What Our Clients Say

"This was the best cleaning experience I’ve had, ever. I love how friendly everyone was from getting a quote to the end of the services on the day of my appointment. I also love all the communication I received leading up to my appointment day. Everything was clear and concise, I knew exactly what was going on and when. The day of my appointment was great, everything went so well, I haven’t found anything that was missed. Everything is sparkling clean and my house smells absolutely amazing. I love that they use homemade cleaners that are safe for my family, pets and the surfaces in my home. No harsh chemical smells, just lovely essential oil scents. I’m really looking forward to having them come out again to help this busy mom out! Thank you, Clove!"

★★★★★ Lisa - Oswego


"We had such an amazing experience with Clove Cleaning! We actually set up a one time clean, with no intention of scheduling a repeated service and we were so impressed that we decided to set up a monthly clean with Clove. Highly, highly recommend!"

★★★★★ Stephanie - Saint Charles


"Coming home to my home after a day of work when Clove cleaning has cleaned my home is an amazing feeling. Not only is my home immaculately clean but it smells so fresh! The best thing is that they do the little things like straighten my daughters books, remake their beds and do personal things that make the cleaning worth every penny! Additionally, Tyler is always responsive and truly interested in the clients satisfaction. Would definitely recommend!"

★★★★★ Jessica - Saint Charles

"Being a mom of a one and a half year old, I LOVE that this company uses eco-friendly cleaning products that are not harmful to the environment or children and pets. The crew of 3 ladies included the owner of the company and they were all friendly, professional and left my house very clean and smelling great! Every other company I spoke with said they would send a single person to clean the whole house which would probably take most of the day and also seems like abuse on employees. I loved that this company sent a crew of three people to get the job done in 2 hours!"

★★★★★ Maria - Batavia


"Clove Cleaning has been the best cleaning service I have had since living here. Working and having 3 children, I cannot seem to get the cleaning details that Clove Cleaning never seems to miss! My house smells amazing after and the entire family enjoys coming home to clean house! I would highly recommend this cleaning service. 10/10 😀"

★★★★★ Samantha - Batavia


"Clove is a phenomenal small business. Tyler and Becca have been great to work with from the start. The entire team is very friendly and professional. I truly look forward to how great my home smells after my monthly clean. Highly recommend!"

★★★★★ Kelli - Naperville


"Amazing team…Friendly, professional, efficient…and my house never looked or smelled better!!! Highly recommend!"

★★★★★ Deb - North Aurora

Clove is a lifestyle cleaning service. We specialize in detailed whole-home cleaning every 1-6 weeks for busy families.

Your First Clean

Our first visit is called the "initial clean". It's scheduled for 3 hours and includes up to 4 cleaners depending on the size of your home.This is a longer appointment as we're learning your house for the first time and working through any existing dirt/dust buildup. It also puts us in the best shape to maintain your home efficiently during recurring service.

Recurring Service

After completing your initial clean, we’ll follow up to confirm you’re happy with everything and are ready to schedule recurring service.We’ll pick a day of the week (M-F) and time slot (8am, 11am, or 2p) that works for you and we’ll keep showing up every 1-6 weeks until you tell us to stop.Recurring visits are scheduled for 2.5 hours with up to 4 cleaners depending on home size.We do not require a contract. You can cancel service any time. We do charge a $50 cancelation fee for appointments canceled with less than 24 hours notice.

FAQ's

Do I have to be home during my appointment?
No. As long as we have a door code or spare key, we're happy to let ourselves in. We do not hold copies of keys, so if you don't have any keyless entry options, we recommend using a lockbox like this.

Is it a problem if I'm home during my appointment?
Nope. We'll confirm which room you'd like to be in during the appointment and we'll clean that area first so we can stay out of each other's way.

Can my pets be out while you clean?
Yes. We love pets and many of them end up on our Instagram. However, if they're scared of vacuums or don't appreciate strangers wandering around their house, it may be best for them to go in a crate or head to daycare.

Will you use my vacuum?
No. Our cleaning method is designed around everyone on our team having their own vacuum. Our cleaners are trained specifically on how to use every single feature of the exact vacuum model we use.
We understand why you might ask — you don't want other people's dirt, allergens, etc. dragged into your home. Our vacuums use a double filtration system, one of which is a HEPA filter. We replace filters regularly and clean/service all of our vacuums regularly. Our team empties their vacuum's dust bin and clears the brush head between every visit.

How do you mop?
We use a cuban mop technique. This is a style of damp mopping using a microfiber towel pushed around with a long handle. It's the next best thing to scrubbing on hands and knees, which we also do when necessary.

Will you use this specific cleaning product that I provide?
Maybe. We make many of our own cleaning solutions from scratch and we're really proud of them. Our entire cleaning method is designed around a specific set of products that our team is trained in. Everything we use is eco-friendly and non-toxic. However, if you have a very specific need that one of our products will not meet, we will consider using a specific product you provide as long as we can find a way to incorporate it into our cleaning process.

How do I pay?
All of our billing is handled electronically via Square. You can pay by card or direct debit from a bank account. We will save your payment method on file and bill you automatically after each clean, or if you'd prefer, we can email + text you an invoice to pay manually after each clean.

Can I tip?
Yes. You can leave cash for our team or add a tip to your online payment. 100% of all tips are split evenly between the cleaners at your appointment. Note: our team is paid well, so while tips are greatly appreciated, they are not relied upon by anyone to earn a living.

Our Pricing

Clove is one of the more expensive cleaning services you'll find. We do things right and pay our team well. If you're looking for discount cleaning, we're not the service for you, and that's okay.

Why We Cost More

• We pay our cleaners more than other cleaning companies.

• We invest in our team with paid training, great wages, annual raises, performance bonuses, health benefits, retirement savings, and paid holidays.

• We invest in quality equipment and eco-friendly products, many of which we make in-house.

• We’re insured, bonded, and pay taxes.

Why We're Worth it

• We’re a small, local, close-knit team. You’ll see the same friendly, familiar faces every visit. We never use subcontractors.

No one cares more about attention to detail, communication, & caring for your home and your family than us. This isn’t just lip service, we really, truly mean it.

We’re really good at what we do. You'd think every company could say that, but if you’ve tried other cleaning services, you know that's not the case. We show up on time, every time. We work just as hard and pay as much attention to detail on your 50th cleaning as we do on your 1st.

How Our Pricing Works

Our pricing is a simple, flat rate based on the number of cleaners required for your home.We typically use our entire appointment time (3 hrs for initial clean, 2.5 hrs for recurring visits), but on the occasion we finish a bit early, pricing stays the same. Same goes for the occasions we go a bit over time - same price.Our typical client requires 2 cleaners, pays $245 per recurring visit, and has us clean for them every 3-4 weeks.

Our Policies

By booking with Clove Cleaning, you agree to the following terms of service.

Cancelation Fee ($50)

If an appointment is canceled with less than 24 hours notice, we reserve the right to charge a $50 cancelation fee via invoice or card on file. We make exceptions for family emergencies and sickness.


Firearms

Firearms must be securely stored away while our team is in your home.


Lockout Fee ($75)

If we arrive to your home and are unable to gain entry, we will contact you via text message and/or phone call, then wait up to 30 minutes. After 30 minutes of failing to gain entry, our team will leave and a $75 lockout fee will be charged via invoice or card on file.


Late Payment Fee (5%)

If we are unable to collect payment for services rendered within 14 days of service, a 5% late payment fee will be added to the balance due on your outstanding invoice. This process will be repeated for each additional 14 days without payment.


Quality Control

Everyone on our team works hard to make sure you're happy with our cleaning. On the rare occasion we fall short of your expectations, we want to make it right - BUT we typically cannot send cleaners back to your home to touch up missed details. We run a very tight schedule and are often 100% booked. Our most common resolution is a partial refund based on the complaint.


Right to Terminate Service

Clove Cleaning reserves the right to terminate service for any client at any time for any reason. Notice will be provided via text message, email, or phone call.

2024 Update

Here's some info about our pricing update for 2024.Client demand has been nonstop since our start in 2020. We proudly provide recurring cleaning service to over 250 families every 1-6 weeks, and from what we hear, we continue to provide a level of service that far exceeds any other cleaning company in the area.Our biggest struggle, like any small business, is staffing high quality employees. We've hovered around 20 cleaners on staff for all of 2023, maintaining just enough capacity to serve our client base. While we have lower turnover than other cleaning companies, hiring, training, & retaining the best employees requires constant work.We reduced our service area twice in 2023, halting service for nearly 100 families across the Wheaton/Glen Ellyn/Winfield region to the east and the Elburn/Sugar Grove/Yorkville region to the west, in order to more effectively service our core service area in Batavia, Geneva, St Charles, Naperville, Aurora, & Oswego.Our goal for 2024 is to continue growing our cleaning staff to increase capacity and provide an even more consistent, reliable, high quality cleaning service for clients like you.For 2024, we are rolling out a new progressive performance pay model and a vehicle maintenance program for the Clove cleaners you've come to trust in your home.Top-performing cleaners will now have the opportunity to earn up to $22.50/hr after just 6 months at Clove, while senior cleaners will earn over $30/hr for their additional responsibilities. Earnings are based on attendance, performance grades from peers & management, and client feedback surveys.Cleaning homes day after day is hard work, and doing it at the caliber and consistency our cleaners do is even more challenging. To continue attracting and retaining the extremely hardworking cleaners you expect from Clove, we have to offer top-of-market wages.Our new vehicle maintenance program offers each Clove cleaner a $500 annual budget to be used toward vehicle maintenance expenses (claimed by submitting service receipts). Our cleaners use their own vehicles for work, which keeps our operating costs lower than leasing company vehicles, but nothing grinds our operations to a halt more than a vehicle breakdown sidelining a cleaner for multiple days. This new program will ensure more preventative maintenance is completed on our staff vehicles and when major repairs come up, cleaners will be back to cleaning ASAP with minimal stress.We wanted to share these details about our rate change so it was clear what the funds were being used for. At a time when everything feels more expensive, we wanted it to be clear this is not a push for more profit, but a necessary increase to continue staffing the best cleaners possible to take care of your home.We wish you and your family a happy & healthy 2024, and sincerely look forward to continuing to clean for you.- Tyler & Becca Berggren, and the entire Clove Cleaning crew
