What our Customers Say
Sponge and Sparkle House Cleaning Services
I have been using this agency for 3 plus years and have been delighted not just with their good work and professionalism but how personable their employees are at all times. They are able to accommodate emergencies including cancellations which I am sure puts them at a hardship but do so with a smile and with compassion. Please try them and use their detailed cleaning services at least once and you will be in for a treat. More importantly they use environmentally friendly products that is a huge plus for me.
Reliable Cleaning Service
My family has used sponge and sparkle for years. They are reliable, flexible and professional. They are excellent as both a regular, recurring cleaning service and willing to do custom cleanings as well.
I have been a client of Sponge & Sparkle for almost 15 years. They do an outstanding job, have wonderful customer service and a very friendly and professional crew. They also are extremely trustworthy (they’ve had the key to my home since the beginning). I can highly recommend the company!
