Premiere Cleaning Services in Richmond, Virginia

Good Morning, Classic Touch Readers!

How can we spring clean and be creative at the same time? I for one am at my most creative when I start from an organized, calm space. Then I thrive. Ideas flow. When I know where everything I need is, and it’s not a stumbling block for me to find something, then nothing stops me. My creative goal is much easier to reach!!

Spring brings with it a sort of nesting feeling, both creative and encouraging. I want to refresh and reorganize. I live in the city of Richmond in an old house built over 100 years ago. We love it. Every spring (and Fall) I find myself pulling out and sorting thru items on shelves, in boxes, baskets, bins, cabinets, closets and even in corners! Our weather here in Richmond and Chesterfield and Henrico and Hanover is usually not the worst weather and so I can remove things that I have finished using and cart them right out to the car (or trash in a few cases) and take them that day to the Goodwill, etc., wherever it makes the most sense to donate whatever it is I am removing.

When I do this I feel very good and I definitely function better. With less clutter I know where to start any new idea and I feel open and calm.

At Classic Touch Cleaning we cannot bundle up your used items and remove them for you, but we can make your home clean and fresh by doing a deep clean after you finish organizing and re-organizing things again this Spring. So whether it takes you days to sort and pare-down or just a piece of a day here and there over a month, let us know when you’re ready and we will come and clean for you and give you the best clean house you have had maybe since moving in , or at least since the last time you did it all by yourself!! Instead of doing all that work, cut your work load in half and ask Classic Touch Cleaning to do the cleaning for you. We schedule cleaning jobs all day long Monday thru Friday, every week. We will clean all of your house or part of it. We have a 2 hour minimum that first time, we will send a 2 person team and they will be in and out with both thoroughness and efficiency because we specialize in this! And…we will customize the job just for you.

With Covid-19 still here, but hopefully on its way out, many of you are still working at home. We will come in with our masks and gloves and Lysol products, etc. and give you the sanitized home you crave. After working from home for months and no let up in sight, treat yourself to the calmness that cleanliness provides. Whether you have time to reorganize anything or not, call us at Classic Touch Cleaning and schedule that one time deep clean. We’ve got it. You’ll love it!

We’ll get you scheduled and you’ll feel so happy that you called!

A Day in the Life 2020-2021

Hello, Good Morning, Classic Touch Cleaning, May I help you?

You have an apartment where everyone has Covid and you want it cleaned? The occupants will all be home? No, we are sorry but we can’t send anyone, you need to be quarantined for 14 days, but thanks for calling. Do you want me to check with you in 14 days? No? Okay. Thanks again.

Hello, Good Morning, Classic Touch Cleaning in Richmond, VA. May I help you?

Everyone in your home has tested positive for COVID and you want to move your appointment for Tuesday ? Yes, we can do that. You think you need to wait 3-4 weeks? Of course, I’ll put you tentatively for 4 weeks from Tuesday, that would be your day anyway. Yes, I will not send anyone until we talk first. Thanks for letting us know. Take care!

Good Morning, Classic Touch Cleaning, Richmond, Henrico & Chesterield, May I help you?

Yes, Good Morning Mrs. Smith! Oh, you want to stop your cleaning for two months because COVID is getting worse, but you are well and want to isolate? Yes, we understand. I will mark you as a skip for two months, but don’t hesitate to call us if you need anything, we will still be here when you need us. Yes, we are keeping all the Covid precautions up that we have added and yes, almost all of our products are Lysol brand. Yes, we do carry Comet also and that has bleach. Thanks so much for calling, we’ll touch base in a few months.

Morning, It’s Classic Touch in the Richmond Area.

Yes, we wear masks and gloves in every home, changing the gloves very frequently. Pardon? Can we sell you the gloves? I’m sorry, we have to supply our teams with gloves and our suppliers only sell us the amount we have always bought in the past. Do we sell masks? No sir, I am sorry. We are a residential cleaning service, we are not retail. Thanks for calling!

Good Morning,

Yes, we’d be happy to come and give you an estimate. We serve the Richmond Metropolitan area. Where are you located? Powhatan? Oh, we are located in Richmond and we do no go quite that far. We do serve Hanover, Henrico & Chesterfield as well as Richmond City itself. I do know of a great company in Powhatan that I can share the name and number if you’d like. No? Alright, well thanks for calling. Have a nice day!

Classic Touch,

It’s a great day at Classic Touch Cleaning! Yes, Good Morning. Upbeat? Yes, I am working at it, thank you! How can I help you, are you interested in a house cleaning? Great, tell me about your needs and I will be happy to answer questions.

Well, yes, we have made sacrifices during this covid time. Yes, we have stayed open the entire year, yes we did lose employees and customers for some time. No, we did not take advantage of the special government loans, hoping to leave more for others who might not have been able to stay open at all. Yes, we did dip down to about 20% of our customers base but we are back up to about 75% and we are excited about that. Yes, Thanksgiving and Christmas this year were extraordinarily busy, not especially more cleanings but more re-schedules. Did you want to ask me about how we clean or our rates? No? You are just interviewing companies for now. Well, I hope I was helpful. Thanks for calling.

Hello…

CLEANING DAY…NUMBER 235

Well here we are still working everyday at Classic Touch Cleaning. We are considered essential and we are happy to be plugging along. It has been 235 days since March 1, 2020 ( google tells me). It feels like longer than that!

SO much has gone on and so little. We lost a lot of customers and employees and then we got most of them back! Some are still being isolated for reasons related to health and that makes sense to us. So far there have been no Covid cases whose path we have crossed and we are grateful.

We are still taking all the extra cleaning precautions because there is no reason not to always keep them in play, and with the winter in Richmond coming we will want to be more than extra cautious for you and for us.

I think we all have found extra new safe things to do for outings that are not events. I know we like to go somewhere and look at the scenery on weekends and bring a snack for the car and come back the same day. I hear a lot of great ideas from the conversations with our patrons.

Take care Richmond, Henrico, Hanover and Chesterfield. Wear your mask whenever around others and we will all do better. Make the holidays special for those around us that we can be with, and there will still be many happy memories. We are a creative people and there are so many good things this quiet time can bring us. I see it in families and even tho’ things are harder in some ways, they are special too. There seems to be much reaching out and caring all around. You can’t beat that!! So lets count our happy days more than our hard days and settle in for a lovely new season!

essential services or a luxury

A cleaning service is not a luxury anymore, ..it is a standard of Health.

When COVID-19 hit in March we wondered if we were considered “essential’ in Virginia. It turned out that we were, but our employees understandably were not comfortable entering homes with so much unknown and many of them elected to stay home themselves. Many but not all.

At the same time many Classic Touch Cleaning homeowners opted to stop their cleaning service until they were more sure about the risks related to others and to contact within the home. At this point in time everyone has been back to work for months and our staff is cleaning almost as many of your homes as before.

We are in a position to accept new business and we do so with caution both for our employees and for our new customers and for all our existing. customers.

Many of you are now working from home, keeping small children and young students on task. Their school schedule demands more of you whether your child’s school is fully on line, doing a shift schedule or actually attending school daily. Juggling is hard.

We can help! Please don’t sit behind closed doors and panic because cleaning is just one more thing you need to handle!! Call us at Classic Touch Cleaning! We have 36 years of experience and we know both safety and cleaning. We follow the State of Virginia’s Covid rules and have added some of our own. Our crews can and will clean for you in a safe and hygenic manner.

We do weekly, bi-weekly and every 4 week cleanings. We also do move-in and move out cleanings. We come with supplies and tools in hand completely sanitized before each individual home cleaning.. or we will use yours if you prefer. You can trust our methods. We are ready to take your home into the fall and the next year with cleanliness as your very high standard.

We get it! Give us a call or email. I will answer all your questions to help you decide your comfort level. Thanks and take care!!

ONCE UPON A SPRINGTIME

It’s spring here in RVA. Our trees blossomed this year without storms claiming the flowers immediately and so our streets and avenues are once again lovely. It’s amazing how beauty produces calm and how good, great!, calm feels!!

Spring and summer cleaning provide a similar benefit. When our homes are clean and the things we own are in place we feel like we can take a sigh of relief. For those who are in tune to this feeling we look for it and it makes us feel grounded.

If you need help with any chores around the house, please keep Classic Touch Cleaning in mind. We are here to serve you and to help you catch up when time is not on your side. Whether you live in Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, Glen Allen or Mechanicsville give us a call. We will get your home scheduled and be out to help as needed quickly.

We are not a day of service provider and we stay fairly booked ,but give us call and you will get an answer and your home will be scheduled as soon as possible. Our goal is not to be a quick fix or to employ many different people. Our goal is to treat you the way we would want to be treated and to clean your home well…so if you choose a deep cleaning you get a deep cleaning. We will ask about your needs and your goals

for our visit and customize the work for you.

different spring cleaning

Sometimes we are ready for a change and our home brings the solution.  We can rearrange furniture, repaint a room, knock out  a wall or buy a new home.  In that new space you can organize better, move up or move down in size, open space and storage. Cleaning before or after remodel or before or after you leave your current home and before you enter the new home is needed. Most real estate sales require that the property must be ‘broom swept’ or cleaned to a ‘turn key’ condition.  We understand what this means and can help you in any  way.

When you move into a home or finish having your current home remodeled, you want to feel it is sterile, ready for you and for your loved ones to inhabit and feel comfortable…when you want to take a long hot shower and relax knowing it is yours alone.

Did I mention the white dust? I think of white dust as insidious because it seems to return and return if not handled properly or if left too long in the home. We tackle it by dry cleaning before we damp cleaning or product clean.   Although we may be experts on removing white dust, we suggest  it’s best done quickly before it gets into your air or heating systems.

At Classic Touch Cleaning we specialize in cleaning the details, because we don’t think it’s clean until it’s really, really clean… nooks and crannies and all.  Moving and remodeling is a time when  we  clean the interiors of the cabinets, drawers, closets, walls, doors, woodwork, floors and a myriad of things that can’t usually be reached.  It is possible for them to be emptied from time to time so we can clean, but when we clean during transition we can get them all at once!

I can get the cleaning bug at my own home and find it such a rewarding experience to clean out what we use everyday and make it better, more organized and easier to find.  When it comes to cleaning, especially housecleaning, it’s good habits that make it easier. We at Classic Touch Cleaning, located in Richmond, VA, train for intelligent cleaning, including efficiency, and we work to remove distractions so we can fully focus on the job while we are on the job.  Whether we clean in Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield and Hanover, one of our secrets to great cleaning is liking to clean.  It makes us happy when we come to work and happy when we leave each house looking its very best.  Give us a call or email. We would love to help you too!

 

WINTER CLEANING STRENGTH

It seems as if winter, and cleaning,  come to Richmond just after the holidays and helps us slow down and sort thru things…all kinds of things. In housecleaning we are putting away some decorations, putting out others, maybe rearranging furniture here and there and making our homes cozy and calm again.

I think that’s some of the strength that winter provides  to many. We move a little slower, we plan a little more, we call, we clean, we organize and we feel good about our days. It’s a wonderful cycle…and here in Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, Hanover and all around we are lucky because our cold is not too cold, our snow is usually not too long and our lives can enjoy the beautiful changes of all the seasons. So any season let us clean your home for you, but especially consider it now, while winter is here and a little down time would feel so good.

A clean house is a calm house.  I have always known that clean and neat can be synonymous with serenity.  If you live anywhere in the greater metro Richmond area and feel like this is the time for a deep clean, a fresh start or a new beginning, please call or write Classic Touch at 804-262-6979 or classictouchcleaning@verizon.net and we will be glad to help you out. Even if your home is in an area where we don’t do regular cleanings we will do a one time cleaning for you to help you get ready for whatever your needs may be.

We love cleaning. As I have said before. It’s a win-win proposition for us because when we get to clean for you we are doing something we love to do and you are getting a sparkling clean home and free time to boot!

So if it seems a good thing, it may be a good thing. Let us know what we can do for you and we’ll give you an idea of time needed and costs so you can decide if this is the right time for you to finish some of your projects and let us do the cleaning(s) for you.
