Are You Unhappy with Your Current Cleaning Provider?

So you have made the leap to hire a cleaning crew to take care of all your organization and cleanliness needs.  You find yourself to be too stressed or busy at home or work to take of these tasks yourself, and furthermore you want to have a professional make sure your house or business place is as clean as it can be.

There’s only one problem: They’re doing everything wrong!

Several things can go wrong with a cleaning crew and the way they handle your work.  They could simply just not do the job right.  You’ll come home after they’ve finished up and find that spot you left in the kitchen is still there.  Or perhaps you’ll look at the floor and notice they didn’t even bother to vacuum.

Sometimes the issue is different.  They could do a great job of cleaning, but they act like the house isn’t yours in the first place.  They may move things around to places you don’t want them to be, or your things may turn up missing because they’ve been organized in a way you’re not used to.

Luckily, we have a solution for you.  Simply switch to A1 Cleaning San Jose!  If you’re switching from another cleaning crew, the first thing we’ll do is listen to your qualms with your current service providers.  We’ll make sure we know exactly what you want us to do AND what you don’t want us to do, and we’ll remember it.

If you specifically want your house organized the way it is, but well cleaned, we’ll listen.  If you do need some organizational skills, we can help you with that too.  But if we ever move anything, we’ll make sure you know exactly where it went, and why.

If you don’t like the products your former team used, let us know, and we’ll work out a cleaning product list that fits your need.

At A1 Cleaning San Jose, we’re there to treat you to the cleaning team service of your dreams.  We’re always friendly, always thorough, and we’re never stubborn (except when it comes to kitchen stains).

Go in your local Walmart or general store, and you’ll see rows and rows of various cleaning products.  These kinds of options can be intimidating, and it’s hard to know what product will be best and most efficient in cleaning your house.


            The goal is always getting a product that will do the job both visibly and under the surface, but is also quick and easy to use.  Hired cleaning crews can help with this, as they will know the best of the best products are.  However, it’s good for you to keep a few items around the house for touch up cleaning throughout the week.


            Here is a list of some essential cleaning products you should have in your home. A1 Cleaning San Jose House Cleaning Check List :

A1 Cleaning San Jose we believe, "Cleanliness as a Way of Life!"

We all want a clean and happy home, but have you ever thought about how cleanliness can be a way of life?  Think about what it means to be clean, neat and organized.  More than your physical environment, being clean is about compartmentalizing our life, but it’s also about having a fundamental flow between these individual parts of our lives.

Think about it in terms of something small: your desk at home or in your office.  In your desk, you have multiple drawers and multiple areas in which you keep different things.  You may have a certain file in which you keep all your taxes and financial information.  In another drawer, you have an area where you keep your work files, client information, etc.  You might even have a section for your hobbies, and another for family files.

All in all, however, the desk represents the physical objects that your life revolves around. The desk as a whole functions as a tool to keep the different aspects of your life together one single, accessible place.

This all may sound rather abstract so far, but consider the way that desk can represent your life.  We have so many different roles and faucets of our life that somehow have to come together as one experience.  If we have clutter at our desks, we have clutter in our lives.  If we start mixing up our separate roles and areas of our lives, we stop being effective in the things we do.

Cleanliness can be in our physical environment. It’s about organizing our things and creating a peaceful, serene environment where everything is in its place.  If we can get all the different parts of our lives in order and create a peaceful, serene space in our mind, we can feel that same sense of peace that a clean room or house gives us in our life as a whole.
