My name is Molly and I am the owner and founder of Boulder’s The Cleaning Fairies. In 1996, my daughter Kyla and I moved from Telluride to Boulder, Colorado, and I found myself looking for a job that would enable me to perform my duties as a single parent. Cleaning houses gave me the flexible schedule that I had been looking for! After a couple years of working solo, I had expanded from a one-woman show to an established business with three employees and about 50 clients.
The Cleaning Fairies, as we now know it, were born when a client of mine canceled and I decided to clean a neighbor’s house instead as a surprise gift. The client came home and exclaimed, “The cleaning fairy came!” The name stuck and has represented the company ever since!
Since then, we have continued to grow at a steady pace and can now boast that we have 22 Fairies and more than 1000 clients in Boulder and surrounding areas. We have also added a group of male “Ninjas” that handle construction cleans, power washing, light maintenance, and heavy-duty move out cleans. We are happy that we can now provide these additional services to our growing client base.
In 2008 the economy started going down and we became concerned not only about keeping our staff afloat during these troubled times, but also recognizing and thanking the community that had allowed us into their homes for the past decade. As a solution, The Cleaning Fairies coupled up with several senior centers to offer discounted services for those making the transition into assisted living. Since then, we have helped several seniors move in, move out, haul away their unwanted belongings and clean their homes to get them ready for sale or rent.
In addition to our partnership with the senior centers, The Cleaning Fairies now works with several organizations that assist mentally challenged or disabled members of the community and those that are seriously or terminally ill. We work with organizations such as There With Care, Imagine, and Mental Health Partners.
While the company has gone through several changes throughout the years, we have always been proud to call Boulder County our home. We use all green cleaning products that we supply, and only ask that we use your upright vacuum to avoid taking dander and pet hair from one home to the next We currently service Louisville, Lafayette, Gunbarrel, Superior, Niwot, Longmont, Lyons, Pinewood Springs, Riverside, Raymond, Allenspark, and Jamestown. We hope to continue to serve this and surrounding areas for years to come!
