Ucluelet, Vancouver Island/Coast
Hello! We are Monika and Robyn, founders of Mint Cleaning located in Ucluelet, BC. We met at a Mom group in 2016, it was friendship at first sight and business partners the following day. We started a cleaning company that became an overnight success with a full team servicing vacation rentals, residential and commercial cleans. After suffering from the harmful effects of harsh cleaning chemicals, we wanted to switch over to safer, eco-friendly products. As professional cleaners we know what is required to get the job done right. We started to experiment with some of our own recipes and formulated a cleaning line that is both effective and safe to use in your home. Our products are handmade in small batches with the highest quality ingredients that optimize results while being eco-friendly, all-natural and non-toxic. We are so honoured to be nominated for this award amongst so many amazing talented small businesses in BC.
