A good cleaning service?

dust panLauren emails:

Do you think you could do another post on cleaning services around here? I am looking for someone to do a really good deep cleaning job on my parents' kitchen. I saw a post from 2010, with lots of good feedback about the Ecomaids, but it looks like they don't exist anymore! Even Yelp only gives you two or three options -- any help appreciated.

It's our understanding also that Ecomaids is no longer operating here.

Got a suggestion for Lauren? Please share. And as always, a quick sentence about why you're suggesting a certain company can be very helpful.


Ecomaids switched management and imploded a couple of years ago. They just stopped showing up on a regular basis. Since then I found OCD cleaning. It bugs me that they aren't CDO cleaning(in alphabetical order as it should be), but I got over it because they do a great job. They haven't missed an appointment once in the past two years.

I second OCD Cleaning - I only used them once but they did a perfect job and everything smelled fresh and non-chemically. http://www.ocdcleaning.biz/

Charles in Charge Cleaning Service

he's new...but have heard good thing about him...and he'll do an even better job as he wants to build clientele.


Spotless Sisters do a great job! (http://www.spotlesssisters.com/) We have them coming every few weeks.

Denise Velardi of Perfection Green Clean. She's a wonderful person and uses all Eco-friendly products.

We've used Spotless Sisters a few times for seasonal cleaning and I can't recommend them highly enough. Each time they left I felt like we cheated them because they went so far above and beyond what we expected from them. (Solution: tip generously!)

By the way, I have no connection to Spotless Sisters but I'm posting anonymously because I didn't get permission from my wife to admit we use a cleaning service...

Thanks for the recommendations-- looks like some great options!

White Glove Cleaners - great job! Uses quality cleaning products too!


Michelle Boyle and her team at Green Genies. I found her card at X's to O's bakery in Troy and appreciate that she uses nontoxic products. I have a cat and dog and they stay in the house while it is cleaned. I use her twice a month. Very happy to recommend her! http://www.green-genies.com/index.html
