Find the people and the services that better fits your personality and lifestyle but also your budget. Get a feel for the person,since he or she will be in the privacy of your home, get references. But most of all have your expectations set and communicate well with the service provider. Most are flexible and willing to work things out. Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share? A. Cleaning services are affordable and not a luxury. Hiring a cleaner is not a sign of housekeeping incompetence but A sign that you know how to best spend your time. A clean home is also a healthy home. That extra 100 that you would spend at the mall or a game, can mean a home free of germs, pathogens and allergens. An organized and clean home also brings clarity and organization to other areas of your life as well, improving mood and self stem. Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out? A. The size of the house and the work needed is important to start. Every job is different. When I look at the job site I can have a better idea of how long it will take and what I will need to get it done. At this time we can also negotiate rates and a system that works for both the customer and I. Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do? A. My work stands out because I seek clients who don't think cleaning services are for them. Usually houses that are already clean , get cleaning services. I am looking for the guys out there, too embarrassed to bring a girl home to their mildewy bathrooms and piled up dishes. The ones out there with quirky, pesky habits you keep in the privacy of your home. Career women, with no homemaking skills,but who still want a nice home to show mom...These are my folks, and clean is easy! Q. What do you like most about your job? A. I like knowing that I am helping someone enjoy their home and family more since they don't have to spend their spare time cleaning up! Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer? A. Most people are in denial of how dirty something really is and how long a job would take. A dirty house is not a reflection of someone's character, just a lack of priorities and a system. Things pile up in the everyday hustle and bustle and then it becomes overwhelming. What can be accomplished in 2 hours? is the most common question. My answer is "tell me what is most important for you and we'll go from there." I guide them through the system and teach them how to develop one for easier future visits. Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work? A. This happened to a fellow in Atlanta that had a cleaning service. He employed a new comer.He left the guy at the job site, when he comes back he asks the helper how it went. The guy says" she'll be really happy when she comes home 'cause I killed the snake in her bedroom!" He killed the pet snake! This is something I will not ever do! Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession? A. I want my customers to know that I am a nice guy, working to make a living here in Jacksonville. I come from a working class background and started working at an early age. I am also a great cook . I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends, cooking, and playing Golf. I Don't sing while I clean. I am a proud cleaning man! Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work? A. I grew up with a aunt who owned 40 rentals . so I have clean homes all my life. and I can do every thing a handy man can do!!!
