Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. For some clients, green cleaning means that they prefer we use substances like baking soda, vinegar, and lemons to clean the home surfaces.

Whatever choices you make about your preferred cleaning supplies, there is a huge variety of environmentally friendly choices for those interested in green cleaning.

Do you want the same person to come to your home each scheduled cleaning?
Do you prefer to be home or out of the home during cleaning?
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. My work stands out from others because I give a little more - ie. I arrange stuffed animals on the bed, get rid of those annoying scuff marks on stairs, water the plant in the bathroom, etc.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I love giving people peace of mind upon entering their home after a hard day of working. There is nothing more relaxing than a clean house which smells just as fresh.
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. What makes you green?
We use microfiber clothes and mop heads.
We use Dyson Hype-filter Vacuums. The vacuums are packaged, shipped and manufactured as a green product.
I do extensive research on my products and research them throughout the year to assure the products meet my standards
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. I used to babysit when I was 12 and I would do more than watch the children. I would do the dishes and the laundry. The praise I got when the mothers and fathers arrived home made my day. Plus the extra money the gave me - lol
Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
I do research on products and take on line courses in regards to the care of products such as marble, granite, etc.
Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.
A. My pricing system is not complicated. I quote based on the square footage of the home. I can usually quote over the phone unless someone feels I need to come to their home first. I find people moving in/out will often times ask me to come and see the house before quoting. Or they may accept my phone quote and advise if I get there and find it requires more time to let them know.
