So, what's Lime Maids all about?
We’re a platform designed to provide reliable and sustainable home cleaning, on demand. Cleaners view us as a supportive ecosystem that provides them with consistent work, while still having the flexibility of being their own boss. To our clients, we’re the accessible bridge to a network of friendly, conscious home cleaners.
We're out to do some crazy cool things.
Making home cleaning accessible, while improving the outlook of what it means to be a home cleaner. That’s our goal. As we grow, we’re continuing to look for new ways to integrate our respect for the planet and those who call it home with a working business model. Prioritizing local business, creativity, environmentalism, and kindness along the way.
Ok, here’s our vision.
This is the story of us.
Opening in 2017, Lime Maids began as a side project for Jasper while at the University of Vermont. The mission was simple: make the process of finding and booking a reliable home cleaner easier.
Soon enough, 2020 came around with a global pandemic in store. Jasper’s partner Katie hopped on board, and the two decided to shut down for a couple months to revitalize the company with a new focus on sustainability & community care. While Jasper was able to sustain following the pandemic, he knew that Lime Maids had a huge potential and would be better reached under new ownership with someone that had a long-term passion for building it.
In August of 2021, Lime Maids was acquired by Samantha Jacobs. Since this transition of ownership the overall business model of Lime Maids has shifted, but the vision stayed the same. Instead of remaining a platform that connected cleaners to clients, Samantha changed our business model to a full service cleaning business with trained employees.
This change has allowed Lime Maids to set our cleaners up for greater success by providing proper tools, training, and feedback. The systems and structure has allowed Lime Maids to provide a consistent level of service for our customers – no matter which team member walks through your doors. This change has also opened up opportunities for our team to advance in leadership roles and earn benefits.
The vision of Lime Maids started by Jasper to provide a flexible, independent job with a positive company culture has remained the same. We want our cleaners to feel like they are their own boss, and we want to build a recurring schedule of clients for them. With that being said, the systems and processes in place provide true accountability for our team – ensuring that our customers are receiving quality service.
Under new leadership, Lime Maids has retained all 3 cleaners that were onboard at the time of transition, and have added 15 more throughout the course of the following year. We have grown our recurring client base from 39 to 150+, and we continue to grow rapidly. Every day we are committed to developing systems and training for our cleaners, operations manager, and customer service manager – so that Lime Maids can continue to grow and make our client’s lives better.
Many changes have taken place since August 2022, but our mission stays the same. We are the Conscious Cleaning Community.
