasure.
