Quality Assurance

Our Home Care Associates concentrate on offering detailed cleaning in a professional manner. Your home is disinfected, cleaned and straightened – like a spring cleaning every time. Our Field and Training Managers make frequent, random visits to your home during service to ensure quality.


Our local, family-owned business has been serving the Richmond area since 1983. References are gladly furnished upon request. We perform background checks, drug screenings, reference checks and in-depth training before we add a Home Care Associate to our team. Our Key-Coding system is so secure that the majority of our clients leave their keys with us. We work very hard every day to ensure the safety and security of our clients and employees.

Trusted Professionals

Our Home Care Associates are employees and members of the Handi Maids family, not subcontractors. Each Associate is trained and supported to give you the best service possible.


100% Guaranteed!

If we didn’t clean your home to your satisfaction, call us within 24 hours of your house cleaning and we will re-clean the area FREE of charge. We encourage your feedback!


No contract! Just give us 48 hours notice to cancel or change your scheduled service. We’ll continue to earn your business through quality. Just ask our clients! Some have been with us for over 20 years! We offer convenient credit card payments so you never have to remember to leave a check or cash. We bring our own cleaning products and equipment.

A Better Cleaning Experience

We strive to provide the comfort of a familiar face visiting your home each time. This is paired with professionalism and the security of an experienced cleaning organization. We know that Home Care Associates take more pride in their work when they clean for the same client consistently. Our schedules are made to build a relationship of trust, reliability and loyalty between the Home Cleaner and client. We make every effort to match you with a consistent Cleaning Associate for your recurring services.

In addition to your personalized home service, our friendly and helpful office staff
is available to assist you with your service details, scheduling and more.

The Hand-I-Maids, Inc. story

In 1983, Helen Swinter, a housewife in Glen Allen, Virginia decided to earn extra income to pay for her son’s college tuition. Helen had the admiration of her peers for her attention to detail, home cleaning knowledge and integrity. Using her talents, she started a small independent 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, Hand-I-Maids, Inc. The spelling of the  company name was unique because it is an acronym for H.I.M.  

All good things come from God (Him) and through Him all things are possible!

Shortly after opening her 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 Helen is taking a well-deserved retirement. Her son, Michael, a former police officer, and his wife, Hope, a business and marketing professional, are delighted to take the company to new heights and standards with the help of their top-notch management team. HandiMaids recruits and seeks out professionals that LOVE to clean and have 

a passion & heart for serving others,

each team member bringing their own unique talents and contributions to our company and our cherished clients.  Although our cleaning techniques are 2nd to none , our focus remains on people – caring for our clients & our Cleaning Associates by listening to what’s important to them and delivering an essential service.

The HandiMaids team continues to work hard to meet the standards and quality levels that Helen set over 37 years ago!

Hand-I-Maids has been caring for our home for several months now. Communication with the office is great. Frances does a wonderful job every other week and really knows how we live and work, paying attention to the areas that mean the most to us. For quality, value, and friendly service they really can't be beat.

This company is just fantastic, from the operations and management and how well they communicate/respond, to the field staff who are so friendly and thorough and just a pleasure to have around! This has been such a valuable investment for me (every other week cleanings) and I can't recommend them enough if you're looking for a regular cleaning service or a seasonal deep clean (which I've also done and adored!).

I just had a spring cleaning of my home and I can’t say enough good things about it! I am a working mom of 3 and go to school, and cleaning usually falls to the bottom of the list. Hand-I-maids was recommended by a friend. I’m so glad I called!! Worth every penny!

Love using their services! Have used them for cleaning our brand new house in preparation of moving in and then continuing with monthly cleaning of certain areas in our house. From the staff in the office to the gals who come to the house, everyone is wonderful, kind and helpful. Everything we asked to be completed was done beyond our expectations. If you are considering calling, do it. You will not be disappointed.
