Who Is Sweet Serenity Homes?
Sweet Serenity Homes was established in 2014 by business owner Marilyn Knight. Marilyn has been a proponent of housekeeping services for many years — not because she doesn’t know how to clean her house, but rather because she would prefer to spend her time doing other things. As years went by, conversations among friends seemed to frequently move toward questions like: “Who is your housekeeper now?”, “Does she do a good job?” Is she reliable?,” and so forth. You think you find someone you like, then she wants to bring her grandkids to work, or has to take off in the middle of the job to do an errand, or else shows up late, dressed in sweats and bedroom slippers, with no makeup and her hair unkempt. Maybe she just doesn’t show up at all!
After giving this much thought, Marilyn started doing research into founding her own housekeeping business. In doing so, she discovered the idea of team cleaning. This is not a new concept, but there was no one in the Garden City area that had taken on the task of a professional team housekeeping business. The idea was amazing, because a six hour cleaning job for one housekeeper would take a team of four only one and a half hours. This meant that clients would no longer have to take the entire day off just to get their house clean.
After several long months of research, legal paperwork, insurance paperwork, writing training manuals, testing products, ordering equipment and, of course, interviewing applicants for the task at hand, Sweet Serenity Homes was born.
Hiring the right employees for the job was — and still is — the most important part of the business. Sweet Serenity Homes housekeepers must be sharp, have a good attitude, work well in a team environment, and treat clients with absolute respect.
Sweet Serenity Homes continues to research new flooring products, countertops, sinks, and more. They make an effort to learn the best procedures and supplies available for the continued maintenance of their clients’ homes and businesses, and take the time to train each staff member in all areas of the cleaning cycle.
