Hi, I’m Judith. I’ve run my own house cleaning company for over 20 years. I have served many of my current customers for more than 18 years, through births, deaths, earthquakes and economic recessions.
I have gone through the same things you go through everyday: long work days, crazy schedules, cancellations, fussy customers, bad checks, hovering customers, breaking and paying for damaged items (ouch!).
Along the way, I learned how to manage my time and money. I developed rules that customers respect. I mastered systems of running the business that allow me to work fewer hours for more money. I learned that when you are a self-employed house cleaner, showing up when you say you will and getting the job done to the same high standard each time is 80 percent of success.
With this site, I help brand new house cleaners and seasoned veterans get practical answers to common house cleaning questions. With practical answers, tips and strategies, house cleaners can move beyond surviving day to day as the “cleaning lady or “cleaning guy” to thriving as self-employed cleaning business owners.
I live in Washington State with my husband and two gardens.
