We take pride in offering high-quality and professional green-cleaning services to homes and offices across Melbourne’s inner, northern and western suburbs.
Healthy for the Planet, Healthy for You
We only use environment and people-friendly cleaning methods, with natural products like vinegar and eucalyptus oil. These methods help ensure healthy indoor air and minimal impact on the environment (see our FAQs for more information about the benefits). We also try to source our supplies sustainably, using recycled or biodegradable equipment where possible.
Your Peace of Mind Matters
All our worker-owners are professionally trained, are employed under award wages and conditions, and the co-operative is fully insured for public liability and workcover. We own the business together, and only take-on new members who have passed a 6-month induction and training period. We are committed to offering the best to our clients, and always welcome feedback as to how we can improve.

Home cleaning is offered on a one-off, weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. If you have particular requests, we’ll do what we can to accomodate them. Please see below for a list of what’s included in a regular home clean and estimated prices.

Pricing Guidelines & Accessibility
Cleaning services are quoted at a flat rate based on an estimate of how long the job will take. Our minimum callout fee is $110, which covers 2 hours of cleaning (or one hour with two cleaners). Quotes are based on an hourly rate of $55 per hour (inclusive of GST), which may decrease with each consecutive hour. Depending on your situation, travel time and other factors may need to be taken into account. Initial or one-off cleans will generally be quoted at a higher cost than subsequent cleans, as they tend to take longer.
We recognise that people have different needs and budgetary constraints when it comes to cleaning and are committed to making our services as accessible as possible. We are therefore able to negotiate a more minimal clean for a lower price.
Pay it Forward – Community Funded Cleans for Pension Card Holders
We are working toward building a community fund so that we are able to offer discounted or free cleans to people who need our services. Clients are given the option of adding an additional “gift” when they pay for their cleaning service which will be placed into this fund. If you are interested in going on the waiting list for a Community Funded Clean, please get in contact.
