Cleaning Companies in Toronto
By Elli Davis, August 28, 2012
“A clean house is a sign of a broken computer.” As sad as it is, this statement is not actually that far from the truth. It does not have to be like that, however. Everyone — even those who do not move from their computers for more than a minute, can have a perfectly clean home anytime; you just have to use the services of a cleaning company. There are plenty to choose from in Toronto. This article offers a short list of cleaning companies in our city, with special attention paid to small and eco-friendly businesses.
As the name of the company suggests, it does more than cleaning your home; its focus is on fairness and helping the environment. What can you expect using the services of Fair Trade Cleaning? The basic cleaning provided by the company consists of sweeping and washing the floors, dusting and vacuuming the furniture, disinfecting countertops and sinks as well as wiping down the outsides of the major appliances in the kitchen, cleaning and disinfecting all fixtures, and polishing taps and mirrors in the bathroom. Additional cleaning such as window cleaning (for an extra fee) is possible too, if you are interested.
Purely organic, environmentally friendly products and methods are used to clean your space, be it a house or an office. A very important point to note is that while charging the customers a normal, competitive rate, the company claims to pay its cleaners “a significantly higher rate than other cleaning companies.” Fair Trade Cleaning thus offers two great services: a clean house and a good feeling that your money helped someone (as well as the environment).
This family-owned and operated company began in 2005. A negative experience with a cleaning company was the main impulse that led to the creation of Clean and Shiny. Precisely that, personal experience, is one of the reasons why the company ought to know what customers want and thus try its best to satisfy their needs. Besides “treating your home as if it was their own” Clean and Shiny only uses eco-friendly, natural methods while doing their job. Whatever type of cleaning you are looking for, this company is ready to help: just give them a call or send an e-mail, agree to the conditions, and let the professionals with years of cleaning experience make your home a shinier place.
If you are looking for a company that has withstood the test of time, this ecological and health-conscious company might be perfect for you. Earth Concerns Cleaning, operating since 1995, is a small business, so it does not offer cleaning services all over the GTA. Its reach is limited to downtown Toronto (specifically, South of Lawrence, West of Victoria Park, and East of Royal York). The standard cleaning service offered by this company includes dusting, vacuuming, sweeping, mopping of all floors, an intensive clean in the bathrooms and in the kitchen, garbage emptying, and more. They also offer a consultation service and delivery of products. Of course, everything is perfectly environmentally friendly. Do not hesitate to let these professionals take care of your home for a while.
Maret’s has been providing its customers with “professional, efficient, and affordable cleaning services” for 15 long years. Over that time, it has built a stable clientele, which is broadening every day. It is no wonder, really, the company is ready to clean any part of their home (kitchen, bathroom, windows — nothing is a problem) as frequently as they desire. Fully customized service is available. Whether you need one-time professional help or regular cleaning, Maret’s is prepared to offer a helping hand. Importantly, the company only uses 100 per cent natural (and very effective) green cleaning products. That certainly sounds perfect to me.
The history of this company is simple. After losing her job, Valentina (the manager) started with cleaning the homes of her friends. They were satisfied with her services and spread the news, and thus an increasing number of people were interested in letting Valentina clean their houses. It was in 2006 when she decided to establish Cleaning Service Toronto. Whether you need help with your house, apartment, or office, this small company is “ready to make your place spotless.” The same European lady will clean your home every time. The services they offer include vacuuming floors, carpets, rugs, and soft furniture, polishing the furniture made of natural wood, dusting, and much more. Wondering why you should choose this company? “Because we care,” they say.
Even if you like cleaning and keeping your house shiny is not a problem, you might well use the help of professionals from time to time. Could you, for example, clean your mattress, your carpets, or the couch all by yourself? I know I couldn't, and I must say I am glad we have companies like Parma Cleaning to do this job for me. With more than 20 years of experience in the cleaning business, this company knows exactly how to satisfy its customers. Its services include carpet/oriental carpet cleaning, move-in/move-out cleaning, mattress cleaning, pet cleaning, area rug cleaning and more. The materials used for cleaning are all non-toxic and they “will keep your home environment free of harmful chemicals.” What more could you ask for?
