Lisa is also passionate about giving back and has partnered with ‘Cleaning for a Reason,’ which is a non-profit organization who offers free cleaning services to women undergoing chemo therapy. Lisa’s advice to avoid the daunting task of spring
cleaning is to keep your home organized all year long. “Everything should have a place. Instead of dropping your keys, coats, shoes and mail at the door, organize bins, baskets and hooks marked for your items. Kids usually love getting involved. Give
them bins for their toys, crayons, tickle trunks for dress-up. It’s a great way to help and encourage them to be organized adults,” she suggested.
Lisa is very conscious of the environment and the health of her clients. “My favorite cleaning products are environmentally friendly and include, Norwex, Shaklee, and Mellalluca. When I use these products I can rest, knowing families and their furry friends are not breathing nor ingesting harsh fumes or vapors.”
