As a real estate agent, I’ve worked with a lot of cleaning companies over the years. It’s an important part of the concierge services I provide my clients as part of getting their homes ready for sale, and also when it comes to preparing my client’s properties for lease.
When I have a real estate transaction here in Alderwood, I always want to use someone close by, and who knows the area; and that has always been JIC Cleaning Company.
In this story of ‘Around the Neighbourhood’, I wanted to showcase them to highlight the great, local services they provide and how they got started here in Alderwood:
Q. Tell me a bit about your background/Who are the owners? What’s their story?
A. I (Sara Pulla) was born and raised in North York and moved to Alderwood 3 years ago. I absolutely love the neighbourhood and enjoy having great restaurants, grocery stores, cafes and Sherway Gardens in such close proximity. I am proud to call South Etobicoke, home! I decided to start the business 5 years ago. I always had a desire to own my business and have always had a passion for cleaning. I have always been a hard worker and with a great team, I had no doubt I would be successful. I always strive for excellence and ensure to provide only the best cleaning service for each one of my clients each and every time.
Q. What made you want to get involved in starting a cleaning business?
A. I decided to start the business as I realized it is quite challenging to find attentive and detailed cleaners and with my experience, I was confident I could create a niche and fill a void in the market place.
Q. What areas of the city do you service?
A. We service the entire GTA and surrounding areas.
Q. How long does a typical cleaning job take?
A. It depends on the size of unit/house. However a 1 bedroom condo typically takes 2 hours with 2 cleaners for a general cleaning. A deep clean will take more time depending on the condition. Cost will be determined by size of unit, general cleaning or deep cleaning which would include appliances.
Q. Do the homeowners need to provide the cleaning products / tools or is that something you have?
A. We typically provide all the cleaning products and supplies required, however in some cases clients prefer to use their own products which is completely fine with us. We also use environmentally friendly products for clients who prefer this.
Q. Do you clean commercial properties as well as residential?
A. Yes absolutely. We clean both residential and commercial properties.
Q. How can someone book a cleaning?
A. They can just call or text me (Sara) at 416-272-2683 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
