Summer!

Posted on June 27, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Now that Summer is officially here, I hope you are enjoying it.  If I am ever tempted to complain of the heat, I just remember what Mr. February is like!

Regarding climate, here   is another quote by the ever quotable John Ruskin:  “Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating.  There is really no such thing as bad weather, only  different kinds of good weather”

So don’t spend your weekends cleaning.  You should be enjoying this beauty while it’s here.  Just  call Sponge & Sparkle  to take over the cleaning!

What is Real Service?

Posted on June 10, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I found this quote by the venerable John Ruskin, that I just love:

“When love and skill work together, expect a miracle”.

One of the reasons that it speaks to me, is that a clean sparkly home is a small miracle.  At Sponge & Sparkle, I see this every day.    To clean professionally is a real skill that we teach to all our new technicians.  But there has to be something else in the mix for that extra dash of magic, and it is, I think, an attitude of service.  It means to put one’s best effort into the job and to   give of one’s self – which is  to express love in our work, and to all that we come into contact with in the course of this job.  To practice the Golden Rule, to be in the flow, to be with  the zen, may not happen every time, but it happens a lot here.

When we leave a home, that we have cleaned beautifully, we leave a little bit of ourselves behind.  We have made a huge difference in someone’s life, and it feels good to us.  That is  real service.
