Don't Laugh - remote/national cleaning services

I am curious if any solo 'Streamers make use of any reputable (if they exist) national cleaning/maid service plans whilst they are on the road for extended periods; and if so, can provide feedback on good companies (or good methods they've used.)

When I finally pull the trigger (currently planned at T -20 months,) I plan not only on a unit I can live and work in comfortably, but I can also house guests - siblings, their children, friends, etc. So while I recognize that you personalize and make a trailer YOURS first and foremost, I also recognize that what is comfortable for me will cause my mother or my sisters-in-law to pull out the scrubbers and get to work in the kitchen when I am not looking.

So, the idea would be is if I am traveling to one of the great western parks and my brother and his family fly out to meet me there, is there a national subscription service (or other ideas you may have) that would enable me to cost-effectively have a cleaning service come in near to or at where my meet-up destination is, so that my family and friends have a more comfortable and enjoyable hygene experience during visits? Would any FlyingJ or other plazas carry such services, or other ideas you may have?

I know you said don't laugh, but I can not help it. This really is funny to me. I clean up as I mess up. If this is not good enough for someone visiting that frankly is their problem not mine.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

I've seen some cleaning services making visits at larger state parks in Oregon. They do deep cleaning on big rigs and I imagine that if you were full-timing having your carpets steam cleaned and other similar difficult tasks might be really nice.

I'm not aware of a national chain but I think that some googling will help you find service like this in a specific area. In my area, the biggest RV dealer offers this service. Here's an example of a company in MD

Ahhh! RV dealerships -- I had not thought of that option. Thanks for the information, Janet!

There are several chain household cleaning services (Merry Maids comes to mind) who do one time deep cleaning events in addition to contracted weekly type stuff.
