A shout out to services I love: Homemaid Sustainable Cleaning

I always get this look of awe/shock/disgust when I say I have a maid. Like, “isn’t that what rich people have” kinda stare. Well, I once read a book that said if your time is more valuable than your money, then spend the money so you can enjoy your time.

And so I got myself a cleaning service. A green cleaning service to be exact. And it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.

Meet Homemaid Sustainable Cleaning. They are kinda hippie, but without the patchouli. When they’re not using their own cleaning concoctions to spray down your abode, they use Biokleen, which is also all natural, safe, free of weirdo chemicals and of course, good for the Earth.

The cleaning crew mainly consists of a small team of two – Laurel and Thomas. I only just met Laurel for the first time, and she’s one of those people you can immediately see being friends with. Thomas, with his wide eyes and attention to detail, gets the job done when he’s not biking all around Seattle as a messenger.

And speaking of bikes, that’s their mode of transportation. It doesn’t matter if you live down the hill, around the hill or over the hill, they’ll trek all over Seattle just to make sure your place is clean as day.

Need more ways to save the planet? Homemaid Sustainable Cleaning also sends our invoice via email to save on paper. And they take Paypal so I never have to write a check! They even buy 1-kiloWatt hour of Renewable Energy Certificates to compensate for the carbon emissions created by using the vacuum cleaner in your home. I only really understand half of what this means and that’s only because I’ve seen Back to the Future one too many times.

All that said, for $27 an hour, not only is Homemaid Sustainable Cleaning on the cheaper end of maid services, but I also feel good that my house doesn’t smell like a chemical factory when I come home. To me, that’s invaluable service.
