Nook & Cranny was founded in March 2002 by Clare Riordan and Rhoda Mehl. They started the business as a house cleaning service with plans to be the best in the field.
Committed to providing only the best to their clients, Clare and Rhoda decided to make their own cleaning products. This line of cleaning products, made from Rhoda’s grandmother’s recipe, uses the basics of castile soap, baking soda, salt, lemon juice, and vinegar, empowered by essential oils of peppermint, tea tree and orange. These exclusive cleaning products are completely free of toxic chemicals which are not only offensive-smelling and harmful to most household surfaces, but could also lead to respiratory problems.
Impressed by their attention to detail, and their desire to provide the best, clients began referring the Nook & Cranny team to others, producing tremendous growth.
Rhoda and Clare continued to develop their vision and, fueled by a passion to serve, they added many service options for their clients including linen services, dry cleaning, errand running, and personal assistant service. Over time they have developed an extensive concierge network which provides a wide range of services to help bring balance and peace to the lives of their clients.
Recently, Nook & Cranny began offering comprehensive Home Management plans including an original innovation, the Household Manual which serves to bring order and facilitates communication for busy families. In 2008 Nook & Cranny gained local recognition with the top award as Best Personal Concierge in MN Monthly.

What Clients Say
Great cleaning done by Nook and Cranny. My apartment has never been so clean! Thank you!
Timely professional service, owned and operated by people that care about you and their image. Dust bunnies cower in fear, Nook and Cranny is here!
Seriously AMAZING. First off let me tell you – I am a CLEAN FREAK, alpha male, anally retentive weirdo when it comes to two things: managing projects (my job) and cleaning (my home).
Today was the first time I’ve ever had a cleaning service from these guys – they exceeded all expectations. No joke.
I just came home from a week away on business and I walk in…. BOOM! No dust, no dog hair, no marks on the surfaces or the floors, every bookshelf every table every possible surface in sight – spotless.
Great job, my home always smells wonderful when they are done. Great friendly staff and reliable.
Came and did a free consultation in order to understand what I needed cleaned in my home. They were timely and their price was very fair for the services they provided. Loved working with them and plan on hiring them in the future if I need my home cleaned!
They cleaned the main floor of my house, and I think they are great. The best part for me is that they are very kind.
