About Us

Melissa Hammer and her team of bonded and insured cleaning staff have a great reputation for going the extra mile when it comes to both residential and commercial cleaning contracts for homes and offices located in the North Okanagan area.

BUT it wasn’t always as easy as calling Girls Gone Green to find a great cleaner in the area.

As with many of the best ideas this one was  born out of a bottle of red wine, and an old-fashioned gab session.  Shocking we know, but that’s how it happened.  Just a couple of girlfriends sharing their housewifely woes. Seems Melissa had been having a heck of a time finding and keeping a reliable housekeeper so yet again she was on the hunt.

Now her girlfriend, being a recent runaway from the big city and an enthusiastic business owner herself thought”Really, how hard can this be? ” and so she started asking a few questions about where her friend had been finding her not so great cleaners. Turned out Melissa had been hiring individuals through local ad postings.

Melissa had some crazy stories but the show stopper was the Facebooking cleaner…yes, you read right! She came home to find this one cleaner sitting at her desk Facebooking. Shocked though not entirely surprised her city-minded friend suggested “Why don’t you call a “cleaning agency”?  Then you don’t have to deal with any of that…they’ll take care of it.”

An agency?!  Well sure, that was a great solution…IF there had been one in town. And the rest as they say, is history.

So in spite of the travel, and sometimes less than ideal weather conditions the Girls Gone Green Cleaning team serves a broad area covering Salmon Arm, Vernon, Sicamous, Sorrento, Blind Bay, Sunnybrae, Tappen, Grindrod Enderby and Armstrong BC.
