Still Looking for the Perfect #MothersDay Gift? Score Some Points with Mom; Give the Gift of Clean from Merry Maids

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--()--Still not sure what to get Mom for #MothersDay this year? Flowers and chocolate are great, but what about surprising Mom with a gift that gives her time to relax or spend time making fun memories with friends and family?

The experts at Merry Maids, one of the nation’s largest home cleaning service providers and a ServiceMaster (NYSE: SERV) company, say a clean home is one of the best gifts for any mom.

“Moms do it all. They are the go-to for everyone’s needs and always find a way to get it all done,” says Debra Johnson, Merry Maids’ home cleaning expert. “It’s a stressful job, taking care of a home, a family, a job and everything else life brings, and it doesn’t always leave time to enjoy the things she loves most. Giving her the gift of a clean home will mean the world to her!”

Johnson said the company is making it easy to pamper Mom this year with easy-to-order Merry Maids gift cards and the convenience of purchasing its professional cleaning services online. Many locations also provide cleaning estimates via text.

Still not sure if this is the perfect gift for your mom? Check out this research from Merry Maids:

  • Not surprisingly, more than 80 percent of moms say they have the primary responsibility for cleaning the home.
  • Having children has changed moms’ lives – and their definition of a “clean house.” 70 percent of moms say their criteria for “clean” is a lot less stringent since having kids.
  • The impact is real. Despite learning to live with a messier home, nearly nine-in-10 moms feel stressed when their home is messy.

“I can’t imagine a mom who wouldn’t love to have her home professionally cleaned, whether she has kids at home or is an empty nester,” said Johnson. “It’s a great way to show her how much you appreciate all she does, and help her enjoy this special day.”
