How To Make House Cleaning Fun For Kids

Fun for kids is not usually the norm when parents ask their children to clean their room.

So, How do you make house cleaning fun for kids? Today on Ask a House Cleaner we discuss the psychology of “Being Mommy’s Big Helper” and “reward the behavior you want to be repeated.”

Angela Brown, The House Cleaning Guru has a Blue Ribbon contest that’s fun for kids and adults alike. And a proven incentive to getting chores done.

Raising kids is tough enough but with a messy house, it becomes overwhelming. Check out these tips and inspiration for family projects on housekeeping.

Brand Your Cleaning Business (Uniform Top)

Brand your cleaning business with a uniform that speaks to your clientele.

Today on Ask a House Cleaner we look at tank tops as cleaning uniforms. Along with scrubs, tee shirts, polo and collared shirts, to promote your cleaning brand.

Do you go with casual, comfortable uniform tops? Or do you go for professional uniforms?

It’s your brand, it’s your business. But here’s a proven business strategy that works.

Gloves for House Cleaning – What’s The Big Deal?

Gloves – should you wear disposable gloves for house cleaning?

In every house cleaner training or maid service training, you learn about PPE. Short for Personal Protective Equipment, and why gloves are always on the list.

Angela Brown, The House Cleaning Guru shares some big sister advice. See what really happens when there’s topless house cleaning. And how if you choose this for your business you can think ahead and plan ahead and protect yourself.

Tuck these tips, counsel and supportive guidance in your apron and save it for a rainy day.

Skipped Some Chores – House Cleaner Big Goofs

Skipped some chores is among a house cleaner big goofs. But how many times will the customer keep you if the maid forgot to clean a room?

Today on Ask a House Cleaner a distracted cleaning technician skipped some chores. (Or rather, didn’t know a room was there, and skipped the bedroom and the attached bathroom.)

When the client called – the maid wants to bail. She feels the customer is suggesting she was skipping chores on purpose. Or ran out of time, or was doing sloppy work.

Now she wants to bail on the customer because she doesn’t like confrontation.
