The family clean story

The smell of a freshly cleaned home. Extra moments for family and self-care. The order of an empty kitchen bench. We know it’s the smallest pleasures that leave the biggest mark, so we never lose sight of the tiny details when house cleaning, Brisbane and beyond. After all, it’s from little things that big things grow – and that’s how our story goes ...

When asked to tell our story, Joey (the guy on the left) always starts by saying: “I never understood the problem we solve until I experienced it myself.”

Joey started Family Clean as a little side business when he was just 18. Full of ambition, he would finish up a 12-hour night shift, grab a few hours of sleep and begin cleaning.  Through cleaning, Joey rediscovered what he learned growing up on his parents’ farm. Meaning, that working with heart is the most fulfilling way to get by. He was driven by customer feedback and proud to realise his work was making a genuine difference for families.

Word of this young, enthusiastic cleaner spread very quickly. In turn, it wasn’t long before he was able to give up his night shift work. The challenge that came next is the same problem we continue to solve for our customers today. That is finding good, reliable members of a house cleaning team.


Family Clean was rapidly growing and Joey needed staff.  However, cleaners were looking for ‘just a job’, rather than an opportunity to help others. To find truly perceptive cleaners who shared his values, Joey needed to evolve his little cleaning run.  Soon after Rowena came on board, we became a selective recruitment agency. We continue to specialise in finding and training dream cleaners who know what really matters. Our values are – caring enough to go the extra mile, using eco-friendly products and treating your home like you do.


A lot has changed since Joey rang the doorbell for his first cleaning job back in 1994. But our passion for taking kindness out into the world has stayed the same. Today we have a family of cleaners who will stand just as proudly at your front door, eager to help and give you back precious time.
And that is what makes us the good kind of different.


We’re doing our bit to brighten your home. We don’t just train cleaners on the best ways to scrub and polish – we empower them to do a great job and to really value the importance of their work. Every member of our house cleaning Brisbane team are passionate about doing their highest quality work.

We are proud to have created opportunities for cleaners who instinctively understand that the smallest actions can make your day a hundred times better. And we are proud that these cleaners carry that positive energy forward into the lives of our customers.

Because we truly believe that every little action matters, we only endorse eco-friendly cleaners to help protect our planet and your wellbeing.


We’re an agency with the heart and soul of a family business. That means once we find you an amazing cleaner from our house cleaning Brisbane team, you continue to receive support from our Mother Ducks nesting at Family Clean HQ.

Our team meticulously screens and trains every cleaner for you, and they are fully insured for peace of mind. We also regularly pop into your inbox for no other reason than to say hi and check in – it’s just what Mother Ducks do.
