November Newsletter

November. November. November.

So, we meet again! The leaves have begun to fall, we’ve already experienced our first snow and it feels like bedtime around 5 p.m.

I am just going to cut to the chase, you don’t want to get home from work and clean. It is pitch black outside. Your kids are begging for dinner, your favorite tv show is on tonight or maybe you just want to crack open a bottle of wine. You may be reading these things thinking, oh wow, that sounds simply amazing. It doesn’t have to just SOUND amazing, it can BE amazing! But time is running out! Our schedules are filling up and you need to click HERE right now!

Now that you have filled out your quote request to get your house on the schedule, scroll down to see what fun things we have to share this month!

Recently, we worked with Linn Area Credit Union to collect supplies for teachers! We are so excited to be partnering with them again! As most of you know it gets awfully frigid here and some don’t have the proper clothing to handle the weather. We are partnering with Linn Area to collect NEW scarves, mittens, gloves, and socks for Cedar Rapids area students! We will have a collection box in our office if you would like to drop any off at 712 J Ave. If we already clean your home or office? Let us know you have donations to make and we will pick it up at our next clean! Together we can continue to make a difference in our community!

Last, but certainly not least, our November winner! After each cleanwe ask that you write a review so that we can continue to serve you better! At Absolutely Clean we are always looking to grow and better ourselves. We don’t know if we make mistakes unless you let us know! We also don’t know if we did the best clean ever unless you let us know! (Although, every time we clean we aim for it to be our best ever.) Each month we pick one of our clients from the reviews we have received and send out a special little gift!

This month the winner is Michelle B! Thank you for your continued support. We value you as a client and truly enjoy leaving you with an Absolutely Clean home!

That’s all for today folks! Don’t forget to schedule your cleans for the holiday season so you can spend more time doing the things you love with the people you love.
