Owner, Lesley Horman, Starts a New Venture
After being a customer for many years, Lesley Horman started her small business and joined the Merry Maids family in 1988. As someone coming from a customer service environment, Lesley believed that Merry Maids was the trusted provider that kept her home together, when time and energy ran short.
As Merry Maids had helped Lesley, she wanted to help others. Over three decades later, she is still focused on the mission to “Earn our customer’s trust and commitment through exceptional service.”
Merry Maids is dedicated to providing healthy homes and customer solutions. Utilizing technology, we offer easy communication and real-time team member tracking to elevate the customer experience.
Our team is focused on providing excellent service throughout New Castle County and Cecil County. Along with local charity work, we support charity: water, bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries around the world. We believe everyone deserves to live cleaner, healthier lives. Our team members at Merry Maids of New Castle & Cecil Counties are our greatest asset and the reason we continue to be the preferred cleaning service among residents throughout Newark, Wilmington, Elkton and beyond.
