Our story began in Colombia in the 1950s. Big families were the norm. Lucy and Mary Ramirez were two of eight children in their family of farmers and service workers. When their mother died when they were very young, the children had to learn how to be self-sufficient. Life may have been tough but they all had each other.
By the early 1990s, Lucy was in California raising her daughter while Mary was living in New Jersey. In 1995, Lucy decided to move to New Jersey to be closer to family. The two of them began working for a local cleaning company. Soon they distinguished themselves as team leads. Subsequently, they decided to go off on their own to start “Lucy and Mary’s Professional House Cleaning”. Within a few years, the partnership evolved into a multi-crew business serving residences and businesses throughout South Jersey and Philadelphia.
Lucy’s daughter Tammy took over operations in 2013, changing the name to The Cleaning Ladies. We continue to grow by maintaining the high standards Lucy and Mary set almost 20 years ago. By offering the highest level of customer satisfaction, The Cleaning Ladies strives to become the leading provider of residential and commercial cleaning services. We cultivate the small town values and work ethic that Lucy and Mary established so many years ago.
