Alice Marshal has been a Social Worker for 15 years. She has spent a lot of time in filthy environments and would go home and start cleaning everything in sight. She needed to find a balance between what she saw all day and her home. When she goes to a place of business she has a habit of zoning in on what needs to be cleaned and how it could be done. Then one day her sister said “too bad you didn’t go into cleaning for a living, you should have a cleaning company.” Alice thought what a great idea and started talking to businesses about it. Her first cleaning job was with a local surgeon for 2 years, Alice learned a lot about contamination, germs, bacteria and viruses while working for them, she then expanded into home cleaning and opportunities came to her by the word-of-mouth.
Alice has studied under Don Aslett, reading his books and attending seminars and he kept saying “you need to get good at one thing and specialize in it”. She took his research and saw that the number one thing people don’t like to clean are bathrooms and toilets are tops in that category. So she has built her specialty around bathrooms. She has helped out on many projects to help people claim back their homes, she cleans churches, offices, gas stations, and does clean up after parties and events.
Squeaker Cleaners will be celebrating their 4th anniversary of business this month. Her goal for Squeaker Cleaners is to concentrate on businesses; to go in and deep clean their facility so that the employees can maintain it, then she could come in 4 or 5 times a year. Her dream is that one year she will be able to start a community project to help people de-clutter their homes, whether it is after a surgery or if they have a sick child, she would also like to pair with CPS to teach people how to take care or their homes so that they might be able to get their children back and be able to care for them. Her motto is “If I can’t clean it, it can’t be cleaned!” and her business hours are by appointment.
