    Our President, Grace Reynolds, was recently interviewed for an article published today in Arianna Huffington's Thrive Global! The topic was "big ideas that can change the world". 

    Here at the AHCA, we don't think our mission can change the world...we KNOW it will. In fact, it has already helped change many people: from cleaners getting the courage to respect themselves, to standing firm in their business decisions, to the general public seeing the hard work cleaners do and acknowledging they deserve more respect. Join us on this journey..be a part of HISTORY for the cleaning industry! 

    Check out more about what Grace says about the AHCA, its mission, and the cleaning industry in her interview with Christina D. Warner!

    Everyone has their own method for cleaning things. Some take a more "green" approach (which can take longer), and others use harsher chemicals for a quick (albeit less body/Earth friendly) way to tackle the mess. 

    Either way, we at the AHCA believe that there is no 1 singular method that works for everyone across the line. There are far too many factors that can come into play. Cleaning is an art, a skilled trade, and you must do what works for you, your specific area, and your abilities

    Whether you are just starting out, been in the game but looking to switch it up, or you just enjoy reading new methods...this article (featuring AHCA CBDO Sheryl Milligan) provides a multitude of approaches for deep cleaning your oven, as well as maintaining its cleanliness throughout the year!

    Happy cleaning!

    Our Servant's Heart Team is always on duty looking for professional house cleaners in our community who are doing extraordinary things in their local communities!

    As leaders of this movement, we recognize that society is able to understand the importance of the professional house cleaning industry and the amount of knowledge, skill, & effort required to operate as a professional cleaner when they are educated and offered a chance to meet the people behind the businesses that are leaders in their local communities. 

    When our team learned that community members Adrianne Holston and Autumn Jiles of Clean Heart Cleaning Service are cleaning and leading with Servant's Hearts down in Alabama, we were thrilled to hear that Sheldon Haygood WBRC of WBRC FOX6 was interested in featuring this story! Thank you for believing in and supporting our mission, Sheldon! We appreciate you! ❤️

    Why do we do what we do? Adrianne Holston is spot on when she says, "The reward when we're done [with a cleaning] is amazing and I'm not talking about the money... i'm talking about the feeling."

    And then this...
    "This is a business to us," says Autumn Jiles. "We provide a professional service, not just grab a mop and clean. There is more to it and we want people to know about it."

     Great going, ladies!  ❤️
    We are proud of what you are doing down there in AL and to call y'all family! Thank you for both for representing our mission & professional house cleaners so well & leading with a Servant's Heart!

    "Clean Heart is part of a national movement, '#NotJustACleaningLady,' that is sweeping the country. The company is also about community and is on a mission to not just clean people's homes, but also help those in need. Clean Heart Cleaning Services is located at 509 Jackson Avenue West, Oneonta, Alabama 35121." - Sheldon Haygood, 6WBRC

    Anyone who has traveled overnight knows: Cleanliness is valued above all other amenities when choosing a place to stay. 

    Vacation Rentals are no exception. In fact, many argue that their cleanliness is even more important than a hotel. 

    Why? Many hotels are either chains or offered at lower nightly rates than vro's. One bad review isn't likely to impact them much. However, someone staying in a vro is more likely to pay higher rates nightly for the luxury of having an entire space to themselves. They are able to rate the cleanliness of their stay, and one bad review could be detrimental to the owner (who trusted you to clean it well). 

    Read more if you own a VRO and need tips on how to find a great cleaning crew, or if you are looking to get into the vro cleaning side. AHCA CBDO Sheryl Milligan offers insight into what to look for as an owner and a cleaner to make sure everyone has a perfect vacation! 

    How to Manage Housekeepers

    AHCA Founder Grace Reynolds is the queen of motivation. Not only is she the Founder and President of the AHCA, she also sits on the board of directors, runs a local maid service, is the leading influencer in the cleaning community, offers mentoring to others, and has 10 kids (+ one on the way). WHEW!

    With a crazy busy schedule like hers, it would be SO easy to get overwhelmed and just want to quit. Especially with the hurdles of guiding a global movement, a revolution if you will. But that doesn't stop her. Grace's motivation really boils down to one thing..YOU. Knowing that she is helping each of you and forging this path that noone has done before, it keeps her from giving up. Sure there are other influencers that have come before, but this is the first time someone is using their megaphone for the voice of the whole, for helping all cleaners instead of their own bottom line. We don't have all the answers. But together, we can answer anything. 

    Read more about Grace's motivation, and 27 other tips to stay motivated when you need it! https://hear.ceoblognation.com/2019/02/27/entrepreneurs-share-their-tips-and-tricks-of-staying-motivated/?fbclid=IwAR3eGY6hoyuvbWOPFnNLckNvS1AXS5GtMKH-nJAVGZT6QfMnBD7rFyG4bDk
