About Sophia's Cleaning Service
Sophia's Cleaning Service is a 2nd generation family-run Brookfield business established in 1984 by our late mother, Sophia Borek. Unquestionably, Sophia would always go the extra mile to help everyone around her. Indeed, she ran her business as selflessly as she lived her life.

Whether it’s in preparation for a holiday party or before selling your home, it’s nice to be able to customize your cleaning services for the occasion.

Deep Cleanings Vs Regular Home Cleanings
The main difference between a deep cleaning and regular cleaning service comes down to the condition of your home.
If your home has not been maintained by a professional or you in the last 30 days, it may require a deeper cleaning.
Generally speaking, deep cleanings cover the same areas as regular cleanings in terms of which rooms are included.
However, since more time between cleanings typically means more dust, your home may require more time to clean than usual.
Accordingly, this deep cleaning option may need to be added to your service upon the arrival of your cleaners.
Unquestionably, our cleaning teams take pride in the quality of services they provide. Hence, adding a few extra hours for deeper cleaning ensures that your cleaning service is done right.

Cleaning Service Spotlight -January 4th, 2020
Painting or Remodeling your home can get pretty messy.
While most contractors may do a quick general clean up of the actual work area, much of the construction dust has likely spread to surrounding rooms of your home.
Indeed, Sophia’s Cleaning specializes in post-construction and after renovation cleaning services. We have been cleaning up after contractors and construction crews for over 36 years.
In fact, Sophia’s owner, Andre Kazimierski, grew up on renovation job sites and knows first-hand how messy things can get. While Sophia’s Cleaners can help clean up after most remodeling projects, we do have our limits where you may need to call a debris removal company.
Searching for a top-notch interior painter near Chicago? Andre’s newest startup, Improovy Painters Chicago uses AI to provide an instant house painting quote for your home online. No doubt, it’s the easiest way to book and get your home painting project done by a great painting crew near Chicago.
Update December 30th, 2020:
Improovy has recently launched its 2nd location in Naperville! Now you can book a hassle-free painting service in Naperville, IL, and nearby Dupage County neighborhoods.
What Is Included In A Post-Construction Cleaning Service?
Undeniably, cleaning up after a major home construction project is a large undertaking. Therefore, our post-renovation cleaning service visits are a bit more time and labor-intensive than typical home cleanings. First, we increase the time spent scrubbing and dusting horizontal surfaces including sills, wall fixtures, and baseboards.
Next, we add extra time to clean wood floors, tiles, vacuum carpets, and scrub common areas like staircases and entryways. Of course, areas used by the workers for entry/exit to the job site require a bit more elbow grease than usual.
Lastly, we include a wash of areas where dust is circulated throughout the home. These areas include the dusting of ceiling fans, intake vents, corners of rooms, & ventilation registers. Not to mention, items like the tops of the refrigerator in the kitchen that often get overlooked after a remodeling project.
Limits To Our Post Renovation Cleaning Services
As a reference, our cleaners are not equipped for very dirty construction cleanup projects. For instance, post-renovation cleanings requiring tools like a HEPA shop vac or debris removal are outside our scope of work.
However, our home cleaning teams can handle most post-renovation projects that require extensive surface dust cleanup and general room cleaning.
In any case, we’d be happy to recommend a local heavy-duty junk removal companies upon request.
Top-Rated Chicago Construction Cleaning Services
Our post-construction cleaning clients appreciate the fact that they can always rely on us to show up on time & do a great job. By the same token, our customers trust that we will remain flexible in case of a project timeline change.
In fact, many of the largest home builders, house painting contractors, and residential remodeling companies in La Grange, Brookfield, and Hinsdale use our post-construction cleaning crews to clean up after their renovation projects.
Pro Cleaning Tip #21:
The dust kicked up from a home remodeling or house painting project clogs up air filters four times faster than normal. Don’t forget to change out your furnace home’s air filters after your next home renovation project!

I Have Pets, Will You Still Be Able To Clean My Home?
Of course, we love pets! In fact, we don't charge any extra fees if you have pets. However, we are not able to clean up feces, vomit, or urine for safety reasons. If you do have pets in your home, we ask that you indicate it in your booking notes or let our team know when we reach out to confirm your booking. A few of our providers may have allergies or are afraid of certain species, and we want to ensure that we send the provider best suited for your home.
I Only Need One Room Cleaned. Do You Provide This Type Of Service?
We typically are not able to do smaller-scale cleanings as our cleaners have a fixed cost (transportation, gas, etc) associated with each cleaning visit. In general, we may not be the best service option for smaller single-room cleaning jobs. When in doubt, please reach out and we'll be happy to talk about the specifics with you!
How Long Will My Cleaning Take?
The duration of the cleaning in your home can vary and is based on the size and condition of the home as well as if any extra cleaning options are added to the cleaning, this is why we typically do an hourly rate. Any extra cleaning options selected or added requests are included in the hourly rate. Our quotes provide an hourly rate and can also provide a rough time estimate by request based on the details provided on the form. Please note: the estimated duration of the cleaning is not guaranteed as it is only a rough time estimate.
We try to be as efficient and effective as possible with our time in your home, but we can accommodate requests for a restricted amount of time for the visit. We do have a 4 hour minimum requirement and completion of the job can’t be guaranteed if you are imposing a cut off. In this case, we find that it is best to provide a priority list for the cleaning (e.g. kitchen, bathrooms, etc.) and we'll do our best to get those important areas done for you!
