A Message from Liz Trotter, Owner, American Maid Cleaning

I am Liz Trotter, the owner of American Maid Cleaning, LLC. I have been actively involved in the Cleaning Service Industry since 1986.

I’ve lived in Olympia since 1984. My immediate family is small, consisting of my husband Tim and my son Gavin who is 14 years old. My daughter Shara is 28 and lives in Kansas. She moved to the South to go to college and fell in love with it and is quite content making her home there these days.

As the eldest of 8 children I have been in service and caring since I can remember. I am proud to work with the people I do and to provide the services we do. I love making your day better!

My passion for cleaning homes began at the age of 11. It was how I stood out from my 7 siblings! I cleaned circles around everyone and felt good doing it-I still do today!! It’s also where I began learning about Leadership. Trust me when I tell you that if you want to get the best from your 7 siblings you’d better have a few tricks up your sleeve!

My commitment to each and every home owner is to do what you want done the way you want it done utilizing g only people who are trustworthy. I will work tirelessly to earn your faith through constant training and communication.
