I agree with many of the comments and really like MaineBrokerMan's idea if you stick w/the safari idea.

I don't like the first one at all, mainly b/c I don't think people would remember the name...which is obviously key for referrals or for people thinking about it for a while.

I don't really understand what a safari has to do w/cleaning unless, as suggested, you use MaineBrokerMan's ideas or the ideas to have them holding brooms or something.

I am sure that I am going to get beat up for this, but I am an American living in America. I will go for the one that is in my native language every time.

If you target market is English speakers use the one in English, if your target market is Hispanics use the one that is not.

Neither logo work for me.

When I think of cleaning ... clean, fresh, sparkle, rain drops, citrus ...

Do the logos have to be one color?

Instead of an obvious image go for shape, for example a swirl and arrange the typography around it.

I like B better, but would choose A over B because of the nature of the business. I don't think either is a good choice for a cleaning business. I'd think of a safari as dirt and grime. A Roman building reminds me of brick and clay for some reason!

Wouldn't a lemon or something be a better choice?

On second thought this is actually a negative. A better version would be:

We always remember to get your whole house clean

In answer to some of the other comments:

Because lemons, clean, fresh, sparkle, rain drops, citrus, etc. have been used to death in the cleaning business. I applaud the OP for wanting to try something different.

I do keep remembering the logo that was used by Carol Burnett, which was a charwoman.
