What is Green House Cleaning....Really?

Posted by Maid Maddie on Sep 29, 2012 10:57:00 AM

The term "green cleaning" refers to the use of vegetable-based materials to clean surfaces rather than chemical-laden detergents and solvents. Don't assume natural products are safer as there are a few things to know about successful green housekeeping.

Are You The "I Can Do The House Cleaning Myself" Kind Of Person?

Posted by Maid Maddie on Jun 11, 2012 1:15:00 PM

As the owner of my own house cleaning service for the past 25 years, I have not always scheduled having my home cleaned by one of my fabulously talented house cleaners.  Why?  My thinking was that I used to clean other peoples homes, so if I can clean it myself, why have someone else clean?

I have always been an "I can do it myself" kind of person. It has helped me grow a very successful house cleaning company that serves the Seattle, Tacoma, Bellevue, Everett and surrounding areas. 

Can you relate to the "I Can Do It Myself" way of thinking?  Here are the reasons why I now do not do my own house cleaning:

  • I am a very busy woman and my time is valuable

  • I have other things much more important to get done that I enjoy doing more than cleaning house

  • Cleaning house is very hard work and I am allergic to hard work (  ;

  • I am a perfectionist.  When cleaning my own house it takes much longer because I can’t stop myself from getting out the toothbrush and magnifier!!!  So.....I tend to put house cleaning off until I "have more time"!

  • I get things "organized" before the housecleaner(s) come so I tend to keep my house more orderly.

  • Saving the best for last:  It MAKES ME VERY HAPPY to come home to a clean house from a long day of work.

There really is not anything better than having a clean home.  It is relaxing, refreshing, reduces my stress and makes my week so much more enjoyable.  I can take a hot bath in my clean tub and crawl into my freshly washed sheets because the cleaner has made my bed.

How about coming home to a clean bathtub?  Fill it up, light a few candles, and enjoy!  An evening at your home spa!


You can schedule house cleaning occasionally or regularly.  We have a two-hour minimum (one cleaner) for weekly or bi-weekly cleaning so if you only want a bathroom and/or kitchen done – that can be scheduled.  Just know that on larger houses, a full cleaning cannot get done in a two-hour cleaning. Two-hour cleanings work really well for very small houses (one bath), apartments and partial cleaning of a larger home.

Give us a call or hit the pink button on our website for a FREE online estimate.  We can custom clean so that if you want to eliminate parts of your home to reduce the time, we can do that!  Or if you want to add special cleaning projects, we can do that too.

Coming home to a clean home will put a BIG SMILE on your face!
