How your kids can help clean (and what a relief!)

Sometimes people are surprised how willingly my 9 year-old does the dishes and takes out the trash and when I think about it I too am surprised he does these things, given that he would rather focus on Legos than anything else on earth.BUT! I know the reason is that I started prepping him early. I made vacuuming seem fun when he was a toddler and gave BIG praise for it. Toddler spills I asked him to clean up. Sometimes this worked, sometimes it backfired. But I let him know early on that he would be part of how we keep this house clean.At age 8 I started him on dishes. It was a big struggle. Months-long investment. Frustration over how to load the dishwasher and how he was getting too much water on himself. We made it a game sometimes or sometimes I would simply […]

Stress Relief, Right Now

This is a time when we need as much stress relief as possible. The constant negativity from the news and not knowing what is going to happen with schools and families far away wears on us. Too much going on, not enough relief. It can be suffocating. At Asheville Cleaning Company one thing that we value as colleagues is helping each other with work loads and positive language. It is vital now more than ever to look out for each other when so many are lacking a close community. Being kind to each other leaves us with a warm feeling inside. We should show that kindness to ourselves as well. This can take many forms. Sometimes a daily break with a warm cup of tea, soothing music and meditation. Exercise and walking in the sunshine helps your body rid itself of the stress hormones we are building up […]

How to Control Indoor Pet Allergens

It is one of the best times of the year in the Asheville area. Spring is here and with it an array of beautiful colors and smells. We have enjoyed a few rounds of snow showers this winter, not it is time to get outside and enjoy mild temperatures and incredible views.

Your pets are likely loving the season as well. Rather than making quick trips outside while braving the chill, they are able to run and play. Your dog may sprint full speed into a field of wildflowers, while your cat may lounge in the sun of a flower bed.

Tips for Reducing Indoor Allergies

When you suffer from allergies, you often try to limit your contact with the outdoors – pollen can be a nightmare for some folks! But did you know that the quality of your indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than even the worst outdoor air? According to the EPA, indoor air pollution is one of the top five environmental dangers, and if you have allergies, the problem is compounded. Fortunately, there are many steps you can take to clear the air and breathe easier.

Sanitizing Your Business

We can help! This has been such a challenging time for so many of us, trying to get used to this new sense of “normal”

…and looking forward to a glimpse of the way things used to be. We certainly are at Asheville Cleaning Company!One thing we are doing right now is being a part of helping people have a sanitized environment. There are a few “essential” businesses/commercial businesses around Asheville that we are sanitizing regularly and a few “non-essential” businesses that need a clean while they are closed and want to be ready when it is time to re-open! At Asheville Cleaning Company, we all find this to be incredibly important and adds additional elements of skill and care to each job we go to. Our cleaners have been re-trained on our new cleaning method and they take it very seriously. They have each agreed, in […]

COVID-19: Steps we are taking

In response to COVID-19 we are taking extra steps in our sanitizing processes that we already have instituted. This includes extra sanitizing in our washing machines, sanitizing door handles at your home or place of business, sanitizing and washing hands and sanitizing equipment more frequently than we already do.

If any of our employees are sick or have been exposed to someone sick they will not be coming into work.

We have let our customers know they should tell us if they would like us to sanitize additional areas that are not normally on their work orders. This is a great idea as this greatly helps reduce the spread of germs!

We hope our community gets through this soon and we would like to remind everyone to help each other out more! WE need each other.

And remember to go outside and get some fresh air!
