Winter House Cleaning - More Grime Than Time

Welcome to our third issue of More Grime Than Time’s newsletter, designed for our clients to help keep you informed of our policies and procedures, and to offer tips to help us help you maintain your clean home!

Happy 2019! It’s a New Year, and there are a bunch of new things happening around the More Grime Than Time offices. We would like to let you know of a few of them.

MGTT – Policies and Procedures

While we never ask our residential clients to sign a contract, we have developed a list of Policies and Procedures that will help your experience with MORE GRIME THAN TIME run smoothly. We send this document out to all new clients; if you haven’t received it and would like to see a copy, shoot us a quick email. We will be highlighting several of these policies and procedures in this and in future newsletters.

Our New Website!

I love, love, love our new website! If you haven’t had the chance to check out our newly redesigned website, please do so. I may be biased but I think it’s beautiful, and it works nicely on any format whether you’re viewing it on your computer, tablet or smart phone. I would love to hear what you think – check it out at

In case you’re wondering or should you or your company need a website overhaul, ArcMinute Marketing did the work for me at a very reasonable rate. Ben and Greg at ArcMinute are very knowledgeable and helpful and, since theirs is a small operation, they give very personalized service. Visit them at

Pets - More Grime Than Time

Our Beloved Pets

Yes, love is in the air, and what do we love more than our pets? Cleaning up after them, however, can be a challenge. My dog, Penny, is one of those “no-shed” varieties. Right!…it seems all dogs shed to varying degrees. Our vacuums are specially designed to suck up pet hair, even from hard-to-reach places such as under most furniture. And our vacuums empty into sealed bags that can be removed and thrown away, as opposed to “bagless” vacuums that can let dust & other particles back into the air as they’re being emptied. Pet messes on carpet, however, can be a different story.

I have a fabulous carpet cleaner, Jamal from OxiFresh of Novi who cleans carpet well for a reasonable price, and he’s such a friendly, nice, accommodating person. Contact me for more information should your carpet require a little more attention than our vacuuming can provide.

Because we all love our pets so much, I wanted to reiterate our policy on pets as we enter your home to clean:
We love our clients’ pets! But for their own safety and the safety of our cleaners, please be sure they are crated or placed in the basement or that some other arrangements are made to ensure our safety.
Sometimes, though pets are friendly when their owners are home, they become nervous and can bite strangers entering the home when the homeowners are away. We would very much like to avoid these situations if at all possible.
