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

Live lean, live green, live clean.

Cleaning is some of the hardest work there is.  By many it is the least valued, the runt of  endeavors.  By few it is highly valued and valuable.  Take the time to visit your abode.  Cleaning is a process, not a destination.  Take the time to clean as you go.  Even a little will help.  Be good to yourself, learn to love your self.  Use products that don’t pollute, that do not harm your kids.  It’s amazing what water by itself will clean.  Even so, waste not.  Live lean, live green, live clean.

Santa Fe Green Cleaning is a strong, fast, agile company with potential for serious growth both locally and nationally.  Cleaning is somewhat of a paradoxical task.  Most people are clueless about cleaning but everyone thinks they are an expert.  Some do actually know and have imparted important, even foundational information that has helped Sfgc become the company that it is.  For the most part however, to stand in service to your client, you simply cannot do what they want.

Nobody wants to clean.  I guess nobody wants to wait tables either.  Service industry jobs are pretty tough and should be regarded with a bit more respect than they currently are.  Many on the receiving end are indignant, rude and just plain horrible when it comes to the treatment of service industry workers.  Many do not know how horrible they are being.  It’s simply their place in society to demand and it is the service workers place in society to submit and serve.

Sfgc’s clients are a mix of over-expectant, demanding types and amazing, completely respectful and understanding types.  One time I had to clean 4,000 sq. ft. by myself in 3 hours.  My client simply was super-appreciative and understanding of my end of the deal and not fraught with discontent about their end of the deal like many others have been.

Entitlement should not just refer to government programs but should refer to the capitalist, service for hire, spoiled adults we have become in today’s American economic system as well.

Shut up and get to work.

I am hesitant to start this post because things have been so challenging.  Sfgc has and continues to help me grow, learn and realize the folly of knowing.  I am not talking about knowing in business.  Business is all about knowing as best as you can the results and outcome of the deal.  The folly of knowing what the hell is going on.

I am stifled by how many people around know sooooooooo much.  It’s nauseating.  To make matters worse, I have been guilty of exactly the same thing.  This interim profession has completely cured me of the knowing it all blues.  The current difficulty I have is listening to the know it alls talk their ass off incessantly.  It’s truly a drag.  I did lose my desire to freaking talk all the time years ago.  I see people talking so much it’s not talking any more, it’s throwing up.  It’s espousing their greatness.  True discussions are and should be rare.  I guess for some, the job is second and talking is first.  I personally get the greatest high from completely pouring my insanity into doing a super-human job each and every time I am out on the field.

Shut up and get to work.

Healthy Cleaning Rhythm

The nugget of any cleaning job is a healthy cleaning rhythm.  In fact, the only way to get a nice nugget for your work is to have a healthy cleaning rhythm.  Honor your needs, your rhythm, your ability to feel good and make money.  Healthy boundaries are vital to survival in every aspect of life.  It is no different in the cleaning business.  Here is the deal:  you need to be able to take full advantage of the familiarity with the job.  Our society diminishes the value of our individual time.  Our individual time is essential to survival.  If you squander the time you have to yourself that is a different issue.

If  you squander the opportunity to take advantage of a healthy cleaning rhythm, then again, we have a different issue.  Our time is one of the most valuable resources that we have.  It is our chance to improve and move forward.  Our society encourages and perpetuates throwing our time away like garbage.  Santa Fe Green Cleaning has yet to work a job for pay by the hour.  We get paid by the job.  Your client will have no problem if you stay beyond your scheduled time to do extra work.  Your sub-job is to assure that your client has no problem when you leave before your scheduled time.  Oh… and make sure they pay you the full cleaning amount.  Without this leverage there is little advantage or motivation to running a cleaning business.  Maybe any business.

When you are familiar with the job you will expend less energy, possibly less time to get more work done producing a result of a super clean environment for your client.  If your client is giving you lists of different stuff to do with each cleaning then a healthy cleaning rhythm will become impossible to achieve.  We actually charge per item for lists.  We very rarely stay late to accomplish tasks on a list.  Generally our clients do not give us lists.

Do your clients care if you succeed?  We are succeeding.  We are Santa Fe Green Cleaning.  Visit us on the web at .  Call 505-310-3653 for a free estimate.

Cleaning is personal

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.

A Clean November

That sounds to me like a better tag line for November… buy one special get one free.  It’s got a clean ring to it… Anyhow, will be redoing the postcards and seeing if we can get some action on November… it seems that the bigger one off cleaning jobs work great for the company.  The regular cleanings are certainly the cleaning bread and butter but the bigger jobs are a bigger catch.  A bigger take, take down, jack pot.  Ok, being realistic, pragmatic and honest, November is not going to be like Spring.  The tag line though makes cleaning in November seem a more attractive idea, to me… success on specials has been 100%.  Let’s hope this continues.  Of course as all of Sfgc’s followers know, we will keep you posted.  Even during the Giant, Detroit playoff or the Saints getting manned up by Denver and Peyton.

Thank you for all you do.  Here’s to A Clean November.
