"Markatos, or The Cleaning Chapter 1: Dustings Call me Yeager. Some years ago - never mind how long precisely - having a cluttered and dirty house and nothing particular to interest me in cleaning it, I considered perhaps asking someone else to do it. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen, and regulating the circulation. Especially in my house because it is filthy. Whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from methodically knocking people's hats off - then I account it high time to get Markatos in as soon as I can. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I ask Markatos for help. If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish very nearly the same feelings towards having their house cleaned with me. --- If you haven't called Markatos or read Moby Dick in your lifetime, you should." - D.Y.

“The guys that came out to power wash my house did an amazing job. They didn't disturb any of our surrounding plants/garden beds and got our house spotless.

“I am honored to give Markatos Window Cleaning Company the highest compliments on their work ethic. Having known the principle owner, Harry Markatos since the days when both my parents, Merle and Mildred Ward were still living. My mom and dad used this companies services for years. I have also had the privilege of using Markatos's services in my homes as well as in my listings before marketing them. During the years of ownership from 1990 to July 2008, my company, ReMax Assiciates, Inc. also used their professional services on numerous occasions in my offices. Thank you, Markatos, for helping to make life so much clearer in the job you have always performed on your window cleaning during the decades that I and my clients have been using your first-class services! Your professional team has not ever had to make a second trip to redo your FIRST class performance!” - With much respect and admiration: Mary Beth Adelman (Re/Max Associates)

"Markatos Services feels like family to me. I am disabled and really depend on help to keep me independent. When I call the office, I get a quick response and nice people to talk too instead of an automated menu to navigate. I appreciate the initiative my cleaning team takes when they do my house, they see cleaning problems and solve them. I trust them to be in my house even when I can't be there.
I've used MS for other services such as power washing, handyman help, and painting. The quality of work was good and prices were very reasonable for someone on a retirement income. In this age of big companies buying up small ones, it's so wonderful to find a community based business still giving the personal touch." - Susan N. (Customer since 2009)

"I am extremely happy with Markatos Services. They have been cleaning my home for approximately 5 or 6 months. When I come home from work after they have cleaned, I am so happy. My home is so clean. Not just surface clean, but deep down clean. I am a very particular person about my house being clean, and I am extremely satisfied. I also have allergies to dust mites, and I have noticed that my allergies have improved because of the thorough cleaning by Markatos Services. I have had other cleaning services clean my home before Markatos Services, but no one has ever cleaned so well as Markatos. I am also very impressed with Susan. She came to my home initially and was very professional and personable. I was very impressed with the reading material she gave me about her company. I could tell that a lot of pride, integrity, and quality went into her company. In summary, I am very pleased with Markatos Services." – Kathleen
"I recently had my first cleaning by Markatos Services. I met Susan and Nichole before the cleaning and was instantly at ease with their kindness and knowledge. I am looking forward to a long relationship with this company. When we came home after our first clean, we noticed a wonderful, clean smell! Everything was sparkling clean. We walked around in wonder, looking at our home through new eyes and new appreciation! In the living room, they even moved the furniture around a little bit, which looked so much better! They brought in a large team for our first cleaning, we were so impressed! As we left, people marched in and got right to work. We were definitely struck with how efficiently they worked. The grout and tile in our bathrooms had been completely steam cleaned. Linens had been changed on the beds. Everything looked so good. We enjoyed our clean house smell for days afterward! Looking forward to our next cleaning, thank you so much!"
"Very please with the services... Outstanding company, and will continue to use them (on this house and future homes as well)!"
"Cant imagine NOT using your services and wonder where you have been my whole life :) Ha ha! Seriously, You all do a fantastic job and I couldn't be happier."
"Your service has been excellent. I have no complaints. Keep up the great work."
"Harry and Susan, I think I've told you on several occasions, but I've always referred to your company as my angels! There are 3 things that I dread most about moving to Boston...finding a hairdresser, a doctor and a cleaning crew! Thank you for all you've done for my family over the years. You will be missed."
“The Markatos Team is reliable and thorough”
"I love their promptness - always on time if not even a little early! Pleasant work crews. They do a thorough job in cleaning and always willing to follow thru with any suggestions or needs. And of course Susan and Harry are wonderful and always ready to please. Thank you !!!"
“Thanks for the fantastic job you did on my house. I really appreciate it.”
“First cleaning was a heavy duty cleaning that was fabulous. My entire house was clean. Now they come every two weeks and do a good job. I highly recommend them.”
“Quick response, reasonable price, thorough job.”
“I was extremely pleased with the job Markatos Services did in cleaning my home. They did a wonderful job and I was extremely pleased with the attention to the detail. It made me fall in love with my home all over again.”
“Excellent!!! I couldn’t have asked for anything more. All the guys were very professional, courteous and worked extremely hard. The windows look brand new! Thanks to Mr. Markatos and all the guys! We also worked with Mrs. Markatos, who does house cleaning. Just as excellent! Hard to imagine such professional behavior these days – excellent work, prompt and efficient, well priced. I would highly recommend this Company to anyone!”
“It took me half an hour to take in all the sparkling clean surfaces! My beautiful carpets vacuumed in 1 direction, not haphazardly and all the fringes straight! Wood gleaming, glass gleaming... kitchen gleaming - including my sinks!!! Upstairs everything shiny - blinds wiped and shiny - can’t say I remember seeing that in months! Bathroom sparkling! Bed made to perfection, shelves shining. But when I walked into my spare room and saw it all “re-arranged” so nicely, and sparkling - it brought tears to my eyes. You guys went way beyond the call of duty!! Way beyond! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it!”
