ABOUT THAT ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM:
I understand that the idea of having someone you don't know come into your home
when there's a contagious virus floating around out there is of concern to you,
and it should be.
But as you're already thinking about it, consider this:
Somebody needs to be cleaning your home
and if it's not going to be you -- then I'm your next-best option.
I'm not a novice house cleaner. This is not a hobby
and it's not a filler situation until my real job comes back online.
I've been working in other people's homes for decades
and have always had to be concerned about
whatever contagions and cooties might be floating about.
My own health and safety, as well as that of my clients, is something I take seriously.
I want to be very specific about one thing right from the jump:
I AM NOT LOOKING FOR ALL AND ANY TAKERS.
I am looking for the perspective client who understands
that wearing a simple mask in public is not an infringement of their Constitutional rights,
and that keeping a few feet away from people that you wouldn't share a shower with
doesn't need to be something that sets your hair on fire.
The sooner we all start adulting, the sooner we all get through this thing.
Most of the CDC recommendations for my profession are not new to me,
but here's what is newish:
I've incorporated the CDC's COVID-19 SPECIFIC
Best Practices Guidelines into my daily routine since March 2020.
Masks are a given. Social distancing is my friend.
I've put my totally eco-friendly service on hold for the time being
and am working with a combination of the usual lovely green cleaning products
and disinfectants that have been designated
for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19,
based on the EPA’s Emerging Viral Pathogen Policy.
I do my homework and will keep on top of this as new information comes to light.
COVID-19 has upped the ante, but with a bit of perspective and precaution, it's do-able.
I would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have
concerning the safety and efficacy of the service I provide.
