Kleaning for Kids
A Joint Project Between ARCSI and the Ronald McDonald House Charities
ARCSI is proud to announce the launch of Kleaning for Kids, a joint project with local Ronald McDonald House Charities. Through the generous support of ARCSI’s member volunteers, ARSCI will provide residential cleaning services at no charge to the Ronald McDonald Houses in their communities.
There are more than 180 Ronald McDonald Houses (RMHC) across the United States and Canada, and they each have different needs. ARCSI will have a local liaison near each RMHC to work with the local volunteer coordinator. Assistance from ARCSI member companies will be strictly volunteer and will be based on how much time each owner feels they can provide, which could be two hours a month to two hours a week. Whatever ARCSI members can do to assist will make things better for families staying at RMHC.

Spencer Dean Honored with National Humanitarian Award
Mastercare Home Cleaning
Cleaning for a Reason “Rememberance Award”
When Spencer Dean’s wife died from ALS in 2004, at 48, he learned firsthand how important it is to have help keeping a household together, especially when there are children to take care of and medical bills to pay.
Through the generosity of friends and neighbors, Dean was able to have in-home help with cleaning, cooking, and laundry. Now he’s giving back to the community that supported him and his family by providing something of real value to courageous local women battling cancer.
MasterCare Home Cleaning Services, Dean’s professional Santa Barbara maid-service company, has been awarded the exclusive “2009 Remembrance Award” by the Cleaning for a Reason Foundation for providing more free house cleanings for women undergoing cancer treatments than any other cleaning company in the United States.

We've had them every two weeks for over a year now . they clean the whole house. the workers are very polite. were normally not home, but they've never broken anything, so im assuming that they are careful. we like the quality and dependability. we tried another service years ago, but they stole some checks from us, so we were reluctant to try it again. but prestigious cleaning is a local Kennesaw company, and the owner is well thought of in the community, so we thought we give it another try. my wife and I both work, and weŕe not always home, so we needed someone that we could trust--that is the biggest thing. I would give them an A.
Prestigious Cleaning came out and cleaned my house. theyre very professional and thorough, and theyre very nice ladies. they brought their own cleaning supplies. what I liked most was the general professionalism of the people who came. they really looked good and professional, and they had uniforms ofn. they're hard workers--they don't fool around. I've had them now three times. I first thought of selecting them because of one of my neighbors. I would give them an A+.
Prestigious Cleaning did whole-house cleaning for me. I had started out with just the initial cleaning, and then because of the quality of their service, I switched to a biweekly program. I would give them an A+.
They cleaned up a rental home, and everything was perfect. I got my full deposit back, and I didn't have any problems with the leasing agent or anything. I didn't have to go back, and I didn't have any problems. they were on time and did a good job. I would give them an A.
This organization has been one of the biggest blessings to me as I move into the growth phase of my business.This connection means so much when you feel you're out there all alone putting out the fires.
