What does your business do & what sets you apart from others in your industry?

We provide high quality residential and commercial cleaning services. A few things set us apart. Our patented 49 point checklist holds us accountable to what we do in each home every time. We follow up with every customer the day after their cleaning to see how everything went. Lastly, we guarantee all of our cleanings and will re-clean any area free of charge.

What is "super" about your business?  Why is it special?

We are an Oak Park based business that is very dedicated to the community. We have donated over $10,000 in cleanings since we opened to local non profits and school fundraisers.

If you could pick a superpower, what would it be?

Showing up, it sounds so simple, but it is often the hardest part. Once I've committed to something I always show up.

What is one thing you have had to do to "pivot" to survive the Covid shutdown?

Daily we provide our staff with hand sanitizer, gloves and masks. We have always used hospital grade disinfectants, but have added in priority cleanings of high touch point areas such as light switches, door knobs, chair arms, etc.

Name one thing you LOVE about our Chamber?

I love how I was embraced by the Chamber community as a 22 year old Black business owner. Many communities would not have accepted me or been cynical. The OPRF Chamber supported me since day one and it has been a pleasure serving on the Board of Directors for the past 6 years.

What's the weirdest thing you sell or offer? Or have there been any odd customer requests?

Nothing too crazy! People often ask for things that are outside of our scope of service like window cleaning or carpet steaming.

Name three of your favorite local businesses (besides yourself, of course!)
