Hiring an Atlanta Cleaning Service – What Price is Right?

Price Value Scale Concept

There are several hundred cleaning services in the Metro-Atlanta area, all claiming to be the best.

As Atlanta’s oldest independently owned home cleaning service, I know our rates are not the cheapest. Do your own research and you’ll find that we fall somewhere in the middle of the price range.

There are many good reasons to consider the quality of the service you contract for, rather than just price. You are, after all, allowing “strangers” into your home  – where you and your family sleep, and where you keep your valuables.

Sponge & Sparkle is a well-respected company with well trained, loyal employees.  While the industry average turnover is 3 to 4 months, our employees stay with us for 5 years. Quite a few of our employees have been with us for over 10 years.

We carry liability and workers’ compensation insurance and pay our fair share of required taxes and fees.

We thoroughly screen our employees­—people you are allowing into your private space. They must pass our background checks and drug tests, and complete our comprehensive training program. After they successfully complete our training program, we compensate them fairly and provide benefits.

Our pricing structure enables us to function as a successful, stable business with a loyal customer base. This way, if one of our employees has an injury in your home, breaks a valuable, or files for unemployment, we’re able to handle it.

Interestingly enough, the people who never complain about our prices are our current customers. As with most things in life, you get what you pay for.

What our Customers Say

Sponge and Sparkle are doing a great job and helping me live in a much cleaner home. I think the rate is reasonable and I leave a 20% tip. A few cleaners came out and did not do a great job; however, the manager’s gave me a free cleaning and were nice about it. They sent someone who did a very good job so now I have a sweet, friendly cleaner that is always scheduled with me now. I have the place totally neat so they can clean. I like coming home to a freshly made bed and garbage taken out.

Consistent, Reliable, Well Managed

They’ve been doing my house for several years. The teams change up, but they are all provide good service. They are always on time, never miss an appointment, and are friendly. I could probably have an individual (instead of a commercial group) for less, but I feel like this is so well-run and reliable that it is worth it. Also, I get the sense that they treat their employees well, which matters a lot to me.

Excellent Company and Service

We have used Sparkle many times over the last several years and they always exceed our expectations. Great customer service and very reasonable prices.
