About us

Family Owned and Managed since 1985

ability-office-cleaning-crew-1I started this family business in 1985 to fill the needs of a premium cleaning service with personal attention to the needs of our customers. Although we have grown well beyond the point of doing all the cleaning ourselves, we strive to continue our reputation of high standards and friendly service through close job supervision, inspections, and regular service calls.

Trained Experienced Servicemen

We have nine experienced cleaning crews.  All of our office cleaners are trained by myself, regardless of earlier experience. All new hires undergo background checks. I make sure that each cleaner has a professional attitude and take pride in his work. They are paid more than the average janitor because they take full responsibility for their cleaning, and it shows. Turnover is very low.

Green Cleaning 

We utilize the latest technology in tools and chemicals for environmentally friendly and high-efficiency cleaning. This includes non-toxic chemicals, microfiber cloths, and HEPA filter vacuums. 

Security and Trust are Foremost

Each cleaner must prove his integrity before he is given a key to any client’s building. We are proud to introduce them to you and would like you to know them as well. We intend for you to be completely comfortable with the person who is in your office after business hours.
In addition, we understand the importance of security. We handle keys and locks with care. We lock the doors when cleaning inside and let no one inside (unless they have their own keys). We are familiar and conscientious with the use of many security and alarm systems. We are also bonded and insured to further protect our clients.

Long Term Relationships

We would like the chance to engage in what we hope to be a lasting business relationship with you. We like this business and are in it for the long run. Several of our clients have been with us for over 10 years. Our intention is that every client be so pleased with our service that they freely recommend us to new prospective clients. References are available from many of our professional, medical, and business office clients.

“Ability Maintenance Service has been our cleaning service for over four years. They have been consistent, reliable and maintain high cleaning standards. Ability Maintenance does a complete janitorial service for us including carpet cleaning, window cleaning, restroom cleaning and delivery of restroom supplies. They are professional and reliable. We are happy to highly recommend them to anyone needing office cleaning services.”

“My company has employed the services of Ability Maintenance regularly since 2001. I own an audio post-production facility that houses costly and delicate electronic recording equipment. The janitorial crew cleans my recording rooms professional and with the utmost care. I have been vary pleased with the thoroughness and efficiency demonstrated by Mr. Temps’ employees, and I plan to continue using his services for as long as I am in business.”

“It is such a huge relief to have your company clean our offices!  I used to get complaints on a weekly basis from various staff about our old cleaning company. I would correct them and it would be good for a week or two and then the cleaning would fall out again. I didn’t realize how much attention I had on it until I hired your company. You have been cleaning our offices for three months and I have not had one complaint from any of the staff. All medical rooms are cleaned as agreed upon in the contract and it has made my job much easier. I can now concentrate on expanding the company rather than getting the office cleaned correctly!  Thank you so much!”
