Milwaukie Residential Cleaning Services
More About Our Residential Cleaning Services
It’s a random Thursday morning in Milwaukie. Mostly cloudy, moderate winds out of the East, heavy traffic on The Banfield. The kids are off to school, the stains they left over the past few months are still on the carpet. The windows are grimy. Rosie’s nose and paw prints are on the sliding back door and a bird dropping on the outside of a second-story window has been taunting you for months. The driveway is streaked with a mud/algae compound, and to top it off, Portland lost to Los Angeles last night. At home.
At 8:51, a sleek, black Sprinter van pulls up. A friendly, experienced technician in uniform knocks on the door five minutes ahead of schedule. Some of life’s little problems are about to meet their match. You have scheduled interior and exterior window cleaning, carpet cleaning for three rooms and a hallway, and some pressure washing for the driveway and front walk. Relax. We’ve got this.
Since 1998, Clean Services Northwest has been transforming residences in the Milwaukie area from grime to shine and soiled to sublime. We specialize in window cleaning, carpet cleaning, gutter cleaning, pressure washing, and more. One stop shopping, so to speak. It just makes sense, doesn’t it? Rather than calling three or four providers come, each offering a service, why not save time and money by having Clean Services Northwest do it all? Why not have Clean Services Northwest do it right? Not only are you saved the hassle, you’ll get a multiple service discount, saving you some money.
Most of us wear glasses at some point, be it for reading, by prescription, or to filter the sun and look devastatingly cool. If your glasses are dirty, smudged, streaked, and distracting, do you just leave them on? Of course not. You clean them. Why do we accept the same from our windows? Clean windows make a difference. They put a twinkle in your eye, a pep in your step. If properly cleaned, they make the world a brighter place. Unfortunately, not everybody cleans them properly. Windows are meant to be cleaned with a sponge and squeegee, not Windex and rolls of paper towels. Clean Services Northwest technicians have mastered the art of streak-free professional window cleaning. It’s something that takes practice and pride. If you’ve never had your windows professionally cleaned, we would be honored to introduce you to a whole new standard of living! Special situations such as storm windows, difficult to access windows, or mineral stained glass? It’s what we do! Clean Services Northwest technicians are the window cleaning experts.
There are some things that nobody notices until they’re not doing their job. Long snappers in football are one example; another are gutters. They aren’t given a second thought until a replica of Multnomah Falls is cascading over the miniature levees, scattering bark dust, ruining flower beds, and flattening beautiful haircuts. We’re blessed to have so many beautiful trees here in the Milwaukie area, but with them come leaves that render gutters useless. Cleaning those leaves out is not just tedious, it can be dangerous. Let us climb up there with our specialized ladders and equipment and do it for you. It’s what we do every day, not once a year. We’re used to it.
If you have carpets, it makes sense to have them regularly cleaned. We don’t want to gross you out by suggesting you think about all of the dirt and filth that a sponge-like, fibrous material covering your floor might retain, but think about all of the dirt and filth a sponge-like, fibrous material covering your floor might retain! Fortunately, Clean Services Northwest has the most modern, dynamic carpet extraction machines available, both portable (for condominium units accessible only by elevator) and truck-mount machines. Not only that, but our technicians have the expertise to get the most from this top of the line equipment. We are also knowledgeable with regard to chemicals and solutions, offering non-toxic, effective products for use in the extraction process. It’s about both safety and sanitization. Scotch Guard application, pet stain removal, odor control, upholstery cleaning, and service with a smile. That’s Clean Services Northwest.
It is so much easier to keep those carpets clean if the walkway into your home is clean as well. We are ready to remove all of the algae, moss, dirt, and other debris from the hard surfaces surrounding your home using state-of-the-art pressure washing equipment. As a primary service or as an add-on to having already been there, a little pressure washing is inexpensive and makes a world of difference. Don’t forget to ask about it!
Clean Services Northwest is licensed and insured for every scope of work that we perform. Our employees undergo thorough training, are background checked and pass a minimum experience threshold before working alone on residential projects; plus, we hire great people! Furthermore, do you have a special request, such as changing high lightbulbs, removing a stray Frisbee from the roof, or something of the like? Just ask. Customer satisfaction is our goal.
Clean Services Northwest performs its work in every community with a 20-mile radius of Milwaukie’s center, and we commonly travel further for a slight charge. If you reside between Vancouver and Wilsonville to the North and South, and Hillsboro and Troutdale to the East and West, you are within our normal area of operation.
So…2:06 that same afternoon. High pressure pushed up and it’s now partly sunny, a light breeze from the South, traffic is moderate, the afternoon rush is building. The kids will be home soon. They will recognize that something is a bit different. The neighbors will certainly notice. The carpets are spotless, shoes off! The windows shimmer, bathed in the fresh sunlight. The driveway and walk look like freshly poured concrete and newly laid masonry. That smiling technician in the sleek black van has just rounded the corner and disappeared out of sight. Hope is renewed, and why not? Easy victories all around. Life is good.
More About Our Commercial Cleaning Services
What kind of experience does Clean Services Northwest have in the commercial property maintenance field? To give you an idea of Clean Services’ longevity, our first major account was Blockbuster Video, cleaning windows and carpets at all of their Oregon, Washington, and Northern California locations. That was in 1998. Since then, Clean Services Northwest has provided superior property maintenance to hundreds of companies and organizations in the region. Leading international companies, such as Nike; world-class universities, such as Lewis and Clark and The University of Oregon; venerable property management firms, such as Kin Living, Mainlander, and American Building Management; and many city, county and state governments all rely on Clean Services Northwest for their property maintenance needs.
One facet of property cleaning and maintenance in which Clean Services Northwest is proud to be a leader is in high rise window cleaning. While it is by no means all we do, it is our claim to fame, or feather in our cap, if you will. If you look at the Milwaukie skyline and the buildings that shape it, at one or many times during the past 18 years we have hung from the sides of most of them cleaning windows. We perform the great majority of our high rise work in a bosun’s chair, preferring the efficiency and safety it offers compared to other methods. Word of our expertise seems to have spread, as recently we have been frequently contacted by architectural firms to provide input on anchor points and other technical information. This work is certainly not for everyone. Clean Services Northwest is fortunate to have a skilled, experienced, safe crew that we depend on. Simply put…they are the best.
While high rise window cleaning work may be more exciting, our ground/low rise window cleaning crew is equally skilled and significant to our winning team. If the high rise crew are the quarterbacks on the squad, the ground crew is the offensive line…getting it done in the trenches. Often thankless, rarely glorified, but critical to the success of the team. Our ground/low rise crew routinely works with ladders, lifts, short poles, long poles, water-fed poles, and other types of specialty equipment to get the job done safely and correctly. The work is often physically challenging (if you’ve maneuvered a 40-foot ladder for a day, you know), and requires thinking on one’s feet to solve problems. Fortunately, our crew is up to the challenge. Whether inside or out, our ground/low rise crew has one goal in mind: completing the job safely and to your satisfaction.
Is there anything more oddly satisfying than freshly pressure-washed concrete? For you…perhaps; but for us, it ranks right at or near the top! Clean Services Northwest has invested significantly in the latest and greatest pressure washing equipment and we love putting it to work! Hot water capabilities, water reclamation equipment, an obscene amount of hose, and just about every tip you can imagine. We’re ready to tackle your projects. We pressure wash drives, walks, the sides of buildings, roofs, fleets of vehicles, you name it! We even pressure wash from bosun’s chairs while repelling and/or aerial lifts. If you can dream it, we can take four or five thousand pounds per square inch of water to it (safely and responsibly, of course).
Speaking of flowing water, are the gutters on your building(s) functioning as they should? If so, probably not for long around here. Thanks to our climate and all of the lovely trees that we live amongst, gutters generally require annual attention with regard to cleaning. You’re in luck, gutter cleaning is another Clean Services Northwest scope of work. We hand scoop them, minimizing the mess, and we use ladder standoffs, ensuring no damage is done to the gutters or your building. We always rinse any mess created by the cleaning process, but we offer detailing service, or whitening, if needed. This is sure to provide a noticeable facelift to your façade.
So the outside is looking fantastic. The windows are shiny, the gutters are clear and clean, the walkways are bright and crisp. What do you say we go in and take a look at those carpets? Could they use some attention? We are ready to make the difference that you have been looking for. Clean Services Northwest has both portable and truck mounted carpet extraction machines. This affords us the ability to perform work in virtually any type of property. We also perform tile cleaning and other floor care. Do you have a unique request with regard to your floor care needs? Just ask. It’s likely that we can accommodate it.
Clean Services Northwest is large and experienced enough to have seen a plethora of maintenance situations and solutions. We’re also nimble enough to adapt to your needs and small enough to care. If your commercial building or facility needs something a bit out of the ordinary with regard to cleaning or maintenance, please do not hesitate to see if we can provide a solution to the problem. Cleaning windows after construction, mineral deposit removal, dryer vent cleaning, graffiti removal, holiday lighting, fleet washing, and moss abatement on roofs are all examples of seldom thought of, but real-world needs and requests with which we are familiar. It can never hurt to ask.
Lastly, know that Clean Services is licensed and insured to perform every scope of work that we advertise. As a company, we believe whole-heartedly in doing things the right way. We belong to a number of trade organizations, and are particularly active with the International Window Cleaning Association. It just makes sense. Safety, in particular, is never compromised. We are very proud to say that our commitment to safety has thus far paid off, as our safety record as a company is stellar.
Thank you for taking the time to investigate our company a little more closely. We would like to reiterate that Clean Services Northwest is ready to exceed your expectations with quality, safety, and professionalism that you will be excited to recommend.
