A year ago Casey and Nora Jones had never worked in the cleaning industry before but they had an idea and a plan and now a year later their in-home cleaning service, House Spouse, is gaining quite the reputation.

“It has surpassed our expectations,” Casey said. “You never know with a new business how things will end up. We started with an idea we thought was unique… We’ll continue to grow from there both in number of staff we dedicate to any one thing and the services we offer.”

House Spouse was recently named by Phoenix Magazine readers as Best Maid Service for 2013. Their token offering is in-home cleaning but the company also does pool cleaning and professional tile, grout and carpet cleaning.

When the company officially launched in March of 2013 they had four employees. Today they have 11. Their growth is steady but Casey and Nora said their specialty is really being able to offer a personal touch to each client. Casey sits down with each client on the initial visit and Casey and Nora still run the business together.

“We’re still a small business, but we’re growing pretty well,” Casey said. “We don’t want to have 50 employees. We want to have a personal relationship with each customer. That’s what makes us different. We have a boutique feel.”

House Spouse is based in Ahwatukee Foothills, where Casey and Nora live. The office is located at 4809 E. Thistle Landing, Suite 100. For more information on the company visit housespouse.com or call (480) 834-2905.

“Our success is really a testament to the Ahwatukee community,” Nora said. “We feel so thankful to be here and part of this community. We’ve had so much support in all that we’ve done. That community support is what has made us successful.”
