What Our Mission Means To You, the Public.
Cleaning has been identified as a significant source of stress in our society, even predating the onset of the pandemic. It begs the question: Why is there such frustration and shame surrounding this essential aspect of our lives?
At our core, our mission is to challenge and transform the generational misconceptions that surround the cleaning industry. These misconceptions have detrimental effects on families, businesses, professional cleaning providers, and even the cleaning products we use in our homes and workplaces.
Sanitation, as recognized by the esteemed British Medical Journal, has been hailed as the "Greatest Medical Advancement in Modern History." This acknowledgment couldn't be more accurate. Cleanliness and hygiene play a paramount role in safeguarding our health and well-being.
Our mission is to break down the barriers of shame associated with this trade, empowering individuals to embrace cleaning as a skilled and necessary profession. We aim to equip the world with an authentic and accurate understanding of the importance and expertise involved in the cleaning industry.
By opening doors for all people to shed the shackles of shame, we foster a culture where cleaning is respected, valued, and recognized for its vital role in maintaining a healthy environment. Join us on this transformative journey as we celebrate the significance of this trade and promote a positive perception of cleaning for the betterment of individuals, families, and businesses worldwide.Learn More
Why Cleaning Providers Need to Join Us.
Studies have revealed that the primary obstacle to success and growth for cleaning companies lies in the quality of service they provide. But why is this such a prevalent challenge in our industry?
The root of this challenge stems from the historical perception of cleaning as an unskilled trade, lacking in necessity within our homes and businesses. Until we change this false belief within our own mindsets, teams, and business structures, the quality of cleaning companies will continue to suffer.
When the AHCA (American House Cleaners Association) was established in 2019, cleaning services were predominantly viewed as a luxury offered by individuals associated with "low cortile" positions. While significant progress has been made in shifting this paradigm, there is still a long way to go.
Traditional models of cleaning services and franchises have often prioritized top-heavy structures that focus on managers and owners, while undervaluing the essential role of the cleaning providers. These providers are often burdened with KPIs and micromanagement, treated as mere "extra hands" assigned to perform "unskilled" and "unimportant" work.
We are dedicated to challenging this outdated paradigm through authentic and comprehensive education, inspiration, and community building. Through our efforts, we have certified thousands of cleaners nationwide and have empowered numerous companies to grow in healthier and more sustainable ways.
Join us in this revolution against the stigmas and ignorance that plague our industry. Together, we can dismantle misconceptions, elevate the importance of cleaning as a skilled profession, and create a supportive community that fosters excellence and success.
Servants Heart Charity Cleanings
We deeply recognize that cleaning is not just a want but a fundamental need and a social responsibility for all professional cleaning providers.
In the 1800s, our society reached a critical understanding that germs play a significant role in the spread of diseases. This realization marked a turning point in our development as a society. Even before the discoveries of advanced medical and surgical procedures, vaccines, and antibiotics, this understanding alone led to a remarkable transformation. Life expectancy more than doubled, highlighting the tremendous impact that cleanliness and hygiene have on public health.
It is with this profound knowledge that we approach our professional cleaning services. We understand that our work is essential, particularly for individuals who may be physically or financially incapable of maintaining a clean environment on their own. Through our charitable services, we aim to extend a helping hand to those in need, ensuring that they can enjoy the benefits of a clean and healthy living space.
We embrace the responsibility that comes with our profession and are dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of individuals and communities. By providing vital cleaning services, we contribute to the overall well-being of those who rely on our assistance.
Together, let us continue to uphold the importance of cleanliness, hygiene, and social responsibility. By supporting one another and fostering a culture of care, we can create a healthier society for all.
