What I like most about Appleby Cleaning and Restoration is the people.

Larry Lenger, Orinda


We were impressed with the job your crew did on our floor tiles.  In the kitchen, they were so dirty I feared they couldn’t be brought back, but as you promised, they came up looking like new tiles.  I should add that it was a pleasure to have Reyes and Sang working in our house.  Not only did they cheerfully move furniture off the tiles onto the carpet, but when they were through (we weren’t here) they put everything back almost exactly where it had been.  Sorry not to send you a picture.  That would require picking up everything to make the place look “beautiful” and we’re too busy for that!

John Hastings, Orinda


The workmen were on-time, cleaned up after themselves and did a good job.

Jack and Diane Harrington, Danville, CA


Appleby cleaned the very dirty tan ceramic tiles in our kitchen, laundry room and bathroom.  Until I received their flyer in the mail, I had no idea that this kind of service existed and I’d even contemplated getting the tiles replaced after repeated attempts to clean them ourselves. I am really happy with the results.  It looks like a new floor at a fraction of the cost!

David and Kathy Kenny, Oakland, CA


Tom and I were very pleased with the service your company provided.  John and Juan were very gentle not to scratch the baseboards, etc.  I would definitely recommend Appleby to my friends.

Tom and Maria Graffeo, Danville CA


Nice workers, thorough and met expectations.

Perry Santia, Danville, CA


Les and the Team were willing to come back to redo a tough stained tile area.  We appreciate the effort.

Roy and Benita Wold, Pleasanton, CA


Our stainless steel counters and marble countertop look amazing…Appleby did a wonderful job refinishing our stainless steel counters and marble counter top as well as cleaning the grout on our tile floors.  I will definitely use them again and feel confident recommending their service to friends.

Karen Reisch, San Francisco, CA


What did we like about Appleby Cleaning and Restoration?  Everything!  They showed up on time, the techs were very professional and customer oriented (cleaning our tumbled travertine), very respectful and helpful.  Just keep doing what you’re doing…it’s great!
