The MAIDS Home Services

Gale St. John gets a clean start for her business at the Chamber




What does your business do? When and Why did you join the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce?

Gale St. John is the owner of The MAIDS Home Services, a bonded and insured residential and commercial cleaning franchise business based in Crown Heights, with an exclusive license in the five boroughs of NYC. “Our maids are specifically trained to use our proprietary, environmentally safe ‘healthy touch’ cleaning system that is perfect for customers with allergies, young children or pets. We currently service brownstones, co-ops, apartments and small offices, as well as clients who need post-renovation and post-construction clean up.”

I joined the Chamber in May 2005 because their services complement those I receive from my franchise company.”

How has your Brooklyn Chamber membership assisted your business?

“I am the envy of my associates because of the level of service I receive from the Chamber! Good Help handles all my staffing and human resources needs, which has saved me much-needed money and time. I previously was not a “networker” but now participate on the Chamber’s Minority and Women Business Owners (MWBO) Committee, which has proven beneficial for me in that I am meeting Members who are resources for my business. The Chamber also has provided me with opportunities to promote my business as a speaker at panel discussions. I believe the combination of my hard work and the Chamber’s support during this past year contributed to my franchise company selecting me as ‘Client of the Year’ in just my first year of business!”
