About Dust Queen: Transforming cleaning since 1989

Our Journey: From Humble Beginnings to Premier Cleaning Services

Dust Queen’s story is one of resilience, growth, and dedication to delivering exceptional cleaning services. It all began with Shelly Barless in 1989, who, like many visionaries, started small. Her first office was nothing more than a spare bedroom in her mother’s townhouse. However, her passion and commitment to excellence propelled her forward.

Over the years, Dust Queen flourished. Shelly’s unwavering dedication led to leasing a 1200 square foot office space. Today, 32 years later, the Dust Queen Group stands as a respected establishment with three distinct divisions: Residential, Commercial, and Industrial Cleaning Services. We operate out of our own 5200 square foot facility, proudly built in 2009.

The Dust Queen Group of Companies is a locally owned business,
proudly serving our customers since 1989.
