Howard County Cleaning Service

Ivete’s Cleaning Service is a family owned and operated residential and commercial cleaning service serving Howard County, Maryland with a reputation built on honesty, reliability and the personal touch you just can’t get with a corporate franchise. This is why our clients in the community continue to recommend our cleaning services and many have stayed with us for over 27 years or more.

Howard County is centrally located with easy access to Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Many of our clients have demanding careers that limit the amount of time they can spend cleaning their home. Our clients live throughout Howard County, including Ellicott City, Columbia, Clarksville, Highland, Laurel, Glenwood, Marriottsville, Fulton and Elkridge.

We believe a clean home is a happy home and guarantee you’ll be happy with our level of service! Our owner, Ivete Cerqueria, is available for her clients to discuss their cleaning plan and ensure 100% satisfaction. Every one of our trained cleaning professionals receives personalized training to make certain they meet Ivete’s high standards for house cleaning services.
