Down and Dirty Cleaners
By Annette Langenstein, Staff Writer 

Danielle Grindstaff and Crystal Gurley are the owners of Down and Dirty Cleaners, a new business the two started in May of 2015.

“We were both working as part of the housekeeping staff at a local hotel,” said Crystal.  “My mom had been in the housecleaning business for many years. Danielle and I got to talking and decided that since we were both thinking of going into business for ourselves, why not go into business together.”

Danielle grew up in the Coos Bay area, while Crystal hails from California and has been living here for about two years. Between Danielle’s knowledge of the area and Crystal’s background in housecleaning, the two make the perfect cleaning pair.

Down and Dirty Cleaners offers services just as their name implies. They are a complete housecleaning business: dusting, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, windows, etc.  “If a client wishes, we’ll clean bedding, carpets, drapes, you name it,“ said Crystal. “We even haul away garbage, furniture; the whole shebang!We have a professional steam cleaner for carpets, curtains, or furniture; we do it all!” 

Licensed and bonded, and supplied with solid references, the ladies provide both residential and commercial cleaning services in Coos Bay, North Bend, and the surrounding area. “We’ve gone out to Hauser, Reedsport, Bandon, Coquille...all the surrounding areas,” said Danielle. “Anybody that needs help, we’re willing to help them.”

I asked Crystal and Danielle why they chose the Shopper to do their advertising. “I’ve always heard good things about advertising in the Shopper,” said Danielle. “It’s really helped us get our business promoted. Friends have told me that if I need to get the word out, the Shopper will really help do that, and it has. We’ve gotten a lot of phone calls because of our ad.”

Crystal added, “The Shopper is how I found the home I’m living in and also how my husband got his job!  And the last couple of weeks our business has been doing great!”

Danielle told me that the business gets the most calls from seniors. “We actually do a lot of work for seniors, like one lady who insists we wash her floors on our hands and knees. Jim and Gina Oxford of the Oxford ranch are some of our favorite people we clean for, and they love our work!!!  And we give discounts to seniors as well as veterans.”

“Seniors are on a limited income, and we want to give back to those veterans who have given so much to us and their country,” said Crystal. “Most of the seniors we clean for have been injured and just can’t keep up with the cleaning any more. I’m a mom and I know a lot about cleaning up after families.  I have a lot of respect for the people I do cleaning for, because like I mentioned before, my mom has cleaned for people in this area for years. I guarantee my work.”

Down and Dirty Cleaners will do cleaning from 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday. Their phone number is 541-404-2570.    

As for future plans, Danielle says she wants to “see our business succeed and hopefully help out a lot more people in this community.  We’re more than willing to help...just give us a call and we’ll be right there!”

“We really do get down and dirty, like our name says,” said Crystal. “‘You dirty it, we purdy it’ is our slogan, and we live by that!”
