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 - Yorkville


"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 - Wheaton


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

Our Service

***WE DO NOT OFFER ONE-TIME VISITS.***
RECURRING SERVICE EVERY 1-8 WKS ONLY.


Clove is a lifestyle cleaning service. We specialize in detailed whole-home cleaning every 1-8 weeks for busy families. We have a specific cleaning method that we use in every home, every visit.Most cleaning companies would call what we do "deep cleaning", but we just call it "cleaning" — why would you want anything less? 😉

How Appointments Work

All of our appointments last between 2 and 3 hours and include up to 4 cleaners depending on home size.If your home would take 1 cleaner less than 2 hours (<800 sqft), we're probably not the cleaning service for you.Similarly, if your home would take 3 cleaners more than 3 hours (4,000+ sqft), we're probably not the cleaning service for you either.

How Recurring Service Works

We offer discounted rates for recurring service every 1-8 weeks. The more often we clean for you, the better the discount.We do not require a contract. You can cancel service any time. We charge a $50 cancelation fee for appointments canceled with less than 24 hours notice.After completing your first clean, we’ll confirm you’re happy with our work and still want to move forward with 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 1-8 weeks until you tell us to stop.

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.
