About Us

Dependable Cleaning opened for business in November of 2006.  Erica Nephew and Ashley Jacobsen are two sisters who started the business with just over a dozen residential homes and have continued to grow and develop Dependable Cleaning.  Now cleaning homes and business all across Whatcom County, Dependable Cleaning has evolved from just a two owner business to a multi-employee, full service, licensed, bonded and insured cleaning company.

Erica and Ashley got their start in cleaning through a local business owner who hired Ashley to clean houses with her.  Ashley began cleaning and invited Erica to clean who was looking for employment at the time.  Quickly the two girls began to rise as the top employees of the business and began managing the company.  From scheduling other employees, running the monthly billings to managing the entire company, Ashley and Erica did it all. They then decided to move on and start their own company together.  Dependable Cleaning is now cleaning for a property management company, residential homes and local Whatcom County businesses.

Erica  and Alex Nephew have been happily married for six years and is the parents of two beautiful boys, ages 3 and 8 months.  They live here in Bellingham and will for many years to come.

Ashley and Matt Jacobsen have been happily married for three years and have been building a home in the cornwall neighborhood in Bellingham. They are excited to be finishing there home and to start a family in the future.
