Hi, I'm Amy Bates!

I own a professional cleaning business, have two kids, two dogs, a husband and a VERY busy lifestyle!  And let's face it...keeping the house clean with an on-the-move family and schedule can be challenging!

But guess what? We DON'T have to spend all of our free time cleaning! Our homes can be a place of sanctuary, not a constant to-do list of scrubbing! So, let's start a conversation, share cleaning ideas and tips, and make life easier for us all!
