Exciting changes at CLC!

FOR OUR CLIENTS:

First and foremost, we are hiring! We have offered a part time position to a new team member, Elvia. She will be training directly with me for a few weeks, and during that time I will be sending you a short biography about her. She will be taking over some of my clients for me once she is fully trained. Know that she is kind, detailed, and an amazing house cleaner! We only hire the best and our interview process is intense.

Elvia is a long-time Chicago resident, and along with her husband has raised her two sons here. She has commercial cleaning experience, and is excited for the challenge of learning residential cleaning. Outside of work, Elvia has a cosmetology degree, does clothes alterations, and mentors married couples with her husband, Fransisco. 

Since we're growing at a quick rate, we'll be training new cleaners over the next several months, but our owner Emily will be around to manage, train, and ensure that our cleanings meet your highest standards. Please let us know if you have any questions at all!

Recommended Product - ecloth

If streaky mirrors are making you crazy, we have the solution for you! The Window Cleaning Cloths from E-Cloth are lifesavers! We use them on all the mirrors we clean, as well as glass-top tables, and even on hi-shine counters. The pair of cloths (one for damp drying, and one for polishing) is available at ecloth.com

If you're using the Window Cleaning E-Cloths, be sure to run the light green one around all the edges of the mirror after cleaning it, to wipe up all the water that collects at the edges of the frame. Next, use the dark green cloth to polish out any smudges that are left over. Just another way you can enjoy professional clean while we're not there. 

Enjoy your sparkling mirror!

 

Fall is here in Chicago!

Fall In Chicago

What have you been up to this Fall? We love seeing the unique views that come as a result of the season change. 

Cleaning high-rise Chicago Loop homes is always interesting and different every day! Here's another great snap shot:
 

Shower cleaning tip

Your shower cleaner is too expensive!

Meet Clean Building Bathroom Concentrate, affectionately known at CLC as "Pink Stuff". A 1- gallon bottle is less than $15, and since it comes highly concentrated, it will last a VERY long time. This is the solution that we trust to cut soap scum, and not get us high on fumes while we clean. Pour some in a spray bottle and get going- just remember that the ratio is 1:20 Pink Stuff to water.

Happy cleaning!
