Hiring a House Cleaner in Asheville

This year has been one of the strangest in recent memory. No new or longtime resident of Asheville expected to spend so much time inside their homes, unable to explore western North Carolina. Nevertheless, our area has made a concerted effort to ensure our neighbors and community would be as healthy as possible. We never stopped caring for each other and have been able to do our part to reduce the effects of the pandemic in our area. 

One of the consequences of spending so much time in our houses, however, is the realization for many of just how easy it is to fall behind on cleaning. Your typical daily routine may keep you distracted from messes, but if you are still working or doing school remotely, now the mess distracts you from your job and education. Furthermore, with your family spending more […]

National CleanUp Day

Let’s Celebrate National CleanUp Day & World Cleanup Day!

Recently, National CleanUp Day has announced its return on September 21 and World Cleanup Day on September 19.

The outdoors are a wonderful activity for those who enjoy hiking, walking and climbing. Like many beautiful places to visit, Asheville offers a vibrant art scene, historic architecture, and nightlife downtown that is surrounded by North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains.

This year, Asheville residents and visitors who cherish the outdoors can come together to help clean up trails, parks, and communal spaces. Two green holidays, National CleanUp Day and World Cleanup Day encourage people to make an effort to reduce litter and recycle. Asheville’s city and nature deserve to […]

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 […]

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.
