- GreenHouse Eco-Cleaning
In times when it seems that every cleaning company is slapping on an “Earth-conscious” claim, GreenHouse Eco-Cleaning’s incredibly thorough service stands out for its intensive customization. The company makes its own plant-based cleaners without dyes, detergents, or ammonia, and will adjust them to your tastes, cutting out, say, the aromatherapy scents if you’re not a fan. For the real hard-core greenies, they’ll scour everything using nothing but vinegar and baking soda. And we do mean scour—they really get down along the baseboards and drains, making every visit like a spring cleaning. The initial deep clean is $36 an hour with a three-hour minimum, which is steep, yes—but guaranteed. If there’s any aspect you’re unhappy with, call within 24 hours and they’ll rescrub to your heart’s content.
