For Cherry Baker and Crystal Jewell-Maksou of Angel Maids, providing professional cleaning services for area clients is not only their business, it is their calling.

“In 2015, Cherry and I felt that the Lord was compelling us to begin a cleaning ministry on His foundation in Ocala. We both came from St. Augustine originally and had known many of the same people there. But we had never met until years later, when God had called each of us to come to Ocala. We knew then that He had a plan for us that was much bigger than our minds could grasp,” said co-founder Crystal of the company’s beginnings.

Along with a lifelong desire to help others, both Cherry and Crystal have had years of experience in both residential and commercial cleaning, and clients commend their expertise, attention to detail, and integrity.

They provide standard services such as high-performance vacuuming and top-to-bottom cleaning, including those hard-to-reach places and even light fixtures that are so often missed. However, Angel Maids will also skillfully clean windows, ceiling fans, and all types of flooring—wood, ceramic tile, and more.

For clients with allergies or chemical sensitivities, Cherry and Crystal offer allergen-free solutions with a wide range of safe chemicals, including natural and home-remedy cleaners.

“Both Cherry and Crystal are proactive about making sure they are cleaning my home the way I would clean it,” commented client Carol Alvey. “They are always open to and appreciative of constructive cleaning suggestions and are willing to try new product lines to improve the overall result. And they are adaptable, trustworthy and work hard to keep our home sparkling,” she added.

As Angel Maids does cleaning in preparation for many special events and parties, they also have catering services available. “We have people we connect with to cater events for our residential and commercial clients, even if you need specialty foods.”

But what shines through in one client testimonial after another is what sets Angel Maids apart from other residential and commercial cleaning services: their ministry itself.

“Ours is truly a faith-based company,” Crystal explained. “Through God’s hand of deliverance from our own trials and past experiences, our heart has been set on loving others and lifting burdens, spiritually and physically, from all people the Lord sends our way. We offer prayer in every situation without forcing any belief system on anyone. We firmly believe that this world needs encouragement, hope, and more than anything, a taste of God’s love. Although challenges may come, we take pride in helping our customers to feel better and have a new sense of hope and relief in their lives again.”

And clients are thankful for this ministry, calling Angel Maids “God sent” and recommending them for their caring hearts as much as going above and beyond to provide exceptional cleaning services.

Crystal summed up their company’s goals and gave their Biblical reference for them as well: “It’s our hope to reach those in dark situations and bring light into their lives. The Lord has sent us out to His people to help restore what has been lost, broken, or a burden to them. (Luke 10:1-2 and Mathew 11:28).”
