What does being a housecleaning company mean to Green Cleaning Seattle? It means a lot. It means striving to create an environment for their clients where they are engulfed in a state of bliss after their home is cleaned. They want to make their clients say "aaaahhhhh..." as soon as they step back into their house. That is what Otium means: leisure time in which a person can enjoy eating, playing, resting, contemplation, etc. The Green Cleaners provide “Otium-Maid Services,” which allow their clients to regain some of their own leisure time, and to have the space and time for peaceful moments in their lives.
Since their inception in 2008, Green Cleaning Seattle has grown from one employee to 40, and their ethical standards have remained high throughout. They work hard to be a caring employer for their staff, to do great quality work for their clients, and to expand on "what it means to be green." Their office is solar-powered, and their laundry-to-landscape system ensures that they don't waste water. Not only is their space a great place to work, but it is also a home to a colony of bees and a flock of chickens. To circumvent Seattle's traffic and parking shortcomings, Green Cleaning has recently invested in a fleet of electric-assist cargo bikes that help their Green Cleaners get from clean to clean. Their business is built on the simple belief that seemingly small choices can have a huge ripple effect for good in our lives and our world. Sustainability is at the heart of everything they stand for.
Green Cleaning Seattle is proud to boast about their mission and work. All of the products they use to clean with are bio-degradable, non-toxic, and fragrance-free. Being a fragrance-free company is a particularly important mission to us right now. New research has shown that synthetic fragrances are loaded with toxic components that can interfere with hormones and can cause physical ailments ranging from contact dermatitis to cancer. 95% of these toxic components are derived from petrochemicals, or fossil fuels.
