First impressions are everything.  An average buyer forms an impression within the first 15 seconds of entering a house (or viewing it on the internet).  We look at your home through the buyers’ eyes and give you our candid professional assessment. 

Statistics show that homes that have been professionally staged sell 50% faster and increase the selling price by 6 - 10%.  A modest investment in a home staging company can result in an outstanding gain!




We make it easy to get on the schedule right away! For general housekeeper cleaning services at a moment's notice, ask for our Interview Cleaning. For that first cleaning we give you a new client discount of $30 off, to say thanks for trying our services! This also helps keep the cost down for those who may be hesitant to get the extra home making help due to cost. With this cleaning, you can expect the entire General Housekeeping experience, and you can add any priorities you see fit. We follow up with a quote of your flat rates going forward.


We would love to get you on a rotation once the first cleaning is completed, pending your satisfaction of course! Please note - these slots are based upon our availability.


Unlike most other housekeeper or cleaning services, post construction cleanup is not an 8-4, Monday thru Friday job. However, the job must be finished before we will clean!

Do you have a special occasion, but can't find the time to take care of everything?

Let  the AYS Party Helpers take care of the work-and leave the hosting to you. The AYS Party Helpers will allow you to relax and enjoy your guests while our fully trained staff sees that everything is running smoothly.

We offer pre-party set-up, service with a smile, and post-party clean up.

We will heat and pass around appetizers, prepare coffee, tea and punch, continually bus so your guests won't have to be bothered with dirty dishes, cut and serve the cake, staff and keep the buffet table looking good or, if required, serve a formal sit down dinner. In addition, throughout the event we take the trash out so there are no over flowing cans around.

We also make sure your leftover food is put away in zip bags or containers in the refrigerator. Finally, we clean up the kitchen and the dining area. When you wake up in the morning, everything will be all cleaned up and you won't have to do anything but enjoy the day!


Moving can be a heavy experience! With all of the tasks that have to be addressed when moving, you may get overwhelmed.  Cleaning up before you move in or even before you move out may be too time consuming.  And, let's face it, your time is valuable!  Why not let AYS Cleaning do the cleaning for you?  We can clean the entire kitchen from top to bottom.  Clean & sanitize the washrooms.  Dust all of the horizontal & vertical surfaces from high to low.  Spot clean the walls, switch plates, sills and fixtures.  We'll leave you with a clean, fresh environment without all the hassle.
