Buckets & Bows Maid Service owner and president Debbie Sardone is passionate about house cleaning! She founded her own residential cleaning company 35 years ago and she’s grown it into a successful million dollar business, well known in the local community for its tenure and for gifting free cleanings to women battling cancer. But Debbie isn’t just passionate about her own success. She’s equally passionate about teaching other maid service owners how to grow their companies, helping them move from cleaning houses themselves to leading their businesses, just like she did. So, in late June, Debbie hosted her two-day intensive Speed Cleaning for the Pros training conference for over 40 maid service business owners from around the US and Canada. They came to hear the expert…from learning her systematic approach to cleaning with consistency and speed to understanding her compensation strategies for reducing employee turnover and motivating high performance. They came to soak up the first hand knowledge and experience of someone who knows the specific challenges they face as maid service business owners. For many of the participants, Debbie is sort of a savior. You can hear it when conference participants share their stories. Overcome with emotion, tears welling, they share that they had almost given up on their business and were close to shutting their doors, how they found their way to Debbie — from a referral, a cleaning conference speakers list, a Google search– and how she offered encouragement, hope and, most importantly, real answers and how to’s. The Speed Cleaning for the Pros conference is also an opportunity for owners to develop their training managers with Debbie’s Training Manager Boot Camp and to exchange ideas with other maid services in an environment where competition for business isn’t a distraction.

Stay tuned for more details about the next Speed Cleaning for the Pros conference scheduled for January 2018.
