Cleaning and Housekeeping

Our crews are not afraid to get their hands dirty and scrub. They are careful and conscientious with the delicate and breakable yet capable of moving the heaviest furniture (and putting it back again). The result is a truly clean space. They dust, vacuum, wash and clean with the care and attention to detail that Upper Lakes PM is known for. We can be there once a week, twice a month or whenever you like – either way, you get the same space-familiar crew and guaranteed results.

Painting, Staining and Weatherproofing

Preserve the beauty and longevity of your Muskoka cottage or home by hiring our specialized and experienced painters. Extreme freeze and thaw stresses can be mitigated with the correct product selections and professional application techniques of our knowledgeable team.

Contact us for our hourly rates and to receive a time estimate for your Muskoka area property.

Cottage Opening and Closing

We take great care in assessing the opening, maintenance and closing needs of your unique property. 

Upper Lakes staff and skilled trades partners ensure that your water, HVAC, electrical and gas-powered services are in proper working order and that your fireplace and appliances are safely closed and re-opened when you need them to be. 

Our trusted team will employ proper protocols with all utilities and appliances, clean, and can make any necessary handy service repairs. We then suggest a preventative maintenance strategy for your property to safely weather the cold months.  

Meticulous outdoor and indoor cleaning crews will make it a pleasure to settle into your relaxation routine. Deep Cleaning and general cleaning appointments are available for cottage opening and closing packages. We offer a line of environmentally conscious products that smell great and can even keep the mosquitos away!
