Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. I mostly have clients whom I visit 2-4 times monthly to do a standard cleaning on their home with a deep clean once every couple months. I have some clients that manage office buildings where I go in and clean up nightly after everyone has gone home. I get clients that are moving and need a service to come in and do a deep clean for a refund on their deposit. I take any and all clients with any kind of cleaning job necessary. Most of the clients that seek me out are already living a green lifestyle, but I also have many that contact me that saw one of my ads somewhere and it sparked an interest inside them to try it out. This is my favorite kind of client because I know that in this instance I am not only doing this client a service by cleaning their property I am showing them a different kind of clean a healthier kind for them as well as the world outside their doors.
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Make sure you find a company that lists what products they use so you can look them up for yourself to be sure that they are using green seal certified products. Companies that manufacture cleaning solutions can market their product as a green product but it may not actually be so, these companies are not required to label the ingredients as food manufacturers are. So make sure you know what products that the cleaning service you choose will be bringing to your home. 2nd ask for references so you can first hand make sure you find a company with happy clients. 3rd make sure you find someone who you can communicate with so they know exactly what it is you are looking for, having great communication builds great working relationships!
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. What products does your company use? What will you do with any trash you generate while in my home? Make sure you lay out a service plan, so the company you choose does exactly what you are looking for. How long have you been in business? Is the price you are quoting me now the final price, or will it change once the cleaning is done? Do you charge by the hour or by the job? What time can I expect you to come?

Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I love working with the people. I enjoy getting to know the people in my community. I am happy at the end of the day if I have taught at least one family that they can have a sanitized clean home without using hazardous chemicals that produce toxins in the air, water and soil. Teaching people that they can have a healthy clean home for their family to live in is my number one goal when I start work everyday. It's a bonus to teach people other ways they can make small changes in their everyday lives to live a little more "Green" and help to further protect this fragile eco system of ours!
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. When my son was born he was 1lb 3oz, he was in the hospital for 5 long months in the NICU. I started educating myself on how I could make my home a safer healthier environment for him to come home too. I learned so much in all my research and it kinda just took over my life. I not only started using Green cleaning products I became conscious of the world around me and how I could do my part to live an eco friendly lifestyle. When I was pregnant with my 4th child I decided to start a company to teach others out there how they could free up their homes of toxins and how they too could live a little more eco friendly!
Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?

We have steam cleaners for counter tops, bath tubs, sinks pretty much any surface you have we will make sure that by the power of steam cleaning there will be no germs left behind!
