Very Professional and Personable - October 17, 2015
To whom it may concern,
I am writing to you to acknowledge Jorge who comes and services our yard. I commend him always being very professional and personable. He does a grreat job at keeping control of our pest issues.
Jorge learned, from our housekeeper, that my husband was ill. Jorge took the extra time to write us a short scribbled note, on our invoice, wishing him well. It's the little something like this makes him stand out. therefore, I want to extend my appreciation and let his supervisors know.
With Great Appreciation- June 30, 2015
With great appreciation for your excellent service to terminate the subterranean termites in my house. Thank you very much! I will gladly recommend your company to my friends or others at any opportunity.
Special thanks to Mr. Ted Pocwertz, termite manager, and to Mr. Kenny Ledbetter, who both did a hard and conscientious work, as they would do it in their own property.
Thanks you again.
Job Well Done
Your personnel just left our house and I want to tell you how great your service is. this applies also to your inspector who previously made the inspection which led to our using your company. We've had a lot of different companies do various types of work at our house in the past, but I must say that your personnel have been most professional, and what appears to us to be the most competent of all. You may be sure we will recommend your company to any of our neighbors who may need to have pest control work done.

Highly Recommended – Greenleaf
Greenleaf has been taking care our pest control issues naturally for years and we’ve been very happy with them. But now we can say that we’re impressed to the utmost.
A couple weeks ago we emptied out our storage and brought the boxes to our garage to sort through them. As soon as we did that, we noticed we were itching out of control. We were getting more and more frantic. Of course we assumed it was dust mites and “no see-ums”. The idea of being relentlessly bitten by these microscopic, alien creatures was abhorrent, to put it mildly.
I called Greenleaf and spoke to Mark. I “knew best”, that it had to be some ghastly creatures that had invaded our sanctuary.
Patiently, I mean very patiently for about half an hour, Mark explained to me what was really going on to where it made complete sense. It wasn’t those nasty critters after all. Mark could have sent out one of his technicians and sprayed the garage. But he didn’t. He told me what to do and if we still had a problem to call him.
Greenleaf sets the highest of examples of professionalism and ethics. Without reservation I recommend Greenleaf to anyone who is pestered by explicable or inexplicable invaders.

Why We Are Here!
I wanted to share a letter I received today that sums up why we do what we do...
July 20, 2012
To Potential Clients of Greenleaf Organic Pest Management, Inc.
Please be advised that we are apartment tenants and write this letter of recommendation for Greenleaf Organic Pest Management, Inc. ("Greenleaf"), its General Manager, technicians and staff whom have provided invaluable, excellent and professional client and pest control service for us. We encourage anyone experiencing pest infestation to immediately contact Greenleaf which specializes in the eradication of those problems by utilizing safe treatments and materials, without exposure to harmful, caustic chemicals or creating airborne irritation to human beings or pets.
Our relationship and service with Greenleaf began approximately two years ago when our apartment complex was infested with cockroaches and the apartment owner wanted their pest control company to "spray" toxic cockroach/insecticide in each and every apartment unit. We were deeply concerned about health issues relating to allergic reactions and subsequently desired an alternative treatment to the standard commercial "fumigant spray". Immediately, we contacted Greenleaf's General Manager, who explained the treatment options. A scheduled time was arranged for "baiting" or placement of non-scented paste formula in narrow crevices and other areas where cockroaches reside, as well as the placement of round discs (which contain non-toxic substances) around the apartment unit and would terminate the roaches and prevent them from breeding. The service was timely, professional , and successful. At the time, we were also apprised that if we did not retain paper grocery bags or paper cardboard boxes (which were fastened together by glue_, then we could also prevent cockroaches in our unit since they love to consume the glue.
We also viewed Greenleaf's website www.greenleafpest.com and were impressed with the extensive information about identifing various pests, their habitation, hazards and how to control and prevent infestations. Moreover, Greenleaf has entertaining online newsletters and videos as educational tools for clients awareness regarding the latest health and safety issues relating to the necessity of understanding pest control and it applications.
Another example of why we highly recommend Greenleaf is demonstrated in last week's situation, whereby we were concerned about a possible cockroach infestation if we did not conform with our apartment manager's request to permanently bolt the kitchen stove to the counter. This was required in the even of an earthquake and /or accident occurred to prevent the stove from sliding or falling. We objected to the bolting because we would not be able to freely move the stove to clean any debris around the area, thereby inviting cockroaches into the kitchen. We called Greenleaf's General Manager again and were delighted that he was able to intervene on our behalf. He spoke with the apartment manager to address the validity of our concerns and suggested an alternative method to secure the stove, by connecting it with Quake Hold Safety Straps which attach to wall/counter studs and also adhere to the stove with Velcro. Now, the stove belt can be unbuckled when we want to move and clean the stove, and then it can be refastened again.
We still continue to minimize the presence of cockroaches, and to this date have not seen any over a year. We look forward to a long lasting relationship with Greenleaf and are very pleased with Greenleaf, its General Manager, technicians and staff for their expertise and generous time they give to respond to our pest control questions and concerns. They are a professional, knowledgeable, caring, kind, patient, informative, trustworthy and dependable team and we are very grateful for their assistance and service. We highly recommend them without reservation to any prospective client and to the general public for their excellent pest control and client services.
With our deepest appreciation,

I would just like to express my gratitude for the wonderful job that your employees did for me in cleaning out those atrocious crawl spaces. Your Clean Space Crew, namely Ernesto, Victor, Selvin and Cesar, were model employees and very hard workers. They represented your company in a friendly, courteous, and professional manner. I would gladly recommend them for future assignments. They made this whole process as painless as possible. I hope that you value their work ethic as much as I do.

"In fact, we can say that over the years, he has been one of few contractors who has delivered as promised, and then some more."
"Gus has been out to the house on 2 occasions to discuss the scope and benefits of the undertaking the clean space project. On both occasions, he was punctual, very knowledgable of the subject matter, and most generous with his time in addressing all our questions. The official price quote came as promised, also on time.
Following his advise, we left the premises during the first 3 days of the project, during which time, his team carried out the major part of the work. Finally, the work was completed during the next 2 days, also on schedule. Much of the odor that we experienced prior to the work, seemed to have mostly disappeared. Subsequently, Gus has returned 2 more times to check with us, and complete small details.
All in all, our experience has been extremely positive, and we would recommend Gus without any hesitation. In fact, we can say that over the years, he has been one of the few contractors who has delivered as promised , and then some more.

"We were impressed with the professionalism"
To whom it may concern,
My name is Robert Krukauskas and I'm a superintendent for Satori Builders in San Diego, California. I am writting in regards to Gus Olivarez and his team at CleanSpace.
I am currently on a project in La Jolla , California. This project had major below grade waterproofing problems. Any time it rained, water would go directly into the crawl space creating a moldy and musty odor. We rebuilt all of the exterior waterproofing possible, a huge undertaking in it self. When all was said and done, we still had a musty odor coming from the dirt floor of the crawl space, but the crawl space seemed to be dry.
We consulted with Gus at CleanSpace, he said, he had the solution. He suggested his CleanSpace System, by covering and sealing all of the dirt, He would create a barrier that would eliminate any odor coming up through the ground and into the home. He also would install "SmartDrains" which would direct water to a french drain system by removing any water from possible plumbing leaks in the crawl space, keeping as dry as possible.
We decided to go with Gus's suggestions. We were very impressed not only with the product, how the crawl space looked from before to after and the total elimination of any odor from the moist soil, but also the professionalism of Gus and his crew. They were very accomodating, easy to work with and finished the job on schedule. I would not hesitate to recommend Gus and his CleanSpace crew to anyone.

I wanted to take the time and write and let you know that Gary and I are thrilled with the results of the installation of our Clean Space. As you recall, we had quite a few issues that we were dealing with up here on our little portion of the mountainside in Simi Valley. We were so happy to find a solution that actually has multiple benefits. Not only did you take care of our water problem with the sump pumps, but we also have all that new-found storage space. Our garage and downstairs smell so fresh and clean that we have almost forgotten how dank and musty it smelled before. With the recent heat, this has proven to be a real asset as our house is staying nice and cool during this heat wave and we found during last winter it stayed warmer with the heater running.
We appreciated that during the installation your crew always presented themselves as professionals and we had overall a very pleasant experience with the installation with no trash and debris left at the end of the work day. We appreciated that they left the workspace very tidy and that the work was completed in a timely manner. We also appreciated your personal attention to the project and you were so very pleasant to work with, explaining every detail when we had questions; and then upon completion of the project, the fact that you dropped by to give the finale your personal attention.
Thanks again for helping us out. Job well done!

This letter is to acknowledge the excellent job your company recently performed at my house.
I was extremely impressed by the professionalism of the crew and cleanliness of the work site as they efficiently encapsulated our crawl space and installed the SmartSump to prevent further structural damage and crawl space moisture. Your prompt response to our requests, the quality of your workmanship and prfessionalism have been outstanding.

Just a short note to thank you for the excellent job that you and your very efficient crew completed recently at our home with installation of your clean space system. Our home had a dampness to it that was noticeable when you entered. I am pleased to report that we are now "dry". There are not many home improvement tasks that you can describe as fun but the enthusiasm and friendliness that you and your crew exhibited and your willingness and ability to explain and show me all of your procedures made the whole experience enjoyable. Your crew is also to be commended for their cleanliness in carrying out an inherently "dirty" job — we had no dust in the house or rubble to deal with after. Thank you again

"When I inspected the work-I noticed how neatly the CleanSpace was installed."
This email is to say thank you for the Cleanspace installation work you did at 2616 Hermosa Avenue, Montrose I believe we did the right thing installing Cleanspace by correcting a decade old problem of no vapor barrier between the earth and the underside of the house.
The Cleanspace product should serve us for many years keeping the house dry. I never liked the idea of all that loose dirt directly under the house.
Your crews were professional and performed all the work I requested. The crews were well managed and I was able to go to work while the improvements were made. Cleanspace predicted the work would take five days and it took five days. I know the installation was difficult due to the condition of the foundation - but when I inspected the work - I noticed how neatly the Cleanspace product was installed.

"Thanks for the good work."
Dear Mr. Olivarez:
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the work you did on my property on Belmont Avenue, in Long Beach. I had numerous contractors view the property and each gave me a different opinion: it was either too difficult, too potentially dangerous or too expensive to be worth working on.
I was most pleased when you thoroughly viewed the property (unlike several contractors who merely appraised the situation without even entering the actual crawl space) and told me exactly what needed doing. And your estimate of the cost was both reasonable and exactly what you finally charged me.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any potential client.
Thanks for the good work.

To whom it may concern.
Earlier this year Greenleaf performed their Cleanspace process on my
home and I couldn't be happier.
There was always a lot of water under the house during the rainy
season, this was a great source of stress for me knowing that mould
was growing in the crawl space.
Greenleaf came in and cleaned up the entire crawl space removed all
the old building material and junk that had been there for decades,
and installed pumps. The work was done in a most professional
manner and on time.
I'm delighted with the final result and have no hesitation in

Dear Mr. Olivarez,
I'm happy to summarize my experience with your
company, Greenleaf, now one year after the
installation of your CleanSpace system in my crawl
As you know, I purchased a house with a basement
that had been added on beneath the main floor of my
hillside condominium. After an extensive full house
remodeling, which included the replacement of all the
existing drywall, there remained an overwhelming damp
odor in my finished basement (which was serving as a
second bedroom and bonus room). My contractor, who I
still feel is a highly competent contractor, was at a
loss to how to deal with the problem. I had tried a
number of air purifiers as well as attempting to seal
off all ducts leading to the basement. Nothing worked
and I was both upset and profoundly depressed. Then I
stumbled upon your company while doing a (desperate)
You correctly identified the problem as being my
crawl space. A great deal of debris had been left
from a previous contractor which had to be removed.
Then, following resurfacing of the crawl space, the
Cleanspace system was installed. The quality of the
work was outstanding, with perfect sealing of the
barrier over the soil. All existing mold was scraped
off the foundation walls and finally, the Sani-Dry
dehumidifier and Super Sump were set up.
I noticed a marked diminution in the odor when
the work was completed, and by two or three months,
all of the odor was gone. I am a perfectly satisfied
customer and have recommended your company to other
people. Thank you, Gus, for helping me. I had almost
given up all hope.

"Great job Gus and Greenleaf."
We have just completed a CleanSpace project with Greenleaf. Gus Olivarez and his professional team performed a major overhaul of the crawl space of my circa 1925 West Hollywwod home.
From begining to end, this project was handled in a professional way by Mr. Olivarez-perhaps the most professional of any project undertaken on this home in the five years we've owned it.
I was impressed from the very beginning, when Mr. Olivarez provided the estimate for the work and also told me about a long time leaking pipe that even my plumber and original home inspector had never noticed. Because of this, we were able to fix the plumbing problem.
My crawl space project was significant. There was a great deal of trash, vermin fecal matter, old hardware and wire, and a very uneven surface to the crawl space. Gus very professionally kept checking back with me about my interest, this led to making the CleanSpace project our next home improvement.
The CleanSpace team was a hard-working, professional group. They cleaned their work area each day before leaving and made every effort to create as minimal a disturbance while working. This is was very important to me as I work out of a home office.
Gus is not the kind of general contractor who sets a job and then leaves. He personally oversaw the project and did much of the work himself, including expert work to alleviate any rodent issues in the future. The finished product is pristine. My crawl space is accessible for the first time since we've owned the home and I can sleep easier at night knowing animals are not crawling through the walls. Even better, when the Santa Ana winds kick up and blow through the area, I don't have to worry about unhealthy dust being stirred-up into my home from my crawl space below.
Great job Gus and Greenleaf! We hartily recommend this service to anyone with a crawl space like our used to be. Thanks!

"Thank you for your professionalism."
I recently purchased a home in the city of Newport Beach. The property is near the ocean and overlooks a golf course. As a result of the areas topography and proximity to a golf course we learned the area has an extremely high water table. As a result the home required a sump pump to divert ground water whenever it rains or as the golf course ground water builds up. After we closed escrow we noticed a musty odor in the house. We consulted numerous experts on a solution. It wasn’t until we met Gus Olivarez and his team at Clean Space that we found someone that truly understood the nature of the problem. While many contractors attempted to sell us on expensive construction projects (such as French Drains) the Clean Space solution was practical and affordable. Gus and his crew were at my home promptly each morning and left the work areas clean each evening. After a couple of weeks he installed a clean space liner, sump pump and de-humidifier. We’ve had a number of trades in our home in preparation for our move. Recently a workman entered the home after his initial visit weeks before and commented “the smell is gone”. We’re a week away from our move and can’t wait to get into our new home. I can’t say enough good things about Gus and his crew! Gus, THANK YOU for your professionalism and for bringing quick resolution to what we feared would be a huge problem. I’d be happy to provide you with a recommendation anytime you need one.
