Our goal is to assist and empower our clients to have cleaner, tidier and more organised homes.
Hi! I am Marina Harte and I am the owner of Cleanify.
I started my career in real estate as I loved homes. My favourite aspect of real estate was making a home gleam prior to sale. From cleaning windows to rearranging the furniture, I just loved the process. Why can't we enjoy this type of environment always?
Later as a first-time mum, real estate was no longer a family-friendly career option. I cleaned my own home again and again until Marie Kondo's book landed in my digital lap.
I decided to clean casually to get out of the house. My micro-business grew and I decided I could really make a positive difference in people's lives and make this a career.
I am deeply passionate about my work and the people who I work for and with. As an employer, I understand work-life balance for my employees and want to ensure my staff are paid well and treated with dignity and respect.
It is of the utmost importance to deliver a quality service to my clients.
WHY I STARTED CLEANIFY
I have always valued a clean and organised home. I think there is a link between our environment and our state of mind. There is something nice about coming home to a clean house.
However, that's not always possible. When I had my son, I found it difficult to keep my home the way I liked it. I sought to find a cleaner that would assist me with the jobs that I just found I had little time for.
Many cleaners had no ABN, police clearance or insurance. Some did not show up. Most offered their services on a cash basis. Others that did have those things were just too big to help. The cleaning agencies offered cleaners that were in most cases untrained and unfairly paid while expected to perform an extraordinary number of tasks in an unreasonable time. I really wanted to change that.
My vision for Cleanify was reimagine cleaning. I also wanted to work with people that were fun, honest, reliable and positive. It was important that my staff had training and were paid fairly.
Cleanify operates locally and you will find that many of our processes make your experience with us positively different.
WHY CLEANIFY IS POSITIVELY DIFFERENT
You will find that our service is different. We cater our service to suit clients from a variety of backgrounds and abilities. Here are a few reasons why our service is unique.
Our staff are trained in our business
Our staff are selected, cleared and trained. We have policies and procedures for most cleaning practices. We work in pairs to get the job done faster.
We bring our own products and equipment. And they are good.
We use professional grade products/chemicals and equipment.
We work with your goals in mind.
Some of our clients require a full house clean, while others need help with their kitchen cupboards. Your service is tailored to you and the time that we have.
We like to meet you (and your home) before we get cleaning.
Before we clean we like to meet you and discuss your needs. All homes are different, as are our clients. We discuss your goals before we get going.
