From Passion to Profession
In the blossoming days of 2018, Cynthia Gardner embarked on a journey that transcended the realms of traditional business. After studying business management and administration, a seed of aspiration was sown, nurtured by entrepreneurial experiences from launching a clothing venture online and in Bangor, Maine. This wasn’t just about applying what was learned in a classroom; it was about channeling personal growth, kindled by the joys and challenges of raising her two little ones Ava and Axl.
With most of her initial client requests coming from the scenic expanse of Bar Harbor, Cynthia began her quest, not just as a solo cleaner but as an eager student of a vast industry. Those long 12-18 hour days were filled with more than just cleaning tasks. They were days of discovery - mastering the intricacies of the cleaning world, attentively listening to clients, understanding their unique needs, and continuously adapting by learning innovative cleaning techniques. Those long days lead to establishing On Deck Cleaning Co's headquarters in the heart of Bangor at 82 Columbia st.
Crafting Stories Beyond Cleanliness
On Deck Cleaning Co's growth has been a tapestry woven with tales of varied lives. From the elderly seeking a gentle hand for tasks age had made daunting, to bustling families juggling the demands of work and children, and single parents striving to strike a balance between their personal and professional lives - every home had a story, every space a silent plea for rejuvenation. The sweep of a broom, the glint of a freshly cleaned window became symbols of hope, transformation, and a fresh chapter.
Being a part of our clients' lives, witnessing their challenges, and sharing in their triumphs has been our honor. We've celebrated milestones, offered solace during transitions, and felt the heartache when they move beyond our reach. We speak to many of our clients. We hear them. For us, every home we enter becomes a part of our shared narrative.

From individuals once on the brink of uncertainty to becoming indispensable threads in our story, we've witnessed their metamorphosis, aligning with our vision and mission. Providing not just a job, but a realm for growth, validation, and community camaraderie has been our cherished reward.
