AspenClean – The Day Someone Else Cleaned My House (& it was amazing!)

2019 has been a YEAR already! I have been crazy busy at my day job, Alivia has had a ton of events and activities and this blog has kept me on my toes. There’s been a lot of running home, dropping things on the kitchen table and heading straight to bed. Unfortunately, that meant that my house was suffering, like *really* suffering. We had time to keep on top of the usual stuff. Laundry, dishes, sweeping and vacuuming, but the deep cleaning was put to the wayside.

And I HATED it. And I felt guilty. And I felt like a bit of a failure. And And And. Mom guilt was REAL around here.

I’m a clean freak by nature, but when it came down to the nitty gritty I just haven’t had time lately and it was starting to wear on me a lot. I’d feel guilty that I didn’t have time to scrub the tub, or time to dust the entire house, or really any of the deep cleanings I normally do, my mom guilt came in full force this year. Enter my sanity and lifesaver that honestly could not have come at a better time for this busy mom.

Full disclosure, I live in a tiny 2 bedroom suite in an older house. We love our tiny home, complete with mountain views and extra storage, but it gets DUSTY and dirty way too quickly and I was about done with how far it had gone. When the Healthy Family Expo team asked if we’d like to try out a home cleaning service from AspenClean, they didn’t have to ask me twice. Someone would clean my house for me!? I AM IN.

If you’re not familiar with AspenClean, they are one of the best eco-friendly cleaning services for both residential and commercial spaces in Metro Vancouver, Calgary & Toronto. They believe that everyone can have a spotlessly clean home without sacrificing on using good ingredients. AspenClean never brings harmful chemicals into your home and thanks to being passionate about the environment, they also make sure their services have a low environmental impact.

I’m no stranger to the AspenClean brand myself, we’ve been using their all-natural cleaners and microfibre cloths in our home for years since discovering them at one of the first expo’s we attended, however, this is the first time I’ve tried their cleaning service and you guys….. I didn’t want to let them leave.

Scheduling our cleaning was super easy, fill out the estimate page with how big your home is, what extras you’d like cleaned (highly recommend the fridge and stove clean!) and what day/time works best for you and the team confirms your request pretty quickly. After we filled everything in, we had a time/day within 2 days and I started to get a little bit excited. I pre-cleaned a little bit before the team showed up, making sure that surfaces were cleared and items picked up off the floor so they could really get in a do a deep clean. It’s not a necessary step but I felt like it gave the team more time to get to the stuff I really haven’t had time to do.

When our team arrived I was amazed to find a team of 4 amazing women who immediately asked what my priorities were, I mentioned that dusting + the cobwebs in a couple of corners bothered me the most and off they went. One cleaner tackled my kitchen and I may have cringed a bit at how long she spent cleaning my stove, but when she was done it SPARKLED. She cleaned parts of my stove that I can’t remember the last time I got to them. I may have yelled at hubby to clean it up every time he uses it because she made it look that good!

Another cleaner tackled the bedrooms, dusting, and fluffing and wiping everything down. She even wiped down the walls which I honestly can’t remember the last time I also did this! We do live in a small home so we make do with storage solutions, we do have a couple of small shelves around and the AspenClean team was amazing at making sure that they gently moved and replaced items as they cleaned around them. Once they were done tidying the rooms it was on to vacuuming, sweeping and mopping. 3 things I never get to do on the same day, ever.

I was so impressed with how seamlessly they worked as a team. Each woman had a focus an eventually they came together to do the final things as a team. I was worried it would feel a bit awkward being home with them running around but honestly, they made me feel completely at home (hah, pun intended) and told me a little bit about themselves as we crossed paths throughout the house.

Definitely one of the heroes of the entire visit was the AspenClean products themselves. Your team arrives with everything they need to clean your home from the cleaners, cloths, mops, vacuum and random tools you probably never knew you needed until you see them in action! The best part is, you can actually purchase these products to have at home as well!

We’ve shared a bit about how we are an asthma household so scents and products that we use in our home absolutely matter as they can trigger an asthma attack in our kiddo. AspenClean products are excellent for both allergy and asthma sufferers as they are free from dyes, fragrance, SLS/SLES, ethoxylated alcohols and petroleum (did you know this was all in your regular cleaners!?). Instead, AspenClean products boast being 100% natural with organic essential oils tackling the cleaning. All the products are also made IN Canada and have all the ingredients clearly listed both on the packing AND on the websitetransparency on ingredients is huge in our house!

Oh, and AspenClean makes it ridiculously easy for you to tackle stuff at home with matching colour coded microfibre cloths so you don’t have to wonder which one you used in the bathroom in the cleaning bucket.

The cleaners were at my house for just over 2 hours all together and I tried to pay close attention to how they were using the products, I didn’t notice a ton of “elbow grease” needing to be used and the products tackled most of the dirt and grime without needing to go scrub crazy. Though, for the super tough jobs, I did see them pull out the SuperScrub Powder who seems to be the superhero of the day in my kitchen.

Once the flurry of cleaning started to slow down the cleaners meticulously packed up all of the cloths and products they used and I notice a distinctly clean smell throughout my house. My bathroom was shining, Alivia’s shelves had been tidied (even putting some “special” treasures on display), my windows were sparkling and most importantly my asthma did NOT show up to say hello like it usually does with a full day of cleaning with chemical cleaners.

Overall, I was so impressed with our clean and miss them every single day that my family messes the house up, but even if I wasn’t 100% satisfied, AspenClean would have made sure we had a positive experience with their 100% satisfaction guarantee. Yep, you read that right.

We absolutely guarantee your 100% satisfaction and promise your home will be sparkling clean and fresh. If you are not 100% satisfied, please contact AspenClean within 24 hours of your service and we will re-clean your home at no extra charge. – AspenClean FAQ

AspenClean clean estimates factor in that the entire team is carefully trained, bonded and insured when they enter your home. Having seen them in action I definitely feel the price was worth it, though it may not be something that I could regularly consider based on budget. I am definitely already planning to have them come back in a couple of months to do a Spring Clean (perfect for allergy and asthma sufferers!) &  deep clean and help me keep on top of the things we were letting slide. In the meantime, I can use the AspenClean eco-friendly products around my home and still enjoy the safe, healthy and *clean* home feel.

If you’re ready for some help around the house, ready to let go of a little bit of parent guilt and let someone else take the reigns, I highly recommend calling the AspenClean team. Not only will your home be sparkly and smell clean and beautiful, but you’ll also get a much-needed and much-deserved break. Head over to to see if your home is in their service area and get ready to also have hotel folded toilet paper (legit Alivia’s favourite part of the whole visit).
