Our Company

The right choice for all of your cleaning needs. 

"It's so wonderful," says Ron of the 38 years he's serviced his hometown and the surrounding Cape Ann communities. "I have had parents come home to clean carpets with their newborns and then I have returned to the same home, with those babies who are now adults, and I'm cleaning the same floors."

The A-1 Cleaning Team


Ron Goulart, Owner and Founder

As with most entrepreneurs, Ron Goulart established A-1 Maintenance completely by accident. It was 1979, BF Goodrich closed their plant and Ron found himself unemployed. One day his mother asked him to rent a carpet cleaning machine to clean her rugs.

When the elderly neighbors next door heard this, they asked Ron to rent the vacuum again to clean their house. The neighbor insisted on paying Ron and handed him a $20 bill, which at the time was a lot of money. Ron first refused the payment but the neighbor insisted and shared that he had paid a professional much more.

That was when Ron had his entrepreneurial light bulb moment.

A-1 Maintenance is launched

Just six months away from getting married, Ron began to book carpet cleaning jobs. At first he rented a machine in the early morning and returned it later at night. During the day he hustled to clean all the houses that were on his list for the day. Ron continued to rent the machine until he raised enough money to pay for his own equipment.

40 years later, with the addition of more machines and employees, the same business that started out of necessity now serves the cleaning needs of local families and businesses on the North Shore.
