A State-of-the-Art Cleaning Service for your Home & Office

Cleaning is personal

on December 3, 2012

Cleaning is personal.  Being someone’s personal assistant is different than being someone’s professional cleaner.  How are those boundaries established?  My personal assessment of the overall situation in Santa Fe, New Mexico is that very often the clients of cleaners can be beginning, middle and end of a demise in the service that they so seek.  First and foremost, if your cleaner is not making enough money then game over.  Are you wondering why your cleaning crew are unenthusiastic, late, slow and otherwise lousy?  If you do not value the service with your checkbook then you will always receive sub-par service.


Secondly, cleaners are not servants.  It seems that being a personal assistant could be a lucrative profession.  For whatever reason, the lines between personal assistant and cleaner are VERY blurred.  I should take a moment to emphasize that Santa Fe Green Cleaning clients are the ones who understand that our profession is cleaning and that we KNOW what to do.  In fact, the truth be told, we more often than not, know what to do better than our clients.  No question though, a good team effort is always in order.


The ironic and even comical side of the story is that the client who directly creates an impossible situation for their cleaners, then complains rabidly.  It’s surreal how often this happens.  So here is my advice:  chill out, let us do our job, pay us well and appreciate the work we do.  Cleaning, after all is already pretty low on the totem of jobs.  Try to be appreciative.
