Us

Homemaid Sustainable Cleaning is a locally owned and operated housecleaning service located just off the Burke-Gilman Bicycle Trail in Seattle. We strive to be as sustainable as possible.  This means that:
- We get ourselves and our equipment to every job via bicycle.
- We use only non-toxic, environmentally-friendly and people-friendly cleaning supplies.
- We minimize paper waste: All our invoicing is paperless, and we accept electronic payments via Paypal (we accept checks as well).
- We rely on word of mouth and the strength of our services in order to grow our client base.

If you are interested in our services please contact us, and we can schedule an initial consultation with you in order to provide an accurate estimate of cleaning time based upon your needs and the frequency of cleanings desired.

Consultations, Regular Cleanings, and Deep Cleanings

To start out, we like to schedule a consultation with you. This gives us the opportunity to come over to your home and meet in person. We will then be able to give you an accurate quote as to how long it will take to clean your place and discuss a schedule that will meet your needs. We will schedule extra time over the first few visits for deep cleaning. Getting your place in order at the start will help us maintain a nice level of clean. We like to break this process up so we can become acquainted with your home without charging you a large amount right away. After the first cleaning, we will send you a "progress report" with your bill to highlight all the areas we worked on and to notify you of what will be deep cleaned on the next visit. After a few cleanings, we'll put the deeper cleaning chores on a rotation so nothing is overlooked. Keeping the lines of communication open is very important to us. Feedback, good or bad is vital to maintaining a healthy relationship with our clients and the best way to ensure satisfaction.

About Us


The brainchild of a bicycle messenger and barista looking to do their own thing, Homemaid was founded in early 2009 by Thomas and Laurel Baucke. Owning our labor and living a low carbon lifestyle are values very dear to us, and Homemaid allows us to embrace these values.  We understand that at every job our reputation and the ongoing success of our business are at stake.  Therefore, we work extremely hard to keep our clients happy. It is our goal to create clean, healthy living environments for our clients without compromising our core values of sustainability and environmental stewardship at rates competitive with  traditional housecleaning services.  Our ongoing success has proven that profitability and sustainability are not mutually exclusive.
