Emergency Water Removal

Water damage happens at the most inconvenient times and can be very stressful. Broken pipes, a leaky water heater or boiler, or flooding from rain or snow can ruin anyones day. At General Cleaning, we can pump all the water out and do a complete clean up to stop mold and mildew from growing.


When accidents happen, we will work with your insurance company to make things go a little smoother. We are fully insured and WILL have an owner on the job site to assure proper care.

 In 1980, Carol Bennett started cleaning houses when her 5 year old son, Brett, was in Kindergarten. It wasn't long after she began cleaning small offices. She continued to develop her clientele throughout the years as the commercial and residential customers steadily increased. In 1998 General Cleaning Service's became Incorporated and one year later the Company acquired Handy Hands Carpet Cleaning which allowed them to expand their service areas to include carpet, area rugs & oriental rugs, upholstery, and tile and grout cleaning.

Today the family business has grown to include Brett as the Vice President. We continue to provide the professional and courteous service that the customers have come to known throughout the many years.

  • "Short notice...no problem!"

    I was so happy that you were able to fit me into your schedule last minute. The party was a success and the stains in the carpet are gone. Thanks again.

  • "Carpet saved following water damage"

    I can't believe how good the carpet came out after the water damage we had. When I went down stairs and saw 30" of water in my finished basement, I thought the carpet would have been the last thing we could save. You guys pumped out all the water, removed the old pad, put in new and cleaned the carpet. The hole basement looks like new. Thank You

  • "I am a believer. Reasonably priced. Friendly, Professional."

    I have extremely old carpets that were stained with many dark spots. I would not have been surprised if General Cleaning Services couldn't get them out. They got them out. It surprised me how clean they came. I am a believer. Reasonably priced. Friendly, Professional.

  • "Problem Carpeting Resolved"

    I called around to see who would be able to clean my carpets and General Cleaning Services came out each time, on time, and did a fantastic job with extremely reasonable rates. They were very conscientious and got the pet stains out of the carpets. I am very satisfied and highly recommend General Cleaning!!
