"We are women with dedication and effervescence, ready to bring zen to your home and your place of work"
Cleaning in Action is a worker owned cooperative based out of Southwest Detroit. In 2015 a group of women in Southwest Detroit came together with the vision of building a business together. Exhausted from working long hours cleaning and working temporary jobs for large corporations that paid little and demanded a lot, we decided to build our own company.
In March of 2017 Cleaning in Action Cooperative was officially formed offering high quality green cleaning services to customers in Metro Detroit. Working with us is not only an investment in enjoying a clean space to call home. It is an investment in our fellow worker owners and our community providing jobs with dignity at the center.
We are women with dedication and effervescence, ready to bring zen to your home and your place of work.
