Do you know anyone that has not
been touched by cancer?
The big C. I can honestly say
that I wish I knew not one person living with cancer. I believe that cancer has touched us in some
way, a family member, a friend, an acquaintance, a co-worker.
I first heard of Cleaning for A Reason ten years ago while cleaning at the Cancer Support Community of Greater Philadelphia, formerly known as Gilda’s Club, located in Warminster, PA. Giving back to my community has always been of importance to me.
As a single mother of four, I understand the immense responsibility and work it takes to maintain a clean and comfortable home. Over the past twenty plus years cleaning for my community, my customers have become like family. We share our struggles, joys, and milestones with each other. We not only celebrate our successes but also empathize with each other’s hardships. This is why I have partnered with Cleaning For A Reason.
Moreover, Cleaning For A Reason ensures those suffering from cancer and undergoing treatment are able to have a clean, comfortable home and environment. They are able to focus on their recovery while we focus on their home.
In fact, many of my clients that
we have served through Cleaning For A Reason have stated that having a clean
home not only takes care of the physical aspects of recovery but also the
heart, mind, and soul.
The nonprofit organization
originally started with a phone call from a woman with cancer to Bucket and
Bows Maid Service located in Texas. That
woman could not afford the service and hung up.
Debbie Sardone, the owner of that maid service, then started Cleaning
For A Reason.
Additionally, Cleaning for A Reason initially provided free home cleaning services to women across America and Canada. This year Cleaning for A Reason has opened up their services to women, children, and men. We believe that no one should face cancer alone and until there is a cure, there is Cleaning for A Reason. To date 33,000 women have been served, 1200 participating maid services and 11,000,000 donated house cleaning.
Being part of this movement and non-profit gives me great satisfaction to serve many people struggling with this illness. Not only have many of my customers undergone cancer treatments, but I have witnessed many friends and family struggle with it as well.

CLEAN HOME TO MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN NEED!

We aren’t just cleaning; we are cleaning for a reason!
Maid For You is a proud partner of the non-profit organization Cleaning For A Reason; which has been able to provide almost 40 free cleanings for our local cancer patients to date.
House cleaning is not something that goes away or pauses when you get sick. Unfortunately, it continues to pile up and gets increasingly harder to maintain once cancer treatment has started, and energy depletes.
Maid For You is here to help!
Cleaning For A Reason is a non-profit organization founded by Debbie Sardone. Its focus is to give cancer patients a clean home so they can take care of their health and families.
The organization matches people battling with cancer with professional house cleaning services that have pledged to donate free house cleaning to their local cancer patients.
Sardone founded Cleaning For A Reason after receiving a call from a cancer patient asking for an estimate. On an interview withTODAY.com, Sardone told her story. “She said, ‘Maybe I’ll call you when I can afford it,’ and hung up. And that was before Caller ID. I had no way to call her back”.
Right after that, Debbie made the decision that the next time a woman going through cancer treatment needed her home cleaned, she would do it for free.
Debbie shared the story at a professional cleaning convention and many other company owners, big and small, said they wanted to do just the same.
That’s when she finally took it upon herself to make it happen and created Cleaning For A Reason. Currently, the businesses who offer their services do not charge anything to the patients. However, the employees do get paid for their work.
Its an honor for Maid For You to be a part of this organization. So that we can bring happiness and relief to many women in our town, it is a blessing to lighten a load for these patients by relieving some of the burdens of their situation.
“To be able to provide a little light on their darkest days is a feeling unlike any other” – Lisa Ciao, Owner
Currently, there are 1200 maid services associated with Cleaning For A Reason. We only hope to see the number grow! Please share and help us help our community!
