Sparkling results and pleasure to deal with! – We were desperate to get our dust-ridden and dirty apartment clean after a bathroom renovation that was the messiest job you can imagine. We were highly recommended Little Elves and they were a pleasure to deal with from the start; Very professional and efficient in answering all of our questions. Most importantly, the cleaning crew showed up dot on time with all the supplies and went to work immediately. When I arrived home after work that evening, my apartment was sparking and beautiful. I could not be happier with their work!
Little Elves One In a Million! – My urban apartment had undergone major renovations: a completely reconstructed kitchen and the laying of new floors in the living room, dining area and foyer. By defenition the end product required major cleaning.
The Little Elves were the model of efficiency and competence. I was particularly pleased with the attention on the details e.g. vacuuming both sides of the drapes, vacuuming the beans over the windows, cleaning windowsills both inside and outside, and cleaning light bulbs. This kind of attention to detail throughout the apartment made for a splendid cleaning experience-one that is hard to find these days.
Little Elves understandes the fine art and skill of cleaning.This was masterful work.
Perfect! – A Life Saver! With 48 hours to move into my newly renovated apartment, Little Elves came and polished my gem. Reliable, professional and very knowledgable about how to clean and what to clean with. Having very high standards I thought for sure that when I moved in I would have to pick up where they left off. Shockingly, I didn't have to do a thing. What a blessing. Worth every penny.
First Rate Cleaning! – These guys do it right. Very professional. Not the least expensive but I was extremely pleased with the results. We have a big Upper East Side apartment and it is not the easiest to keep clean. They arrived on time and I really didn't have to give much direction. They were done about when they said they would and frankly did not miss a thing. I will use them again and highly recommend them.
clean dream team – I had a great experience with this company; from my initial e-mail to them, which was promptly replied to, to setting up an estimate, and having the cleaning crew come. Everyone was on time, and pleasant. The crew came in and got right to work, and it was like a tornado watching them take apart my home and put it back together, only way more cleaner than it had ever been. They finished in slightly less time than estimated which was really great. I recommend them whole heartedly!
The Best Cleaning service in town – The idea of coming home and there is nothing left undone - that means that the cleaning job was properly done - this happens to me.
Much to my surprise even the smallest of the details like my socks drawer was organized & color matched.
All bottles of soda in the fridge were wiped and place with their labels turned toward the same direction.
I am yet to find a cleaning company that is so thorough and so professional.
Bait and Switch – unethical business practice:
they come to your apartment, and carefully inspect what the job requires. they give you quote for that job and afterward send a bill exceeding the estimate. if you send them a check for the agreed amount price, they just charge it to your credit card. infuriating.
In response, We explain to all clients for whom we do an estimate that the price reflects conditions we see at the residence at the time of the estimate; we explain that if we are working while other trades continue construction or painting etc. the final invoice will vary as we must redo areas that the contractor attends to after we clean. We also explain that if a client adds work to the original estimate, for instance window cleaning or steam cleaning carpets or such this will also effect their final price. In addition NYS tax is added to most invoices and this is not included in the original estimate as many clients prefer to delay tax payment via a signed certificate. We would like the opportunity to speak with this disgruntled client at their earliest convenience. We work for many, many home owners and it is extremely rare and upsetting to read these comments.

Only Cleaning Company I Refer – My company, Hampton Domestics is in the business of placing full time domestic staff in the finest homes in the United States. When I have a request for a temporary cleaner or a part-time cleaning in New York or the Hamptons there is only one company that I trust to put in touch with my fine clientele. That company is New York's Little Elves. Because I know that if the Elves step in to help my clients, they will be taken care of with the utmost integrity and highest of standards. They also have the liability insurance that my clients need due to the fine furnishings they have. Most companies don't have that.
