House Cleaning in Tampa, St Petersburg and Clearwater, Maid to Order FL

Maid to Order FL Business Law: We operate our business based upon “The Law of Value” – The Law of Value ultimately determines your “true worth.” Your true worth is determined by how much you give in value versus how much you take in payment.

*That Being Said…We also believe that the terms “quick” and “clean” are rarely spoken in the same sentence. In fact, they are usually oxymoron’s! A thorough cleaning takes time and attention (elbow grease aside).

Quick Fact: When you start to think an expert is expensive …stop and think about what amateurs can cost you with mix-ups, Injuries, lawsuits or even theft!

Three Recommendations for the Cleanest Home

Recommendation #1:

You should have Regular Cleanings. Dirt is an Abrasive (like sandpaper). So every time you step on the carpet or flooring, you’re grinding in the dirt. It’s proven that clean carpets and flooring will last much longer than dirty carpets or flooring. A proper frequency of cleaning and vacuuming is critical, not only for your flooring, but for the overall health of your home.

Recommendation #2:

Getting up the dirt is not the only reason for a cleaning. Air contains bacteria, fungus, pollens, and smoke/smog, and hundreds of other chemicals. When you or your family members come into your home, the bacteria, and other chemicals, not surprisingly, come inside with you to rest inside your home,

Recommendation #3:

A clean home is a healthier home. One major source of recurring sickness within homes can be dust, pollens, or fungus that may lay dormant within your home. If you do suffer from allergies, asthma, emphysema or any other breathing problems, you should know that cleanliness is a key to staying healthy! Tobacco smoke contains over 4000 different chemical compounds, 43 of which cause cancer. Even if you don’t smoke, those chemicals come in contact with your hands, shoes, and clothing throughout the day and unfortunately get tracked back into your home.

The bottom line is… A Routine household cleaning is imperative to your Health!!
