    I started out cleaning 5 years ago.  I did it to supplement income but as I got further into it and started researching cleaning techniques and strategies, green cleaning always came up.  I felt strongly about it with houses that had new babies and small children.  But also as a cleaner I am exposed to the chemicals 3-4 times a day with the different jobs I do.  I am in the process of becoming more legit and not a trunk slammer and I was amazed by the MSDS size I have for the cleaning chemicals I used. 

    Therefore I am slowly switching out chemicals as they run out.  I have started with using Simple Green.  I also have had to switch cleaning suppliers as one company discouraged me from using green products saying they don't carry them because they don't work. 

    I will now clean everything using green cleaning techniques and you can find my service located here in the Green Cleaning Directory.

    We will implement green cleaning services by using Eco-friendly products and procedures.  In implementing procedures going green we will use products such as Sodium carbonate, Vinegar, Tea tree oil, ect.. We will also drive fuel efficient vehicles, and recyclable used goods. Together these practices will help us operate and service our customers in a manner that puts minimal damage to the environment as least as possible. 

    Being Green is important for the health of all the buildings occupants as well as our self. Products that contain harmful chemical agents can damage organs, and harbor bacteria instead of cleaning them away. Green products are more friendly to surfaces that we clean. They do less damage witch helps them last longer and maintain there appearance.

    Green Cleaning has a myriad of benefits for both the client and business sides in every transaction.  Not only are products used less harmful to the body and environment, it offers substantial savings to those "Green" businesses that is in turn passed on to the client.  Everyone wins.

    As a result, Amaze Clean is a fully green company and has committed to using only the products that have been green certified (no harsh or harmful chemicals).  In many instances, we use natural  ingredients.  An example is a vinegar and baking soda solution that is used as an all-purpose cleaner to deodorize and disinfect surfaces.  Other all-natural solutions are used, such as water and baking soda for grout cleaning.  All in all, helping the environment and the economy is a priority at Amaze Clean, and we are proud to be green.

    Customers are people, too!

    At IJCSA we are learning that customer satisfaction is the most important part of the business. In order to keep the customer's business, we as business owners need to do several things to make the customers experience with our company the best they have ever had.

    To gain excellence in Janitorial Cleaning, we must master customer service which is what IJCSA trains us to do. A few keys to good customer service are -

    1) Listening to the customer to find out exactly what they think makes a building clean and well-maintained. Every customer and facility is uniquely different.

    2) Documenting/Remembering key elements about their industry, facility and even the individual themselves to help the contractor to meet and exceed that particular customer's needs.

    3) Continually maintaining open communication so that concerns/problems are identified and resolved quickly before the customer considers looking elsewhere for excellent service.

    As Cleaning and Janitorial Business owners we are gaining the training and knowledge thru IJCSA  to succeed in having completely satisfied customers!

         Whether you have been in the cleaning business for decades, or are new altogether, there is one thing that will not change: the importance that a customer will hold regarding the happiness and success in this business.  They are the life-blood of your career choice, they drive your continued development and economy. So it is almost imperative for you to make it a priority to keep them satisfied, to ensure yourself many years of continued success.    

         With this said, there is no guarantee that every customer will be a happy and complaisant one.  But realize that the service that you provide is not only hinged upon providing a beautiful, clean environment - but also to establish a relationship with your customers who were willing to place trust and confidence in your ability to deliver your services. This is why IJCSA is a great place to show others how invested you are into your business and community. Take the time to hear them out, the good and bad, and allow yourself to extend a hand to help them, so they can help you grow in the the direction that is necessary.   After all they are the judges who will establish your reputation. Wouldn't it be in your best interest for them to be pleased?
