Up & Go is a women-run cleaning service that is entirely owned by the cleaning professionals themselves. Choosing them to clean your apartment will not only get it sparkling clean (with non-toxic products), but it will also empower women, most of whom are immigrants, to run and own their own businesses.
This unique and ethical cooperative model has gotten Up & Go featured and praised in publications like the NY Times, VICE, Wired, Fast Company and more.
As co-owners, Up & Go’s cleaners walk away with 95% of the amount you pay, allowing them to earn a living wage in NYC. Gig economy cleaning apps are known to take between 20-50%!
The quality of the service is just as noteworthy as the ethics of the company. Partners are chosen carefully through an extensive application process which precedes thorough trainings and trial cleanings.
“Up & Go is the best cleaning service I’ve used since moving to NYC 10+ years ago. I’ve been with them for almost 2 years and have never had a single reason to look elsewhere. Convenient booking and payment online, very communicative and friendly team, and spotless results.”– A Yelp reviewer with a very clean apartment
And these spotless results are achieved through the use of non-toxic products and sustainable methods.
… the house is always spotless but is never left smelling of overpowering products or anything (I can have an oversensitive nose!). Not a bad thing to say.– A Yelp reviewer with a clean apartment that doesn’t smell
Up & Go does not have any giant Silicone Valley investors; the workers are the owners, and they make the decisions!
