Why Green Clean Maine?

We know you have a choice. Here are four reasons to choose us.

A Green Cleaning Service with Truly Sparkling Results

Green Cleaning Services with sparking resultsMaybe your are looking for a green cleaning service. Or maybe you just want a clean home from a company you can trust, and you’re a bit skeptical that this “green cleaning” thing really works. Either way, we’re here to help, and you will love the results you get with our service.

That’s the beauty of it – sparkling results without chemicals. You give up nothing in the way of clean, but you are left with a healthier home.

Effective, Handmade, Non-Toxic Cleaning Formulas

Green Cleaning Services handmade productsMany cleaning services claim to be green. We take it a step further – we’ve developed our very own green cleaning formulas. Why? Because the green cleaning products we bought off the shelf either weren’t powerful enough, or didn’t seem very “green” to us.

Our founder, Joe Walsh, began experimenting with making his own formulas in his tiny apartment way back in 2007. He found that these handmade formulas worked better than anything he could buy. Since then, we’ve refined these formulas over 15 years and thousands upon thousands of cleanings.

Our cleaning solutions are still handmade, only now in our workshop in Portland. We use ingredients you might find in your pantry: Ingredients like baking soda, vinegar, plant-based detergents and essential oils. They are formulated to be gentle on your home’s surfaces while being powerful enough to produce professional results. And of course, with no harsh chemicals, these simple yet powerful green cleaning formulas are safe for others in your home – and pets, too!

Clients often mention the signature lemongrass scent in our formulas as something they look forward to with each service – and the relief that scent brings – because they know their home is clean!

A Helpful, Professional Team You Can Trust

Green Cleaning Services Team

When we seek out new cleaning team members, we look for folks who are helpful, trustworthy and easy to talk to. Of course we perform thorough background checks and check references, but our process is much more than that. We spend hours with each prospective hire, getting to know them and what drives them. Are they motivated to help others? Are they warm and engaging? Would I freely invite them into my home? Do they appreciate and respond well to feedback about their work? Can they focus on the details? And this may seem obvious, but “Do they like to clean?”

For the first few weeks any new hire is with us, they work one-on-one with a Green Clean Maine Trainer, who guides them through our Green Clean Maine Method Training Guide. Our training is intensive, hands-on and covers all the basics of the technical aspects of cleaning a home. We also train on customer service, time management, critical thinking skills and more. Our green cleaning training is holistic – it teaches our crew members not only how to clean, but how to provide an experience to our clients.

Many of our staff report a significant increase in confidence and a feeling of independence after completing our training program. And many clients rave about the service these incredible new professionals are providing. We couldn’t ask for a better outcome.

When you use our service, everyone you’ll interact with – from your cleaning staff member to the person who responds to your texts, emails and phone calls – has completed this training and has extensive experience cleaning homes. We all know this work well and are passionate about the positive difference a consistently clean home can make!

  • I love Green Clean Maine! I know my husband already left a review but they are so great it merits two haha. They not only leave our condo sparkly and full of fresh, lemongrassy goodness but they are so sweet and friendly (and funny!). We both work from home and have been home most times they've come to clean, and it's always a joy to have them here. They really seem to have fun when they're working and it's just wonderful to know that we're supporting a business that cares so much about its employees and that its employees enjoy their jobs. <3
