Cleaning For A Reason in Fort Walton Beach

In 2004, I received a phone call from a lady (Lisa) wanting to hire our services for her home. At the time, I was answering all the phones, scheduling all the work, paying all the bills and picking up a broom if needed. In a nutshell, I was doing it all. Lisa eventually hired our service and we've been helping her even since. She's seen us go through lots of changes and we've seen her life go throught lots of changes too. She's now married to a wonderful man and she also recently discovered that she has breast cancer. Lisa is doing much better now and she'll be back on the beach soon enough. But right now, she's battling through some chemotherapy sessions. Hopefully, all of you know that we partner with Cleaning For A Reason to provide free cleaning services to women undergoing cancer treatment. It's a wonderful charity to be involved with & we are proud to have provided nearly 100 free cleanings over the years. Here's what our long time friend Lisa has to say about Cleaning For A Reason and Two Maids & A Mop.

"I'm in the Cleaning for a Reason program and haven't had the energy to clean my own home. Thank you so much Two Maids & A Mop for your generous support of people undergoing cancer treatment. The ladies were courteous, friendly, and cleaned like crazy! They were nice to the dogs and cat, and most of all, very nice to me, even though my house was a mess. They asked what was most important to me and then went right to work as requested. I give them a ten, no doubt about it!!" Lisa of Fort Walton Beach, FL

St. Patty's Day Party in Pensacola

Who says that you can't have your cake and eat it too?? We had a big time this morning in Pensacola. Fun times indeed - take a look at some of the pictures.....

As usual, not everyone was willing to participate in the picture. But if you wore green, we mandated your participation. Here's the lucky few who wore green today!

This cake has now been eaten.

Meet Our Most Loyal Employee In Pensacola

April has been our Star Employee for more than four years. That's an amazing feat for any employee in today's workplace. But it's even more amazing for a cleaning company. The average turnover in a cleaning business is more than 300%. To put that into perspective, the average cleaning company is changing its entire staff at least three times per year!!

Of course, we're much different. Our turnover level is extremely low. If you're a current customer, you've probably seen the same people each time for some time because we rarely lose an employee to another job. In April's case, she's the perfect example of what hard work can do for you.

April has performed just about every task - including office work, sales support and, of course, housecleaning. She's awesome and if you know April - you know why she's so awesome. Every company could use a bunch of April's. Thank goodness she found our company more than four years ago.

Busy Days In Birmingham

Our Birmingham office just keeps getting busier and busier. I wish that I could take some of the credit, but all of the credit goes to our employees. We've got an awesome group of people working in Birmingham and they amaze me everyday with their caring attitude and hard work. The cleaning industry doesn't always get portrayed in the most positive light - but I'll match this group up against anybody's office. They not only work hard but they truly care about our business' success. Thank you!! (Not all are pictured)
