If you’ve ever gotten a walk thru or cleaning from Clean Affinity, we hope you got the feeling that we are a family company. I sometimes bring my son, Lysander, with me to work and to walk thrus and sometimes to cleanings if that’s what needs to be done. I thought it would be fun to do an interview with the little guy as he is part of our green cleaning family. So here goes!
Joanna: So, Lysander, what is your role at Clean Affinity?
Lysander: Well, I am quite new to the company and am still learning the ropes. I would say my most important job is being as cute as possible so that all the lovely ladies at Clean Affinity get their daily baby fix. I’m mostly here to be adorable. I’m hoping that I will be able to move up in the company.
Joanna: What would you like to do next at Clean Affinity?
Lysander: Right now, I’m working on perfecting the art of pulling all the cleaning cloths out of the hamper and throwing them around the shop, so they cover the maximum surface area. I’ve been told I need to focus my efforts on more productive tasks, but I’m not sure what that’s supposed to mean because I did accidentally clean up a spill that way once. I’m hoping I will be allowed to play with the toilet brush soon, but my mom says I can’t until I lose the tendency to explore my surroundings using my mouth. I get pretty upset when I’m not allowed to play with the toilet brush. I have been allowed to help with window cleaning, and that’s pretty exciting, but I’m kinda short, and I’m not allowed on the ladders.
Joanna: What’s your favorite part about working for Clean Affinity?
Lysander: Well, I don’t work for Clean Affinity as I’m under age, I’m more of a volunteer. But I would say that meeting and getting to know our clients is super fun – we work for some of the coolest people in Portland. It also makes me feel good to know that I have an opportunity to work with such great people here. Everyone is always so nice and upbeat it’s a joy to get up early to come into the shop to greet everyone and slow them down a bit as they get ready for their day. I’m proud of the level of customer service we provide to our clients.
Joanna: What are your goals for 2018?
Lysander: Well I’m turning one next week, and I think it’s going to be an outstanding year for me. I’m hoping I can help further the business goals by taking long naps and going to bed early and sleeping at least 12 hours a night. I enjoy being part of the CA family providing green cleaning services to our clients and their families. It gives me warm, fuzzy feelings.
Joanna: Why do you think the green cleaning that Clean Affinity provides is the best in Portland?
Lysander: I know we offer the best cleaning service in Portland. We are really psyched about working with the Clean Via company which provides our liquid product. It has no dyes, no perfumes, is plant-based, non-GMO… I’ve sampled it once, it didn’t taste very good, but it sure does clean well! We spend a lot of time training our technicians in our magical green cleaning method. OK… it’s not really magic, it’s just a lot of elbow grease and attention to detail. But it works and our clients love it! It’s all about those details that really set our service apart. I love hearing our clients comment about how their home smells clean, but not like cleaning products… their house smells like their house without all the funk.
Joanna: If you could tell everyone enjoying this interview one thing about our service, what would it be?
Lysander: I would probably tell everyone is reading this interview that we would love to hear what your most significant domestic challenges are because we have the motto: “There are only solutions.” All it takes is a quick phone call or to fill in the information on our contact form, and we’ll be in contact with you lickity split. Thanks!
