About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I closely monitor my employee's work to ensure that the service my clients receive is top quality and that my high standards are always maintained. The health and safety of my clients is my number one priority!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love teaching other moms how to easily detoxify their homes without making drastic lifestyle changes. I was shocked when I learned how unsafe the average home is due to cleaning chemicals. Detoxifying my home was easier than I thought, and it feels great making a difference in the lives of others. As the wife of a cancer survivor, I like to think I am maybe even helping other families avoid what we experienced.

    Nature Maid does a fabulous, professional job cleaning my home every week without using chemicals. My allergies are so much better after I started using this company. Highly recommend!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Oh my, yes. I am constantly reading, blogging and participating in chemical, healthy living and environmental awareness events as well as staying up to date on the latest developments in HEPA and other cleaning standards. I was recently invited to speak at the "Live and Sleep Healthy in a Toxic World" event at The Clean Bedroom. Check my blog and come on down!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I wanted to build a sustainable local business that would help families here in Austin. I am passionate about health issues, and as a busy mother I understand how personal it is to choose a cleaning service - and how great it is to have help! I love helping mothers like me.
What types of customers have you worked with?
General home cleaning and maid service, organization, de-cluttering, home detox consulting, helping chemically sensitive or highly allergic clients
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I shared my recipes for my all-natural cleaners with a woman who has an intensely allergic four-year-old who can barely leave the house without suffering breakouts and illness. She says it has helped!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Investigate the cleaning products they use, and review those products at the Environmental Working Group website. Make sure when you are hiring a service you are getting what you want!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
There are a lot of cleaning companies to choose from. The majority are franchised, or run by individuals who aren't invested in their client's health or the health of their employees. I am in this industry to help improve people's lives - not just by helping them clean their home, but by helping them create a healthy environment for their family. From what I've seen both as a maid service customer and as a maid service business owner, that's unique in the residential cleaning profession!
