In our lives these two always seem to go hand in hand, I guess that is one of the quirks of owning your own business. You are your own boss, but with your clients you are not always the one in charge, because the customer is always right.
We constantly lose sleep over how our business is doing, or if you have schedule changes coming up the next day, how we can get more people interested in our service.
Often, when we are running errands we have things that need to be picked up for business as well personal items, so multi-tasking comes into play quite often. Gas to get, food for lunches and who wants to take separate trips to Costco?!
BUSY BUSY BUSY
I guess you could interpret it to mean that you don't have to take personal responsibility for your actions. Most businesses are personal, they are part of the community and society. Business decisions impact real people. When you and your company strive to make a real difference in people's lives this shows that you are sincere, this builds trust in your clients and your employees, this will definitely affect you personally.
Above all else, business should at the very least start out as personal. Many businesses seem to think that if you have an all business state of mind that you don't have to return calls or requests. These are just common courtesies that have nothing to do with just business. Telling someone at the end of a conversation to "have a nice day" could affect someone all day and put a smile on their face, and it really didn't take much effort on your part.
If you are looking for a professional janitorial service to add a personal touch to your office cleaning, give us a call.
HOW CAN WE HELP YOU TODAY?
We have had many celebrations this week including birthdays and graduations that have kept us busy. These are joyous occasions that family and friends should take time to enjoy. As with birthdays, we are looking forward to the year ahead and hope that it is better than the last. Graduations bring many long speeches about the entire future which is filled with hopes and dreams.
Although some of our graduations were many years ago these speeches bring to light that we still have the hope of running a successful business that gives many employees a chance at the future. Whether it is short term as they work and attend school or long term to raise families and have a good life. Helping create a good work ethic is important to how you shape your whole life, and how successful you become, no matter what you choose to do.
Our services are versatile in the fact that we offer jobs to those who want them and to also help people and businesses who need our services. Our dream is to have a business that runs smoothly, pays our bills and allows us to hire many more great people, so we can help them with their futures.
LIFE IS BUSY
Most bosses have to agree that even though work deadlines are not always in your control, they still have to show that they care by relieving some of your work duties in order to get a good performance from their staff.
Life is so busy and hectic that you often can't focus on anything more than the things that need immediate attention. There seems to be more things to be done than you have time for. When you are working hard, you deserve a break at the end of the day. Wouldn't you rather be on your way home than spending any more time in a stressful environment?
We can help you get a small reprieve from all of your work chores. Call us and let us know what we can do for you today.
WHY DO ONLY THE WORST SMELLS SEEM TO LINGER LONGER
On early mornings when I drive my daughter to ice skating practice we pass a certain area that always smells like burnt toast. Our windows are rolled up and the a/c is on, so this must be a very strong odor wherever it is coming from. I wonder if this is a permanent smell or does someone get up everyday and burn their toast? Maybe it's just time for a new toaster, or they like their toast slightly darker?
Bad smells can be irritating and can cause anxiety and mood swings. Some people may even get headaches or dizziness from overpowering smells. Some chemicals with strong odors can cause eye, nose, throat and lung irritation, which can lead to coughing and wheezing.
BAD ODORS ARE BAD FOR BUSINESS AND YOUR HEALTH
Smelly odors can come from anywhere for multiple reasons - all of which can drive away customers. Offices are so closed up(Especially in the Phoenix area) in order to conserve energy that the fresh air and sunshine cannot do their part to clear the air. Some live plants absorb toxins and other particulates while supplying a safe, fresh scent.
Using a small fan in your space can help blow some of the bothersome odors back to where they came from. Sprinkling a little baking soda on your chair and carpet can absorb some of the longer lasting smells. (Be sure to vacuum it up before you sit down) Hiding a small bowl of vinegar can help absorb odors such as smoke.
In your workplace the trash should be emptied daily and bags changed as necessary. Carpeting should be vacuumed on a regular basis and floors swept and mopped.
Cleaning products should not have an overpowering smell. Have you ever been to Mexico where they clean with such a strong pine scented cleaner that you cannot even taste your food? I have many great memories from there and that is not one of them.
Green cleaning products are biodegradable and do not use smells that can irritate, they should only leave behind a faint scent of clean. Our company uses green cleaners that are good for you, your employees and your customers.
We hope you have a great smelling weekend, whether you go to the movies and get the big bucket of great smelling popcorn or bake chocolate chip cookies at home. Hope whatever you choose it is fun and relaxing.
,This morning we packed up an ice chest, loaded our dog Calypso into the car for a follow up visit to the veterinarian. Luckily, she travels well as our local vet is located in Chandler. It takes us about an hour and two freeway systems to get there. We have built up a trusting relationship with him and have been using his services for almost 40 years. (That's longer than any people doctor we have ever been to!)
WHAT LOCAL MEANS
In this case it means relating to a particular area in the Valley of the Sun, The Phoenix Metropolitan Area, Salt River Valley or Metro Phoenix. No matter what you call it, these are all the different ways to describe the metropolitan area that surrounds Phoenix. Sometimes it is drive to get there though!
UNIQUE AND HANDS ON
Many small businesses offer products or in our case, services that are situated to the needs of their local customers. They are more flexible in their customer support and have often waited for us when we were stuck in traffic (I-10 - UGH!) as well as scheduled other appointments to suit our needs. They appreciate our business and treat us as a valuable customer and a friend.
MILLIONAIRES AND BILLIONAIRES
Many of the powerful big name businesses that are out there today had very humble (And local) beginnings, they started in their garage. Although they have now moved out of the garage and into corporate offices, they had many people help them along the way. They now have a team of people who help them with the needs of their business. From their right hand person who sees to all of their important needs, to the person in charge of hiring and running the everyday needs of the business.
No matter how big or small the businesses that we use are we should remember how it is to start out, and the people who supported us along the way. From our wonderful veterinarian who puts our mind at ease and takes care of our best friends, to the restaurant who cooked a cheeseburger made to order for Calypso (She is kind of a diva when she has to visit the vet). We are thankful for all of them who make our daily lives a little easier.
Hang in there - Friday is in sight.
WHAT IS OLD IS NEW AGAIN.....
We recently received the amazing news that one of the offices we used to clean for would like our company to clean for them again. We started with them when they opened a new facility and then they decided to have an employee do the in-house cleaning for them. Unfortunately, their workplace did not receive a proper cleaning on a regular basis and they are left having to replace their flooring and the carpeting because things had gotten so bad.
We appreciated the fact that we got to be the first ones to clean this new office, and we are thankful that they thought of us when they realized they needed an experienced janitorial service.
WHY CLEAN MATTERS
Regardless of the type of business you operate, your customers may be influenced by your building appearance. A clean building can be used to help grow your business and your reputation.
Regular and proper cleaning is essential to protecting your building's carpets, floors and all flat surfaces. Failing to do so can be costly when they need to be replaced sooner than they should. Having them cleaned on a regular basis can help preserve them.
Whether your business is in an office complex, medical center or a high rise building, providing a healthy, clean environment should be top priority. Properly cleaned facilities protect all their occupants from the risk of infectious diseases and cross contamination.
Be the first to turn your office into a healthy, clean environment. We can help you by creating a successful cleaning plan that fits your needs and your budget.
We were attempting to go out of town for a quick weekend trip to celebrate Mother's Day, but our black lab, Calypso (Who has been known to steal loaves of bread and packages of frozen pork chops off the kitchen counter) decided she didn't want to eat on Thursday. We chose to stay close to home so we could watch her and not cause her any further stress by us not being home. She is a much loved member of our family so this wasn't a huge sacrifice. The vet recommended a special diet of rice and chicken until she was feeling better and I was able to feed her several smaller meals a day.
Sometimes when our plans go awry it's hard to get back on course. Our home got quite messy in that small amount of time and I just wasn't ready for Monday. So, I started my work week off feeling behind, and I lost Monday, it very quickly got away from me.
DON'T LET YOUR OFFICE CLEANING GET AWAY FROM YOU
One issue about allowing your workers to clean in-house is that they do not have the professional cleaning experience to clean at a professional level. You may be putting your entire office at risk by cutting corners.
Cleaning will be done by whatever the employee thinks is best and the easiest way. Will they know how to clean and sanitize the restroom correctly?
Did you hire your employees to clean and take out the trash? This makes them less productive and can create unnecessary resentment as well as the possibility of creating health issues by improperly cleaned kitchens and restrooms.
You hired good people who work hard, let us help keep your office clean and looking good so you can concentrate on your business.
Our staff is knowledgeable about green chemicals, techniques, the right equipment, and security procedures. Give us an idea of what your specific needs are and we can help set up personal cleaning plan that will help your office look amazing.

Mother's Day is Sunday. did you decide how to celebrate yet? It might require a little more planning, but you could surprise her with something special - while supporting independent businesses. This keeps the money close to home. If your planning a drive up North you could choose Verde Canyon railroad and take a leisurely four hour round trip train ride, or you could choose to ride a bike in beautiful Sedona. If you are looking for a yummy treat you could try the Mogollen Moose Bakery in Payson.
If you are looking for something a little closer to town.
Queen Creek has it's annual Peach Festival at Schnepf Farms happening on Sunday where everything is peachy. We have not been out there yet,, but it sounds like they have a lot to do: peach picking, samples to try , rides to ride and over 150 vendors selling unique items.
The Queen Creek Olive Mill is also a family owned olive farm and mill where you can buy fresh olive oil in different flavors. They offer many different events throughout the year, as well as a Mother's Day brunch.
Although we are in Queen Creek several nights a week, we don't really get a chance to see how much they have to offer. I see a day trip in our very near future!
(These are merely suggestions (Or hints, wink wink)for things to do, we are not supported by any of these businesses.)
We hope everybody has a great rest of their Friday. Have a great and relaxing weekend. Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there.
If you are looking for a janitorial service that offers quality, value and a great service. please give us a try.
The pink ring around the toilet is is caused by an airborne bacteria known as Serratia Marcescens. Occasionally, they attach to the mineral deposit build up and be harder to get rid of. Products containing bleach are helpful but not green, they can also be harmful to the inside toilet parts. A pumice stone or magic eraser can help, you just need to careful how you use it.
Public restrooms tend to be bigger, dirtier and harder to clean. Bathrooms are a high touch area with all of the door, faucet and toilet handles. Not to mention the sinks, counter tops and floors. It completely grosses me out to think about setting my purse on the floor, then putting it in my car or taking it home to set on a couch or kitchen counter. And don't even get me started when people allow their kids to crawl around on the floor!
WHO ARE YOU GOING TO CALL
A professional cleaning service is trained to match the right cleaning procedure to the right job. Unskilled and untrained cleaning services are often unaware of basic safety procedures. Such as which chemicals Do Not Mix Well Together. and can cause a toxic situation. Odors should be neutralized, not created.
GERMS, MOLD AND FUNGUS...OH MY
These can all be avoided if you have clean and fresh restroom facilities. It is good for you and your employees. Customers are more confident to walk into a clean restroom stall and the toilet or urinal are clean. It tells customers they can rely on your company to provide excellent service because you care.
Nobody likes to use public restrooms, but stores and restaurants that have clean and well stocked restrooms are going to get more business because people remember who they are. With us having three girls in our family, I can't tell you how many times we have passed by something only to have to return to the item and purchase it on the way out.
We have cleaned our fair share of pink toilet rings, if you need someone to help you out, give us a call. We can help.
The week is half over, have you accomplished everything that you wanted to? Us either! Seems like there is always something on the to-do list. One of the things most important things on our list is providing quality service that our clients depend on. We value their business and hope that they refer us when the opportunity arises.
CLEANING FOR COMMERCIAL PROPERTY MANAGERS IN THE PHOENIX AREA
We have worked with investors and property managers throughout the Phoenix area for many years. Commercial property management is only as good as the team they assemble to help them.
When you find quality tenants you want to build a relationship based on trust. Using a company that provides hands on management is important to ensure the building is operated and maintained to the highest standard.
Reliability should be your top priority and surrounding yourself with the right people can make your job easier. We try to take a proactive approach by responding quickly and reliably to the needs of our customers.
Many years ago we worked for a management company who was located out of town. Their bottom line was how to save money, but not providing a clean and safe office building. They were ungrateful owners who did not care how their office building was run. Their clients had a hard time getting in touch with them and they didn’t return phone calls right away. They even went as far as having the building re-measured; taking out mere inches of wall space and closets in order to cut down the square footage. This lead to a negative working environment for their frustrated customers because they still wanted walls cleaned and the floors vacuumed. The security company was forced to cut back and eventually quit, leaving the people they had come to know and trust without security all together.
So much of a business’s success is the way they interact with people and how they treat them. Surrounding yourself with a company that has people skills and good manners creates a positive relationship with your customers.
We have worked with many businesses for years because we show that we care. We are continually striving to use the best green chemicals and techniques that are good for the employees in the workplace as well as the environment. The owner, Ron is easy to talk to and quick to help resolve problems as they arise. We are R & S Commercial Cleaning Service and we look forward to providing you with a reliable janitorial service that helps you meet your management needs.
