We're more than just a house cleaning & maid service. Serving Coquitlam, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam and all of the Greater Vancouver area.



CLEAN…FRESH…and absolutely NO SMOKERS allowed! Spic ‘n Span house cleaning in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody as well as the surrounding areas in ANY home we clean do NOT smoke.

SMOKING is not synonymous with CLEAN! SMOKING is not permissible with our house cleaning service or what we promise to be a complete detailed clean.  You will NEVER have a SMOKING  Spic ‘n Span home enhancer.

Our primary customers live in the tri-cities consisting of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody.

These areas promote a fresh outdoorsy atmosphere where a large population enjoy the great outdoor walks around the many parks and walking trails provided.

These customers care about the products we use, the tools we use, and specifically like the fact that we avoid cross contamination of outside allergens and dander by not bringing in outside mops.

The mere idea of SMOKING BEFORE entering someone’s home is a detriment to those standards we promote.

SMOKE lingers on clothing and tools being brought into a customer’s home.  The cloths used will be contaminated and the presence of stale smoke will affect the clean as well as those with allergies.

Customers in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody call me daily telling me these stories and ask us to come in and “clear the air” so to speak.

We pride ourselves on arriving fresh, clean, and ready to offer the best in customer service and house cleaning in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody.

We present and represent ourselves with professionalism and without addictions and negative habits.

No Milly, Molly, or Maids Here

NO Milly, Molly, or MAIDS  Here!
There won’t be a single MAID found working at Spic ‘n Span House Cleaning Services in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody
I like the names Milly and Molly…just not MAID.
MAID  conjures up pictures of disheveled (Berta’s) who  would be on hands and knees with the soap bucket…scrubbing the tirelessly while being given direct orders.
I am proud to say that we have broken that stereotypical image of the person coming into your home to do the house cleaning.  We are “Home Enhancers” and we hold ourselves to a higher level of standards for house cleaning in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody.
We actually enjoy what we’re doing and get a great deal of satisfaction knowing we are making a real difference in how your home looks and how your time is freed up.
Unlike MAIDS we create a unique profile about you, your family, and what your household needs are.  For some, we simply do general house cleaning in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody.  For others spending quality time with our customers helping with organizational projects is on the agenda.
For most, we like to shake it up a little, incorporating general cleaning as well as paps (pick a project).  We also recognize seasonal chores that need tending and offer those services as well.
The  house cleaning services we offer surpass those of any MAID cleaning services in the Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody areas.
We are happy and proud to say we are NOT MAIDS, and moreover, our customers treat us like the independent contractors that we are and truly appreciate the our hard work and ethical standards we hold dear while providing  the best in  house cleaning services.
No Milly, Molly, or MAIDS here…but we are MERRY!

3 Things Home Owners Need To Know

3 things that homeowners need to know before hiring a cleaning company

3 Things Home Owners Need to Know


Make sure you check off these points from your list, before you hire any house cleaning  company!
1. Is the company I am considering insured?
2. Is the time frame reasonable for what I want done?
3. How many people will be in my home?

Before hiring a cleaning company to come into the privacy of your home there are some other things you, the owner, should take into consideration.
Not all companies look at your space (clean)independently.  Ask what their cleaning priorities are.
Ask questions about the companies cleaning policies and procedures.
Ask for current reviews and what review sites are used to promote the business. If you find some reviews that are not positive ask about the situation and how it was resolved.
Ask if the owner is an operator as well.  Most like  it when the owner themselves are “on the tools”, able to be on site, or make themselves available to you.
Ask the owner what makes them different from other companies.  Ask about the products and why they were chosen for the job.

We would love to hear your experience about hiring companies, please leave a comment below.
