IMPRESSED BY THE DILIGENCE
and professionalism I have used rent-a-wife home cleaning services in the past and have always been impressed by the diligence and professionalism of its staff.
I continue to be impressed
Laurel and her team have cleaned our house several times over the last few months, and I continue to be impressed. Laurel is responsive, professional, flexible and committed to doing a fantastic job! On each occasion, I was able to outline my priorities for cleaning in advance of the visit which was great. One time the team did a detailed (and much needed) cleaning of the kitchen, while another time was focused on getting the house ready for a party I was having. Last time was a general cleaning – what a wonderful feeling to come home Friday night to a spotless house! Laurel and her team do a phenomenal job and I am now going onto a monthly schedule.
PRE-MOVE APARTMENT CLEAN
I hired Laurel and her team to do a basement apartment cleaning. Laurel was great to deal with, she got back to me right away and despite being very busy, made every effort to accommodate my schedule. Her team was punctual, very hard working, efficient and positive. The apartment was gleaming and their attention to detail and thoroughness was impressive. For the price, it was an exceptional job. I highly recommend Laurel and her team and will be using their services again.
GOOD PRICE & GREAT SERVICE
Just simply amazing service and an amazing company. I have had a couple bad experiences before this but now will only use Rent-A-Wife Home Services. Good price and great service. I don’t usually comment on these sites but feel I should spread the word.
RENTAL UNIT CLEANING AND STAGING
I left Laurel a message on a Saturday evening together with several other companies. She was the first one to respond on a long-weekend Monday. By noon of the same day i had a quote for cleaning a rental apartment and the work was booked for Tuesday, sparing me from losing valuable time in listing the rental unit. Laurel has very high standards, cares about clients’ needs, is careful about details and knows where to put the finishing touches. She is quick to give a hand to her team that is hard-working, responsible and experienced in bringing out the best in a place. Would recommend Laurel and her team to any landlord and owner alike!
Post-renovation – major clean
Desperately needed help cleaning my home after a major 2 month renovation. Laurel and team were flexible enough to work around delayed construction time lines. They are a very experienced crew and cleaned much more than I would have thought of.
I have used Rent a Wife in Ottawa for several years for cleaning services at my home and that of other family members, especially in the home of my elderly Dad. Laurel, the Manager, is always very friendly, helpful and accommodating. She has very strict standards and the work done has always been of very high quality. We have had the opportunity to work with 3 or 4 different cleaners over the years and each one has been very hard working, reliable and very pleasant to deal with. Polly has done an excellent job in the past, and during the past year we have been working with Stephanie. I cannot say enough about how hard Stephanie worked – Dad’s house was shining when she was finished. She always did everything that we asked and many times went above and beyond what was required. She is a very pleasant person and was very respectful, polite and kind when dealing with my Dad and with me.
I have had very positive dealings with Laurel and her staff and would not hesitate to recommend their services to others.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL
We use Rent-a-Wife for our monthly house cleaning, and we love them. Their attention to detail when cleaning our house is outstanding, and we love that they can take on more or less in the house, depending on what we need. We would highly recommend the team at Rent-a-Wife if you need a house cleaner!
10 out of 10!
I’m a single guy with a 1 bedroom flat in a house. I have used Rent-A-Wife several times in the past, always with good results. Usually I call last minute
so have had several different cleaners. Kris, the owner has been friendly and helpful and asked the right questions as to what I am needing. The last time, had Ava who I didn't’t meet, but I left a key for her with a neighbour. I have 3 cats that shed copious amounts of fur and dirty footprints everywhere (they go outdoors, in and out, constantly). There was a bit of clutter which needed to be organized in order to clean. I am writing this recommendation because everything on the list was completed – vacuuming, floor washing, dusting, bathroom sink and toilet, kitchen counters, stove top, fridge doors including dirty magnetic seals, and wiping down window ledges. I arrived home at the end of the day to find my place peaceful and calm and spotless. Even the dirty light switches in the kitchen & bathroom had been cleaned as well as the outside glass on the aquarium (paw prints due to one curious cat). The clutter had been organized and many things put back where they belong. The skittish cat was sleeping in her favourite spot on the back of the sofa. I would recommend Rent-A-Wife because I feel like I can trust that what I have requested will be completed, and always with excellent results. I have enough stress in my life with long work days and when I find people that can reduce my stress, I am a happy camper. 10 out of 10!
The best piece of mind you can get!
We were given a gift certificate for Rent A Wife for Christmas and fell in love. Everything was so easy, from booking a time to feeling comfortable leaving the house. When we returned the house was better than I could have imagined. We will continue to use this amazing service.
The best piece of mind you can get!
I was thoroughly pleased with the work that was done. My cleaner was meticulous in her work. Both Laurel and my worker were pleasant and very easy to work with. I had to leave for a few hours and on my return my house was clean and spanking clean. I would definitely refer anyone who needs cleaning to this company.
Server for my Christmas Party
My rent-a-wife server was a Rockstar! Everything I could have asked for, and more. She set out all my prepared food and heated and served my hot appetizers. She made beautiful platters, cheese trays, Charcuterie boards, vegetable trays and dessert trays. She served my guests like they were family. My kitchen was completely clean at the end of my party. Outstanding!
I heartily recommend the services
Laurel at Rent-a-Wife was a godsend when I moved from Toronto to Ottawa last year. With very short notification in the midst of February winter storms, she arranged for someone on her team to come and bring their cleaning equipment and supplies to clean the home that I had purchased prior to the arrival of movers. My home was shiny clean and ready to move-in and unpack within days of my call. I’ve just used Rent-A-Wife services again this month for cleaning following roof leak remediation repairs. Laurel always takes a personal approach by first completing a site visit to determine scope and then follows up with her staff. I’ve always been impressed with Laurel’s professionalism, attention to detail, punctuality and knowledge. Laurel has amazing resources for all of your cleaning needs. I heartily recommend the services of ‘Rent-a-wife’ if you want focus on value for your dollar and peace of mind.
Absolutely in awe of Margaret’s work-fabulous, am so pleased. Laurel is exceptional-all my expectations were met and more. I will stay with them without a doubt. My place never looked so good!
I have been using Laurel’s Rent-A-Wife services on and off since 2002 for various tasks – general house keeping after an automobile accident, move-in and move-out cleaning and the work has been exceptional.
I can’t speak too highly about Laurel
As each time I call her for a task she has risen to the occasion to meet and most times exceed my expectations and in a most expeditious way.
HOUSE OF FOUR
We are always satisfied with the cleaning services provided by Rent A Wife Ottawa. We are a busy family: two young kids and two parents with full-time jobs. What a joy to come back to a house that is clean, tidy, and organized. We are happy to be serviced by the same employee, which makes things easier for everyone: she knows what we need, and can easily navigate our home to be efficient every single time.
Delighted…with home cloning that exceeded my expectations! Wow! Our home with the 3 of us, a shedding dog and a new baby left me overwhelmed and the house In need of a desperate clean. Laurel at Rent a Wife assessed our needs, provided this and then some! At my request she was even able to supply vacuum and cleaning supplies. The big deal was the cleaner she sent. Clearly loved to clean and she was thorough, professional, efficient and meticulous with a great eye for the usually overlooked spots and really attentive to details. Delighted to return to a freshly cleaned home! Will be a regular from now on!
FULL CLEANING BEFORE SELLING HOME
I wanted to have a thorough cleaning of my apartment before listing on MLS. I found Rent-A-Wife on Homestars and within a few days, Laurel was able to come by and give me an accurate estimate.
Laurel and her team
Did an excellent job cleaning the apartment and they even did it on a Sunday! There was an issue with the floor (no fault of the cleaners) and one of Laurel’s team was able to return two days later to finish the job. Great work — would hire again and would recommend.
I will absolutely use rent-a-wife again
I just moved into an absolutely filthy house (seriously, probably the dirtiest I’ve ever been in) and rent-a-wife came to the rescue! Within 7 hours they had transformed it into a clean, livable, lovely place to be in. I really liked that Laurel comes and does an in-person visit prior to the cleaning day to discuss the customer’s priorities and budget. The quote for services was very accurate and I definitely think I got my money’s worth! I will absolutely use rent-a-wife again.
HYDRO POSTED THAT WE WOULD BE WITHOUT ELECTRICITY
for most of my cleaning day! Disaster! Nope. Our cleaning lady came; she & I polished all the Christmas silver, and brass, and she washed the kitchen floor 2, scraped the edge of the baseboards, and then waxed it. We reorganized the sewing chest in the basement…by candlelight. Thanks Laurel, for your wonderful staff. I can't imagine what I would do without you. Ottawa, Ontario
AMAZING HOUSE CLEANING!
I used Rent a Wife in Ottawa for the first time a few weeks ago. Wow! My house had never been so neat and clean. Merci pour le travail impeccable! For sure, I’ll use Rent a Wife again! I’m a new fan now!
I have had very positive dealings
with Laurel and her staff and would not hesitate to recommend their services to others.
My usual cleaner
who does not belong to a professional cleaning service did not show up or reschedule the cleaning appointment … just a few days before Christmas holiday guests arrived. This was on a Friday! I contacted this company via Facebook and had an excellent house cleaner in Monday morning at 11am. Judy the cleaner did an excellent job and was extremely friendly and professional. Also the rates are very reasonable and I paid via e-transfer so very convenient!! Would highly recommend this professional company due to dependability and excellent work!
