Do you like you services a la carte where you pick the services you need? Or, do you want a service who see's something dirty and they clean it?
We know you're busy and sometimes don't have time to work on the what your cleaning needs are. We are a service that is easy to communicate with- you can call (This is the fastest way to get in touch with the owner) Texting is the next best thing. E-,mail is a little slower, as the owner is more hands on than technology savvy. (just keeping it real!) Some of the workplaces we clean have a notebook in a designated area where they can leave a note. These are all effective ways that work for our service business. Let us know if you have a new or different way to communicate with your customers, we are always willing to try new things.
If you have that one thing that drives you crazy that it is never cleaned on a regular basis, let your current cleaning service know. If they are too hard to get in touch with or don't respond to your needs - change services. Our current phone service is all wrapped into a package deal with internet and cable. They take forever to get in touch with (and who has that much time sitting there on hold?) Their prices keep going up and the service seems to keep getting worse. And, most important, they don't seem to care. After trying for months to work with them, we are shopping for a new service or services. Maybe seperating these services will be more of what we are looking for. Although it's nice to have only one company to deal with, maybe the next service will be able to meet all of our needs and grow with us as needed.
We have been in the cleaning business for such a long time. One of the most important things we have discoverd is that-If our customers ask for it, they can consider it done!

We face a daily struggle to grow our business. We hire good people who have family values and care about how they work, and how they live their lives. So often, these things intertwine and you come face to face with people you see in the work place as well as in your daily life. You don't always need to act professional, but just being kind and courteous can make a remarkable difference in someones day and how they think of you.
Making the right choices
Our choices and business decisions dictate whether or not we will succeed in business. It is a constant challenge to find ways to be recognized for our skill-set and longevity. So many people place under market prices on something that they themselves do not want to do. but would miss if it wasn't performed on a regular basis. I imagine that this is a constant struggle for most businesses. Wouldn't it be nice if there was some new revolutionary idea to change the way people think?
Make a difference
As for our business, we will continue to show that we care about making a difference for the companies that we work for. We want to help them stay focused and motivated and do what we can to make their offices clean and ready for them to work, so they can focus on what they need to do.
At the end of the day...we are all just people who are working towards finding our happy place.
What or where is your happy place?
Today is National Positive Thinking Day! Sharing a smile with others may make them wonder what you are up to...
Do you ever wake up feeling less than positive about the day ahead? I tend to wake up dreading everything I have to do that day. When actually I could put a positive spin on it and be grateful for all that I am able to do. I was out shopping last night for school supplies that were on clearance, as another lady and I were price checking our bargains, we were laughing about not spending the "high dollar" amounts of .48 cents. This was kind of silly, but fun! (Some of those notebooks were marked down to .2 cents!) Even thinking about it now makes me smile!
Think happy thoughts!
Be grateful for all that you have.
Respond to others with kindness.
It really shouldn't be just one day set aside to think happy thoughts. The more you try to think positive thoughts, the easier it will come to you. A good attitude will give you a happy outlook on life. Respond to others with kindness and encouraging words, it could make their day. (And yours) Just take things one day at a time,
What positive things are you going to do today?
I don't know how many times my Mom and Grand-mother said that to me, OR how many times I have said it to my own kids. Funny how those things come out of your mouth....
Think of all the contaminated surfaces you touch in a day - door handles, elevator buttons, and your cell phone.
Do you take your cell phone to the gym to listen to music or talk on the phone? How many hands have touched that equipment before you?
Checking out your e-mails while you eat. How many have touched that table, chair, or salt shaker before you?
Anybody else ever borrow your phone? Do you take your cell phone with you to use the rest room? You never know when that important call will come in! Kids like to play games on your phone, who knows how many germs and bacteria their hands have picked up? I heard on the news this morning that the cases of Strep throat have been increasing since kids have returned to school.
Here are a few ways to clean your cell phone, but be sure to check with your phone manufacturers manual for a safe method to keep you phone clean. Alcohol or electronic specific wipes can be helpful cleaners. Don't use anti-bacterial, soap or household cleaners, they can cause damage. A dry microfiber cloth can help remove some of the dirt and germs that your phone may come into contact with.
Last but not least, KEEP YOUR HANDS CLEAN!
Workplace phones are a little different, for one you can't carry them too far. Even cordless phones have their limits. Some of the companies we work for have us wipe down the phones in the receptionist area nightly, while some want all their desk phones cleaned quarterly. Some even leave it up to their employees to clean themselves. With cold and flu season fast approaching, you might want to give your phone a head start in the clean department.
If you are looking for a cleaning company who will offer that little extra "touch".
Give us a call.
