Over time, their brand of personalized cleaning came into high demand, and the gals moved their business to Hampton Roads in 2006 in response to the area’s need for a band of highly professional cleaners to take down dirt's filthy regime. In the years since their move eastward, the fully bonded and insured company has curated a staff of expertly trained cleaners, each of whom undergoes a rigorous background check and takes pride in attention to detail and the ability to coax dirt from even the most begrimed of surfaces.
