Crate that animal before house cleaning? The house cleaner wants to know if you can crate that animal because she says he’s dangerous. Mad dogs and maids go way back. There are aggressive dogs, mongrels, and pups, but they’re just being territorial.
Once the mutts have had a little dog training you won’t need to crate that animal. Today on Ask a House Cleaner the cleaning lady gives tips to train the canine.
Angela Brown, The House Cleaning Guru says dogs with aggression are harmless to maids once they know you. Save the cage. Train your pooch.
Texting is the new phone call. Or so house cleaners seem to think. House cleaners and maid service prefer texting rather than calling. (Per a recent poll by Angela Brown, The House Cleaning Guru.)
Are you going to market your cleaning business by texting? Today we Ask a House Cleaner about the old-fashioned phone call and customer service via text.
Every savvy cleaner has a strategy and this tutorial will keep you from getting fired by text.

Today on Ask a House Cleaner we discuss when to text a client and when to use the phone. Communication is more than speaking with clarity, it’s about reconnecting and memorable interaction. Don’t just be a house cleaner, be a savvy cleaner.
I Skipped some chores is a house cleaner goof. 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 skipped some 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.
