In 1976, a young mother named Brenda Young began cleaning houses in Portland, Maine, to help make ends meet. Little did she know, her humble beginnings would lay the foundation for a successful commercial cleaning company that would thrive for decades to come.
Brenda’s Best Cleaning wasn’t incorporated until 2008, but the company’s roots can be traced back to those early days when Brenda’s determination and hard work helped her build a small, one-woman residential cleaning business. Over the years, the company expanded, eventually employing multiple staff members and securing long-term contracts with a focus on reliable commercial cleaning.
In 2014, Brenda passed away, and her daughter, Danielle, stepped in to continue her mother’s legacy. Danielle officially took over as owner in 2019 and shifted the company’s focus entirely to commercial clients in Maine, serving areas from Kittery to Belfast. Today, Brenda’s Best Cleaning boasts a team of 15 dedicated employees, including three long-time managers, all committed to providing exceptional cleaning services.
The Trials and Tribulations of Covid-19
In early 2020 we all experienced a huge change in how we live our lives. At Brenda’s Best Cleaning, we saw a huge growth in demand for disinfection cleaning services and a corresponding drop in the need for regular cleaning of the unused office spaces and facilities that we’d been focused on.
While we saw changes happen all over our society, we took the opportunity to improve our processes and educate ourselves and others. In fact, we participated in a free mask drive to help people get access to the then-scarce PPE. This is just one more way we live up to our mission to support our community.
