Our Story


Claudia Avery, owner of First Maid and Florida Cleaning Concepts and First Maid, came from a huge family of nine children. Everyone was expected to do chores. Her brothers despised cleaning so much, they would pay Claudia to clean for them. She discovered two things: first, she discovered that she was a good cleaner, and second, she discovered that she liked being an entrepreneur.


Years later when Claudia was working for the Duval County School Board, she ventured out on her own during summer break to make some extra money. Claudia realized how much pleasure and satisfaction she got out of seeing how much her work made a difference in the lives of others, she decided to quit her job to start two cleaning business. This was almost 25 years ago. We have been growing stronger ever since!
