Our Story

I was completing a small writing draft about who we are and what our story is. I got a little carried away, but when all was said and done, I was quite happy with it. I had added it to our "About" page and wanted to include it here as well.-----

We are a family owned and local company - our children, and our team member's children's college fund depends on us... Lets just say, we think what we do is very important.

Yes, we clean homes and are really rather good at it - but our primary business is TRUST. You let us into your home - and we know it is not easy letting just anyone in. Our actions, dependability, communication, structure, and care for you (your family and home) is what sets us apart. It is something you need to see, feel, and value - before you can decide that you found the right service company. We are not the cheapest, nor the quickest, and if we continue to do things right, we never will be.

We are very transparent with our core values, which we use in EVERY facet of our business. They are simple, but oh-so-powerful... 1. Help Out 2. Be Real 3. Make Money 4. Have Fun.

We primarily service residential properties in Bradenton, Sarasota, Osprey, Nokomis, Parrish and Lakewood Ranch. We are a company that is working hard to increase the local standards in customer service, operations, and cleaning quality. Like it, or not, we only use Green Certified, organic, and/or Eco-friendly products that are safer for you and us.

We are proud members of the Sarasota Green Business Partnership and Manatee Chamber of Commerce. Our company is also one of ten designated Healthy Sarasota County Worksites, sharing values and wellness practices along others, such as: The City of North Port, Children's World, and Sarasota Memorial Healthcare System. Along with several certifications from the International Janitorial Cleaning Services Association that not only sound fancy, but actually educate us in topics such as: Green Cleaning Practices, Customer Service, and Chemical Hazards.

We started in 2012 wanting, actually needing, additional income. Individually family members quickly found their strengths and concentrated on what they were good at - and what needed to be done - with a common goal, which at that time was, grow. From testing products and solutions, deciding that Dyson vacuums are all that we will ever use, to making mistakes and learning from them. We had adapted systems and procedures until the time we needed to employ additional members.

Years later, and working out of our garage with several employees, we knew it was time to move up into a larger space. Our goals were always focused on four areas that tie each other for equal importance. 1. Trust 2. Our Employees 3. Our Clients 4. Quality.

We still have these four areas embedded into our hearts - but our core values sum all of these up (1. Help Out 2. Be Real 3. Make Money 4. Have Fun).

As a family, a business, and member of the community - our plan is to continue to grow and establish ourselves as the “go-to” company. So many people can clean. We want to do that, while also being a leader in the industry on education, guidance, and solutions on what you need solved. More time with the family? Need to work from home? Is it to painful to move around and clean? Do you have better things to do? Was the last place unprofessional? Did they no-call-no-show? We want to help you find a solution to your pain.

Can we help every one? Nope. Would you really want us to, if we were your company? We will always give it our best to assist customers that understand, agree, and maybe even share our values.

This is Our Story, to date - but, we are always working on the next chapter.

From Our Family To Yours - 2017 Winter Newsletter

CCGC IN 2017

It seems to be a habit that in the winter issue I always write “December already?!”, it would not be in my style to omit it…so here it is again… December Already?!

From Earth Day in Oscar Scherer Florida State Park, to leadership training, to Hurricane Irma, and even opening and moving into our office/warehouse space. The year itself has been quite eventful and I look forward to writing and sharing a little bit about our adventure with you.

As the year progressed you might have seen some teams change. I know that we do our best to attract and keep great talent such as we have now. It is also understood that the cleaning positions are not glamourous, and that people will always have life, education, relocation, and family goals.

We take care of our CCGC Family and nurture each team member to not only do a great job with us, but to see their dreams form into reality. Granted there has been some turnover to find the right fit; but we did experience several bittersweet instances where staff have moved onward to start families, continue education, and a new page in life – and we love being a part of that!

 As we continue to grow, I am sure you will see new faces and meet great people that represent us and provide excellent service. Please welcome them as you would us, as we are one big family! 

Just as we have great team members – Aracelly, Shannon, and Lexi… Izabela, Kristina, Izabella, Xavier, and Steven (yup, that’s me) will continue to assist with, improve, communicate, and represent all we stand for as a company and family.

The work we do is not just for us, for the community, or environment… It is for you.

We love what we do, we love helping, we love being a part of your families, your household, your conversations, and lives.

The biggest “Thank” we can all give, is to you. So, THANK YOU for being you, for trusting and supporting us.

Thank you!
