Changing the Narrative-Why This Small Business Feels the Words We Use Matter

Changing the narrative on an old industry.

East Brunswick, NJ, April 05, 2017 --(, the professional cleaning service that has built a renowned reputation for its hassle-free services, is setting to change the narrative in the professional cleaning industry.

For centuries, the term “maid” has been used to describe a specific demographic of people. Per the Merriam-Webster definition, a “maid” is a female servant; especially a woman or girl who does cleaning work in a house or hotel. The world is changing and has changed to bring about equal rights to all. There have been progressive women’s rights movements and creating equality in the workplace. So why, in the year 2017, do we still use such an archaic term to describe people who clean homes or properties for a living?

The founder of wondered the same thing. Maany Silva, who founded Professional Cleaning Services says, “The word 'maid' is so outdated. I have worked as a professional cleaner for most my life. I know many women who clean for a living. We are independent and successful. Why should we be viewed any differently?” She wanted to create an environment for her workers where they would not be viewed as merely “maids” but as professionals. Professional Cleaners are hardworking individuals who take pride in what they do. They love helping their customers and seeing them smile.

Office Manager Aziza Hana agrees with this mindset, stating, “The term ‘maid’ carries so many negative connotations with it. It’s as if we were lumping all women and minorities into this one group and creating a wedge between socioeconomic statuses. When people use the word “maid” to describe our employees, I immediately correct them. We need to change people’s mindsets. Here at, we are all equals. We are a progressive, innovative company and we are changing the narrative.”
