Emma Arzate – Co-owner & Founder

Hello! I’m Emma, co-owner and the founding spirit behind Detail Cleaning Services, established in 2009. My inspiration came from my mother, who always harbored a dream of being an entrepreneur. It was during my college years that she embarked on this entrepreneurial journey, and I found myself drawn into it, initially by answering calls for her.

Our company is not just about cleaning homes; it’s about finding purpose in what we do and making a meaningful impact in our community. We’ve partnered with organizations like Cleaning for a Reason and Hope for Three, enabling us to offer free cleaning services to cancer patients undergoing treatment and families with autistic children. This initiative is very personal to me. A few years after we started the company, my mother, one of the founders, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her experience reinforced my belief in the importance of our work. Knowing the challenges cancer patients face, we are committed to providing them with peace of mind by taking care of their homes, so they can focus on their health and recovery. If you know anyone that could benefit from our free cleanings, please direct them here.

As a mother of four, I deeply understand the value of a clean and peaceful home. This understanding fuels my dedication to our business. When I’m not focused on Detail Cleaning Services, I love reading, volunteering at my kids’ school, traveling with my family, or enjoying the latest series with my husband.

Ino Padilla – Co-owner & CFO

Welcome to Detail Cleaning Services! I’m Ino, one of the proud owners of this family-run business. My journey to this point has been unique and fulfilling. After serving four years in the U.S. Army, I returned to Houston, uncertain about my future career path. That’s when I was presented with the incredible opportunity to join our family cleaning business.

My initial involvement soon turned into a deep passion for the company, motivating me to pursue a degree in Business Administration at the University of Houston. Graduating in 2017, I stepped into the full-time role of General Manager. My time in the military had instilled strong leadership skills, and my education at the University of Houston Bauer program equipped me with essential administrative knowledge. Together, these experiences enabled me to contribute significantly to transforming our small business into one of Houston’s finest cleaning services.

Beyond business, my personal life has also shaped my vision. As a father of two young sons diagnosed with Autism, I have become passionate about spreading Autism awareness and aiding parents with similar experiences. We’ve partnered with the local non-profit, Hope for 3, to provide free cleaning services to families with autistic children, helping them gain more time for care and support.
