first post 2014
It’s a New Year and the crews are working in homes around town today as they did on December 24th and December 31st. Everyone’s confused because we all feel like it’s Monday constantly, with a day off in the middle of the week for the past 2 weeks.
AS GLORIOUS AS THE HOLIDAYS ARE, ITS ALWAYS GOOD WHEN LIFE SETTLES BACK INTO A ROUTINE AND WE CAN FOCUS BETTER ON YOUR NEEDS EACH DAY.
I HOPE IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
Here’s a cleaning tip for this week:
When all the festiveness and decorations have been packed away and your home might still need some swparkle, call Classic Touch for a pick me up. It will do you and your home some good. How about $25.00 off that visit if you mention that you read this January 2nd, 2014 blog. Expires January 31, 2014
July is a good time for mid year reflection. I find that cleaning my own home is an excellent starting point for this. There is something healing about changing pace from the fast demands of the world and retreating into myself to give my own home a good cleaning. Not only does cleaning produce better health for everyone, but it creates serenity and peacefulness in my environment…as opposed to the chaos of everyday realty. It creates serenity and peace of mind. (a bonus we can explain to employees!)
Why do the public areas of large institutions, public or private, pay such attention to the physical appearance of their public face? The entrance areas cost a fortune to produce and more to keep immaculate. We enter them and feel the immediate calm. It is amazingly sustaining for us as humans to have order and beauty. It speaks to us of safety and security and serenity. It is the same with our homes…only harder to master than a lobby in a building. After all we are not just passing through …we are living there. The service we offer to the world is a very intimate thing, causing innumerable challenges that we as owners struggle through daily. Many people outside of our industry couldn’t believe what comes through our desks. Most of us do it well or we wouldn’t be here, but it is not easy. Cleaning my home myself, when no one else is there, if possible, reignites my pride in what I do, what we do, and helps me stay in touch with the importance of our work.
Cleaning for myself also helps me teach, correct, supply, understand and lead. I don’t suggest we all clean our own homes. I only want to share with you my feelings about our fledgling industry and the pride we need to be feeling in the services we offer. We are not just cleaners, we are some of the most important hinge-pins of our culture. And when we do it well and professionally everyone benefits. That’s why it is so important to grow this industry professionally. There are so many niches we can fill. We are the silent creators of peace and calm helping the world to be able to function better. We make space for thinking, for relaxing, for engaging one another in healthy pursuits. We make arriving home the sigh of relief it is meant to be. I am so proud of each of you who were brave enough to stand up and be an owner of a cleaning company, stay with it, join ARCSI to learn and grow your skills, and to care about doing it to the best of your ability.
Thank You. My hat’s off to you. You are AMAZING people!!
Breaking News: RESIDENTIAL HOUSECLANINGS are on the rise. A recent indicator of economic improvement is the recent surge of homeowners who are turning back to their professional residential housecleaning services. All around Richmond the phones are ringing. At Classic Toiuch Cleaning the phones are ringing off the hook. Manager, Brenda Stankus, says that this is the best spring influx of new and returning business in 3 years. House cleaning is often perceived as a luxury whenever money is tight, but that is often false economy in today’s culture, as both adult members of the household are employed outside the home and do not have time to clean. A healthy household finds time to be together and professional residential housecleaning services like Classic Touch Cleaning help greatly with that goal. The money spent is but a pittance compared to the luxury of guilt free leisure time
Richmond residents are telling us that they would much rather have Classic Touch Cleaning do their housework for them and spend their free time doing things they choose or are passionate about. SPRING CLEANINGS are an additional help to the household and are very different from routine cleanings. In fact research shows that without annual SPRING CLEANINGS routine maintenance falters. So pack your bags, go to the beach and let us come in and clean for you…or don’t pack your bags, stay right where you are, have us come in and clean for you. Classic Touch Cleaning can do a top to bottom cleaning or regurarly scheduled maintenance, at your pre-determined level, by your wish list to get you the clean you are dreaming of.
