Anne, 2012- move in clean
Top Qualities: Great Results, Good Value, High Integrity
I booked Honey Bee Cleaning Services for a move in clean to my new home.
From what I experienced, Mellisa, the company owner, runs her business in a very professional and customer-oriented manner. Over the phone and via email she provided detailed information on her environmentally friendly, plant based cleaning products and services. I find it great that her service is very flexible: I told her how much I had budgeted for the clean, and we also determined what my cleaning priorities were.
Arielle, the cleaner, arrived on time, and I was glad to find all cleaning supplies were provided! Arielle made a very professional, honest, and friendly impression. She did a superb cleaning job in wiping all of the walls thoroughly, cleaning the bathroom and kitchen, and the floors of all rooms. Overall, she worked extremely efficiently! I felt very happy to be able to move into a clean, but at the same time chemical free home.
Calling Honey Bees Cleaning Services was definitely the right choice, and I can highly recommend it!

Gail, July 2012- Biweekly residential service
Mellisa Magnuson of Honeybee Cleaning did my cleaning for a couple of years, and she did an excellent job. She pays attention to details, and she uses healthy cleaning products. She is a personable, extremely trustworthy young woman and I would highly recommend her services.
Elizabeth, 2012- biweekly residential service
It has been a pleasure having Mellisa Magnuson and the girls from Honey Bee Cleaning Service do our cleaning for the past number of years. Mellisa is a wonderful, caring person who picks the best of staff. Every girl has been amazing, kind, friendly, and most of all, efficient! Years ago my daughter would follow Mellisa around and try to help clean. She has learned a lot from Mellisa and the girls at Honey Bee! Thanks, Mellisa!
Kara, 2012, passed Honey Bee Cleaner who moved up Island
My overall experience working for Mellisa at Honeybee Cleaning was an extremely positive one. Mellisa is so kind and caring to her employees and clients and goes above and beyond in providing high quality service to her clients. She always made me feel appreciated even for the smallest things. Honeybee Cleaning is flexible with hours and provides a fun and positive work environment for employees.
Wow Mellisa, you are just the best:) Thanks so much for being one of those awesome people in our world!! We need more love, understanding and nurture, and you could sure teach them!

Just wanted to say a big thanks for the work that you did . Taylor was moving back to Toronto and she was on a real timeline. You were so cool and professional and because we were on such a quick timeline and I was phoning long distance I so appreciated you calling me right back and when you did you were so business like that I got the facts right away and could make a decision with Taylor.
Taylor said your staff was awesome not just in the work that they do but in “how they operated” she said she could just briefly go in a room tell them what to do and they jumped on it right away with such efficiency. And all with GREEN products!!!!!!!!!

Residential service, Brianna Bruhl,
Living on the East Coast, it is hard for me to help my family when they are in need, without boarding a plane.
To help out my sister with an infant child, I hired Honey Bee cleaning. She raved about the service “HOW did they get the tub so white?”, as well as commented on how lovely the Honey Bee team members were. How wonderful that I can rest easy, knowing that I have given her more hours in the day to focus on her growing family. We will be using the Honey Bee service time and time again.

“The owners of the condo were delighted with the state in which we left it, thanks to the two Taylors — and just handed us back the damage deposit with their thanks.
As soon as I can take a breath, possibly later today, I will post. I think you offer a wonderful service and will certainly recommend you to others as well as use you myself. We left two of your business cards on the dining room table. You may well hear from another occupant of the condo in time.
I have ridiculously high standards for myself and others (the consequence of teaching so very many university and college students who had to be brought up to snuff, no doubt) and so when I see the same work ethic in others that I expect of myself, I am blown away. At my age with my physical stiffness and failing eyesight, it would have been near impossible for me to do in two days what they managed in two hours and with such courtesy and charm. Way to go, Mellisa.
With very best wishes,

“Honey Bee Cleaning was the perfect solution to our move-in needs! Alicia and Ashley performed a thorough deep-clean to every room – working an entire day without even a break (which I encouraged them to take)! Tomorrow we move into our new house without a thought for the slightest trace of dust or dirt – just the fun stuff! I am SO relieved I thought to have Honey Bee just take over this part of our move. We’ll be rested up for the moving-in of our furniture and belongings tomorrow, which will be demanding enough! Thanks so much to Honey Bee for giving us a fresh, sweet welcome to our new home!”
