Depending on the species and breed, hair can be an especially challenging task to keep on top of. If you’re like most of us and have an extremely busy lifestyle, a professional cleaning service is a great option for normal cleaning, but especially for homes that have a furry friend or two running around the house!

Children are often much more capable then we realize and even from a young age can help with cleaning tasks that will help your home stay clean and beautiful between your professional cleanings. These tasks are not just helpful to you but help your children grow into productive members of society. One way to help get your kids to do these tasks is to stop calling them chores. Try calling them tasks, jobs, or a fun name that you come up with. By avoiding the word “chores”, you’ll have a chance to remove the negative image from these important activities.

The amount of cleaning you do will directly affect how much time they need to spend in your home which will relate to increased costs and less cleaning done.

Excellent training and equipment

After thorough training commences, the new employee takes and must pass a physical and written exam before they are certified as a professional cleaner.
  • We make every effort to send the same team to your home each time. Due to promotions, turnover, illness, and other factors, sending the same team each time may not always be possible. We will train your new team members so that they will know how to best take care of all of your needs so that your cleaning will remain consistent. Please let us know if we can do more to keep you satisfied and loyal.
