Cleaning Services

We planned to write something about “everyone” knowing how important it is to have a clean home or workspace, but then someone reminded one of us about a childhood plan to make “the lived-in look” a national policy. It never worked.

Okay, many people (some people?) agree that clean living or workspaces are important for health, happiness, and the ability to find anything.

Some people enjoy the chore. Others do not. Still others wouldn’t mind cleaning if they didn’t have so many other things to do, especially when those things have deadlines.

For all of these people, SERVPRO® of Austin & Albert Lea has a selection of cleaning services.

Call us at 507-396-6644 to learn what we can provide.

Our emergency services are available 24 hours/day, so if you need a cleaning from biohazards (including exposure to COVID-19), trauma, disaster, or vandalism, we can start right away.

Here are some quotations about cleaning and messiness:

“Those single-track military minds never think to ask their cleaning staff for help in giant lethal marauding creature matters.”
- Robin McKinley, Sunshine

“Perfectionism means that you try not to leave so much mess to clean up. But clutter and mess show us that life is being lived.”
- Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“normal person's weekly chore list:
1. clean kitchen.
2. clean bathroom.
3. clean entire rest of domicile.
cleaning impaired person's weekly chore list:
1. don't get peanut butter on sheets.”
- Dave Barry

“One man with a broom cannot clean the whole world but if the whole world starts knowing that that man has an idea of cleaning the whole world, then this idea can come true! One man is one man, but one idea is one thousand men or one million or one billion men!”
- Mehmet Murat ildan

“I once thought of habits as things I do without thinking. Like stealing candy out of my kid’s Halloween bucket on November 1. A minute ago, I was at my computer, and now I’m standing in a different room stuffing my face with Skittles. I don’t even know how I got here. Bad habits. I have lots of those. I assumed when people talked about cleaning habits, they would work the same way, but they don’t. They so don’t. I have never once found myself dusting and thought, “How in the world did I get here? I don’t even remember grabbing the duster!”
- Dana K. White, How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind: Dealing with Your House's Dirty Little Secrets

“There are those who get out and live life, and there are those who stay home and clean their house.

And there are those that call one virtuous and one whimsical and irresponsible.

And there are those like us that call it your choice in the way you live your life.
You get to choose.
Nobody else.”
- Abraham Hicks
