New Process of Cleaning

Posted on December 12, 2017 at 4:35 PM

Our staff have undergone an extensive training during 2017 of making every step count. 

By wearing aprons, they carry gear in their pockets so that they don't have to back track to their supply bucket to get that duster, cloth, windex or other item they need to clean the spot off your table or window.  It has been a huge learning curve.

Posted on February 8, 2014 at 6:10 PM

But if the ad isn't a real legitimate House Cleaning service, what is it?  It is usually someone operating illegally.

I have been in business cleaning homes since 2005...
