It all started back in 2008 when our CEO, Michael Morozov, was attending the Schulich School of Business at York University. During that time, York University went on strike for a record breaking 85 days. Some students decided to go on a 2-month vacation, while others worked part time jobs. However, Michael decided to use his entrepreneurial drive to roll up his sleeves and start making some extra spending cash for the summer. He had the vision to open a residential window cleaning company. Michael maxed out his student credit card and purchased some ladders, squeegees/buckets, and an old minivan.
At first, the company started with a few door to door sales reps and a few window cleaners. These numbers grew rapidly as time passed, and Michael began to see the value in commercializing/ consolidating an industry that was very archaic with no real industry leader. As opposed to pursuing a career in Investment Banking, Michael leveraged his experience and knowledge gained at the Schulich School of Business and created “Gold Standard Property Care.”
Fast forward 9 years since inception and Gold Standard is now the leading player in the industry; with over 18 locations across North America, servicing more than 30,000 customers a year and employing over 250 staff members/contractors. Gold Standard continues to strive and innovate in an industry that has been dormant for far too long.
Great job, once again. We take pride in keeping our condo clean and welcoming. Ever since we hired this company for cleaning, the environment both inside and out has become so much more pleasant. I know we’ll be using your services for many years to come.We do have to chase sometimes for paperwork and billing, so I'll take a mark off for that. But the service itself is second to none.
The new home is finally complete and all I can say is thank you! It’s exactly the way we wanted and the wall color compliments our furniture so well. I’m glad we chose Gold Standard Home Care’s painting service. They provided a very professional consultation and gave great advice while getting into the project. The consultation, preparation and painting went really well; your staff deserves a compliment.
I’m very impressed with the hard work Gold Standard did on my windows. I’ve never seen them look so clear since they were installed. The whole process was easy and simple. I called Gold Standard to schedule an appointment and the window cleaner showed up on my doorstep half-an-hour early and was done before sundown!
I just had my windows cleaned today June 30/16. The gentlemen names are James & Corey, they did a fantastic job of my windows. I would recommend them a lot. I gave them a 5 star rating.
Gold Standard Home Care does a great job at clearing driveways, parking lots, sidewalks and walkways of office buildings. They also spread salt on icy surfaces to ensure the safety of employees and visitors. GS did a splendid job this winter and I am looking forward to using them in the future. Let’s keep in touch.
Window cleaning was the last task we did this fall after a summer of outdoor reno. There was quite an accumulation of dust and dirt on the windows. I had difficulty wiping and cleaning off the stains and dirt myself.I called Gold Standard for a quote and scheduled them for an appointment the following day. They came in on time for the appointment and did a very consistent, thorough job.
My windows looked brand new and the price was affordable and reasonable. I would not hesitate to use your services again.Plus the work you did on the gutters was super. I really don't trust my knees to get up their anymore. We've noticed since your work that rain runoff is not pooling like before because the gutters are finally working fine.
