"The American House Cleaners Association (AHCA) founded National Professional House Cleaners Day in 2019 to raise awareness, respect, and recognition for House Cleaners and the professional house cleaning industry. The day was also founded to celebrate their necessary contributions to the health and wellbeing of our society, as one of the most skilled trades of the labor force in the United States. 

In 2019, the Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Professional House Cleaners Day to be observed on September 17th annually.

The AHCA is the leading voice of the professional house cleaning industry in the United States. Our private cleaning community of 19,000 professional house cleaners is led by house cleaning industry community leaders, Kevin and Grace Reynolds and Sheryl Milligan, of Handmaid Cleaning, LLC in Walla Walla, WA. Join us on Facebook:

There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day® with National Day Calendar®!

As Seen On National Day Calendar:

"National Professional House Cleaners Day on September 17th recognizes Professional Cleaners for the necessary and skillful trade they provide every day. In homes and business across the country, Professional Cleaners create healthier environments.

This recognition day celebrates a career many may overlook or take for granted. While not everyone hires a Professional Cleaner, in some way, they do impact our lives. Nearly every business we frequent, and apartment building rented, utilizes professional cleaners. Economically, the industry employs approximately 3.25 million people creating a positive impact on the marketplace."

Benefits of Hiring Professional Cleaners

Besides cleaning homes and businesses, Professional House Cleaners offer so much more. Some of the benefits include:

  • Improved air quality – Regular professional cleaning reduces the build-up of dust. In older homes, exposure to allergins, lead, and asbestos fibers increase. A regular schedule of professional cleaning removes those contaminants from the air.
  • Longevity – Regular care of furniture, drapes, floors, and homes extends their life. Over time, items look newer longer and need replacing less often. These savings add up.
  • Time – Profession Cleaners free up time for family, friends, and investing in the essential things of life.
  • Health – Getting a sanitary clean in places like the kitchen and bathroom is essential. Not only do Professional Cleaners know how to achieve a hygienic clean, but they also use the right tools for the job.
  • Relaxation – Psychologically, coming home to a clean enables us to relax. We don’t face clutter. Everything is in its place.

Exceptionally Skilled

National Professional House Cleaners Day also praises the skills and knowledge of the people. Those in the industry have a passion for perfection, and here’s why:

  • Detail-oriented/well organized – A Professional Cleaner’s eye for detail and organizational skills make them ideal for this career. Their no-nonsense approach and thoroughness leave satisfied customers behind. Besides, how else do you get a house clean?
  • Experts – Professional Cleaners are experts when it comes to protecting, cleaning, and restoring fabrics and surfaces. Not only that, but they’re also the experts when it comes to protecting you and their employees. Doing the job right without injury to an employee, and maintaining a safe home is essential.
  • Leading the way – Many Professional Cleaners run their businesses. They employ specialists, balance product, schedules, and training. These business owners set a standard for their employees who in turn become leaders, too.
  • Efficient – When it comes to getting a job done right and quickly, Professional Cleaners mastered efficiency generations ago. Not only do they know the most effective ways, but the most cost-effective and healthiest ways to get a home or business clean. As a result, they’re also the businesses you can trust.

In an Effort to bring all cleaners together for support and collaboration, our team has invested thousands of hours and monetary funds in order to bring Cleaners together into a community, many who have never had connection with others in the industry before now. We know that in order to accomplish our mission to increase respect for the cleaner, we must first inspire a greater understanding of their own value to our society. In this group we are inspiring one another, and collaborating in our journeys. By providing a safe place to share openly, it has set an atmosphere of nurturing our growth in this industry, enabling us to improve ourselves as cleaning providers, ultimately empowering all of us to have more confidence, shaking off previous attitudes that have held us back, and creating a new understanding of professionalism. 

     Our Story Behind this Day 

In early 2019, after years of talking about the need for a day to recognize cleaners, Kevin Reynolds, the co-founder of the AHCA, took the initiative to campaign for a day to recognize House Cleaners nationally with the National Day Calendar. 

"Grace and  I always make big decisions like this together, especially when a good deal of funds are needed, but I was confident that it would mean the world to her, and the expense wouldn't even cross her mind in light of her passion for all the people who serve in this industry, and deep desire to establish a greater respect for them. When it came to choosing the day - it was an easy choice, Grace's Birthday, September 17th. Although I knew many people wouldn't want to share 'their special day' with any other celebration - Grace is a different kind, I knew it would be exactly what she wanted."

-Kevin Reynolds

A few weeks later National Professional House Cleaners Day was officially selected as 1 of 30 National Days selected out of almost 20,000 applications for the National Calendar this year. 

"I remember crying when I heard the news that Kevin had secured this day - and when he told me he had secured it for the 17th of  September, I was floored and I couldn't thank him enough - only short of life itself, I couldn't have been given a better birthday present for the rest of my life! It still brings tears to my eyes, and probably always will, when I really think about the impact of this step toward a greater appreciation for this trade, and most importantly a greater respect for all those that serve the world in this way."  -Grace Reynolds

WHY the American House Cleaners Association?

AHCA Founders, Grace and Kevin Reynolds, are a husband and wife team with a growing family of eight children and the founders of the award winning and nationally recognized industry brand, Handmaid Cleaning. They have been named marketing experts by Facebook and have received the title and privilege of being life-time members of the nationally accredited Facebook SMB Council. Since being brought into the council in 2017, they have been invited to Facebook Headquarters in Menlo Park, CA, and in Austin Texas, where they have been hosted multiple times to speak on stage and as expert panelists to share & teach business owners about the most cutting-edge technology in marketing today. Grace & Kevin have become the community leaders of the professional cleaning industry, industry social & tech entrepreneurs, and influencers. Although they could have taken many other routes and opportunities to "get out" of the cleaning industry - they are excited to use their expertise and connections to make a difference in an industry where change has always been needed, lead this national movement, and provide a new and more effective approach while revolutionizing the Cleaning Industry. 

Utilizing their skills, knowledge, connections and established national authority, Kevin and Grace Reynolds are now inspiring and fostering a new respect for this trade nation wide by using their marketing and advertising skills by establishing the National Authority of the AHCA with the public. Promoting the Industry through creating events like National Professional House Cleaners Day, spotlighting cleaning services in their local communities, and working closely with developers utilizing the best & most advanced technology in the world, to reform and develop more affordable, accessible, and effective systems for the industry, making professionalism not only more attainable, but also making this trade more respected as a whole.
