After years of working in care, a Bedford-based businesswoman is expanding upon her long career in care by opening a home cleaning franchise, and she’s offering a unique opportunity for those in need of a compassionate cleaning service.
Mercy Ikeji, who lives and works in Bedfordshire, has recently taken her first steps towards self-actualisation as a small business owner with the support of the nationwide Merry Maids UK franchise.
Say hello to Merry Maids in Bedford
Wanting to work for herself but not by herself, Mercy bought a business that allows her and the local women she’s worked with over the years to run her company, ‘Dezionite Domiciliary Care’, while delivering a caring and compassionate service to those in the community.
“I have always had a strong entrepreneurial spirit and passion for care,” Mercy says.
“In my youth, I owned multiple businesses, including a cleaning business in my home country, which I started in 2010 and expanded before pursuing MBA studies in the UK.”
“In my years working in cleaning, I always admired the professionalism of the Merry Maids brand, and I eagerly awaited the opportunity to acquire and grow a Merry Maids franchise business.”
About Merry Maids UK
Merry Maids UK is a nationwide domestic cleaning franchise that provides residents across the UK with expert, hassle-free home cleaning and the time to do what matters most to them.
These range from one-off deep cleaning services for end-of-tenancies, builders of home sales, and regular weekly and monthly cleans to help you keep on top of the housework, complete with dusting, hoovering, mopping and window cleaning.
With over 30 years of expertise supporting their local communities with the backing of a multinational brand, Merry Maids UK prides itself on its personalised, caring and compassionate approach to the people it serves.
Why use professional home cleaning services?
No matter your background, sometimes there are more important things than the cleaning.
Whether it’s spending time with loved ones, reducing the stress of chores or creating a better work-life balance, a professional cleaning service can help give you the time to focus on what counts.
Merry Maids UK also often encounters those in our communities who cannot clean for themselves.
They regularly work alongside residents with dementia and other illnesses that prevent people from being able to clean for themselves.
In these instances, they are recognisable and friendly faces and will take the time to check up on the people in their care.
With the business due to start trading on the 22nd of September, Bedfordshire residents can benefit from professional and personable home cleaning from Merry Maids for the first time.

Informed by her background in care, she would like to commemorate the opening of her new business with a series of charity cleans for those who may be unable to clean their homes for themselves because of illness, circumstance or disability.
