We here at Cleaning For A Reason just wanted to give a shout-out to The Cleaning Authority of Spokane for winning the ‘Helping Hands’ award at their national convention this year. They are the first recipients of this reward! From their press release: Mark, and his staff of 28, donates home cleaning to cancer patients through the Cleaning For A Reason program. The Cleaning Authority is also a major donor for MS, donating a year of cleaning service to the local MS auction, and the office makes numerous donations to non-profits and fundraisers throughout the year. Congratulations to them!

In reality, businesses are usually the ones who are even more concerned about prices than the customer! It was a great speech to help attendees get motivated this morning. … read more →
