As a DFW business owner, it is very important that we promote, network & support locally in DFW. CYCS and G2web only take on Dallas / Fort Worth / Denton / DFW Texas clients with a good reputation & we will not take on a new client that would compete within your service industry.
I am looking for a cleaning company to support and promote!

Wow…… we have a cleaning website that you should check out for during those in between cleaning service weeks or for the cleaning services that you like to do yourself! Clean Inspiration has cleaning videos for your kitchen, bathroom, windows, blinds, wood floors and even your BBQ.
1) A professional cleaning service already has a vast amount of practice in the cleaning industry, which usually results in good work in general due to their experience in the field. (We have many years of Janitorial experience!)
2) Hiring a cleaning service is the perfect solution if you have a busy schedule; in this case we take care of all the cleaning so you don’t have to worry about it! You can then concentrate on other, more important areas of your life instead of stressing about maintaining a clean working environment.
3) Custom cleaning plan- let us create one for you so we can make sure all of your needs are met!
4) When you hire a commercial cleaning service, you can be sure you will always have a clean office to work in; which can make your life much more enjoyable and your office more relaxing and aesthetically pleasing.
5) Another benefit of hiring an office cleaning professional is that most professionals are extremely reliable and you can count on them to provide you with the highest quality of cleaning services (which also includes professional green cleaning equipment).

14 seldom-cleaned areas that need your attention this fall!
Chances are you stick to a set list of weekly cleaning chores in your home. Here is a checklist for 14 not-so-routine cleaning tasks that should get your attention anywhere from 2-4 times a year with fall being one of them. Warning…… this list might seem like a lot to tackle at once, so be gentle with yourself and try to tackle one a day or week. Also, you don’t have to do these yourself, assign tasks to other family members or hire a cleaning tech to do some of the mini projects with you.
Undersides of counter overhangs, tables, chairs and other surfaces. People tend to grip the edges of things especially when leaning. The resulting accumulation of grime and gunk may not be visible but can harbor germs and trap odors.
Insides of drawers and cabinets. Emptying and cleaning cabinets, drawers and organizing solutions creates a great opportunity to sort and reorganize their contents and to toss expired items.
Drawer housings and tops of cabinets. Pull drawers all the way out if you can. Depending on what a drawer gets used for, you may find crumbs, scraps of paper and even a few long-lost items that got pushed up and out the back of overfilled drawers.
Inside your dishwasher. Especially if you live in an area with high mineral content (hard) water, you may notice deposits or odors building up inside your dishwasher. The good news: very little scrubbing is required. Use an appropriate solution in an empty dishwasher on a high-heat cycle; the only thing that may require a good scrubbing is the edges around the dishwasher door.
Inside your washing machine.Newer washers may offer a sanitation cycle; be sure to use to remove germs from the washer drum and agitating elements. This cleaning can also be managed manually with careful application of a 1:10 bleach solution.
Light fixtures and bulbs. Cleaning dirty light fixtures and dusting bulbs improves the illumination of your home just as the days start growing shorter and nights longer.
Toys. Dirty toys can harbor germs and contribute to an overall impression of dinginess in your home. Colorfast plastic toys can be soaked briefly in a solution of bleach and water then rinsed thoroughly and dried. Smaller toys can be cleaned in your dishwasher.
Small appliances. Think coffee makers, toasters, mixers, blenders, portable fans, built-in bathroom fans and so forth. While many small appliances only need a little extra attention to scrubbing out the crevices, your coffee maker may need decalcification to improve taste while portable fans should be dismantled and cleaned thoroughly either before placing into storage for winter or removing from storage during the warmer months.
Closet floors. This is a quick hit. Next time you are vacuuming, dusting or mopping your floors, remember to pull everything off your closet floors and go over them as well.
Dryer vent system. Lint accumulation inside your dryer housing and venting tubes poses a fire hazard. A quick vacuum four times a year is all it takes to minimize the risk.
Refrigerator vents and coils. Dust accumulation here contributes to inefficient cooling and greater electricity use. If you have water filtration or automatic ice making system, you may need professional help to pull out the appliance and accomplish this maintenance (if you have a plumber in for any other job, it’s a great time to ask for this help). While you’re at it, replace your water filters too.
Window screens and housings. While washing windows is a 2X/year task, screens and screen housings should be vacuumed and/or cleaned at least once every season to improve views and prevent more pollen and dust from making its way into your home.
Chimneys and flues. This is important home safety maintenance that should be conducted by a professional at least once a year. If you didn’t do it in the spring, now is the time before winter sets in.
Computer keyboards. You may be in the habit of dusting keyboard surfaces, but they occasionally need a little inside cleaning too. Compressed gas for doing so can be purchased at local office supplies stores.
Most everyone knows that good, trust worthy and loyal cleaning techs or janitors are hard to find. Once you find an office / business cleaning company that you can trust and do a good job every time….. hold on to them. It is probably a good idea to tip them from time to time so that they feel appreciated and valued! Speaking of TIPS, here at www.cleanyoucansee.com we have some cleaning tips we teach our cleaning techs so that they will be asked back every time.
Always have a check list and check it twice. Cleaning while paying attention to details will always impress the client.
Don’t ask for tips or circle “gratuity appreciated” on the check list or thank you note you leave for the customer. Some clients will not tip in the $$ sense, however, can afford to put in a good word for you and help grow the business. Staying busy and increasing the client base is just as important. A non tipping client is better than no client at all!!
Take some pride in what you do. Show that shine not in just your counter tops, but on your face too. A smile will go along way. Leave a nice note and a nice signature.
Remember where things go. Some of the best cleaning techs put things back exactly how they were in the first place. Take a moment to visualize the space so that it can be recreated after cleaning.
Do not leave anything behind. Make sure to grab all cleaning equipment such as wipes, rags, spray bottles, buckets, vacuum and mops. Include “remove all cleaning equipment” with a list of items on the check list so that everything looks in more order than when you arrived. Especially make sure to not leave any personal items behind.
There are many other “cleaning tips” that we know have developed over the years. What are some cleaning tips that you follow that make you a top cleaning tech performer?
Sure, why not? Have you seen men clean their boat or cars that they care about? We found this article www.teresasfamilycleaning.com/house-cleaning/what-men-can-teach-us that suggests that women could learn a thing or two about improved cleaning techniques from men. Clean Reflections in no way implies that men are better cleaning techs than women, in fact, we think that we all can learn to improve our cleaning skills from each other, men & women alike!!
Shine a Shower Men are resourceful when it comes to cleaning products. “Wipe your shower walls with car wax to prevent soap scum from building up,” says Steve McQueen, a Merry Maids cleaner in Roswell, Georgia. “But you shouldn’t do it too frequently. Once a year does the trick.”
Make Glass Gleam Forget paper towels. There’s a reason guys at the gas station use squeegees. “They’re the best tool for windows, mirrors, tile and shower doors,” says Steve Zeitler, cofounder of the Citra Solv natural cleaning products company. One to try: OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Squeegee ($12.99)
Unclog a Drain A few bucks is all it takes to fix this problem. “A $7 tool called the Drain Claw removes hair from the drain with a simple push-and-twist movement,” says Lou Manfredini, host of the national TV show House Smarts. Bonus: no harsh chemicals down your drain.
There are many more “men cleaning tips” to choose from in this article. Go give it a read and let us know on www.facebook.com/cleanyoucansee what you found most helpful. “I don’t know about you, but I will be shining my shower and purchasing a Drain Claw very soon!”
