Natural Home Cleaning Professionals is a worker-owned business that provides professional, environmentally safe residential and commercial cleaning services to the residents of the East Bay, from Oakland to southern Richmond.
We've used their sister cooperative, Emma's Eco-Clean, for years, every time we've moved from one apartment to another, and have always been very happy with them. Not only do they do a great job, they use non-toxic cleaners, they're very friendly, and their wages go directly to the members of the cooperative.
Natural Home Cleaning Professionals charges $25 per hour, per person, and work in teams of two so they can work faster and more efficiently.
Natural Home Cleaning Professionals is a worker-owned cooperative founded in 2003. The founding members formed the business with the support of WAGES (Women's Action to Gain Economic Security), a non-profit organization in Oakland that helps empower low-income women to start their own business cooperatives.
Other WAGES cooperatives include Emma's Eco-Care on the Peninsula (from South San Francisco to Sunnyvale) and Eco-Care Professional Housecleaning in the South Bay (from South San Jose to Hollister).
