Established in 1972 as a contract cleaning company, owners Louis and Karen Hamel employed 45 people and had over 40 accounts providing janitorial service within the Hamilton area.

In 1978 Louis and Karen opened The Cleaning House on Kenilworth Avenue in Hamilton, ON. The store offered a variety of janitorial supplies that were distributed throughout the city for other contract cleaners.

As the business grew, space became limited at the Kenilworth address and The Cleaning House Ltd. officially relocated to 973 Barton Street, East in 1980, where it still is today. The contract cleaning company was sold in 1983 so Louis and Karen could dedicate their time to the supply store. Known as one of the first “walk in-open to the public” janitorial/sanitation suppliers in Canada, now with over 12,000 sq.ft of space, including a 2400 sq.ft supply showroom, and a 1200 sq.ft equipment showroom. We offer both an on site and off site repair service for equipment.

The business has grown exponentially since the 1980’s, servicing the Hamilton-Wentworth and Halton districts. We have partnered with a number of local towns and cities as well as Boards of Education as their main sanitation product supplier. With thousands of products in our showrooms, we are certain you will find the products to fit your needs.

Times are changing, and in order to meet the needs and requests of our customers, and as we move into the future together, we include in our product line, an Environmentally preferred line of supplies and cleaning products, alongside the old time favourites.

We are still a family owned and operated business, as we were in the beginning. We believe this is to our distinct advantage. We have long term, dedicated employees, customers and business associates. Our employees are knowledgeable and experienced and willing to assist you in any way they can.
