Maid Brigade Celebrates 20 Years of Improving Lives: Cleanliness and Quality of Life

Robin Murphy

As Maid Brigade celebrates its 20th anniversary this month, owners Robin and Gary Murphy are reflecting on how their business has changed—yet stayed the same. On the one hand, it is now the only green certified cleaning company servicing Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Fairfield Counties. On the other, the company still follows its original mission: to improve the quality of life of everyone it touches.

Two decades ago, working mother Robin Murphy understood the importance of a clean house to her family’s quality of life—and she was surprised by how hard it was to find a good cleaning service that was reliable and trustworthy. “It turned out I wasn’t the only one with this challenge,” she says, and so she ditched her corporate job to fill the void. Maid Brigade has now cleaned more than 37,000 households.

Robin’s mission to improve people’s quality of life prompted her move to safe cleaning solutions to protect staff and customers alike. “As our business grew, we became more mindful of the impact we have on the health of people, pets and the planet,” explains Gary Murphy, who joined Robin in the business in 2005. Their proprietary cleaning system is designed to remove three times more dust, dirt and allergens than a traditional approach involving harmful chemicals, he says.
