ST. CLAIRSVILLE - In one way or another, everyone has been affect by cancer, whether it be through you or a loved one. In between all of the doctors visit and treatments, little things like cleaning your house tends to fall through the cracks. That is why Top Notch Cleaning is offer a free cleaning to anyone whose family member or even themselves have cancer.
"The Mother's Touch program is something I have had in mind ever since we were opening the business. My Mother, Denise, passed away when I was young, only about seven or eight years old from cancer," said Austin Straub, Owner of Top Notch Cleaning. "We have a staff member whose family member is currently battling a form of cancer. Everyone has been affected by cancer in some way and I just know it is a need that is out there."
The free cleaning will be down by one of Top Notch Cleaning 20 employees. Those who do get the free cleaning are not obiligated to use Top Notch Cleaning in the future. If the recipient or their family would like a cleaning in the future, Top Notch will make it as affordable as possible. All that they ask is that the residence be within a 30 mile radius of St. Clairsville and to be flexible when it comes to the scheduling. They plan on doing one or two free cleanings a week.
Top Notch employees will wear Top Notch polos with either black pants or khakis and will have an HHR with the logo on the side. The free cleaning will include high and low dusting, floors, sinks and counter tops and making the beds, doing dishes and taking out the trash.
"When you are going through Chemo and different treatments for cancer or when you are a family member driving back and forth and helping someone through that, the last thing that is on your mind is cleaning and with the holidays coming up, it can help take a burden off," said Straub. "If we can help (ease that burden) with a free cleaning then we are doing our job and serving the purpose of The Mother's Touch program and that is where I got the name, obviously, is in honor of my mother."
Top Notch Cleaning has been open less than a year and currently has 20 employees. They have five day crews with a couple evening shifts. More information can be found on their website www.tnclean.com.
