What our Customers are saying about us ! When contacted for a bid, Lewis was the first to respond and scheduled an appointment the same day. During the initial consultation, Lewis detailed all services individually so there were no surprises. I hired LDJ Cleaning on a bi-weekly basis; they complete an exceptional job in a timely fashion. Top qualities: Personable, Good Value, High Integrity S.Eddidin – Aurora,IL LDJ is wonderful to work with! They are the consummate professionals making sure the job get done correctly the first time. Regardless of the size of the job, the cleaning staff ensures your satisfaction. LDJ Cleaning is definitely a company I have recommended to others! Top qualities: Expert, High Integrity, Good Value Woods – Auora,IL
I would highly recommend Lewis Johnson and LDJ services. I have known Lewis for a better part of a year now and he is a man of the highest integrity with a very personable approach. He provides a service that is by far the best I have ever received and I would recommend LDJ to anyone I know. He is a trusted colleague as well and I appreciate the professional relationship that we share." Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity L. Van Heil – St Charles, IL I have always been worried to hire a cleaning company because that is my personal space and I'm letting strangers into it, to basically go through every room. I found Lewis's group and had set up a 'meet and greet" with him. He was on time, very professional. He listen to exactly what I was looking for and was able to provide me great service. I have scheduled his team to come back out again. His group did a very well done job, I have never seen my bathrooms and kitchen so clean and I'm a clean freak. Their prices were also very reasonable. I would highly recommend using his service! Top Qualities: Personable, High Integrity, Value S. Fine – Plainfield,IL
Lewis and his crew are extremely professional and trustworthy. They are always on time and do a fabulous job cleaning my house. They are very reliable and friendly to work with. I was very impressed with his initial meeting where he presented his business overview and what his company does to clean. They are licensed and bonded which was very important. As a Real Estate Professional, I would highly recommend him to any client of ours. Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity K. Spangler – Naperville, IL Lewis first started to clean my house while I was undergoing chemotherapy and he was part of Cleaning for a Reason where I was able to get my house cleaned 4 times for free! Since finishing chemo I have kept Lewis as my housecleaner and am very grateful for his service. Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable G. Marciniak – Lisle,IL LDJ Cleaning has been a joy to work with, the cleaning team has proved to be above and beyond one of the best in the industry. Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity S. Johnson – Roselle,IL
THE INITIAL CLEANING VISIT Why is it different ? Why is it necessary? Why does it cost more? It would be virtually impossible for our staff to skip our standard first-time cleaning routine and try to carry on maintaining your home in a satisfactory clean fashion. There is a big difference between “old dirt “ and “new dirt”. If we don’t get rid of the old dirt no matter how hard we try simply removing the new dirt isn’t going to make things look sparkling fresh and clean. Before we can even begin to perform weekly or bi-weekly service on a home, there are usually a variety of first time tasks which require extra attention. It is not uncommon for our staff to spend almost twice as long on a first time cleaning than it takes us on a regular repeat visit. A typical initial cleaning -- getting the house in shape from top to bottom -- can cost 30 to 50 percent more than follow up visits.
Benefits of Choosing Us! All employees are insured and bonded. We use three professionally trained maids to clean your home; including a team leader. The same team will clean your home each time. The team leader does a complete walk through when the house is completed to make sure all items are done to your satisfaction. We supply all cleaning supplies and equipment needed to clean your home. If you have special products that you would like us to use we will use them. LDJ Cleaning Services tracks the house cleaning process in your home with planned and spontaneous walk through by the owner, Lewis Johnson Your “wants’ and “don’t wants” are always kept current with each cleaning. We are your professional, affordable residential house cleaning specialist. With our specialized housecleaning maid service, your home receives the attention it deserves. Our services are available - weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or one time cleanings.
