Hi, we're the Carfagnos.
We started the family solo cleaning company a few months prior to Ken leaving his engineering job. It was supposed to give us MORE time with our family, but quickly overwhelmed us. We needed a major change...
Presentation Cleaning was born.
Ken was cleaning for the realtors & stagers of Coldwell Banker, learning how to "present" homes for sale. This was so fulfilling for us as it blended Ken's eye for detail with Teresa's flare for design. We helped many homeowners sell their homes faster & at higher prices. That's when we made the connection. 'What if we could do this for homeowners every visit as our niche to give them peace of mind?' A service like this would give homeowners their Sundays back and their home would return to clutter-free, dirt-free at least twice per month. This idea took root and the Carfagno Cleaning Signature of "Presentation Cleaning" spread around the Capital District of New York.
It works for small offices too.
Some of our house cleaning clients started recommending us to small offices to duplicate our model. Many janitorial services do basic maintenance and did not have our background & training. We were able to create a consistent weekly presentation cleaning service to impress their clients & staff.
We got our time back.
Ken became the Presentation Cleaning Specialist as Teresa stayed home to homeschool & raise the kids. We didn't hire, choosing to fully serve a limited number of clients. This strategy paid off and allowed us to enjoy the time we wanted as we provided a valuable service to our community.
