A New Start To An Established Reputation

August 2018

After exchanging ownership with my friend Morgan, I have learned that running a cleaning business takes a lot out of your day to day life (at least more than a 9-5). The customers have been great and our staff has worked hard to make our customers happy. I am looking forward to the future of growing this company and furthering our relationships!

Review

As of spring, we have decided to change our processes from how they were being run in the past. Having an automatic booking system had caused conflicting customer/employee expectations, which only made for unsatisfied customers. Now that we have introduced free estimates, operations have been smooth sailing. Natalija, our new supervisor, has been great at explaining exactly what job is going to be completed after an estimate. 

Our commercial and janitorial work has been on that rise and with that comes more employment. We try to offer the best work experience with fair wages for our employees so that we can hold onto long term staff. They are the backbone to having a healthy business and I try my best to treat everyone with respect. 

Just wanna say thanks to everyone who has been apart of PG Clean - our customers on all ends of the commercial, janitorial, and residential side, and to the great staff that has been involved in making this year a success. There will be more posting in the months to come.

 

 

UNBC Global Health Initiative Sponsor

This week we were contacted by a student at the UNBC Medical Program who was looking for sponsors for this years Global Health Initiative Fundraiser. This gave a great new reason to issue a new discount code! 10% off, and 10% will be given to the students!

The discount code is: HelpNepal! and can be plugged in at pgclean.com/bookings

The Cause!

What a great opportunity to help out another community so in need. Its wild to think that just one month in to this business I'll have the chance to help people halfway across the world!

The Sickle Cell Screening project involves a group of 8 medical students traveling to Dang Province to draw and screen blood samples from a community of approximately 2000 individuals for the Sickle Cell trait, a disorder affecting the blood’s ability to carry oxygen. Those diagnosed will be provided with counselling, and with increased awareness we hope the Nepali government will provide medical support and funding for these individuals. We estimate it will cost $10 in materials for each person screened. All money raised for this project will go directly to the community screening project, and funding support staff from Kathmandu to oversee this project.

There is a link to the page from last year, you can go there to see videos and pictures from the trip or read a little about the trip and the people involved.

The Fundraiser!

The fundraiser will be held at UNBC on Feb 25. PG Clean has provided a 100$ gift certificate to be sold in a silent auction, as well as issued a discount code that will get the customer 10% off, while another 10% will be donated to the students.

Feel free to use the discount code to earn these students some well deserved dough!

Launch!

Well, we did it. PG Clean has launched.

The goal is and always has been to give the best and easiest to use cleaning booking service in Prince George.

After two weeks of service this has gone reasonably well! We have completed two jobs, and quoted a few more than that. Something could be said about humble beginnings but I'll leave that alone for now.

All in all I'm pretty happy with the progress, I've interviewed many cleaners, picked some good apples, and we are on the way to providing great service to our customers. After offering many different discount codes, advertising on google, and in general trying to offer services to friends it seems to be that Prince George is a little hesitant to try new things. I'll assume that the reason is that the people of Prince George have started, and are loyal to their relationships with existing cleaners.

I hope to earn that same loyalty with our future jobs and become a staple service in the community that I grew up in.
