A Cleaning Philosophy

There was a husband years ago who was surprised that a man was going to be cleaning his beautiful estate. Here’s a quote from Cheryl Mendelson’s book Home Comforts, “…I am convinced that such attitudes toward housekeeping are needlessly self-defeating. You can be male and be domestic. You can have a career and be domestic. You can enjoy keeping house. No one is too superior or intelligent to care for hearth and home.”

I’m a maid man Nashville, and I’ve got an offer for cleaning you can’t refuse!

The objective of cleaning is not just to clean, but to feel happiness living within that environment.

Households are busy places, works in progress where there is always something needing immediate attention and always something more that can be done.

Housekeeping is an art: it combines intuition and physical skill to create comfort, health, beauty, order and safety.
