Summer is Almost Here!

Non existing clients/New prospects-

Interested in getting your house in shape before the kids are out of school? Do you have lots of summer plans? Wouldn’t it be nice to focus on all the year end events with school and enjoy planning a vacation to actually relax on without worrying about keeping up the house too? Let us take a load off your plate…schedule 4 cleanings before May 31st and get the 4th one 1/2 off. Then sit back and enjoy!

Current clients-

Summer is just around the corner! Are you ready to enjoy it? We appreciate being able to provide a consistent service that helps you enjoy all that this time of year brings. We do our best to accommodate schedule changes however the sooner we know in advance the better we can provide options to keep a consistent schedule for you. If you know you have a vacation or event planned even 6 months in advance let us know if you need a different cleaning day! We can also coordinate pet sitting or other small tasks such as watering plants that keeping us on schedule even while your gone can be extra beneficial. Peace of mind while your gone!

Cleaning Tip-

A good habit to actually accomplishing a cleaning task is to STOP multi tasking. Too many times I hear of clients not being able to finish cleaning because they got side tracked with laundry or cleaning out a closet which then they ran out of time for the actual cleaning they wanted to get to. A great rule of thumb is to get all the picking up and putting away of things the night before. If you do it too soon in advance it’s just going to be taken out or accumulated again. Establish the habit of only picking up, then no picking up while cleaning. Laundry often stops at folding & putting away if you start a cleaning task while waiting for the machines to finish. Who remembers the Fly Lady? If she herself wasn’t ADHD then I think her thought process created alot of ADHD housekeepers! By going from room to room and starting several tasks at once will eventually get things done but if you don’t have time to finish all of them you just created several unfinished projects and accomplished nothing. Have things straight & orderly before any cleaning and focus just on cleaning. Have your supplies ready to go and don’t stop till it’s finished!

Don’t Forget-

Love this time of year with being able to open some windows for fresh air? With just a small window of opportunity before it gets hot who can resist! How dirty are your window tracks or screens? If it’s been a while then along with the sweet spring air you’re also blowing in dirt & allergens that have accumulated along the window. Consider having us do a quick clean up of the tracks or we can help with the screens as well! Need a full window clean…we’ve got that covered also! CAA Cleaning is a full service cleaning company that does it all!
