Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Belle Home Housecleaning!
Three questions with Karen Larkin Jaser, owner of Belle Home Housecleaning.
Why did you start your business?
Having seen the need for a reliable, detailed, friendly housekeeping service, I started Belle Home Housecleaning in 2005. We hire friendly, pleasant, energetic people that we train in the "Belle Home" cleaning method - detailed, efficient common-sense cleaning - and we assign one cleaner to each Customer for a very personalized, cheerful, professional experience.
Finish this sentence in regard to your business. “I wish I could…”
I wish I could let people know about "Cleaning for a Reason" (Cleaningforareason.org) - a wonderful national organization to which we belong. CFR matches women undergoing cancer treatments with local participating housecleaning services. Belle Home provides free house cleaning services for typically two to three cancer patients at a time. These patients are dealing with energy-robbing medical treatments, and we come in at no charge to the patients - and scrub, polish, vacuum, dust and make their homes sparkle. We love to make their lives a little easier!
What is your best selling product/service?
Weekly and biweekly housecleaning services are our best selling services, although we also do office cleaning, Air Bnb cleanings and moving cleans as well. Our typical Customer will have us in to do the housekeeping either daily, weekly or biweekly. Although we clean, organize, change bed linens, and keep our Customers' homes in order for them, what we really provide is the relief of coming home to a clean, comfortable space - and more free time!
