Green Sweep was established in 2006 by a local Guelph resident who had worked for other ‘mainstream’ cleaning services and found the harsh chemicals used in traditional cleaning products that we buy at the store – were making her sick. With growing sensitivity and awareness of the dangerous chemicals many of us use every day – on surfaces we use for bathing, eating, and sleeping – she saw a possible niche and decided she could do it a different, and better way. She was right – there was lots of demand for a locally owned, completely green, cleaning company – and Green Sweep has grown ever since.
In 2022 there was a change in ownership and Green Sweep Canada continues to grow, with around 200 commercial and residential clients across a wide geographical area.
We have high staff retention and high customer retention – our goal is to sustain an environmentally and socially responsible company. To that end, staff are paid higher than the industry average and are compensated fairly for the very hard work they do. We work as a team, and occasionally play as a team too! Clients notice that staff go out of their way to deliver hands-on and personal customer service.
Part of what i like about greensweep is the excellent communication and professional approach. that's what we've always lacked with housecleaning services.
Before taking over the company in 2022, Eva was with Green Sweep in a variety of roles, learning the business from top to bottom and managing operations for over 2 years before occupying the position of Owner/Operator. Eva has a passion for the environment and the health of the world around us. She feels confident and proud knowing that the products Green Sweep uses with clients are the same products she uses in her own home. Eva is a long time resident of Guelph - this company is one way she contributes to creating a better world for her children and grandchildren.
