About US

how it all started

From humble beginnings to a well-respected establishment, like most great things, we started small. Shelly Barless started Dust Queen in 1989. Her first office was a spare bedroom in her mother’s townhouse. Years later she progressed to leasing a 1200 square foot office space.

Today, 32 years later, the Dust Queen Group consists of three divisions, Residential, Commercial, and Industrial Cleaning Services operating out of our own 5200 square foot facility that we built in 2009. Our dedicated and professional Cleaning Technicians have completed over 250,000 cleaning service jobs to both Residential and Commercial Clients in Greater Edmonton.

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