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/

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

I had the pleasure of experiencing protected bike lanes in Montreal recently. It really made for a fast, efficient way to move both bike & car traffic. As a biker, it was easy to see how to navigate a busy road, and it was nice to have a bit of buffer/safety from traffic (or just knowing that the possibility of a car swerving in to you was incredibly low because of these features). As a driver, it was nice to see all of the bikes in one area, so that you don't have the errant biker who decides to blow through most of the traffic signals the wrong way down a street.
