When Cleaning Goes Beyond Taking Out the Dust

We, the team of BA House Cleaning, know that our job marks a difference: we transform a messy house in a clean, optimal living space. We’re always excited when we see our client’s satisfaction in their face.

However, we also understand that there are more difficulties in life than only a messy house. Cancer is one of those difficulties: a strong and treacherous enemy that a person (and his/her family has to defeat).

When you’re fighting against cancer, there’s little to no time to take care of your living space. That’s why Cleaning for A Reason was created: a nonprofit that partners with maid services to offer professional house cleanings to help women undergoing treatment for cancer, any type of cancer.

We’re proudly a Cleaning for A Reason partner. We believe in their purpose and are motivated to pursue it with our best job. We believe that we can change these female fighters—they that are fighting cancer—one life, one space at a time.

Some Background

Cleaning for a Reason was the brainchild of President and Founder, Debbie Sardone, owner of Buckets & Bows Maid Service, Lewisville, TX.[1] Several years ago, Debbie received a quote request from a lady on the phone, when the price was given, the lady told her “I won’t be able to afford that now; I’m undergoing cancer treatment” and hung up. Debbie wasn’t able to call her back (she didn’t have her number) and from that tiem on, she decided that no woman going under cancer treatment should pay for a clean house. This movement started in her own maid service company and quickly spread to other companies that also wanted to pursue this great objective.

Since 2005, Cleaning for A Reason is a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation and has provided more than 17,000 cleanings for women with cancer with a value of more than $4.5 million in donated cleanings, and partnered with over 1,100 maid services. Brands as Wallmart, Mr. Clean and Swiffer are their current corporate sponsors and their cause has spread to mass media, as seen on Oprah.

Why did we partner?

Well, why not? We’re certain that Cleaning for A Reason has a worth-to-pursue cause: to offer free professional house cleanings to improve the lives of women undergoing cancer treatment.

And this is a cause that not only complies with our Corporate Social Responsibility, it definitely goes beyond that: we also have family, friends and acquaintances, and more than once have heard about a woman fighting against cancer. We are, as a company and as humans, excited to be part of this wonderful cause, excited to help others not only to take out the dust, but to create a clean, optimal space that facilitates a soon recovery.
