Recommendations for cleaning services?

dust pan with brushJ emails:

Several of my friends are looking for a referral for a house cleaner or house cleaning service that is fantastic in all senses of that word -- quality of clean, attention to detail, availability, price, and trustworthiness
I am asking you, and your dear readers, to assist in finding a "crackerjack cadre of cleaners" for the area, that I would be proud to recommend. Please help.

This question comes up every few years, and things change, so we figured the time might be right for a new set of suggestions.

We're also curious if people have thoughts or advice on what sorts of questions or details to ask about when hiring a cleaning service.

Go a suggestion for J? Please share. And as always, a sentence or two about why're recommending or suggesting a service can be a big help.


OCD cleaners are excellent. I used Ecomaids for years and they were unreliable and didn't clean all that well. I have been using OCD cleaners for at least three years now and I have never had a problem. They clean my house (in Albany) every two weeks and have also done an occasional cleaning for parents (in Schenectady). They show up when they say they will, the staff is friendly and courteous, prices are fair and increases have been reasonable. They are also great about working out changes in your scheduled cleaning if you give them notice. I couldn't be happier.

I believe the word is spreading and the company is expanding. Getting on the schedule for a one time cleaning can take a little longer than it used to. I couldn't be happier for Danielle and her team. They do good work and it is paying off.

Laura, I'm not the one who asked the original question but was wondering about OCD's rates. Thanks.

Spotless Sisters has done a good job when we've used them:

The Cleaning Person is the best! I have had a lot of cleaners at my various homes throughout the years, and no one comes close to their customer service and cleaning service.

Daigle Cleaning Systems, Inc. based out of Clifton Park, NY is a rapidly growing residential maid service that services the entire capital region. I began a working relationship with Michelle Daigle and Derek Foster two years ago and their attention to detail and the quality of service is second to none. They actually even have a 100% satisfaction guarantee to back their work. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is seeking residential cleaning services

Green Genies is pretty awesome. They use all natural products and essential oils so you come home to a house smelling of lavender, thyme, or bergamot instead of bleach. They have an awesome attention to detail and I love it! Clean, eco friendly, very reliable, and they are a super nice bunch. Check out their website

Washington Avenue definitely needs more than one lane in each direction, but that doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. They can reduce the size of the lanes, add a median, and add a protected bike lane where the shoulder of the road now lies. I agree, however, that the entire Harriman loop would have to be redesigned and that includes those over-passes, so this would be an extremely expensive undertaking if they want to do it right. But there could be significant development on the land that is now wasted by asphalt that could offset that cost and bulk up the tax base for the city.
