Forget the French maid costumes.
An Omaha woman offers a different uniform while she cleans house: topless, bottomless or fully nude.
This week, a brochure advertising those services was distributed in the neighborhood near 83rd and Burt Streets.
The business, ODD'Z & EN'Z Janitorial & More, advertises “house cleaning and more . . . in plain or exotic professional attire,” as well as cooking services and child care, according to the flier.
House cleaning by a nude maid starts at $125, according to the flier. Nude cleaning with “satisfaction” is $175.
The business owner, Kia Carroll, 27, said she's not a prostitute. Instead, she said, “I am providing entertainment, cleaning up houses and having fun doing it.”
What Carroll is offering probably is illegal, said Omaha City Prosecutor Marty Conboy.
A nude performance (which likely would include cleaning a house in the buff while others are watching) violates Nebraska obscenity laws, Conboy said.
“Any performance involving nudity is technically illegal,” he said. “If it's a display or performance, it's considered obscene.”
Carroll said she has been cleaning houses for two years, but the exotic twist is a relatively new thing. A while back, she said, a client asked her to help out with a barbecue. Carroll said the client asked “if I had any exotic clothes I could wear.”
The idea was born.
Carroll said she also offers her services as entertainment for bachelor and bachelorette, birthday and graduation parties. In addition, she offers private shows.
Carroll compared hiring a nude housekeeper to hiring a stripper to perform at a bachelor party. She said she has two employees, a man and a woman.
Carroll lists her business address as 8316 Underwood Ave. That is the location of Cherry Tree Apartments, an Omaha Housing Authority-owned property.
George Achola, OHA's legal director, said the agency's residents are required to obey all city and state laws.
“This is a strange one,” he said of Carroll's business offerings. “She could possibly get kicked out, but I'd probably wait and see if she was charged with anything.”
The neighborhood where Carroll distributed the fliers is abuzz with talk about ODD'Z & EN'Z.
“I was shocked,” said Betty Becker, who found the notice stuck in her door Wednesday. “That's all I can say. I was shocked.''
Becker said that she worried the flier was “something illegal,” but didn't call police.
“I threw it away,” she said.
Carroll called herself a professional who is simply trying to get her business off the ground.
“There's no limit on cleaning and fun,” she said. “I don't want to be close-minded.”
