Maid2Clean has become the first domestic cleaning franchise in the UK to offer a professional qualification in cleaning.

The qualification, MaidVersity, is the only training programme to specialise in domestic cleaning and has been developed in conjunction with the British Institute of Cleaning Sciences.

Mike Hanrahan, owner of Maid2Clean, said: “This qualification will give our staff the recognition they deserve. We want our cleaners to be proud of the industry they are part of.”

The qualification is exam-based and will allow suitable candidates to progress to supervisor or management levels, encouraging more people to consider a career in cleaning.

Hanranhan said: “We have pioneered a meaningful and quality qualification, which will not only create more jobs right across the UK but help our employees on a clear path to career progression.”

As well as the MaidVersity qualification, the company has also introduced a new best-practice forum so its cleaners can share tips and advice to further professionalise the domestic cleaning sector.

Hanranhan added: “By investing in web-based applications that make life easier for our franchises the Maid2Clean brand goes from strength to strength and gives a superior franchise offering.”
