“ADULTING” can be hard. Upkeep and maintenance of our homes are the top priorities on that long list of adult responsibilities. After all, coming home to a clean house from a long day at work is something that we all look forward to. But, sometimes, no matter how hard we try cleaning every nook and cranny, there are just some stubborn spots that refuse to budge.
Thankfully, there are professional cleaning services that we can count on to lend us a helping hand. I personally love Clean Queen in Cagayan de Oro because this small niche professional cleaning company was set-up by Erica Go. She is the older sister of my daughter’s good friend.
At the tender age of 22, this budding entrepreneur is very inspiring because of her drive to succeed on her own terms by relying on her skills, hard work, and determination. I recall buying French macarons from her, too, as one of the first side ventures that she set-up while she was still in college.
Erica said she is strongly influenced by her parents who are business owners as well. They have been supportive of all her endeavors, giving her advice and pushing her to be her best so that she can be self-sufficient and independent. On top of that, she also credits her primary and secondary school, the Abbas Orchard for grooming her to handle business.
She said: “Abbas has an entrepreneurial thrust. As early as elementary, we were encouraged to be creative and to find our own passions. By high school, we were handling our own farm businesses. The school had a micro-economy set-up and by the time I reached 4th year high school, I was tasked to lead a business for chicken meat. The experience tested our abilities and gave us a small preview of the ‘real world.’”
At present, her newest baby is Clean Queen, which is a mobile cleaning service that specializes in Deep Water Vacuum and Steam Cleaning. Imagine dirt and grime being sucked out easily from the deepest recesses of beds, sofas, carpets, etc.
Often, we think that these items are already clean after simple wiping down and normal vacuuming, but upon seeing the water in Clean Queen’s Deep Water Vacuum turn blackish-brown, we will realize what we thought were clean are actually embedded with years of piled up dirt, dust, grime, dead human skin cells, etc.
Erica said: “The vacuum is our main service, where we use a unique type of vacuum that sprays water to agitate the dirt. Then it uses super strong suction to get out those stubborn dirt and dust. Steam cleaning is actually an add-on. This is a type of cleaning that uses the heat of the steam to sterilize and disinfect, killing 99.9% germs and bacteria.”
This enterprising young woman also explained that steam cleaning is also perfect for other materials like leather and wood furniture that cannot get soaked with water. It can also clean other items like car doors, car airconditioning system, curtains, crib frames, and many more.
Erica noted that their cleaning methods give “deep cleaning” because they both penetrate even the deepest areas of the furniture unlike standard vacuum products. She narrated: “We are often called to clean common stains and even liquid spills. We encounter vacuuming up a lot of coffee and wine stains that were supposedly spilled many months back. Our clients are always pleasantly surprised at how easy we can erase them.”
To thoroughly clean and keep the items germ free, here are the steps that they follow: First, they do steam cleaning to sterilize. Second, the items are sprayed with their cleaning agents. They use eco-friendly chemicals, but if the spots are stubborn, they add on a chemical cleaning spray. Third, their team brushes the item to loosen the dirt. And finally, they proceed with the deep water vacuum, which is a shampoo-like process that lifts away all the disgusting dirt.
This company with its team of realiable and trustworthy professionals is easy to find with their Facebook and Instagram accounts with the name - Clean Queen CDO. Erica said just send them a message on either social media platforms or text their number at 09175451099 to get a quote and to book their services.
