“Sparkling Homes is the best cleaning service I have used.  I use Terra for the apartment buildings  I manage in NW Portland and my personal residence.  The only thing more sparkling than your home or office when she is done is her personality!  I highly recommend Sparkling Homes for all your cleaning needs.”

-Todd, Portland

“Emmi is a terrific help for my house cleaning. True to the spirit of her business, “Sparkling Homes,” Terra makes everything shine.  She herself is like sunshine, friendly and cheerful. She is cooperative and efficient. When Terra walks into my home, I know that everything will be taken care of and at the end of her work I’ll have a super clean, comfortable home.  Terra is completely reliable. She cleans two other homes in my building, so she belongs to the “family.” Another plus is that Terra loves my kitties. I would recommend Terra to anyone who wishes to have their home shine.

-Ülker, Portland

“The house looks fantastic!! Thank you!!! It smelled so clean and looked so nice when I got home. You really did a great job and we're really impressed and definitely would like to have you come regularly. Thanks again!! We look forward to having you each month!!”

- Kim, Portland

“In this day and age where everywhere you turn there are opportunities to make your life less stressful, from yoga to personal chefs, I have found the best bang for your stress-reducing buck. Terra's friendly, reliable and thorough services have done more for my sanity and well being than anything I have tried in years! There is nothing like after a long day of work coming home to a spanking clean home that you didn't lift a finger to create. I have tried several other services in the past and none have come close to the over all excellent service I have found here at Sparkling Homes!”

–Mollie, Sellwood

“I am a picky customer who has been impressed with the high quality of work by Terra from Sparkling Homes.  In addition to making my home spotless, Terra is professional, reliable, punctual, and kind to my kids and animals.”

— Rebecca, Portland


“I went through several housecleaners before Terra came into my home and for the year that she has been cleaning my house I have been without complaints.  She is reliable, open to feedback, consistent in her attention to detail, and always so positive in her demeanor.  I can honestly say that I would recommend Terra with exclamation marks!!!  And that statement coming from a perfectionist like myself, is no small feat!”

— Annie, Portland


“Terra does such a wonderful job cleaning our house full of dog hair!  We get so excited to see the house on the days that she comes to clean - it is always a pleasure to walk in the front door.  Our dogs LOVE her - she is so sweet to them, letting our pug follow her around while she cleans, and talking to both of them throughout the visit.  We love having such a clean house, and we love supporting a young businesswoman in her endeavors.  We recommend her cleaning service without reservation.”

— Erica, Portland


I have been using Sparkling Homes cleaning service to clean my 3 bed, 2 bath house for several months now. I could not be happier with their service. Not only do they clean my home to perfection, they always try to accommodate my needs. There have been multiple times I contacted Sparkling Homes needing a last minute cleaning before company arrived and Terra always does her best to get my home clean within the needed time frame. I really appreciate that Sparkling Homes encourages customer feedback as well. I would recommend Sparkling Homes without hesitation if you are looking for a reliable, friendly and reasonably priced home cleaning service!

The gals from Sparkling Homes did a wonderful job cleaning our house. We're hoping to get a quote from them for a monthly service!

— Casey, Portland


Terra just came for the first time today to clean our house and she and her assistant did a great job! They covered off all the items I asked them to take care of, put things back neatly, and even lined up my little girl's duckies in the bath. In addition, Terra is super friendly, professional, and well priced. I look forward to using them moving forward. :)

— Liz, Portland


I am very pleased with the cleaning provided by Terra, and her assistant! My whole house needed a catch-up cleaning from top to bottom and they did just that.... they arrived on time in their cute little pink car and, after a walk-thru, got to work and didn't stop until everything was spic & span! Very nice gals and they did a great job..... our dog Molly, even approved!

— Judy, Portland


They cleaned the bathrooms, which included scrubbing all surfaces. They vacuumed, dusted, mopped the kitchen floor, wiped down the cabinets and cleaned all the other hard surfaces in the kitchen. The owner and her assistant arrived on time and were very friendly and professional. This is the first time I have ever used a professional cleaning service and was nervous, but they put me at ease. They stayed over two hours because both my bathrooms required a great deal of attention, but when they left the bathrooms were sparkling and had that "just cleaned" smell! They provided their own supplies, including a vacuum. I plan to use them bi-weekly if their schedule allows for the scrubbing and cleaning.

— Jill, Gresham


Sparkling Homes came over for house cleaning. They did dusting, vacuumed and mopped. They scrubbed the bathrooms and cleaned the kitchen and all the appliances. I have been using their services since October 2010. I have been using Ms. Terra and the Sparkling House team for close to a year. They are professional, friendly, flexible and thorough. As their names implies, they always leave my home sparkling clean.

— Mona, Portland


Had them come out and do a move in cleaning after a remodel was done on a home I had purchased. Home was empty at the time of service. I had Terra come in to do a move in cleaning for a home I bought. The house was empty but still had some construction type dust and things like that from the remodel. The cleanup was fast and they did a great job on the house. I would be happy to use them again.

— Donald, Gresham


Sparkling Homes came over for house cleaning. They come every 2 weeks to clean my house. Terra and her team from Sparkling Homes do a great job. They clean my whole house including small places like light switches and window sills. My house always smells great when they leave.

— Jody, Portland


These girls are amazing. Showed up on time, were friendly and professional, detailed the house in a record amount of time, blew away all other cleaners we've had....We are so fortunate to have found this service...the best without a doubt!

— Katy, Gresham

I asked for a deep cleaning as we prepare to put our house up for sale. Everything was done beautifully (they even got stains out of our white shower floor that I thought was there permanently). They arrived on time and got straight to work. Will be calling again, even when we move to our new house.

— Dawn, Gresham
