Why Woman Need Housecleaning Services

Do women who work two jobs, or have three children need housecleaning services? Yes.

After six years of offering my housecleaning services I’ve come across a number of women who feel they should get their homes cleaned ONLY if they have insurmountable strife in their lives. I’m a double amputee, have 6 children, and getting my masters… I think it’s ok to ask for help maintaining my home.

Maybe we (women|) believe that by giving ourselves the time for a pedicure or getting our lashes extended (yes,that is a real thing) we have given ourselves a sufficient treat…the value of being away from a day of vacuuming and dusting. BUT I will tell you this. There is not woman alive, who, while being pampered during her hour facial, is not (even just a little) thinking…”I need to clean my house” in one way or another.

Men are judged by their work…women by how well their children are behaved and how clean and “Pinteresty” their homes are.

The days have gone when only the Snooty McSnootersons got their homes cleaned (little pinky in air).

Today’s woman has decided that they want a clean home but not at the expense of their TIME away from family, friends, or God forbid…for themselves.

Women need to shed the guilt associated with having someone coming in to clean. Women today do not want a maid. They want competent, intelligent women coming in to MANAGE and maintain their homes…THEY DO NOT WANT A MAID!

It’s important to recognize the psychology in this. When you relieve someone of the mundane responsibility they would rather not do they apply that energy to something positive…(Heather’s wisdom)

A woman with a clean home and the the lack of responsibility of having to worry about it […]

Coquitlam Housecleaning Services Makes Life Easy

Coquitlam HouseCleaning Services Makes Life Easy!
Coquitlam family says, “We didn’t realize how cost effective it was to hire someone to clean our house. Spic n Span house cleaning services are reasonably priced and Heather cleaned places we would never want to admit neglecting. We recommend this housecleaning service to all Coquitlam homes!”
SPRING is in the air … and so is all the dust, dog, and cat hair.
You know that moment when the sun shines through the window and you look down at your couch and wonder when it grew a hair blanket?
Spic ‘n Span knows and understands that cleaning isn’t just a surface wipe down.  It’s wet-wiping down that couch…and other furnishings.  It’s turning the chairs over and de-hairing the bottom of the legs.  It’s actually moving the table to remove the month long hair halos created over the winter.  I did this last week and found a candy cane… lol.

This week we are looking to expand our house cleaning services to include more Coquitlam families. We know that families are busy, and we make sure to clean the late night snacks remnants between the cushions. You wouldn’t believe all the hidden spots we find dog and cat hair. It’s important for your health to keep your house clean, and we just hope you decide to use our house cleaning services. Spic ‘n Span has developed a technique that is thorough and saves you, the customer, money hiring professional apolstery cleaners. 
Nothing like the bright sunshine of the onset of SPRING to show your home at….uh, its worst, right?  The lovely floating dust of window ledges being left untouched for a season…or two. 
 The back splash area in the kitchen hidden behind the toaster, mixer, blender, and every other gadget owned,or at least made […]


Spic ‘n Span Housecleaning Services know that With the sunshine Spring brings it also shows all the layered dust, dander, and general weather-related indoor dirt that has nestled cozily into the corners of the furniture and behind the tv.

PREGNANT…how wonderful!

The last thing you want to do is clean your home!
Let me come in and take care of your living space and let you get the rest you need.

Coquitlam cleans up…Spic ‘n Span Housecleaning

The stunning areas in Coquitlam have come to depend on the helpful and reliable housecleaning services Spic ‘n Span has to offer.
Our house cleaning service is recognized and gratefully appreciated by the residents in Coquitlam.
  We accommodate those with needs including hous cleaning, organizing, move in and outs, and a variety of home-related chores.
We pride ourselves on being the number one company called in for emergency move cleans and last minute fixers.
  Just last week we were called in to do a simple move out clean.  When the customer arrived at her new home she was devastated to see that her new home had not only NOT been cleaned, but was in a state of  disrepair.
Shewas overwhelmed!.  We immediate went to work and assured her we would have her housecleaning needs taken care of and made ourselves available all weekend and weekday evenings.
  In fact I am going on Saturday with one of my fantastic housecleaning home enhancers for what is estimated to be another 12 hours of deep cleaning.
  That’s what we do for you. We’ are prepared to do the job until the job is done right.  YOU are our priority!
With Spic ‘n Span housecleaning Services you can rest assured and take the job of housecleaning off your “TO DO” list.
We Are Cleaning Up In Coquitlam!


  HOUSECLEANING TIPS…is your toilet REALLY clean?
Spic ‘n Span Housecleaning Services has been cleaning in the Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody areas successfully for over 6 years.
  We have come to recognize not only the independent needs of each home clean, but also the viewpoint of doing a really good housecleaning job.
  For example, the only way to really do a good job cleaning a bathtub is by actually GETTING IN the tub.  It’s true…leaning and swiping just won’t do a good job.
Only by putting yourself in the area will allow you to see and feel the cleaning surface from a proper perspective. This is so important in one of the aspects of housecleaning.
  In saying that the same theory applies to cleaning a toilet and the surrounding area. You certainly are not going to get INSIDE a toilet but it just is not efficient or effective to lean over the toilet to the back and try to clean baseboards and pipes.
  You really have to SQUAT, yes I said it, to do a proper job!  A truly great job of cleaning  the toilet can be seen through the eyes of someone who has stomach flu…where every part of the commode is visible.
  On the other hand (or backend) a bathtub clean is truly appreciated from the perspective of the other end of the flu.  The insides are seen clearly as well as the outside and design edges.  Baseboards are clearly seen and edge around tub.
  So next time you find yourself in either position while suffering the flu…ask yourself if your housecleaning service is doing a REALLY detailed job.As you can see, housecleaning is more than a Swiffer and a swipe.  Any GOOD housecleaning job requires […]



SOMETIMES In the service industry, like housecleaning,  we encounter what we call POACHING. Poaching is when an employee solicits work with an existing customer OUTSIDE of the company.

Sometimes it happens the other way where a customer approaches an employee and asks them to work independently. This happened with one of my fantastic “Home Enhancers” within the last 2 weeks.  The loyal young woman called me immediately and was furious that an attempt was made to hire her without the SPIC ‘N SPAN umbrella.

It is no way flattering nor kind in nature to ask someone to work without the benefits they derive from the house cleaning  company they work for.

People who choose to do this type of thing should be aware of the consequences, not only to the contracted employee, but to themselves as well.

In the first place, if the house cleaning  company offers, insurance, worker’s compensation, and all other LEGAL protection then you are asking them to be void of these securities while in your home.

If their employee is under  contract, she is probably legally bound not to solicit or be solicited outside the house cleaning  company for a duration of time.  To do so would cause legal scrutiny and monetary compensation to the company.

Secondly, should the employee work without a safety net and is injured while house cleaning, or simply by falling on the job, it will likely be YOU, the household owner, who will be held responsible and can be sued.  This could ruin your life.

Third, and just as important, is what if something is stolen or broken.  How does one collect compensation?  Who is held accountable and responsible?

It has been my experience with my house cleaning company  that customers are eager to know […]
